We have the darwin fpv 79 uh three inch race drone. I ended up getting two of these. I got one on the bench right there and i got one here: i’m. Just gon na show you what comes in the box, so we’re gon na do a little unboxing at the same time, Music, so let’s open it up, see what comes inside so that’s. What you get in the box. You get some props! You get some twist ties a couple battery straps and a darwin fpv sticker, so let’s just pull it out quickly. Take a quick look at it. I got two of these because they were pretty cheap and uh. Guys were saying that they’re not too bad, so there it is it’s got a caddix eos v2. I don’t think you can see that that that’s, the camera i’m hoping it’s all right, it’s got a little mini stack. Get your esc’s here. You got your vtx sitting on top and your flight controller right in the middle there’s. Your antenna, construction of it, looks pretty good it’s an x frame it’s got removable the arms look, pretty thick it’s got removable arms. So if you do crash it, you can probably replace the arm. It’S got nice big beefy, looking 1507 motors, darwin branded magnets feel very strong. 1507 2400 kv there’s. The darwin logo also comes with the instructions or the layout of the uh. The circuit boards, the flight controller, the vtx and uh esc all in one escs, so that’s, pretty nice nice package, it’s pretty cheap i’ll, put a link in the description, forget the exact price again now: it’s 100 100 and something bucks it’s like a hundred dollars around There, a little more so okay, so let’s just check the weight.
We have uh our scale zeroed out in grams and it’s 147 grams, with no battery and let’s throw in what i’m gon na fly it on 450 milliamp hour, tattoo 3s battery see what that brings. It up to so you’re up to 188 grams, guys still well within the 250 gram limit, and if you want to go up to a bigger battery with more punch, you can go up to well this one’s 650 milliamp hour i’m. Sure you can go even more with those uh those low kv motors, with this 4s battery 650 milliamp hour ovonic. We are at 217 grams guys so that’s well within the limit, all right, so let’s move on to the uh flight test, all right, guys, good stuff. All right guys, we are out finally outside with the uh darwin 79, completely stock. I got a 3s battery on there 450 milliamp hour, it’s uh, pretty weak for this, for this uh build it’s kind of a small battery i’m, not very good. At flying line of sight anymore, i’ve gotten worse since i started flying fpv, okay, so let’s take it out for a little line of sight. Flight guys seems to fly all right come over here. Music turn it in my flying is not good line of sight anymore. I’Ve forgotten how to do it it’s very, very windy. Today, guys, oh boy, the wind’s pushing it around. Okay man, she hauls butt on 3s Music, i’m.
A little scared, let’s do a punch out you ready i’m going to do a punch out now. Let’S bring it down jury to look up real, quick. Well there she comes whoa all right, let’s, take this for a flight let’s bring it back. That was fun. I should fly line of sight a little more oh little. More often, i need more practice for sure all right guys so uh let’s uh put the goggles on i haven’t flown in a few days, guys so i’m a little rusty there. We go let’s go through here. I feel more comfortable flying fpv. Now as funny as that is Music. Let’S. Do a little punch out Music, nice, okay, let’s go over here. The wind seemed to die down, which i’m very happy about let’s try a little flip nice. Very nice guys do a little flyby, 3.5 volts i’m going to switch the battery out and then let’s get back out there. Let’S bring it in for hello cameraman, bring it in here, Music, oops we’ll, just give it a little drop all right, guys, let’s fire. Another battery in and we’ll take it for a little blast. All right here we go let’s put it in uh air mode, Music and off. We go hello. Nice, fresh battery Applause go over here over the school, getting a little brave a little bit of breakup on the vtx. There, i’m gon na go fly over this area. My cameraman probably can’t see anything.
I don’t have the camera tilt it up too much. So i can fly it a little bit slower, which is nice. I love this thing man. This is such an awesome quad. I will put a link in the description guys, but this thing is very cheap. I mean if you were buying a brand name. One of these – and i mean i think darwin fpv – should be a brand name, because i really like this thing. They don’t have a lot of uh offerings. They have a whoop, they have a five inch and let’s do a little flip here. They have a five inch and they have this three inch. Darwin 79, and this thing is an absolute bargain. It’S like 110 canadian and i think it’s like 100 american or like 95 bucks or 85 bucks, or something it’s really really awesome. Getting a little out of my element, there got ta watch where i’m going here. I am still a newbie. I wonder if i can do a power roll Music. Well, it wasn’t really a power loop. That was more like a flip but anyways back to what i was saying for the money. You really can’t go wrong with this uh darwin 79. I have a few of them and i’m really happy that i got them it’s a really really nice, quad! Really nice Music come back in here, Music let’s! Do a little flip. Show you a roll there let’s do one more punch out up close.
You can see this is only 3s and this is kind of a weak battery up. We go and a little dive very nice. I actually like where i have the camera set too. I i might change it a little bit and i think i’m going to change the vtx to 200 milliwatts because it is breaking up a little bit on me, Music, pretty good picture. I have to say from this camera i mean if i had my fat shark goggles on it would be even better really liking this. So, like i said guys, i will put a link in the description. Let’S take it down here, yeah. You know what i need to change my uh camera angle a little bit, so i can get some more speed and see i’m looking at the ground there when i’m trying to go fast, it’s nice for cruising, though this camera angle, it’s nice, for just putting around So anyways let’s do one more punch out Music and then we’ll come in for a little whoa Music. All right, let’s bring it back in for a landing and we’ll. Give you the final thoughts, which i think you know they’re going to be pretty good Music. All right not the best landing in the world, but it is what it is guys so. Let’S have my cameraman. Look at me, hey guys, so we had a great time with this uh darwin 79. I want to thank my cameraman.
His name is sammy he’s. The best cameraman in the world and pick yourself up one of these darwin 79s. You won’t regret it not at all. It’S uh it’s got a little bit more weight, so you can fly it on a windy day. It’S got nice big beefy motors. I can’t wait to try this thing on 4s uh that’s. Just with this tiny little 3s battery here, 450 milliamp, you could go higher, you can go 650, the camera, as is it’s a caddix uh eos v2 it’s got a great picture um. It looks much better in the goggles, so if you’re wondering you know it doesn’t, look that great in the uh fpv video it’s got a little micro stack there, so 200 milliwatts vtx, so that’s. It guys hope you enjoyed this video like and subscribe. I’Ll leave a link in the description where you can pick up.
