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.
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 .
Here we have an interesting mini quad frame from InventorFPV.com – The Sparrow Knight R220.
Apart from using drones for aerial photography, drone racing is becoming a more popular sport around the world, you cannot miss it if you are into flying multirotors or FPV.
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.
QAV-ULX is a 5″ mini quad racing frame by Lumenier. It’s designed to use as little material as possible (thus the skinny arms), and the result weights only 45g!
In this article we will review & build the Zuul Racehound V2 frame (Hovership), which is a H mini quad frame with replaceable arms.
In this review & build log, we have the Lumenier QAV-X racing mini quad frame 4mm version.
