Equipped with GPS positioning system, the FEILUN FX176C1 is the first drone under 100 bugs with truly intelligent flight modes like: Follow me and Waypoint mission. At first look, the weak point of this cheap GPS drone are the brushed motors. They have much shorter life span compared to brush-less ones. In my opinion, in order to extend the life of...

MOLA TOURIST1 drone with collision avoidance system

MOLA TOURIST1 quadcopter
Mola, deluxe division of NineEagles recently announced their first drone with obstacle avoidance system. In order to allow easy transportation the arms of the MOLA TOURIST1 are foldable.

DJI Phantom 3 SE with extended flight range

Phantom 3 SE drone
Second skin of the Phantom 3 series Firstly, the Phantom 3 series was announced in 3 variants: "Standard", "Advanced" and "Professional". Few month later DJI announced the "4K" edition with WiFi FPV and now, here is the Phantom 3 SE. This is weird, at least for me, because in most of the countries DJI already stopped selling the P3A and P3P because they are focused...
