Synopsis: The 250 Runner has been in test the last 5 months. Designed by the racers for the racers. The Runner 250 also
incorporates the unique, latest Walkera modular component design to make
assembly fast, easy and upgradable. Take a pit stop to change a perfectly
optimized 144mm prop in 7 seconds! Package with the popular Devo 7, a
professional 7 channel radio also known as the universal radio that supports
Deviation multiple protocols.
First Impressions: The Runner 250 brings us back to an old school quad,
no GPS, no gimbal. So if you are expecting Position Hold, try the next
size up x350 Premium with dual GPS. If you have only flown DJI, get
ready to learn how to fly a quadcopter. The Runner 250 is agile, and
flipping is easy with the dual mode settings.
Tip: You may want to place a Velcro beneath your
LiPo onto the plate to prevent your LiPo from slipping, in
to the strap already included. When you strap it over, that will press the
beneath velcro against the plate. Avoid a rookie mistake, by not securing
your LiPo, on impact, you will destroy your camera and osd, if your LiPo is not
secured. Some pilots choose to place the LiPo beneath the plate, there is
just enough room, which
ever way you choose, take the preventive measures.
Pre-flight Tests: Remove your propellers, arm the Runner
250, throttle up
and down, invert it - throttle up and zero down and up again. This will
ensure your system is fully functioning and ready for the race. Note,
it will not shut down or disarm, at zero throttle, please be careful, it is a
racing quad, not a drone. Remember to disarm when done flying.
The Runner basic OSD is optional, and not necessary, we prefer to
just put a $4 LiPo alarm, when you can hear it, than to read off a voltage on screen.
It is easy to miss the lights around corners. Set it to 3.6v per cell to alert you.
