RVS Duke PRO - 5"/5.5" Ultralight Freestyle Frame
Streamlined from the widely loved original Duke, the Duke PRO brings several awesome features to the game! We kept all the features that made the original awesome, and upgraded the rest!
Rethink how freestyle flow can look! Designed to ditch the excess weight and space, for maximum in-flight performance with super smooth lines and curves for days. It's not only a looker, but is laid out to be a rigid air-frame capable of taking a hit, and looks good in the process. The RVS Duke has a versatile design allowing for your battery to be either top or bottom mounted, or heck, even both at the same time! It takes a range of cameras from the RunCam Micro, Mini, Mini Split to the standard Split, so you're not short on options!
The stance is set slightly larger for an ultra stable true-X platform, and smooth performance. This also allows for 5.5" props to be used, if you desire.
From the designer
I've been flying the prototype for months now, and long story short... it has checked all my boxes and then some. For minimalist freestyle, it doesn't get any better!
I wanted a bare-bones freestyle frame where I could swap arms, lower the the CG, minimize the body size while maintaining the ability to top mount my lipo all with a low weight package. After many many hours of design and tweaking, this is the conclusion I arrived at! The low weight combined with the larger props makes for super low disk loading on the props and amplifies efficiency! I absolutely love the final result, and I'm sure you will too! :)
