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.

Alien RR Frame
Fantastic frame. Very mediocre top plate screws.
After stripping three of six top plate screw heads, I had to ditch the rest. The aluminum is just too soft.

Alien RR5 kit
I'm extremely satisfied with this kit. I've done tons of research and due to the amount of support and video content that revolves around this kit I was able to buy this kit as my first (ever ) quadcopter .. yeah " MY FIRST".
That's like buying a Lamborghini to learn how to drive. But ! ... again with all the RR content I was in fact able to learn how to fly using this kit and this kit alone (meaning no other quad) I wanted to say thanks to RR for helping me and my four kids get into FPV/ Quads (successfully ) and for continuing to educate and entertain us as well. The impulserc Alien RR5" is a beast, it can handle endless crashing and tons of abuse. I in fact recommend this product if your looking to LEARN how to fly FPV/Quads because it is so robust, and they have all the replacement parts you will ever need , not to mention the super fast shipping (thanks Christian). I've just ordered my third kit from RR and I'm already eyeing the butter kwad. So that will probably be next. Thank you Chad for helping me set my up taranis x9d and my alien and my kiss fc and my Esc's... if I may say the only issues I had was wiring the pnp50 since Mr Steele kinda blew right by that in his " meticulous build video" but that's definitely not a complaint. Thanks to everyone at Rotor Riot , and at Flight test for all your help. You guys are awsome, and so far every single product I've bought from you guys has showed up fast , been the right part, and has worked flawlessly. TOTAL 5 Stars across the board. I normally don't care to write reviews but with all the support from RR it's kinda hard not to reach out and say THANK YOU !
Are you still reading this ? .. go buy this kit and stop reading the reviews, I promise you will love it ! Really, go buy it before it's out of stock again....
