After months of testing by some of SA's best Freestyle and Race pilots the EchoX is ready to hit the streets. This frame was literally tested at the highest level of competition in South Africa. The 2017 Open Class Nationals was won by our test pilot Josua Blom using an EchoX 5” StretchX frame.
The design was developed and tested and refined and re-tested countless times before this Championship Winning iteration was chosen.
The beauty of the EchoX is that you can “Build It Your Way”.
What this means is that you can literally change the configuration of the quad by simply choosing different mounting positions for the arms and frame plates…sandwiched between the bottom plate and the X plate, or above the bottom plate, or however you see fit. You can opt for an underslung battery position or a traditional top mounted battery.
And if that’s not enough “build freedom” for you, you can even change your EchoX from a 5” TrueX to a 5” WideX or 5” StretchX by just buying replacement arms.
But the options don’t stop there!!….why settle for 3 different 5” options when you can turn your EchoX into a nimble 4” machine…or even a 6” cruiser. The possibilities are endless.
