Taking a look at the Lisam RC ML 210 Drone Racing Frame

The Quadcopter/Drone Frame we are using for this FPV Drone Racer build is the LISAM RC Carbon Fibre ML 210mm Frame Kit, the specification says its 5mm thickness so it should be very strong and robust. Let’s have look what’s in the ML210 Drone Racer Frame Kit and take some measurements

Full Frame Kit
Lisam RC FPV Drone Racer Frame Kit

We often get builds and the thickness of the Drone Racing frames are often not quite as thick as the specifications says, not so with this Lisam RC ML 210 the main frame measures 5.11mm and feels really well constructed. If you are going to fly this to the max then you will have crashes that’s inevitable so you want something that’s going to stand up and not shatter or split on the first impact.


True 5mm
The Main Frame is over 5mm Thick

The main frame weighs in at 68 grams the top frame at 10 grams the board 10grms with the camera mount supports and screws another 10 grams giving a total weight of approximated 100 grams for the structure.

An issue we had with this FPV Drone Frame Kit was the screws supplied with it they were far too short. We had to drill the holes on the carbon fibre main frame to accommodate slightly thicker longer screws. One this had been done assembling the Drone Racing Frame was a fairly simple operation. We also inserted some small washers to separate the power distribution board from the main frame as Carbon Fibre conducts electricity and we were wary of frying the electronics.

Little Pilot

The 5inch Little Pilot FPV Screen from Hawk-eye technology delivers a crystal clear image. Hawk-eye technology and Victor Koon their CEO are totally committed to producing high quality first person view products and great actions camera for aerial photography. Their Low Priced FireFly 6S 4K action camera with gyro stabilization is by far the best value action camera on the market today. Retailing at around $100 from Banggood we think it is far better than the GoPro 4 at three times the price.
