A drone with a 500mm drone frame is an excellent choice for intermediate to advanced flyers. It’s extremely stable in the air, and flies great at high speeds.
Some pilots prefer it over the more popular 400mm and 450mm frames. A larger frame will weigh more, but the extra power and longer flight time make up for it.
If you have already seen my drone frame size chart here, you will know that these size frames work best with:
- 9-10″ propellers
- 2212 – 2216 motors
- 3300mAh 4s battery
If this size is something that you are interested in for your current drone build, I would recommend these following frames:
