Mavic Air 2 Freewell Anamorphic lens review

Mavic Air 2 with Freewell Anamorphic lens
Today, I had to review the Freewell anamorphic lens for the DJI Mavic Air 2 drone in a stunning location in Italy, but let's talk about anamorphic lenses or anamorphic format first. The process of anamorphosis optics was developed by the French astronomer and inventor  Henri Chrétien. The optical process is called 'Hypergonar' and it is capable of showing a...

LiftOff review: The drone simulator – Learn & train under lockdown

LiftOff drone simulator review
My son was only 4 years when I started with FirstQuadcopter.com, so he grew with drones around him. Due to this fact, he lost or didn't even develop an interest in RC toys. This is somehow understandable seeing his 40 years old dad playing with drones for such a long time. Now, he is 10 years old and he's a...

HGLRC Sector5 V3 review
My HGLRC Sector 5 V3 review covers all my personal experiences from unboxing to first flight. Besides some facelift, the third generation Sector 5 brings upgraded hardware and GPS feature which provides failsafe RTH (Return To Home). Like its predecessors, the Sector 5 V3 also has two power options and multiple FPV setups. While 4S edition comes with HGLRC...

We will test the maximum flight range, top battery life, GPS accuracy, failsafe feature, and camera performance. Compared to its predecessor, the biggest improvement of the new SG906 Pro 2 is the...

JJRC X16 review
The JJRC X16 is an affordable excellent looking foldable drone that weighs less than 200 grams. Find out from our hands-on review whether a $100 drone can compete with the four-times more expensive DJI Mavic Mini. On paper, the JJRC X16 drone looks extremely promising, it has dual-GPS positioning, 6K camera, and up to 25 minutes of battery life. Based...

HGLRC Veyron 3 review, ratings and guide

HGLRC Veyron3 review
This would be my second attempt of publishing my HGLRC Veyron 3 review. The draft of my previous article was lost together with 6 months of hard-working (drone reviews, quadcopter news, and lots of uploaded user manuals) due to messing up my blog's database. While Oscar Liang and Half Chrome were more focused, in their Veyron 3 CineWhoop review, on...

SKYREAT Mavic Air 2 case: Safe and comfortable

4
For sure, the biggest advantage of the Mavic Air 2 combo vs standard edition, is the longer playtime (3 vs 1 battery) and the included shoulder bag. If you are on a budget and go with the standard, the SKYREAT Mavic Air 2 Case seems to be a great solution to store and transport your precious drone safely and...

Mavic Air 2 in-depth review
In my Mavic Air 2 review, firstly I will go through its most important features including camera performance, range, and battery life, so in the end, we should be able to conclude who’s this kind of drone designed for. Featuring 48MP camera with 4K@60fps recording, 8K Hyperlapse, and HDR video capabilities, the new Mavic Air 2 looks like it is...

HGLRC Sector132 review: 2 in 1 FPV drone

HGLRC Sector132 review
In my in-depth HGLRC Sector132 review I will reveal to you all the advantages and drawbacks of this hybrid Cinema-Freestyle FPV drone. Maybe it’s not the cheapest, fastest or smallest, but it’s probably the most flexible FPV platform. It features removable blade protectors which allows easy conversion from a CineWhoop into a veritable Freestyle drone, 3/4S battery compatibility, and...
