Looking for a multi-rotor model that breaks all the rules?
The Reaper 500 is a fully 3D capable, collective pitch quadcopter that has set the new standard for aerobatic mutli-rotor aircraft. This is a high performance model capable of many 3D maneuvers such as loops, rolls, inverted flight, funnels and more!
The Reaper features a revolutionary frame design incorporating the use of a single motor power system to drive all four rotors. Power is transferred via a central shaft to internal drive belts in each boom. This makes for a very sleek and efficient drive system while minimizing the use of external moving parts.
The variable pitch rotor design of the Reaper 500 gives the pilot full control of both positive and negative pitch, very similar to 3D helicopter models. This opens up a whole new world of maneuvers which are simply not possible with traditional fixed pitch multi-rotor aircraft.
The Assault Reaper flight controller has been designed form the ground up specifically for use in this model, providing exceptional flight performance in a super simple and easy to use package. There are easy to access dials on the top of the control unit to allow for fine tuning of the flight characteristics of the model (no PC connection required for adjusting) such as increasing or decreasing the flip/roll rate and gyro gain.
This version of the Reaper is completely "Ready to Fly" including the OrangeRx T-Six radio transmitter, flight battery, charger and tool set. The model is fully assembled and factory tuned right out of the box. Simply charge the battery and fly!

A very good quad ! I tried it for 3 full flights so far. Battery lasts for ~10 minutes of normal flight. It flies perfectly really just out of the box. You need less than a minute to be airborne as props re already installed. Even a novice can fly it (although I would not suggest). I tried a few tricks but not flips so far. It really flies fast (at least for me who never had racing quads, only stable and aerial photo quads so far). Quality is really great, I hope it also lasts. Take off and landing is pretty easy but not as other quads like Quanum nova or XK Detect I fly so far. And still you have a nice programmable Orange Tx for other planes or quads. Just buy a couple of Rx at only 5$ and you are ready to use it everywhere else you like. The only problem I guess is spare parst but I hope I will not need for a long time...Super cool Quadcopter, perfect bild qualyty and wary good for the new way of flying. The speed and preformance on 6s LiPo is a blast. Till this time i have not seen any better quads for racing and fristail. All you need is some spare batteries FPV setup and good goggles.My wife bought me this RTF version for my birthday and after waiting 2 weeks for delivery (Global Warehouse), I was pretty keen to open up and see what is included. What you see in the photos is what you get. I had previously bought a spare battery from NSW warehouse and this had been charged in readiness. I did a quick check (shouldn't need a thorough check as it is "Ready To Fly". I fitted batteries to TX, turned on and made sure all controls worked and then started a "motor run-up". This only ran for a few minutes before the motor and Spur Gear slipped, completely destroying the Spur Gear. I can only presume that the motor wasn't adjusted and secured correctly on the chassis mount plate. Perhaps a tip for other buyers.
Not very satisfactory for a few minute motor run on a brand-new out of the box Ready To Fly Model.
I have been in touch with HK Support and hopefully they will be able to correct this situation.ridiculous... best I could think of for this one. a little touchy for movements but once you get use to it, there is just no going backOrdered on the 2nd received on the 6th....impressive.....just took a short test flight straight from the box (didn't even charge the lipo) all seems well and flies tight...no idle-up mode yet but seems really solid....sorta like a 450 cp heli....seems well built....should be loads of fun to unleash...now to order spare parts to have on hand....
