How to get FPV DRONE RACING for under $300! Parts +Full setup.



How to get into drone racing for under $300. A complete guide on what to buy? How to set it up? and how to get drone FPV racing with the best gear you can get for under $300. This kit is the real deal and unlike most of the other cheap stuff out there this is actually going to last, be reliable, have bucket loads of speed and most importantly a heaps of fun. This kit includes a quad, radio, fpv goggles, charger, and battery. Everything you need to get up and drone racing. LINKS BELOW

Eachine Wizard ARF racing quad–
FlySky 1a6 Radio Receiver combo –
Kylin FPV vision goggles –
(UPDATE 16th of Janurary) – A bit more $$$ but I just tried these goggles and they are AMAZING
4s lipo battery – if not working try this one
new – battery because other sold out
Battery Charger –

Seems the batteries are sold out, you could also use these – better quality but a few $ more

Instead of the kylin goggles you can also get the cheaper Ev800s but I recommend the Kylins for the few extra $$.

At the time of making this video it totalled up to about $290ish. But I understand that people may be watching this video even though the prices have changed. But the point is that this is the best kit you can get for the money. You CANT get into the fpv racing hobby with anything less and anyone who tell’s you otherwise is either misinformed or doesn’t know what they are missing. I have reviewed a TON of quads and FPV gear and shopped around and if you are wanting to get into the hobby this is ABSOLUTE CHEAPEST you can do it without wasting your money on Junk.

So with that said and done. WELCOME TO THE HOBBY. You are going to love it and it is a lot of fun.

RECOMMENDED UPGRADES in the future are

– More batteries – like 10 – 20 more because you won’t want to stop.
– Frsky taranis radio
– Fatshark FPV goggles (dominator or attitude series).

    As a cautious person getting into this hobby. I have looked for flaws in this build in lots of forums and comments. I cant find anything better then this. thank you for such a great bang for buck build.

    hi I just purchased this and bonded my remote and tried too plug it into the computer and launch Betaflight and the drone won't connect but I thought in the video you said you can fly it without plugin it into the computer so I plugged in the battery antenna on and turnted the remote on an tried pushed the throttle up nothing happened just wondering what I'm missing

    Gdaaaay Stew, love the channel and the videos and because of this I have just purchased this set up from the links you provided. I'm in Ireland so delivery was 5-25 days which I didn't mind at all…………..BUT………….the Charsoon balance charger is being shipped with the wrong DC input and is killing lipos. Not trying to ruin the video just letting you and others know that it is an issue. I'm now going to get the Turnigy Accucel-6 10A charger and a new set of lipos. Hope this info helps and "Happy Flying" 🙂

    How does this receiver/radio stuff work. How do you sink a remote to a quad and so on. Also I’m thinking of doing your $100 build as a first. Do you think all of this together but replacing the wizard with the build is a good plan?

    Can this setup also transmit audio, so I can hear the quad in my earbud? Thank you for this vid!

    My only problem is, your drone is completely not the drone from the 99$ build with or without upgrades. You are throwing me off man with setting things up… I'm completely new and had to do more research online to understand so much you fail to mention, and I'm talking about absolute basics. The upgraded fc does not work for beta flight, it's responding to clean flight for me so you showing me set up in beta just messes with me. Second I had to boot my fc, which thanks again for "informing" me on how to do that. That's the hardest thing to understand you know? How do I know I'm doing it right at all? I may have screwed up my fc. The one you used in the 99$ build upgrade version. Instead of making big hype on the product. Be way more I'm formal and don't skip stuff..

    Where can I get more of the screws used to mount the motors to the frame? A single one of my screws refuses to go in.

    I have bought the Kylin FPV vision goggles but what camera would anyone suggest for this? Seen a lot of people saying they need to match in fov / ratio so you are not looking at zoomed in pictures etc. Cheers

    Hey Stew, thinking about maybe updating this video? Or is it still viable

    Is there any way that you could get it to stream to your phone partly because it’s illegal to fly with a vr head set on your head in some states.

    If I already have a Spektrum DX6i, then would I just replace the receiver in this build with a 6 channel spektrum rx?

    My question is this. If you dont have anyone to fly against,and you are just thrashing around,how does that count as racing? Sadly,there is no one in my area that even race drones. I checked with the local RC clubs,no one races. Hummm. I talked to a couple guys but they are more into photography, not racing. I guess mabe it depends on the area you live in huh?

    Hey UAVfutures! I was wondering if you would add, edit or change anything in this build? I plan on picking this up fairly soon! = ) Thanks for all the great work you do!

    I just purchased the equipment! Cannot wait to get this going and fly my first drone. Thanks for the tips and get started guide. Will post a follow up on how it all goes. Thanks again

    I want to be able to record with this racer, now do I have to get goggles with DVR to do that? And If so, can I just pick up an Eachine EV800D and it work properly?

    I binded the receiver (The red LED stays lit and doesn't blink) but when I go into betaflight the Roll, Pitch, Yaw don't move when I move the sticks. Help?
