AEON QX Configurator
A new frame joins the AEON family… welcome the QX.
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. Single screw mounting allows for quick and easy arm exchange while keeping the design lightweight. Use the configurator to make your selection of items below.
Build Feature Highlights
Sensible Weight… Focused Strength
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.
Does Carbon Quality Really matter? … Absolutely!
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.
5” or 6”… Your Choice
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.
High Quality Hardware
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.
AEON POD FAQ
Does the AEON POD include hardware?
The AEON POD is a stand alone product to make the plastic parts available as a economical spare part as necessary. To complete the build it will require either our 7075 T6 cold rolled aluminum AEON POD Hardware Set which can be found here or you can use your own hardware to complete.
What are the hardware requirements?
Please refer to the AEON Fastener Set (for POD) to know what hardware requirements are needed based on the type of build you are using.
What electronics fit the AEON POD?
The AEON base is 30.5 mm. inside the POD you’ll find mounting points for 20 mm x 20 mm and 16 mm x 16 mm. Grommet isolated 20 mm x 20 mm FC’s are supported with a isolation maximizing bushes inserted inside the grommets to avoid over compression of the grommets.
The frames support both 30 mm and 30.5 mm mounting. The pod is 30.5 mm, but should still fit the Flyduino KISS CC etc due to the compatibility hole clearance of the KISS series.
30.5 mm – Most 30.5 mm 4in1 ESC or AIO on the market will fit with the spacers that are available in the POD Set.
20 mm x 20 mm – The 20 mm x 20 mm is more compact so while many boards may fit some will not if they have a lot of extra PCB sticking out past the mounting points. Also check positioning of the USB / UART connectors do not interfere. The connectors need to be orientated underneath the board and to either side to clear the pod sides (by flipping the FC upside down if necessary). Limited clearance is allowed for in the front / rear under board directions.
16 mm x 16 mm – The 16 mm x 16 mm on the top is also a compact area for use of mounting 16 mm x 16 mm boards. A 16 mm x 16 mm CF plate will be available to mount smaller VTXs.
Refer to the compatibility table below for further details concerning confirmed compatible components or open a new service ticket if in doubt.
What cameras fit the AEON POD?
The included stock hood is made to use with the Runcam Micro Swift 2. The included camera spacers/washers can be used with the Runcam Micro Arrow or some other 19 mm cameras on the market, and also for more or less tilt than the hood supported from 15 to 45 degree angle. Refer to the table below for further camera compatibility details or open a new service ticket if in doubt.
