Walkera Runner 250

 

Project Log Review

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 addition 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.  LiPo Beep here..
