Cheerson CX-17 Cricket review
Testing and evaluating the Cheerson CX-17 mini Wi-Fi FPV drone Went for a walk, recently, in the nearest forest, excited to enjoy some fresh spring air and beautiful flowering trees. In one pocket I had my smartphone. In another, I had a mini-quadcopter, the new Cheerson CX-17. I like these small drones because you can take them everywhere with you - to the park or even to the office....

DJI Spark vs DJI Mavic: Worth to “downgrade”

9
DJI Spark vs DJI Mavic side by side
Last week, most of the drone related publications were invaded with the leaked images of the DJI Spark drone. DJI's new drone is also called by the enthusiasts the "Mavic Mini". With Yuneec Breeze and other compact portable drones sold under $500, this new DJI quadcopter has to be priced at a similar level in order for them to cover this market segment too. Frankly, I'm very exited about this...

HELIWAY 902HS quadcopter
HELIWAY 902HS - Lego alike building brick drone In my opinion the building bricks concept of the HELIWAY 902HS is really nice because it doubles the fun. Kids can learn not just to operate a drone but also to build their own. This cheap DIY KIT includes everything you need to build a flying machine, from motors, flight controller, battery, to the remote controller....

QZ S8 Pro foldable drone with altitude-hold

QZ S8 Pro Drone
QZ-S8 quadcopter with foldable arms by QI ZHI TOYS QI ZHI TOYS, an unknown drone manufacturer (at least for me), just announced their nice foldable drone called: QZ-S8 Pro. Both aircraft and remote controller have a nice futuristic design. They remind me about the gadgets that appear in the Ben-Ten cartoon. Thanks to the barometric air-pressure sensor, the QZ S8 quadcopter is capable to autonomously maintain...

Eachine E33W review: Basic drone for newbies

Eachine E33W drone review
Eachine E33W quadcopter drone for first-time pilots Last month Eachine announced two new entry-level drones, this E33W and another one with foldable arms. When it comes to beginners I always recommend starting with small and inexpensive multi-rotors. Eachine E33 is offered in two variants, one without a camera and one with a WiFi FPV camera. Surely, for an extra $12, the...

DHD D3 drone with meshed protective case
Thanks to its meshed protective case, the DHD D3 looks like the first drone in the jail :) Joking aside, the DHD D3 quadcopter seems to be specially designed for first-time pilots. The full protective case allows 100% safe indoor flights. Anyway, in my opinion the extra weight of the frame must have some negative impact on the flight performance. While the DHD D3 was announced...

Amimon Falcore HD FPV: High-end racing drone

0
Amimon Falcore HD racing drone
Surly for nearly 800 bucks, the Amimon Falcore HD is not the cheapest racing quadcopter. Checking the specs, I found out that the hefty price comes from the FPV system. The CONNEX ProSight HD Vision Kit (professional delay-free FPV) costs itself $399. The Connex Falcore 8-CH transmitter equipped with the ProSight VTX looks pretty high-end. In order to allow excellent reception quality, the...

Eachine E55 review: Ultra compact sElfie drone

Eachine E55 Mini review and test
Tiny cameras that can fly still seemed like a sci-fi dream just few years ago but,  with Eachine's new E55 quadcopter, the future has arrived and it's dirt cheap. Cheap flying cameras like Eachine E55 are very often called "Selfie drones", but this is a bit exaggerated. The truth is that you can't buy anything under $500 in compliance with the term. When it comes to affordable drones,...

RunCam 3 camera review
RunCam 3 - worth to buy alternative for the GoPro Session 5? When the RunCam 3 was rumored I had a mixed filing regarding this camera. I don't know if it was a smart movement from the manufacturer to announce in 2017 a camera without 4K capability. I contacted RC to request a free sample in order to review the RunCam 3 camera. Frankly they...

Blade Torrent 110 micro drone quadcopter
Blade Torrent 110 - Micro brushless quadcopter with ducted propellers  It seems that the "Whoop Mania" is invading also the brushless word.
