The SIMTOO XT175 Fairy is an affordable GPS enabled selfie drone. In addition to the dual satellite positioning system it features also optical positioning. The SLAM positioning system ensures stable hovering for indoor environment. Thanks to the foldable arms the XT175 Fairy can be stuffed easily into your everyday backpack.
According to the manufacturer’s specs, the 2s/970mAh LiPo battery allows up to 16 minutes flying time.
Featuring fail-safe return to home (RTH), when the flight battery is near empty or it is out of controller’s range, the Simtoo Fairy will return autonomously to the take-of point.

SIMTOO XT175’s camera features WiFi real-time image transmission. You can see on your phone’s screen what the drone sees from the sky. Unfortunately, the FPV range is quite short for such a RC gadget.
SIMTOO XT175: control modes
