A NOOBS first FPV quad build! That’s right the XHover Stingy Freestyle FPV frame has finally arrived! The reasons for choosing the XHover Stingy FPV Freestyle Frame are that I liked the looks and compactness of the quad. The airframe has that WOW factor for sure! The frame is a TrueX frame (all 4 corners measure equal distance) which should offer an all-around consistent feel at different attitudes. Offering more predictable flight characteristics.
I feel that it will have a great center of gravity and offer the stability that I am looking for.
Rotor Riot team pilot Kevin Dougherty – also known as StingersSwarm, or “Stingy” for short has been working with XHover to develop his new frame.
