Volantex Ranger 1600 KIT Setup?

I'm looking in to getting the KIT version of this plane but I'm not sure what parts to get, I've put a list together of parts I'm leaning towards but I'm hoping for some reassurances or recommendations:



Servos: MG90S Metal Gear RC Micro Servo - Dimension: 22.8 x 12.2 x 28.5mm - Weight: About 13.4g

Brushless Motor: DYS D2830 1300KV Brushless Motor- Weight: 52g

Flight Stabilization System: Volantex Xpilot AX601 6-Axis Flight Controller Stabilizer

Propeller: Folding Propeller W/Alloy Hub 35mm/3.17mm Shaft 8x4.5 - Weight: 45g ('Might remove top to reduce weight)

Receiver: FrSky G-RX6

ESC: Aerostar RVS 40A Electronic Speed Controller w/Reverse Function 3A BEC (2~4S) - Weight: 36g

Battery: Turnigy Graphene 4000mAh 4S 45C Lipo Pack w/XT90 - Weight: 484g (including wire, plug & case)

Transmitter: I have a HubsanH501F Transmitter from my old Hubsan301F SpyHawk, I'm hoping it will be compatible with this Setup.

This is the FPV equiptment I've chosen:


FPV Camera: Eachine 1000TVL 1/3 CCD 110 Degree 2.8mm Lens Wide Voltage 5-20V Mini FPV Camera NTSC PAL Switchable - Weight: 10.4g

FPV Transmitter: Eachine TX526 5.8G 40CH 25MW/200MW/600MW Switchable AV Wireless FPV Transmitter RP-SMA Female - Weight: 6.8g

FPV Goggles: Eachine EV100 720*540 5.8G 72CH FPV Goggles With Dual Antennas Fan 7.4V 1000mAh Battery For RC Drone

I'd appreciated any recommendations. Thanks.

40A may be a bit over kill depending on your motor and prop combo as well as number of servos you will be pulling.

Battery: Turnigy Graphene 4000mAh 4S 45C Lipo Pack w/XT90 - Weight: 484g (including wire, plug & case)

No this won't work. Hubsan and rebranded Hubsan units have proprietary TX/RX protocols and you can't by the RX separate. For this plane you will need a TX/RX combo of a brand named FrSky (aka Taranis), Spektrum, or Futaba. I recommend going with the brand you can get the most help on in person with where you fly. You will need a minimum 6ch TX and compatible RX. Unless you get a Taranis and mod the RF deck, you can not use brands of RXes across brands of TXes.

This is the FPV equiptment I've chosen:


FPV Camera: Eachine 1000TVL 1/3 CCD 110 Degree 2.8mm Lens Wide Voltage 5-20V Mini FPV Camera NTSC PAL Switchable - Weight: 10.4g

FPV Transmitter: Eachine TX526 5.8G 40CH 25MW/200MW/600MW Switchable AV Wireless FPV Transmitter RP-SMA Female - Weight: 6.8g
- unless you have your HAM (aka Amateur Radio Operator license) you MUST only use 25mW. This will get you good enough range for begining.

FPV Goggles: Eachine EV100 720*540 5.8G 72CH FPV Goggles With Dual Antennas Fan 7.4V 1000mAh Battery For RC Drone


I'd appreciated any recommendations. Thanks.
