"The Remix" FPV Freestyle Frame by ummagawd (Purple)
The Ummagawd Remix FPV Freestyle Frame
Our team pilot Tommy Tibajia dreamed of something that existing FPV frames were not able to provide - a truly balanced quad with most of the weight as close to the CG as possible. After over half a year of design work and testing, as well as many iterations of prototypes, Tommy’s dream has come true.
The Ummagawd Remix FPV Frame, unofficially dubbed “the Ummakwad”, has been designed to put most of the weight of the quad as close as possible to the center of gravity. It was no easy task to rethink the way traditional mini quads are built, but the end result looks and performs extremely well!
In order to centralize the weight, the electronic components are installed under the center plate, and the battery is placed sideways across the top of the frame. This gets the bulk of the mass in the very center of the frame and in line with the propellers, the source of thrust. Centralized 4 in 1 ESC systems are favored for this build, to maintain the theme of centralized weight distribution.
Ummagawd's recommended choice of FC/ESC stack:
Hobbywing XRotor F4 MicroCube Flight Controller + 40A 4-in-one ESC

Unlike some frames on the market, the Remix frame is super easy to work on. The bottom cover plate opens like the hood of a car, giving easy access to the electronics stack for building and repair. The arms are also really easy to replace when the limits you are pushing push back on your quad.
The FPV camera on the Ummagawd Remix is mounted in a carbon rollcage of sorts - so it’s protected from crashes that might otherwise destroy the camera or lens. The rollcage is angled upwards, so that it can allow high camera tilt - making it suitable for both freestyle and racing. The rollcage also serves as a tilted mount for a GoPro Session camera, so you’re one step closer to getting great HD footage!
Another interesting feature of the Ummagawd Remix frame is the slot on each arm for the motor wires. They keep the motor wires from sliding around over the edge of the arm, and prevent damaged or bent propellers from cutting the motor wires.
SWEET MOTHER OF BLING
The Ummagawd Remix does not fall short when it comes to good looks. Not only does it have titanium screws and purple anodised hardware, but it also has custom designed aluminum parts and a high quality battery pad. The carbon fiber used is top notch quality, and the chamfered edges that make the Remix feel great to the touch.

BUILD NOTES - WATCH THIS VIDEO!
Excellent frame. love it.
This is an excellent frame. Easy to build and looks awesome. I love the anodized aluminum accents and the ease of maintenance with the bottom hatch. Very well though out frame. Did the build Tommy did on rotor riot and it flies like a dream. Even added the ummagawd LED strip. Awsome!!
Loved the purple over gold. Not only is this a well made frame but loved that there is youtube videos for the complete build. Thats what really made me pull the trigger. Small draw back is that i had to do some filling. But didnt mind to much as i was able to get the tolerance how i wanted it. I just wish they had more colors purple is my favorite but wanted to buy a second one.. maybe if they had all black washer set an rods id buy a second one im just not into gold which is why i wish they could be customize a bit more with color. Very happy though!!!
Best frame I’ve flown! I’d sell every other frame I own and keep this if I could only have one quad. Mid mount CG allows for a very smooth flight characteristic and tunes easily. Very nimble. You’ll regret not having one.
This frame has taken so much abuse and is still in one piece. It helps to have arm guards on to prolong the life of the frame.
The titanium screws are horrible I tightened the remix already built and when I Check motor direction 3 motors are wrong so I wanted to change the motor wire positioning on my esc except the screw hex hole turned into a circle and I can’t open it at all( the screw molded to my driver) and now I haven’t been flying for a month 1 week because of the screw 2 because my last frame broke and I was reasearching a good frame.
