AuroraRC QAV105 2″ Brushless Review, Unboxing & Flight Test

A speedy little 2″ brushless which will take a 2s or 3s, have a great specification and even includes the excellent RunCam Swift Mini CCD camera, we were looking forward to this one!

Micro brushless quads are constantly rising in popularity, particularly the 3″ class but the 2″ class is just as popular with indoor and nil-wind racing/freestyle. This little quad from AuroraRC is solidly built and whilst it has a few issues, none are complex to resolve, especially at the current bargain price.

It is also at this time only costs $90/£75, almost half the original price and a bargain considering that it includes the Runcam CCD camera which alone costs around £30/$40.

Where to buy…

The AuroraRC QAV105 is available from GearBest at this exclusive 31% discounted price, in addition a few great 3″ quads and accessories are also listed and worth taking a look at!

The positives…

❍ Features genuine RunCam Swift CCD camera, great quality
❍ Nicely built with a simple design, easy to repair
❍ Weighs only 62g, very lightweight for a brushless in this size class
❍ Flies well on 2s, would scream on 3s!

The negatives…

❍ Doesn’t include a buzzer but it can be added
❍ Expensive at over £130/$150, largely because of RunCam
❍ FC USB port is fragile, be careful when using it
❍ VTX antenna isn’t hot-glued and so becomes loose
❍ Limited camera tilt available due to camera mount
