Buyers placing an order before February 12, 2021 can take advantage of the introductory sale price of $88,650 for complete kits.

Rotor X Phoenix AX600 Turbo Specifications:

  • Gross weight: 1630 lb
  • Payload: 545 lb
  • Endurance: 2 hours
  • Service ceiling: 11,500 ft

Rotor X plans to provide flight training as soon as May 2021.

Kits sell for 50% down, with the 4 kit stages delivered in 90-day intervals—providing the builder time to get the kit done within a year while working on the weekends.
