GTENG T908W review
GTENG T908W it is advertised as to be a DIY quadcopter but, if you ask me, it is more like a modular drone. You don't need to solder or something like this, just put together the main parts and you are ready to fly. In my opinion the fact that a drone can be easily split into parts should not...
