After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best racing drones for 2019 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
Holy Stone HS150 Bolt Bee Mini Racing Drone
The idea is of this Bolt Bee drone is based on using aerodynamic design to maximize speed. By eliminating redundant space to reduce weight, thereby conserving battery life and improving the effectiveness. No other drones have done the same, but I hope that more drones will adopt the same method. Regardless, I must say it is definitely a good design approach from Holy Stone. Next section of Holy Stone HS150 review will be about the modular battery and its features.
First, the Bolt Bee Drone uses… the modular designed battery. You might be wondering, what the heck is a modular designed battery? Basically, it is a modified standard battery that comes with an additional layer of protection against overcharging and fire hazards. Not only I am saying this, but it comes with improved delivery of power from the battery to drone which is a huge performance impact.
The company claimed that Bolt Bee drone can soar at max speed up to 31 miles per hour. And from my experience, this is a racing drone packed with serious speed. This is a quadcopter that will have no issue zipping some windy conditions. Furthermore, adding or removing propeller guards won’t have any impact on the speed since it is so negligible.
Contixo F6 RC Quadcopter Racing Drone
The Contixo F6 RC Quadcopter Racing Drone is one of the finest racing drones fitted with the latest drone technology. Its authenticity rests with the fact that while the other racing drones go for about 12 minutes airborne, the Contixo F6 go for a solid 18 minutes on a single charge.
Based on this,… many people consider it the best racing drone among the other quadcopters. And since it uses the latest technology, flying it is simpler and more fun as it allows the pilot absolute control during flight.
With this done you can take to the skies with absolute confidence. If you have been looking around expecting to find the ideal racing drone for your adventures, look no more! Go online, find the nearest drone dealer and get yourself a one-of-its-kind F6 racing drone. It is one of the cheap racing drones that still rock the sky with amazing features.
Holy Stone HS230 RC Racing
The Holy Stone HS230 RC Racing FPV Drone is light weighted and sturdy that is able to accelerate fast and reach speed of 45km/h in a matter of seconds. With HEADLESS MODE and 3D FLIP, it performs well in aerial maneuvers and orientation of the drone will no longer be an issue.
Equipped with a 120°… WIDE-ANGLE 720P HD MODULAR CAMERA, you will be able to clearly navigate through all obstacles in the race see through the LCD screen of the transmitter. The viewfinder lens of the HD camera can be used for aerial photography to capture every wonderful moment and shockingly beautiful panoramic view.
The controls are simple and racer can toggle to 3 different speed modes from low to high, suitable for both beginners and experts. The batteries can support longer flight time for 14-20 minutes in total.
REDPAWZ FPV Racing Drone, R011 5.8G 40CH Micro FPV
VR-D1 has a total of 4 control buttons (+, Menu, – and Scan/Power). Image quality (brightness, saturation and contrast) adjustments are possible. OSD shows the actual frequency and the goggle’s battery level.
Thanks to the adjustable headbands,… the VR-D1 fits comfortable for adults as well as for children. Unfortunately, being very small, it is almost impossible to wear it together with correction glasses.
Due to the small screen size, the immersion feeling is less impressive in comparison with 7″ models. FOV seems even more limited due to the 4:3 aspect ratio. RF sensitivity is far from being the best. Anyway, in my opinion, for the little R011 you don’t need a better FPV goggle.
Parrot Mambo FPV – Complete Starter Pack for Drone Racing
Start small by going big! Discover the universe of drones by immersing yourself into an FPV flight experience like no other! This tiny drone can fit in the palm of your hand, but make no mistake it packs a punch! With the Parrot Mambo FPV, break all boundaries and enjoy an immersive experience that only cutting edge technology can bring you.
The FPV camera and Parrot Cockpitglasses… 2 guarantee to plunge you into the unprecedented world of racing. Take on the other challengers and become a genuine FPV racing pilot. Become an FPV drone racing pilot thanks to three new flying modes. Start with the Easy mode, which keeps your drone in the air even if you let go of the controls. Then switch to the Drift mode, which turns the horizontal stabilization off and lets you to make tight turns.
Finally, give the Racing mode a try to have complete control of the drone without any stabilization assistance. The possibilities are endless! It has never been so easy to escape thanks to the Parrot Flypad which lets you fly your Parrot Mambo over a distance of up to 100 m. Fly not only farther, but also longer with the new high-performance Power Battery lasting up to 10 minutes.
ImmersionRC Airplanes RC Vortex 180 Mini
Almost every piece of electronics has been modified from the Vortex 250 Pro and big improvements have been made—starting with the flight controller. It’s an all new design called Synergy, with duel F3 processors for faster 8KHz update rates. Because of this, it also comes with Bataflight firmware pre installed instead of Cleanflight. If you didn’t understand any of that, just know that this drone will fly super locked-in.
All of this would be useless… without good motor speed controllers, but thankfully all four 32-bit ESCs support ONESHOT 42. One great thing about ImmersionRC ESCs is the fact that you never have to worry about soldering the motor wires on backwards thanks to the rotorSENSE feature. With rotorSENSE, if one motor is spinning in the wrong direction, you just spin the motor by hand in the direction you want it to go and the ESC will then spin the motors in that direction.
When the Vortex 180 is turned on in the pit area, or on the park bench, the video transmitter power output is reduced to less than 1mW to reduce energy consumption and excess heat. Then when you start flying, the output power automatically increase to its default setting. Additionally, you can set the flying output from 1 to 400mW.
Maxxrace STEM Rc toys DIY Mini Racing Drone
Our next drone kit ups the price a bit, but also comes with some more features. Immediately jumping out on this drone is the camera that can be viewed with the compatible smartphone app. For those wanting camera support on their drone, this is a solid kit that provides just that.
It too is also quite easy… to put together and comes with additional pictures on the smartphone app. They say it takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, and that seems like a pretty fair estimate, even for a beginner.
It also comes with a lot of the ease of use features like altitude hold and easy take off. This makes it a great learning drone for first time flyers, and the cheap price makes it great for practicing with. Overall, this is a nice little drone kit that is easy to put together and comes with a camera. Not a bad deal for the price.
DROCON Bugs 6 Brushless Racing Drone
Although it’s fully made from nylon plastic instead of carbon fiber, at least the arm’s structure seems pretty strong and should resist pretty well to smaller crashes. All the electronic parts (GR303B flight controller and 4in1 ESC) are well protected by a nice plastic canopy.
As you can see… the Drocon Bugs 6’s transmitter looks pretty nice. Which is more important, the range, is also great. According to the specs it offers about 200 ~ 300 meters flight distance. Through the red shoulder button you can arm/disarm the brushless motors.
