CG stands for Center of Gravity. This continues to be a key focus of Hyperlow design. Centralizing the mass of your quad through low profile builds is key for smoother, more predictable performance. The HYPERLOW CG continues this trend by offering variable top mount build heights to fit your choice of electronics, while also allowing for an invertible mid-mount build option AND modularity all in one!
With many other frame companies in 2017 following suit and dropping their build heights, Hyperlow frames continue to offer the lowest profile builds AND allows the use of full size FPV cameras. This year we are taking it up a notch with this redesign that also takes the guesswork out of building practices.
With the HYPERLOW CG you are no longer presented with an empty cavity and left to your own devices to figure out where and how to place your electronics.
The design of this frame was focused around the standardized FC mounting pattern. This layout exist down the full body of the frame and doubles as mounting points for the new forked arms, and as individual mounting areas for each electronic component.
The FPV cam, receiver, flight controller, and VTX, all have their designated mounting positions along this horizontal layout. Thanks to the flared top plate leaving the rear clear from structural standoffs, you are also free to mix the RX, FC, and VTX order should you wish.
Component mounting plates provide a platform for easy attachment areas which also offer carbon isolation, increased airflow, and force a much tidier build. Having the components raised from the bottom plate then offers the opportunity for cleanly routing wires underneath the horizontal stack, and also allows for convenient battery strap space in the mid-mount configuration.
Extras and Optionals
Rounding off the kit are the various camera and antenna mounts, as well as battery, antenna, and landing pads for protection and isolation. Also included is a HYPERLOW GOPRO COUCH; ready to mount a Session, or provide overhead protection for a Runcam Split.

The HYPERLOW CG will accommodate any camera size. Full and micro mounts included.A pigtail VTX is recommended to make use of the rear antenna mounting point (zip ties included).Examples are: TBS Unify Pro, Immersion RC Tramp, and Matek VTX (which has convenient fc mounting holes).Care should be taken with FC orientation to keep the USB port clear from top plate and straps should you choose a lower build height.This goes for flight controllers' larger components too, such as SD card readers and soft mounted gyros. Mounting the FC inverted is often the best approach.Larger 4-in-1's that greatly exceed the standard 36mm FC size (eg. Raceflight Revolt) may require a smaller RX for a comfortable fit.The TBS Crossfire unit and smaller are a perfect match however. Full size receivers such as the X4R fit comfortably next to regular sized 4-in-1s (eg Spedix 30-35amp, HobbyWing 40a)
