This kit is a good beginner kit i have personally seen people using this kit for starting the hobby it is a mediator kit you may say as it has 2204 motors but as you know drone racing has achieved a new level so there is nothing such as beginner you can even start with a 4s lipo and a 4s setup.
I have tried and test this kit it is a good kit for money considering the customs and import to India you may go with it 🙂
A video about me building this kit :
#2 JUMPER 218 PRO FPV Mini Quad-copter/
Jumper 260 Racing Quadcopter
Integrated Control Board
MultiWii controller is integrated with center frame, pre-soldered XT60 connector, ESC connector, LED light connector, Infrared coder, care free and easy assembly.
Integrated pitch axis gimbal with camera, angle can be adjusted via transmitter for easily keeping a proper filming angle while doing drone racing. Soldering free design, just connect the camera and the 5.8G Tx to the given socket on integrated control board then you can start your FPV racing effortlessly.
Built-in Infrared Circuit Counter
Pioneer infrared circuit counter integrated on the main control board, just assign a code using the onboard switch then you can easily doing a drone race and record the circuit time and ranking with infrared circuit receiver (not included).
- Jumper 260 frame with integrated control board
- Picth axis gimbal with camera
- 5.8G Tx
- QM2804-2300KV motor *4
- 6*4.5″ Prop *4
So guys as you see you get a compelete package for the drone and you need not invest anything else than a lipo and lipo charger (assuming you have a radio) i feel this is the second best kit which you can buy for the amount of Rs.10000/- .. only issue with this copter is that everythng is pcb based and if you happen to crash roughly which surely you are going to do you gonna need a new one so think wisely and buy a good one .
