Xinlin X181 FPV Drone FPV Racer Trainer
This FPV quad is very fast, and should serve as a good trainer for intermediate fliers before entering the world of FPV racers. Find it here http://www.banggood.com/XINLIN-X181-5_8G-FPV-With-2_0MP-HD-Camera-Similar-Brushless-Motor-Headless-Mode-RC-Quadcopter-RTF-p-1033734.html?p=RB0922217402201307U3
– Xinlin adding powerful large direct-drive brushed motors have produced a small quadcopter with flight performance very similar to a brushless FPV racers. Am surprised that nobody has tried this before (at least that I’m aware of)? Brushed motors do have a huge price advantage over brushless. And remember that ESC’s of brushless motors can and do fail.
– Relatively good 5.8Ghz FPV video.
– Good control and FPV video range. Was able to fly it out past 100 meters, maybe more. FPV range is similar. Did not fly out of FPV range once during my entire demonstration flight.
– Headless mode and rapid one key return function.
– Did not have any of the advertised features of brushless motors, true 720p video, or altitude hold. That being said, its excellent flight performance almost makes these transgressions forgivable.
– Weighs 283 grams with battery. Heavy enough to require FAA registration
and here is its flight demonstation.
