The ultimate naked GoPro rig
RED KYTE Drones proudly presents the first official product release straight from the lab. After being incredibly disappointed by the performance and noise levels of ducted drones which were safe to use on our film shoots with soft targets, our beloved in-house nerd Nils, also known as Captain CAD, played around with an idea.
How awesome would it be to have an agile FPV drone which is capable of filming in up to 5K, that doesn’t rip off the heads of the people we’re supposed to film when shit hits the fan? After we were blown away by the performance of the first analogue prototype, the road led to what you're looking at right now.
A 190 gram FPV drone with a thrust to weight ratio of 8:1 (Yes, just like your regular 5” ones), carrying a GoPro Hero 10 and a Vista.
At only 190 grams (450 mAh/without GPS), this quad is one of the lightest digital drones available today. With a power to weight ratio of 8:1 it doesn't have to hide from your regular 5". Don't forget it can record in up to 5K!
You will not only be able to enjoy a crystal clear digital feed in your goggles, but also be capable of running a GoPro 10 (or 8 as an option) at the same time.
You know the stress that comes when you shoot something with a heartbeat. 5 inch quads have the power you want, ducted quads don't kill the model - but suck when it comes to performance. XDREI combines all these positive features.
Who this is for
Using a quad that only weighs a portion of what you would normally use on gigs or flying recreationally in crowded areas for example, just makes sense. You know the drill of the beloved 5 Inch FPV drones. They are incredibly fun to fly and the go to weapon of choice - until now. If you ever thought to yourself:
"Oh, the noise of this thing really seems to bother the Karens over there"
"I am really confident flying my ducted quad in this situation - but the performance kinda sucks"
"Oh shit I just killed this BMX guy I was supposed to film"
then this is definitely for you. If you have never been in a situation like this, we've got you covered: It's still an awesome little flying machine and we are sure this will be a nice addon for your collection.
We have to make clear, that this is not a BNF or RTF quad.
It's a Kit that contains the frame, a sensor ribbon cable PCB extension to use with your stripped GoPro and all the standoffs, screws, prints and braces you need. You will have to get your hands on everything you would normally source when buying a frame. After buying the Kit you will receive a list of recommended and most importantly tested parts that will insure you end up with the best XDREI version it can be.
