The Apex shatters the glass ceiling in freestyle frame design.
Through a process of continous refinement and always striving to improve we have created a new breed of freestyle frame. The Apex does not compromise in stiffness or durability, so you never have to choose between confidence and performance.
Unique design elements new to the FPV world make your build and maintenance more simple than ever before. Toughness of the frame itself is increased while also offering much better protection for your investment in flight electronics.
Manufactured by the legendary HQProp and included free with every frame are custom skids, bumper and Crossfire antenna mount, injection molded in abrasion resistant glass filled nylon. At launch we have available Classic Black, ImpulseRC Red and Military Coyote Brown, with more colours to follow in the future.
Also in each frame kit are two die cut lipo pads for you to choose from, both an ultra durable natural rubber pad as well as a light weight velcro option for those wanting to shave every last gram.
With it's slim 5.5mm carbon arms the Apex is perfect for running both 4in1 ESCs as well as the new generation of thinner high current individual ESCs. Included with every frame kit is a set of nylon ESC wire covers, injection molded by HQProp, which conform perfectly to the shape of the arm for ultimate protection. Alternatively we also have custom fitted race wire PCBs to make motor swaps quick and painless.
The Apex frame is a perfect fit for all modern FPV electronics allowing a wide range of choices for your build, however if you prefer to fly KISS and FETtec the experience is second to none.
We have created a fully graphical OSD with a unique mounting position, along with a high powered regulator board, designed specifically for the cleanest possible video feed. Slimline LED strips at only 5.5mm wide can be mounted along the edges of the arms. A custom wiring harness completes the package and provides a super simple build and quick maintenance with minimal soldering.
The new graphical OSD is based on ImpulseOSD which was introduced with the WolfPDB - so all the popular features such as VTX and camera control and GPS/Mag support are of course included.
The main electronics stack mounting uses countersink bolts on the underside of the upper main plate. Mounting positions are provided for M3 30x30 as well as M3 20x20 electronics. There is an aditional M2 20x20 mouting position at the rear of the frame, perfect for our regulator board or many other common components.
Included in every frame kit is a Crossfire Immortal-T mount, injection molded by HQProp in pure nylon. We also provide a black anodised aluminium SMA clamp which can also act as a strain relief point for your main Lipo wires. We will also freely offer for download a range of STL files for various antenna mounting designs.
The Apex frames comes with a full 2 year warranty on all carbon and metal parts.
Using advanced image recognition and statistical analysis we have simplified the warranty process to the point that most claims will be self-service and instantly approved.
Each Apex frame will be shipped with a warranty card which includes the globally unique serial number for that frame. In most cases this will remove any need to provide proof of purchase when registering your warranty. Once a frame is registered, claims for that model in the future will be quick and painless.
We stand behind our products and we want to give you the peace of mind to know you are covered, no matter how hard you push your flying.
