Quadcopter reviews

FirstQuadcopter’s aim is to be the most trusted drone review site. We pride ourselves on our independence and our rigorous review-testing process, offering up long-term attention to the products we review. We promise only honest quadcopter reviews with pros and cons.

During our in-depth tests, we try to discover the real flight time, flight range, and flight performance of each drone.

Find the best drone reviews & ratings on FirstQuadcopter.com

We will try to review all the latest remote-controlled quadcopters, but also related products like cameras, FPV screens, backpacks, and gimbals.

In order to review a large variety of quadcopters, we are collaborating with the best drone brands and quadcopter sellers.

E88 TENG1 review: 4K drone under $40

4
Today we will have a closer look at the E88 Pro Teng1 drone. Our review covers camera performance, battery life, flight range, and flight experience. I bet that many DJI fans will consider that these cheap Mavic Mini alternatives are trashy drones that should be avoided. Personally, I think that every newbie and kid should start their journey with...

C-Fly Faith 2 Pro review
Since the first rumors have been launched regarding the C-fly Faith 2 Pro, I wanted to review it. I even contacted its manufacture and offered my tester services. I liked that, in addition to the 4K camera, it promises an impressive of up to 35 minutes flight time. In terms of flight range, it is also over most similar...

Tattu LIPO review 2021
I published my first Tattu battery review in October 2017. Since then, I have had the opportunity to test more of their products. This time we will have a closer look at 3 of their packs, a GensTattu 4S/2300mAh 45C, FunFly 3S/1300mAh 100C, and an R-Line 4S/850mAh 95C one.

SJRC F11 4K PRO review
The SJRC F11 4K Pro review will be the last drone review for this year. 2020 was a quite productive year for FirstQuadcopter - we published more than 20 authentic product reviews. Our purpose is not necessarily to make sales for our sponsors but rather to provide the best quality information possible about the product in order to help...

Looking for the best LIPO battery for your FPV drone? You should definitively check our CNHL LIPO battery review. We tested some packs of ChinaHobbyLine's Black and MiniStar series.

Photo of Hobbymate D6 Dual Lite charger
While FirstQuadcopter is mainly focused on drone reviews, we are always happy to test and evaluate additional accessories like this Hobbymate D6 Dual Lite LIPO charger. If you're an occasional drone pilot, who plays only once a month, probably any cheap charger will fit for you, but if you are seriously involved in quadcopter racing, with a huge arsenal of...

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...
