Cobra Micro 3" Racing Frame
Cobra Micro 3" Racing Frame
Designed, developed, and tested in Texas!
Enjoy never before seen performance, realism and durability in a 3" racing frame with the Cobra Micro! Individual replaceable arms, 16x16 AND 20x20 stack mounting, 9x9 AND 12x12 motor mounting, as well as all the same performance and features as the bigger 5" Cobra racing frame.
The Cobra Micro 3" racing frame is a miniature version of the ever popular Cobra racing frame. The Cobra Micro 3" retains all the magic of its bigger brother, and delivers it in a smaller package. Perfect for micro racing in the backyard, but still capable enough to fly on a 5" track. It is a light weight, extremely durable, easy to work on airframe designed for high performance FPV Drone Racing.
EXTREME DURABILITY: The Cobra Micro was created to be the ultimate 3" frame in terms of durability. The Cobra Micro retains the innovative CLS (channel lock system) found on the 5" Cobra, which captures the carbon fiber arm at 3 different points with minimal hardware, resulting in a frame with extreme durability. The stack is mounted to a 2mm thick carbon fiber bottom plate, allowing an appropriate amount of flex while still preventing the unwanted energy transfer from an aluminum center plate to your stack in a hard crash. Instead of an aluminum center plate bending beyond repair in a hard crash, the carbon fiber bottom plate absorbs crash energy instead of bending. The CLS plates are located at the front and rear of the frame, and are not connected to the stack in any way. The arms are anchored by the CLS plate in 3 different positions, which completely eliminates "arm wiggle", even after continuous crashing.
EASY MAINTENANCE: Arm changes can be done in 60 seconds! The Cobra Micro's innovative CLS plate design also allows for easy maintenance in the event of a broken arm (broken arms are few and far between). To change an arm, simply remove the screw anchoring the arm to the CLS plate, remove the three motor screws, and slide the arm out.
INTERCHANGEABLE ARMS: Individual, interchangeable arms are often not found on 3" frames. The Cobra Micro retains the same individual replaceable arm design as the 5" Cobra, allowing the pilot to make quick and easy arm changes in the field. No more replacing your entire single-piece bottom plate in a crash. Cobra Micro arms are compatible with 9mm AND 12mm motor mounting patterns, allowing complete flexibility with power train selection.
