X-Racer X1 from FPV Model

03.30.2017 UPDATE X Racer X1 already available on the FPV Model website.
03.15.2017 UPDATE the X-Racer X1 is in production. It will be available in about two weeks.

The micro fpv quadcopter market seems to be booming at the moment.
Few days ago FPV Model has announced the X-Racer X1 micro fpv quadcopter.

X-Racer X1This model is still in preproduction but from the pictures that I have got, it looks very similar to the Tiny Whoop.

It will come pre flashed and hopefully preconfigured with the latest betaflight, there is no info on the vtx strength but it is stated that it will be micro 48ch. There is no specific info on the FC that is used yet.
There is no info regarding the receivers that will be used, probably they will release FrSKy, DSM and FlySky similar to the ones used by other manufacturers.

One nice noticeable change is the placement of the camera in the front which may add some additional weight in front which is probably counterbalanced with the battery placement further back. But this saves the camera from crashes and also improves the aerodynamic properties of the model.

The case is available in several different colors.

I will update this post once I have info regarding the release date and more specifics.
