Hobbyking X550 Glass Fiber Quadcopter Frame 550mm
Hobbyking X550 Glass Fiber Quadcopter Frame 550mm

The Hobbyking X550 is a high quality folding-arm quadcopter frame that offers great looks and performance at a price that can't be beat! Built from light weight yet rigid glass fiber and aluminum, the X550 offers a great combination of weight savings and strength.

This quad features folding arms which make it easy to transport and store. The arms are also two different colors for orientation, silver and red, so it's easy to keep your quad flying in the right direction.

This quad frame also supports an optional tilt camera mount which allows for carrying a wide variety of cameras. (Please see related items below for optional camera mount)

We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC, motors and more, so it has never been easier or more affordable to get a quad in the air!

All necessary hardware is included, just add your own electronics.

Can this mount to crab landing skids? If not, what other landing skids can it mount to?

How and where do you install the control board? My CC3D seems a bit too small to fit it in the protruding square at the top

If you choose to use this versatile kit with NTM 28xx motors, I suggest you open out the centre motor mount hole to 11/32in (8.7mm) or it can foul the e-clip on the motor shaft. The e-clip is 8.0mm. I use the kits as a quad, hexacopter and now octocopter all with the KK2 and NTM 28xx motors.

This frames works pretty well. I have a Turnigy Aerodrive 1050kv and 9x4.7 props and it flies great and lasts a little over 10 minutes. A lot of the hardware is hex key so make sure you have a good set of small ones. The only thing I didn't like is how you need to glue the spacers to the board and then mount a standard sized controller. Make sure you use some really good glue to hold them down and it's a little difficult to get everything crammed in there well. I would still definitely recommend this for a beginner or a pro.

Really nice frame! Carbon Fiber sheets are much thicker than I originally thought. Very light.
