TAROT 130 TL130H1 Review

TAROT 130 TL130H1 is a Mini Real-time Transmission FPV Racing Drone with Brushless Motors. It weighs only 138 grams including batteries, inherited the usual Tarot overall design criteria.

It is a ARTF 135mm racer drone and include a 300mW 32CH 5.8G VTX and naze32 compatible FC. You’ll have to supply your own FPV receiver and monitor (or goggles).

The TL130H1 comes with MT1104 / TL150M1 brushless motors, controlled by 6A ESCs.

It comes with Tarot branded components, such as a Standard TL300D flight controller, 3-inch propellers, a TL300MN2 PAL camera (520TVL), TL300N2 5.8GHz 300mW FPV transmitter and an antenna (TL300K4).

Tarot recommends using a 11.1V 3S 35C 450mAh battery.

It’s price is 129.99$ at Gearbest.

TAROT 130 Features

Tarot 130 is really small, just 135mm. It has a classic H frame with 2 plates linked with lightweight aluminium standoffs.

Tarot 130 features a full carbon fiber frame design

The LiPo is installed on top of the drone, you can use a 3S 500mAh LiPo for example.

The large port is a PWM receiver port … so for such size, it’s strongly advise to not install some. CPPM or SBUS receivers are much more adapted. Three ports can be found on the rear part of the FC. The right one is the SBUS. By default the servo plug is installed on it. If you plan to install a CPPM receiver, reconnect this cable to the central connector.

ESC are all installed on each arms well protected with heatshrink. No big risk of shortcuts, but it’s strongly advised to secure the installation by “ziptiying” them. The tape have been reported to loose its property versus time especially with the heat free by ESC. 6A 3S ESC flashed with BLheli firwmare.

Motors are 1104 brushless motor 4000KV.

The camera orientation can be ajusted. A simple 520TVL camera installed front housed into the frame. The FOV if the camera is annouced to be 120 degrees.

The FC is seen directly via Cleanfight configuration. As soon as you are installing first associated drivers. Officially, you need the CH340 drivers but CH341 seems to works fine too (same than for Hubsan product for example).

A solid frame much more adapted for racing than the LKTR120. Thanks to its relative light weight, you have in hand a real sporty racer naze32 & cleanflight friendly.
