Question

180-210 Frame Wanted, But which one?


Ok,

So I've learned that the multirotor market is very much, as 10 people get 10 different answers.

180:
- "Dude, 180 is the way to go!
- "180 is a good starting place, but you'll eventually go to 210"
- "forget one 180, it's older design everybody is going to 210"

Many people are very happy with their setups, which is awesome, I'm just trying to get opinions.

sooo....

I had an older 250 with small motors, older design.
I recently picked up some DYS 1806 and 20a ESCs (flashable)
I'm looking to get more into freestyle and racing


There are a LOT of frames out there. But I can't really decide what to get, to be honest I'm trying to spend less than $50 for a frame so if I decide to move to something else I won't be sitting on wasted money.


Opinions? Thoughts?

Ohh and PS. I'm leaning towards the X-hover 200B as it's an X-design but has a semi-H frame setup. But I haven't pulled the trigger due to cost.

I've just turned my 180 into 210.
4" props take about as much amps as 5 inch props yet give 1.3-1.5 times less thrust. And 180 build on 1806/2204/2205 motors weights only about 50g lighter than 210. But 180 has less surface and air resistance.
So 180 is an angry screaming brick, 210 is less angry more jumpy, floaty and slightly faster brick.

Just built a MRM180 and it's awesome. Pretty light frame for being 4mm.

1806's are ok on 5" props but you'll see more power with 2204's on them. On a 4" prop, there is very little difference between 1806 and 2204's. A 210 isn't drastically heavier than a 180. If it were me I'd grab a 210 so you can use either 4 or 5" props without the full size/weight of a 250. For a 180 I'd build an ultra light build around 1306's.

Thanks guys,

I ended up ordering the X-hover 200B,

The motor I have were on sale, I just didn't do enough research before I bought them. I have an older 250 and they were bigger than that so I went got it. I'll start with the 1806's and eventually upgrade all that stuff.


Too many project too little money haha.


Thanks.

I'll say this from experience. Don't start small/cheap and eventually upgrade later; you're going to spend even more money that way. Purchase proven parts from the get-go and you'll be happier and better off.
