The battery tray accepts all standard configurations all the way up to 12s power systems!

Beefy 27mm Tail Boom & Upper Mounted Tail Servo

One of the most notable qualities of the Nimbus 550, and proven on the Specter 700 V2, is the use of a large diameter tail boom (27mm for the Nimbus 550) without the need for boom supports. Not only does a large tail diameter tail boom increase tail performance, but also has a super sleek look. The tail servo and tail control rod are mounted in the upper frame raising the vertical CG to improve flight characteristics.

With an average flying weight of ~2.9Kg (outfitted with a 5200mAh 6s LiPo) the Nimbus 550 will meet all demands with agile, responsive, and a confidence building feel, flight after flight.
