In the Ares Cross­fire, you have a rac­ing quad that has an at­trac­tive price point, comes ready to fly, and only needs a lit­tle time for setup. This is the per­fect quad for new­bie rac­ing pi­lots who want to get in the air right away and start fly­ing with their bud­dies on the week­end. This bird not only is fully as­sem­bled but also comes with a 3S 2200mAh bat­tery, the pre­in­stalled ul­tra­mi­cro 200mW 40-chan­nel 5-band video trans­mit­ter, and 720p high-res­o­lu­tion cam­era with a 120-de­gree field of view. The wide an­gle and qual­ity of the video is right up there with any other racer. With the first cou­ple of flights, you should start out in the sta­bi­liz­ing mode to get the feel of the quad and then turn it down. We found the Cross­fire to be a sta­ble flier in all flight modes, and this thing is pretty quick. It is not the fastest one out there, but its speed is com­pet­i­tive with many of the rac­ers fly­ing at events. Depend­ing on how you set up this bird, you’ll find that it can be a docile fly­ing ma­chine or a re­spon­sive race­horse.
