Drones are a thing and over the years the have become popular and with that now we have restrictions to heed to if your drone exceeds limits. This drone is the words smallest and i am quite a newbie to these so my flying skills are not up to scratch but its something I will work on. Drones come in all shapes and sizes and price brackets and these can be pretty expensive too costing thousands which are for the real drone enthusiasts out there but I am way off this range so for new the smaller ones will do fine but I do look forward to moving up with cameras on board to do reviews.

THE LAWS.. Read more from the IAA 

This drone requires none of the above and is tiny which requires two AAA batteries and a proprietory charging cable via USB So it can be charged via wall plug or your PC/LAPTOP. Check out the unboxing below to see what we are dealing with.

The control panel is simple and its not one like that you now see from your mobile phone so this is good and ideal for beginners like myself. The control unit is not complicated its simple, Almost similiar to a game pad for you Playstation or XBOX with less buttons, We have multi axis controlls up,down,left right,back and forth and so on really its easy enough.

I will be honest I am useless with these but getting there and have had more crash landings than take offs and trying to film both was fun so I will leave a real video below to see what it can do and it can do what it says,when i managed to do the flips it was too high and not visible on camera but hey,shit happens. The controls are simple to use and the control panel itself fits nicely in the hand.

The drone itself is well-built but has some weak points and you do get extra blades,all drone to me are weak due to the complex make up no matter the size after about 20 crashed landings I found the weak points on this unit in particular but for the money you spend on this Its not really an issue as its easy to replace and perhaps you are better off testing in a park with lots of grass rather than inside where most surfaces are hard to land on depending if you have carpets,tiles or wooden floors, I have no carpets in-house Its tiles and flooring.. The week points are the corners with the drones axis here..Other than thats its solid.

Features

  • Gyro: 6-axis
  • Flight time: 5-8 minutes

If you want to join the world of drones and move up quicky this unit is a good one to begin with for its price it also charges pretty quick but the charge vs flight time is something that has always annoyed me with drones because it doesnt make it seem worth it charging something longer than you can use it for but thats the way it is unfortunalty…

You can buy this Drone directly from MOBILE FUN  and check out the rest of the tech they have because they have lots of it and priced very well too.
