We spent extra time testing Räsvelg, because we needed to be sure the frame could take abuse. After several iterations with various arm widths, carbon fiber thicknesses, and configurations, we finally arrived at a 5" version with 5mm replaceable arms and a 3" version with a 3mm unibody plate.
The result is that Räsvelg 5 weighs in at only 75g, and Rasvelg 3 at only 35g.
Räsvelg's canopy is made of insanely durable, 3D-printed white nylon. The material is stiff, yet pliable, resulting in heroic crash-resistance while still maintaining serviceability.
Though Räsvelg's canopies are white, you can dye them any color you like with standard nylon dyes.
Räsvelg was designed to have skinny, yet thick arms for the best possible gains in aerodynamics.
The result is a frame with less surface area, so more of the thrust created by your motors gets turned into forward movement.
Additionally, the canopy's open design creates the least amount of air resistance possible.
We fly hard, and we break battery straps when that flying turns into a certain kind of crashing. Traditionally, replacing a battery strap in the field has always been hugely annoying, with most frames requiring you to weave the strap through small slots.
Räsvelg 5 fixes this with relief in the replaceable arms that allows you to slide your battery strap straight through, no weaving required.
The name Räsvelg comes from the Old Norse, Hræsvelgr, and a giant that takes the form of an eagle and flaps its wings at the end of the Earth to create wind currents.
It's also affectionaly known as "corpse swallower," because it does a bit of that too.
Räsvelg is compatible with the parts you'll see on most builds. However, Räsvelg requires the following:
Räsvelg's included hardware lets you soft-mount mount your PDB and flight controller. The included o-rings help prevent yaw-twitching for those sensitive gyros and motors with N52 magnets.
