NEWS: XPKRC K5, another 2.5″ HD FPV racer

The end of 2018 and 2019 will be the moment of transition for new compact FPV racers able to record in HD formats. If you don’t like the Runcam Split Mini 2 system, the XPKRC K5 is based on the Caddx Turtle V2 also able to record in 1080p@60fps: https://www.banggood.com/XPKRC-K5-120mm-FPV-Racing-Drone-PNP-BNF-Omnibus-F4SD-20A-mini-BLheli_S-Caddx-Turtle-V2-25-200mW-VTX-p-1398900.html
It’s a 120mm machine (2.5″) based on a F4+betaOSD flight controller. For the ESC, they can handle up to 4S LiPo thanks to the builtin 20A chips. Probably they are Dshot600 compatible. Motors are 1106/4500Kv… so definitively you will need a great battery with a high discharge rate to avoid massive voltage swags during 100% throttle inputs. The frame looks like the SPCmaker ones… not really protecting the main electronic tower. Arms also look pretty thin…. I hope they will be robust enough and not flexible to propagate vibrations into the HD recordings. The machine is proposed in PNP or in BNF with three choices of receivers. Wait & See.

    Sad facts of today’s life is that FLYING DRONES **anywhere** will be so overregulated that almost certainly will kill leisure as well as professional flying, and specially race drone flying.
    USA as well as UK laws are becoming draconian on subject.
    Where to fly?
    Maybe in middle of MOJAVE desert, but then some will say turles live there so that is not safeto them?
    50 m from human? Mybe on MARS?
    Fantastic hobby as well as useful professional activities will be severly controlled by bureaucrats who even know what quads are…….
    so to invest heavily in drones is as risky as finding gold in middle of street in Nw York.

    SebyDocky,

    do you prefer runcam split mini2 or the turtle v2 ?

      I can’t say…. I never had in hands the Turtle 2. I think they are very close…. and there are good feedbacks as well for the Turtle 2.
