Like most drones under $200, the XK Q868 Cyclon (aka Wltoys Q868) also features GPS positioning system, cool foldable design, and a 4K camera with 2-axis stabilization. Top of all, it claims that its 3s/3000mAh battery pack provides up to 30 minutes of flight time, which is probably the best battery life in its price tag.
The aircraft measures 254 x 280 x 86mm and has a wheelbase (rotor to rotor distance) of 344mm. At the end of each foldable arm, there is a powerful 1806 type brushless motor with a foldable propeller.
Thanks to the Auto-RTH failsafe function, the XK Cyclone Q868 will return autonomously to the take-off point, in case of low drone battery voltage or out of the transmitter’s range. Both, FPV and control range are marketed to be around 500 meters. The maximum flight altitude is limited to 200 meters.
