Walkera is on a roll, and start the year with the new F210 mini-quad racer. while we wrap up the unbox and review, feast your eyes on a couple stills from the video. Click through for a couple thoughts and pictures.
Walkera is back with a sexy little new speedster, with a claimed top speed of 120kmph. (about 80mph) The new 320 size racer is build around a cool new trick, articulated motors, which rotate forward as you give the quad more stick, the result is that the quad body stay level and aerodynamic instead of leaning 45 deg like they normally do. this trick reduce drag and make for faster acceleration. Click through for a closer look at the new quad, and thoughts about what works and what don't.
Maybe the fastest growing RC sport right now is FPV RACING.. common we all wanna race. the bread-n-butter of racing have become virtually indestructible 250 size FPV quads. simple, powerful, and equipped with a FPV camera & transmitter.
Now Walkera have gotten onboard with their first 250 size racer. fully specked with OSD and the works. This could be big, because until now racers have been made by niche companies. Click through and see how this stacks up.
Just as you thought you knew all the Walkera copters.. boom they are at it again and this time they are aiming higher with a pro-sumer video copter. serious horse-power and a integrated camera system. Click through for pictures, sample video and Bo's opinions.
OH WOW. Just got a AMAZING prototype QUAD from Walkera, the new SCOUT X4, We have unpacked the test quad, taked it appart, flown it, and frankly, its the BEST flying Walkera QUAD EVER. Holy Stuff. Matt can't stop talking about how nice it flies. click through for the details and unbox & preview video.
The last year or so, Walkera have been launching two "me too" 300 size quads, delivering "me too" performance and experience trying to catch up to the infamous Phantom. With the new TALI it seems they have taken a step forward, and delivered a RTH video hexa aimed squarely at the more professionals in the RTF aerial video market.
Only a year ago, 2 axis brushless gimbals weighed 400grams and cost $500 - and now Walkera is selling their latest gimbal the G-2D, which is very lightweight at 134grams, and costing only $125. click through for my thoughts on this new lightweight gimbal.
It was just last summer that Walkera announced their first RTF GPS quad. the x350 was a nice little plastic quad, flew OK but was not a run-away success.
And then BAM. Walkera start 2014 with the new and improved x350pro, it is still white, still have the cool pointed nose and rocket motors on the backside. but so much have changed. Click through for the full story, video review and a build video.
