Hey Everyone! Welcome to my build video of the ZMR250 FPV racing drone! I’ve included the entire parts list WITH LINKS so that you can easily find the same or similar parts 🙂 In this video I will be building the ZMR250 from scratch, and not necessarily on a budget. I’ve upgraded a few components and purchased top of the line equipment which really is not needed just to get the ZMR 250 with FPV up and running. I did look into the Blackout mini 250 and other pre-built FPV racing drones but I wanted the experience of building one from scratch. This is partly why I went with the ZMR250. I must say though, I am very happy with this drone despite the setback and mess-ups I encountered (I’ll get to those later). Another good reason for building the FPV drone from scratch is the knowledge you gain from the experience. I knew nothing about frequencies, voltage, soldering and simply piloting FPV drones. I can’t say that I’m now an expert, but I know a LOT more than if I bought this thing off the shelf (let along the feeling of accomplishment once you finish-took about a month to build).
Moving forward, it was important that I kept track of the parts and links to the parts so that anyone watching this video could, in theory, buy the same parts and build the same drone. Feel free to leave a comment if you have a question about switching out a component for a cheaper one. There are many big ticket items like the Transmitter and FPV Goggles that can be switched out. Either myself or someone in the YouTube community will do their best to help you. I really hope you enjoy this video, and the parts to follow. I’ll also post some more entertainment geared videos of flying in cool places once I get my GoPro hooked up and mounted.
YOUTUBE WONT LET ME PASTE THE ENTIRE PARTS LIST SO HERE IS A GOOGLE DOC WITH THE LIST:
