DFD F183 with HD camera

DFD F183 or JJRC H8C – same quadcopter under different brand

Looking for a new quadcopter that will be a good replacement to my dead quad, I found this DFD F183 (a.k.a. JJRC H8C).

These two quadopters has the same design and same specs but they have different prices. The DFD F183 quadcopter has the higher price. Probably they tested the market for the optimal price.


I think that only after few weeks we will have the final price for the DFD F183 and hopefully will be under $60. For this price and because it has a very professional design, the DFD F183 quadcopter can be a good Xmas present.

As replacement, I wanted something cheap but not palm-sized and with longer flight range that I had on my old quadcopter. The DFD F183 looks very promising because it uses a 7.4v A Li-Po battery instead of a 3.7v battery like the Syma X5C.
