Sparrow Racing Quad R5


The Sparrow R4.1 is currently out of stock and we are accepting orders now for the Sparrow R5. These will be shipping in early April, if not sooner.

These include now standard aluminum hardware (standoffs) and a modification to fit a TBS Unify Vtx to the frame.

You are looking at the new Sparrow Racing Quad.  This is the culmination of many hours of hard work and many new ideas.

We wanted to design a frame that addressed common issues with the current frames on the market.  The result is the unique and beautiful Sparrow.

We are tired of seeing the same box design over and over again, we decided to build a frame that is built in layers, maximizing strength while maintaining a very light weight.

We have addressed common FPV camera mounting issues. The Sparrow provides a Special 3D printed angled camera mount that is vibration isolated from the rest of the airframe.

We have also designed many accessories to maximize your experience with this frame which will all be coming soon and including GPS mounts, angled Mobius Camera Mounts, Angled Go Pro Mounts, Angled motor mounts, nylon landing gear, Titanium hardware and more.



  • 3D FPV Angle adjustable Camera holder
  • Vibration isolated camera mounting system
  • Stainless Steel Hardware
  • replaceable arms
  • layered design
  • 3k carbon fiber (true CF)
  • Frame mounted XT-60 connector & More

This frame is configured differently than other designs currently available on the market, -designed, with compartments to install the electronics, 
such as the FPV Camera, Receiver, Flight controller, Battery, ESCs, and Video transmitter.

  • The 3K 45 degree carbon fiber gives the airframe incredible strength but light weight. 45 degree carbon weave-this is a better carbon fiber to make complex shapes out of, and the Sparrow has it.  We have sent this one out to some mechanical engineers, and the Sparrow R4 is the result of progress. 🙂
  • The Sparrow Racing Quad is a Unique 270mm size airframe that accommodates 5″ & 6″props.
  • The Sparrow Racing Quad is designed to support a 3S or 4S lipo setup, the battery platform can hold up to 2200mAh battery.
  • The frame comes with a great instruction manual.

The weight can be lowered by about 26g by using Sparrow Armor Titanium Screws bringing the total frame weight down to about 190g.

    Love this frame.
    My QAV and others sitting idle now
    Built with a Naze32 rev6 and an OSDoge, littlebee ESCs, cobra 2205 racing editions and 6040 props and it screams
    Using betaflight, custom mix and tuned up PIDs
    Frame is not only beautiful but very resilient, despite my best crashes no damage so far
    Thanks to Anthony for support
