Hi all, Has anybody got the Walkera Furious 215 ?

I have not but it does post some rather impressive spec's while researching this a little. I like the build, it looks rugged at a glance but my two worries would be..

Put the antenna lines inside some straws so they don't get caught up in the prop wash in an impact.
The PDB board extends beyond the support post and onto the arm itself. Trivial worryreally but it 'could' be a point of failure if you were to crack an arm ?

Everything else falls right on the mark. Did you buy one  ?
Fly like your mad at it.

I did buy one LOL. I was having problems getting my Skyzone goggles to hook up to the 8 channel Walkera Fpv signal,i have now switched it to 40 channels and all is good. I am hoping to get into freestyle now and the Walkera is part of my 4 Quad [ freestyle ] squadron. You have a keen eye sir,i also noticed that the antenna could be caught up in prop wash during a crash,but the PCB board possible issue never caught my eye. I am now going to download the software from the website so that I can turn the extra LEDs off and then remove them.  Thanks for your comment TomMorton.

Scrap that idea lol  The software [ Cleanflight ] will not download without me having Google Chrome and so I am not going to bother for the moment. I wonder if I can simply unplug the LEDs without turning them off ? Only one way to find out.

Clean flight is no longer being developed.  Most of that attention had been moved over to betaflight.

Betaflight 10.x is a stand alone application and doesn't require chrome.
