RR La Mamba 9" x8 BNF is a custom build based on La Mamba frame from top FPV designer Sam Sanford, very versatile and lightweight, portable and powerful rig designed for pro cinematic shots with payload up to 3KG payload.
Description from official frame site: https://strawhataerial.com/products/la-mamba-frame...
After designing the "Banshee" frames and being on set for a few drone shoots, I was able to absorb that experience and knowledge and distill it into my official cinelifter frame, "La Mamba".
La Mamba is lightweight for a 9" X8 cinelifter. This affords the use of convenient 6S 4500-6200mah single 6S Lipos and it will have more punch and agility than any other drone in its class. The smaller motors (2812 900kV recommended) can be used due to the compact staggered frame which allows further weight reduction.
The staggered layout of the arms is required to get the "best of both worlds" when it comes to camera placement. The issue with a centered camera like on the Banshee or Honey Badger, is that props can easily come into view depending on camera tilt angle and lens focal length. On the other hand, if the camera is positioned in the front of the frame like the Siccario or Moneyshot Mini, with the battery behind, the props have to be super wide to accommodate wide camera bodies like the BMPCC4K or the Freefly Wave. The solution is to have the camera sit above the propellers and forward in order to achieve unobstructed FOV yet maintain a tight propeller spacing that is crucial for flight agility and hitting gaps.
The camera quick release mechanism is what La Mamba was designed around. This camera mount is special because it is lighter weight than other solutions out there because it is made from carbon fiber and TPU instead of machined aluminum. In addition, there is no "clean plate", but rather the damping bushings double as both vibration isolators and hinge points for changing the camera angle. If that's not enough innovation for you, then on top of that, the quick release mechanism has adjustable front-to-back locking positions to change how far forward the camera sits on the frame in order to balance the center of gravity with a wide variety of lens choices. All this accomplished with a tool less design!
Thought it ended there? No! The same carbon fiber mechanism is used for the battery quick swap system which not only saves a ton of time changing out flight packs while on set, but also allows further adjustment of C.O.G. to ensure best flight performance. And and while I'm at it, I threw in some foldable landing legs for convenient storage too ;)
With so many features and such a light weight frame, it must have some issues with tuning or durability right? Nope! These arms are 10mm thick and use the same technology as Le Pigeon and Le Puffin by pairing each set of arms together with an intermediate silicone layer to attenuate vibrations. This increases the chance that your tuning experience with La Mamba will be free of headaches.
La Mamba has the professional touches of some more expensive BNF drones out there, but is made accessible to you as a builder with this frame kit! Features like the mountable XT-60 and AS150 plugs ensures there is no fussing around with wires on set when every second counts.
RR La Mamba 9" x8 BNF includes a complete drone build, tuned and tested.
