The Kraken 5 is an ultra light weight and tough quad which is designed and made to win races. The Kraken frames were created in collaboration with our top team pilots with the goal of producing an ultra competitive race winning performance.
Kraken frames feature true symmetrical X design with superb flight characteristics and outstanding maneuverability. Coupled with our unique molded aerodynamic polycarbonate pod the Kraken 4 delivers a racing pedigree that is hard to match for speed, handling, weight and strength.
Key features include:
unique molded aerodynamic polycarbonate pod
4mm thick carbon fiber arms
not a unibody, it has replaceable arms
true symmetrical X design
fits full size FPV equipment including HS1177 camera
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.
The K5R is built lighter whereas the K5X is built tougher:
K5R has a 1.6mm PDB whereas K5X has a stronger stiffer 2.0mm PDB
K5R arms are 12mm wide at narrowest point whereas K5X is 14mm
K5R uses the 2.0mm pod whereas the K5X uses the 3.0mm pod.
The K5W is an extreme light weight quad featuring aerodynamic performance. Despite weighing only 50 grams, the frame will survive a surprising number of tumbles. This is frame used by many of the worlds top pilots including rekrek, ghost, mad air, Julien FPV, waffle, jeddy, banni and many more!

The Kraken 6 GT
The Kraken 6 GT is an ultra-light weight and tough quad which is designed to win races and delivery 'butter' handling with the higher MtM size. It's unique design and manufacture makes this frame lighter than most 5in frames.
Kraken frames feature true symmetrical X design with superb flight characteristics and outstanding maneuverability. Coupled with our unique molded aerodynamic polycarbonate pod the Kraken delivers a racing pedigree that is hard to match for speed, handling, weight and strength.
The Kraken 6 GT features replaceable arms made from a carbon fiber foam sandwich that provides greater tensile strength to weight ratio compared to solid CF arms. In simple terms, the 5mm arms are stronger yet lighter than equivalent 4mm thick arms.
All up build weights are approximately 300 grams excluding battery.
The K6 arms are fully compatible with all K3, K4 and K5 and K7 frames. As the arms are 5mm thick, longer motor mount and frame screws may be required when converting existing frames. We recommend M3x8mm motor mount screws and M3x15 frame screws.
