Our Verdict

If you’re looking for Quadcopter that if fun, agile and great to fly, then this is a good choice.

 

You also have the advantage of getting an FPV camera for a budget price, but as you would expect this is at the lower end and the camera is limited in performance and quality and can have some issues so be prepared.

The controller has the option to switch throttle control between left or right handed which is pretty useful and also has a throttle limit mode for beginners, so you should be able to get a good level of control in a short space of time.

 

It also has 6-axis control and a headless system which also helps with flight control, together with one key return which is a good function.

 

This Quad is very fast, responsive and agile and you can perform flips and rolls at the press of a button which is great fun.

 

As mentioned the camera isn’t great quality and there is no gimbal stabilization, which makes for some shaky footage results.

 

It is FPV live streaming to your phone but can have wifi range issues and can be unreliable.

 

If you want a good quality FPV Camera Drone then this isn’t for you.

 

The good news is all parts are available and they have designed it so that they are easy to replace, so if you have any serious crashes or accidents or need to do some general maintenance, you will be able to do this without any problems.

 

Due to the short flying time versus charging time, it’s a very good idea to order extra batteries which are quick and easy to swap over, although this Quad does heat up so you need to give it a 10 minute rest between battery changes.

 

Overall a great Quadcopter with some nice features, just needs a better camera, but for the price it’s probably what you should expect.
