This is a simple elegant quadcopter that has been designed to be painless to work on and repair. It is manufactured out of high quality 3K twill carbon fiber. The Xhover R5X swings a max prop size of 5". The R5X features a press nut system, allowing effortless removal of arms and uncomplicated repairs. In addition, the R5X consist of 2 M3 screws which permits less of a hassle when removing the arms. Fortunately, this quad copter does not require any other tools. Its unique PDB/FC mounting design allows the convenience of removing all the arms and bottom plate without removing the PDB/FC from the quad entirely making pit lane repairs much easier.

Racing drones are intended to fly fast and crash hard! You have limited time for repairs when you’re out there racing! Lets face it, time on the field is valuable and with the convenience of only needing an M3 driver to replace parts, your focus can stay on flying.

Camera options

Mounting an FPV camera on this frame is also made easy and simple. Two carbon plates hold the FPV camera tightly, insuring your camera won't tilt down or up while racing. The camera mounting system allows you to get a max 45 degree angle providing you great flying for freestyle and racing. The R5X also gives you the ability to mount an HD camera, such as a GoPro.

Simple PDB

This frame comes with a custom designed PDB with 5/12v output built in and Max input 6s (22.2v). It is important to note that some components require 5v or 12v with this PDB. There should be no issues powering small components requiring 5/12v output.  The R5X is designed to have tabs extend outside of the FC to make soldering your ESC's easier and replacing them without having to remove the flight controller.
