$145 Eachine Racer 250 FPV Drone is a sky high bargain


eachine racer 250

Quadcopters and drones come in all shapes and sizes. From pocket sized toys, to huge aerial photography units. The Eachine Racer 250 is neither, it is a lightweight, agile and extremely fast racer.

If you haven’t already seen or heard of quadcopter racing then you need to stop what you are doing and head over to YouTube right away. Wait scratch that I’ll just embed a video below.

What you just saw were small, fast and amazingly agile drones racing through a derelict building. The speed of these racers is so intense that a FPV camera is mounted to the front so racers can use a display or even special VR goggle to navigate through even the most difficult of courses.

For those of you wanting to get in to the racing scene the new Eachine Racer 250 represents amazing value for money. The basic kit costs just $145.00 and includes a plastic and carbon frame, motors, camera and battery. All you need to add is the receiver and transmitter.

For those of you who are interested in recreating your favourite aerial chase moments with one of these Eachine Racers, keep in mind that these are extremely fast and potentially dangerous pieces of hardware. I would suggest starting out with something a little more tame before trying to tame this beast.

    Its basically a semi raw kit for making yiur own drone – i tried to do it from scratch 1 year ago – it Was fun and not so expensive – but the dji phantom 3 impresses me to this day – especially for the price – features build software and power…
