Diatone Crusader165 Minitype Race Drone (P&P)

Diatone Innovations have put out another outstanding range of FPV Racing Drones, the CRUSADER series. The drones come in the highly successful “X” frame, with FPV tower, format.  This keeps all the equipment in the middle of the frame keeping the frame well balanced. The CRUSADER series comes in a number of different wheelbase sizes to suit all different flying styles and racing requirements. The Crusaders come fully equipped and only require the FPV camera tower to be installed on the frame.

The Crusader165 is driven by a Diatone Naze32 (Rev6) Thin Series (4.5mm thickness) flight controller. This FC has built-in FrSky telemetry and battery voltage monitoring. The power distribution board is made of 2oz copper and has 4-layers to provide 5V or 12V. A buzzer will let you know when the batteries get low. The color of the rear LED Light Bar can be easily changed so spectators easily know who is winning the race.

Plenty of power comes from BE2204-2300KV Brushless motors running 4045 size propellers. Using a 3~4S 1300mAh LiPoly battery will get your drone moving. Optional motor guards/landing legs are also provided for protection. 

FPV video is provided by a Carry 800TVL 1/3” CMOS micro camera that can be switched between NTSC and PAL. The camera mount can be adjusted between 0-45 degrees which will provide the best viewing for the speed you are travelling. All the video is transmitted through a Diatone SP1 raceband 5.8GHz 200mW VTX. A Nixie Tube easily displays the frequency.

This drone is quickly put together and will have you racing in no time.
