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 is the "Ready to Fly Lite" version of the Reaper including the OrangeRx T-Six radio transmitter and tool set. The model is fully assembled and factory tuned right out of the box. Simply add your own 6S 22.2V 1500~1800mAh Lipoly battery and charger to fly!

I must say this thing flies great, and it is very durable. I'm glad I decided on this, it was ready to go right out of the box. I would not recommend this as your first quad ;) but it is a blast to fly, so so fast.
I've updated my review to reflect the lack of parts availability.
I like this quad, if they ever restock the gear i need to fly it again i'll probably enjoy it, but right now this was just an expensive mistake
It's better than i expected but it has a lot of really flimsy parts. the rear mount for the canopy is very easy to break if you try to remove the canopy. the documentation is somewhat lacking. the RTF kit really needs a bit more instruction on how idle up, throttle hold and collective work. it isnt quite like the cp heli's i've tried in the past, nor is it like every other quad i've tried so a bit of unnecessary learning curve figuring out what the switches are setup to do by default.
Assault Reaper 500 is a good design 3D Quadcopter (RTF) but i was disappointed when i install battery, to see the transmitter and receiver was not binding together also after a few flight i notice one of the drive belt robin it was not aligned properly which leave me to wonder if it was tested before shipping to customer. (answer is no)
I love it came so fast and work as they said I broke it in 3 days can't wait until I get good
Bonjour, ce modle est sens tre ARF (manque les batteries)...on allume la radio, branch la batterie et ...rien, le rcepteur et la radio n'taient pas apair. Aprs "apairage", tout a l'aire de fonctionner correctement...Suite Aprs le 1er vol !
