In my opinion, there are no flying gadgets out there more exciting than FPV drones right now. The Armor 220 paired with a compatible FPV goggles is the closest thing to being a bird.
With a starting price of $268, the Armor220 quadcopter its a bit cheaper than its direct competitor, the HOLYBRO KOPIS 1. Both FPV quads are based on the popular Omnibus F4 flight controller. The AuroraRC Armor220 frame kit can be also purchased separately for $57.99.
The Armor 220 is available with two types of radio receiver. According to your existing remote controller you can opt for FlySky AFHDS 2A or FrSky XM+ receiver.
