HobbyKing FPV250 Quad Copter A Mini Sized FPV Multi-Rotor (kit)

Introducing the HobbyKing FPV250 quad copter, a mini sized quad copter with big FPV capability. 

The FPV250 is a mini sized FPV quad copter measuring in at a mere 250mm. This durable, inexpensive FPV multi-rotor platform is perfect for FPV racing or obstacle course flying at your local field. 

The glass filled nylon one-piece frame is extremely durable, giving you the confidence to go FPV barnstorming and yet only weighs 110 grams. The front platform is designed to handle up to a 2 servo pan and tilt camera setup and the rear platform supports the video transmitter, to keep it all nice and balanced. The FPV250 has a center bay large enough for most popular flight controllers and includes a top crash cage for protection. There are four integrated strap slots on the bottom to securely hold the battery in place for high G maneuvering. The FPV250 motor mounts can handle anything from a 1506 to 2208 motor and the vented arms provide plenty of cooling for your 7~12A ESCs. 

The HobbyKing FPV250 is a budget minded FPV basher, ready for daredevil obstacles or Spec Class FPV racing. It’s time to start practicing your FPV skills, race season is getting ready to start!

i cracht it one time realy hard prop explode so it came down noting hapend but dont clue the legs use ziptiy

Yeah these are a great little 250 sized racing quad frames to practice on,i've had a couple from the first time they came out and it's still going strong,i used a tiny amount of hot glue on my LG and that seemed to work ok for me,but i did have to scuff up the legs before adding the glue,that way it has something better to stick to,i highly recommend this frame to anyone who want to build there own racing quad and practice with it,you will be hard pushed to break this one,i've had loads of crashes and again it's still going strong. :-)

Looking for a cheap frame that I won't feel bad about banging around and stuff. Is this frame as durable as it sounds? And where does the power distribution board go? silly question perhaps, but i'm trying to visualise this thing. In the square section in the centre?
 Rick3r 36 points
they are fairly hard, ive hit things, dropped on top of them and had an unfortuate dog related incident, the only weak point ive found is the motor mounts, if you get a motor that doesnt need to used the adapter plates you'll be away. but even if you do either a liberal application of CA or plastic weld it back togeather

As above to my comment to Freek. :-)

would it be a good idea to run 2300KV motors with the 5x3 three blade props for this frame? why/why not? suggestions?
 Matey 341 points
Yes, you can put 5x3 three blade props on it. You'll get more lift, but your ESC's will have to work a bit harder, becouse there will be more amperage draw. If your ESC's can handle it, than it will be no problem. And your flight time will probably be a bit shorter. Depends how much you push your quad.
 Rick3r 36 points
im using this frame with 2300kv DYS 1806 motors and 2 blade props, and its in the air with approx 30% throttle, so unless your racing id stick with 2 blades, you can get a longer flight time(As Matey suggests)

Ok. So you have to go way down on your battery. A 1500mah 3s is the maximum power for this small quad. I dont think this quad is made for a KK-mini, you can for sure fit it in there but its made for original big KK boards and that size, and they fit very well. If you want like 200 times better video, go for a pair of cloverleaf antennas for your FPV setup, the linear antennas that comes with it aint that good. You might also want to buy a battery for your goggles and video-receiver, a 2200 or that 3000mah battery in your text will do fine. ALOT of props, you will regret not buying alot of props. Also a rechargable battery for your transmitter (Radio) is nice. Than you need a charger for your flightbatteries and FPV-receiver battery. A lipo-tester is always good to buy.

I have one of these and the kk mini fits in there just fine, infact I originally had the kk2.1 HC and it didn't fit properly, also if you use the Quattro I believe you have to move some pins around, as the controller is powered up by the motor 1 signal but the Quattro uses motor 3 to power up

Received my 3 kits the other day. quality is very good!! Each kit came packed in a large flat padded envelope. All the parts were included as advertised. Parts are packed and numbered 1-5 in a small plastic bag, I'm in the process of building the first kit with recommended 1704-1900kv motors which i also purchased with this order. PLEASE NOTE** you will need M2x6 screws and Flat M2 Washers if you plan to install the 1704 motors directly to the frame. If you use the aluminum motor mount plates that come with the 1704 motors you will not be able to use the M3 bolts that come with this kit because they are too short. You will need to purchase at least 16 M3x8 hex screws AND 16 nuts or locknuts to secure them to the frame's motor mount. The 2nd kit i will install zmr2400 kv motors this one will require modification of each motor mount to allow the holes to line up correctly. Zmr motors will also require 16 M2X6 screws and flat washers because it is not configured with 16x19 bolt pattern like most motors. I wish i purchased the sunnysky 2300kv motors insteadthat one has 16x19 motor mounts. Anyways, this is an excellent kit for the price. 5 stars all the way!! Flight video coming soon. Link to unboxing video... flight footage coming soon. . .

Nice frame for a small quad that can built light and smaller than F330 frame with Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 2822-1275 motors and carbon or SF 8045 props (which has been my favorite small quad so far). Too bad that Multistar 1704 motors are out of stock. My Afro 12A ESCs are already waiting (newest versios come with 2mm bullets and thus are plug-and-play with Multistar 1704)

I ordered 2 frames, because it's soooo cheap! Unfortunately cheap price makes the whole frame in low quality - plastic is fragile/crusty. When I screw in the the protective plate on top, all the 4 screws break down! Also, the "mounting holes" doesn't fit to different FC then 45x45. I use MWC SE, so I must glue the FC. When you use FC smaller then 45x45 (MWC SE is 35x35) with straight pins, you need to glue FC directly on bottom of the controler bay - power distribution board FC doesn't fit. Of course, you can fly without protective plate. I use c20 motors - they fit (only 2 screws). Unfortunately, ZMR-1704 doesn't fit. For c20 motors, you need longer M2.5 screws (about 6-8 mm long)

Look, for $10 you can't complain. this body will take a fair amount of punishment, but it doesnt really come suited to mount a kk board, as there is no holes at all, so you will need to drill those out (really HK, cmon..) the feet need to be superglued on, which is pretty bogus, and they DO NOT come with all the screws in the instructions. It came with 4 puny screws for the canopy, it doesnt come with the motor screws as advertised. But for 10 bucks, I couldnt even be bothered complaining and waiting 2 weeks for support.

After some test flights and some small crashes I think this is a really good frame. It is cheap, but strong and not to heavy. I use it in combination with c20-1550kv motors and 6 inch triblade props. When you hookup a 3 cell lipo you can get a thrust weight ratio of 3.5 on 1 (ACRO). All details on my build are available on:
