Maximum speed (forward) 20 metres per second
Yaw rate 220° per second
Maximum inclination 45° with tilt function
Integrated GPS Sensor with "Home" option

Technology and design: A truly remarkable quadcopter! A unique design, made to the highest technical specifications – easy to assemble and easy to fly!
Polycarbonate shell – ultralight PVC! The frame has enormous strength but is still surprisingly light – the result is a medium-sized drone with a take-off weight of only 1.53 kilograms (3.37lb)
Latest generation of brushless electric motors. The four brushless motors are powerful and silent. With less friction than conventional motors, they give a higher rotation speed and optimise battery consumption.
Photos and video. You’ll get an integrated camera for photos and videos (1280x720 avi, 720p), plus the drone is also ready for you to connect your own action camera if you wish.
A professional remote control. The eight-channel digital radio remote control for the Sky Rider Drone will be given FREE as part of the series. It is a special transmitter operating in the 2.4 GHz band, which prevents external interference, even from other drones in the same airspace. The number of channels makes it much easier to fly the drone, and allows you to access special functions.
State of the art electronics. With accelerometer, barometric altimeter, gyroscopes, GPS sensor and magnetometer all included in the basic equipment.
Multicoloured LEDs. Among the Sky Rider Drone’s many charms are the multicoloured LEDs located under the engine arms. In addition to creating a striking visual effect, these lights enable the pilot to see the orientation of the model during flight.
Lipo batteries. Compared with traditional nickel-cadmium batteries, lithium polymer batteries are lighter and provide greater flying range. The flight time with the 5000 mA battery will be between 10 and 12 minutes. High winds or aggressive flying will shorten the flight time. Please start with flights no longer than 10 minutes. Spare battery will be available soon to purchase. ~

For the Sky Rider Drone’s PC interface you will need to download the latest PC Interface Q App and driver onto a PC using Windows 7 or newer. This will not work with Mac OSX. 
  
If you have a Mac, you can run Windows by using the Boot Camp Assistant and installing Windows. You may need to pay for a code for Windows if you do not have the rights to it.

    I have to say after owning and flying a number of other drones, having the opportunity to actually build one and then fly it is just amazing. The attention to detail and build quality of this drone is second to none and would recommend it to anyone thinking of owning a drone.

    With drones being the next top tech to have, this has to be one of the best looking ones so far. Designed by one of the biggest automotive styling companies out there this Drone oozes style and speed. Perfect to take on your camping holidays for that perfect view.

    Just put the first parts together. So good. Easy to follow instruction and reasonably easy to do. Cant wait to get the remaining 11 parts. Would recommend.

    The styling is no doubt one of the best looking quads out there with tech specs to match anything currently on the shelf,very high quality with real attention to detail,everything has been clearly thought out prior to production.

    To have a drone designed by Pininfarina, one of Italy's leading car design firms speaks volumes about the care and attention that has gone into creating this kit. Think this will be fun to build, fun to fly and it opens the door for anyone interested in creating their own unique video footage from the air..... The skies the limit.....

    Never thought this sort of thing would interest me but the more I read about it the more I want one! Beautifully designed, it just looks like quality when compared to other drones I have seen. I'd love to take one of these on one of my breaks to the Cornish coast and see the world from the air and record it too!
