Walkera Runner 250 Advance Quadcopter
Walkera Runner 250 Advance racing GPS Quadcopter Adding GPS features to a racing quadcopter it looks maybe somehow inappropriate but, taking into consideration that the Walkera Runner 250 Advance has about 1km flight range it is good to have a backup in case the pilot can't find the way back. In order to buy a racer quadcopter you should now that this kind of "toys" are...

FUAV Seraphi GPS quadcopter

FUAV Seraphi qudacopter
FUAV Seraphi affordable GPS quadcoper aka Seraphi Phantom If I remember correctly, few months ago I have already introduced on the quadqopter news section a similar aircraft with this FUAV Seraphi but under a different brand name. The actual tendency of the multi-rotor manufactures is to use their own gimbal and camera without letting any upgrade and tuning possibilities. This new Seraphi from FUAV is trying to...

Syma X8W test flight and impressions

Syma X8w test flight
Syma X8W quadcopter maiden flight I received this quadcopter about a month a go. Over this period I have flown it many times and I can tell that it is a nice and stable flyer. During one of my test flights with the Syma X8W I lost my control over the aircraft and crash landed. The quadcopter almost hit deadly a wild rabbit that probably came from the nearest forest right into my...

We...

Flying3D X6 Plus FPV Quadcopter

Flying3D X6 Plus quadcopter
Flying 3D X6 Plus with FPV upgrade Just found out about this Flying 3D X6 Plus quadcopter but I can't really call it a new model because the "basic" version of it was released many months ago. At the first sight the "Plus" edition is the well known Flying 3D X6 with a complete first person view system. The price difference between these two models is...

JJRC H22 quadcopter with inverted flight

JJRC H22 Quadcopter
JJRC H22 cheap multi-rotor with up-side-down flight mode This year, the quadcopter market was dominated by the JJRC multi-rotor manufacturer. They released so many models that it's hard for me even to count them. This new JJRC H22 quadcopter with inverted flight mode and extremely attractive price is suitable for indoor fun but, in low wind condition, can be also flown outdoor. The JJRC H22 is ready to fly out of...

FQ777 The Gazer 957
FQ777 AF957 first person view quadcopter The promo images with the FQ777 AF957 are revealing a quadcopter with an extremely cool design. Few months ago I already tested another model from FUQI FQ777. That model supersized me with a neat design and good build quality, hopefully this new AF957 FPV quadcopter will also follow these characteristics . On the first impression the biggest disavange of this...

Which is the best Quadcopter?

Which is the best quadcopter?
Taft question: Which is the best first Quadcopter? Buying the second quadcopter is a much easier decision, you already have some basic knowledge and term of comparison. You know that you want something more performing with more features and you will invest in your hobby as much as your budget permits it. No doubt, the hardest thing is to find your best first quadcopter. When I started my own blog...

September’s quadcopter reviews

September's quadcopter reviews on www.firstquadcopter.com I'm planning to have an entertaining beginning of autumn testing two new quadcopter models and one gimbal, before the closing of outdoor flying season. I'm very curious regarding the XK Detect X380 model which will be my first GPS quadcopter that I test. I also plans to equip it with a brushless gimbal and a camera to make some quality...

HiSKY HMX280 racing quadcopter

HISKY HMX280 racing quadcopter
HiSKY HMX280 mini review Looking at the pictures with the HISKY HMX280 racing Quad we may think that we are dealing with a waterproof aircraft, but attention, this quadcopter is NOT waterproof at all! The designers from HiSKY have done a good job when they engineered this model. The overall look of this racer is definitely different from the one other multi-rotors have and inspires "SPEED". Unfortunately, the airframe is made from plastic, not from...
