How To Choose The Best FPV Racing Drone

If this is your first-time flying a racing drone, you should think about going through some extensive training before jumping into a professional race. With so many different functions and features it will take lots of practice to get a hang of flying these super-fast drones.

Once you become fully comfortable with the various components of the drone, finding the right drone to fit your needs will become a breeze.

Below is a list popular types of FPV racing drones:

  • RTF: This type of drone is excellent for beginners because it comes Ready-To-Fly or RTF right out of the box. This means no assembly is required, just plug and play. Going down this path of racing drones is not only the least expensive, but it is also the quickest method of getting race ready. The box comes with a viewer (goggles or screen depending on model), transmitter, battery, and charger. Unfortunately, due to its limitations when it comes to customization’s, it might not be the first pick for an expert flyer.
  • BNF: Another type of racing drone is the bind and fly models. These drones are unique and ready to fly like the RTF models but have a bit of a difference. The BNF racing drones comes with everything it needs to fly the drone, but the operator can make various customization’s to the components within the drone. These customization’s include battery capacity, power output, and other micro changes to give you a leg up on the competition.
  • ARF: Like the previous types of racing drones, the Almost Ready to Fly drone is already built but depending on the brand, it may come without the necessary electronics that make it roar to life. These electronics could include the transmitter, receiver, battery, etc. Read the description carefully to see what it may or may not come with before deciding. Although these drones may need some assembly, they are easily customized and recommended for experts that want to try different components on the drone.
  • KIT: If you truly want to build your own drone and have full customization over it, then the kit would be right for you. Depending what kit, some brands have all the parts needed to build a basic drone but may not have the controller or other electronics needed to fly it. One of the advantages of getting a kit is that, all kits should be compatible with each other. The kit gives you full control over drone design and gives you a chance to create something that will master the skies.
