Tovsto Swift, new easy to fly GPS drone?

A real Hubsan Killer?


Swift is a new GPS drone that was recently announced by the Chinese manufacturer Tovsto. Available in two variants (1080p or 720p camera), the Tovsto Swift seems to be a great alternative for the Hubsan H501S. Of course, only if adopts brush-less-motors, which is not certain to me yet.

In order to allow accurate positioning, Tovsto Swift drone features both GPS and GLONASS. Through OSD, the pilot can define its own safe zone, called Secure Barrier – practically you can set a radius from which you can’t fly out.

Being powered by a 2s – 850mAh, the flight autonomy is about 14-15 minutes.

Tovsto Swift features and specs

  • Dual positioning system (GPS and GLONASS);
  • 500W / 1080P or 200W / 720P camera;
  • 5.8G real-time image transmission (FPV);
  • Intelligent flight modes (Follow Me, Point of Interest);
  • Safe flight zone aka Secure Barrier (can be formed and adjusted via OSD);
  • Fail-safe return to home (on Low battery voltage or Signal loss);
  • One Key Take-off / Landing;
  • Up to 300 meters control and FPV range;
  • About 14 ~ 15 minutes flight autonomy.

As I previously mentioned, there is nothing mentioned (yet) in the manufacturer’s specs about what kind of motors are used. Frankly, the motor type (brushed or brush-less one) can make a huge difference in terms of reliability and flight performance.
