Halloa people

I'd like to start ordering parts (or an entire RTF) for a tiltrotor quadcopter.. My aim for it is a different kind of FPV-flying, but not FPV racing.. It should be FAST though :P

I have 3 options in sight now..

1. bouwen met HobbyKing Carbon 350RV frame:
HK Caron 350RV


Nice looking frame, but not very cheap..

2. bouwen met Banggood HMF SL300 frame:
BG HMF SL300


Looks a bit boring and downright ugly with the shell :P

3. Walkere Walkera Furious 320

Halloa people

I just came across a new (I'm not sure if it has allready been released yet) sub-200 FPV quad by Eachine.. Now Eachine is mostly a player in the toy-grade market, but this looks to be something that could be called hobby-grade (?)

Here is a link to this FPV quad: Eachine Assassin 180



Pro's:

Naze32 flight controller that supports CleanFlight and BetaFlight
GPS
OSD
Indicator lights
FPV HD goggles


Cons:

Proprietary battery
VTX excessive power output at 600mW
