Cheerson CX10D - Review (Courtesy of Banggood)


Hi all,

Today I will be reviewing the Cheerson CX10D. This nano boasts something never found in a quadcopter of its size yet, altitude hold, yet a camera isn't present. Its brother the CX10W, which I also own, was a bit of a hit and miss with poor control letting it down. Let's hope Cheerson's latest release fares better.

Each CX10D comes with some special design, although this doesn't add to performance it really helps in the looks department.

Description:

The transmitter doesn't fail in the looks department either, continuing with the same theme.Something to note is the transmitter is spring loaded, the throttle stick will return to the center if you let go. This makes binding more difficult but not impossible

The transmitter will require 2 'AAA' batteries to operate.

Description:

A manual is also included and required. It did a perfect job of explaining the alternate binding and arming procedure and will probably cover most of your questions.

4 spare propellers are also included.

Flight:
Altitude hold is defiantly something of personal preference and something to get used to. Personally I prefer no altitude hold and prefer no to little extra support from the FC. In saying this altitude hold will be something that beginners adore, making flight much more easier. Flight time is 5 minutes, average for a nano. Range is approximately 40 metres, not bad. Yaw and pitch does change as you dial up the rates, buy even at the highest rate it can't handle any wind. This is normal for a nano but limits its ability for outdoor operation.

More to come.

Pros and Cons:

Pros:


Altitude Hold
Packaging
Looks
Rates
Price

Cons:

No way to disable altitude Hold
Awkward binding and arming procedure.
Built in battery.

Suggested Improvements:

Get rid of the inbuilt battery and make sure there's a way to disable altitude hold. If these things improve then it'll really sell.

Summary: A wonderful little nano that stands out of the background, a quadcopter that you should definitely keep an eye on.

I will be posting a outdoor flight, overview and a video demonstrating altitude hold. I haven't been able to gather any footage though, I'm using stock due to Melbourne's weather. But yes, the text part of the review is complete.
