300 meter range is for real!


The Tarantula X6 quadcopter has an advertised range of 300m, and they're not kidding! This is the first quadcopter that I've seen under $100 with such a long range, unmodified, right out of the box. Got mine from GearBest. Will ask them if they have any coupon codes to share.

Tarantula X6 Drone Test Flight (13 min 54 sec)

Nice video as usual 101. Had the same thing happen to me with another headless none gps quad...it just went crazy.

I think, as you without doubt know now, you are supposed to set it all up pre flight. Worked better for me, but still kind of weird.

Any chance (when you have time), you could do a video on the X6 headless function to see what you think?. Your better at flying these things than me despite any comments i may have made about pylons. I get all my stuff from Gearbest, so a nice coupon code would be great as well

I don't want much do i!?

Just did another video this morning (will release it on Sunday) carrying my 808 keychain camera, along with demonstrating its headless mode. You're right, the headless mode base heading is set at initial binding of the quadcopter. It remembers this heading throughout the flight (whatever direction it was pointed when you bound the transmitter).

I think they are all still recovering from the new year!. Must be a hell of a build up of work to come back to.

I have my name on one of these as well...looks great value for the bucks camera or not as you say.

Dam I went for the blue, Your def right, the black would def look more menancing !, Im going to get that one for my dad, He wants to use it to get to some remote islands in the middle of a huge lake just outside his back garden in Lydd On Sea. We worked out its prob about 200m at least to get to the first island, Theres amazing bird life out there but no one, as far as I know, has been able to film it. Thanks to 101's great vid im confident this quad will get there now, although the noise might frighten the birds off lol

Laff!

Plan B:...get your old fella a Syma X5 and keep the black one as well!.

Only joking, i know dads are important. I wish mine was still going. He would have loved quadcopters. He loved amazing birds as well...until my mother caught him .

Ps, the phone rang mid post!, X5 wouldn't go 200 meters...and he already knows..lol!

its up to you, maybe the Blue will look better in real life...i like the white prop guards on the blue one.

Maybe you could swap and change and make a sort of "Mixed Race" quad (can i say that on here!?) lol!

Either way it's something to look forward to

We all have to look after our old dad's while we have them, you write history with every escapade you do together.

I hope he films his amazing birds, and annoys his work guys.

Superb review as always Seby,

People who do things well are totally taken for granted nowadays...its a sign of the times.

You will have to learn to live with it
