    What does it mean by "racing"? I don't see very many specs (either things like max speed, or even weight and payload).

  • 9zi7mnmg normal
    GroupGets

    @thomas, the zmr250 is a part of the 250 size class of racing quadcopters. 250 is 250mm measured diagonally from the center of each propeller. Here is an example of some racing done with similar quadcopters : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQuEgVNAQhE . My quadcopter which is very similar to this one weighs about 461 grams, so it should be around there. The max speed is approximately 50-60 miles per hour, and the maximum payload is approximately 250grams.

    Thanks! A very high performance quad.
    Will there also be a list or sources for spare parts?
    Also, the remote control range?

  • 9zi7mnmg normal
    GroupGets

    Yes it is! The range can be very far, but there are a lot of variables so giving an exact number is difficult. Most of the parts are listed on the campaign, but I will update the campaign with the rest of the parts in the next few days.

    So I'm still new to this GroupGets, what the campaign funding exactly? I'm getting into RC Quadcopters and have a few already and could use a racing one before I build my own. Basically we pay for this quad, it gets shipped and funds you campaign correct? What's the campaign geared for? Just those that want something like this but can't build one due to time or other reasons?

    Hi AAChaoshand, Once you join the campaign and the campaign reaches its goal we will charge your card and then ship out the quadcopter and installed accessories if you added one. As you said the campaign is geared for people that may not have the time or possibly expertise to build one. All of the parts and quadcopters are tested and tuned before they are shipped, and have gone through many iterations to get the quadcopter set-up as nicely as possible.

    That's great! Please spread the word so we can get this campaign to its goal.

    Great thanks, the original one in the email didn't work but this one does! I was going to get a FatShark Dominator V2 to go with the FPV system, is the one installed compatible ? I haven't looked at the brand on the quad itself yet and the specs don't say which transmitter brand they used.

  • 9zi7mnmg normal
    GroupGets

    Sorry about that. The 200mw installed Video Transmitter is compatible with all brands. To change frequencies there is switch on the side of the Transmitter. Pressing it once will jump to next frequency. And pressing and holding for 2 seconds will change frequency band. There are 4 bands and each has 8 frequencies.
