Ares Ethos FPV Quad Copter

FPV Starter Quad for under $300

Splash

Get Started in FPV

If you've been thinking about getting into FPV quad flying and don't want to build an entire setup from scratch, then you'll want to check out the Ethos FPV Quad from Ares-RC. It's a Ready to Fly quadcopter that comes with everything you need for under $300. The included FPV camera sends a live video feed to a 4-1/2" LCD screen that attaches to the transmitter and also records 720p HD footage on board to a micro SD card. It looks to be a great entry level quad to learn to fly or to get your start in FPV.

I bought one two nights ago to practice fpv since I'm new to it. Had a successful 5 minute full fpv flight with it already. It can take a beating to because of crashed ALOT.

I'm new to quadcopters. I actually just picked one of these up on Friday. Found it on CL. The guy bought it November 8th, but had to sell cause he needed the money. Gave me the receipt too. Brand new, never flown, got it for 100 bucks! I haven't taken it outside yet, just played with it in the house. Flies good, seems to have lots of power, but yeah, camera isn't too good. But. For 100.00, I'm glad I grabbed it!

I recently got one of these from my local Hobby Town and the Quad is great for someone new to this like myself. but the camera is junk. I flew once with the camera on and it worked fine but my skills were a bit off (I never flew over 2ft this first flight) but it did land on its side so I removed the camera and put it back in the box until I got the hang of flying. a week later I tried it again with the camera only to find out it didn't work so I took it back and I was told that there where scratches on the bottom so I would have to buy a new camera another $100. This thing only had one rough landing and it wasn't that hard, hell I crashed my plane harder and it still flew. anyway for a beginner class fpv the camera should be able to take at least a few bumps. other then that its a good starter

I just bought mine and hobbytowmUSA decided to raise the price ($300) to ($330) before I got it. Does anyone know where I can find batteries for this Quad?
