I must say a big "thank you" to all who continue to show interest in the Hildagard frame, those who have purchased a frame, those who are possibly considering a purchase, or even those who just have had questions or comments. I'm also happy to see all the new people who are ordering and receiving them daily worldwide. I'm proud to have given it a variation of my last name when it was being conceived. I named it after my youngest daughter who faces a lot of battles growing up with special needs daily and is a strong fighter! I just thought I'd share a little personal information on how it became what it is today. When I reached out to Stefan van der Ende to help me bring my vision to a reality I never imagined it to be more than a personal goal of mine to have a Long range/ Acro platform of my own. Now that it has went worldwide in interest and sales I hope all who own one or may own one in the future are as happy when flying it as I am. This truly is an amazing and one of a kind 10" frame.

Here's the definition and how I blended it with her last name: The female name Hildegard derived from the Old High German words hild (=war or battle) and gard (=protection) and means "battle guard".

Hidalgo = Hildagard

This has been a special project in my thoughts for quite some time and after some great design help and advice from my friend Stefan and a great build up from my friend Paul this final setup will get buttoned up this week and a session print made for a possible maiden in the next few days... Thank you Stefan for helping me get a vision to an actual frame. Here's the Hildagard 395. It's setup for either top or bottom battery mount. Pictured with T-Motor MN 3100-17 700kv motors, 10" Lumenier CF 10x4.5 props, HobbyWing Xrotor 40a stack, tbs micro v2 rx, tbs unify pro, and Runcam mini Fpv cam. Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to really fly it and try some different sets of props types and brands and see what happens.


May 8 2018: Added a few more pics of the original build and some from a second different build using BrotherHobby Tornado T5 motors...

After having this a little over a week now I thought I'd post a few pics. So far this has surpassed most of my expectations I had for it (which were not very high) and it has found a place in my camera bag with my photo gear. Out of the box it flew much farther than I figured it would (1 1/2 miles out with the first charge on the first pack and I had more battery and signal left but didn't want to push it) , the gimbal is rock solid at almost 40mph, the photos are as good as to be expected for the sensor and edit nicely, and the video is really really nice. In the next weeks it will be going with me to the Sierra Nevada's and to Arizona so I'm looking forward to seeing how it will perform. One of the photos included shows the Air in between the Spark and Mavic Pro for comparison.
