Looking at the pictures with the HISKY HMX280 racing Quad we may think that we are dealing with a waterproof aircraft, but attention, this quadcopter is NOT waterproof at all!
The designers from HiSKY have done a good job when they engineered this model. The overall look of this racer is definitely different from the one other multi-rotors have and inspires “SPEED”. Unfortunately, the airframe is made from plastic, not from fiber carbon which is more lightweight and resistant. In the front of the canopy there are two bright LED lights that probably look awesome during night flight. Two red LED lights in the rear of the aircraft and another 4 LED lights (one on each end of the arms) will help to establish the position of the quad-copter.
Regarding the specs, this quadcopter has around 400 meters control range, which is not bad at all. If you need more range, this can be increased adding a 2.4GHz range extender (booster) through the antenna’s SMA connector.
The HMX 280 Talon can be equipped with a brushless gimbal and camera, but be aware that the ground clearance is around only 4 cm and you should use only low profil gimbals.
