Remarkable Quad For The $$$
This Quad is really very nice for the money. I paid $65 for the UDI 818A with camera included. I removed the safety canopy and replaced it with one I made from a plastic cup. This allowed the quad to be more agile due to less surface area contacting with the wind. I suggest the Turnigy 600mah batteries. These take about 45min to charge and give about 9min of flight time. Also, due to their discharge rate, they provide allot more response from a lower throttle position. The auto-stabilization is pretty extreme which make this great for someone learning to fly as well as a stable platform for taking pictures. The camera itself is nothing to write home about but it works as advertised. One thing to note is that this quad is virtually indistructable! Crash after crash, it continues to perform reliably. Out of the 9 quads I currently own, which range in price from $40 to $175, the UDI818A has proven itself to be the best overall value for my money.
Drone better than anticipated. Patience is a virture.
The GOOD. Ordered evening of 1/7/2015. Estimated delivery 13th-17th. Arrived afternoon of 9th.
Great quad! Highly recommend!
Right out of the box, the 818A comes with everything you need to start flying, transmitter, (1) 3.7V 500mAh Li-Po battery, camera for photos and video (640×480), battery charger, USB cable (mini USB) to upload footage and/or photos from camera , a mini screwdriver, and four spare props.
His favorite Birthday gift
Bought this for my son’s 9th birthday, and it was the first experience with a quadcopter/drone for both of us. I’d definitely recommend this as a good starter unit. We were both able to fly it with a decent amount of control the first time out. We learned quickly, however, that this model is susceptible to the slightest breeze, so keep that in mind when you take it out. Also, consider buying a few extra batteries to extend your flight time, 7-8 minutes goes by quick.
Love it. Just wish the snow was gone so …
Love it. Just wish the snow was gone so we could get it outside. My grand daughter who is 13 picked it up fast. I am still practicing with it. It is a great quadcopter to start with. The camera takes decent pictures and movies. Once I get this one down pat I will be getting a better one. But for the money it is worth it. Oh yeah, it is a good idea to order some extra batteries as they only last around 6 minutes. I ordered 5 extra batteries that came today.i will get these charged and keep them on hand. I recommend this unit for beginners. My only complaint is the batteries only last around 6 minutes but I knew that before I bought it.
Drones have received a lot of media attention in the last few months and it left me wishing I had one myself. Unlike some other people I have very little desire to fly one onto the lawn of the White House. However, flying it over my own house and neighborhood seemed like a great way to get a bird’s eye view of what is already so familiar to me on the ground. While google maps gives you a glimpse, it is not nearly as detailed as I would like.
A great toy – my dogs and I LOVE them!!
These are awesome! They are light weight which, oddly enough, makes them more durable. If they were heavy they would break when they hit a tree, wall etc…but because they are so light they can take a pretty good beating and still come back for more!
Solid Quadcopter for Beginners, I Assume
First time jumping into aerial RC, and what can I say, they’re going to take a lot of practice to learn how to control effectively. The U818A is really fun for what brief time I got while flying. Crashed it a few times with no damage from what I can see. The only downside is the battery life, you only get a few minutes of flight time before it dies :/ I would think it’s good entry way into the hobby of Quadcopter/drone piloting.
