Guys, this drone is quite similar to Visuo, it's cheaper and with optical flow sensor for better stability.
Even if I've used bad words during the review this remain one of the best cheaper fpv drone.

It has two 2.0 mp camera: one in front and one bottom used for flow sensor and even for video and pictures.

ENJOY

As most of you probably already knows, Youtube is changing the game rules: to be monetized a channel must have at least 4000 views hours per year (11 hours per day) and minimum 1000 subscribers. Both are mandatory to get monetized by Youtube.

Few of you knows my channel that mainly talk about Cheerson CX-20 and Arducopter with many tutorials...is about 2 months that I've started also reviewing new products such as quadcopters and now (next video) also RC cars.

My videos are in Italian language with English subtitles (all videos) and from now on also Spanish, French and German subtitles; videos description are available in Italian, English and thanks to the silly Google Translator, also in Spanish, German, French, Russian, Indonesian and Portuguese languages.

So, any video production, as you can imagine is a big job regardless if content is good for all or not. Anytime I go for a review, I bring with me 2 cameras (3 for RC cars) microphone, tripods and obviously, the item to be reviewed.

How many of you are in the same situation? And what do you think about this big changes in Youtube Affiliation?

In any case, if you'd like to support my job, please visit my channel at http://www.youtube.com/c/dronelander watch few videos and subscribe to it.

If this post result inappropriate, I will remove as soon as I get warn: many of us got inspired also from small Youtube Channels like mine.

Hi folks,

one of the most important quadcopter parts are the propellers and if they are not well balanced, could gives bad results on drone performance such us vibrations, jello effect on video and also flight time.

First of all, use some glue (specific for hobby) on quadcopters screw expeially on motor's screws.

Then, check and eventually balance your propellers: as most of us already knows, original propellers are the best you can get but often, newbie cares just about how cool are their new sparkling propellers.

What you need to balance these:

Nail polish: steal it from you mother or girlfriend but be sure they understand what you are going to do I don't like to use sand paper because you cannot correct any error...nail polish can be removed at any time and for sure, it doesn't fly away like tape.
A good balancer: I personally don't like magnetic one.
And my guide...

I got very good results from this method.

JJRC H51 ROCKET 360 Full Review and Underground FPV test (12 min 54 sec)


The JJRC H51 Rocket 360 is a bizarre but incredibly stable entry level drone: in this review you will see the incredible ALT HOLD and the FPV flight test inside a garage.

In addition the JJRC H51 has folding umbrella arms for space-saving storage, the JJRC H51 has an incredibly precise alt hold, making driving very simple and precise and a 720P HD cam.

This is a good starting point drone, easy to carry on in a backpack, stable enough for beginners and with a very good and stable FPV signal.

Visuo XS809HW Wifi FPV 2.0MP Altitude Hold - Complete REVIEW and FLIGHT TEST (9 min 33 sec)


The Visuo XS809HW Wifi FPV folding drone records relatively good 720p HD video thanks to his 2MP camera. Put into your backpack and take it hiking.

The quadcopter's arms are foldable to make it very portable, such as in a backpack (similar to DJI Mavic Pro). Altitude hold provides relatively stable flight for more steady video.
Impressive flight time of close to 10 minutes.

Can be controlled and flown via its controller or your smartphone/tablet.
Features buttons are all well labeled. Records relatively good quality 720p 20fps HD FPV video directly to a microSD memory card inserted into the quadcopter. Will also record video to your phone via WiFi, however the WiFi transmitted video is of lower VGA resolution and in my case, failed - Camera lens can be manually moved up or down XSW UFO app is available on Google Play and Itunes : you can find it by scanning the QRcode on the manual.

Good aspects are control and FPV range of about 80 meters, headless mode, folding arms and one key return.

Bad aspects are proprietary battery.

Features:
Wifi transmission system provides easy and fun FPV flight.
2.0MP 120 FOV wide angle HD camera can take photos and record 720P videos.
Foldable design, portable and easy to carry.
Tiltable camera to adjust view angle.
Unique fuselage design and high quality painting, outstanding appearance.

Yes, even If I'm actually 43 years old, I've just ended the quadcopter High School: my first quad was a Cheerson CX-20, the best drone for learning components and settings. The best quadcopter also to learn how to troubleshoot problems.

And thanks to CX-20, I've started teaching and helping each others on how to upgrade/troubleshoot their respective arducpoter drone, by the launch of my Yuotube channel DRONELANDER.

Many video's are focused on Cheerson CX-20 but they can be used even on different quadcopter equiped with APM or PIXHAWK.

And this is my first and latest building: so proud of it and any time I see it flies, the only word that I can say is WOW!!!
