AKK LitisRC Cicada 180 RTF FPV Racer Drone Flight Test Review


If you've been looking for a FPV racer that requires no setup or configuration, this may be for you. This ready to fly racer is a great drone for intermediate fliers wanting to transition to FPV with little effort. Find it here (not an affiliate link)

and here is its flight demonstration.
AKK LitisRC Cicada 180 RTF FPV Racer Drone Flight Test Review (12 min 28 sec)


Pro's
- Comes with a Flysky transmitter already bound and ready to go with the drone. Even the mode switches are set up for you. No configuration software needed, although you can use such if desired.
- SPR F3 flight control board loaded with Betaflight 3.2.4
- Fast racer for its size.
- Very light yet strong carbon fiber, plastic, and aluminum construction (190 grams w/o battery).
- Basic version has 1306 3100Kv motors with 16A/20A ESC's
- 700 TVL camera with 40 channel FPV transmitter with selectable power levels of 25/200/500/800 mW.
- 850mah 40C 3S battery (XT30 connector)
- Beeper

Cons
- Basic version does not have OSD (although OSD is available on advanced version).
- Although great as an entry FPV racer for intermediate fliers, this is not an appropriate beginner's "learn to fly" drone.
- Basic version's props and motors are a good combo for speed, but less for maneuvering or pulling out of a maneuver. Give yourself plenty of altitude when doing flips and rolls.
- The basic version has its FPV antenna installed internal to the drone (advanced has external CP antenna). This causes loss of FPV signal at relatively short range. It may be necessary to mod to move the antenna external for better transmission.
- Basic version is only 3S battery capable (advanced version is 3S/4S capable)
