Cheerson CX-17 Cricket quadcopter review

Cheerson CX-17 Cricket review
Testing and evaluating the Cheerson CX-17 mini Wi-Fi FPV drone Went for a walk, recently, in the nearest forest, excited to enjoy some fresh spring air and beautiful flowering trees.

QZ S8 Pro Drone

In order to allow excellent reception quality, the...

JD11 quadcopter with alt hold
JD-11 drone with DJI Inspire alike design Honestly, on first look it is obvious that the design of JD11 copies the much expensive DJI Insipire. Even the transmitters are very similar.
