EMAX 250 Vs. Diatone #37 Silverblade.

I want either for my first 250 quad, Will be doing some racing, so handling is important as well as durability, the advantage of the diatone is its cheaper, white and has a pdb with lights, the emax is the best in durability at its price point, no PDB, but has alot of space .
Pls state whether both of them will perform well, and is the diatone durable?
Thanks

I'd go with the ZMR250. A lot more options and really cheap frame even if you go with carbon fiber.

or from the US:

BTW, I have a Diatone. Learned to fly with it and it is a good training platform, but durability is not its strong suit. Landing gear breaks easily.

Well the Emax is better than the zmr as it has thicker arms, landing gears will be replaced with standoffs almost instantly , everyone complains about them, I just want to know whether or not the diatone frmae is strong enough?

Its a great platform to learn to fly with LOS. I built mine with a CC3D and have had a blast with it. Even added an FPV camera, but it is not optimal with that. And a hard landing will break a leg or 2. You will forever be repairing the legs. I've just printed up a battery tray for it to protect the battery and act as a landing platform so I can get rid of the legs. I'll let you know how well it works when I fly it later today.

{Ignore the white on the battery tray. I tried dipping it in acetone to get a better surface with poor results}

You'll notice the broken off landing gear on the ends I tried printing with no success. Not strong enough.
