The URUAV UZ80 isn’t a particularly special drone. It is a hand-sized FPV drone that you have to build yourself. It is basically a tiny whoop with slightly larger props and no ducts. It isn’t high-powered as you can only fly it on a 1S battery, but this little quad is an absolute blast to fly.
The UZ80 is a DIY kit. You have to put the drone together, but there isn’t any soldering involved. It is actually pretty simple and you can get it running in under 30 minutes. You’ll still have to double-check things in Betaflight and I had to reverse some motors in BL_Heli, but that is easy enough.
The UZ80 is an ultralight FPV toothpick. I love it as a beginner drone for anyone learning how to fly FPV. It is quiet and you can learn to fly without disrupting your neighbors. It handles crashes quite well due to its light size.
The UZ80 uses an AIO Crazybee F4 Lite flight controller. It has a built-in 25 mwVTX and mine had the FrSky receiver built-in as well. The camera is the Runcam Nano 3. The motors are 0802, 19,000 KV brushless motors pushing 40 mm props. It is just about 20 grams without the battery. URUAV recommends 250-650 mah 1S batteries and claims you can get about 4 1/2 minutes on a 300 mah and 6 1/2 minutes on a 450 mah. My results were about half that, but I’m also flying on pretty old and used 1S batteries. It also comes with a solid pin PH 2.0 connector.
Overall this little quad is a lot of fun to fly. It doesn’t feel like a 5″ and you can’t fly it on windy days. However, there is something about being able to fly FPV on something so small and not have to worry about disturbing people around you.
