If you try to buy 6 of the T1811-2900kv motors recommended, the web site will only sell you 5. I asked why and was told I would need to split my order. That means two separate shipping charges, etc. ***mer!
I don't know which genius designed this thing, but it's epic fail. Although it follows the modern Chinese guideline "make **** shine and it will sell".
1. Frame has some useless hole at the most narrow place of beam. Yeah that's where it will brake.
2. Recommended motors have very ****py quality. Luckily I've ordered on extra, because prop saver adapter on one of the motors had on screw hole so big that it can't hold the screw.
3. "Motors are very well balanced", that's now what you hear of this motors.
4. Recommended airscrews are worse that poor quality. It takes 30-60 minutes to balance all of them and be sure, you would not get any of thees in balance. You have to work it out.
5. Recommended ESCs, after 10-20 seconds of steady flight are pretty warm. I think it is true, that ESC will overload if sudden throttle is given. If you see carefully, on HK videos there are 10A ESC's installed.
It is interesting model, but it has SO MANY constructive fails, that it needs to be redesigned.
You can actually buy it and fly it, but till the first crash.
I'm with Electric on this one... I have also spent thousands here and never once got a freebie! Who wants to sit around adding items to check out all day everyday just to wait for a freebie?! HK should reward there platinum and big spenders...
another freebee that always shows up after I place an order. I have spent thousands with this company and never got one thing free. The one time I tried it screwed up and tried to charge me for it at checkout
that's the funniest thing i ever read.. take this advice : whenever you want to buy something put it in your wishlist and keep checking for freebees..it will definitely work ..
you can check for freebies by ofently placing items in you cart..a freebie box will pop pn your screen..than directly place your oder over the amount required and add the free item.
good luck shopping
I like to convert glow/gas planes to electric, so I am starting to get into larger planes. Sometimes the plane is forsale from local clubs. Most of the hobby shops deal with Horizon hobby to order their planes and supplies in. It deals with lots of different companies that make planes. There are also companies in Canada that have free shipping inside Canada. It isn't a knock against HK but the shipping cost do make it cheaper to buy from Horizon when you are on the other side of the planet. To order from the USA the price is even higher than from China, again shipping cost. In winter we fly indoors 70% of the time since the winters can be real cold. Plus at our club we also make my own planes to bash around. I made a plane last night I am testing today that took me about 4 hours to build but is only 450 mm across (18 inches)and made from foam. Later this week I am making a 3D plane again made of foam that will be 900mm (36 inche)wing, Foam it just faster to build with and like I said these are winter beaters to have fun with. Small planes in foam, larger in balsa.
Naza is way too heavy for this little bird in a first place. Due to PCB frame it will be basically good idea not to concentrate too much weight in the middle of the frame.
If you still want to fly Naza, try balancing all props and motors in the first place. If this doesn't help try lowering gains till it stops oscilating.
I agree! the bigger the better. Although every time i hit the BUY BUTTON something new i want pops up on the NEW ITEMS page, i can't win. guess the girlfriends engagement ring can wait a bit longer, she won't notice another quad in the collection will she?
I agree with ChrisHolden!!!! Ive seen a great frame come out (which my addiction tells me that I must buy).. then an even greater frame come out!!!! Arghhh... I have one of the quad micro frames and it is very very very cool... However, I have the new LCD controller on the way.. so now.. do I get the hex frame?!?!?!?! LOL
Good work HK... I think I need to break more stuff so I can keep buying more!!!
i got so many planes and copters still in the box!trying to sneak them out bit by bit and tell the wife :they have always been there love: i just got a 680 hk quad frame would 4x 310watt motors be enough for thrust? no cam only lots of lighting lol
Quite nice frame. I was thinking of something like this myself. It would be better to have corresponding controllers for this frame. As I see on PCB it is designed for some particular controller. Why HK won't ship theese pre flushed for 400Hz refresh rates?
I'm so looking forward putting this beauty together, and I really hope it will fly as good as it looks :)
Apparently I'll be using OpenPilot CopterControl board as a brain. The rest of the setup will be as recommended in description here. Possibly I'll give some numbers for motor specs and ESC consumptions, but I promise nothing.
Fantastic fun to build and fly! Construction is like the micro quad and these certainly aren't a super tough, crash and fly model. They are for experimenters and casual flyers that aren't afraid to add a few bits of rod for strengthening here and there. I love my micro hex with new V2 board.

It's a lovely little hexacopter
I use turnigy plush 6A and tunigy 1811 2900Kv.
It fly well, but it was hard to set the gyro with the hobbyking multi rotor control board.
Very easy to assemble (less than 1 hour for me)
It's more fragile than the quad version and i think you can't do any accro with this board.
You can put a little camera on it easily.

Got it as afreebe. Now I can have few cents bonus too. What more can You ask? :D This framy thing is quite thin and motor parts is like made to broke off in a crash. The materjal is like usual Electronic board PCB. Not plastic, not glass fiber but you know.
