XINLIN SHIYE X198 GPS drone for less than $200


If you are looking for a good GPS enabled drone for a nice price offer, then you should check this XINLIN SHIYE X198. In addition to the powerful brush-less motors and full HD camera, it comes with many nice features (like Follow me mode).

The brushless motors are more reliable than the coreless motors. They are also comparatively more efficient and have a longer life-span. Theoretically you can have more trust on a brushless drone than on a brushed one.


Equipped with the latest 6 axis flight control system, XINLIN X198 drone ensures a direction stabilized flight. Since it has a bit of power and it is a larger drone (29 x 28 x 10 cm), it should not fly away with the wind.

The XINLIN SHIYE X198’s camera is removable and it allows to record videos with resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. Note: the camera features 5.8G WiFI FPV, so I suggest you to check if your phone is compatible with this transmission band.
