Atto Sniper Frame 5"
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.
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 bare frame weighs just 60.8g with stainless steel hardware and 7075 25mm standoffs. The full build pictured above weighs just 265g using a 30.5mm ESC and FC as well as 2207 2650kv motors.
By using so little material it has the added benefit of being our lowest priced 5" frame at just £44.99 despite the premium additions of chamfered carbon, 7075 standoffs and Torx hardware.
This frame is a normal stretch configuration. It is also available as a hybrid and as a 6" short-stretch frame.
The mid plate features installed M3 Steel press fit nuts to lock the arms in place plus options for 20mm and 30.5mm hardware. Access is provided to the 20x20mm FC bolts 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. The top plate features the Atto antenna mount so is also compatible with many of the existing photon prints. Separate antenna and camera mounts are available when ordering or on thingiverse by searching 'attofpv'.
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 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)
