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.
Specs: Weight: 614g (w/out electronics) Width: 585mm Motor Bolt Holes: 16/19/25mm X or + Landing gear setup
Requires: 28-XX or 35-XX brushlessoutrunner motor x 4 18~30A brushlessESC x 4 8x4~10x4.7 propeller x 4 (2 standard/2 reverse rotation) Multi-rotor control board 2200~3000mAh 11.1V lipoly 4CH Transmitter & Receiver
anyone know how will this frame perform/flight duration with 35 series motors and 12x4.5 props ?will be using 3 cell battery/ spent little too much money on other motors with unsatisfactory result, unless someone else has other suggestions......thanks
hi, i used 35 series motors with 12x4.5 APC prop,please not use 3S normal battery, it will create RPM problem for your motor and battery will fast flat, please using multistar High capacity 4S 5200 mAh Multi Rotor lipo pack. i tested and it fly more that 18 minute will all setup together with camera (GoPro) and gimbal.
thanks for your answer, I was trying to use 3s pack because I already have them, but looks like I will be getting 4s pack soon, by the way what is the weight of your quad?.....once mine is built including gopro and gimbal it will be close to 2500g, trying to shave weight where ever possible. thanks
My drone weight around -1500g, i use lot of rubber To reduce weight and less connection and wire. Also used blasa wood for extra platform for naza and receiver. Try on flight just use attitude mode only, so it can safe battery usage. GPS mode will used a lot of battery, fly with slow movement and not push like racing car or racing plane. Charge your battery on balance mode. Used good battery charger. Also if possible use battery doctor to make sure your battery is well balance each cell. Make sure your propeller already did a balancing. I use lite gimbal for my GoPro. Try and you will get that
Hello Can Some one PLEASE help me and choose all the best parts to build this drone with this frame. i will be honest i am a total nub in this hobby so i would really appricate if i got the help from someone that knows everything there is to know about drones :)
for the best, use Afro ESC 30 Amp, NTM Prop drive 35-30 100kv/380w, hobby king quadcopter power ditribution board, DJI naza-M lite, multistar high capacity 4S 5200mAh Multi-Rotor Lipo pack, 12x4.5 APC prop CCW/CW, or for more stable use wooden prop. i flying this HAL until now with this setup, very stable using NAZA-M Lite, longer fly time more that 18 minute depend on how you fly, ATTI or GPS Mode on fly, let try
X8's are slightly less efficient because of the coaxial rotors ( 10-15% is a number I see frequently), but this is somewhat offset by the weight saved by having less boom weight. Other differences - X8 is generally better in wind and may handle a motor failure a bit better ( without rotation of the entire craft), depending on the flight controller. It''s my favorite configuration by far, with a more open view for cameras as well.
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.
