The Hobbyking SK450 is a brilliantly designed 450mm quad frame built from top quality materials. The main frame is high quality glass fiber while the arms are constructed from ultra durable polyamide nylon.
This quad not only looks great, its very well thought out as well. 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 SK450 also has an orientation feature which is quite clever. It includes a yellow foam ball which you install on a carbon rod that mounts between the frame arms. This not only acts as a bumper to prevent running into obstacles, it also makes for a great orientation aid to keep track of the front of the quad while flying.
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 top quality glass fiber and polyamide nylon. Pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts. Yellow orientation ball to keep you flying in the right direction. Easy assembly.
Required: 4 x 28mm 1000~1200kv (or similar size/kv) 4 x 15~25 Amp ESC 4 x 8x4~10x4.5 Prop (2CW & 2CCW) 1 x HobbyKing Multi-Rotor Control Board 1 x 1500~2200mAh 3s 11.1v Lipoly battery Your own radio and 4 channel receiver

I would update to 30a AFRO ESCs and use 9x45 or 9x47 Props. Also if you get a kk2.1.5 you can configure easily in the field. If this is your first build I would recommend a kk for this reason. You can see the instant results of flight controller changes without needing a laptop.
The kit I received worked pretty good, but the polyamide nylon was not very stiff, and the quad would bounce abit in acro 3d and fast forward flight. The frame flex was not very good at first but I have since crashed the quadcopter, and REPLACED the arms with the replacement arms they sell here, and they are MUCH stiffer. They are so much stiffer that the old arms make a floppy "smack" sound when bashed against concrete, while the new arms sound like a "TINK" like metal or aluminum!
They need to make carbon frame plates for this. I would very much enjoy flying this frame acro with prop reversing on a Naze32. I simply doubled up on bottom frames and fly it like that.
Arrived very quickly with EMS. Kit goes together well, uses just an exploded view style manual. Have not flown it yet, but it is very easy to build and feels of good quality. 9 or 10 inch props will fit fine, and if you have an engine with a shaft out of the bottom as well you will need to drill a hole in the landing gear struts for it to fit.
Overall very happy, too bad an engine died so I can't test.
Will post a flight report when a new engine arrives.
Any questions let me know. Bart

Purchased this on Saturday and it was in my hands Friday next week.
Quality is superb.. The attention to detail is nice. The screw holes, are metal 'tubes'/threads , a huge plus when you think about it.
Just a note, they should just say (as on the manual), this accepts 2212 to 2216 motors.
I haven't found a flaw, but I will update as my build progresses.

Excellent frame bought to replace my talon v2 which i got sick of realigning its arms... Easy build, lots of space, arms are perfect width for esc. Doesnt come with nylon stand offs for your fc board as the talon v2 does so make sure you have some of them. Excellent ability to rotate motor mount so your motor wires come out at right spot. All bolts take a 2mm hex driver. Flys great with my kk2.1 board, orientation ball can be great in some situations but not in others depending on distance as if you focus on just it, it takes your eyes away from the overall frame dynamics, but ill be keeping it on for now. Photos of my build can be found in the discussion and files tab and on the forums "yet another quad build". Very solid arms and bolt connections. Personally this is the best multi frame available at HK at the moment. Plenty of mount holes unused in the base plate that could be used to mount a gimbal & skids. UPS to Sydney, Australia 3 days as advertised then a few more via Australia Post to my place as i live in the sticks.
Buen frame para iniciarse en los multicopteros, esta muy bien acabado, los brazos estan perfectos a 90Âº y no cojea de ninguna pata, el mio ha pesado en vacio 315 gr. La idea de la bola amarilla esta muy bien para los primeros vuelos y para orientar, de todas maneras se puede desmontar sin necesidad de tornillos o cualquier otra complicacion
