Impulse RC Alien RR5 (Kit)


Alien RR5

5 inch Kit

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.

I'll be brief. Top quality and durability.

It can take some hits. My first kit, hundreds of crashes already and not a broken piece. That's what I call quality.

The best of the best

The highset quality kit I have found yet! Combined with the kiss fc and esc's coupled to lumenier motors it's a beast. Super easy build using the YouTube build series it takes all of the head scratching out of the equation.
