Gleaming with chrome, aluminium and carbon fibre, the QuadPod quadcopter looks fabulous, taking off with easy power and hovering effortlessly. At just 9" across (diagonal motor-to-motor), it is small enough to fly indoors. Yet its four powerful brushless motors make it equally at home out-of-doors, and the aircraft can carry a serious payload such as a camera, or a large battery for flight times up to 20 minutes or more. The flight controls are smooth and responsive making the QuadPod a pleasure to fly, and climbout performance is breathtaking at up to 2,000 feet per minute!

The QuadPod quadcopter is supplied as an easy-to-assemble kit, needing about an hour to build up the model, with no soldering or gluing. Everything required to build the model is included. Please see our Equipment page for accessories such as LED lights, onboard cameras, and our protective foam body.

The supplied Snelflight 2.4GHz Receiver is compact, lightweight and works extremely well. However the QuadPod is compatible with any receiver having 4 channels or more (preferably 5). If you need to buy a transmitter, we suggest the Spektrum DX5e, which is a simple low-cost unit with exactly the right features for the QuadPod. If you need to purchase a lithium polymer battery charger we can offer the IMAX B6AC - a powerful and extremely versatile unit. Alternatively the EV-Peak V3 is a low-cost alternative which is very easy to use. The QuadPod Complete Package includes our 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver, plus the EV-Peak V3 charger.

Two independent, detailed build and flight logs have been posted on RC Groups here and here.

The QuadPod is not a toy. It is a powerful machine which is capable of causing serious injury if it is not operated safely. The manual should be read carefully before the kit is assembled and flown.

The standard QuadPod operates in "X" configuration. If you wish to fly in "+" orientation then please select "elevon" mixing on your transmitter, once the aircraft has been assembled and test flown according to the manual. Elevon mixing is available on the Snelflight transmitter and the Spektrum DX5e which we supply.
