190 size FPV racer build & review from GEP

Hi,

A 190 size FPV racer kit review from the GEP brand (so called ZX5 model). What's different about the previous FPV racers build I did before is a X frame while my former builds were always made with a classical H frame.

X frames have an advantage over H frames in that they are more symetrical (useful in FPV racing) and they twist much less along the central beam : that is a better Yaw control in racing.

Issue though with an X frame in a small FPV racer is the lack of room to setup all of the electronics.

Also beware when buying those kits: I noticed during the build that the provided camera was not meant for the holes designed in the camera carbon fiber plates (camera models evolve so fast and there are no dimension standards yet).

Overall we notice a good level of maturity in this kit and suppliers that obviously listen and learn from the field experience.

Links are available in the youtube video description.

Cheers

How many time you spend mounting the racers?

(I like how you mount solder cleaning sponge :) I'm going to find something heavier from mine).

difficult to say how long because I do it here and there when i have 30 minutes to spare; I would say that if you know the frame and you know exactly what are the steps, you could do it in a few hours.
