Triphibian! This is too fun!

WLtoys Q353 Aeroamphibious 3 in 1 RC Quadcopter Review (14 min 35 sec)

Get a triphibian here:

This is one fun quad! I had a blast flying it off water, make sure you watch the whole flight portion so you dont miss how it rights itself if you get it up side down! Such a great feature! Cant wait to fly it again.

This is a really cool machine, the rear motor arms actually rotate to give it forward thrust for car and boat mode, such a great idea. In normal quadcopter mode it flies great, handled the little wind I had, was very responsive at 100% and flight times are really great!

In car and boat mode, I used a little forward stick to help keep the nose down and build more speed, then you can hit the mode button and itll do a graceful takeoff, landing is similar, drive it down close to the ground, hit mode and ease it on in quad mode.

In ground mode, its fast, in forward flight its really fast, and fun, still handles great, they really did a great job with this one! I hope you enjoy!

- Price for what you get
- Spare props
- Unique idea
- Transmitter was easy to use and feels good
- Flight times
- Looks

- Internal battery, probably hard to keep water tight, but a removable
battery would you get spares and fly alot more.
- Charger didnt come with a US plug adapter

Rain or shine, take it easy - WLtoys Q353...Continue Reading

i Drone i3s Mini RC Quadcopter Full Review (9 min 57 sec)

Where to get one:

If your looking for a palm sized drone, with prop guards for flying indoors or bouncing off things accidentally, that can fly in and outdoors, this is a good one.

I fly it outside in the demo, it handled the wind very well, it also has a camera onboard, but youll have to supply your own SD card. Flips and rolls are very tight and fast, triple rates lets you pick your own pace to fly.

You can turn the lights off and on via the remote, and it also has headless mode, but I didnt have much luck with it, but I think Im too used to flying normally. It handled really well, and is alot of fun!

- Prop guards
- Lights
- Tight and fast flips and rolls
- Handles great in some wind
- Great flight time
- Spare props
- Compact USB charger

- headless seemed a little off for me

Main Features:
- 2MP aerial camera for taking photos and 720P HD videos from the extraordinary angle
- Headless Mode. This mode allows a beginner to ignore the front of the drone and pilot the drone adeptly
- One Key Return. It is easy to recall the quadcopter without the worry that it will be lost accidentally
- Safer flight with premium 6-axis gyroscope and propeller guard protecting the blades from hitting anything else
- Built-in 3.7V 350mAh lithium-ion battery offers 7 minutes' flying each time after about 60 minutes' charging
