Shuriken 250 – NO BUILDING REQUIRED – Racer Quad Review

0 1,156

FULL Review of the Holybro Shrunken 250. Quick introduction, flight test, and then some studio close ups. Coolest thing about this one is that you get your choice of a Spektrum, FrSky, or Futuba Receiver with your 250 at purchase. – Enjoy the 250 guys! – Justin.

– The CPU is running 32bit. Very modern CPU.

– Elevated Fpv camera mounted on grommets for less vibes in flight video.
– Standard XT60 battery port

– CW and CCW 3mm motor shafts
– Push button switchable Vtx Channels
– Receiver bind button on the rear. Very easy to get to.
– 30A Blheli ESCs! with Oneshot 125 and Motor Braking. 40A peak! Nice!
– Dampened internal IMU for smoother flights.
– Super clean OSD included with battery voltage and flight report screen.
– Low voltage alarm. ( set yours lower. Mine was set default too high )
– Flys like a rocket on full throttle.
– Probably as fast as a Vortex pro or similar $500 quads.

– Fiberglass PDB “all in one” plate on the bottom that extends out to the motors. I didn’t break it but I worry I would. The whole thing feels durable though.
– In my flight tests it seemed to suck up a 4S 1300mah battery within 3-4mins. Which is about average with a race quad this size.
– If a battery strap breaks you have to take the top off to put a new one on. I would like this to be external mounted on the next version.

Overall Impression : This quad is a BEAST for those who don’t want to build anything. The coolest quad I have unboxed that I was flying within 10 minutes. Arco mode is not enabled in Cleanflight so you will have to set that up. I broke the top off the included antenna on the first flight. Not a big deal. Put some hot glue on the top of it and keep flying it. Hot glue helps protect is better I believe.

Who is this for? – Beginner to Expert pilots.
Race worthy? – YES very race worthy.
Can I win a race with it? – God yes.
Worth the $? – Yes in my opinion.
Value: Good
Construction quality: 4 Stars

Items needed to complete:
Battery, and Radio

Star Rating: 4 ” Good for the money! ” – Acceptable durability.
-.5 for the bottom “all in one” PDB that extends out to the motors.
-5. for power system that is battery hungry.
