ZMR180 3K Carbon Fiber Mini Quad Released By FPV Model

With small yet full functional FPV, ZMR250 has gained a lot of popularity since its releasing. However, we have received many request of aksing for smaller airframe. Therefore, to meet some FPV enthusiasts requirement, we decided to design a smaller FPV airframe that deserves the ZMR lable. After a lot of tests and revisions, finally the ZMR180 released. Now both ZMR180 frame kit and ZMR180 ARF are available.

The ZMR180 is a symmetric 18mm size airframe that accommodates 4″ props. The 180mm is measured motor shaft to motor shaft diagonally.

Agile, quick and small all fit together with this kit and its a blast to fly. The ZMR180 is a micro quad designed with “fun” in mind. The ZMR180 frame has high quality 3mm bottom plate and a 1.5 mm top plate. Using the same carbon fiber that you find in ZMR250 V2, you can rest assured that this is NOT the run of the mill cheap eBay Carbon Fiber that most others sell. This CF is backed with FPVMODELs name so you can trust that it is top of the line. The ZMR180 is an awesome time to be had and you will find the smaller size can zoom through gaps that were previously not even considered with a 250 sized quad. The ZMR weighs in at 72g including the given mounting hardware and spacers allowing for an ultra-light weight build yet leaving plenty of build room for adding all necessary FPV gear. If you wanna add more muscle, pick the ZMR180 with the larger mounts for 22xx motors.

Hurry up and get yours now, they are “flying” off the shelves.
