Welcome To Our New Web Site!

Click here for a full tutorial on how to use our newly designed website!

What has been an almost two year long process has finally come to fruition! We have been entertaining the idea of providing our valued customers and amazing network of product dealers a more stream-lined web site experience, and now we are proud to introduce you to the new, improved and vastly more navigable!


  • The front page menu on the left with all the product categories on our old site has been replaced with a drop-down on-hover menu towards the top of our new web site. We have simplified our products into 11 basic categories. When you click on a particular category our internet store will open displaying all the products in that category. You can choose to sort them by list, grid, price, name and manufacturer. If you know exactly what product you are searching for, we have a category on the left underneath “Shop By” that allows you to further choose a specific item. For instance, if you are looking for a DJI Naza controller board for your Next Level Multi-Rotor, you would hover your cursor over Products from the drop-down menu and select -> Multirotor Products. From there, you would choose -> Stabilization Boards in the left menu. This will display the products in that category. Then click on the DJI Multi-Rotor Controller image.
  • Ordering a product has never been easier! Simply click the “Add To Cart” red button. Your product will go into a shopping cart that is accessible at the top of the web site. Simply hover over the Cart link to view your shopping cart or to Checkout.
  • We have added more interactive content including a Contact menu that allows you to reach any department at Innov8tive Designs. Also, under the Resources link you can find our Bulletin Board/Forum, Photos of events we have sponsored or attended, a Video Classroom that features many useful How-To videos as well as information about our Warranty Policy. A Customer Service section is also provided to answer any of your F.A.Q.’s
  • Prefer a particular manufacturer? You can browser items by Scorpion, Cobra, GemFan, APC, Next Level, GWS and Innov8tive Designs by hovering over the Manufacturers link on the top menu.
  • Our shipping platform has drastically changed. Shipping rates will be calculated automatically depending on the size/weight of the order. You will be able to see your shipping cost in real time with no base table rates that could add extra and unnecessary shipping and handling charges. For more information, please see our Shipping Information. We will continue to ship internationally but only to certain countries that we’ve outlined in our International Shipping section.
  • Our old web site had a very text-heavy front page. Our new site has a more graphical user interface with multiple images to display our new and featured products. Our deals, specials and items with the best value will be featured on our front page slider. Clicking on the item will take you to that items corresponding page.

  • On the right hand menus and from the Resources drop down link, you can access our Forum. It is built into the blog itself. Registration is not required, but suggested to customize your Guest profile. Feel free to post any topics or questions related to the hobby.


Aside from adding dozens of new products, you can still expect the same dedication to customer service and product support. We sincerely hope that our new web site design improves your online shopping experience. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to email our webmaster at:

  • Pricing — our prices have remained the same. In fact, we’ve added over 80 products to our Specials section with discounts up to 40% off their retail price! We have also reduced the prices of our entire Cobra Brushless Motor line across the board of 30% off retail.
  • Location — our internet store can always be found at and our warehouse and offices are still located in sunny Vista, California.
  • We are still the United States distributor of Scorpion Power Systems, Cobra Brushless Motors, Next Level Multi-Rotors and GemFan propellers.

Next Level Combo Kits Are Now Available

We have had a lot of requests for complete Combo Kit Packs for our new line of Next Level Multi-Rotor kits to help take the guess-work out of selecting a complete Multi-Rotor system. We have put together a group of complete packages that contain all of the parts needed to put together a multi-rotor kit. These Combo Kits contain the multi-rotor frame, 4 motors, 4 speed controllers, 4 sets of motor lead extensions, 2 sets of propellers and 2 sets of bullet connectors so you have a perfectly matched set of components that is designed to work together. We have set up both Standard Power and High Power Combo Kits with our popular Scorpion and Cobra brand motors, depending on if you are simply Sport Flying or intend on using the multi-rotor craft for FPV work or aerial photography. We are also throwing in a 4-to-1 Power Harness at no extra charge as a bonus for getting the complete combo deal. In addition to the combo kit, you will still need to purchase a Flight Controller Board, and a battery, as well as provide your own transmitter and receiver.

For complete information on this new product, please check out the Next Level Multi-Rotor Combo Kits on our site.
