Designed from deep inside the "skunkworks" at ImpulseRC, the Alien design has revolutionized the FPV mini-quad scene forever. After debuting at the 2015 Drone Nationals, the Alien design has become extremely popular and forced other manufacturers to re-think how a good kit should be designed. The "X frame" design gives the builder/pilot a very stiff and tough design, and the FPV camera mounting design allows you to set and forget the cam angle you desire which many other designs still have not worked out.
Thanks to the attention to detail the frame is not only very durable but also flies extremely balanced. The quality and fit is top notch. Selection of the carbon plate material was given high priority, and the result is a product that is a pleasure to build, fly and own. Those little extra touches really make a difference too, such as spare O-rings and other parts that can be lost easily as well as diamond files that help with the finishing of the carbon when building.
While there are plenty of cheaper kits out there, the Alien represents quality and ingenuity wrapped up in a high quality, great flying package.

Damn you Mr. Steele......
After watching your videos and getting hooked I decided it's time for me to start my own alien build, so I ordered the Alien RR5. I haven't started my build yet because I'm saving for the smooth 5 pack, but after looking over the frame that was delivered I was very impressed. Everything was packaged separately and parts looked great, nothing was missing or broken and the quality is top notch. Great frame and highly recommend it to anyone looking to build one.

Great Kit - You WILL modify
Im a complete beginner to everything including soldering. This kit had everything needed right out of the box except a soldering gun, allen keys, precision nut/screwdrivers and experience. Packaging was very professional. I was able to completely dry assemble this kit in about 4 hours minus wiring.
Then I took it apart and fine tuned some things like extra edgework/holework, received my camera, batteries, OSD, & X8R receiver & had to start modifying.
I was going to give only 4 stars because it doesnt come with instructions but if youre buying this you will love it so im giving it FHAIVE!!!
