      Video Tutorials and Instructions:


      The XL5 and XL6 versions were combined to make the XL6. This was due to the fact that more props are now coming a bit larger than just the standard 5" so the arms were extended just enough to allow both 5" and 6" props to run. 

      The base plate was changed from 3mm thickness to 4mm thickness.

      "I refuse to allow anyone, whether it be a Cyclone FPV employee or a mass production company, to cut, build, sand, or otherwise involve themselves in any part of the production of my Cyclone FPV frames. When you order a Cyclone FPV Genesis, you can have peace of mind knowing that I am the only person who will be involved in the entire process. From selecting the sheets of carbon fiber to laying out the CNC, fine-point hand-cutting, hand-sanding, hand-buffing, hand-cleaning, and assembly, I am going to be the only one involved from start to finish. This is what my customers deserve and this is what I am willing to give them. Nothing less."  ~ Tarek Maalouf
