With a flying weight of under 68 grams a big fun. The FPV Micro Racer is so great to fly. So far, I have had so much fun with only 5 inch racers, but never with a micro racer with a size of 105mm motor distance. Betaflight 4.0.2 is installed on the SailFly X. The throttle is limited to 75%. If the throttle is set to max. 75%, you have no more vibrations and the battery lasts longer. I've taken over the PID settings from the YouTube Albert Kim channel.
The flight behavior of the Micro is awesome. Fly perfectly with the original 3S 300mAh Lipo.
There are only two disadvantages of the SailFly-X and this is the D8 receiver loses the connection after 100 meters and the bad video antenna that does not reach more than 100 meters. I have already flown other racers with 25mW and they had better video channels or antennas and thus a better video reception. The D8 receiver can be replaced by a FrSky R-XSR or with FrSky XM receiver, then you have a perfect reception with 1 to 2 grams more weight. Then I would be at 70 grams takeoff weight. The SailFly is so durable I did not think so. I have repeatedly crashed on the hard ground and nothing. Only the propellers have bent. The propellers I could even turn back and fly on.

The freestyle frame is great. Especially the 2inch version fit on even the 2.5 inch Gemfan 2540 propellers.
Flies good with the battery on top with the Runcam Split mini 2. If you want better FPV video add a Runcam Racer 2 Camera as second camera on the top in a 3D printed case. This is my best HD mini quad, better as Beta85X or another micro drones.
The site with the 2.5inch propeller is the best solution for maximum power with the 1106 motors and 3S-4S Lipo 650-850mah.

I tested the X220HV - It flies very well. The motors are grandiose. The FPV video is very clear, if you mount the XT60 cable on the left side and disable the Speedybee Bluetooth module. Some reviewer say the ESC 4in1 board have connection issue with the FC board because the pins are too short.
My Eachine Wizard X220HV flies without problems. Very long with 4S LiPo and with many power with 6S Lipo

The new Diatone GT-R239 is the new R90 2 inch FPV racing drone from Diatone. It have a plastic frame that is flexible and therefore durable.



A perfect drone for a beginner! The electronic componets are the same as in the 2.5 inch Diatone GT-R249
Both drones have the new Cobra 5500KV motors that works good with 3S on a 2 inch and very good with 4S on a 2.5 inch frame.
The F4 flight controller is very stable and the Runcam Micro Swift camera get with the VTX a very good video picture. Ok, ok, now you did not have the TBS Unify Pro VTX with 25-800mW and now you get only the Runcam VTX with 25-200mW but the drone cost only $99 That's good price for a prefecte 2 inch FPV racind drone.



Now, I thing you have the big question as a beginner FPV pilot. Witch is better 2 or 2.5 inch drone. And, yes the 2.5 inch is better for flying.
But the Diatone GT-R249 2.5 Inch have thin arms and if you have a crash the you destroy the arms after the first flight.
So my recommendation is take the 2 inches drone and later if you can fly, then you can transfer all components to a 2.5 inch frame.
My opnion is the Diatone 2018 2.5 inch frame better, durable and you can put on top a mini HD camera like the Firefly mini HD camera or the new Quelima SQ20 Mini HD Camera.
But currect you can not get the old Diatone 2018 frame because it is sold out and you can get only the GT-M2.506 bottom carbon spare part and get the aluminium canopy from the available Diatone GT-M2.5 Normal Plus...Continue Reading

This is the Happymodel Mobula7 that is a Tiny Whoop drone with 1S and 2S Lipo power.
M7 is light, very fast and flies over 4 minutes. I just can not find any negative points on the Whoop. The Snapper7 1S Whoop was good, but M7 is much faster, more aggressive and weighs no more than the Snapper7. And if someone needs slow flying, he can fly the Mobula7 with a 1S Lipo. The changeable angle of the camera is practical. Outside you fly fast and need a steep angle of the FPV camera. Inside with slow flies one places camera completely flat. Inside, the FPV camera is sufficient. Outside, I would like a better FPV camera like the Caddx Turbo EOS2.

Warlark Pro 85 is some time old, but you can get it on offer for about 80 € with a Frsky, Flysky or DSMX receiver. The Tiny Whoop is with 2S Lipo what makes it so interesting. With 2S power it's much faster and more aggressive when flying than a 1S Tina Whoop. Ok, the weight of 50g is of course more than a micro Tiny Whoop with 20g.

This is the FXT Viper FPV Video goggles which is perfect for wearers of glasses. At the front is the LCD 5 inch monitor and at the back is a silicone cover which is removable.
Only one LiPo battery is needed and you're ready to go. Incidentally, the good LCD monitor can be used without the goggles.
In the goggles are two mirrors that bring the picture over a longer distance to the eyes. Thus, the goggles are quite compact and yet I can see the picture sharp with my licked eyes without reading glasses. Included are two simple linear antennas and an adapter with XT60 connector for connecting a 2 to 5S Lipo.
What I like very much, that the sun visor of the goggles is removable and so you can perceive the environment left and right and still look on the monitor. Just great as a monitor in front of the eyes and you see the environment. The monitor only shows the video in 16 : 9 aspect ratio, which may be adjustable to 4 to 3 in the future, Hey FXT support please add 4:3 aspect ratio. PAL or NTSC format is detected automatically. Via the auto search function you can find the video signal from the quadcopter, and you can save the frequency on the left. Above the DVR button, a video recording is started and with a long press you get to the video player via which you can watch the recorded video from the 32 GB SD card. This is the first LCD monitor that is perfect all round. I can use my glasses, it is very good to wear, delivers perfect FPV video and the monitor's response is...Continue Reading

This is the Happymodel Snapper7 the slightly larger Tiny Whoop with aluminum propeller protection and especially with brushless motors and 1S LiPo. My quadcopter has a FrSky receiver integrated on the F3 flight controller with telemetry!. The Whoop is available with Flysky or FrSky receiver which transmits all telemetry data to the spark. In the Flysky version, RSSI and the voltage are sent to the remote control. The canopy is made of hard, transparent plastic. The Happymodel motor is a small 0703 motor with 19000KV perfect for the 75mm frame. Optionally there is a plastic frame to make the Tiny Whoop even lighter.
