Racing vs Freestyle Quads Comparison | Drone Racing Report | Vol 9

We look at some of the common differences between racing drones and freestyle quads. While you can often use one drone for both styles of flying, there are some features that can help improve your quad for either discipline, such as frame styles, weight, balance, components, and more.

    Good video, I was wondering what kind of drone I need for freestyle and after watching this, it’s quite clear. For "long distance" you also need to consider a bit aerodynamics I guess?

    90% of the quads showed in the video are atleast 1-2 years old design.. pretty outdated videography, just an observation

    I fucking hate rules, I don’t want to run into any kind of rules in my future like in a racing league, so it looks like it’s the freestyle route for me…
    plus well I just like all the aerobatics you can do, the longer run time, the long range you can go with crossfire and the awesome footage you get to watch back on your computer from your go pro knockoff camera…
