Large Quad, HD Quality FPV Video, One Package
The Ares Advantage Ethos FPV is the ideal platform for budget-minded customers in the market for a large quad to take high-quality FPV video. The large size of the Ethos FPV makes it easy to see in flight and the Aegis 6-axis Flight Stability System (FSS) gives it the control you need to get the quality footage you want. A high-quality camera that films 720p HD video at 30 FPS comes installed on the Ethos FPV along with an Anti-Vibration Mount that helps hold the camera steady so you can avoid shakes and bumps in your video footage. The signal from the camera is sent to a 4 ½ inch LCD screen that mounts directly to the transmitter and receives the live feed. Also included is an Anti-Glare Shield that frames the screen to eliminate glare when flying and filming on bright, sunny days. The Ethos FPV even comes with a high speed SD memory card and a USB card reader so you can view your videos and photos nearly anywhere. With all these features coming standard on the Ethos FPV, it’s easy to see why it’s the fastest route to quality FPV aerial video!

When you’re ready to take a break from filming and just have some fun, the Ethos FPV has you covered. Like its little brother, the Ares QX 130, the Ethos FPV comes with an integrated LED light system and is capable of doing 360° flips at the touch of a button. Plus, the same fun accessories (Rocket Launcher, Water Blaster, Bubble Machine, and Winch Unit) that can be purchased separately for the QX 130 – also work with the Ethos FPV!

The Ethos FPV is RTF (Ready-To-Fly), so it arrives 100% factory-assembled. Everything needed to fly and take FPV video is included in the box. In addition to the Ethos FPV airframe, camera, and anti-vibration mount, you get a 2.4GHz standard size 4-channel transmitter (with 2 additional channels to control the camera), the 4 ½ inch LCD screen that attaches to the transmitter and receives the FPV video signal, the Anti-Glare Shield, a 1200mAh 2-cell 25C LiPo battery, an AC charger for convenient charging from almost any outlet, a high speed SD card and reader, and even the AA batteries needed to power up the transmitter. With nothing extra to buy, you can begin flying the Ethos FPV and taking quality aerial videos within minutes of opening the box!

The Ethos FPV will be available in HobbyTown stores nationwide, at, and at
