The Twister Quattro-X is a high performance, GPS equipped quadcopter that is capable of carrying a GoPro or similar sports camera * and has many exciting features that makes it the perfect introduction to multi-rotor flying. However, with one flick of a switch, you’re out of a stable mode and now have a performance that will excite the experienced flyer. With any quadcopter, the control software is critical to the model’s performance. Drawing on Twister’s wealth of experience and success in this area, the Quattro-X has unique control software - developed specifically for this quadcopter – to ensure you enjoy the best flying experience.
Designed from the outset to be quick and easy in the air, the Quattro-X needs little more than the undercarriage and props fitting before you’re ready to initialise the sophisticated GPS (Global Positioning System) and take to the air. Every model is factory test-flown before you receive it so there’s no guesswork… success is virtually guaranteed!
If you’ve never flown before, the Quattro-X has a stable auto-pilot and six gyro to ensure that you’re always in control. Many different flight modes are easily selected during operation, such as Altitude Hold, Orientation Mode – orientation – and a Return to Home function to safely land the Quattro-X. With high intensity LED’s aiding orientation and reporting back information to the pilot, the Quattro-X is a completely new flying experience.
A low voltage protection alarm to warn you that the flight batter needs charging and an automatic Safe Landing feature is also included.
If you don’t already own a GoPro, there’s an optional camera available that shoots 1280x720px video at 60fps. You control the camera’s angle using one of the transmitter’s Auxiliary controls and capture your flying footage to the included mini SD card.
GPS sensor is mounted in prime position, high up in the tower for superior performance and no noise from R/C components.
6 Axis Gyro for enhanced stability to ensure you are always in control.
Every Quattro-X is flight tested before it leaves the factory.
6-Channel 2.4GHZ Transmitter. Very smooth gimbals. 5th and 6th gimbal. Switches that make seamless changes between flight modes.
Flight modes are all governed by switches on the transmitter and can be changed while flying.
Take off mode – used for general flying and great for beginners.
Altitude hold mode – holds to one altitude. Can be a fantastic assistant while filming.
GPS mode – Has great holding features. You can make the quadcopter stay perfectly still in one position.
Return home mode – Flick a switch and it will return to the first point of take off all by itself.
Orientation mode – No matter which way you are facing, if you press the elevator stick in a direction the quadcopter will fly that way, even while rotating.
Safety/Fail Safe Systems
To save your Quattro-X from being involved in an unfortunate accident, such as crashing to ground if it went out of range or running out of battery, the software has several fail safe systems factory installed.
If the Quattro-X fly’s out of transmitter range it will return home by itself.
If it experiences some sort of interference it will return home by itself.
When the flight battery runs low (about 20% of your flight time remaining), the LED’s will start flashing and the quadopter starts emitting a high pitch sound. This increases in frequency as the battery gets lower.
When the battery gets dangerously low, the quadcopter will land safely where it is hovering by itself instead of crashing.
6-Channel 2.4GHZ Transmitter
Adjustable, rubber isolated camera frame allows the fitment of a GoPro or other action camera.
Instruction manual in complete and easy to understand English.
Screw driver and spanner set.
Charger & 2700mah LIPO
With its angle controlled from the transmitted, shoot high quality video with this optional 1280x720px 60fps camera. Comes with a tilt servo and a micro SD card.
Weight (without battery): 740g
Perfect for flying indoors and, with its bright LEDs front and rear, the Neon-X can even be flown in the dark.
The custom 6-axis gyro makes the Neon-X very stable so it is perfect for the first-time pilot. However, there's an aerobatic flip function and increased control throw option for the more experienced flyer.
Just install two AAA batteries into the transmitter, charge and fly.
Available in Neon Orange and Green.
SHARK - the FUN flyer!
As inventors of the world-famous EasyStar, Multiplex decided that their next aeroplane would be a modern, user-friendly design which would guarantee a one hundred percent FUN factor. They wanted to create a model which could grow as the owner’s skills developed, and would never become boring.
The outcome is something very special - the MULTIPLEX SHARK!
The SHARK looks terrific in its unusual colour scheme, and it flies fantastically well. In its standard form the model is controlled using rudder and elevator, but it is prepared for the aileron option. With the recommend Li-BATT FX 3/1-950 flight battery a minimum flying time of 10 min is possible!
It takes just a few moments to fit an undercarriage to the aeroplane, and with a further “click” it is transformed into a float-plane which provides loads of fun - on snow as well as water. We think every MULTIPLEX SHARK owner should have this optional accessory. And for the aesthetically demanding modeller we can supply a stylish protective landing skid.
When all the flying fun’s over, the SHARK can very easily be dismantled and packed back into the original carton. Highly practical!
• Benign flying qualities, ideal for the beginner; very robust construction
• Powerful brushless motor
• Clear canopy with racing-style pilot
• Wide range of optional upgrades (protective landing skid, undercarriage, floats, aileron upgrade, MULTIlight)
• Original carton doubles as transport box

- Crank case (kit) – it is rough-worked of the cast at the CNC milling cutter. After that it is covered or slashed with a special colour.
- Cylinder (roll) – it is made of one piece of dural with pressed insole from the mild-granular cast iron, it is sharpened and honed to the correct size.
- Piston – it is casted from silicon alloy with one sealing circle. The aparature for the bung 8 mm is honed.
- Piston rod – it is forging, which is completely worked. Two needle focuses are moulded into piston rod, it is made for the piston and cranked bung.
