EDIT 2/22/2018 Ready to fly package is now on sale for only $171 Click me to order.

There's a new 200mm 5" racer on the block! The AWESOME ASUAV RS220 is a 220mm FPV racing drone sporting 2205R 2300KV motors, an F3 flight controller, a 700TVL FPV camera with a 600mw VTX. It even comes RTF with the Flysky FS-i6 radio, a 1500mah 3s Lipo battery, a balance charger, and a carrying case for transporting, and storing your new racer in.

Let's take a close up look at this very attractive new machine!

I will get screen shots of the stock setup, and flight video posted asap. (Screen shots, and flight video added below) I can say that this is a well tuned quad right out of the box. They have set up flight modes for you, set up the rear LED light bar, and set up motor arming. This is a truly ready to fly package. Just route the receiver antennas through the provided holder, install 4 AA batteries into the radio, install the props, charge the battery, and fly.

This package is on sale for a limited time for only $169 which is an absolutely amazing deal for a racing drone this complete, and well equipped. After my first flight, I am more impressed with this quad than I was with the KingKong 210GT, (which I really like) and this quad has a much smaller price tag.

Feel free to ask any questions. More to come soon, so stay tuned, and happy flying!!

First flight with box stock settings, stock battery, and stock props.
