The biggest innovation of this FQ11W over the older FQ777 models is the foldable arms. If I remember correctly, FQ777 was among the first manufacturers who offered truly pocket drones. In my opinion, it is a great idea to store the quad inside the remote controller.
Unlike its predecessors, this FQ777 FQ11W features a WiFI FPV camera which allows real-time image transmission. Your smartphone can be easily attached on top of the remote controller using the included phone holder. Unfortunately, the camera has only 0.3 Mp video resolution so we can’t expect too spectacular image quality.
The tiny aircraft is powered by a 220mAh (3.7v/20c) battery which allows an advertised 10 minutes of flight autonomy. If this is true, we are dealing probably with the longest playtime offered by such a small and inexpensive toy. I’m curious if the flight battery can be recharged through the transmitter like in the case of the FQ777-124.
Priced for $36 with free shipping at HobbyWoW this FQ11W pocket drone can be a great gift for first-time pilots. BTW, you can opt between 4 colors (black, gold, silver, and rose).
