New FuriBee X215 Pro FPV Racer Released
FuriBee has released a new 215mm brushless FPV racer — the X215 Pro. It is currently only available as a FrSky kit although a PNP kit is also available for those who want to use other radios. At a glance, the Pro appears to be the most advanced FPV racer FuriBee currently offers.
It’s got a lot of impressive features such as the pagoda VTx antenna which is advertised as capable of transmitting FPV up to 2km with omnidirectional coverage. Then there’s the camera resolution that boasts a whopping 1200TVL. Now that is not something you commonly see on sub-250mm brushless FPV racers.
If that 1200TVL resolution isn’t enough, the Pro even comes with a GoPro Session mount for pilots who demand better image quality and the ability to record videos on the camera itself. All that goodness does come at a steep price though and the Pro currently sells for $199.99 in FrSky kit at GearBest. The PNP version is available at $189.99.

Propulsion on the Pro is handled by a 4-in-1 BLHeli — S 30A ESC, 2206 2600kV brushless motors and 5048 three-blade propellers. The ESCs can handle 2S to 6S batteries and support DShot signals. The fiberglass-reinforced propellers appear to feature a new airfoil design which is said to be a lot more efficient than earlier 3-blade designs.
With all that power, the Pro is equipped with a robust carbon fiber frame needed to withstand hard impacts and crashes should they happen. The carbon fiber motor arms have a thickness of 4mm and the fuselage features two pieces of aluminum with a thickness of 5mm. Although partly naked, the frame should provide sufficient crash protection for internal parts such as the flight controller and FPV camera.
The flight controller on the Pro is the latest Holybro Kakute F4 with integrated OSD and Betaflight pre-flashed. There is also an LED light at the rear with integrated buzzer. Overall, the Pro was designed purely for speed and performance. It’s a good option for pilots looking to buy a ready-to-fly brushless FPV racer that can be used as a base for serious FPV racing. All that it needs is a few upgrades here and there and some fine tuning and it’s ready for some fast-paced racing.
