Frame

Furious 215 is the carbon fiber air frame with independent replaceable arms, each measuring 4mm in thickness – low maintenance cost in-case of hard crashes.

ESC & Motors:

The 20A ESCs are easily replaceable should the need arise, as are the motors. The motors are the Walkera WK-WS-28-017 2500kv brushless motors; and the ESC and Motors make it easy to maintain/upgrade. 

Battery:

The official recommend battery is 1300mAh 4s 60C lipo, but according our quadcopter frame size and battery guide, you can also choose 1000mAh-1500mAh, 3s/4s lipo battery; for racing, you can use Tattu 1300mAh 4s R-line.

Camera

The FPV camera itself is a 600tvl Sony SUPER HAD II CCD with integrated mic and low light support, it has an adjustable mount with the angles clearly marked on the side. This is a simple but really cool feature that I really like, not to mention the fact that the camera lens sits behind the sides of the carbon fiber frame so it will be protected in a crash. 

PDB

The Power Distribution Board (PDB) is cut to precision to the shape of the chassis floor. Integrated with On Screen Display (OSD), there is a OSD connector at the bottom of the board to adjust the parameters. 

Receiver and video Transmitter

The RTF bundle also includes a receiver and video transmitter of Walkera’s own design. The receiver is fairly standard, while the video transmitter is a switchable 25mw to 200mw 40 channel unit. The VTX defaults to 25mw on band A, so if you are using FatShark goggles you’ll want to change that.
