The protective sandwiched design of this quadcopter makes this an excellent entry level racer drone. Intended for intermediate fliers wishing to experience FPV racing. VIFLY is a technology startup who is dedicated in FPV racing drones. Their goal is to design and produce one racing drone that everybody can fly. Currently being offered via indiegogo

– Good stable flier, particularly in Angle mode. Should be a good entry level racer for intermediate fliers (NOT recommended for total beginners. This is not an appropriate learn to fly quadcopter.)
– Unique sandwich design. All flight components are encased and protected within rubbery side panels, and composite top and bottom plates. I didn’t crash test it, but it sure feels and looks like it can easily withstand a crash.
– Swivel lens 600 TVL camera.
– 40 channel FPV transmitter, with LED display, and selectable power levels (25mW, 200mW, and 500 mW). Comes with RHCP antenna.
– On Screen Display (OSD)
– 20 A ESC’s, and 2300 KV motors.
– 3S 1500mah battery (can use optional 4S)
– Low power, or lost quadcopter beeper.
– Output video and power plug for optional DVR.
– RTF, comes with actual Flysky i6 transmitter

– This was a prototype verion of this quadcopter. The transmitter required some programming of its settings.
– Difficult to access the interior components. This is by design to protect these components. But advanced fliers who like to tinker with the innards might not like this πŸ˜‰
