Hyperlite Glide 5″ Freestyle Frame
The Glide Floss is built to work for you. While it comes in nicer carbon with pretty finishes, it’s focus is convenience and compatibility rather than aesthetics. The inclusion of the taller standoff option and dead cat arms is directed at those needing a workhorse for FPV videography and absolutely must get their props out of view with low GoPro tilt. The arms are also easy to swap so you can go back and forth. This iteration of the Floss acro frame also has a longer body to ease the fit of a GoPro and various sized batteries on top along with allowing for an additional 20×20 mounting platform in front right behind the FPV camera. The 23mm standoffs are specifically measured to balance the frame properly on the Z axis and also happen to fit the Micro Eagle camera better than 20mm. Only micro sized FPV cameras will fit. Mini FPV cameras will NOT fit.
- One central 30×30/20×20 mounting platform flanked by two 20×20 platforms all accessible at all times with no interference.
- None of the stack screws touch any arm parts. No arm/stack integration.
- Two screws per independant arm with bracing against other arms. Easy swaps and secure fit.

Please thread your central stack screws before assembling the arm and lower plate complex. Also, carbon compresses over time. The arm/lower plate complex is very very tight the first time you put the frame together. each successive time, it will not be that tight.
