FPV 101 PRC Product Guide



 

Wondering how to get into FPV drones and/or drone racing? We have a selection of products great for entry level drone enthusiasts (or for the drone-curious!) folks. Below you'll find a list of our entry-level drones and gear. To get started, you'll need a drone, a compatible radio (more on that below), and a screen or goggles.


To make it easier for beginners, we put together an FPV 101 package. The Inductrix micro quad is probably the most fun toy available right now, and pairing it with the included transmitter is a piece of cake. The Inductrix features a high-quality FPV camera which will transmit its video signal on a range of frequencies, which you can tune into using the included LCD screen. Get a better deal than purchasing the parts individually! Click the picture to the right to see more details:

Drones

 

Entry Level Drones

The following four drones are PRC's entry-level quadcopters. The Mighty Whoop is PRC's answer to the Tiny Whoop craze. It's safe, durable, and affordable, and the components were hand-picked by PRC's knowledgeable team. The Blade Inductrix comes ready to go out of the box - just bind it to your radio and you're ready to fly! It has become an industry standard and is the perfect quad for a beginner. The Blade Inductrix Pro gives the pilot more flexibility with a BetaFlight compatible flight controller, and has a new frame design which improves durability. If you're looking for a real beginner's challenge, look into the EMAX Babyhawk. It comes ready to fly out of the box, but its size requires more space and practice to master. This is the only quad on this list we recommend taking outside - the other three are excellent for indoor practice or even indoor racing!

Radios

 

Radios

Different drones use different protocols, and to get flying with one of the above drones you'll need either a Spektrum radio or a FrSky Taranis radio. The Blade Inductrix and Blade Inductrix Pro utilize the Spektrum protocol, so the Spektrum DXe or DX6e would be the best choice for you if you purchase either of those. The PRC Mighty Whoop and the BNF Babyhawk both use the FrSky protocol, so the Taranis Q X7 is the radio you'd purchase to accompany those quads.

Goggles and Screens

 

Goggles and Screens

FPV (first-person view) allows the pilot to place themselves inside their drone without leaving the ground. We've got three affordable ways to watch the drones'-eye view. The Eachine LCD Screen runs on batteries so can be taken to parks or races. The Eachine Goggles Two is the most comfortable and lightweight set of affordable goggles we have ever worn. If you'd like to get into Fat Sharks, the best set for your money is currently the Attitude V4 Anniversary headset. The Anniversary edition was a single run, but once those run out the Attitudes are still a fantastic deal!

Batteries

 

Batteries

These little drones are powered by Lipo batteries. The PRC Mighty Whoop, Blade Inductrix, and Blade Inductrix Pro are all powered by 1S batteries, and the Babyhawk is powered by 2S batteries. Consider purchasing multiple batteries to start since racing times can be short on these small batteries (the 1S batteries have 3-5 minutes of air time and the 2S batteries have 5-7 minutes).
