Hildabeast 570mm 14" Prototype #1

One more vision that slowly in collaboration with Stefan van der Ende is becoming a flying reality. Meet the Hildabeast! A 570mm quad swinging 14" props that does 100mph+ on a 6s lipo.

I've been flying one thing or another since the late 80's but until your holding this, see it in person, or hear it do a 100+ mph overhead flyby it's very hard to describe it. The Hildabeast is definitely a different creature. I'm hoping to get more testing done ASAP but for now here's a few photos including a 5" size comparison.

More to come but I consider this a successful maiden on unbalanced props and a first basic tune. Cruising half throttle st 60 mph pulling around 40 amps and topped out at 108 mph pulling 186 amps. Another nice collaboration with Stefan van der Ende and Stand-In Quad Designs.

Price is to be determined at a later date.

HILDABEAST after a bit of tuning. It's coming along.

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

What kind of flight times are you getting with that set-up? I absolutely love that frame, It must look pretty wild flying over due to its size and at speeds it can run!

Charles Hidalgo   Nov 06, 2018 

it depends of course. if i just hammer on it freestyke etc I get about 4 min max with a 3300mah 6s pack.. The same pack cruising long range can get around 7 minutes. disl packs on the bottom can get quite a bit more.

I see in some photos of this build you have the 14" Graupners, and it others you have some (I believe) Master Airscrew 3 blades. What are the specs on the 3 blades? How do they compare to the 2 blade Graupners in terms of smoothness, amp draw, etc. I am piecieng together everything for this build and noticed everybody is out of stock of the Graupners right now. Looking for an alternative for now.

They are eal nice and helpful. You will also need 8mm to 6mm hub adapters.

This is awesome. Curious if you have tried using Plasmatree for tuning information on the larger setups - I'm definitely excited to tune a 10" soon.

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..
