This will be a written review but I also make video reviews and I included that here if you would like to watch rather than read plus I probably ramble about how it compares to other stuff too so might be interesting.
Also I make the flight videos seperate to the review video so that it's easier for you to find the parts you want to see.
I add pictures at the end of the review.
I'll be adding to this discussion if I later find anything of note like better props or if something breaks...
Please ask any questions and I'll try my best to answer them.

The uruav 85 basic version reviewed here by there is also a hd version with caddx turtle V2 1080 60fps recording for more money and more weight and the picture on the live feed is worse on that so if like me you just enjoy flying rather than filming get the basic version as it will give you a better experience.
Bought from banggood here https://bit.ly/2FybNRL ( affiliate link at no extra cost to you but helps me fund future reviews so please use this link even if you buy sometimes by else I still get a little bit of a % of anything you buy on that visit )
First up a couple of flight videos on supplied 3s 300mah and 2s 300 turnigy nano techs so you can see if it's fast enough for you.
Quite fast and good flight times of 4 minutes maybe more on 300mah.

First and most importantly , lift up your stack!
Seriously the FC sits too low and is going to break a component off by hitting the frame from either vibrations or in a crash rendering the FC dead ...
The fix is simply to turn the rubber grommets upside down so that the longer part of the grommet is between the frame and FC.

Next if you intend using the 3s lipo I strongly suggest limiting your throttle to 70%,
More than that and people have reported that FC burns out, to be honest there is so much vibration from the props at high throttle on 3s that it is unusable anyway.

I did both of the above before flying and not had a problem, I prefer 2s anyway because I have lots of those 300mah turnigy nano techs 45c already and a 4 port charger for them. On 2s 300mah it is manifested fast enough as you can see from the video bellow.

If anyone wants fpv watch or goggles in the UK I have some from xt-xinte stored in my garage ready for quick delivery.
Xt-xinte said they will sell them for $25 each posted in UK, I only have 10 goggles and 7 ( now 5 ) watches here so it's just a favour I'm doing for them clearing some stock.
