Autel Robotics X-Star Premium quadcopter

Autel Robotics X-Star Premium Quadcopter
Autel Robotics X-Star - DJI Phantom's fear I'm probably the only one who thinks that this X-Star Premium from Autel Robotics looks like a rebranded Phantom quadcopter. In my opinion it has very similar features and specs with the PH3 4K model. For sure, adding a small status LCD screen to the X-Star's transmitter was a great idea. The dedicated take-off/land button is another useful feature of the...

Syma X5HW quad with WiFi FPV

Syma X5HW quadcopter
Syma X5HW FPV quadcopter with altitude hold Few months ago Syma announced their upgraded X5 series with altitude hold. In my opinion, this Syma X5HW quadcopter not only that it features newer technologies but also looks better than its predecessor. Certainly, over the time Syma manufactured many interesting models, from small ones like the mini X12 to the much bigger like the X8W (aka poor...

DJI Phantom 3 Advanced review

DJI Phantom 3 Advanced review
My first DJI Phantom quadcopter After almost two years of flying with more or less toy quadcopters, I finally got my hand on a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced. I was so thrilled about it that my wife asked what is it with me. As I already had another quadcopter on my desk waiting for review I had to leave the box...

Cheerson CX-10D with altitude hold

Cheerson CX-10D quadcopter
Cheerson CX-10D world's smallest quadcopter with barometric sensor Looking for the latest quadcopter news I found out that Cheerson Hobby have just released their newest micro drone, the CX-10D with altitude hold. This Cheerson CX-10D is the fourth generation of the CX-10 series. Unlike its predecessors (CX-10C and CX-10W), it doesn't have a camera, which is probably the biggest drawback of this new model. Thanks...

JJRC H20C hexacopter review

JJRC H20C eview
JJRC H20C mini hexa-copter with 720P camera Somehow I missed to review the JJRC H20C 's predecessor, which was probably the first affordable mini hexa-copter. These two models have approximately the same design but the newer H20C is slightly bigger and comes with a nicer remote controller. Certainly, the most attractive improvement of the H20C over the older H20 is the...

Yuneec Typhoon H with 4K camera

Yuneec Typhoon H hecacopter
Yuneec Typhoon H with collision avoidance When Yuneec reveled its incredibly Typhoon H hexa-copter at CES 2016, everyone was amazed by its capability to avoid obstacles. Contrary, I was more impressed by the capability of Yuneec Typhoon H to land even if one motor fails. Typhoon H’s six-rotor design automatically switches to five rotor mode in case one motor fails allowing to remain in air and have a...

RunCam Swift camera review

RunCam Swift review
RunCam Swift camera for racing quadcopters If I count correctly, this RunCam Swift camera will be the fourth model which I have the luck to review from the manufacturer with the slogan "Born for RC fanatics". From my experience with RunCam, I can say that they respect their customers, which is at least as important as the quality of the products. For example,...

Hubsan H501S X4 quadcopter with GPS

Hubsan H501S X4 quadcopter
Hubsan H501S X4 Pro micro brushless quadcopter Few weeks ago I was asked by one of my partners whether I'm interested to review the Hubsan H501S X4 quadcopter. Although I really liked the eye catching design I refused him and I opted for a another model. In my opinion, designing a micro brushless quadcotper with GPS positioning system is a great idea. I think...

XinLin X181 FPV quadcopter review

XinLin X181 review
XinLin X181 quadcopter with 5.8G FPV My biggest curiosity at the time I knew that I will receive this XinLin X181 quadcopter for review, was what could it mean that it is equipped with "similar brushless motors".  As I know, currently there are two kind of electric motors used on multi-rotors, brushed and brushless ones. While the only advantage of brushed (DC) motors is that they are cheap,...

Eachine Goggles One

Eachine Goggles One
Eachine Goggles One - Cheap HD FPV glasses Compared to its predecessor, this new Eachine Goggles Ones glasses is a more versatile FPV model. With built-in 5.8G 40CH receiver it can be paired easily with many racing quadcopters. Unlike the Eachine VR-007 goggles which had a low resolution display, this new model comes with a quality display. Frankly, the only thing that stopped me from...
