The Spidex Micro 220 by Quaternium, is a compact micro FPV quad that maximizes the use of space with a clean purpose driven layout.
Designed by Quaternium initially as a 3D printed snap together quad it gained in popularity quickly. The small 220mm wheelbase makes this Quad fast and nimble, but there is a space/pocket for everything from a Mobius mounting rail, Battery slot, VTX cradle, and even up to a 30mm FPV cam. There are direct mounting points on the frame for the 30.5mm FC and a bay for the RX.
The small wheel base does not inhibit it from still spinning up to 5inch props and motors up to 2204s can be installed by flipping the lower plate. The snap together construction makes this a SNAP to put togther and makes crash repair just as easy.
The Spidex was too cool to only let those with 3D printers have all the fun, so we worked with Quaternium to bring this Quad to the public by molding it.

Great little frame for the price! It's kind of flexible, but hey, for the price it's good enough.Quick build and the parts quality is very good. Light weight, should be durable but I haven't made any flights yet.
The most difficult part of assembly is adding the landing legs - very tight.
While 5" props might fit, it will be highly dependent on the motors you run. I installed DYS1804-2300kv's and there is very little clearance to the top of the prop. I think that some 1806 installations are going to have an issue due to the 2mm increase (nominal) in height; 220X motors might be a challenge as the sit 1/4" or so higher due to the flipped main plate necessary to accommodate the larger diameter bell.
I'm running bullnose 4" tri-blades which clear the framework nicely and should balance out the thrust loss due to the reduction in diameter. They do scream like a bag full of angry banshees, after all.

FlySky IA6 RX/TXI bought this frame to do a budget build, and couldn't be more pleased with it's construction. The plastic is sturdy but forgiving and the kit was easy to assemble. Perfect for people like me who are just starting to build a race quad and know that they are probably going to crash a time or two. Pair it with a KK mini and a decent motor/esc setup and you're good to go.It breaks into pieces every time I crash it. The pieces go back together fine, but they just don't join well enough. I suppose I could wiretie them at all the joints. I wound up giving up on it, but later used the base for a quad all by itself. It is great for that if you can figure out how to mount the FC and battery.Much smaller than I thought, but it's a great frame. Had problem with getting the battery to fit in the slot provided. Ended up reversing the top part of the frame. Mobius slides perfectly into the battery slot, and a bigger battery fits in the old Mobius slot. Go figure! Have put a Sky 3 Quattro 4 x 12A ESC into the quad - mounting holes fit perfectly. Have selected a CC3D Atom FC, and have stacked this on top of the Sky 3 Quattro (another reason why I had to reverse the top frame). The motors are the same as in the video ... 4 x Quanum MT1806. The props are Gemfan 5030 which seems to provide the needed lift.FANTASTIC frame, just received it and it looks really durable. The plastic looks like virgin plastic. It does have a bit of flex, but that is what will make it indestructible. This is one of the best frames HK has ever brought in the market.plusplusplusottimo prodotto, comodi per la rapida estrazioneplusplusplusplusplusplusSnaps together and has a spot for everything. I like how it helps tidy up a build by showing one where to put their equipment. Wish they had one in the 320 range.
