One of our members, Eugene is asking advice on what ready built 5" quad he ought to get.
He currently flies ready-built toy-hobby craft from the likes of Banggood etc. We were talking at the field the other day and suggesting for the amount of money he was spending on these he would be better off getting a more robust 5" (he does already have a DJI Mini and way back in his youth he flew heli’s for a while)
He’ll need to get a ‘proper’ TX so I’m suggesting a ZORRO or Jumper T-Lite running ELRS, cheap option for decent range.
There’s plenty of ready-builts but not many in stock,
HobbyRC do have an iFlight Titan XL5 (4S) in stock ATM.
I don’t have much experience with ready-builts but I know you guys do, so any advice would be really appreciated, maybe you’ve even got an old one that is up for sale ?
I can help him with an RX and setting it up, also thinking the EV800DM box goggles would suit him.
Yeah, UnmannedTech have that as well… the only 5" they have. They have 4S and 6S version.
YourFPV have the GEPRC Mark 5, 6S, which I remember JB recommending. This is Analog and has ELRS, so may be ideal. Edit: ELRS out of stock, the have TBS CRSF though… easy enough to change RX if needed.
They also have the Diatone Roma F5, which JB also recommends…I have the Diatone F4 which I love to bits. (They only have DJI though)
