DROCON Blue Bugs: Drone for GoPro under $200

DROCON Blue Bugs 3 drone quadcopter
At first sight, the DROCON Blue Bugs with reliable brushless motors seems to be one of the best drone under $200 for GoPro and alike action cameras.Doing some research, I found some pretty nice aerial footage using the Blue Bugs and various action cameras (like: SJCam, Xiaomi and GitUp). Cheap cameras are OK, but honestly, the lack of GPS positioning...

From now on you don't need to...

Eachine E57 drone review: So thin that it can slip everywhere

Eachine E57 quadcopter review
All kidding aside, even if it's ultra-thin, the Eachine E57 probably will not be able to sneak under any door. When it's folded, the thickness of the fuselage is bellow 1 cm, but you know it is very hard to fly this way :). With motors in the flight position, the height of the E57 is about 28 mm.Toy-grade...

JJRC H51 Rocket overview: Features and specs

JJRC H51 Rocket drone overview
Lately, most of the toy drone manufactures began to introduce more and more strange concepts: flying Eggs, Cubes, Christmas threes but, no flying pizzas - why? :D. Adopting "Rocket" shape design, the JJRC H51 seems like to be one of them.Although at first look you could find attractive the design of JJRC H51 Rocket, I don't understood its purpose. It...

XiangYu XY017HW review: All you need from your first drone

XiangYu XY017HW Falcon drone review
At a $50 base price, the XiangYu XY017HW offers many popular features and some extras. Compared to other cheap toy drones, the XY017HW brings more enjoyable 720P WiFi real-time image transmission. Drone's camera also provides much wider field of view (FOV) as most of its competitors.When it comes to newbies, I find it useless to invest more than 100 bucks...

Redpawz R011 review: Cheapest complete FPV drone

RedPawz R011 review
This week, besides the Redpawz R011, I received a couple of other drones for review, from basic toy drones to professional racing quadcopters. Honestly, from all these I prefer the tiny R011 because its package contains all you need for first person view flights. With a price tag of $63, it is very hard to find such complete FPV...

ImmersionRC Vortex 230 Mojo: Freestyle FPV drone

ImmersionRC Vortex 230 quadcopter
After I watched FinalGlideAus amazing freestyle flight video with the Vortex 230 Mojo drone, I could'n resist to write about it. ImmersionRC claims that, in order to test their new coating protection of the electronic parts, he flew through whale-spit. In my opinion probably was only a coincidence but, still an extraordinary footage.Additional to the FatShark Gen3 600TVL FPV camera, using the optional TPU camera...
