Inexpensive RTF with AUW of 200g?

Just a discussion on any cheap RTF drones which can carry about 200g.

The only one I found to fit the description in the title, is this:

http://www.foxtechfpv.com/beetle-300...bo-p-1913.html

I am new to multicopters. Even so, I never really heard of Foxtech.
Anyone have any reviews/ opinions of the drone mentioned above?

Does anyone know of anymore similar drones?

I wish to mound a raspberry pi on it and maybe some antennas.

An rpi already weighs 45g, which worries me what batteries can give optimal flight time without taking too much weight...

That said, it would be better to have some excess weight carrying capability on the multicopter....

Hi,

Anyone know anything about this?

http://www.xheli.com/05h103-hex-p3-red-rtf-24g.html

It sounds too good to be true for the price though... A RTF drone for $400-ish with carry capacity of 1360g (3lbs)...

Is this true? Or am I misreading something here?

beetle 300 is the option.

and i think QAV310 is also ok. Just use relatively larger props and motor, it will be ok.
2214 motor 8inch prop.
it can meet ur goal

Ohh....

I couldn't find anyone who mentioned its payload though, can it really carry more than a kilo?

It is an also an ARF, but no one mentions what needs to be done to make it RTF. Help!

I see.... Btw, do you know any reasonably priced remote controllers that can work with the beetle 300?

Welcome to rcgroups! Try putting your questions in the multirotor section not the scale ARF plane section. you will get a better responce.
