Next Level Multi-Rotor frames are designed to be used in a wide variety of applications, and are built to stand up to the rigors of everyday flying. We use high quality components in our frames, such as CNC cut fiberglass reinforced FR4 board for the Center Body, Motor Mounts and Legs, high-strength extruded aluminum alloy tubes for the Frame Arms, threaded aluminum stand-offs and stainless steel hardware for strength and corrosion resistance. These components work together to create a rugged assembly that will withstand even the most demanding commercial or industrial uses for many years.
To compliment the new Next Level Multi-Rotor frames, a complete line of optional parts are available including shock absorbing landing gear kits, larger motor mounts, camera mounts, battery mounting plates and cover plates. This allows each user to customize their frame to meet their exact needs. The modular design of these frames allows for endless configuration and upgrade possibilities, so they will never become obsolete.
The parts for the 500mm and 650mm frames are all interchangeable, allowing your frame to be re-configured as your needs change. For example, you can start with a basic 500mm Quad frame, and add a camera plate for aerial photography or FPV work. Later on, if you want a larger machine, you can simply purchase a set of 650mm arms, and convert your 500mm frame to a 650mm frame. You can even start with a quad frame, and then buy the parts to convert it to a hex configuration later on if desired.
If more power is desired, the stock motor mounts can be replaced with the High Power Motor Mount kit, that will allow you to upgrade your motor size from the standard 22mm motors and use 28mm, 30mm or 35mm motors to power your Next Level frame for additional lifting power and payload capacity. A complete assortment of spare parts are also available to repair the frames in the event of an "unscheduled landing".
A complete illustrated 28 page assembly manual is included in the kit to guide you through the assembly process. This manual takes you step-by-step through the build process, and also explains some basic theory about quad-copter operation. Common configurations for several different popular flight controllers boards are also listed for quick reference.
The recommended power system for this size frame is a set of four 2212 or 2213 motors with a Kv value in the 900 to 1100 range for sport flying, four matching speed controllers, a set of 9 inch props and a 3-cell Li-Po battery with a capacity of 2200mah or higher.
For FPV work or aerial photography more power is required. For this the recommended power system is a set of four 2215 or 2217 size motors with a Kv value in the 900 to 1100 range, four matching speed controllers, a set of 10 inch props and a 3-cell battery pack with a capacity of 3300mah or higher.
