Huanqi H899C drone with headless mode and GPS return to home
Surely, biggest advantage of this Huanqi H899C over the Syma X8 series is the GPS assisted return to home. When the flight battery is near empty, the quadcopter will automatically return to the take-off point.
While the H899C drone comes without a camera, it is promoted that is capable to carry GoPro or alike action cameras.
My only concern regarding these cheap RC toys is that are equipped with brushed motors so every one knows they are not too reliable. So hanging a $400 GoPro 5 camera on a $100 drone would be a reckless action, in my opinion.
In terms of design and size, the Huanqi H899C seems very similar with the Syma X8SW. Of course excepting that it comes without any camera.
Being powered by a 2000mAh battery, the advertised flight time is about 10 minutes.
