So you can record the videos in the goggles and if that was your first quad, it would be really sweet. It is a four inch fpv race quad, with return to home, gps and we’re, giving that away to one lucky subscriber so make your comment. First thing you have to do is subscribe, make your comment and for fun. Just let us know where you’re from today’s review. We’Re going to check out a couple different things here: we’re going to fly this quad. This is from avant quads. You can check these guys out on quads.com down below, and you can pick up one of these for about 228 dollars without the rx on there. When you add rx, it’s, going to add a little more cost to it, 14 for an x7 plus and an extra 32 dollars for the crossfire nano one. Here i was having a ball. This quad, i originally flew the ab03 and this one’s the 3.5, with the cadx baby, retell version and brother hobby motors. I mean this thing is super fast, super well tuned and an alternative to something out there, like the the other 3.5 that we reviewed on the channel like the emacs baby, hawk hd, and this one’s great, because it’s analog he’s, also coming out with an hd version Of this, so if you wanted to have an avo with hd on there, if you’re a dji guy, you can also do that and really important release that came out last week right about, i believe, i’ve maybe got this last wednesday or so cadecs released a starlight Version of their polar vista combo – you can get this with the vista and you’ll be able to fly your dji quad at night.
This guy is crazy. Super awesome. It looks great at night if you want to fly near dusk or as the sun’s going down and it gets dark. You can still continue to fly with this camera it’s crazy. It has brightness contrast, adjustment, you can bring up the color ratio and the saturation and bring it way up. It’S amazing that you can see green grass at night with this camera it’s. Just it blows me away. People have been asking for a starlight camera for a dji system for a long time, um run cam is also coming out with their own version of a dji camera, so very interesting to see both the two top companies coming out with their own licensed versions of Dji cameras: this is really cool, so this is it just say on here licensed version, so yeah i’m, not making that up. It says licensed version. So cadex is licensed with dji to be able to create these products. For you guys and it’s, pretty cool. You can get this in a few different ways. You can get it with the vista. You can get it the camera alone, which is cool, and i have the camera alone version. It also comes with a really nice ufo connector antenna here that will come off the vista. It looks like a different design here, a little thinner which is cool and it’s tall enough for a little long range action and the camera is here, it’s a little stout and it’s silver and it plugs in just like any other catx vista air module camera.
Just snaps right into place and then there’s a little screw. That goes over top of the metal piece that goes down and there you have it that’s that’s how easy it would be to hook this camera up, so no soldering needed you can just plug it in and go so. This one is going to be super popular it’s about the same price as something like the the nebula or maybe even a little cheaper. So this is, this is going to be a big thing for guys that want to fly near or after dark, or i think this will be a great camera coming up. This fall it’s, crazy, that it came out in the summertime um because, really when you have those overcast days that’s, when this camera is going to be the juice, the juicy juice to have this winter it’s going to be great for overcast days. So without further ado, though let’s go out like we always do, we’ll we’ll fly this 3.5 from my guy over at avant quads and we’ll. See what this bad boy is all about, expect some really fun flying with this one and a really nice tune. Here we go Music Applause, Applause, Music, Applause, Music, so Music Applause, Music, Applause, Music, all right guys welcome back from the flight test. I think the video, as always it’s you know, proves in the video how well the tune looks on this one. This one is flying really good and it is a 4s beast.
It is flying in ghf, f4 aio flight controller with 20 amp uscs on there 121 grams, not bad that’s. Without a battery, you can also put a little dk’s gopro on this bad boy. I think it’s a little bit too small for a gopro or something, but with a 4s 650 that’ll get us up to 181 grams, not bad and with the 850 that’s going to get us up to 219 and my favorite battery with this quad getting me well Over five minutes flight time is the 4s 1100. This gnb 4s 1100 is a great for 3.5 inch, so that even still puts me at 211 and i still have room to put a little action camera on there, whether it’s, a gopro, dk’s gopro or maybe like a insta360 go 2 or even the original go On this would be pretty awesome, i’ve flown the go, the original go on the avo three engine, it’s no problem, but all under 250 grams, which is pretty sweet. So the quad itself is all 3k carbon fiber from a guy right, avon and they come by and fly. They don’t come ready to fly, unfortunately, for you guys, but i will say that all of his quads come to me ready to fly out of the box and they’re usually really nicely tuned, and this little guy is no exception. I mean the the tune on here. Is really really nice, it has. It even has a built in via heli rpm filters already set up on here, so it is running running super super smooth, the brother hobby motors on here, 1504.
5 motors and let’s, see if i can just zoom in here. So you guys can see those real quick brother hobby. If you don’t know it they’re, like some of the top motors out there for fpv racers, just spin that all the way around 1504.5 and that’s, usually what we do for a 3.5 inch is the 1500 series and ’50 kvs and that’s good for 4s. We got three bolts on the bottom. We have three millimeter beveled replaceable arms on this quad as well tpu front mountain. That is super super protective. Looking there it’s got a little venting on the side and from the bottom hiding that baby rattle. What do you guys think about that baby or toe? I think that thing looks pretty good i’m. A big fan of that. I like this one better way better than the ant. I can’t stand the ant camera. I think that one’s a little bit low resolution and from the side you can see the stack. You see that aio down bottom that’s, your 20 amp ese’s f4 flight controller. There look how nicely soldered those eses are nice and shiny there up top. We have that little vtx setup with our rush cherry in the back that’s, the rush cherry right hand circular polarized antenna, and that is just mounted to these two standoffs. I also put another zip tie. He actually zip tied it off here, which some of these companies don’t do that they leave this thing hanging back here, but it’s really important that you zip tie the main vbat wire coming off the escs, because if you ever eject a battery and it gets pulled, It can break the tabs off of the esc and that’d be really bad for your 401 esc because you there’s no way to fix that.
You’Ve got your micro usb port on the left hand, side right here. It has a four bolt top plate release as well, and i like that nice flat top. So that means that i can run battery on top or battery on bottom. Whichever way you want to use it it’s around a millimeter and a half top plate, though so, if you have a really hard crash, you could pull that off, but it does have four holes up top as well for something else. If you wanted to add something else up here, not sure why you would where you want to do a hanging suspended mount there, you can also do that, but that’s pretty cool and a lot of 3d printed parts here. You also get in the box a couple of extra arms which a lot of these companies have not been doing recently. I believe in years past, like the eachine wizard came with some extra, like maybe one extra arm, which was pretty nice but that’s, pretty sweet custom avant strap. This is 200 millimeter long. It will accommodate that 1100 battery you’ve got three millimeter bottom plates sandwiched in between. Here with the replaceable arms, which is sweet and it has a metal buckle, which i love, that also is good stuff xt30. Here and overall, i think you know this is a great flying quad it. You know, honestly anything you buy from this guy it’s it’s it’s gon na fly great um, he’s kind of like one of the underdogs out there that really doesn’t get enough press.
Really, i think in our community i feel like avon, should be more talked about um. He has a whole series of quads too, from like two inch frames, all the way up to like seven inch, quads so um you can get three and four and five and six and seven inch frames from him um. You can also get a ton of different binding flies and nick nick burns and all those guys have reviewed these a while back, go check out. My avo3 review also a really wild ride and that’s the one where i was flying the insta360 go on there. If you want to see a little smoother footage, but i think overall i am pretty happy with this and i’m very excited about the polar vista kits coming out. You know by the way, also you can get this camera alone with the vista or with an air module, so this also works with an air module. So if you already have an air module or a vista just order, the camera only and grab one of these. For those darker days or if you want to fly in a parking lot at night, you could do some freestyle at night or maybe even some night racing, which would be super cool.
