In my opinion, thanks to the nice red/green contrast, the Furious Moskito 70 has one of the coolest design among the many ducted propeller drones. The Moskito 70 is an Uber small and lightweight brushless FPV racing quadcopter. Due to the powerful 10.000kv brushless motors it is suitable not just for indoor flights but for outdoor flights as well. Featuring the versatile F3 flight controller, the...

Warlark Pro brushless FPV quad

Warlark PRO FPV mini quad
Lately I introduced many mini drones with ducted props, but this Warlark Pro will be the first which features penta-blade propellers. Frankly, I would be curious to test one because till now I was totally disappointed by all props over 3-blades. They are much more noisy. According to your existing transmitter you can opt between 3 type of radio receivers: A-DSMX/2, B-SFHSS/FRSKY...

KingKong Tiny7 review: Tiny Whoop for less

KingKong TiNY7 drone review
Till I get the genuine one, I thought to review the KingKong Tiny 7. As you can see in the image above, it is a very good replica of the popular Inductrix FPV. The ducted propeller design proved to be not just cool but also very safe. When flying indoor or close to people, accidents are almost inevitable. Due to its...

DHD D3 aka Happycow 777-382 SKY Phantom

DHD D3 drone with meshed protective case
Thanks to its meshed protective case, the DHD D3 looks like the first drone in the jail :) Joking aside, the DHD D3 quadcopter seems to be specially designed for first-time pilots. The full protective case allows 100% safe indoor flights. Anyway, in my opinion the extra weight of the frame must have some negative impact on the flight performance. While the DHD D3 was announced...

Amimon Falcore HD racing drone
Surly for nearly 800 bucks, the Amimon Falcore HD is not the cheapest racing quadcopter. Checking the specs, I found out that the hefty price comes from the FPV system. The CONNEX ProSight HD Vision Kit (professional delay-free FPV) costs itself $399. The Connex Falcore 8-CH transmitter equipped with the ProSight VTX looks pretty high-end. In order to allow excellent reception quality, the...
