An excellent strong lightweight glass fiber Quadcopter frame with landing gear and a bonus power distribution board (PDB) build-in for neat and easy wiring. This Quad has 480mm motor centers so is ideal for 9 and 10 inch props and it also has an adjustable battery mount to achieve the perfect weight distribution and the bottom frame is ready to take a whole host of camera mounts and gimbals making it perfect for FPV and filming projects.

The S500 is supplied with 2 x blue and 2 x black arms that are super ridged and have a carbon fibre rod through the center making for the strongest arms we have seen to date in this style of frame. The Blue and black arms make orientation much easier and there is no need for different colored props. The included landing gear has plenty of height making it suitable for GoPro type gimbals or similar. Another feature of the S500 is that when assembled the arms have a slight up sweep, this gives the Quad a dihedral effect which helps make it very stable, especially when descending from altitude.

Assembly of this frame is super simple with pre-threaded sleeves for all the frame bolts so no lock nuts are required. It utilizes one size bolts for the entire build which means you only want one size hex for the assembly. Another feature is the locating tabs for the arms which enables you to achieve the perfect alignment when building. The motor mounts are ready to take a selection of motors with mounting hole centers of 16, 19 and 25mm once again making this a very universal frame at a very affordable price.

We offer a full range of multi-rotor flight control boards, motors, speed controllers, batteries, camera mounts and gimbals and much much more. Take a look at the related items so you can build your S500 and know it is going to perform brilliantly, it has never been easier or more affordable to get your Quad in the air. 

Features:
• Built from quality glass fiber and polyamide nylon
• Pre-threaded brass sleeves for all frame bolts
• Locating tabs for arms
• Colored arms for orientation to help you to keep flying in the right direction
• Integrated PCB connections for direct soldering of your ESCs
• Easy assembly

I use this for a filming quad, and the thing is super strong. It survived many crashes by me (and my cousin) while testing the drone (without a camera, of course) but all the legs broke off and on one specific (hard) landing, one of the motor mounts broke off but the drone had literally fallen ON the arm. Overall, super lightweight and solid thing, but the legs... Yeah, just change the legs.

This is a great frame, I've had DJI F450 frames, and I've built my own, and they don't compare to this. This frame is so light and strong, I haven't managed to crash it yet to see if it will survive but I can barely bend or twist the arms, it's that strong. The legs don't seem that strong, but there is plenty of room to install retractable landing gear. The only negative is that you can't fit a DJI Naza flight controller between the two plates, so you're forced to put it on top. Been using with a tarot three axis gimbal and everything fits and works fine. If you have a 3D printer, you could print a whole lot of different mounts for the tarot style mounts to suit your own setup. This frame is very versatile.

I Purchased this as a first build from scratch for me. I read about the legs being a concern & thought they would be ok, However I have just completed my 5th flight & had a slight bounce on landing, next thing I know is the props hitting the floor ! The legs are in deed very weak.
I cannot stress how much this can put you off this machine, I would love to be able to put a different type of undercarriage on it!
Other than the legs everything else is spot on.

I wanted to build a quad from scratch to fly a Gopro 4. Overall I'm happy with the product, but if I would have to do it again I would get a S550 hex and 4S battery because of the extra lift capacity. Without the gimbal I get 14 min of very gentle flying with a 3S 5000mAh nanotech battery and 10x4.5 props. With gimbal ~10 min.

Two things to consider are the screws are of poor quality, after assembling/dissembling the frame a couple of times during building the heads have worn out. Furthermore I have lost a couple of the screws during flight.. Secondly the legs are very poor quality and break very easily! The rest of the frame is very strong, I have a pretty bad crash and only the legs broke!

My setup:
Multistar 2216-800kv motors
MultiStar 30A BLHeli-S ESC
Gemfan 10x4.5 and 11x4.5 props
5000mAh 3S lipo
DJI Naza-m V2
DJI Zenmuse H3-3D

My gain settings:
[Pitch, roll, yaw, vertical]
Basic: 120, 120, 100, 120
Attitude: 100, 100

Angular rates: 200, 200

This frame is sturdy and easy to assemble, the legs are plastic but sturdy, However there is not much room for my Naza m lite flight controller. I mounted it on the bottom plate and the top plate pushes against the flight controller when I mount the top plate. I don't have any room to put my battery strap through the top plate. I wish HK would have put in the item description that this frame best fits slim flight controllers.
