    Looking to see if anyone has a FPV racer they may have wrecked or upgraded and looking to get rid of for a decent price. I'm on a tight budget at the moment after buying three quads but I've been watching tons of FPV freestyle videos and I'm really interested in getting a brushless racer. I've been looking at Eachine 250 racers a few different styles but here are my wants, They're not required I'll definitely consider all options. I am new here, so I'll comply with your terms as long as we can both use PayPal.

    What I am looking at:
    Brushless
    FPV (doesn't have to be complete)
    Acro FC (preferably a horizon/acro mode)
    A racer or freestyle type frame

    Thanks!

    Buy cheap & build your own. It's the only way to go. Your gonna break it for sure so unless your gonna send it away at cost you will learn how to fix it yoself. It's easy. Plenty of vids out there explaining everything. RC model reviews has a good 3 part video on building kwads on YouTube & Joshua Bardwell has vids on basically everything else. Believe me it's the way to go. I picked it up in weeks. I could build before I could fly now I can fly. Well getting there anyway if I couldn't fix them I would have given up on it by now. Good luck.

    I suppose but nevertheless it shows how easy it is. Only dated because of new hardware but the basics are there.

    I will be building a DIY soon but I don't want it to be the one I really learn acro on.. I'm gonna build it how I want it with quality parts.

    I'm hunting eBay also but if anyone has a Falcon 250 or Racer 250 that may be crashed or missing stuff please give me a price. Thanks.

    For what u will pay for 2nd hand you could buy cheap brand new. 70-80 bucks for a full kit off ebay. I know loads of people who just wanna fly but not know how to fix or can't be bothered. Hobby over. Waste of money.

    FWIW do you think this little, 15 yo squirt who won $250000 in Dubai built his racer?

    I'm capable and have all the tools to fix or make a quad, and I'll have a custom built rig done eventually. Just scouting.

    Maybe he did, or if not then he maybe capable. I wouldn't chance buying spares or 2nd hand off anyone, online especially. My year old worst quad has probably £150 worth of gear on it but I wouldn't sell it. if I did I would probably want more than it's worth. Like I said kits are cheap. I get emax Rs2205for £14 each esc's £10 each, SPF3 £20,
    There's £120 already, you can buy a kit for that & spare motors & props. Cheap don't necessarily mean crap. Just a bit better insurance on what you buy. If he doesn't want to wreck his first quad he builds like me then tough dodo it's gonna happen.
    What is FWIW?
