Review (ip) of HOBBYMATE ASTEROID 3" MINI FPV RACING DRONE (BNF or KIT)


Review (ip) of HOBBYMATE ASTEROID 3" MINI FPV RACING DRONE (BNF or KIT)

My new 3" quad from Hobbymate came and it looks super cool and quality build. I got BNF version, build is super clean and all solder joints are nicely done. Details are in picture gallery.




HOBBYMATE FPV carbon fiber racing drone is a 3-inch quad built to go fast with load of power. Equipped with SmartAudio, which means it’ll be easier for a pilot to change settings on the video transmitter.



Parameters:
  • Wheelbase: 145mm
  • Frame weight: 35g
  • Arm thickness: 4mm
  • Top plate thickness: 2mm
  • Flight control mounting holes size: 20*20mm
  • Supported Motor:13xx / 14xx / 15xx
  • Supported propeller: Max 3 inch
  • Weight wo props:




  • Weight w Gemfan 3035 props:






Configuration and Package:
  • Frame * 1PC
  • SucceX F4 mini 35A ESC VTX Flight Tower Stack w/ antenna * 1 PC
  • HOBBYMATE Racing Edition 1505+ 4300Kv / 2900Kv (Optional) * 4PC
  • Caddx Eos2 Micro Camera * 1PC
  • XT30 male Plug for 4in1 ESC connection to battery * 1PC
  • TPU 3D Print UFL Antenna Mount * 1PC
  • Panasonic Matsushita 35v680uf capacitors * 2PC



Notice from sellers web:
1) Kit version is not assembled, frame, motors *4, Mini F4 stack w/ vtx, antenna, caddx eos2 camera, standoffs, motors screws included
2) No props included, 3-4" recommended
3) This mini F4 stack controller does not has built in receiver signal inverter, so frsky r-xsr receiver will not enable the lua script or telemetry function, it does work though.



Stay tuned for test flights...

Here is also great manual - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Br...b8GLWh0lvHHoNr

Sweet....I bought the kit version with 2900kv motors. Just got 3 x 6s550 packs today from Piroflip here in the US. Not too many vendors selling packs of that size.
