KD50 Frame Kit - £349

The KD50 X8 is a 5" double pusher design with the most versatility on the market for a cinelifter whoop! It features front and middle camera mounting, naked Blackmagic mounting, top and bottom battery mounting, and an innovative plug layout for easy building and access to all the components inside. It has rear and side antenna mounts, XT30 mount for camera power, foldable landing gear, and it flies amazingly well. You can even make an X4 from the same parts! Scroll down for more details.

Double Pusher

Double pusher with plugs! The top and middle ESCs can be connected with an XT60 and ESC plug so you can access everything without desoldering anything. The build is also so much easier. Changing the top layer props takes only a few minutes, the bottom ones are exposed so even quicker. See the picture for how the top and middle plates plug and screw together, and the video of me doing it in real time. This is so nice to have on a caged X8!


It flies very well. The frame is super stiff while being only 450g, allowing for a tight tune and low resonance. See the unstabilised videos and logs below.

KD50 X4 Option
