« on: August 11, 2017, 14:10:06 »
Hi,

I am new here and so far I been flying tiny whoop. Now I want to build my first 250 and so I would like to hear your opinion on this build:

Lumenier QAV-R FPV Racing Quadcopter Frame (5" Arms)

DYS F4 Pro Flight Controller With OSD

DYS XSD 30A V2 BLHeli_S Multirotor 3-6S ESC

Lumenier RX2206-11 2350Kv Brushless Motor (2-4S)

FrSky X4R-SB EU LBT 3/16CH Receiver with SBUS, CPPM and Telemetry

Runcam Swift Rotor Riot Special Edition CCD 600TVL Camera

TBS Triumph 5.8GHz Antenna RHCP (SMA) (2 Pack)

Now not sure if to take:

http://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/tbs-unify-pro-5g8-hv-58ghz-mini-fpv-transmitter-race-sma

or

http://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/immersionrc-tramp-hv-58ghz-video-transmitter-sma

what mW would you recommend for free style? and if I want to race in a future isn';t it better to have 25/200mW?

HQProp 5x4x3 Glass Fibre Composite Tri-Blade Propellers (2x CW + 2x CCW)

HobbyRC Race Spec 1400mAh 4S 95C-190C LiPo Battery


So far I have FrSKY Taranis and Fatshark Dominator V3 with Fat Shark 5.8Ghz 32ch Race Band Receiver



Thanks for all suggestions

Hi,

I am new here and so far I been flying tiny whoop. Now I want to build my first 250 and so I would like to hear your opinion on this build:
Hi, ok assuming this is for acro/freestyle
Let';s poke it about a bit
Quote
Lumenier QAV-R FPV Racing Quadcopter Frame (5" Arms)
Good solid frame, lumenier are always a little pricey.
No real issues with it though other than price, I would probably suggest you consider a qav210 charpu edition, blindingly good box frame
Quote
DYS F4 Pro Flight Controller With OSD

Reasonable, not overly happy about combined fc/osd and pdb boards, but a reasonable choice
Quote
DYS XSD 30A V2 BLHeli_S Multirotor 3-6S ESC
Way overkill
If you are going with blheli_s get spedix es25, cheaper and as good or better
Consider blheli_32 as it is the next generation
Littlebee summer escs
Wraith32
Both good examples
Quote
Lumenier RX2206-11 2350Kv Brushless Motor (2-4S)
Hmm ledgendry acro motors, however most lumenier I have had recently have some verticle play, it is with tolerance but it is enough to make prop wash a nightmare to tune out

Recomend you consider either
Brother hobby returner r4 2206
Or
T-motor f40 pro
Both better motors
Quote
FrSky X4R-SB EU LBT 3/16CH Receiver with SBUS, CPPM and Telemetry
Nowerdays I use xm+, smaller lighter and cheaper but if you want telemetry in the radio use an xsr
Quote
Runcam Swift Rotor Riot Special Edition CCD 600TVL Camera
Honestly? It is a hs1177 with a gopro 2 lense in it
Up to you though

Now not sure if to take:

or

http://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/immersionrc-tramp-hv-58ghz-video-transmitter-sma
Both have their followers, me I use the tbs on all my builds, but doesn';t make much difference one way or another

Legally in the uk you have to use 25mw

HQProp 5x4x3 Glass Fibre Composite Tri-Blade Propellers (2x CW + 2x CCW)
Cool although I would consider the 5x4.3x3, throttle curve is more linear, or gemfan flash for absolutely locked in
