The next drone to check out is the Holy Stone F181 usually just known as the F181. This drone with a built-in camera has a number of controls that make it easy to control even if this is your first time flying a drone. Even if you wreck it it should keep flying. The controls that this drone comes with are very easy for beginners to use. You can fly the drone in four different modes - from 25% to 100% - to fit every level. Headless mode also helps beginners keep their drone under control. F181 is very durable; it can stand up to a number of bumps and crashes. This is ideal for the beginner and intermediate drone pilot who are still learning to do tricks and fly. The kit also comes with extra propellers.
Longevity and Insurance: Powerful drones do not come cheap so you need to get your racing drone insured before taking part in a contest. This is because in a racing event crash episodes damages and collisions are quite common. If your drone isnt repairable you are going to lose a good amount of money. Once you get your hands on a racing drone you first need to learn its controls. Basic controls are required for a normal just-for-fun flight but when you are taking part in a race with world-class drone pilots as your competitors you need to master some advanced level skills as well. Fine tuning your drone to keep it stable when taking off and flying in mid-air is also a very important step. How to change the altitude how to fly through the trees and how to avoid obstacles or even collide with small objects during flight and getting back on the track again are some of the things you need to learn.
FPV Camera: Dont forget to buy a model that comes equipped with a FPV camera and this is clearly mentioned in the specifications when you check out various models of drones. The position of the camera is also important in drone racing because you want to see what lies ahead when your drone is tilted forward. Flight Controller: Just keep in mind that without a good flight controller you are never going to win a drone racing contest. Why? Because such a controller comes with firmware that makes a drone flight smooth and stable. Many novice pilots can easily overlook this feature but this is one tip youre going to receive from every drone racer who has had a good experience in the field.
