250 FPV Quads - spares and where to buy from?


#1

Hi all,

After hours to trolling the net I’m starting to lose hope. Ive managed to kill a flight controller (SP Racing F3) clone version, came with the RTF drone!

I can’t seem to find a retailer that sells genuine Cleanflight/BetaFight FC’s or any flight controllers for that matter in the uk, is there anywhere?

Ebay and Amazon seem to sell a lot of clone boards!

Cheers
Mark.

Have you had a look here?

Dont forget to use exclusive GADC discount.

Most of my stuff came from Amazon, quadcopters and banggood.


#3

To name some of the companies I use most often

HobbyRC
Makeitbuildit
Quadcopters.co.uk
Airjacker
Dronebit

I would also recommend the matek boards. Good solid bits of kit!

I’ve used a clone spracing board and they’re no different really. Its Still working now and it’s been in for a year.

Unmanned tech sell legit ones i think.
My go to is usually quadcoptersuk But i don’t think they sell this board.


#5

I wouldn’t buy a board that’s not at least an f4 these days and tbh they are heading the way of the dinosaur betaflight 3.5 runs on an f3 but they had to strip features to get it to fit.

Get an f7 and know that your good for the next 12 months

As to board recommendations

Matek f722
Holybro f7
Are what my quads use

Depends if he wants to just straight swap but I would recommend a f4 upgrade if you’ve got the knowledge.
I just wanted a straight swap in my wizard 220. I’ve got a F4 for a new build though


#7

F4’s won’t support all the features in betaflight by the end of the year. Seriously just spend the extra few pounds and ge the f7

/edit

Less than £25 :slight_smile:

Actually quite keen on that f7. I want to move away from the wizard and get a better 5" frame. Mostly for freestyle. Any frames you recommend? Charmeleon ti is my choice at the moment but I feel like it’s the go to for everyone.

The armattan is a great frame but expensive… take a look at

Sabotagerc (sister company to armattan same carbon, same designers etc)
