Full review of the Yifei XS-1 Phantom!


This is my full review of the Yifei XS-1 Phantom

I did other flight tests with this and forgot to mention in the review about the flips. The right shoulder button is the flip function and the left shoulder button is the rates function. It has three rates and the yaw changes drastically for each rate.

looks tasty. How does its speed compare to the other cheap quads? Having a full size transmitter is nice. Can it manual flip or is there a a button for it? Thanks for the being the first to review.

Thanks! It's quick! Around the speed of the Hubsan X4. I didn't do any flips in the review because I had posted an earlier flight demo with them, and just forgot. The yaw hypnotizes me. Haha. It's an auto flip with a button on the right shoulder. Really tight flips. Give itself a little throttle before each one. Sometimes actually gains altitude on them.

I think I just found my next quad. Love that it has good progression through the rates and already have a stocking full of batteries that will fit. The other Yifei model on Gearbest looks like an X5C clone which is no bad thing if it has anything like the flight characteristics. Remote looks the same too so hopefully the same protocol. Does anyone know the protocol type yet?

Not yet on the protocol. Yeah their other models are on the way for me. After this one I have high hopes. Even if the yaw isn't as crazy. Wouldn't be bad at all if they weren't if the pitch is deeper. It is so fun to fly though. Even on low outside it is quick.

Oh ugh those are UGLY. I dislike prop guards on the whole, but the ones I got with mine are pretty good as far as they go. Small and light and work well inside.

I agree. Why would you need prop guards that protect the inside? Useless extra weight.

I just realised I have a transmitter almost identical to that one but I have no idea what it came with or what it binds too?

Mine shipped today. I ordered, yesterday from Gearbest. They got it out quickly.

If you read the comments, Frequent Flyer says it flies better with the Eachine CG022 props. Which is good because I have quite a few.
