IDEAFLY Apollo FPV GPS quadcopter review

The Apollo from IDEA-FLY is a ready to fly quadcopter perfectly designed for aerial video hobbyists.

This aircraft with integrated flight control system guided by GPS and wireless 5.8Ghz image transmission for FPV can be a very powerful substitute for the much expensive Dji Phantom 2. The onboard GPS can provide advance flight modes like: precise position hold, fail safe auto return and semi-autopilot mode.

Flying with the Idea-Fly Apollo quadcopter can be remarkable even for professional pilots because is equipped with four high performance brushless motors, ESC and carbon fiber propellers.

The aircraft mainly adopts the carbon fiber as material mixed with some high-strength engineering plastics which reduces weight and cost effectively. This material makes your flight with the Apollo quadcopter fulfill all your expectations.

All-In-One quadcopters are allays a compromise between price and features. Of course, you can’t get same video quality with a standard onboard camera like with a GoPro Hero3+. There are 5 different versions of this quadcopter, two of them are without any onboard camera. the Apollo’s price range is from $300 up to $560.
