At first glance, the Armor 90 might seem like another toy claiming to be an FPV racing drone, but don’t let it’s looks fool you.

This is the real deal! there are a few different versions and colors available. Since this is a true FPV racing drone, it doesn’t come with a controller. This means you can use whatever controller you already have, or pick out what controller is right for you.

The Armor 90 comes in two different models. There’s a DSM receiver version and a version with no receiver, so you can use whatever transmitter and receiver you want. I use the FrSky Taranis, so I would use my own receiver and it would plug right in. Again, since this is a true racer you will need to buy batteries and FPV goggles if you want to do FPV.

This drone has a lot of really cool features. Although it’s only 90 mm in size, it has 7500KV brushless motors capable of running 2S or 3S batteries. That means this thing will fly like a mini bullet! To drive each motor, the Armor 90 has a 4 in 1 ESC capable of handling 10 amps of power per motor. It’s also Oneshot/Dshot300 compatible for super fast motor response times.

For me, the coolest thing about this quadcopter is that it comes ready to race with a F3 flight controller running Bateflight_OMNIBUS firmware. It also has a built in OSD (on-screen-disply) that you can use to change settings in the flight controller without needing a computer!

The FPV camera is nothing special, but it’s nice that it’s included. It’s a 600TVN camera with a 120 degree field-of-view. The video transmitter is 5.8ghz 25mW with 40 channels, so it will work with any FPV goggles or video receiver you have. I would’ve liked to have seen a 150mW video transmitter for better penetration through walls, but the 25mW is still enough to have a lot of fun with.

So… If you or someone you know is into FPV and looking for a tiny worry-free FPV racer/freestyle drone that comes almost ready to fly at an affordable price, the Armor 90 will definitely keep you busy. It’s not a drone you can easily outgrow. I would also recommend it as your first FPV racing drone because it’s super small, super durable, and super fast!
