As we all know, crashing goes hand in hand with drone racing. Of course, there’s always a little more crashing when you’re learning, and that’s where the RISE RXD250 comes in. Made out of carbon-fiber and foam, the layout is open yet still protected. All the key components are surrounded by foam, plastic, or carbon fiber, so there isn’t much risk of damaging anything expensive. For a drone that is built to withstand more crashes and hits, we were impressed with how well the RXD250 handled. It’s easy to fly and the controls are smooth, but it still has the juice when you want it.
