Walkera Furious F215 - Official and for Owners


The Walkera Furious 215 is the latest ready-to-fly racing drone quadcopter to release March 2017. The fuselage wheelbase is 215mm, designed around the F3 Flight Controller with rapid response speed, thus providing pilots a first-class flight experience. If you are into racing and freestyle aerobatic flying, this may be for you. Airframe design is modern, is simple, lightweight fuselage but with a rugged crash structure. Pilots can upgrade and replace all key components. With the high-performance brushless motors, we decide to combine it with 5040 clover propellers and a 4S 60c LiPo, to give you that adrenaline rush!

Furious 215 The RTF Racer of thrilling perfection (3 min 41 sec)


Multiple reinforcements
The whole body will use high resistance carbon fiber materials, the thickness of arms will be 4mm which enable the quadcopter to be stronger and more crash-resistant . The removable arms make maintenance much easier and lowers your cost of maintenance. Another "Mad Max design", the head uses curved carbon fiber to protect the camera and effectively disperse the impact force. Bottom plate provides redundancy for high impact reinforcements. The upper plate is separated from the compact battery mounting plate, which greatly reduces the chance of the upper plate breaking during inverted collision.

Integration
The Power Distribution Board (PDB) is cut to precision to the shape of the chassis floor. Integrated with On Screen Display (OSD), there is a OSD connector at the bottom of the board to adjust the parameters.

Features
  • ESC supporting oneshot 125/oneshot42, high-performance 2500KV brushless motor combined with 5040 5” propeller and 4S power battery.
  • Airframe made of high strength carbon fiber, robust arm at 4mm thickness; 4 independent arms achieve lower maintenance cost
  • Onboard active beeper and integrated OSD, provided with OSD tuning connector at its bottom for the purpose of tuning.
  • 600TVL performs under the lowlight and backlight surrounding. Equipped with FOV-130°wide-angle lens of focus-2.5mm. High performance video transmission system supports 600mW (at maximum) power switching (FCC version), estimated transmission distance of 1.5 kilometers.
  • F3 flight controller for convenient upgrading and tuning
  • Battery: 14.8V 1300mAh 60C 4S LiPo

If you have an interest, if you want to receive one to contribute to this rcgroup thread (this page), anywhere in the world, please comment below
1. your review experiences
2. just provide links to your channel or publication, so as not to crowd it with unrelated videos
.

The usual, the selection committee looks for folks that can provide constructive feedback in video, good humor and write-ups (like what we all like.. real people, at your neat hometown setting, fun) for this rcgroup thread itself. We already send samples to regular reviewers, but folks who know me and the community work I do, will identify with me that I like to extend this to new/undiscovered talents with a passion in this hobby. Do keep in mind this is a racer, so it is not about aerial filming, a demo race or free style aerobatics is expected. When selected, we will send you a link to place your free order at www.walkera.rocks our USA warehouse online store. Since this drone is new, we will pull samples from production and it will be shipped directly from Walkera factory.

I would like to test this one, if possible. My main strength, I feel, lies in write up, video showing pure flight performance, and I try to do a thourough analysis of the product.

Here's my YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCev...iwsjkgf45OGwOQ

And a few random examples of some reviews I made:

I would like to test the 215


I would like the opportunity to test the 215! I already own the rodeo 110 and have done a few videos on it. I just purchased the runner 250 fpv kit from gear best yesterday. It shipped out today so I plan on doing an unboxing and review sometime next week on that one.

Me too!


I'd like an opportunity to start reviewing FPV racing gear!

I've loved Walkera stuff since I got my Devo7e, and this would be an awesome first review. I know other people in this thread might have better chances of being selected as they already have review experience (Great rodeo 110 review and tips Merch!), but hey, it doesn't hurt to try!
I've seen some great reviews for the Rodeo 110 come out recently, but was a little disappointed that some of the info wasn't really all correct (The VTX is 40ch with 2 power settings, not 8!). I'd like to see if I can do better, and contribute to the growth of Walkera here in the states

FLYING life Review


I would definitely like to do a review of the Walkera. I have done reviews of walkera products before and a large portion of my subscribes are walkera fans. I was the first to do a review on the new Rodeo 110 and also the first to do a review of the rodeo 150. I have also covered the f210. I would love to add this to the channel. Thanks for consideration .
