iFlight Defender 25: DJI AVATA clone?

iFlight Defender 25

For this Cristmas, iFlight prepared a new DJI AVATA-like FPV drone with O3 Air Unit onboard. The iFlight Defender 25 is the successor of the ProTek series. It adopts similar Whoop duct propeller protectors.

Defender 25 comes in my with durability and usability. Weighting less than 250 grams doesn’t require registration in most countries. It has a durable injection molded frame to protect the electronics and motors during minor crashes. Inside the frame, there is a BLITZ D25 F7 AIO flight controller. The 1404-type motors are paired with 2525 (2.5-inch) propellers.

Unlike most FPV drones, iFlight powers the Defender25 with a proprietary battery pack, not a standard LIPO pack. There are two options, 4S 550mAh (≤249g) and 900mnAh (≤280g), for longer flight time.

According to your existing remote controller, you can opt for TBS Crossfire Nano RX or ELRS 2.4GHZ/915MHz radio receiver. The PNP version is DJI FPV controller V2 compatible.

Pricing, availability, and options

The Defender25 is available at Banggood with an analog FPV system for $317.39 or with HD digital FPV for US$604.89. These prices include a charging adapter, one 500mAh battery, and two pairs of propellers.

  1. US$633.89 for TBS version? I think iFlight is joking with us, is more expensive than the original DJI AVATA with tons of more features!

    • Yeah the upside to tbs is distance, but also moot point obviously. May give some elbow room so everything isn’t on 2.4/5.8. Sure there’s some benny I’m not thinking of but doesn’t make sense with Avata, though the new firmware update from Ma Deej kinda crapped that guy out too…bunch of people with their phones tucked in to a hat pocket now lol
