The H550 V2 is a well thought out 550mm hexcopter frame built from quality materials. The main frame is glass fiber while the arms are constructed from ultra durable polyamide nylon.
This version of the H550 features integrated PCB connections for direct soldering of your ESCs. This eliminates the need for a power distribution board or messy multi-connectors keeping your electronics layout very tidy.
Assembly is a breeze with pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts, so no lock-nuts are required. It utilizes one size of bolt for the entire build, making the hardware very easy to keep in order and only requiring one size of hex wrench to assemble.
The added lift capacity of a hex configuration makes this frame ideal for carrying larger payloads such as camera systems and other electronic components. This makes for an exceptional camera rig or simply a very agile and powerful multi-rotor frame for aerobatics!
The H550 also features colored arms (3 white and 3 red) which are great for orientation. It helps to keep you flying the right direction without the need for different colored props.
We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC & motors. It has never been easier or more affordable to get a quad in the air!
Features: Built from quality glass fiber and polyamide nylon. Integrated PCB connections for direct soldering of your ESCs Pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts. Colored arms for orientation to keep you flying in the right direction. Large mounting tabs on main frame bottom plate for easy camera mounting. Ideal for carrying larger payloads such as camera systems and other electronic components. Easy assembly.

have just received one of these frames, I got 2 red arms, and 4 white ones, I kind of dont like that . its not how it shows in the pic,no tool / strap and so on .
it did have the zip ties.
1 gold plate and one silver for the trim
I should also mention that like someone else has said the frame plates appear to be the wrong way round too.
You have to put the bottom plate on the bottom because there are only 2 screws on that plate, however the cutout holes are far more shaped like you would expect a top plate to look and vice versa. This should be sorted out for the V3! not so happy now.
I have just received one of these frames. Overall I am VERY pleased with it, especially for the cost, however I would like to point out a couple of differences in what I received vs what is shown here:
First, I have two red arms and four white ones (not 3 of each as pictured)
Secondly, The tool and strap is not included.
neither of these things are that important to me at all but may be to you.
Other points to note with this frame are that there are no instructions at all. Whilst I know it's pretty straight forward, I expected some guide as to which way up the layers go.
I purchased the recommended 1000kv motors which are very nice, but don't forget to order the prop kit to go with each one. Also you will need some M3 8mm cap head screws to mount the motor to the frame as the ones provided are far too short.
Stop thinking about buying one and do it, they are great! Happy Flying.
as described in product details the following items are Required to complete the build:
6 x 28mm 1000~1200kv (or similar size/kv)
6 x 15~25 Amp ESC
6 x 8x4~10x4.5 Prop (3CW & 3CCW)
1 x HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board
1 x 2200~3000mAh 3s 11.1v Lipoly Battery
Well..seems that I can not put complete link here (not my fault).
I will put You the code off the product that i remember o the moment :
Motors : NTM2826-1200
I use other the HK, because at that time they come faster, but You can buy anny of those - HKz30A /TR_P30A or even 25 Amps version of those ESC
Props adapter : NTM28-ACC
Props : 017000064 (You can use those or search any 10.47 slow fly props.
Lipo : Here You have much to chose. I will put you only some example.
I use only 3S Turnigy Lipos. I strongly reccomand You to get bigger one from the start.
I buy those past week :
3S 5000mAh 25C - T5000.3S.25 but You can find cheapper Zyppy.
Flight controller,I use Naza, but I also used before the HJ kk controller.
If You do not have one, Yo can get this for the start(if You want simple with no PID stuff).
The connectors You will chose what You like.
Hope this help. I will come back if I remeber other.
I use same frame with this components, and fly like a charm :
-motors - www.link adaptors- www.link 10.47 or those - www.link LIPo on choice (I use 2200mAh 3S in paralel, or 5000mAh Turningy).
You will lift GoPro easy and even more, You can lift Reflect camera like Canon EOS5
The ESC I use 30 Amp.
Hello from France, quickly received the h 550 v2 but it isn't the Hexcopter Frame that pictured, it's Whirlwind 550 missing engine screw and also the screws from the kit are broken more other accessories. question: what are the diameter, the length of the motor screws (ntm 28-26 1000kv/315w) as well as those of the kit. Thanks for your replies. Jean
NTM 35 Series bold holes 18,5 mm and 25mm.
H550 V2 bold holes 16 & 19mm. Maybe you can fit the holes but NTM 35 Series is heavy for this Frame.
My offer is*
use with lower NTM 28-26A 1200 KV(short version) - 9" Propeller OR
NTM 28-26A 28-26 1000KV with 10" Propeller
with 20-30 AMP Multistar ESC.
The NTM 28-26A 1000Kv uses M3 8mm 0.5 pitch thread 6mm cap head screws.
Ie 3mm shaft size. 8mm long. 0.5 pitch screw thread. 6mm width of cap head. as you need to use 4 per motor = 16 in total (be warned motors mount at a 90 angle so wired stick out sideways)
It will have a lot of power to spair, and plenty of speed to boot.
Just use the right gauge wire for power distrabution system.
You can solder bullet conectors direct to the board to make it easyer if you have to change a speed control at any time.
idea as to what I am talking about : 9171000033
They should fit as most motors have one of the 2 boolt patterns in that size range.
This is what I was planing to order for a tri copter as I might want to use a 4s at a later date.
NTM2826-1000 and NTM28-ACC for a total of $18 per motor setup.
where your option is under $15 and would not be able to expand to a 4s system at a later date if you wanted to.
Just my thaught for the future...
Would be nice if HK listed bolt spacings for the motors as well.
you might have some clearance issues ( prop touching prop ) unless you make the arms longer for more clearance.
Spacer block at the body moving all arms out at least 25mm or more ( extention plates on top and bottom with shim plates used inbetween arm and extention plate to keep proper spacing ) unless you want to make new upper and lower plates with the new spacing.
does any one try quad or hexs with gasoline engine, i want more big and more time durasion in air,
i have dji nasa with 2X5000mah 4S, total w 2,45kg inct my cam and 1,3g trans video only 18mt in air.
i want more time to more explorer.
doing it in a gas/nitro version would be a linkage tuning nightmare. more weight ( servos and linkage not to mention the exhaust.
Now for the starting of the motors, do you realy want to be close to constant spinning props. clutches would be a pain to setup and maintain.
Add more mah for longer flight time would be the best way to go.
thanks 4 repley, i thinks if i use 1 gas engine with 450 model heli blade, double trap gear use for spin prop backward and forward, and dji naza m to control servo pitch blade.
how about that guys. thanks
What set up you going to use? I have an extra KK2 board I was going to use . I have the HK beatle and Micro with the KK2 board as I am new to quads. Fix wing is what I like but quads are great for indoor and winter landing area doesn't have to be to big.
Well thought out? The boards would be better reversed, so the one with the slots is on the bottom to hold the batt and the round part on the top for the controller. The legs don't give enough clearance to sling a battery on the bottom. Did anyone build and fly one of these before it appeared in the store? Frame is strong, well made and the built-in pcb is nice.

I'm building mine with the latger suggested motors (NTM Prop Drive 28-26 1000KV / 315W).
If it can haul some weight I think it would be fun for a Candy Drop Copter.
Any thoughts as to how much weight you think it can lift?
i set it up completely for fpv with the aerodrive 19A motor, 25 amps plush, 9x4,5 sf props and 2x 4000mah 20C/30C 3s. it wasnt easy to put together becouse the mounting plates and arms where not machined well so you have to put tension on it when putting it together. yet it is an awesome frame with easy pcb connections!
