    Darkmax 220 BNF WITH FRSKY
    At the beginning I had to advertise FC with a square buzzer. After about 1.5 meat I received a new FC with a square buzzer but in a newer version ('v3') ... unfortunately, Quad also fell from the sky. Then I decided to try the ESC settings from this video https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showpost.php?p=39192484&postcount=1734 In my case it helped, DarkMax began to fly normally!!! :) Here is the topic of the unfortunate DarkMax https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2962595-Furibee-DarkMax-220-The-Ultimate-Furibee-2xx-size-%28review-work-in-progress%29 I did not enjoy myself for a long time, after the first day of trouble-free flying my camera broke down :( Props: Very light 220mm Good performance Good engines

    SUPER DEAL SUPER KWAD!!!
    This is one amazing quadcopter!! For what you can purchase one for now you HAVE TO GET ONE!! Super efficient with PLENTY of power 2505 2550KV motors and the Flash 5152 X 3 props this thing is a 100 mph machine! I have yet to only fly it around out in the front yard but intend on getting it up to the fly field where I can actually see these wicked top speeds in some straight line runs that I've heard it will do! Just from what I've played with it I can see it's got plenty of get up! And it's really hard to beat black on black I have to say! This Gear Best bargain is both a beauty and a beast and awesome at both and WHAT A VALUE!!
    Suggestion
    I simply don't have much I can say bad about this one really?!! The only thing I could mention is that the instruction manual is wrong when it tells you that both PPM and SBUS UARTS are the same UART, that is NOT right, and I did spend a little bit of time trying to figure out why my receiver showed bound but my radio had no effect on the quad nor was in the receiver tab of the confiurator!! So I actually took the thing totally apart down to the flight controller and LOOKED for myself for the VTX was covering it up. I saw that the SBUS UART is NOT the same UART as the instructions tells you to select in Betaflight ports tab!! That is the only issue I've had with the Furybee Dark Max other than that it has been a real winner for me!!

    DarkMax 220
    So much fun you will get hooked.My Son (16) an I got this drone after building UAV futures $99 build. I would suggest that that is a good route. The build allows you to understand the parts and how to put them together. You are going to break the Quad so you will need to know how to fix them. The DarkMax is a super Drone. High-speed 120KPH plus and handles very nicely. We have finally killed it but it took a while summer of high-speed flights and crashes. We will get another frame and rebuild the parts onto another frame. I don't think it matters how tough the parts are, if your challenging yourself you're going to crash. Really great fun though.

    Honest Review
    Flies perfectly with stock tune 11.5 minutes on an 1800mAh 4S. 5-6S capable Power and fun Fairly good picture from camera Good video reception Impeccable soldering Has buzzer Has extra props Lock Tight™ on most screws Instruction card Has lens cap Has extra receiver wires Has prop nut wrench Has nylock prop nuts Has extra motor screws Has rubber battery pad
    Suggestion
    I hear a lot of people having problems. It has to be taken apart completely to change camera settings. Sharp carbon cuts battery strap Very thin around screw holes Very close to touching around buzzer Unbalanced prop nut Narrow FOV lens Battery wire too long Motor wires not tied down No electrolytic on input Frame locknut nylon not grabbing screw Cable ties provided instead of Battery Strap Loose ESC standoff

    What a great buy :)
    I just saw the price for the complete build and decided to buy it. Delivery time +-13 days, everything without problem. When I opened package I saw faulty buzzer, but I gave it a chance, connected orange dsm sbus with 4S lipo and went to the field.No problem at all, good PID, everything worked as good as it can be possible :)+Great build+on 4S a lot of power+Nice looking+Durability
    Suggestion
    - battery straps. I had to change them, carbon just cut them off

    Outstanding
    Holy smokes! This quad is awesome. Nice durable frame and good motors. It’s a real thrill to fly. Very easy to set up and flies perfectly out of the box. Smooth flying and has more than enough power on just a 4s battery. Can handle up to a 6s !!!Overall, this is the best deal on a 5” quad that you can find. Attached a photo of how to connect the power and ibus wires from my Flysky receiver. Works perfectly.
    Suggestion
    Camera is very low quality and adjusting the settings is a real pain in the a$$

    FPV racing Drone
    Good price for a bind and fly Quad. Flew with stock PIDS out of the box. Build quality is good, carbon frame is strong. Flight controller with video transmitter and 4 in 1 esc's are well protected. LEDS are bright for line of sight. 2 sets of 3 bladed props. Like the style and looks of frame.
    Suggestion
    Stopped working after a few flights. Flight controller and video transmitter won't power on after a few flights. Had to replace video transmitter antenna for better video reception. The receiver was for a micro type quad, replaced with a longer range receiver. Video camera lens not well protected from impacts, sticks out the front on the body.

    An amazing drone for the preicepoint
    I bought this drone a few months ago on a flash sale, it was my firt pre-built drone. It came as described and it worked right out of the box. To this day it´s actually been an amazing drone to fly around, it flies smoothly and the F4 board with integrated OSD is really helpful so you dont have to spend any more time, effort and money in order to be able to have information diplayed on your goggles in real time. Over all it has performed very well and it has been a really good purchase from my point of view.

    Thing is just insane
    For the money, wow. I custom build my own drones and performance wise this thing is a shocker when it's on sale. If I did not like buying my own, I'd be very content with the darkmax. Please adjust the settings in betaflight and your radio before flying, just google it or youtube it and there is a bunch of good stuff out there.
    Suggestion
    None so far.

    Awesome
    This is a great 5” quadcopter. It is well built with good solder joints. The frame has a nice design and can take some serious abuse. Motors are DYS branded and good quality. This machine is insanely fast on 4S and it’s a rocket on 6s. Best bang for your buck for a racing drone. I hope they come back in stock soon so I can buy another one.
