FlightClub Tokio X and SX New Pricing Structure

FlightClub Tokio X and SX New Price

Hey everyone, I just want to thank everyone who has gotten a Tokio!  The demand has been far beyond what I expected.

As we prepare for the arrival of the new injection molded canopies we will start distribution to domestic and international resellers all over the world.  This will make it more readily accessible to international pilots to get the Tokio frames without paying super high shipping fees.

As of June 1, 2017 Tokio X and Tokio SX will have a new pricing structure, lower price!  To make it possible for us to resell the frames to distributors we have to change the pricing structure.  Tokio X and SX now will have a new low price of $85 with no lifetime warranty.  Replacements for broken frames will be a reduced rate of $30.  The lifetime warranty makes pricing very tricky for distribution so we’ve decided this was the best way to price it.

For the people who got Tokios before June 1, 2017, don’t worry you will still have the lifetime warranty.

Of all the frames we have shipped out less than 2% have been broken and 95% of the breaks were on the arms at the motor holes.  We have redesigned the frames to improve the arms and the next batch will have stronger arms.  This will significantly reduce the breaks.

Injection Molded Canopies

We are getting close!  I’ve been using the new injection molded ones and I can tell you they are super tough.  They are much easier to keep clean because there are 3D print gaps.  Take off the canopy and wash it under the faucet and they look brand new.  This will be great for summer flying.  My quads are always covered with blended grass after flights.

Once we have the injection molded canopies everyone who has a 3D printed canopy right now will get a free upgrade to one of the new injection molded canopies.  All you have to do is pay for shipping.  Currently there will be 7 color options, black, red, blue, orange, purple, white and clear.  Currently we are on the second prototype.  We should be getting the samples next week and if everything is good we will start production.  Hopefully we can get the canopies ready to ship to customers next month.

If you are interested in carrying the Tokio frames in your store please send us a note.

  1. Nicely done Mike. You are really building and leading a great franchise, positioned for success! Keep up the great work. ToddM

     
  2. To help strengthen the arms I really like the 3 motor hole design. It leaves a lot of material where the arm transitions from the motor part to the arm itself. The arms on the horus-drones slipstream RR are a good example of this. Just an idea and please keep up the great work! I really think you got a ton of great ideas in this quad.

  6. Is there any way to put a buzzer in or out of the tokyo frame. I often have to go find my quads a beeping buzzer is the only way to locate them.

      1. SWEEEEET!!!! Can’t wait! When will the injection molded pods be available?!

         
  8. Hey Mike cant wait to order my Tokio X. One thing I am curios about will a runcam split fit?

      hi sam, sorry I don’t know if it will fit cause I don’t have one. I’ve heard the lag is bad on those though

       
  9. Hey mike will it be possible to get a gopro hero 3/4 mount on here or maybe a custom pod?

     
    1. Author

      no sorry, even designing a mount for the session was hard enough. designing on pods is very time consuming because you’re working on curved surfaces. very difficult

       
  10. Hi, how is shipping handled on replacement frames?

    $30 for a new baseplate sounds good, but if there’s $35 shipping on top of it, it kind of ruins it…

      we have several EU distributors lined up that can help with that. once we have the injection canopies we will start distributing.

       
  11. Cant wait for this to be more available in the UK, do you have any rough timeline for a UK distriburor?

    Also will the Tokio X Build Kit be available through resellers?

    Thanks,

    Si

      hi Simon, we are waiting for the injection canopies before we distribute. We have a few EU resellers lined up. I know shipping and duties are very expensive for you guys.

       
      1. That’s awesome, this is definitely going to be my next quad. Do you have a tough idea on when it might be available?

        US import tax absolutely kills is guys in the UK.

          we have some EU dealers lined up. once we have the canopies we will start distribution. hopefully within 2 weeks we’ll have them.
