Welcome to the Dronucopia Drone Racing Report.
00:00:18
Like any sport or hobby, drone racing and fpv freestyle flying have different levels of commitment and involvement.
00:00:24
This means the equipment you need can vary quite a bit in price.
00:00:28
For experienced pilots and hard-core racers, it can easily costs thousands of dollars for the right equipment.
00:00:34
To a beginner this can seem daunting, but never fear… there are lots of great, inexpensive racing drones that are fast and fun to fly and learn on.
00:00:43
The first thing you will need is a set of FPV goggles, or at least a portable LCD screen.
00:00:48
You can find inexpensive box goggles starting at $50.
00:00:51
Compact FPV goggles will usually start around $100 and go up to several hundred depending on the resolution and features.
00:00:58
FPV goggles are where we recommend beginners splurge as much as their budget allows.
00:01:03
Unlike your quad, you won’t be crashing your goggles daily, and they will be used with every drone.
00:01:09
A transmitter is also necessary for controlling your quad.
00:01:12
Some drones are sold as a package with a transmitter included.
00:01:15
Some come with a proprietary controller that can only be used with the included drone.
00:01:20
Others might be packaged with a universal transmitter that can be used with other drones as well, giving you more flexiblitiy.
00:01:27
Like the FPV goggles, transmitters start out around $50 and go up to several hundred.
00:01:32
Again, if you plan to stick with flying FPV then we recommend starting with a decent controller that you will use for a while and with other drones.
00:01:40
You will save money and have more flexibility in the long run.
00:01:44
Be sure to check the included accessories with the drone you purchase.
00:01:47
In addition to the goggles and transmitter, you will also need a battery and battery charger to get up and running.
00:01:54
Here are five of our favorite cheap beginner racing drones: The Eachine E013 Micro FPV Quad is a complete, cheap solution for those looking to try out FPV but have a limited budget.
00:02:07
Known as the “Small Pepper”, This Tiny Whoop is perfect for flying indoors and in close spaces.
00:02:12
The onboard gyro and stabilization modes make is easy for a beginner to fly.
00:02:17
The 1000TVL FPV camera is surprisingly good, and the included 1s LiPo battery will give you 4-5 minutes of flight time while the bundled transmitter uses three AAA batteries.
00:02:27
The combo kit even includes FPV goggles, making it one of the best beginner values at under $80. Some kits do not include a battery charger, so be sure to check the bundle you are buying to see if one is included.
00:02:37
The Blade Inductrix FPV and FPV+ have long been some of our favorite beginner drones.
00:02:41
They offer good speed and agility, and can be flown in level-flight or acro-mode.
00:02:45
They will also pair with a wide range of transmitters and goggles, and are safe and fun to fly Most of the bundles we’ve seen come with the Inductrix, a 1s LiPo battery, and battery charger, so you will need your own transmitter and fpv goggles to fly.
00:02:59
The 25mW video transmitter works with Fat Shark and raceband channels, and the included battery provides about four minutes of flight time.
00:03:08
The Inductrix starts around $80 for the FPV beginner model, and up to $150 for the FPV Plus racer.
00:03:15
You can sometimes find bundles with a transmitter or maybe even goggles, but it is typically sold without them.
00:03:22
If you are looking for a complete Ready-to-fly racing drone bundle for not much money, the Hubsan X4 Storm Racing bundle might be a good one to consider.
00:03:31
This mini racing drone sports a carbon-fiber frame and a 2s LiPo battery, providing 6-7 minutes of typical flying time.
00:03:39
The X4 is fronted by the 720p video camera, and while fun to fly, the range is limited to around 100 meters.
00:03:46
This is still a great drone for learning, and can be flown indoors and outdoors.
00:03:51
Unlike the Tiny Whoop models like the Inductrix and Eachine, the Hubsan X4 Storm does not have prop guards, requiring more caution when flying near objects and especially people.
00:04:02
While the propellers are small and plastic, they can still cause injuries.
00:04:07
This bundle comes with a proprietary transmitter and even a set a FPV goggles. Both are very basic but get the job done.
00:04:14
What makes the Hubsan X4 Storm Racing drone really stand out however is the price.
00:04:19
You can find bundles starting under $100, and bundles including the drone, battery, charger, screen, goggles, and transmitter for under $140, making it a complete value.
00:04:30
The Walkera Rodeo 110 is a solid platform for a beginner and another fast, ready-to-fly mini racing drone.
00:04:37
The racing frame is sturdy and the 2s LiPo provides plenty of power to this fast and nimble racer.
00:04:43
One of our favorite features is the F3 flight controller with Cleanflight installed.
00:04:47
The switchable video transmitter provides up to 600mW of power for the 600TVL HD camera.
00:04:52
A Bind-n-fly version is available for about $150, and a bundle including a Devo 7 transmitter typically sells in the low $200 range.This is an especially good value as this transmitter can be used with other drones as well.
00:05:09
Some bundles come with extra batteries and a charger, so always make sure you know exactly what you’re getting.
00:05:16
If you’re looking for a high-performance quad that you can fly right out of the box, then we think you should take a look at the Redcat Carbon 210 Race Drone.
00:05:23
The carbon fiber frame and solid construction is designed to take a beating, and the 3s LiPo battery sends plenty of power to the 5” propellers, sending the Carbon 210 racing along at speeds up to 60mph.
00:05:35
You can even customize your quad with a variety of available decals.
00:05:39
You will need a set of FPV goggles or LCD screen, but the Redcat Carbon includes a proprietary controller, starter battery, and battery charger as well as a hard-sided lockable case.
00:05:50
All this for around $300 makes the Redcat Carbon 210 an oustanding value for a full-size drone. This just scratches the surface of what’s available.
00:06:01
Whichever way you go, there are lots of options and good deals out there.
00:06:05
Again, be sure to check the contents of the bundle you are considering to see what else you might need.
00:06:11
Always fly safely and responsibly and away from people, and make sure to find out which laws or locals regulations might apply. Fly often, and have fun!
