JD168 quadcopter with HD camera

JD168 quadcopter
JD168 quadcopter with Headless mode and RTH This JD168 quadcopter looks exactly like the JJRC H8C, which was a very popular model, also called the "Syma killer". The biggest disadvantage of that model was the 7.4 battery that burned out prematurely the quadcopter's motors. On the D168 model this issue was corrected by replacing the 7.4v battery with a 3.7v one. Another difference compared to...

Syma X8W review
I tested lately a lot of small and beginner quadcopters and finally, I received a bigger one, the Syma X8W, which is probably one of the best mid-range quadcopters. Small quadcopters are good for indoor fun, beginner pilots, practicing, etc. The mid-sized quadcopters are an intermediate step to professional ones as they can do almost all the tricks and...
