Hi EveryOne! As you know FPV drone racing is a fast growing sport. These days, most people build their own racers, but is that about to change?
On February 9th, Team Black Sheep (TBS) announced the Vendetta, a completely new FPV racing drone with features we’ve never seen before on a quadcopter of this size.
For people who don't know the drone Racing League "DRL".
This is an presentation!
So TBS Vendetta is the best FPV Racer at moment?!
TBS Vendetta Features
Racing drones like the Vendetta are usually much smaller than camera drones like the Phantom 4, but don’t let the small size fool you. The TBS Vendetta will easily reach speeds of 70mph and above when racing on a track, or over 100mph when doing nose dives down the sides of cliff faces.
What's in the ?
The box was extremely small with the signature of Team "BIG WHOOP"😇😇
But... what we have inside this small box 😍😍?
Therefore, packaging aside the main items we're interested in right away is the gorgeous full carbon fiber monocoque body - this thing really is a work of art. For me, this is what sets itself apart from the Vortex - it is a unique feature of the Vendetta, not even just unique to the RTF quads but I believe this is the only frame at all for quad racing that has been manufactured like this. Aside from the eye-candy, it feels extremely strong; the exterior finish is great with all of the little holes and details across it. You can see a lot of thought has been put into this.
We have the pair of arms, with pre-installed Cobra 2204 2300kv motors. Again, these look super tidy, the fact there is a full set of motor wires and connectors on the arms does not take anything away from them, they look super tidy and I can't wait to see how the Cobras perform on a quad like this (I'm used to relatively light quads now).
Add to this we have a bag of accessories used to screw the arms to the body; various screw covers and some extra cables for connecting your receiver etc. Finally yet importantly, we cannot forget the TBS Triumph antenna. These antennas are fantastic, and pulled ahead of any other that I tested. It's not even so much the performance of them, which I like, but the fact they are so small, and seem to be super durable so far.
There are a few reasons why we think the Vendetta is the best ready-to-fly racing drone, but the main reason is because it’s designed well and all of the parts have great performance and quality.
The Vendetta is a drone that’s going to be hard to break, but if it does, no problem! It’s one of the only drones that doesn’t require a soldering iron when you need to replace components after crashing. This is a big deal for racing drones, because you’re always crashing and repairing it at racing events, or even just at the park. Because of its modular design, you can also upgrade to bigger motors, add a high-voltage battery and instantly have a faster machine.
As far as price goes, it’s about $500 (which is pretty normal for a drone this size with all of the features that it has).
Availability for the Vendetta is not the best right now because it’s new and high in demand, but if you ordered one today you could expect to have it in your hands within a month.
