I thought it would be cool to take my alien back in time at least video wise.

This video has two different quads (Reverb and Alien), both running 32A KISS ESC's, but one of them is KISS V1 FC and the other is V2. One of them is also a 5in and the other a 6in. Can you tell a difference? Even if you can, they both fly incredible and the weather yesterday was perfect! Enjoy, and please consider subscribing!

We aren't going to need the full range of extensive testing we would do with a brand new frame, but also we can't just cut it without making sure it's solid first... Hopefully won't be long. Turnaround time should only be about 2 weeks from when we start manufacturing.

Honestly I really love this thing. The proportions of the shorter body, lower standoffs and new K plates/top plate design really just looks how an Alien should look. Can't not fall for it when you see one in real life

Good points with the Lipo pads, we won't get to that immediately but definitely will start looking at some changes there.
We know it's ready when it's ready but... how is the testing coming along ?

Well it basically is ready, but we have a few different things pretty much ready all at the same time. We've had some tough choices about allocation of funds and which products to push forward first. Sorry to say that the Alien 4" body updates missed out on this production cycle, but will definitely be in the next.

However there is some good news to go along with the bad... You can expect something else shiny and new coming along in the next few weeks instead, with the 4" body updates coming not long after

Not really to be honest, we just caught with our pants down. We were running a little lower on stock than I normally would have liked and then we got hit with multiple large reseller orders in succession. Everything is on order and being manufactured though, normal service will resume shortly

You called this many months ago, think you might finally get what you are asking for

That is on the cards, but I've been away visiting family in Europe for the last 6 weeks so forward progress slowed down on new projects unfortunately.

New up/bottom plates and k-plates slots horizontal spacing


Hey guys, quick question, is the spacing between k-plates slightly increased in this latest revision?
I checked placing a mini size cam with brackets and it fits perfectly on the reverb while on the v1 alien forces a bit the k-plates in to a slight bend, was wondering if on the latest revision this had been adjusted.
Thanks!
