With a name like that, it'd better be cool - right? Well here you go, we made you two new frames and we think they're pretty cool!

The larger one is 204mm and can comfortably spin 5" props! The smaller version is 122mm and spins 3" props - AND is considerably lighter than two sticks of butter AUW

We made the top plate on the 204 fit perfectly with our Cricket line of VTx's.

Ive been flying this thing for a few weeks now and I love how it handles. Here is my setup
RMRC blue 2204 2300kv motors
MRM zeus escs
RMRC dodo with beta flight ( attached is my CLI dump )
RMRC 12v/5v bec pdb
RMRC cricket 200mw
Spektrum dx9 with Sat
5x4.5x3 HQ
Fatshark 700 tvl v2


I went with a little different style with this one. I used shorter standoffs for the quad to give it a lower profile . But then again I stuck a big ole gopro on top

I love my Hellbenders! Both are a blast to fly, and handle amazing!

Im using 25 mm standoffs on the 204 hellbender, and was able to get everything inside the frame with lots of extra room.

I was able to get everything inside the frame on the micro as well, its a tight fit and I decased some stuff but it fits and is just the right ammount of snug. Im actually going to be switching over to the 4 in 1 esc that RMRC is selling now and getting rid of the PDB. Will be about the same ammount of room but with out escs on the arms and look much cleaner.

the 122 is currently using rmrc 15a esc, with 1306 3300kv and hq 3x3 props (soon to be replaced with tri blades to effortlessly carry arround the gopro. (hope to have an epic video of that soon) Running 4s 1300 mah RMRC 60c currently, but works great with 850 mah 4s as well when running a gopro.

Here is some LOS footage of my hellbender 204 with the 2206 2300 kv and 5x4x3 BNs

Im pretty sure you can get it under 250g with a gopro, if not the runcam 2 is only 35g with out the battery.

Nice Ozydego. Any flight vids?

Think it could carry a stripped hd cam? Im hoping for the fastest <250g auw quad I can get that will record at least 1080p.
