Unboxing ZMR250 Build Kit

Instead of trying to compile my own parts list I ordered a ZMR250 build kit from FPVModel. For my first build I wanted to make sure the components that I used would be compatible so I went with this ARF (almost ready to fly) kit from FPVModel. If you are interested in building this quad here is the Link.

ZMR250 Build Guide

Welcome to my ZMR 250 Mini H frame Quadcopter Build guide. I have been flying DJI quadcopters for almost 2 years now. Searching around I began to notice the fpv quadcopter videos and got hooked. As I started researching fpv quads I quickly found out how tough it is to get started in the hobby. It gave me the idea to create a ZMR250 build guide as I built mine.

There isn’t a definite guide where to start your build. You need to buy all the parts solder everything together and hope that the thing flys. I also watched a bunch of different build videos on YouTube. However I discovered that everybody used different parts and I wasn’t sure which to go with.

After my research I found that the ZMR 250 build would be a good starter quad frame to build. I wanted to build this website to post my findings and my ZMR250 build process. (Be aware that there are many clones of the ZMR 250 available that are not carbon fiber from what I read stay away from those the one from FPVModel is Carbon Fiber for sure)

I am no fpv expert and don’t claim to be but I hope I can help some other beginners like me. Feel free to comment any suggestions to the build. I will probably be doing a lot of searching for help anyway!
