WLtoys Q383 safe drone for beginners

WLtoys Q383 drone Hexacopter

WL Toys Q383A hexa-copter with protective frame and 5.8G FPV camera

Recently WLToys announced two new hexa-copters, the Q383 with WiFi FPV and the Q383A with WiFi FPV. Basically these two models are identical excepting the onboard camera and the remote controller.

While the WLtoys Q383A comes with a nice combo FPV transmitter, the Q383 comes with a cheap plastic “toy-ish” radio.

Thanks to the full protective frame, both variants are suitable for indoor flight. Newbies can safely practice the flight movements without causing major damages.

Based on my experience with the JJRC H20C which is a similar RC toy with this Q383, the 6 motor design seems to offer great stability but does not provide any redundancy on motor failure.

Being powered by a 500mAh battery, the advertised flight autonomy of the WLtoys Q383A is about 5-6 minutes.
