Hoverthings HT-FPV and X450 Quad Frames

I'm offering up my Hoverthings HT-FPV and Hoverthings X450 quad frames. They have both served me well and neither has any broken parts I'm needing to reduce my inventory of toys to upgrade to a larger FPV frame with gimbal capability. Here's what you get:

1ea-HT-FPV frame wtih landing skids...much better than legs that stick into the ground and flip.
5ea- RCTimer BL2830/13 850kV motors with bell mounted prop adapters (four on the frame and a spare)
4ea- RCTimer 18A ESCs flashed with SimonK firmware
1ea- Homemade slide-in case for a GoPro V1 or V2
I flew this on 4S with 8" props. I will include a full, new set of 8" props if you plan on using 4S or 10" props for 3S. The ESC BECs are disabled (removed the red pin). You will need a separate 5v UBEC for 4S operation or can reinstall the red wires in the connectors for 3S operation.

Along with the FPV frame I have a Hoverthings X450 frame. This is just the frame only...no motors, electronics, landing gear. I have a spare center plate with tab for mounting a GoPro and some extra motor mount plates should you ever break one.

These will be slightly disassembled (arms removed) for a smaller shipping package.

Just pick your preferred combination. Prices include shipping in the continental US.
$175: HT-FPV frame, Motors, ESCs, and Props
$525: HT-FPV set and DJI Naza controller w/GPS

$60: X450 frame only
$140: X450 frame and Quadrino Basic flight controller w/Frankenquad case

$225: HT-FPV set and X450 frame
$275: HT-FPV set, X450 frame, Quadrino w/case
$550: HT-FPV set, X450 frame, DJI Naza controller w/GPS
$600: HT-FPV set, X450 frame, Quadrino w/case, DJI Naza w/GPS

Here's some videos taken with the FPV frame (the 'water' portion of the videos were with the X450 frame).

Sorry, I don't have any 1080 video. I tried it in the past. Didn't like it. It consumes memory much faster and didn't seem as smooth. I found I prefer the 720 @ 60fps mode. I could try a 1080 recording for you, but it won't be until this weekend.

No problem take your time. I'm particularly interested in the 1080 and see the jello (if there is).

Also a question about your packages - on the 525, is says "full ht-fpv set" where as the others like at 600, it says "ht-fpv set"

I wanted to ask what's the diff between the 2 because it looks like for additional 75 the add-on would be the quadrino and the 450 frame.

Anyhow, I would like to request for the 1080 video if possible. My brother is in the summerlin area btw so no need for shipping in case we end up dealing. Thanks!

Sorry for the confusing wording. The 'full HT-FPV set' is the HT-FPV frame, Motors, ESCs, and Props plus the DJI Naza and GPS for $525. For $600 you're getting that plus the Quadrino and and X450 frame.

Weather/winds permitting I'll get some 1080 video recorded and posted for you.

ok, ill wait for your 1080 video. a few minutes of some low and slow, some hovers, and some high speed flight would be a good video review.

Here's a quicky 1080 demo I did in the back yard with HT--FPV frame and equipment as mentioned above. There's a couple throttle settings where some jello shows up. I'll do some more 'open area' flights this weekend, weather/winds permitting, for a better idea.

Hmmm...the video and sound seem a little out of sync...oh well...it's the picture you were more interested in anyway.

An new (short) 1080 recorded clip. This time I used GWS 9x5x3 3-bladed props. I think the 3 blades provide smoother video as they aren't as 'reactive'.

Thanks for the video. Is it me or does it look like it's choppy at 0:08 - 0:13? Is it that the gopro acting up?

No, I think that's my video editor doing that when rendering the video...I noticed it between scene transitions too. I prefer the 720 mode @ 60fps...the end files are smaller, the 60fps provides smooth video, and it's still HD.
