At first look, the OBTAIN F803 looks like a great alternative to the popular Mavic Pro. It has not just similar foldable design but also comparable features. The OBTAIN F803 drone comes in 2 Colors, white and black.

My biggest concern regarding these new gadgets from unknown manufactures are the after sale support through spare parts availability. Famous brands like DJI are continuously offering firmware updates for their products which can solve hidden issues as well as bring some new features.

According to the C-fly OBTAIN F803 specifications, the 3 cell 3800 mAh battery allows about 22 minutes of flight autonomy – a bit less that its competitor. Thanks to the “Fail-safe RTH”, when the battery is near empty the aircraft will return autonomously to the take-off point.
