Halloa people

soo yeah.. not every RC has to be high-spec and fast.. Right? This time I felt like reviewing something more affordable & entry level. Besides that, I wanted to see what these kinds of quadcopters are like these days

The quadcopter in question: TIANQU VisuoDrone XS809W

And spare batteries are even available 900 mAh 3.7V lion

I have to say this quad isn't bad at All for what it costs.. I was pleasantly surpriced, eventhough it's offcourse quite plasticky

allright.. not Really a RC proeduct in this thread, eventhough I do regularly use this phone when flying a video-quad
So.. I recently ordered up a new Smartphone from Gearbest. Originally I had not really planed on doing a review of it, but the other reviews I came across omitted some crucial info.. So I decided to do a review of it anyway

Link to this phone: Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 5.99 inch smartphone (256 GB version)

I got an email today from Inch.io with release notes for an updated version of FPV Freerider.. Not a whole lot has changed. The biggest addition is the custom maps.. I do not know if we will see new maps for this feature in the Near future, but at least we get 3 new maps with this new release

as you know, if you know my channel, I very much like to build things myself (like my XJ470 video quad).. There is a time & place for just buying & flying as well though Besides that the Xiaomi Mi 4K Drone looked very promissing to me, so I ordered one from Gearbest..

Link to the quad: Xiaomi Mi 4K Video drone

A nifty option is to use it's camera & gimbal on a handheld grip by the way: Xiaomi Mi gimbal grip

So.. I'll start this thread with my full review.. On my 2nd channel though, I've got a good amount of uncut aerial video's from the drone by now though:
