XHOVER is always bringing the best freestyle pilots frame ideas to life and this one is no different! If you know who GAPiT is, you know he does not mess around when going for the big tricks, smooth lines and of course, tight gaps... and this frame is not scared of any of those!
We are very proud to introduce the GAPiT Freestyle Frame. We’ve worked with Travis to update and polish his home-brewed modifications to the R5LX that he’s been flying for the past year.
Now, instead of cutting holes in the top plate and cramming a battery on top to be like Gap, you can get his new frame with “toilet-tanking” built in, plus thicker 5mm arms and 2mm top and main plates for added durability and integrated soft mounts to nuke that jello. And we’re keeping the features of the R5LX you’ve come to rely on, like quick-switch arms that only require an M3 driver and two bits of hardware to complete a swap.
To those scratching their heads over the battery position, Travis says, “Arranging the GoPro and LiPo efficiently keeps the center of mass more compact. When the weight is less spread out along the horizontal axis, everything is simpler to tune and more fun to fly.” And the extended footprint of the Stretch X gives you added pitch stability for consistent speed and buttery GoPro footage that’s fun to watch.
Each frame includes a custom battery pad, XT60 lead holder, Micro cam holder, and built-in FC soft mount.
All carbon parts are chamfered for a nice smooth finish on all the edges and the assembly is just about as easy as it gets.
With the GAPiT Freestyle Frame, you don’t have to chop up carbon with a paring knife and hot glue it back together to clone his setup. We’ve done all the work for you and left you plenty of room to keep building.
