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.
