Flightclub Proton 5" Race Frame Skeleton Version
FlightClub PROton is finally coming to the Uk in both Canopy and Skeleton Configuration.
After the highly successful TokioX the proton was next in line to be manufactured for the demanding race pilots that want a durable lightweight fpv racing frame.
At the heart of the PROton is the Nucleus plate. It allows PROton to be configured into a total of 10 different frames. The Nucleus plate is a CNC milled 7075 aluminum plate that lets the PROton rock either a canopy or skeleton (standoff) mode. The Nucleus plate features threaded holes for the replaceable arms. This eliminates the need for M3 nuts or capture nuts that either strip or are a hassle to swap arms.
Borrowing a design feature from it’s brother Tokio, the Nucleus plate will have Butter Mounts. Butter Mount is an innovative way to mount the flight controller stack using custom silicon injection molded grommets that virtually eliminates vibrations.
Initially the PROton will be released with 4 arm options – 4″, 5″ Race, 5″ Practice and 5.5″. (Stretch X and 6″ arms will be released soon). The 5″ arms will come in two styles, thinner Race arms and wider more durable Practice arms. We will be stocking the 5" arm version for the time being. This version will ship with the Race 5" arms. Practice arms available separate.
