    RCUniverse.com - Dromida Vista UAV

    By: Geoff Barber

    Is there anyone out there that didn't love the Dromida Ominus FPV? Released early on in 2015, the Ominus FPV quickly became a huge success. Why? Because it was the first of its kind - a multi-rotor that was nearly indestructible, AND it had an HD FPV camera pre-installed! Not only was it tough, but you could now fly the Ominous through FPV! So, drawing on what they learned with the Ominus FPV, the Vista FPV was born. Dubbed as the 'bigger brother', the Vista FPV touts the same performance and indestructible nature as the Ominus FPV, in a slightly larger size! One of the best features of the Vista FPV is that, like its smaller sibling, it arrives ready to fly with nothing else to purchase!

    A new ergonomic transmitter is included with the Vista FPV. While retaining some of its game controller feel, the 2.4 gHz transmitter has a layout resembling a more traditional style. The new transmitter still has the same great features as the original, including the flight mode and flip buttons. Equipped with two sticks for directional control will help any pilot take command of the Vista!

    Along with a new transmitter, the Vista FPV received an upgraded mount for your smartphone. While the Ominous FPV transmitter had a slightly awkward mount that attached to the transmitter's short antenna, the Vista's transmitter has a more close-knit relationship with your phone. This new mount has been pre-set at an optimum angle, and has a better 'feel' in hand. Say goodby to the 'old days' of a long-reaching mount that made the transmitter feel unstable in your hands!

    The transmitter is now large enough for those of us that prefer to 'pinch' the sticks, while the tips of the sticks are serrated for thumb flyers. The lack of an external antenna means the pilot won't be replacing it because of an accident. Also, because of the Vista FPV's SLT link system, you can upgrade your multi-rotor to use any of the Tactic brand transmitters!

    The new Vista FPV also comes in four great colors! This means that you and three of your friends can all fly simultaneously and know who's piloting each Quad. Though yellow, blue, and green are colors the Vista FPV shares with its little brother, the Vista FPV kept orange to itself. Like any big brother, you've got things you just won't share with the 'little guy'!

    The new orange color stands out well against most backgrounds, and looks great at night as well. The new Vista FPV - durability and flight performance to match the smaller Ominus FPV in a bigger size. The time is now! Go out and get yourself the bigger, badder quad, and take your front yard, local park, or even a gymnasium by storm - You'll be glad you did!
