  • Symmetrical, true X design
  • 90g frame weight
  • Swings 5" props
  • HMB durability & warranty
  • Integrated camera mounting

We have taken what we've learned from our HMB-235 and adapted it to make a line of racing inspired frames that are smaller and lighter, while still offering HMB durability (and warranty). The HMB-X frames feature a compact design that lets you fit all of the essentials without adding unnecessary weight. They are also symmetric designs, for great balance and easy tuning.

Camera mounting is diversified, so as to not lock you into one specific setup. We include mounting bars for an HS1177 that captures the camera securely and allows for a wide degree of angles (up to 55°). There are also holes to allow for mounting a Diatone mini camera or using our Universal FPV Camera Mount.

The 35mm standoffs allow for mounting a small VTX such as an Aomway or Hawkeye vertically. Alternatively, you can use a short extension or a VTX with a short lead. We will also be offering 3D printed accessories in the future that would allow for mounting larger transmitters, such as the DRAK, or others that are too long to fit vertically.

The frame is designed to allow for running your flight pack on top or on bottom of the frame. This allows for running an HD camera on top and balancing that out with your pack on bottom. The area in-between the strap slots on the bottom has been pocketed to allow for your PDB to sit immediately above it.

Being such small frames, with not much prop clearance, there is always the worry of your battery wires getting caught in your props, especially when running your flight pack up top. We have come up with a solution for that by including a TPU XT-60 holder that secures your male XT-60 to your velcro strap. This allows your wires to stay well clear of your props.

    Awesome Frame

    Posted by Justin R. on Jun 4th 2016

    After trying my hardest to kill my HMB235 and learning how to fly without crashing most of the time i purchased this X5. The build is simple and easy with plenty of room for all the needed FPV gear. well designed and easy to balance. High speed crashes while flying through gates and the like result in little to no damage, usually just a prop or two and it goes back in the air. For harder hits you can bend the frame back into shape and resume racing.It's not quite as indestructible as the 235, but a real workhorse nonetheless. I recommend this frame to anyone who doesn't want to swap out carbon arms or unibody carbon frames after every hard hit, but wants a solid performing race/freestyle quad.
