Brilliant quadcopter only limited by it's lightness so can be 'fun' to fly in gusty windyconditions. This is the updated version as previous people had asked.
Previously I owned the Q7 FY326 (which Amazon also sell) an the X5C-1 fly's more gentle compared to the cheaper knock off version. Camera is so so but not bad overall on a bright day.
The yaw and turns can be controlled nice and gently (compared to the FY326) so tracking shots with the camera can be smooth without jerking manoeuvres.
Don't bother with the 'Atdoshop New 4PC 3 Blade Propeller' as they are no real benefit to flying and make the battery life even less. Do buy more than one battery and if you can try getting an 850mah battery for over 7 minutes flying time (including camera use). Remember to fly in high mode if flying outside as this quadcopter is susceptible to winds and can easily be taken away by winds landing a lot further away than you would think.
Cracking bit of kit. Great introductory drone. Its very easy to fly but be aware of windyconditions - you really need to only fly this in still/light wind conditions as its very light and the motors are not the most powerful. I got cocky and lost the drone in a field and took 2 days to find it.
Really robust and resilient and even having been out for 2 days in the pouring rain it still worked !
Camera is not great but for this price what do you expect. Still are blocky but the video is ok.
Great item. I am new to flying and found this very easy to master, and once in High Mode, it becomes more challenging/fun. Great to fly both inside and out, and even in windyconditions. Camera is basic but for the price, you cannot complain too much. I have had many hours of flying fun. It is worth picking up extra batteries in order to limit the disruption to flying.
Device was delivered on time, instructions are somewhat minimal though there's enough information on the web to help out if you get stuck. Some assembly was needed this was easily for me but people who have sight issues or struggle with small fiddly screws may need some help. Supplied with an extra set of blades and blade guards.
The drone it's self is very light making flight in windyconditions near impossible however one you have the trim sorted out its flight is ok. Camera is reasonable is better for video as stability whist you try and take a still can be an issue.
The battery will only last for around 7 minutes and WILL take over a hour to charge the connectors are fiddly and flimsy.
Finally if you chose to fly this outside take the time to REMOVE the blade guards as you run the risk (like me) of loosing this device up a tree
Fantastic bit of kit. I own a large Drone, which almost flies itself, I wanted to learn how to fly manuallly, which is the only way this quadcopter works. It is easy to use, you do need to fly it outside until you get used to it and cannot be flown in windyconditions.
You will need to treat yourself to an extra set of batteries as flying time is 5 - 7 minutes, however, extra batteries are cheap to buy.
The camera is great at this price point. Great fun for adults.
This item ships from China, so buyer beware it took a long time to get this item. The quad copter is fun and reasonably easy to get to grips with as a complete beginner. My eleven year old managed to figure out basic maneuvers in his first attempt. The battery life on these is approximately 5-8 minutes of flying time, similar to other quadcopters in this price range, so may be worth buying a spare to avoid frustration.
Downside is these are incredibly light weight and the slightest wind gust can take them off course. We have retrieved this from several trees when we lost control due to mildly windycondition. This is not very robust, so I will not be surprised if we have a "fatal" crash in the near future. Fun while it lasts.
