Ok ,so I ask this question,who really likes these wifi selfie drones?There are so many coming out now ,I have tested a few and honestly think they kinda suck,they fly terrible,the picture and video quality is garbage.Honestly,seen better quadcopters before this selfie wifi junk came out.my opinion.Move forward with this manufactures please,my two cents

I picked up this new action camera for my videos and I am pretty impressed with it,especially for how well it works AND I bought it for under $50 Video looks good and sound quality is decent for review work,I am pleased with this little camera
I ,like most of us work on a tight budget and it is always nice to find something that works well and doesn't cost a bunch.

This solar eclipse of 8/21/2017 was not very eventful in my area,daylight was somewhat dim for a few minutes and that was kinda the the extent of it,I did still enjoy taking the Syma X8HG out for a flight and got to check out the scenery

Eachine VR006 5 8ghz FPV Gogges Test Flight And Comparison With EV800 Gogges (11 min 10 sec)


Hi all,
Great weekend and what a day to go out and get some FPV flights inI took this oopurtunity to test out the Eachine Ev006 mini goggles.I must say I do like them!I also had my Eachine EV800 gogglles on hand for comparison.

The Vr006 goggles performed nicely,reception was as good actually possible slightly better range than my Ev800's.

Screen resolution was good,not as nice as my as my Ev800 but still acceptable.

The VR006 goggles are very small and not for everyone but the worked well for me and were more comfortable than the Ev800,much lighter as well.

I like the compact size of the VR006 goggle ,very transportable,I was able to fit two controlles ,the VR006 goggles and my DYS Elf in one bag,pretty cool

Here is a interesting new folding quadcopter,the YiZHAN i5hw

The YiZHAN i5hw is equipped with a .3mp useable for real time video to a mobile device
Other features include altitude hold ,headless mode,flight route mode and I am glad to see that this wifi quadcopter includes a hand held controller which looks pretty good.

I plan on reviewing this quadcopter soon from Lightinthebox.com and from what I see so far this quadcopter looks to be a decent wifi fpv beginner quadcopter

You can find the YiZHAN i5HW here https://goo.gl/bC8f3x

EDIT. I have been sent the I5HW to test review,I have a wifi app controlled version to test ,so no hand held controller included,generally not a favorite of mine but I will check it out and see how it does.

Bayangtoys X21 GPS And Brushless Quadcopter Test Flight Part 1 (17 min 17 sec)


Hello All,

I have recently received the new BAYANGTOYS X21 quadcopter from Banggood.com to review.
This quadcopter us a GPS enabled quadcopter with powerful brushless motors and also includes a wifi 5g fpv camera.

The version I am testing us a single GPS unit which means the quadcopter has GPS but the hand held transmitter does not.There is a double go's unit coming soon which has both GPS in the quadcopter and transmitter but at at the moment the single us only available.

I have only had a couple flights so far with the X21 so at the moment I will just tell my first impression shown from my photos.

I will be adding a full video review soon
