The New HobbyKing Thorax is a face full of attitude, this little mini hex is the best of both worlds using common sized batteries and FPV gear, but with all the agility and fun of a 250 class racer.

The Thorax is a 310mm FPV machine with built in sub-frame camera mounts and vibration isolated Mobius platform. Designed for 250 class power systems and 5inch props the beefy 4mm motor arms have all mounting options and can handle a range of motors from 1704~2206 class. There are a number of standardized mounting points for all your gear, including the 30.5mm FC points. The composite FR4 construction and design makes this a super strong and light weight at just over 200g.

The Hex gives you that extra lift needed for standard 2200mAH class batteries everyone has a draw full of and can lift full FPV gear with ease. The added efficiency of unloaded 5inch props and the bigger battery gives you a bit more air time fun as well.

The Thorax as the name implies, is in the middle of bigger cruisers and speed racers and is the prefect amount of different, and a whole lot of FUN.

Features:
• Vibration isolated Mobius mount
• Integrated FPV in frame camera mount
• 12,14,16mm and Tri motor mounting holes
• Beefy super strong 4mm FR4 motor arms
• All FR4 composite construction
• Uses common sized batteries
• Great looks

Specs:
Wheelbase: 310mm
weight: 210g
Motor mounting: 12,14,16mm and Tri
Lower cam mount: Standard 20~30mm cube cams
Upper cam mount: For Mobius 40x65mm

6 x 1704~2206 motors
6 x 5inch propellers
6 x 10~15A ESC

This frame is fantastic - by using 35mm standoffs, you can use a regular Runcam mini or a Caddx F1. I used the 20amp Little Bee ESC, 2300kv Motors, and a CC3D using CleanFlight. Screams on a 4s battery. My only gripe is the hole size for the motor screws, they needed to be slightly enlarged. Pics of my build are here - https://rotorbuilds.com/build/10638

I always wanted a mini hex - so here ya go!!! With motors, ESCs available in the bin it can be done in hours, and if it is on sale, it is a no brainer. At first look looks quite flimsy, but was pleasantly surprised how rigid and thick the arms were. I bought 2 ... just for spares :)

Love the kit so much, bought 2 more for builds and spares..Very sturdy and with some minor alteration during assembly, everything fits on lower deck...see photos on file.

Very nice frame for the price! I am currently using the 2206 baby beast motors with 20a Afro esc's with the cc3d on 4s getting 9 minutes of flight time.

excelente y resistente frame, despues de muchos golpes no se han roto mas que las palas, lo he probado con naza lite y con CC3D y se comporta de maravilla, el CG lo encuentran en linea con los motores del centro.

Great frame! I had been looking for a cheaper alternative to the expensive "mini" hex frames out there and for <$30 this can't be beat!

My current build has the Thorax frame with Multistar Elite x2204 motors. With a 2200mAh battery the setup weighs 650 grams and hovers around 45pcnt throttle. The frame is very well thought out and has lots of room for mounting things. The vibration isolation mount works great for my go-pro.

Two things I would change would be to add spacers between the two bottom plates, this would allow ESCs and power distribution to be done between the two bottom plates, helping keep the build clean. It would also be nice if hobbyking had replacement arms or some sort of landing gear to help soften the landings.

I really like this frame kit!! I bought it on a whim, I had purchased 4 of the 3100KV 1306 motors for another project and they turned out to be physically too small. So I had 4 motors and esc's and figured I'd get two more of each along with this kit. The kit comes well packaged, assembly is simple and obvious and it looks damn good! It's also WAY cheaper than the mini hex from TBS...
There's room for all your FPV gear.
Current configuration: 6x 3100Kv motors, 6x Turnigy Plush 12A Esc's, EzUHF 8ch lite Rx, EagleTree Vector Flight controller on a Zippy 3s 2200.
Very fast forward flight>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>! I ordered another frame for spares though I haven't needed it yet.
