Night Hawk 250 CF Frame

INTRODUCING THE NIGHT HAWK 250
**The best value Carbon Fiber frame on the market**


A less expensive frame of this style and quality simply can’t be found, especially since this one is made from a heat laminated Carbon Fiber hybrid. Reinforced at key points, the acrobatic Night Hawk 250 can easily withstand high speed crashes, mainly due to its 5mm thick Carbon Fiber arms! We borrowed various facets of this tough yet lightweight design from other cutting edge frames to bring you a CF frame that we believe is the best value in comparison to all others in its class. The CAD to CNC design is ultra precise, as you can see in the photos below. It is able to accommodate many different brands of motors, with extra holes made in the ends of the arms for this purpose.

But what separates the Night Hawk 250 from the rest of the pack is its low price of $39.99 …with FREE SHIPPING! Try to find a tough reinforced CF frame of this style, and you’ll easily spend upwards of $150!! So we decided to create a hybrid Carbon/Glass frame that would be light in the air…and light on your wallet. For more details, please visit: http://www.besthobbymall.com/night-h...aft-frame.html

WARNING: The Night Hawk 250 is super fast and therefore not for beginners. It possesses some serious maneuverability! It’s small enough to literally fly in a forest and use the trees for your own personal slalom course! (Think: Harry Potter flying on his Nimbus 2000 broomstick)

Aptly named, the Night Hawk 250 is LIGHT and STRONG with the agility of a small hawk weaving through obstacles to hunt down its prey.

Please refer to the photos below. Soon we will upload a flying performance video…

Hey guy, this is a sharp looking little frame! I'm thinking of building some RTF or ARF micro quads like this to sell on e-Bay. How many do you have in stock?

We CNC machine the pieces ourselves, so not to worry--we have plenty.

By the way, if you are going to do a build we also feature the properly recommended motors, ESCs, props, flight controllers, FPV equipment, etc. here (in the right hand column): http://www.besthobbymall.com/night-h...aft-frame.html

Good luck to you!

Pay attention to mini size frame for a long time. Most available 250mm frames cost $100 or even more. I really think it is ridiculous. They want to make 200% or 300% profit by selling a mini frame!!

Very glad to see more and more low cost frames such as this one rush into market. Their price is reasonable and they provide more choice for fpv flyer.

Appreciate your vote of confidence, Vodaye! You are exactly right about the greedy profit markup on similar frames--a frame shouldn't have to cost so much, I think.

It would be nice to see a comparison thread to compare the Night Hawk 250 frame to other similar models. Do you (or any other FPV flyers out there) have any suggestions for other models to compare this one to? I can only think of a couple other similar mini frames. Thanks!

That's heavy... most CF frames in the market weigh <130 grams. Your frame is weighs almost 50% more! How come?

Good point, Avt. Thanks for your comment. But most CF frames are also about 300% more expensive. There are a number of CF frames on the market, but they are all priced so high because carbon fiber is an expensive material. There's no getting around that. That's why we decided to make a CF blend. Sure, it adds some extra weight, but by only using about half the carbon fiber, we can make it affordable to more RC pilots.

There are pros and cons to everything. Maybe the Night Hawk 250 won't appeal to people who don't mind spending $150 on just the frame alone. However, I think it's good to have choices...and prior to the Night Hawk, there just wasn't an inexpensive alternative.

Thank you for the clear and honest answer.
As you probably know, the thing about CF is not only looks, it's also great durability. I hope your frame will not fall behind.
Keep up the good job.

Have you tested this with a GoPro at all? And would the GoPro 3 fit on one of the edges on either end?
