Update! The X5 now comes with an integrated camera mount with variable tilt and 3 point fastening. The X5 is the newest symmetrical frame from the designer of the popular Minion. This frame was designed in cooperation with Championship racer and freestyle pilot Jon Casey (aka Highwind). If you don't know Jon, he was the #1 ranked pilot in the 2015 IDRA standings. We met Jon at the Canadian Drone Nationals (where he won both racing and freestyle) and began collaborating on the ultimate design. This is the result. A pure competition frame - minimalist, low drag, very light and able to run extreme camera angles. Jon even flies his with a GoPro when looking to capture HD footage.
The Highwind X5 features a 4mm one piece main body X frame shape that accomodates any 22xx size motor. Motor to motor distance is 223mm and fits up to 5" props. At only 81g with all the included hardware, the X5 is very light and when combined with agressive 5" props, provides a very high power to weight ratio resulting in extreme performance and lightning fast direction changes. Those characteristics make this the ultimate racing and freestyle frame. It will take your flying experience to the next level and let you explore your true potential.
Comes with all hardware as seen in the photos (spacers and screws for both the frame and control board mount mounting)
Bling Pack replaces all stainless/nylon hardware with anodized aluminum. Includes 4pcs each of 35mm round spacers (main frame), 10mm round spacers (control board mount), M3x6 screws (top of control board), M3x10 screws (bottom plate) and 8pcs of M3x8 screws (top plate and underside of control board spacers)
If you want to go all out in weight saving, add some titanium motor mount screws!
