My Approach to Quad Review videos:
My review videos will give you an user experience from opening the box to setting up and testing the quad. It is indepth but necessary on the technical side (physical to electronics and flight characteristics) to show you what you can get out of it and as a video instructions manual if you get the quad; it is not my personal opinion or expectation or comparison. Hopefully this gives you more info for your hobby.
The pros and cons are discussed in the videos and I will not list them in the description but I will give you a summary of the findings in the description. I will not hype a quad or talk about possible modifications to give it maximum performance or criticise it based on my own expectations; as every quad will need to be judged on its own set up and flight characteristics and can never be the same with other quads: in other words, Does it fly as is should based on its components and set up? What is the user experience?

Review + Unboxing + Set Up instructions
Note: If a quad flies well LOS, it will fly well FPV provided there is no issues with the FPV vtx and camera. Therefore, Indoor flight test is sufficient to test the flight characteristics of the quad. If weather permits, outdoor flight tests will be conducted. Further, other user experience videos may be made. There will be video playlist set up for each quad.

Description (From Gearbest):
FuriBee X140 is an extraordinary micro FPV racing drone with 4mm thick 3K carbon fiber chassis. Compared with smaller multirotors, it is more powerful, due to the 1306 3100KV brushless motor and 3030 four-blade propeller. Therefore, you can enjoy flying it at a high speed outdoors. In comparison with bigger drones, it features higher maneuverability because of the light weight and small size. More importantly, with the CCD camera, you are sure to be satisfied with the real-time FPV.
● 140mm wheelbase 3K carbon fiber frame with 4mm super thick chassis, extremely resistant to impact
● Popular F3 flight controller with OSD for displaying aircraft name, real-time voltage, flight mode, duration etc.
● Efficient BLHeli – S ESC uses EFM8BB21 and 3-in-1 IC driver and supports DShot digital signals
● 1306 3100KV brushless motor and 3030 four-blade propeller match the bigger frame for outdoor flight
● 600TVL CCD camera, 130-degree FOV, 5.8G 40CH 25mW / 150mW VTX, real-time FPV within 100 – 200m
