Excellent Match With The Best 180 Quadcopter Frame

When I decide to start finding out the best 180 quadcopter frame for racing, I spend a bit of time watching videos and reading personal blogs of experienced pilots. 180 size quadcopter are popular due to it have great fun to fly indoor as well as outdoor, and powerful allow you to perform crazy acro moves. That is why I make this article introduce how to match the best 180 frame and share my select experience on here.

Frist, before you getting to build it, you should know how the components work with each others and which parts of motor / props / battery would be an excellent math with 180 quad frame? That’s very important.

Excellent Match With 180 Quadcopter Frame

I research and test and found that below is a best matching relation between the 180 fpv frame, motor and battery.

The most commonly used mini motors on the 180 quad frame are from 1960kv to 3100kv, such as Sunnysky 1306 3100kv, Cobra 2204 2300KV, EMAX 1806 2300KV and Cobra 2204 1960KV etc.

About props, we tested a few popular propellers on these favourite mini quadcopter motors, and found that we are using 4 inch props with good performance result.

About battery, capacity from 850mah to 1300mah 3s or 4s are available, choosing the high C battery can more power to make more thrust and efficient lifting more weight (camera, led, sticker etc.) for your fpv 180mm.

Testing Thrust data chart with 180 quad frame

1306 3100KV404536910.8172.92.1
1806 2300KV40453196.6105.33.1
2204 2300KV40453616.7107.93.2
2204 1960KV40452845.892.53.3

I used the same lipo 4s and props 4045 carbon with different brands different kv size to test on 180 drone, as you see above chart, all of them work well. I also test the drone with 5 inch (5030) as well as 4 inch. But 5 inch props get more thrust and efficiency when you put the electricity equal to even less than the current which used in 4 inch.

Test results on 180 frame in following comparison table,

Above combination of building 180mm drone, was suggested by experienced pilot Nate. After much research and comparing other 180 quadcopter frames, decide to choose this FRAME 180 as the frame, which is better than other frames, such as Nero 180, Armattan 180, Tweaker 180 etc.

Previously, I posted the article about drone building guide: Main FPV Drone Parts List You Need When You Building 250 FPV Drone, Maybe helpful for you.

Motors, flight controller, Escs, Battery etc, all of them were chose by making well-thought-out decisions based on careful analysis of all factors.
