It’s alright to use creativity and history teaches that without it many of nowadays “comforts” wouldn’t have been here. That said, what were the guys over at Diatone thinking when they decided to place the racer drone’s arms across the frame, making so that the front motor is sitting right in front of the FPV camera?
Adding “insult” to injury, the drone is actually named Diatone 2018 GT-M3 Normal Plus, as if they couldn’t get to a final decision and went with both monikers – because, why not?
Jokes aside, the drone packs some quite interesting hardware, going from the four 1408 4000KV racing brushless motors sitting on a 110mm/170mm wheelbase frame to the integrated 600TVL Camera with a G1.Sniper CCD Sensor.
The Diatone 2018 GT-M3 also features an F4 flight controller, F20HV 4S ESC, built-in OSD and it’s rated with a power of 1344W, 1548W during peak.
