First FPV Quad Purchase
« on: April 20, 2017, 09:51:24 PM »
On Easter Monday, I took my Blade 230S to the local high school.  It was my first outing in around 6 months and I felt like a novice all over again :(  On the final flight I had an observer.

After landing and packing up we got chatting.  He showed me his DJI Mavic Pro and asked if I wanted to fly it :)

Wow! It was so stable it shocked me.  With time it would probably be boring to fly, but I guess it is really targeted to cinematographers not hobby pilots.

Anyway, now I'm keen to make my first quad purchase and want to go down the FPV route :)

Which would be the better choice - the Blade Nano QX FPV 2 or the Blade Inductrix FPV or something else?

Most of my flying would be indoors or outside under cover.

Thanks.
Ian B.

Have a look at what's called a Tiny Whoop.

The batteries last for a longer flight time that the inductrix.

Cheers Dave.

Hey Pete, not sure mate. The guys I flew with here have and preferred them over the inductrix, but I can find out and get back to you.

Both the Inductrix and Nano Qx fly well and are very stable.

Cheers Dave.

I have the Inductrix already for my son but a motor has burnt out in a very short time and Modelflight want $30 delivered for just one motor so I'm looking for other options.

My inductrix did the same, as the kids used it, but I had a spare Nano QX and pinched a motor of off that. It doesn't take much for a motor to burn out, even a it of hair wound around it.

Is it just 1 motor you lost? and which point of the quad?

Yeah only one so far, not sure I would have have to check when I get home from work on the point.

You can get a Frysky and Spektrum version and should be able to bind to either of those tx's.

Cheers Dave.
