New to the market is this fully featured 100 class racing quadcopter, equipped with 4-in-1 speed controller board, inbuilt VTX incorporated into the F3 Omnibus flight controller which also provides the configurable BetaFlight OSD.

“ASUAV F100 with two solid aluminum boards, is an outstanding brushless UAV dedicated to indoor racing. It has a highly integrated flight control system – the F3 flight controller is connected to the 4-in-1 BLHeli – S 10A ESC. In addition, the 5.8G 48CH 25mW video transmitter has been integrated to the flight controller, making it even more compact and lighter. You can also take advantage of DShot600 digital signals to gain the superior and accurate control of the multicopter. “

Unfortunately missing from the impressive specification is a buzzer but the FC does have capacity for one and the terminals are nicely exposed for the addition.

The stand-out impressive specification is its weight at only 50g, making it one of the lightest 2″ brushless quadcopters currently available on the market.
