Eachine Racer 250 – One hell of a drone…

Umm… Flying a Drone – Where the hell did that come from?  Why the racer 250?

Eachine Racer 250 - a badass drone.

I used to fly gliders when I was a kid, and I’d have loved to go back to it, but it’s expensive.

Then in early 2016 I stumbled onto the videos of a fella whose handle on YouTube is CharpuFPV.  He makes videos like this one…

CharpuFPV on YouTube.

Turns out flying a drone is way cheaper and easier than flying a glider and can provide a flying experience, so well… Why not?  RC is fun, but up until now I’ve only really used radio control cars before, and even then only as a kid so it was great but I never got to try the big boy’s toys..

So yeah. That’s why!  It seems this is a particular style of flying called FPV (First person viewpoint – i.e. whatever the camera on the front of the drone sees, you see.  In real-time.  Wirelessly).

This was an awesome idea.  Something had to be done.

Anyway, mine looks like this.

My Eachine 250 Racing drone... well, the important bits anyway.

My little drone…

It’s an Eachine Racer 250 quadcopter/drone, and the kit I bought had everything in it a beginner like me needed in one package.  In no detail whatsoever, it contained:

  • Quadcopter (pre built)
  • Radio set up (Pre set up)
  • FPV Gear, and monitor (Pre installed and set up)
  • Batteries
  • Charger

And on top of that anything can be changed easily in case of breakages, upgrades, etc.

In short, a half way decent set up for RC Quadcopter FPV Racing, and a radio system you can shift to other RC models so it’s pretty versatile and a solid start.

That said, I’m a total novice so I could well be talking sh**, but whatever I put up here is just my opinion.

Anyway – here’s some links:
