Are 3″ Racing drones the new king class? (HGLRC XJB-145 shopping list)

Are 3 “racing drones the new premier class? (HGLRC XJB-145 shopping list)

Why are 3 “Racequads so interesting in Germany?

In Germany (and in some other countries) there is a magic number: 250g. Drones and quads over 250g are subject to the strictest conditions in Germany . Copters under a quarter of a kilo (and the HGLRC XJB-145 is one of them) are considered toys and it’s so much easier to fly legally.

Under 250g but strong enough for a GoPro

What makes the 3 “class but especially interesting: It is possible to assemble a 4S Racer here, which likes to fly its 130 Km / h or mount a GoPro Session and shoot in incredible quality.

Ok, admittedly – with a GoPro it is very close to the 250g, maybe you have to counter something with the battery. But it’s possible! What I’ll do: I’ll get a Möbius mini camera – the quality is not as high as in the GoPro session, but it is much easier. So I have all options open.

The best 3″ racing drone

There are 2 hot contenders for the title “The Best 3 Inch Racing Drone”. After the  HGLRC XJB-145 came out the  Diatone GT M3 , which flies an incredible 150 Km / h . A <250g drone !!! Which is better now I believe in the eye of the beholder. The 3 “class is definitely the most interesting class for Germany and other regulated countries and the two models are simply UNBELIEVABLE in terms of performance, quality, and speed.
