KiwiQuads was established in 2018. We’re a couple of young kiwis excited about the future of drone racing and want to spread and grow this great hobby. Our mission is to introduce New Zealand to Drone Racing through our affordable Starter Kits and drones that everyone can enjoy.

Drone Racing is the ultimate new sport. Once you’ve had a taste of First Person View (FPV) flying, we guarantee you’ll be hooked! Kiwis aged 12+ will love our FPV Drone Racing Starter Kits because their tiny size means fun in any weather. We design and supply Quadcopters, Components, and Accessories for your KiwiQuad.

Tristan & Oliver Meet

The founding directors of KiwiQuads, Tristan and Oliver, meet and started flying drones, racing against each other.


A Winter Flight

During the winter, they found they couldn’t fly their drones because of the rain and wind.

They started racing small drones designed for indoors and made their own race tracks and circuits out of everything including the dining room table.

KiwiQuads Est 2018

In 2018 they decided they wanted to grow New Zealand's indoor drone racing community and started KiwiQuads to introduce kiwis into the exciting world of drone racing.


Our mission is to introduce New Zealand to Drone Racing through our affordable Starter Kits and Drones that everyone can enjoy.
