A ZMR 250 that ain't afraid of no little rain drops. Or snow flakes. Or puddles.

I decided that I couldn't let a few rain drops get in the way of my flying, so I bought some epoxy and some Corrosion-X and set out to waterproof my ZMR 250. I started by putting some clear heatshrink on my ESCs, depinned D4R-II, VTX, COB LED bar, and FPV camera, then used the epoxy to seal the ends. I added an IRLazd Screwball antenna (which is already sealed) then sprayed Corrosion-X on the FC, PDB, motor bearings, and XT60 connector. I strapped my waterproof GoPro Session to it and did a little rainy day freestyle for the maiden: rain maiden
Then I took it in the snowy forest the next day:

The only thing that warms the bench is the occasional ESC fire :)

It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..
