The KINGKONG team have done it again. Using their popular 260 FPV frame they have added a great package of gear to make an excellent Plug and Play package complete with FPV camera and Video TX.
This multirotor is powered by the KINGKONG Force 200 Multirotor driving equipment set. The kit has everything you need from a pre tuned mini CC3D flight controller to down to the Spironet Antenna.
The motors are KINGKONG 2204-2300KV (CW and CCW) powered by KINGKONG 12A OPTO BLHeli ESC’s. With a UBEC (5v 3A) power to the PDB. 6040 Propellers will quicken your pace.
There is a preinstalled FPV camera and video TX so just tune in the channel and get flying. The FPV camera is angled so you see where you are going when the race is on.
Just to ensure that your competitors know where you are there is super bright LED strip at the rear as this will be the only part they will see.
This exciting packing not only looks the part but will give you hours of racing enjoyment at the right price.

What can i say,i am blown away by this quad. Having moved into this side of the hobby, i didn't want to spend a lot but i must say this performs like a much more expensive model. Had trouble hooking into Librepilot till i found an incorrect driver on my computer. Once that was sorted i was able to set this up using the Hobbyking FPV Racer profile.It's on bank one at the moment but as a noobie it's perfect, stable and responsive. If you are trying this sport for the fist time, you can't go wrong with this quad, top marks Hobbyking, definitely a winner.Fun quad!! This is my first racing quad, and although a little nervous about how to set everything up it turned out to be very straight forward. I downloaded the Libre-Pilot GCS software (available at: https://librepilot.atlassian.net/wiki/display/LPDOC/Downloads), and prebound my Spektrum satellite receiver with a primary receiver instead or going through the painful binding process. Once bound you plug your satellite receiver into the front left port and go through the Libre-Pilot wizard to setup and calibrate. It's that simple. Video worked great and aircraft flies awesome.Very good racer for price.
If you are starting with fpv racer it's a good choice.
Here a video of my first flight with a fpv (and my kingkong by the way) :
Very cheap and easy to repair !great frame for beginners and pricingonly problem is when you break a arm you have to pull it ll apart and does get a bit annoying after 2 or 3 crasheswow this thing is alot of fungreat quad .
it took some time to to make it fly with my aurora 9 system but at the end it's flying.
the tx is bul......
the quad fly fast and you find yourself loosing video very fast.
lucklly i found it lost in the fields only with the rear red light.
order fatshark 400mw tx for the future flights.
ilanI recently got these at what was a great price and now they are even lower. I was skeptical at first but apparently these got a bad rep for reasons I don't experience. I did receive 1 that the rear LED bar was shorted out of the box and smoked out even with a smoke stopper installed. Good thing I ordered 2 sets of frames which came with and extra light bar. The original got so hot it popped a LED off. The other thing. This was my first time using a CC3D FC and it was a total nightmare to get it flashed and going as I wanted it.
Now for the rest of the story. I am truly impressed so far. Much like their props that have saved me tons of money, these 260 class UAV's are a fantastic value at their current price. Are there areas I modified before the first flight? You bet! Some like the vtx zip tie needed a bit of help. The antenna needed put through the rear hole and then supported by plastic mold or one could use hot glue. There are things they could have done better IMHO but again ... Try to build one half as good for the money. I found it impossible.
Unless it develops some kinda voodoo and flies apart, next few times out, I call it a winner in many ways. Or at the very least a sleeper value.I really really wanted to like this quad. Almost everything is perfect for a beginner who doesn't want to learn how to design/build them all themselves, except the frame. The frames are so fragile its not funny. What are you going to do when you start out? Crash. I bought this kit, and the 2 replacement frame kit and I have already broken two frames from only light crashes. The worst part is that the weak point of the frame is near the motor, so when the frame breaks it tears the motor off the ESC, destroying the motor. This means I have had to replace the motors as well.
Every other component on the quad works really well and is value for money. Since the price has been dropped so much since I purchased it a few weeks ago it might actually be worth buying this for parts. I will continue to use the FPV camera and transmitter, motors, ESCs, FC, and props, but I will be transferring them over to a carbon fiber frame. Don't skimp on the frame like I did. Save money on any other component.Excellent racing quad for this price range! Flies really good and is a awesome racing quad for beginners. Be aware though; there are no documentation at all in the box, so you'll have to spend some time getting to know it.
Couple of tips:
1. Download LibrePilot to set the quad up. Just use the vehicle setup wizard, and then the transmitter setup wizard afterwards and you should be good to go!
2. If you're using the taranis with the X8R module and want to use your SBUS-port, you get a cable in package that fits in the main port (the one in the back, on the right hand side of the FC), and that has 4 pins on the other end. From the outer side of the SBUS-port, you want to plug in the black wire, the red wire and then the yellow wire. You don't have to use the green wire, just hide it in the quad (or cut it w/e).
But all in all, a great quad at a great price :)A brilliant little quad, well built, good components and well finished. The camera and VTX are good and should be more than okay for close fpv racing/flying. The motors are powerful and pair nicely with the ESC's. The frame is very strong/sturdy and the PDB is also very good and nicely incorporated into the frame. The flight control board is okay, i would say it has some limitations as it is a CC3D and I don't know how long the support will last for openpilot but it can be swapped out at a later date. It is more than enough for beginners/intermediate flyers such as myself.
To flash the board you will need openpilot 15.2 (just go to openpilots website) plug it in and it has a set up wizard that makes it all really easy. Of course you will need to have a radio and spare receiver too. Overall really happy with this purchase but I would say you would need some existing experience with quads/openpilot.
