New Meow Mode Blade Inductrix Plus FPV

Blade Inductrix FPV Plus RTF Is Awesome

Blade has a new FPV Inductrix out and it fixed some of the shortcomings of their last FPV models

If you have a Blade Inductrix, you probably know that while it's an ok tiny whoop out of the box, it is made so much better with larger motors, a stronger frame and higher current 2.0 battery connectors.

How Cool Not To Do The Walk of Shame When You Crash?

It looks like Blade with their new Inductrix Plus Tiny Whoop, they pulled out all the stops. With a bright red canopy plus an added a feature that could prove to be quite useful. It's called Meow mode or for the more technical name "Flip Recovery Mode." Just like a cat that always lands on its feet, now when your Inductrix FPV lands on its back you just push a button and it flops right back on it's belly and away you go.

Larger 2.0 Battery

The larger 2.0 battery also helps this drone get longer four to six minute flight times. Much nicer than the two to three minute flight times their yellow FPV Inductrix would get unless you did some mods like adding larger batteries and connectors.

One thing you will notice right off, is the hot looking Ferrari red canopy and more streamlined and compact antenna. Instead of just a floppy wire hanging out like on their last few Inductrix quads, the antenna on the red FPV Inductrix looks very nicely finished and compact.

DVR Monitor

This model comes with the Radio and is ready to fly. It also includes a nice Spektrum 4.3" Monitor and has a DVR feature so you even record your flights to an SD card.

Video Transmitter and LED Display

Included is a 32 channel, 25Mw video transmitter, dipole antenna, and a 600 tvl camera with a 140° field of view. The small display is also included and mounts to your transmitter via a bracket.

Beginners will find this setup much easier to use than the googles which can actually cause motion sickness in some people until they get used to them. Sitting down can actually help with this.

8MM Motors Rock!

While this tiny whoop is a little larger and the high performance 8MM motors are still brushed rather than brushless. Their larger size makes this Inductrix fly very nice with added agility and performance especially outdoors.

Tri Color LEDs

The the onboard LEDs can provide useful information both for the 3 flight modes and also to show how much life is left in your batteries so you know when it's time to land. Much nicer than the yellow FPV Inductrix which just fell out of the sky when the batteries got low.

Ready To Fly Transmitter

The ready to fly version comes with the typical cheap Blade radio transmitter. If you already own a decent Spektrum radio like the DX9 Black Edition which has super smooth high quality ball bearing gimbals, you will find flying this Inductrix or any quadcopter so much easier. Just by using this radio vs the cheap BNF controller will help your flying skills greatly improve.

This quadcopter is larger and offer some great improvements. We loved everything about it except it comes at a higher price. The props could have fit a little tighter, although we used the same trick as on our yellow Inductrix. A piece of floss against the shaft keeps them on much tighter.

TIP: An even better trick to keep your props from coming off is to take a small paper clip and lightly coat the end with a little supper glue, put the prop on and spin it around. Then take it off, set it aside and let it dry before you attach it to your motor. Repeat with the remaining 3 props. This will make them nice and tight and keep them a little more balanced than the floss trick.

With everything that's included, the Blade Inductrix FPV Plus RTF is a nice step up for those looking for something a little larger and more powerful to fly both indoors and outside.
