Hive 180 - 4in FPV Frame
4in rig lovers felt left out, so the beloved Hive 210 now has a new little brother. Not simply scaled down, but shrunk in specific areas to optimally fit 4in props at 180mm, while retaining all the features of its larger, 210mm version.
180 FPV frame designed to tilt an hs1177 up to 55 degrees. Accommodates wide lens (1.8mm, 2.1mm)
4in prop clearance
22xx motor mounting slots
1piece 4mm Carbon Fiber frame
2mm Carbon Fiber top plates
2 isolated top plates design to allow low profile battery mounting on the rear top plate for superior flight performance. How low can you build it? Convenient for working on one section of the quad while leaving the other section intact. Need to solder something quick on your fc? Leave your camera / vtx cage alone, no tilt repositioning, no extra screws, etc.
Front top plate 30mm high to fit HS1177 camera directly, or house other small fpv cameras with standard techniques. HS1177 fits and tilts up to 55 degrees without requiring any hardware, just press fit tight. Forget those screws.
Front plate has direct vTx mounting option for use with TS5823 vTx's. vTx can also be mounted under back top plate with antenna routed forward into protective slot, into SMA hole via pigtail, or out the back via ziptie holes for protection.
!!!!Please note orientation of front side plates when installing as front standoffs force one direction of side plates to ensure proper hs1177 mounting locations.
!!!!Also, please note that in order to keep the hive 180 as close to perfect x as possible, the front gap for the camera is 26mm wide (HS1177 case width). However, the hs1177 has two small 1mm tabs on each side next the mounting nubs. These 1mm plastic tabs must be filed flush to the 26mm case in order to properly fit inside the 26mm gap of the Hive 210 front cage. 20 seconds to do, soft plastic. Use file or sharp X-acto knife for this.
