The Turnigy H.A.L. (Heavy Aerial Lift) Quadcopter Frame is crafted from high quality anodized aluminium offering both great looks and performance. The H.A.L. has been designed in-house by our engineering team and manufactured ourselves to keep costs low. We set out to create an aerial video platform that would provide high performance at a price that won't break the bank, and we have achieved that goal!
The extended carbon fiber lading skids and wide variety of motor mounting options make this frame ideal for carrying payloads such as camera systems and other electronic components. This makes an exceptional camera rig for capturing awesome aerial video!*
The H.A.L. also features a stylish removable dome to protect the electronics and provide a tidy look on the main frame. We have even designed an optional aluminium landing skid set for those who do not plan to use this frame for aerial video (see related items below).
H.A.L's motor mounting plates allow for top or bottom mounting of 28 and 35 size brushlessoutrunner motors. We also offer a full line of quality multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC, motors and more, so there is no need to compromise on your electronics setup either!
*Optional 3-axis camera gimbal/mount available, please see related items below.

No idea, I think its ridiculous. But the booms do just look like glorified metal tubes, with all the important stuff stuck to the end. If you want, it shouldn't be too hard to cut some new booms, and re-clamp the important stuff.
I used a Qbrain integrated 4x ESC and used 2 of the H.A.L. battery mount plates (see in the accessories above) to mount this and the battery to the bottom. Mounting 1 plate and then using double-sided sticky tape stuck it to the plate and a single wire tie around it to secure it. Then using brass standoffs, I mounted the plate for the battery under it and added a velcro strap to hold the battery on. You can then add motor wire extensions (also here on HK) to give the ESC motor wires enough length to reach the motor through the tubes. I didn't, I just wire tied the motor wires to the bottom of the arms.
1 thumbs up!
Ordered two of these frames so I have spare parts in case I crash which I've been known to do. Received the frames today and assembled both in the X configuration. Very impressed with the quality and strength of these frames especially given the price. I particulary like the height available under the landing gear.
Everything fit perfectly and was exactly as I expected it to be based on HK's pictures and description. Currently I have installed HK Quadcopter power distribution board and V3.0 Multirotor control board.
There is plenty of room inside the dome for other electronics - I will be flying this with a Hoverfly Pro controller board which I already own and later with Ardupilot and FPV electronics. Will have to make my own mounting plates but that is trivial task. Will also make a plate below the landing gear to mount a battery and a GoPro.

I recieved my kit a couple of days ago and built it up.
I am very impressed with the quality! Everything fits!
I hope that a 'plus' configuration is good, as I don't think this frame can be converted easily to 'X'.
All very good! I'm impressed!
i like this kit very well..ive crashed mine many times and once really hard.and have repaired it everytime..im using 4000 mah nano tech. 30 35 motors.fy90q pro flight controller .55 amp dlux esc and 10 inch props.its very stable and handles great.and a old school futaba fm radio.it hovers at 1/2 stick.and is very powerful .plus it looks badass flying

I've tested it passing to my 2 year old kid: it weight 14 kg and he decided to push it like a car. Surprisingly, the frame survived, nothing had cracked or bended.
And yes, it's beautiful.
4 crowns overall - for its weight. But for 30$ - it's the best buy.
