full outdoors, high speed Scarab Avatar Scorpion styled drone Carbon/ Delrin™ - yes full Carbon Version - 3 x 300w 888kv motors and the PARIS AIR autopilot (GPS Return to Home option) , 2xdigital servos - - Avatar has been in the hands of our Pro-Pilots for months now and they love it! Scarab Avatar is a highly manoeuvrable FPV Avatar RC drone in the <1kg class with an excitement level suited to gamers or pilots with fast reflexes yet is much quieter than other Quads - it is stealthy. With twin-front rotating engines this craft has powerful thrust vectoring and can yaw twice as fast as any other multicopter - it will change the way you fly in minutes. Inspired by the famous Scorpion bi-rotors our goal was to design a multicopter where the rear prop could be hidden below (or run high above as an alternate build choice) - with a wide flight envelope and capable of fast and stable forward flight and blistering stop-n-turn performance. Scarab Avatar Tricopter uses twin front rotation motor/props/booms and one fixed rear downward facing prop - this is the secret to the amazing stability and forward flight performance. The Avatar can be flown by direct Line of sight LOS using the included Andromeda, or can be fitted with FPV camera and special cloverleaf 5.8Ghz antenna to receive clear images (on your Video googles or 7"LCD display - not included - see link at the bottom of this page). The Avatar is very similar in size to the Quad Reconn - the main difference is the Quad Reconn is designed to run a GoProHeroHD shooting HD video out front (LiPo balanced out the back) whereas the Avatar is specially designed for FPV/LOS with video being recorded on a PVR Ground station(not included) - as a result the Avatar is twice very manoeuvrable - and looks and flies like the real thing - Avatar style

Was looking at getting one of these for some time mostly because it is one wicked looking airframe and the twin front rotating booms are certainly unique.
Awesome build and really is an amazing looking piece of kit; high quality with a superb finish. Easily looks better than any other tricopter I've ever seen on the market.
This is also a smooth flyer and it's tilt vectoring booms mean it will perform flat spins with ease and enable you to pull off things not possible usually possible on a standard quad and of course it looks great doing it.
There is one downside; the twin vectoring booms will always be a weak leak in an accident. The frame body and rear tail are all braced with thick carbon and will survive a decent impact but you must be aware the leverage afforded by the tilt booms can also put large strain on the servos in an accident (though if you don't stack it, this'll never be a problem ;)
Absolute love this kit and seeing it fly through the air is always a talking point no matter where you are.
Nothing else on the market quite like it.
