280 Quad Racer
Rigid carbon-fiber arms with robust aluminum double-supports makes this fully assembled racer light but also incredibly tough. LED indicators help visually identify your current flight mode whether Normal, Altitude Hold, or Acro Mode. Powerful 2804 motors with eight degrees forward tilt give you the aerodynamic performance edge. The streamlined, orange-accented carbon-fiber frame, combined with Hyperion’s advanced controller design, will drive your Vengeance racer past the competition, with stylish design and color-appeal
Why the forward motor angle?
To go fast forward your props must be pointed forward. With that simple idea in mind Hyperion went on to pursue perfection. Testing revealed an 8° angle to be ideal, making the transition to fast forward flight quicker, while reducing induced drag on the airframe to a minimum, for the highest acceleration and top speed.
The Vengeance accepts almost any Receiver
Our expertly modified flight controller is compatible to be used with standard PPM receivers, or single-wire solutions such as S-Bus, Horizon Spektrum™ Satellite Compatible, and Hyperion Receivers.
PWM is recommended.
SBUS and PPM don’t support gimbal control.
