Description

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.

    Alien RR5

    Best frame on the market by far. Nearly indestructible. Only reason for 4 stars is that for $129 everything should fit with no sanding or filing. Built three of these and all three I had to file the camera mount and top and bottom plate a lot to get it to fit. Other than that awesome frame.

    Best I've seen

    Posted by MaEtUgR on Apr 26th 2018

    I've built with multiple frames mostly from lumenier now and still this Alien Kit is the best in my opinion. It's easy to build, clean, good quality, and sturdy.

    Awful and Overpriced

    Posted by Michael on Jan 23rd 2018

    This frame is advertised to work with an hs1177 camera, yet the bolts to mount the camera are too big. It is literally impossible to mount the camera as the provided bolts won't screw into the camera, so when I tried to screw them in, the sensor in the camera fell out breaking it. So not only did I spend 140 on a frame that should be worth 20 dollars, I cracked a camera and am now down 160 dollars. Great job guys!!!

    This particular frame is about to be flown.... in the snow.

    I choose this frame do to its very solid construction, and its durability. The Canadian winters are unforgiving, and I plan to be just the same when I fly this unit.

    Not much of a reaponse

    Posted by Nathan Blair on Nov 19th 2017

    I got a response back about the camera. Basically they don't care. Just be aware that if you buy their camera for this frame you will either have to modify it yourself or buy a 20 kit.

    Even tho they state on the website the frame bracket is designed for that camera

    Alien Frame

    Haven't had a chance to fly it yet, but it seems solid. The PDB is sexy and with the included diamond files, it makes for a smooth-edged air destroyer.

    Great package overall but issues with the camera

    Posted by Nathan Blair on Oct 18th 2017

    The segregated package where different steps of assy are packaged seperately was very helpful. Providing the extras is a bonus as well.

    Only issue I have is that the camera bracket does not fit my camera I bought even though the XAT-600M / HS1177 FPV Camera is said to be the right one on the website. Right now I can't put the camera in the bracket and have not gotten a response back from RotorRiot regarding what to do. The bracket seems like a good idea but it doesn't work.
