Custom Built and Tuned Butterkwad Alien FPV Racing/Freestyle Quadcopter

Finally! After countless requests, heaps of planning and weeks of testing, we're proud to release a 6” ARF quadcopter built, set up, and tuned by the Rotor Riot team!

(We also wrote this long-ass text to explain why you need to buy it now)

Meticulously designed

The Butterkwad Alien FPV Quadcopter is built on the perfectionist design work of Sean and Brian, the brains at ImpulseRC. Their tried and true frame design has made drone history. Multiple pilots have taken first place in races and freestyle events with “Aliens”, and the clever simplicity of the frame itself has inspired a multitude of similar frame designs. A true classic, the Alien design gets the stamp of approval at Rotor Riot. At Rotor Riot, we decided to combine best aspects of the 5” and the 6” version of the Alien frames, creating the Butterkwad! It’s smooth as butter.

Expertly planned

Quality components are essential to get reliable and trustworthy performance - ask any professional drone racer about that. The members of the Rotor Riot Team are constantly working with the leading drone part manufacturers to push the development of quality products forward. Our team has used their years of experience to carefully select the best components for the Butterkwad Alien FPV Quadcopter, ensuring competition-class performance for every single quadcopter we make.

Professionally assembled

Building an Alien is a work of love - and we make sure that no shortcuts are taken when it comes to assembly. All of our ARF quads are built by our trusted friend TJ Williams. That guarantees that all of the soldering is performed by a skilled technician with the proper equipment. A lot of attention to detail goes into the build - every screw is tightened just the right amount! Too little and it would loosen over time, too much and it would strip the screw. Extreme care is taken to deliver a completed product without any scratches, imperfections or defects.

Custom tuned and tested

Every quadcopter gets professionally tuned, thoroughly tested and put through its paces by TJ prior to packaging and shipping. This ensures that each quadcopter performs to its fullest potential, and guarantees that it's free of any manufacturing defects.

A word of caution

This quadcopter is a beast (seriously, it’s got a lot of power) and it needs to be treated with respect. This is a sophisticated machine that requires more than basic knowledge of multirotors in order to have a pleasant experience. 

We at Rotor Riot would like to insist that you get your hands on a FPV quadcopter simulator, and practice a few hours on it before jumping into the real thing. It will speed up your learning process considerably and save you lots of $$$’s worth of repairs in the process.

Here are a few options for FPV quadcopter simulators (click them!):

This FPV quadcopter operates with Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries. Please read all safety and usage documentation for LiPo batteries before use in order to avoid injury, or damage to property or to the batteries.

Amazing Quad

This thing is a monster! no complaints about this machine! I love the prebuilt, I personally didn't have the time to build a drone, and this was my dream drone to have! The quick start guide gives you everything you need for a perfect tune and a quick set up! Had my drone out of the box and flying in 20 minutes! Thank you to Rotor Riot for building me my dream quad!! Alien 5" is next on my list!

6" Butter is so smooth

Would like to start by saying thank you so much RotorRiot for one amazing build job. It is everything they say it is 100% super build and tuned. The shipping was great with no damage, the frame was top quality and was ready to rip right out of the box. The kwad is locked in, powerful, light, and fly's like a dream. Thanks a bunch for helping me with a great build when a person just does not have the time to build there own and just wants to fly. Escape life FPV !!
