Arris X Speed 280 V2 Racing Drone Review

The Arris X Speed 280 V2 is an upgraded version of the X-Speed 280.

The motor has been upgraded to the ARRIS S2205 2300KV,and adopts the Flycolor Raptor S-Tower BHeli-S 2-4S four-in-one 30A tower.

This 4-in-1 configuration combines the electronic speed controller (ESC) with the F3 controller processor, the power distribution board(PDB) and the on screen display board (OSD).

Combining these previously separate components not only decreases the weight of the Arris X-Speed 280 V2 racing drone, but also makes maintenance easier to perform and reduces wiring clutter.

The transmitter has been upgraded to an AT9S 10ch model (from the AT9) and a 5.8G 40ch video transmission antenna has also been added to X-Speed 280 V2.

 

 

Arris X Speed 280 V2 Features

The upgraded Arris S2205 2300KV brushless motors have a long working life due to the brushless nature of the design and are equally highly efficient.

By making use of knul design, cooling systems, hollowed steel prop shaft, and high quality magnets and NSK bearings, these motors really put the X-Speed 280 V2 into a class of its own.

5042 3-blade propellers are used for the X-Speed 280 V2; these propellers are well balanced and powerful (showing 10% more efficiency than standard blades) – the perfect selection for an FPV racing drone.

X-Speed 280 V2 Functions

Manual mode is great for acrobatics such as flips or rolls and FPV is available for when smooth and fast control is required.

Self-level mode is easier to pilot, let the stick settle centrally and the drone simply levels itself out

Videography is supported by the Arris FPV HD ultralight 700TVL 2.8mm lens digital CCD video camera which takes high quality images and gives very stable performance.
