Introduction: Remote Control Superfast 250 FPV Drone
Here's what you could do with a 250 FPV racing quadcopter.
- You can fly almost everywhere!
- Not only can you hover at one specific spot, but you can also fly really, really fast.
- You crashed it? No worries, racing quadcopter frames are durable enough to handle most crashes.
- You can fly with cameras, and record your flights. Not to mention FPV, that makes you able to fly far away by using a videolink to preview live on the ground!
- You can fly at any time! Well, maybe not when the rain is pouring down, but due the small size and low weight, a racing quadcopter handles wind extremely well.
- Spy.....No, don't do that.
The list is long, but to summarize, a racing quadcopter is a lot of fun! It's today very approachable with "Ready-to-Fly" models. Like this one: http://www.helipal.com/storm-racing-drone-rtf-type...
