Drocon Cyclone X708W cheap drone for beginners

Drocon Cyclone X708w beginner drone

Like I promised last week, here I am with the next Drocon drone, the Cyclone X708W. Compared to the Bugs 6, the Drocon Cyclone X708W is a basic model with brushed models and limited functionalities.

When it comes to beginners I suggest not to invest a lot of money into something they can crash at first flight. Sold for only $55, the Drocon Cyclone X708W seems to be a nice learn-to-fly quadcopter.

Excepting altitude hold, it features all the latest features (like: headless mode and one key return to home). During night flights you will be assisted by four LED lights, one under each arm (blue ones in front and orange ones on back).

Drocon Cyclone X708W features and specs

  • 720P camera with WiFi real-time image transmission;
  • Dual speed rates (High and Low);
  • Headless flight mode;
  • One key return to home;
  • Acrobatic 3D flips;
  • LED lights for night flights;
  • Up to 100 meters control range;
  • About 8 minutes of flight time.

According to the manufacturer’s specs, the X708W has up to 8 minutes of flight time. The 550 mAh Li-Po battery is swap-able, so in order to have more fun time you can have couple of spare charged ones.

In the above video, iKien shows how to prepare the Cylone X708W for your flight.

Became curious? You can find this beginner drone here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073J1LB9K/. For a smaller budget you can also find camera-less version of the Drocon Cyclone (without “W”).

Included with the Drocon Cyclone X708W drone

  • USB battery charger;
  • 550mAh Li-Po Battery;
  • 1 set of blade propellers;
  • 2 pairs of spare propellers;
  • Screwdriver;

    • you can find props for the Drocon X708W on Amazon as well on Aliexpress. They look like standard Syma blades, so maybe you can try with them.

  1. my kids got me a cyclone for Christmas and on the first run the control went up and it ran fine then on the second run it went up ran fine went to bring it down but the control would and the drone went out of control and went over my next door neighbor house and we could not find it looked for about one hour had control on trying to get it to find it did not work so i guess with the malfunction of control i do not know what to do please help it came with a one year warty that we won on black Friday

  2. Good day,

    my son now has a Drocon Cyclone X708W that he’s received on Christmas; i was looking at your site as well as Amazons for accessories or spare parts. Your manual list accessories that I would like to purchase but shows no where on the sites where I can acquire such. What do I need? Upper cover 708001; lower cover 708002; Protecting guard 708003 ( 4ea), and (4ea) rubber bumpers.

    Thank you

    • You should look fro MJX X708w spare parts, I think this two drones are compatible/identical. But first ask the seller if the parts are fits for Drocon Cyclone X708W as well
      Good luck!
