XHover is very proud to announce the release of the new Stingy V2 Frame, a frame that is the culmination of Team Pilot Kevin Dougherty’s experience in FPV and the advancements of flight technology and improvement to on-board electronics. In the past couple of years there have been so many on-board electronics advances that it was absolutely necessary to update the Stingy frame. The current field of micro cams produce great images while reducing the footprint needed on the quad. With a smaller camera there is no need for a large cut out in the main plate. Because of this fact, XHover were able to design a much more robust frame to stand up to the demands most pilots put on their quads.

The special Forged Edition of the Stingy V2 is the first frame to offer the great looks of forged carbon fiber with the durability of the Torray T-700 S Nano alloy inner structure carbon. Building on years of work in the field, XHover designed a carbon fiber frame that is layered up with a full Torray T-700 S Nano Alloy inner-structure sheet, that provides a solid and strong inner-sheet. But at the final stage of production, a forged carbon fiber sheet is layered on top and bottom of the T-700 sheet. This final process gives a great finished look of forged carbon to the entire frame. This creates the best of both worlds, a great looking Stingy frame with improved strength and durability.

The Torray T-700 S is a special Nano alloy resin blend. The “S” designation is for a very high strength, high yield carbon fiber sheet. XHover get the pre-preg sheets, this means that Torray puts the resin in the carbon and makes large sheets specifically for them. This allows the sheets to have the minimal amount of resin. Resin is the weakest part of the frame, and resin is the heaviest part of the frame. This process gives XHover frames the maximum amount of carbon fiber (strength) with the minimum amount of resin (weakness).

Now looks are great, but this is, at its heart, a freestyle frame. To keep things compact and light, XHover integrated a soft mount solution for the 20x20 FC and VTX hardware, while keeping an option for full-size 30x30 stacks as well. Regardless of the build configuration you have, XHover has an entire line of 3D printed mounts to ensure the perfect fit for any and all of your flight hardware.

The absolute advantage of the Stingy V2 is in the flight performance. The V2 flies perfectly balanced because of the wide stance with a true X configuration. This wide stance and lower center of gravity contributes to a solid flight stability in the air and on the course.

Kevin Dougherty said it best “The original Stingy was the culmination of my experience in FPV and what I envisioned as the perfect frame for me. I stand by that statement and still consider it an excellent frame. However, much like a Stingersswarm flight, technology does not slow its pace. I have seen so many improvements to the electronics that I felt it was time to update the Stingy to take advantage of those improvements.”

The bottom line is that it’s the little things that make a big difference when flying The Stingy V2 has stout 5mm arms that can take a solid hit and continue on, but if needed, are easy to replace. The soft mount 20x20 stack insulates all your electronics from many types of impacts. We can say that the Stingy V2 Forged will be able to stand up to the demands that any freestyle pilot needs for their quads on a daily basis.
