The 'Nimrod' is the latest addition to the HaloRC lineup. Largely based on the Nemesis V2, sharing the same arm and component layout, chassis structure and antenna mounts. The main difference is that the camera mount uses vertical carbon plates and a standoff, rather than the TPU mount that is found on the nemesis V2.
We have put everything we have learned over the last three years of frame design into the Nimrod. Taking aspects from both the Nemesis and Archon to create what we feel to be the best all round race frame on the market.
The camera mounting system has been designed to take all the various sizes of micro fpv camera's and lens's. From the really long Runcam Sparrow 2 Pro, to the tiny Foxeer Falkor.
By using the 3 mounting holes you can adjust the position of the FPV camera to provide the best protection while keeping the carbon plates out of view. The vertical plates are held in place by the top, middle and bottom plates to help distribute the impact forces better without breaking the carbon.
As standard, the Nimrod comes with skinny 5mm thick arms that are designed for running 4 in 1 ESC's. However, the wide 4mm thick Nemesis V2 arms can be swapped out and used for running separate ESC's on each of the arms.
Frame kits can be purchased with your choice of Nimrod (skinny) 5mm arms, or Nemesis V2 (wide) 4mm arms. Both of which are available in True X and Stretch X configurations.
We treat the arms and the way they connect as the chassis of the frame, and this is the major part that affects flight characteristics and durability.
Our tried and tested design splits the arms where they meet each other, rather than them meeting in the centre of the frame. Inspired by the monocoque chassis of a formula one car, this design distributes the impact forces throughout the whole frame to reduce stress and protect the components within.
The latest revision of this arm connection method now only requires you to remove one bolt and loosen the second to remove and replace an arm when it breaks.
The Nimrod top plate has been designed for running a top mounted battery horizontally (toilet tank style) and there are slots for fitting a lipo strap and a hole for running the lipo lead up to the battery.
We have developed a range of TPU mounts for all the various direct to vtx style antenna's such as the Lumineer Axii and VAS Minion, along with a standard SMA mount that works for both the TBS Unify connector and the standard one.
The extra slots and holes should be enough for mounting components and RX antenna's with zip ties.
