Drone racing has become the newest hot sport eclipsing street racing, F1 and Nascar in interest, and the Walkera Runner 250 has been there from the beginning. Drone racing is wildly popular as it doesn't take a lot to get your track setup, and it's tons of fun to fly in first person view (FPV). There has also been a large influx of new drone racing clubs, and you can be sure that at most club meets, the Walkera Runner 250 RTF will make an appearance in more than one pilot's hands.

Walkera Runner 250 Ready To Fly Racing Drone

The Walkera Runner 250 is one of the first racing drones that was both a high performance drone, but at a cost that was affordable to hobbyists and novices that were intrested in the sport. The Walkera Runner doesn't skimp on features for the low price either.

Walkera Runner 250 RTF Assembly

One of the best things about the Walkera Runner is that it was designed with a beginner in mind. Each part, speed controllers, FPV Transmitter, receiver and so on were designed to be literally just plugged in to an integrated distribution board - no soldiering required to assemble. This gives the Walkera a clear advantage over the competitors in that the drone is easy to maintain and repair between races! Putting the drone together takes roughly two hours for the average novice, and is ready to run as soon as the battery is charged. Another plus is that the Runner 250 is truly ready to fly as soon as the battery is charged as well.

Runner 250 Design

The drone has a full carbon fiber frame for both lighter weight and durability. It's both compact and space saving , and will stand up to a few crashes. Speaking of crashes, the Walkera Runner 250 is also the drone that has the most spare (and upgrade) parts available, so it's easier to find replacements for broken parts when needed.

What Comes In The Box?

There are many ways that the Runner 250 can come -- from frame-only to a fully RTF version that even includes the headgear. Most retailers will sell the drone with everything you need to get flying, but not the FPV goggles.
