With the one year anniversary of the 10" Hildagard 395mm frame fast approaching I want to do something special so soon once I figure out how best to go about it all will have a chance to win a free Hildagard frame of their own. It's a small way for me to show my appreciation. I want to personally thank everyone who has supported this very special frame as it means more than you all know to me. I never thought that when I went to Stefan van der Ende with a personal dream of a frame I had been thinking about for almost two years that it would be so accepted by others and turn into what it has today.

In honor of the occasion I thought a new build was in order sporting diversity and some beautiful custom motors.

Thank you all again for helping my vision spread worldwide with all the beautiful builds and flight videos that have came out in the last year from so many of you from all around the globe.

Stefan and I are not done by any means so be on the look out for something new and very special coming very soon from us.

With the announcment of the new Beast Class racing (10-13" prop based frames) I would like to remind everyone that the Hildagard 395mm 10", Hildabeast 570mm 14" , and the just announced Hildahex 528mm 10" (price soon to be announced) can be found for purchase as always at https://shop.almondracing.com/ and http://charleshidalgo.com/contact/

Chinese New Year has slowed things down a bit but things are starting up again and will be back in stock and back to normal very soon. Orders can be placed at anytime though and are DHL Worldwide Express 5 day shipping to your door with all hardware included.

You can contact Stefan van der Ende or myself also for any questions or head on over to https://www.facebook.com/groups/standinquaddesign/ or https://www.facebook.com/groups/380148546148387/ for more information and discussion.

Thank you for all the support. 2018 was quit a ride with some groundbreaking results and with the 2019 announcement of Beast Class racing the Hildagard, Hildabeast, Hildahex, Nasty 405 and others might be just what you are looking for. Many customers are flying and have been flying these frames since as early as February of 2018 in several countries and continents all around the globe.

Thank you

Nice build! Ever thought about making smaller frames? I'm sure more people would consider them since it is a more popular category. Still this is by far the most bad-ass prop size, large enough to make your 5 inch look tiny, but small enough to be flyable with acro-like manoeuvres haha!

Your photos are exquisite as well as the quad. I am too lazy to clean the table before taking pictures. Kids are leaving too much stuff there.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
