  • 5" Platform
  • Prototypes weighed in at ~85g
  • Ultra Small Profile
  • 5mm Arms
  • 3D printable accessories available on Thingiverse
  • Proven Results1
  • Third and Sixth Place at the MultiGP National Championship
  • First and third place at the Great Lake's Cup
  • Trusted by the pros
  • This is the official race frame of Team Indy 5, whose members include both DRL's Nurk and Jawz
  • Designed for Durability
  • Light weight frames are great, but they're obviously much more prone to breaking on impact. The HyphyLite is designed by the Indy5 to take the beatings we throw at it and still be good to go for the next heat.
  • One-Screw Arm Swaps
  • Optional Arm Braces
  • Two configurations: standard or slammed
  • Runcam/Foxeer Micro's only
  • The distance between the camera plates is 20.5mm, allowing you to mount a Runcam micro between them with a flat o-ring/rubber washer on either side to provide some extra grip on your camera and better retain its angle during flight.
  • 4n1 ESC / AIO's recommended
  • 3-hole motor pads
  • About as protected as an FPV camera can get
  • Designed to look radical

Designed as the official frame for team Indy5, the HyphyLite is our latest take on a more sleek, purposefully designed race frame. I pulled in the entire team on this one, and designed something that we all wanted to fly. We worked in narrow, 5mm arms with a 3-hole mounting solution for added strength and rigidity as well as full camera protection for Runcam Micros. One-screw arm swaps, more convenient that noodles in a cup. Keeping it all in a tight package is always the trickiest bit, so we've designed a frame with two configurations. The standard configuration (arms on underside of the body) offers a nice tight and tidy package with ample room to build, while the slammed config (arms on the inside of the body) is a nice challenge to get everything to fit perfectly inside and results in a pretty rad little frame. The first prototypes have come in at just about 85g on the scales, utilizing 2mm plates for the top/bot/mid. Our primary objective, however, wasn't weight loss; it was durability. We wanted a sleek, more aerodynamic frame with a smaller body and narrow arms that would hold up to a beating. Between the lot of us, Hyphy frames see several hundred packs a week in total, almost entirely around tracks on practice and race days. We're sick of breaking carbon and we all agree that sacrificial arms are bullshit. So we designed something nice and tight, dropped the overall weight on our builds by around sixty grams each, and are still running moderately heavy builds by today's awkward standards. My personal builds on these frames, with Emax 2306 motors and Racekraft 5051 props, come out to right at 320g, while Jawz's builds landed just under 300g. We're not after ultralight, but rather seeking a rock solid platform that's competitive to the finish line and holds up to our ridiculous levels of abuse.
