Today we’re checking out the LANCHI Bluebird Racer 85S which is a new micro FPV racer featuring 1104 7500KV brushless motors, F3 based flight controller, 700TVL camera with 25mW VTX, and a 4 in 1 BLHeli 12A ESC.
The body of this quadcopter is made of carbon fiber and features a lightweight plastic shell covering up all of the electronics.
Surrounding each propeller is a plastic “duct” which is going to go a long way to stop you from breaking your propellers in the event of a crash.
The camera appears to be in a fixed position at a slightly upward facing angle and uses a whip antenna which is going to help negate damage in a crash.
I understand that the top shell is completely enclosed but a little bit of angle adjustment would be nice for different flying styles.
The battery included with this quadcopter is only 30C which IMO is just skirting the line of not being adequate. I would highly suggest picking up some similarly sized spare batteries with a higher C rating just in case.
They offer this quadcopter in 3 versions, FRSKY, FLYSKY, and DSM2 which should allow most people to fly this quadcopter with their existing transmitter.
The LANCHI Bluebird Racer 85S is definitely a tiny micro FPV flyer and is around the same size as an Inductrix or one of its many clones. As far as performance goes I expect it to work nicely so long as you have a proper battery though the whole thing is a bit expensive when you compare it to other similarly spec racers.
