Today we present you another RC drone with a 32-bit processor and a powerful brushless motor. It is a very powerful racing drone with a long lifespan. The model comes “ready to fly” so you don’t need any experience in crafting!

In particular, the FPV function is great and offers a particularly good value for money.

The camera can be manually adjusted from 0 to 90 degrees. Especially noteworthy is the fact that the micro camera is so light and small, yet still delivers superb image quality.

Technical data and facts

The KakuteF7 flight controller, including the gyroscope, is used for mechanical vibration filtering. It also ensures an optimal balance between stiffness and damping, resulting in improved gyroscopic performance.

Atlatl HV V2, which operates at 5.8 GHz, is used as a VTX. 40-channel kit included. Frequencies 5645 and 5945 MHz are not supported.

The manufacturer has thought about connecting the antenna. Here the MMCX connection is integrated, which provides a secure and stable connection. The connection does not break or loosen. This can happen with IPEX connections.

The motors operate without brushes and support 4S to 6S batteries, but the motors are optimized for 4S.

Design

The design is very unusual, all the electrical components are under the carbon fiber plate. The camera is at the front and you can easily adjust its angle.

Many models have the camera at the bottom and this quadcopter at the top.

To ensure that the drone can develop its maximum power, the propellers are especially large and have a correspondingly ergonomic shape. You can quickly assemble or disassemble the rotors. However, they are very durable and can withstand a lot.

The antenna is located on the back of the quadcopter. Since electronic components such as various printed circuit boards and cable connections are barely protected, we do not recommend flying the drone outdoors in the rain.

The Holybro Kopis 2 SE FPV Racing RC drone arms are made of 5mm 3K carbon fiber. For comparison, the top plate is only 3 mm thick and the bottom plate is 4 mm thick. The frame has several beveled edges to reduce the risk of injury.

In addition, the body cover is quite long, so you can easily install another HD camera on it. Here, we spontaneously recall the GoPro 3 Cam, which can now be purchased fairly cheaply.

You can choose the size of the battery, there is no limit. One of the reasons for this is that the frame is specially designed.

The frame structure is well developed. For example, you can easily and conveniently replace one hand without having to change the entire basic structure.

camera

This is a RunCam Swift Micro FPV camera. There isn’t much to say here. The photo sensor is often used in drone models such as the Holybro Kopis 2 SE FPV Racing RC drone and has excellent recording quality. This is enough to be able to participate in spectacular FPV races.

The FPV camera is mounted using a 3D printed TPU bracket that allows the tilt angle to be adjusted from 0 to 90 degrees.

The camera comes with a keyboard that you can use to easily adjust the camera settings.

There is also a built-in microphone so you can hear the motors running while flying.

Battery and flight time

There is no battery included, so you should definitely buy a flight battery. Here, the drone supports storage systems from 4S to 6S. As mentioned, the motors are optimized for 4S operation and you can use any battery size listed above as the top plate has a fairly large area.

The actual flight time depends a lot on the maximum charge reserve of the quadcopter.

Larger flight batteries have the advantage that you can fly the drone longer, but the overall weight will be greater.

Who is this model for?

Damn newbies may not need to buy an FPV racing drone right away, but rather buy a cheaper and smaller model first.

For experienced users and professionals actively involved in drone racing, the Holybro Kopis 2 SE FPV drone is definitely interesting and recommended. However, there is no kit here, it is a Ready to Fly object. However, it is possible to simply replace individual parts. It requires a little crafting skill.

Conclusion

The drone makes a very good impression in the air, it moves fast and agile, which is really cool and a lot of fun.

If you like pure power and dynamic FPV racing then the Holybro Kopis 2 SE FPV Racing RC drone is definitely for you.

Unfortunately, some of the rotor blades can be seen in the FPV power supply, which is a slight drawback, but you get used to it very quickly and then unknowingly hide them. There is also no flight battery included, so you need to buy the appropriate battery.

Otherwise, the drone is really great and highly recommended.
