The WLtoys V272 "gargantuan green" Weighing in at 13.36g VS
The Cheerson CX-10 "pink power" Weighing in at 11.97g
Well I was going to do a little comparison between the 2 but after flying the CX-10 there is no point continuing as it is clearly the better quad in all areas.
It's lighter, smaller, way better looking, and really surprising is how easy it is to fly with the included tiny Tx, I thought it would be poor but it's not.
Overall I'm very impressed with how nice it flies, and more so at how they can sell something this good for such a low price.
One CX-10 flight was all it took and now all my v272s are on the 'to sell' pile.
Normal size Tx with dedicated flip button
Very nice, tight flips
Yellow one certainly stands out nicely
Not managed to break anything yet so definitely not fragile as it's had plenty of crashes and drops
So small you can fly it anywhere, dare I say it even when visiting the Porcelain Throne
Fitted props come off very easily though spares it comes with are much better
Yaw rate v.slow even by wltoys standards
Stock TX needs modding to be really usable (easy to do though)
Design flaw with one of the red LEDs prone to failing
Poor stock battery due to inadequate protection circuit
As an indoor flyer I'm really liking it, it's just so tiny you can fly it in even the smallest of rooms and still be able to fling it around and have some fun.
And outdoors I'm also rather impressed by it, not as good as say the v252 nor would you expect it to be but does well for its size and that small size means that even a small garden has plenty of room, it's also good fun seeing what the smallest gap you can fly it through is
