Platform Option 1 – Buy it and Fly it

The QAV210 is a great frame with flying characteristics that support both beginner pilots and advanced pilots. It can be flown with a smaller battery and HD camera mounted for sharing your flights and races. It is also large enough that it makes a great candidate for a first build or self repair. Uses commercial off-the-shelf-parts.

Platform Option 2 – Buy it and Fly it

The Vortex 250 Pro is an improved and race-ready version of its larger counterpart, the Vortex 280. It is worth mentioning that parts are proprietary, however the benefit is a simplified configuration.
