The Apex DC is a variation on the typical 'dead cat' frame which has been modified to keep the front and rear motors aligned, allowing Impulse to maintain the much loved compressed-x geometry in the motor layout. This ensures the frame remains balanced and flight characteristics are not compromised, unlike the classic 'dead cat' design which moves the rear motors closer to the body and severely impacts handling.

By modifying only the upper and lower main plates Impulse retained full compatiblity with regular Apex arms, using standard 5" arms at the front and standard 6" arms at the back. There are no props in shot of DJI HD flight cameras and for slower cinematic flying it's now possible to run GoPro angles lower than ever before.

A major drawback of the Caddx Vista system is that the body of the unit is grounded, this can cause the conductive carbon fiber plates and frame hardware to be grounded too. In an ideal world this is not necessarily a problem, however in the real world it's an accident waiting to happen. Alongside the required M2 mounting hardware for the Vista, Impulse also include a die-cut mylar insulator and custom machined 'cone rivets' from non-conductive POM. When installed the Caddx Vista and also the M2 hardware is electrically isolated from the frame. This solution adds only 0.5g of extra weight compared to other designs using bulky and heavy 3D prints.

Like the Caddx Vista itself, certain DJI HD cameras can also ground the frame, with similar unfortunate consequences. Included with the ApexDC are newly redesigned HD camera plates and 3D printed insulation inserts. This keeps the camera firmly locked in place and reduces vibrations, whilst ensuring it is electrically isolated from the frame.
