The Fatshark 101 Combo Starter Kit

A Beginner Combo From One of the Biggest Names in the Industry

Coming from the biggest name in FPV goggles on the planet, Fatshark has just announced a beginner-friendly drone kit that comes ready to fly for under $250. The 101 kit includes a Shark drone with USB chargeable batteries, a transmitter, and Recon goggles. There isn't much info on the specs of the Shark drone, so chances are it's a somewhat tame machine, designed to teach new and budding quad pilots all about flying under the hood. Additionally, a complimentary copy of Drone Racing League's Simulator is included to help learn the basics before you fly.

The 101 Kit Includes:

  • Shark Quad
  • Recon FPV goggles + headstrap and antenna
  • Fat Shark Radio
  • Two batteries + USB charger
  • Two spare motors + four spare propellers
  • Quick start guide
  • Two gates + gate holders
  • Lens cloth
  • Radio USB cable

Wow fatshark really crapped the bed on this one........a brushed quad with no adjustable fpv cam angle at this price point???? And from one of the biggest names in fpv no less. And then to try and sell it as a rig to learn fpv on lol, more like a lesson in how to waste money.

You may get a warning for that

There's not one violation of site rules in that post but if reporting it would make someone with sensitive emotional issues day just a little better they are highly encouraged to do so

The promotional video was really really bad. I mean come on "little lady" learn to fly your FPV quad out on the dock and then come race with the "big boys". Who are they targeting in this video. Just makes no sense to me. Maybe the main character as a young boy and then joining in with some adults and teens for some racing action. The video really turned me off on this.

I know I'm in the minority, but I like it.

I don't have any FatShark stuff, but for some reason I really like the look of the drone itself. I know it's silly, but I just like it.

My only FPV experience with goggles is with the Tactic goggles that the monitor can go in or be on its own, and it's got pretty poor resolution, so I imagine this FatShark set of goggles is probably superior.

I feel that the price is quite steep, though.

Have y'all seen the Eachine bundle tiny whoop-style bushed quad, goggles, and tx for $65-80? Best beginner package. Expect more at that price point from Fatshark, no less.

Eachine doesn't have fan-boys with it, so hence the price is less

$250 for a toy-grade quad.

Nice.

What's wrong with you guys? Fatshark has the right idea!

Everyone needs to exit their RCGroups bubble and realize 95% of the market has no idea what any of this stuff is. They need major handholding and something that is quite tame to start flying. What did you think the beginner was going to need? OSD? Maybe Smart audio and some soldering pads?
Brushless power with some DSHOT escs???

Hahah. No they don't need any innovation: they need stable and tame angle mode.

Just like your first quad, this one will die quickly. It would die a lot quicker with brushless 2s power, etc....

I thought the commercial was decent. I mean, there's no secret race going on in an awesome waterfront warehouse and no hot girls are interested in flying drones with you. Sorry
However, the point of the commercial is to create a fantasy where you do all of that.
