“A new frame joins the AEON family… welcome the QX.”
Meet the AEON QX Series
Building off-design features found in the original Soma-designed AEON HD along with the same production process for carbon, the QX is a multi-plate frame incorporating individual arms and central X braced plates.
Fine tuned for Performance
– Single screw arm mount system.
– 5” and 6” arm options for versatile flight style.
– Professional ultralight construction.
– Compact central placement of electronics using our AEON POD system.
Finding the balance between strength and weight is always a hard balance, but the QX keeps both in the forefront. Using 4 mm arms along with 2 mm central plates ensures the weight is kept to a minimal for a multi-plate frame. The strength is found in the design elements that has been researched to ensure it meets our crash-ability happy level.
We take pride in knowing no corners were cut in our quest for top quality carbon and cutting.
Just like our original AEON you’ll notice and feel the difference in our frame compared to many of the other mass-produced frames in the market. Not only is the carbon itself a key, but the way it’s laid and resined has huge impact on the final outcome. The 0-90 degree carbon uni-fibre layup runs length-ways down each arm, maximizing the strength of the carbon and arms. Once cut, each piece is milled with a 0.25 mm chamfer edge and hand finished, giving a silky smooth feel.
The single arm designs allows you to choose which way you want to fly. Racing, freestyle, long range setup or maybe try a 5” prop on 6” arms for the stretch X feel in a standard X configuration. More options coming soon as well for HD camera mounting in our AEON POD and Canopy line.
The fastener set for the QX uses YFS steel screws. After testing many different types they are the best in the market as far as we are concerned. So you can ensure strength upon impact and not having to deal with the stripped heads of the cheaper stuff.
Using the iconic AEON HD arm end design, the motor guards are available for download from Thingiverse or available on Shapeways, so you can ensure your motors are well protected just in case a tree, wall, or gate jumps out in front of you while flying.
