Kingkong 90GT Brushless Micro FPV Racing Drone Flight Test Review

1490184164_hqdefault.jpg




Through goggles you’ll swear you’re flying a much larger racer drone than a little micro FPV! Buy it here https://goo.gl/LA2o4Z This brushless micro FPV racer is very powerful, zippy, and maneuverable right out of the box.

Pros
– You can tell the manufacturer actually test flew this design to fine tune its PIDs before shipping (something of a rarity). It’s a very good flier right out of the box. PID tuning is not required for most fliers (except those that love to tinker). I didn’t do anything with mine to change its stock settings.
– Very powerful, fast, yet maneuverable. Through the goggles it feels like you’re flying a much larger racer. Yet it’s quiet enough and safe to fly in backyards, or even indoors (with its prop guards installed). Feel free to fly it in your local park without being hassled by “the man” 😉
– 1103 7800KV Brushless motor quadcopter.
– Provided 2S 350mah battery provides about 5 minutes flight time. Not bad for a micro FPV, especially a brushless one.
– F3 flight control board with 4 in 1 ESC’s. This makes for a lighter quadcopter, although it does create issues should an ESC fail.
– Available in four versions with DSM2, Frsky, or FASST installed receivers, or ARF (you install your own receiver).
– 800TVL, 25mW FPV transmitter.
– Does not require FAA registration.

Cons
– No Flysky version. What’s up with that?
– Although 4 in 1 ESC’s make for a lighter quadcopter, should an ESC fail, you’ll need to change the entire flight control board with its integrated ESC’s. This can be costly, time consuming, and for more experienced modelers (soldering is involved).
– Transmitter is only 16 channels, and they are kind of odd channels. You may need to select a slightly off frequency depending on your goggles. Frequencies are 5658, 5695, 5732, 5769, 5806, 5843, 5880, 5917, 5705, 5740, 5760, 5780, 5790, 5820, 5860, 5945 Mhz
– Wished it had a beeper for LVC warning.

GoolRC G90 Cheap F3 EVO Micro FPV Racing Drone Flight Test Review

1490056770_hqdefault.jpg




This little quadcopter might be for you if you’re Looking for an inexpensive but great performing micro FPV racer. Buy the GoolRC G90 here https://goo.gl/H8knEZ (only available for Frsky)

Pros
– Great flier out of the box. Fast little quad with 8520 brushed micro.
– F3 EVO flight control board loaded with CF SPRACINGF3 1.13.0
– 800TVL 40 channel, 25 mW all in one FPV camera.
– As this is a small micro, you can safely fly this just about anywhere (even indoors).
– Probably one of the least expensive micro FPV racers that you can currently find with a configurable FCB. Likely cheaper than you can build yourself.
– Does not require FAA registration.

Cons
– Currently only available for Frsky
– Video reception was perfect on my VR01 goggles, but scratchy on the recorded video from the VRD2 goggles. The quadcopters FPV antenna was “bent” out of the box. I’m thinking that I probably should have straghtened it out 😉
– Motor leads are soldered to the FCB. Wire splicing is recommended if you need to change a motor.

SK “KingKong” 260 quadcopter frame first look

1443819270_hqdefault.jpg




I haven’t seen any videos or reviews on this frame so I thought I would check it out myself. If anybody builds it before I do, let me know if you had trouble with anything
haha… just noticed they make a hexacopter too, which will also not be found by searching for ‘hexacopter’. Search Banggood for ‘hexrcopter’ to see what I mean.
