The Skyward MorpheusX 195 is a true X frame for 5" props designed to carry the GoPro Session or Hero 3/4/5 HD cameras. The Morpheus is a versatile, light weight but strong true X frame with a compact center of gravity, fully adjustable camera pod, and quick change arms. If you are looking for a single frame that excels across the entire flight envelope from beginner to freestyle to expert racer, the MorpheusX can do it all.

The MorpheusX is a modular design with quick change arms. A broken arm at the field or track should be an easy fix that doesn't require soldering or tearing down the entire quad. The arms and PDB/FC don't share any common screws so an arm change leaves the PDB/FC stack in tact. Just two screws that are easily accessible secure each arm to the center frame plates.
The center of the frame is open allowing receivers (FrSky XSR, Spektrum Satellite, LemonRX Satellite) to be mounted completely inside the frame reducing the height of the electronics stack and concealing most of the wiring. Alternately, the PDB/OSD can be mounted inside the frame with the same effect of reducing the height of the electronics stack. This allows for extremely compact builds keeping the center of gravity as low as possible.
The MorpheusX camera pod is a new concept designed to mount the popular HS1177 style FPV cameras and GoPro Session or Hero 3/4/5 at angles adjustable from 25° degrees to 50°. The pod is also designed to mount the video transmitter and VTX antenna keeping all wiring internal to the pod and clear of the props. The wide range of FPV camera angles supports every flying style from beginner to expert racer. The camera pod can be installed or removed in minutes allowing the X to be flown LOS without the extra weight of the cameras and VTX if desired. Build up a spare camera pod and swap out in minutes if you have camera or VTX issues at the track.
