It’s finally here! Brand new Kelpie v2 PRO. Kelpie v1 was very successful project with its low profile design, spacious interiors, variable arm layout between X and XS and its wide compatibility with any hardware.
But it doesn’t mean that development ended there and a year later we are proud to present Kelpie v2 available in two variants: PRO and LITE.
Both received plenty of upgrades and fixes in key areas as well as new redesigned GoPro mount!

What’s the difference between PRO and LITE then? Let me explain…

LITE is a low cost proposition where we replaces premium titanium hardware with cheaper hex key steel and we’re no longer adding spare screws and GoPro printed mount. It also has good old 4mm arms that despite their inferior stiffness compared to 5mm might still appeal to people who prefer separate ESC on arms (5mm version is only compatible with 4in1’s). But lower price does not mean we saved on quality. Both variants share the same carbon and cut quality!

PRO on the other hand is aimed at professionals (duh!) who are on good terms with 4in1 ESC and appreciate additional stiffness that 5mm arms bring to the table. In this variant you’ll also find well known from Kelpie v1 titanium Torx T10 screws, stronger step standoffs and 3d printed flexible GoPro mount, angle 30 deg (other angles available as downloadable STL files).

Let’s sum up in a table:
