Blade/horizon Hobby Inductrix Pro
A quick and nimble FPV quad just right for house racing
The Inductrix FPV Pro is a quick little highperformance micro FPV drone that takes the excitement of racing indoors. This little powerhouse is a blast to fly through the house, and its small size enables it to bounce off the walls without any damage to the drone or walls.
The Inductrix FPV Pro comes out of the box fully assembled and ready to go. Also included in the box is a USB Lipo charger for the 1S 200mah battery. (One recommendation I will make right up front is to get another battery or two because, once you start flying, you will want to stay in the air for as long as you can. It is just way too fun.) While the battery was charging, I started programming the transmitter to the settings outlined in the instruction manual so that, when the battery was ready, I was set to go. One of the significant features of this drone is that it can be programmed using Betaflight, so you can configure the flight controller to match your flying style.
When the battery was done charging, I slid it into the slot on the bottom of the drone and started the binding procedure to get the drone up and running. Now that it was connected to the transmitter, I gave it a short hop to make sure all was good to go. Ready for takeoff!
The FPV camera transmits all the available frequencies we can use here in the United States, and it is easy to change channels. I left it on the channel it was programmed to and switched channels on my goggles until the image appeared. I was now ready to tear up the house with this bird.
With everything ready to go, I took off from my office and started flying around the house. I started in the Angle mode, which is self-leveling and limits the bank angle. This is the mode I recommend that you start out with regardless of your flying skills because it gives you a good feeling for how the quad will react. From there, you can move to Air or Acro modes, both of which progressively offer less self-leveling and fewer angle limitations.
I found the Inductrix Pro to be responsive and quick, especially in confined areas such as a house. It was also easy to fly, even through the tightest of hallways and under chairs. I was impressed at how well the video came through the goggles with very little loss of signal during the flight, and even the interference was less than I expected. The threeminute flight went by way too fast, and I was glad to have another battery ready to go. The second flight was even more fun, and I felt really comfortable flying in and out of small spaces with this drone. I do recommend that you turn off any overhead fans. This drone is quite durable and was able to bounce off the walls and keep flying with no damage to the drone or to the walls.
You can see just how small and compact this drone really is. The battery fits and is held securely in the slot on the bottom of the drone.
THE INDUCTRIX FPV PRO IS A BLAST TO FLY, AND I HAVE BEEN FLYING IT ALMOST EVERY DAY SINCE GETTING IT. IT IS A SOLID FLIER, AND I RECOMMEND IT FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO TRY OUT FPV RACING. This tiny camera has a built-in video transmitter, which does a great job of providing video feed to your goggles.
