ZHIYUN SMOOTH Q2 Review
Like many awesome gadgets, the ZHIYUN SMOOTH-Q2 also started on Kickstarter. While the project goal was set to $100050, they managed to raise more than $300k from about 2300 backers - and the numbers are growing hour by hour. SMOOTH Q2 promises not just to be one of the smallest phone gimbal, but also the most easy to use....

Eachine EG16 - Best drone under 100?
As lately I received for review only drone accessories, I was happy to finally get a new drone to play with it. Even if, due to its brushed motors and compact size, the EACHINE EG16 WINGGOD could be considered just a toy drone, it comes with plenty of high-end features. In addition to the precise GPS positioning system it...

ZHIYUN CRANE M2 Review
Older guys like me probably still remember the movie named "Universal Soldier", it was about enhanced super troopers good for all the jobs. When I saw the first rumors about the ZHIYUN CRANE M2 gimbal, that movie came in to my mind. It is compatible with a versatile range of photo/video equipment. You can use it with smartphones, action...

VIFLY Camera Switcher review
In a nutshell the VIFLY Cam Switcher is a tiny device which allows you to toggle between two video inputs remotely from your transmitter. For example, in addition to the frontal camera you will be able to install a second camera on rear of the belly. If you search on YouTube for "CheaterKwad" you will find some really cool...

Osmo Action review: Action Camera from King of Drones

DJI Osmo Action Review
OSMO Action is DJI's first attempt to enter into the word of action cameras - dominated by GoPro for a long time. As DJI has been creating solid cameras for its drones and handheld gimbals for years it was just a matter of time for the above to happen. They aimed high from the beginning, the OSMO Action (OA)...

VIFLY Power Ultimate DJI battery charger review
Today we will have a closer look on VIFLY's DJI battery charger called PowerUltimate. This tiny aluminium box allows to charge your DJI drone battery right on the field. It is compatible with most consumer DJI drones (Mavic and Phantom series) - even with their smallest drone. As DJI does not offer a dedicated car charger for the little...

Crazepony 2s 500mAh review
About a month ago I received two pieces of Crazepony 2S/500mAh LiPo packs for review. Unfortunately, due to ESC failure, my FullSpeed TinyLeader was stuck on the ground so I had to wait with the battery performance tests till I repair it. As most Power Whoops are sold without battery, first thing you need to do prior to your flight...

The DJI Osmo Pocket was announced at the end of last year and from the first rumors we wanted to get one and test it here on FirstQuadcopter. The plan was to offer a real user experience based review. I spent the last couple of days with the Osmo Pocket 4K, trying to test it in different situations. From...

AKK Race VTX review: Cheap Low profile FPV transmitter

AKK RaceVTX review
After the FX2-Dominator review, we are back with another AKK FPV transmitter review. Contrary to its much powerful brother, the AKK Race VTX is suitable for low profile racing drones, where space is critical. In addition to the ultra-thin design, it comes with lots of cool features and friendly price tag. Speaking from my own experience, when it comes to...
