Hovership MHQ2 Frame

Designed for 5" props.

Splash

A folding mini that's perfect for racing

The newly redesigned MHQ2 from Hovership is an outstanding candidate for FPV racing, or general cruising around in first-person-view. The MHQ2 has updates over the original MHQ, giving it improved functionality, durability, and stability. This little quad is designed for 5" props, but can be outfitter with 6" props if you run the optional XL arms. Some of the updates include a lower center of gravity for the camera and battery, integrated GoPro and Mobius mount, improved landing gear thickness, and a redesigned base with greatly reduced torsion for better flight stability.

Specs:

  • Weight: 165g including motor screws
  • Wheelbase: 270mm (diagonally, motor to motor)
  • Flight controller: It is recommended to use a smaller (lighter) controller with a footprint of ~35mm. The flight control deck can accommodate boards with a max hole spacing of 45x45mm.
  • Max Prop: 5" (6" possible with XL arms)
  • Recommended battery: 3s 1300-1500mAh
  • ESCs: 12a
  • Motors: 1804-2204 size (22g or less)

I don't know, as I don't have one. But in the specs it says a max size of 5" if that helps.

I think it will work since it's length is only 5"

Why is the FPV camera on top of the frame? Wouldn't you want it where the gopro is in order to prevent damage to the vTX antenna?

It looks awesome, and a good price point. What is the durability of a 3d printed quad though?

I have one custom printed and it is very durable, only weak part is the thin parts but that's it. I had mine printed with a hex infill and it's supposedly more shock absorbing and takes hits better. It will be just as strong as a carbon fiber frame, but ou'll have a much better looking quad

Hi, complete noob question.

Can you rig these cheaper smaller units to fly using pre determined GPS points, or are they too small to carry the equipment needed?

If not, are they at least capable of hovering at a fixed point without you being at the controls?

Thanks for any info.

Cheers mate. Just googled what you said and found everything I needed to know. Surprisingly inexpensive as well.

Thanks again.
