So, I’ve been beating the ever dwelling bejesus out of my customary Vusion House Racer, when low and behold, a Limited Black Edition exhibits up at my door. Initial inspection (and a fast name to my product guru, Natalie Rodrigues) outlined that this was, certainly, the identical superior machine I had grown to like and abuse, but was cloaked in all black and grey. Folks who know me are properly conscious that I don’t screw round and which means I all the time reduce to the chase. Yes, the House Racer is an incredible machine and for the RTF model, you get a hell of numerous FPV drone for not that a lot money. My one level of rivalry, although, has all the time been that the rattling factor is just too large and quick for many indoor venues. That’s not a foul factor, I simply assume the identify would possibly carry an excessive amount of denotation when prospecting for brand new consumers.
Back to the purpose at hand, the brand new Black Limited Edition House Racer is simply as cool as the unique, nevertheless it seems extra the “drone racer” half than the “large field toy” half. I’m no skilled, championship worthy FPV pilot, however I’m additionally no slouch and I can let you know that (misplaced reminiscence cells apart) I’ve by no means cartwheeled an FPV rig so violently and so usually as I’ve the 2 House Racers. The reality is, although, I’ve but to interrupt a single half except for the motor guards, which retail for lower than 2 bucks for a 4 pack! Yes, the downward going through motors suck open air when you “land” on something aside from a clean floor, however the mannequin screams to be flown open air.
The pace, agility and a number of flight modes are precisely what the physician ordered for coaching pilots, to not point out the supreme sturdiness. I, for one, firmly consider that the inherent nature of the House Racer to be flown open air is an extra promoting level to the mannequin itself. For lower than 200 smackers, you will get an RTF rig that’s tame sufficient to fly indoors, but quick sufficient to deal with any outside course you bestow upon it. The Limited Black version solely takes the cool issue a step or two additional, by giving the House Racer a complete new aesthetic worth. Worried about planting your darker, new House Racer right into a bush outdoors and never with the ability to discover it? Simply flip the transmitter off and observe the beeps (like I did within the video).
