We are ecstatic to introduce the Xhover Stingy! We worked closely with Xhover Team pilot Kevin Dougherty, AKA Stingersswarm, to come up with the ultimate freestyle frame. We flew him out to Xhover HQ, sat down with him, threw ideas out on the table, went back and forth with variations of this frame, and had him test fly them to create a frame designed to his specific needs and one that we knew all of our customers would enjoy. After months of R&D, we finally designed an exceptional flying machine! A true X top mount and low profile FPV freestyle frame!
The Xhover Stingy is a true X design that features a low profile design keeping everything low within the center of gravity. Keeping the FPV camera protected was a challenge, however we came up with a unique camera plate. This plate provides protection from hard impacts when landing or bottoming out. Our unique way of removing the arms was also implemented in this design. Two screws is all that is required to remove and replace a broken arm without disturbing the PDB/FC Stack.
Words from Xhover Team Pilot Kevin Dougherty
My first encounter with aviation was when I was seven years old and my Dad had Flight Simulator on our home PC. My Mom wanted to send me to bed but Dad said I could stay up as long as I didn’t crash. After half an hour of flying between buildings they both made me go to bed. I turned that passion and obsession with aviation into a career as an Airline Pilot. The first time I saw an FPV video I became infatuated. FPV gives me the freedom to fly and push the boundries of what’s possible in flight without risking life and limb. So yeah, Stingersswarm, he likes to fly stuff.
