Tony 5 Sub250 FPV Freestyle Frame

Out of stock

FlyFishRC is excited to introduce a new addition to the relatively fresh sub-250g 5” freestyle drone category - the FlyFishRC Tony!

In this modern era, where our hobby meets with aircraft weight restrictions, flying drones larger than 3” has become increasingly challenging. However, we all love a rip on a good old 5” drone, don't we? That's why we believed it was the perfect time to create an exceptionally lightweight 5-inch frame with the potential to craft a sub-250g 5” drone. And that's how Tony came to life.

Our objectives were clear: create a lightweight frame with excellent flight characteristics and durability. While these aims are relatively straightforward with a standard 5-inch frame, working with a sub-250g 5” frame is an entirely different animal. We won't pretend that this frame was developed without any compromises, but we've given our all to make it a frame you'll eagerly take out to fly day after day!

Tony is a straightforward and easy-to-build platform, fully O3-ready, equipped with our signature CNC aluminum camera plates to ensure your valuable camera remains maximally protected during all types of crashes. It's also compatible with analog cameras, VTX, as well as the HDZERO and Walksnail HD systems (Please verify dimensions for compatibility with all VTXs).

We highly recommend using AIO flight controllers to keep the weight as light as possible, although a 20x20 mini stack will also work well.

For instance, to achieve a sub-250g configuration in our test builds, we utilized a 40A AIO FC, CADDX Vista Nebula Pro, 2004 FlyFishRC Flash motors, TBS Crossfire Nano, bi-blade HQ props, GNB HV 380mAh 6S battery, and one battery strap, resulting in an all-up weight of 248.7g.

However, if your intention is to use this frame with the DJI O3 system, the all-up weight of such a setup will increase to around 260g, as the O3 is notably heavier than the Vista. In this case, if staying under 250g is crucial, you might contemplate using a 4S version of the same battery or stripping down the O3 to shave off some of the excess weight.

Overall, Tony is an exciting frame that offers an incredibly enjoyable flying experience. It provides a distinct feeling of being nimble yet not overly floaty due to its lightness. Get your own Tony today and share your feedback online; we'd love to hear about your experience!

good light weight 5" drone but...

been flying this frame since it first came and loving how it flys and specs but the one issue it has is the arms, i have never broke an arm before in the 6 months of flying fpv on any of my other quads and yes i fly light weight quads mainly (apex mini 3&5", diatona L5) but in a smallish crash i smashed one arm off clean and replaced it but a second one had fractured from that crash.
its always brakes right at outer stand off so just needs to be abit thicker there and taper towards the motor like the apex mini arms.
overall good frame ticks all the boxs but arms need a tweak.

great light weight 5" drone IMO

been on a quest to find the best efficiency 5" drone and brought this fram had the apex mini with 5" arms and the diatona roma l5 and this is 15 grams lighter and with a true x configuration as well as a aluminum front end bloody awesome onlt thing is the arms are abit thin imo

Not quite there

Love the frame and idea of lightweight 5inch but the arms are not strong enough.
Bent an arm on second flight with a hard landing. Can't see it would survive any minor crashes.
If arms are redesigned and strengthened at the point of bolting on I'd rate it higher

This is not a Full size 5 inch Frame! You will should use a AIO FC/ESC and size 2004 motors. It will only come with tpu that covers the bottom front two bolts and the VTX antenna holder. No TPU is available for the arms yet so a small piece of foam will be needed to keep your motor screws from breaking. Has enough space for RID if you plan the build right. This thing will fly with as light as it is with the right motors. I recommend using 4s to stay under 250g.

Haven't got it yet

I'll let you know as soon as I get it
