Makerfire Armor 90 OSD FPV Racer Drone Flight Test Review

0 634



This powerful brushless micro FPV flier is nicely tuned right out of the box. I like when the manufacturer did obviously fly and tune their product before releasing it to the public (so rare these days). This is a QC101 keeper. Find the Frsky version here on Amazon http://amzn.to/2rVXDVa and DSM version here http://amzn.to/2sBwLqU, and international buyers here https://goo.gl/eI3FyY and wholesale purchases https://goo.gl/MJQvy9

Pros
– Smooth yet very maneuverable flier right out of the box.
– F3 Omnibus flight control board with Betaflight 3.1.7 loaded.
– FPV camera and receiver are encased within a plastic “armor” canopy for protection.
– FCB integrated OSD. Can also monitor and modify PID’s and other parameters in the field via OSD menus.
– 10 Amp 4 in 1 Oneshot/Dhot300 ESC’s
– 600TVL, 48 channel, 25mW all in one FPV camera
– MKF 1104 7500KV brushless motors
– 1935 3 bladed props with prop guard ducting. Great to keep you flying after accidental impacts to tree branches πŸ˜‰
– 350mah 7.4 60C LiPo gives reasonable flight time of close to 4 minutes.

Cons
– Although I flew a prototype DSM version, currently only Frsky BNF is commercially available. DSM is next once they figure a better place to install the receiver to ease binding.
– Access to the receiver’s bind button was difficult. Had to remove the top plastic canopy to access it.
