|Overall rating 3.9 / 5|
Today, we once again bring you a particularly affordable entry-level drone that has an amazing number of features, can fold, and even has a Follow Me mode.
The package also includes an excellent remote control that has a holder in which you can use your smartphone.
After that, the end device can receive live recordings from the drone camera. 5G WiFi does its job well and images arrive without lag.
In the app, you can also select the points from which the drone should fly away.
All in all, this model has an incredible number of flight functions, which we will briefly talk about in this report.
The drone comes in a rather neat package with small dimensions (40.5 cm x 13 cm x 27 cm).
When the handles are not extended, the model is 46.5 cm x 46.5 cm x 9 cm.
However, when folded, the drone is much smaller and you can easily transport it anywhere you go. However, the weight is about 300 grams, so a drone license plate will definitely be required.
It is easy to operate the model with a 4-channel remote control. It uses a frequency of about 2.4 GHz. In general, the remote control distance is about 600 meters. However, the FPV signal only extends over 150-250 meters.

An 8 MP camera is installed here, which has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, that is, Full HD. The images are transmitted in real time to the smartphone, which then displays the images in 1080P.
Due to the fact that the drone is so cheap for the price, it has a very good camera in our opinion. 8 megapixels are really good in this category. However, if you are looking for a professional model, you should take a look at the DJI Mavic Pro, which we tested very thoroughly.
The design, in our opinion, is just great! The arms can be folded, which is a decisive advantage, because the quadrocopter has significant dimensions.
Otherwise, the view is quite simple, there are no especially protruding sections. The 8 MP camera is located in the front part, but there is no gimbal, it is installed permanently.
The rotor blades are really quite large in diameter, they can be replaced in case of breakage.
Battery and flight time
Flight times are also really hefty for the price! A 2000 mAh battery is installed, which operates from a voltage of 7.4 volts. The Lipo flight battery delivers a maximum flight time of around 21 minutes, which is really huge when you consider that this model costs a little over 100 euros.
Unfortunately, charging times are between 180 and 200 minutes and are therefore relatively long. Accordingly, it is advisable to buy more batteries directly at the time of purchase so that the pleasure of the flight does not end in 20 minutes.
Pros and cons
- Fast and maneuverable drone with very good value for money.
- Large range
- Flight duration – up to 21 minutes
- Folding design
- Many different flight modes
- Headless mode and 6-axis gyroscope – ideal for beginners

The value for money is just incredibly good, you get a drone with GPS, Follow Me mode, Waypoint, 5G Wifi FPV, automatic altitude control, headless mode and many other features provided here for the price of a hammer.
Therefore, this model is definitely recommended for beginners. In the store, you can also choose different packaging sizes. The package contains 3 sets of 1, 2 or 3 batteries each.
