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

SYMA X20 WHITE Quadcopter Unboxing and Review (9 min 5 sec)

Get one at Gearbest:

Syma has great RC products, every one Ive flown has flown well, and this one flies great as well! The controller is flat, it will fit in a shirt pocket, but it feels great while flying, I never had an issue with the feel at all. The sticks slide instead of how a bigger rc radio works, but it works just fine.

This would be fun in the house on a rainy day, yet still handled the bit of wind I flew it in, in the video, on high rate its pretty fast too. Flips are fast and tight with little altitude loss at all. Its very affordable.

- Price
- Extra props
- Flies great
- Flips and rolls are fast
- High speed
- Compact, easy to transport
- Uses a mini usb to charge
- Great range

- No complaints

SYMA X20 mini RC quadcopter is extremely pocket-friendly. Equipped with various functions, including Altitude Hold, Headless Mode, One Key to Take off / Land etc., it is an attractive mini aircraft for flying indoors. More importantly, it comes with a significantly smaller transmitter which can be easily slipped into your pocket.

Main Features:
- Air Press Altitude Hold - auto hover when the throttle is freed
- Headless Mode faciltates directional control in spite of orientation
- Continuous 360-degree rotations towards different directions
- One Key to Take off / Land intended for beginners

WLtoys Q383 FPV Hexacopter Drone Unboxing and Flight Review (9 min 1 sec)

Where to get one:

Here is a full house FPV drone, in a hexacopter, it has a full cage to protect the propellors, an all in one 5.8G FPV screen and Transmitter powered by a 1s lipoly.

With the 5.8G fpv you dont get lag/latency like wifi fpv has. Combined with a real transmitter its a fun one to fly, the only complaint is the fpv camera would be nice if it was adjustable up, so you can see forward in forward flight.

Range and flight times are good, control is proportionate and feels good, it takes nice quality video, the pictures I got were a little out of focus, but maybe was because it wasnt perfectly stationary when I took the pictures.

- Price for what you get
- 5.8G FPV!
- Lipo in TX
- Comes with SD card
- Takes good video quality
- Prop guards
- Flip button
- Comfortable Transmitter
- Easy to view screen, with battery monitor
- Spare props
- Handles light wind well

- Camera angle not adjustable

Barely bigger than your hand, WLtoys Q383 series hexacopter has an HD camera that put your eyes in the sky. Intended for beginners, it features an omnidirectional protective frame, Headless Mode, and One Key Return. Moreover, its two extra motors give you the desirable speed and safety. You would love to take it to any outdoor activity and spread the excitement among your friends.

Emax Babyhawk Unboxing and Flight Review (3 min 11 sec)

Emax Babyhawk Unboxing and Flight Review

Where to get one:

What a fun quadcopter! Id say this is a grown up Tiny Whoop, more power, more fun! On the PNP you will need to do a little soldering to make it work with spektrum, see my other video, but its easy to do. I will have more videos up soon as the weather allows.

The stock PIDS are pretty good, I had to crank the throws in my radio up to 150% to get enough to flip and roll, so you may have to do the same. Very happy with it!
