Upgrades and replacement parts for you ZMR250 or QAV250 frame
The ZMR250 is one of the most proven and tested fpv racing frames around. It was one of the first designs of the new generation FPV drones and with several upgrades it’s still very popular. Even though it’s one of my early frames I still find myself bringing it to the airfield every time I go out to fly.
The great this about fpv racing is that you can upgrade or change almost every part of your quad and still fly it. That’s good news since crashes and hard landings are unfortunately inevitable when you are flying FPV. Even if your quad/drone doesn’t break you will probably reach a point where you want to upgrade some parts to increase the performance like speed, agility or handling. I’ve smashed my ZMR250 frame into concrete and asphalt several times resulting in both broken and chipped arms. Luckily there’s replacements to buy.
I’ve gathered a list of parts that you can use to upgrade your ZMR250 or QAV250 frame with.

This list can also be used as a build list if you are planning to build either a ZMR250 or QAV250 racing quad. I will keep updating it with more parts aswell as FPV cameras and receivers.
