Competition Spec 4 cell Racing Drone Build

February 24, 2016 jordan No comments exist

This is a build proposal for a 210mm sized, 4 cell racing quadcopter. Requiring a combination of lightweight, a well-balanced setup and insane power. The setup would run a F3 Naze32 flight controller and a combined OSD (on screen display) and power distribution for a very tidy and clean setup. Unfortunately I don’t have the money laying around to build it, maybe one day.

The components are as follows:


Lisam LS-210 210mm Carbon Fiber Frame Kit $34.42


From <>

Similar to the QAV250 but smaller, has 3mm 3K carbon fibre combined fuselage and arms for great strength, angled FPV camera mount, optional Gopro mount and great price.



Tilt XiaoYi Gopro 808#16 Camera Gimble Mount PTZ For FPV QAV180 QAV210 $22.61

Angled gimbal mount, a bit pricey for what it is but is well designed as very useful



MXK Power Distribution Board PDB with OSD BEC $28.44

Another pricey component but worth it, feature packed, 5v and 12v 3A BEC output, power distribution for ESCs and inbuilt OSD (onscreen display). Standard 36x36mm board size to fit under a Naze32 board on the frame, make the build clutter free with a lot less messy wires.

This is the newest F3 Naze32 on the banggood market, this is the deluxe version with barometer and compass which is not necessary but I’m interested to try it, the board has heaps of JST-SH plugs making the setup easy and tidy. A very well setup board.
