The Kraken 5R is a light weight, X quad frame with superb flight characteristics and outstanding maneuverability. This frame was created in collaboration with our top team pilots in order to produce an ultra competitive race-winning frame.

Coupled with BoltRC’s unique molded aerodynamic polycarbonate pod, the Kraken 5R delivers a racing pedigree that is hard to match for speed, handling, weight and strength.

The Kraken 5R has 4mm replaceable arms, a custom 1.6mm PDB and the Pod made from 2mm polycarbonate sheet. This compares to the Kraken 5X frame which is a heavier frame with wider arms, a 2mm PDB and a 3mm polycarbonate pod.

The frame build is quite simple when compared to other extreme X frames. This reflects the unique pod design, custom pdb and integrated camera mount. This keeps your FC stack low with ample space for your electronics.

Typical build weight is approximately 265-285 grams depending on your specific components.
