Bolt250 Part 1 - The Unboxing

2016-01-06

I’m building a new miniquad, the Bolt250 from BoltRC. It’s a midpriced 250mm class racing quadcopter.

I went with the ARF kit rather than just getting the frame.

The Bolt250 comes with two different hardware versions, standard (30mm standoffs) and stealth (25mm standoffs). It also comes with the choice of 3mm or 4mm arm thickness, with clearance for either 5” or 6” props. I opted for the stealth hardware with 4mm/5” arms.

The frame pieces include:

Also included were:

The only problem that I can see so far is that the mounting bolts included with the motors are suited for 3mm arms instead of 4mm arms. They only engage one or two threads, and need to be about 1mm longer. Not a problem though, I picked up some different bolts from Jaycar.

I’m looking forward to building this thing!
