Walkera F210 Racing Drone Flight Test Review

Walkera F210 Racing Drone Flight Test Review


This fast little racer quadcopter is very suitable for new FPV fliers. Yet, give it some pitch and watch it scream! You can even fly FPV in the dark with its IR camera. Find it here

Pros
– It’s a stable flier, yet also very fast.
– Seriously Pro Racing FC3 flight controller Flight control board is configurable. But it is a good stable flier out of the box for new FPV fliers (not beginner fliers). PID’s tweaking is not really required.
– 14.8V 1300mAh 40C 4S LiPo battery gives this quadcopter plenty of punch.
– HD camera with low light level and IR capability. Quadcopter includes IR emitters on front for night FPV flying.
– Includes Stabilized, Horizon (stabilized but without bank or pitch angle restrictions), and Full Acro modes (no stabilization, no angle restrictions). Stabilized mode is very gentle for beginner FPV fliers, yet allows very steep pitch for fast flying if desired.
– Very good control and FPV video range (hundreds of meters).
– Requires FAA registration as it is over 250 grams (It weighs 557 grams).
– Body appears to be mostly carbon fiber construction, and should be resistant to crashes.

Cons
– Somewhat pricey.
– Camera does not include recording capability. There is no mount/platform provided for optional recording camera.
– Appears to be very top heavy. Unsure of how this will handle in Acro mode?
– Very flat sliding turns in stabilized mode. Applying roll to induce banking for tightened turns seems to have little to no effect.

And here is its flight demonstration.
