New Product Alert - Take off with Red5.co. UK’s Quadrocopter
London, UK, 25th July 2012 – RED5.co.uk, the ultimate gadget shop, today announces the launch of Quadrocopter.
London, UK, 25th July 2012 – RED5.co.uk, the ultimate gadget shop, today announces the launch of Quadrocopter, which features Quad-Rotor technology which provides incredibly stable flight by dynamically altering the speed at which the individual rotors spin in relation to one another. Quadrocopter is available to pre-order today for £68.95 from RED5.co.uk, with stock due in mid-August.
Due to the power that the four rotors give the Quadrocopter, its speed is quite something to behold - although we recommend that you work up to top speed gradually to avoid mum’s precious china! Now you’ll be able to create true 3D flight patterns (up/down, yaw, banking and pitch). You’ll be surprised how stable this craft is, but even though it’s smoother than a waxed fish, we’d still recommend taking it slowly as the four channel control takes a little bit of time to master.
To help ease you into the ways of this machine, there are 3 different control modes that you can use. These enable you to set the right-hand control lever at a different percentage of the maximum banking level. This essentially means that you can limit how fast and sensitive the controls are, which is great when you’re just starting out. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can set the banking level to the maximum percentage and flip your craft through 360 degrees as you develop your skills as a super-cool trick-master!
The battery is easily replaceable, which means you can have one battery on charge whilst using the other in your craft. With its built-in gyroscope, this stable flier is the perfect introduction to Quadrocopter flight and is perfect for anyone who’s tried remote control helicopters and wants to move up to the next and more exciting level of RC flight.
