Atto Sniper Frame Hybrid
The Sniper is Atto's first signature frame, designed in collaboration with Dutch pilot Bas Van T Hul (Sniper_X). He wanted a frame that was super light and agile but strong enough to race at full speed. It doesn't disappoint. The Hybrid configuration is the version that SniperX flies.
Every feature of the frame is geared towards maximum strength and minimum weight. With 2mm chamfered main plates and 8.5mm x 5mm chamfered arms the 5" bare frame weighs just 60.8g with stainless steel hardware and 7075 25mm standoffs.
The mid plate features installed M3 Steel press fit nuts to lock the arms in place plus options for 20mm and 30.5mm hardware. We expect this to be run on lightweight 20mm setups so access is provided to the stack bolts for this size through the bottom plate with enough space to remove your stack bolts entirely.
The single printed mount houses a micro camera, antenna and turtle fin in one. It attaches securely with no bolts or ties and does not require you to tighten bolts into TPU. Separate mounts for different camera and antenna combinations are available. The top plate features the standard Atto antenna mount so is also compatible with many of the existing
photon prints. Versions of the current mount for other antennas will be released before shipping. You will have the option to choose.
For hardware the choice is stanless steel flanged Torx bolts. Torx bolts never round off and the flange spreads the load over a greater area of carbon. It's the smart option. Standoffs are 7075 aluminium in matte black. Though they are slightly heavier than the usual 6061 versions, the trade off in strength is well worth it. (You'll need a T10 Torx driver for this hardware)
