When we started looking at different multi rotor copters that were available, we knew we wanted one of our own. It had to be really nice. We wanted a high quality frame and electronics that were proven to work. We wanted a kit that was easy to put together and flys great. The result is the Spyder Extreme FPV and Hextreme Hexacopters. They are designed by hobbyist and built for hobbyist right here in Nashville, TN. If you came here looking for a cheap sub-par starter quad, then look elsewhere. When we make something, we make it right.

The Spyder Extreme comes in one box and is highly pre-packaged. We've included our highly regarded eRC BL300 motors and our eRC 12A "Rapid Drive" multi rotor speed controllers in the package. Best of all, we've pre-soldered the speed controller leads to the custom power distribution board as well as the power leads which have a male Deans ultra plug installed. The powder coated aluminum arms have the motor extension leads installed and bullet connectors attached. You will love how easy it is to put together. And don't worry about crashing. If you do have a mishap, we have a full listing of spare parts (coming soon).

The frame is made up of black G10 Fiberglass plates that are lightweight, yet very rigid. That includes the main frame, battery tray, camera mounts, and landing gear. The arms are 10mm aluminum square tubes and have been powder coated for a beautiful finish. We used all metric high-quality hardware throughout the unit and one thing you'll really appreciate when you put it together is the fit and finish of the parts. It's outstanding and you will not have to drill or sand anything to make it fit.

We've added in some really nice features too. The battery tray is adjustable and can slide forwards or backwards to change the center of gravity depending on the size of battery or the camera used in the front. The flight controller mounting plate fits stick-down type boards like the DJI Naza, but also has appropriate holes drilled to fit standard mounting patterns for various control boards. There is a nice mounting plate for the LED module if you use the Naza controller. There are also two camera mounting plates, one for mounting CCD type cameras for FPV use and one for attaching a GoPro camera. The Spyder design allows the two front motor arms to be really short and wide so when you mount your cameras there are no arms or motors in the field of view giving you a nice clean image.

The assembly is straightforward and our assembly video seen on the support tab above will walk you through the steps. If you go with the Naza flight board then you will need to solder its LED module to the power distribution board. If you don't have the equipment to solder, simply call us and order the Spyder Extreme and the Naza Flight board together and for a $10 labor charge, we'll solder the LED Module for you before mailing out your package.
