New Product

Dromida Ominus


Straight from Tower "Crash it, bash it, smash it, trash it, and watch it come back for more. The Ominus is the unstoppable robotic menace of other quad’s worst nightmares, but it will fly like a dream for you. Gyro stabilization, four flight modes, high-powered motors, intense LEDs—it’s all here to help you get the most out of every flight.
This is the quad for beginners—almost impossible to break and has a host of great features.
This is the quad for average flyers—just enough help to ensure flawless flights while packing the power you need for sick stunts.
This is the quad for experts—it’s big, it’s bold, you can switch off flight assistance and revel in the pure power."
Looks pretty neat to me.

- Replace motors with 0820-15 or -17s http://micro-motor-warehouse.com/products/cl-0820-15
- Proper bearings (I use the Alias bearings from Boca) http://search.bocabearings.com/parts/Traxxas-Alias
- If you are willing to sacrifice some speed, replace the whole prop/shat/gear assembly with those from the Alias and use 9T pinions
- A better battery https://www.commonsenserc.com/produc...oducts_id=5814
-Gear Lubricant Dry Ceramic Wax Lube for bikes
- Finally, you can replace the frame with a MicroHeli carbon frame, and nothing is left of the original Ominus" -Benedikt

The other (geared, 100g AUW) quads worst nightmares are craptacular motors and bearings. So this one is the unstoppable menace of the craptacular motors?
And you are supposed to trash it after you crash it? WTH?
The marketing on this one is at least as weird as it's looks. I like it
Ordered one yesterday.
Let's beat the crap out of it!

Another brushed, geared-motor quad? It does look pretty cool.

Thats really disappointing! I replaced a few on the Alias, but they were never that bad!

Upon closer inspection: two of the other shafts are bent already too.
Alias shafts seem to fit. They are a lot harder. And shorter.
Alias shafts will need Alias props too. But that's good. The spinner-shaped thing sticking out of the center of the menace prop was probably the main contributor to the early carnage.

I have seen the Alias get the crap beat out of it, so I had higher expectations for this little guy. Hope you have a little better results next time.

may want to try this out I did it on a RC car part and it worked great!


Get the metal shaft heat it up to cherry red and carefully drop it in some used motor oil you can repeat the process 2 times.

Oil must be used so it has carbon in it and what this does is the carbon makes the steel get hardened.

Use like a little metal can like a tuna can with a little used oil in it to put the hot part in...do it out side because it can smoke a bit and you want it to be safe in case something happens.

Got mine. One flight so far, and I quite like it! Flies a lot like the Alias. A bit less stable coming out of flips.

I got mine yesterday. I bought it simply because of it's proclaimed durability and the self flip feature. I am not much on quads but my son and daughters boyfriend are and the latter is wanting to learn to fly. I have flown it a few times and really like it. First time I have ever flipped a quad!

Theimacman that is awesome news about the Tactic. I wonder why they haven't promoted this? How do you bind it and what settings are needed if you would please?
