Storm Racing Drone Type-A sold by HeliPal.com


I wanted to see if anyone here on RC Groups had heard anything about the Storm Racing Drone Type-A sold by HeliPal.com? I've scoured the internet through multiple Google searches and I cannot find anything about it or any reviews outside what the HeliPal.com site has to offer. I'd anyone has information on how this quad flies, stable hover, GPS functionality, FPV quality, camera quality, build quality, electrical component quality, etc. I'd appreciate it.

Thank you!

The frame is the Emax 250 Pro, although it looks like they omit the anti vibration camera mount. It's most likely the 2204 Bundle Kit: http://www.emaxmodel.com/views.asp?hw_id=1536

We sell the bundle packaged with our Acro boards instead of the CC3D

I received the Storm racing drone today from Helipal. I can' t believe how fast I received it. I ordered it on Saturday and got it today, Wednesday (4 days). Shipping was a little steep, but I see why now, LOL. Here is a picture of everything in the box. It was suppose to come with a couple extra sets of spare props. I've already sent helipal an email on this issue. Next is to charge it up and get her in the air. Only thing I added was volt alarm. More to come.

Maiden successful. I just turned on the radio, plugged up the quad, and armed it. It hovers awesome. Now to setup the FPV monitor with it and I'm ready to go. I also have a Mobius camera on the way and I've already picked up a couple extra Lipos. Can't wait to get some more time on this thing. Videos to come, stay tuned.

Awesome. They really do tuned it before shipping!

Could you hook up your quad to open pilot and export out the settings? It will be a good starting point for me when I build my own 250 quad with local parts?

Guys, did a couple more quick test flights. My 9 year old video taped it, so it's not the best. Again, very impressed. I will get more video soon.

New here. Have questions about Storm Racing Drone.


Hi all. I'm new to this blog thing;
I have the same questions as Darth does. In addition I am curious of the flight time, transmitter/receiver distance and battery options for the Storm Racing Drone.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
My experience has been all visual with a Walkera model, Mode 2 and line of sight. I'm just getting familiar with FPV flying.
