ELEV-8 Quadcopter Kit

This quadcopter is large enough for outdoor flight with room for payload and attachments. Get flying!




Note: RC radio equipment and battery are not included in this kit.

The ELEV-8 Quadcopters is lifted and propelled by four fixed rotors. There are no fixed wings; all of the lift is created from the rotors. Unlike standard helicopters, a quadcopter uses fixed-pitch blades, whose rotor pitch does not vary as the blades rotate; control of vehicle motion is achieved by varying the relative speed of each rotor to change the thrust and torque produced by each.

The quadcopter uses a HoverFly board with a Propeller multicore microprocessor to electronically control stabilization of the aircraft. The benefits to this system are a stable platform, with no mechanical linkages for a small maneuverable and agile aircraft.

The kit provides an inexpensive way to get involved in the quadcopter arena. The kit includes frame, mounting hardware, motors, speed controllers, propellers and the control board for flight stabilization. We recommend a six channel RC radio.

The ELEV-8 platform is large enough for outdoor flight and has plenty of room for payload and attachments (up to 2 lbs).

Please note: This kit is not for beginners, it takes a moderate amount of mechanical skill for building and flying. The ELEV-8 quadcopter kit requires an average of 8 hours to assemble; RC experience and a crash pack is highly recommended!
