Update 12/23/2020:

You can now order the Revelation-85A and Revelation-85HD with painted prop guards that will match the Drone Skirt (tm) color of your choice. 

Update 12/17/2020: 

I have made a design change that will now allow for the FC and the VTX or Vista to all be mounted on the top in a low-profile configuration. This reduced the overall weight by eliminating the bottom TPU cover and allowed for a light 25-20 PLA plate to be added on the top. The battery now fastens to the velcro directly at the base of the frame. 

Update 12/15/2020:

During an extreme crash test where the Revelation-85 was flown at full-speed into a basketball backboard, I noticed that the diamond cuts in the arms were a bit weak. I modified the frame to remove the diamonds and add a 20mm circle. While the frame is not expected to handle such an impact, the change proved to be very positive in the secondary test flights. If you ordered the Revelation-85HD or 85A frame and it shipped out prior to 12/15/2020, please contact me and I will ship you a base frame for free. You just cover the minimal shipping.

Update 12/14/2020:

I have decided to change the FC that was used in this build. The new FC used will be the GHF405 25A/35A AIO FC.
