Raging Droner 5R from Catalyst Machineworks


Sometimes a Massive Droner isn't enough. Hard to believe right? When the "need" arises don't leave them hanging. Pull out your Raging Droner 5R and put them in their place. We are hard at work creating the next big revolution in 5" race spec frames. We took the successful design elements from our three most popular frames (Massive Droner, Merica, and Smooth Operator), and rolled the best parts of each into one amazing machine. We are in the final stages of CAD design now. Plans are to begin cutting some prototype frames to begin flight/crash testing in the next couple weeks. ETA for our first production run will be 6 to 7 weeks from now. At this point we do not know pricing. Stay tuned for more info as we develop your new go-to racing frame for the 2019 season. This one will be HARD to beat.
