FLIES LIKE A SIMULATOR
Yes, it's that good! Le Pigeon 3.0 frame is a culmination of 14 previous designs that built upon each other to achieve the best performing platform for the naked BMPCC4K cage.

At 250g for this frame, it's not an ultralight, but it's also not a brick. A balance was struck between durability, rigidity, and weight. The added strength with the 3mm plates and 8mm thick arms provides a factor of safety for builders so that even with janky motors and chewed up props, the drone can still fly quite well. On set, nothing ever happens exactly as planned and there are always unforeseen events that as a pilot, you must manage. At least with Le Pigeon frame, you don't have to worry if your footage will be smooth or not.
A new unique feature with this 3.0 frame design is integrated damping between the arms which reduces vibration transmission. In addition, with the H layout the arms are separate from the flight stack screws which makes replacing broken arms much easier.
This frame is designed to be flexible for the builder. The universal camera mounts provided work for either the original DJI camera or the Caddx cameras that go with the DJI FPV system. Convenient placement of zip tie holes and a long fuselage provides plenty of room for your ESCs, flight controller, receiver, Pololu regulators, and DJI air unit.
