Hornet 230 - 4in FPV Hexcopter
This particular model is cut to order - please contact us for ordering
The Mini FPV Hexacopter is a 230mm size racing hex frame designed for full fpv gear and flight cam. This lightweight yet incredibly durable frame is designed for 18xx motors and 13xx motors spinning 4 inch props.
The FPV camera is completely enclosed for protection and a secure mount, and allows for three different mount angles, 0, 20, 35 degrees.
All the sensitive electronics are mounted to a "clean" section on the frame, riding on 6 bobbins for vibration isolation. This includes the Flight Controller, the FPV cam, the flight cam, the receiver, and vtx. the esc's are mounted to the "dirty" section on the arms. No jello in the video, and vibration free flight controller performance
The frame fits a Mobius action cam on its top clean plate, a GoPro can also be strapped down on this plate. Tilt blocks for action cams to come.
The motor layout is spider-like, allowing incredible speeds flying forward, yet hovers on a dime with the help of a provided custom mix. This also allows for full 120 degree FOV from the FPV and flight cameras, without prop interference.
The frame is held together using aluminum hardware, M3 all around, Motor mounts are M2 for those motor sizes.
