Youbi VX 130 Review FPV Racing Drone Best looking Mini drone in 2016
Youbi VX is a small 130mm size racing quadcopter, which looks really GREAT! Whole construction looks really delicious, almost like RotorX V2 Atom 😆 . This could be the best looking mini racing drone in 2016, but it’s also quite powerful; 1306 3300kv and 3x3x4BN props – great compilation. For sure Youbi VX will fly like a small rocket .
Battery compatibility: 3s-4s LIPO
Frame thickness: Bottom plate/Arms 2.5mm
Arf weight: 115g ( without battery )
FC: SP F3 Acro 6DOF ( with built-in VTX )
Motors size: 1306 36ooKV with 2mm main shaft and japanese bearings
ESC: 3-4s 20A with BLheli
Propellers: 3030BN 4 blades
FPV camera: CMOS 600TVL
FPV TX: Switchable power 25mW/200mW/400mW 40ch 5.8ghz
FPV Antenna: RHCP
Youbi VX will come in small box, inside we will find:
- Youbi VX Drone
- PPM and SBUS receiver cable
- 8 x 3030 4 blades BN props
- 5.8GHZ antenna
- Two battery straps
Dammit, Youbi VX looks really delicious. It looks like small legit ” Star Wars Racing Drone “.
With mounted props it looks even better.
Motors & props
Motors 1306 3300KV are really not bad. The quality is similar to kingkong 1306 motors. These motors are only 3300KV ?! But this is the best choice for 3x3x4 props- it will increase thrust and efficience.
Props 3x3x4 are not very stiff, so this is really good, because the power of the hit in case of crash, shouldn’t go straight to motor shaft so motors will live much longer.
Frame and inside build
Frame is only 2mm; for a racing drone this is a big con, because we have to be careful. A big crash will easily break frame, but this is not the only con that I’ve found in this drone.
Inside we can also see FC with built video transmitter, ESC board and camera:
Fpv camera can’t be adjusted, but it’s super tiny. The video quality is really not bad. To demount camera we just need to disconnect small 3wired cable.
FC/FPV VTX & ESC
First of all, this is a piece of art. FC is a SP racing F3 6fod , with built-in switchable video transmitter 25mW/200mW/400mW 40ch. On sides we can see ports: SBUS/PPM , ESC PWM, video in, uart 1, uart2, usb.
ESC are working on BLheli_S, so this is not a shitty one, but DSHOT ready :). Every single ESC is 3s-4S 20A constant and 30A peak, so it’s a great because 1306 motors can’t get more than 16A.
Worth to mention is that we can see battery voltage on Betaflight ( heall yeah! )
I have seen that a lot of people heat this connectors and I can’t understand why ?! XT-30 nominal amperage is 30A and peak 55, so it’s more than necessary for small 250grams drones ( even my “Little beast” can’t get more than 45Amps ). XT-30 are much lighter than XT-60. For example: a pair of XT30 with solder is 3g. XT60 almost 9g ! ( so difference is big, weight for regular small AIO cameras is 5g) .
I am using FRsky, so small receivers like AC800 or FRsky Tiny will fit perfect as you can see.
This is the most important thing, with receiver strap and other equipment the weight is only 128g!. I’ve noticed that antena is super heavy ( 8g ).
I installed Betaflight 3.0.1 without any problems, also you can see stock ESC settings ( in next post I will show you best settings for Youbi ).
Size comparison to other drones 🙂 .
I have seen how fast is this drone and I am really impressed. The only con is 2mm thick frame … . All other components mounted in this drone are really great. For sure, I will stick to this drone for longer and will add couple mods to increase power and other things:) Price is really not bad, if we consider elements used it Youbi like switchable VTX or ESC with BLheli_S 🙂 One thing is sure; to have great fun with this drone, use only 4s battery like 500-850mah, at least true 35C.
Follow me to be tuned because great mods for this drone are coming 🙂
