So you are new to Drone Racing (aka FPV Mini Quad / Multirotor) and wondering where to start? I created this guide to help explain the basic process of buying, building and flying a drone. I will also recommend some other great resources related to FPV mini quad throughout this tutorial.
In this post I compiled a list of parts and brands for FPV mini quadcopters, that runs 5″ or 6″ propellers (aka Racing Drones). It’s an awesome time-saver for your research of next mini quad build, and keeps you updated on all amazing parts .
The Diatone GT 2017 is a brilliant ARTF (almost ready to fly) racing drone. The build is very solid with top performance components with a minimalist and robust design, making it a great racing machine for beginners and advanced racers alike.
If you are looking for a tough mini quad that can handle some water, mud, snow and hard crashes, the Nimbus 195 from Aerodyne RC might be a good option for you.
This tutorial explains the basics and overview of mini quad frame, and how it affects flight performance. There are many considerations to bear in mind when choosing an ideal FPV racing drone frame.
We get many requests to recommend mini quad parts, but It’s impossible for someone to review every product in this hobby. So we have created these “Top 5 Best” lists to feature some of the most recommended products by our community through polls and reviews. This time we have 5 mini quad frames that we’d like to feature in March 2017.
This article explains the basics of propellers (props) for quadcopters. We go over the concepts of pitch, shape, difference in the number of blades and how these affect thrust, efficiency and performance.
Here we have an interesting mini quad frame from InventorFPV.com – The Sparrow Knight R220.
Artur’s last build this year is the Helix ZX6 from ImpulseRC, here he shares his impressions and some photos after building this quad.
The VSAx145 is one of the smallest 4″ frames out there. In this review I will have a close look at this new compact design. A build log of the frame will follow in the next few weeks.
I am giving the Dronehaus Mach5 mini quad frame a try. Building this quad with the FuriousFPV Radiance FC and Aikon SEFM 20A ESC’s.
The Helix is set apart from other current mini quad frames on the market, being sold as a partial kit which includes custom made FC/PDB and VTX/OSD systems. It follows a common true-X layout, but brings new and innovative ideas to the table.
