An FPV drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle with a camera that sends video to a headset, mobile device or other display devices. Drone racing is gathering popularity as a hobby among many people. So it is becoming a serious sport in some parts of the world. A FRV racing drone may be controlled remotely or programmed to fly through a pre-planned flight plan autonomously. It is designed to compete in first person view racing events held in most cities worldwide as opposed to camera drones which are designed to capture quality video and photos and such they fly low and slow.
The Eachine Wizard X220 is a fast and nimble racing drone. It is extremely impressive and a good entry-level drone. It is so much fun to fly, and there is a lot of support on Youtube for setting up the quad up. Its common specifications include a wheelbase of 220mm, a GMachine arm that is 4mm carbon fibre which is ultra light, a flying time of 12 minutes, a weight of 484g with batteries and a take-off weight of 535 g. The X frame design lowers the weight of the drone and help in distributing the weight evenly which improves the drones stability. There is also a camera and video transmitter.
The FPV racing drone model ( Eachine Wizard X220) has a variety of features that ensure the best experience. It is compatible with a maximum 5-inch propeller with three blades. These provide better balance and stability by creating more thrust allowing the drone to turn, stop and lift with more ease even in rough weather conditions.
