Can’t be beat for a bargain deal an a ton of fun!
WOW! I have has several small remote control helicopters! that cost as much as $40-$50. but this little Quad blows them away. I have never had so much fun with a flying R.C. as I have with this! the instructions and remote are easy to learn. after I figured out that the most important step is to turn on the drone and remote with the drone sitting on the most level surface possible “It has a self calibrating and gyroscope.” By my third flight it felt as if I had almost mastered the controls, The average battery ran from 7.5 minutes on the first flight using the video capture the whole time. to over 10 minutes only taking a few snap shots. The camera is mounted on the battery door and is done so in such a way that with the removal of a few screws and simply unplugging the lead you could fly without the extra weight of the camera if wanted. The trick mode is awesome, bump the trick button and flip the control stick in any direction and the Quadrcopter will do a barrel roll/360 degree flip in that/any direction. before ordering I did lots of research and for my first this has far exceeded my expectations especially for the price. when I ordered I also ordered a repair kit for all the landing gear, bumper gear. props. motors, and gearboxes for less than $10.00, I also ordered a 4-battery and charger kit. for less than $18.00 so for less than $80.00 I have an awesome toy great for an afternoon of entertainment! also was able to install a video player through the Google App store and plug the micro S.D. card directly into my smart phone and watch the video instantly in the field !!
Good starter drone.
I’ve been interested in drones for a while, especially camera/video drones but since I had never flown one I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on one just to destroy it while learning to operate it so I went with a lower priced one, while I’ve only flown it twice outside due to the weather conditions it has survived an encounter with the bumper of a parked car as well as several other hard landings, so I can safely say this is a good drone for a beginner.
Recommended for all beginners, easy to learn quadcopter
So far, so good. We’ve only been using this 2 days so far. I will continue to update in the future if we experience any changes or further problems, not mentioned in this review. This was a gift for our 12 year old son for Christmas. He loves it. I would recommend that if this is purchased for a child, that you have an adult start helping him/her out at first, until they get the hang of it on their own.
Great Drone! Tons of Fun!
Been flying this little guy for over a year now. DEFINITELY worth the price. I purchased extra batteries and a charger from an RC hobby store and have learned advanced tricks like triple flips and forced bank turns. Ive crashed the shit out of this little drone. Once full tilt into my truck, another time i got it caught 30 ft up in a tree and after i shook it out and let it fall to the ground it took off and flew without wvwn needing trim adjustment. Only problem ive had was the little blade guards would sometimes rub the rotors during advanced maneuvers. A little bending by hand seemes to solve the problem twmporarily but i used my heat gun to softwn the plastic and permanently reshape them. I also (covering the vent holes wigh tape) spray painted half of the drone fluorescent orange so I can see the orientation better at distance. “EZ mode” does not work at all and is a great way to lose control of your drone. Every time the drone gets low on battery the “EZ mode” fomes on autmatically. Be quick and toggle it back off using the button and youll be good to go. I never used the camera and took it of immediately. I’d assume it produces a shaky low resolution image and really isnt worth the time to use.
Felt like a kid again
When I was younger I remember getting a helicopter for christmas that was attached to a line and would go in circles. This quadcopter brings back all those memories. Thank you Akaso. This was so much fun, I bought 2 more for my nephews. Do not make a mistake like me and have to wait on the one battery to charge, make sure you buy more battery’s when ordering this, because battery life is around 5 to 7 minutes. I just ordered 8 more battery’s and a multi charger. I have never flown a drone before and it was fairly easy to pick up on the do’s and don’ts. So far it has not failed me, I have run this into trees, bushes, side of house, and it still keeps going. With the blade guards on it, it is tuff. If you want more battery life, do not use the camera. I just took it off. I would say it is a great beginners quadcopter. Don’t fly without blade guards though, I found out the hard way when i flew it into my hand. Those blades hurt!!! I was hard headed and did not read the instructions first. Read the instructions.
Fun and rugged. Under the half pound registration limit
When I finally got time to try this out, I was pleasantly surprised at how well it operated and how resilient it is. It holds up well to my rough and and inadvertent landings. It’s a lot more rugged than it appears. There are a lot of movements to remember, but I think it will survive the learning period. The battery time seems ok. I’m not sure just how long I had it going, but at least 15 minutes or so with several bumps and falls.
Must calibrate and trim EVERY FLIGHT! Squirrleyflier!
This quad flies a little squirrley. I have a syma x5sc that is much more stable than this. If you don’t calibrate the accelerometer( both sticks down and to left) it is unstable. And if you don’t trim the quad before you fly it pulls hard off center and won’t hover. They call this an x5c but I don’t believe this is a rebranded syma x5c. The plastic is cheaper than a syma and so are the electronics. For a beginner I DO NOT recommend this quad. Get a syma x11(much more stable, better flier) or pay 15 more for a real syma x5c. If this is all you can afford then get it just be sure to calibrate and trim before each flight. Also, the controller is really cheap feeling and performing.
Lot’s of fun for the newbie
I bought this as a Christmas present for my ten year old son. Christmas came early this year so we spent the day playing with it, or maybe I should say about an hour and a half. I bought four extra batteries so we have a total of five. The charge on the battery lasts about 15 minutes which drops to less than ten if you’re recording video the whole time. It took less than five minutes to learn how to control on a breezy day. You’ll definitely want to have a wide open area when you’re first learning it though. Be sure to set the trims properly for the most enjoyment when flying. He absolutely enjoyed flying the thing and taking video….even more-so than his new Redcat Racing Blackout XTE RC truck. He’s already talking about upgrading to a better drone, but this one is great for learning.
This quadcopter is SO FUN! I love how stable and easy to use. Within minutes of opening the box, I had it hovering above my kitchen floor.
