I'm not sure that the lunch room will ever be the same! That's where we tested the Vusion House Racer and,in spite of Hobbico's urging that we test their new quad in an indoor environment, I think it would clearly benefit from having more room to run: a gymnasium, maybe? Anyway, the aircraft and FPV system worked great, and by providing two points of contact in a collision, the “wall guards” included with the kit did a good job of keeping the aircraft in the air when it ran into a wall. And, did I mention it costs less than $200, ready-to-fly?
Our first look at the Vusion House Racer from Hobbico has just dropped over on our YouTube channel. This drone is surprisingly affordable -- at less than $200 -- but still offers a complete FPV experience with everything you need to start flying all in one box: the drone itself; a controller; an FPV receiver, screen and goggles; as well as a battery and battery charger. Check it out -- and stay tuned for our flight testing video, coming soon!
We were in the studio earlier this week, working on our unboxing and setup video about the Vusion House Racer from Hobbico. Watch for that to drop on our YouTube channel very soon... But in the meantime, check out the new lighting set up put together by the hard-working Roswell Flight Test Crew video team. To improve the lighting on the products we review, they re-configured our lighting set up: adding one big bank of lights over the camera, as you can see in these photos. Pretty cool!
