Here at QuadQuestions.com we have several frame styles that we manufacturer using our own proprietary blend of carbon fiber, along with unique machining techniques that make our frames stand out amongst the rest.
There has been some confusion from time-to-time about our branding, and the purpose of this post is to make some clarifications.
QQ 190 falcon V2
For this example, we are going to look at the QQ190 Falcon V2 drone frame
QQ 190 Falcon V2 3mm
QQ Designation- Designed and Manufactured by QuadQuestions
QQ stands for QuadQuestions, and a frame with this prefix designates that it is a QuadQuestions racing drone frame.
Numerical Prefix 190-
Frame Sizing designation
QQ190 Falcon V2
The next prefix denotes the size of the drone frame, for instance, a QQ190 is 190mm from motor center to center. A QQ130 is 130mm from motor center to motor center. This is intended to provide a standardized way of knowing the size of a drone by it’s designation, and also determining the propeller size from said designation. 190mm is the smallest that we can make the QQ190 before 5″ props don’t fit. The idea here is to make the drone as small as possible, which in turn, makes it as fast as possible.
We here at QQ have found the following to be a good starting guide to propeller size:
|general frame diameter||QQ Frame Size||Prop Size|
|150mm & smaller||QQ130||3”|
|190-220mm||QQ190, Sparrow R220||5”|
|450mm & larger||TBS Discovery||9”|
The next designation that we have is the model. There are several models available that might fit into the QQ190 classification. Tank, Falcon, RTF, Knight, R, etc.
And finally, the version is the last part. If there is no version designation, you can safely assume that it is a first version, such as the QQ190RTF. However, some models get updated and after this happens, we will put a designation onto it’s name to denote the version. I.E. QQ190 Tank V2.
The QQ190 itself comes in 3 distinct models at the time of this writing.
QQ190 Tank, QQ190 Falcon, and QQ190 RTF.
These models are all slightly different:
- The Tank is 4mm thick, and beefed up for heavy crashing.
- The Falcon is 3mm Thick and made to maximize the weight-to-perfomance ratio.
- The RTF is made to work specifically with RTF components and has very specific features to fit the RTF hardware.
We absolutely encourage you to purchase and fly the RTF, as it is represents a very large number of ideas and work from many people across several companies, and it is a very advanced product, however, we do understand that many people have the desire to build their own quads, and that’s why we make the Tank and Falcon models.
