I finally caved! I have wanted a ZMR250 for quite a while, I liked the Robocat but it was just too much extra. Again I went for dead cheap. Before I get into my parts list, let’s talk skids. I was going to buy some but they want £5-8 in some cases and that seems ridiculous when the frame is only £7!! Instead I am going to use some excess plastic laying around, then to secure them onto the frame and add a lil cushioning I will use Sugru! OMG I love this stuff!
Aight so parts, I went for cheapest but from good sellers and ones I have used before like TomTop. I bought all from HK since the UK costs are £40 more!!
ZMR250 Frame – aka. QAV250, H250
UPDATE: Though these did work quite well, I would recommend getting emax ESC’s separately and some GoolRC motors. They are far better quality and only a few quid more.
Motor + ESC – Actually cheaper than buying separately
1806 2400KV Brushless Motor
Simonk 12A ESC
2 pairs (4 motors) cost around £23, very nice quality.
Naze32 rev 6 – £12.59
PDB – Go for this one, the big PDB board is nice but it restricts you for where the wires can be places. Having it all central is a bit easier.
Not exactly necessary but handy
This is a PDB for the ZMR250
Will fit into the frame correctly.
DO NOT BUY, these turned out to be shit and do not fit in the slightest to any hole on the zmr250 frame. I am including it to show which one was so crappy lol
10 pairs – (1 CCW and 1 CW in each pair)
I bought some green and red for variety.
2 x Battery ** Well fuck they don’t post to Ireland now, still have a set coming though **
1500mAh 3S 35C 11.1V with XT60
It costs £8< for a single battery.
These batteries last about 7min so two is well worth it.
