We took a close look at the CUEYU SG700 RC drone. It has gesture photography, automatic altitude control, 6-axis gyroscope, 360-degree rotation function, various speed modes, and Wi-Fi transmission.
In this report, we will explain all the important technical details and show you what this model is capable of.
The maximum flight range is 80 to 90 meters, and the flight time is 8 to 10 minutes.
Combined with numerous other features and the fact that this model only costs around 50 euros, it creates an exceptionally good value for money.
Drone technical data and facts
It’s not just the design of the drone that is attractive. The appearance of the remote control is also especially high-quality.
Plus, you can take great selfies with this model, and you can rely on the drone to automatically maintain height and position.
When placing the drone with the camera, you can also focus on the live image that is being transmitted to your smartphone.
Installed a 2.0 megapixel optical flow camera and a dual chamber indoor switch.
Sounds a little, but not bad for aircraft models in this price range. Most drones under € 50 don’t even have a camera, let alone live FPV image transmission.
What’s really surprising to us is the ability to fold the drone. This makes it even more compact and you can easily transport it wherever you go.
When folded, it measures 17 cm x 14.5 cm x 6 cm, and in full size it measures about 40 cm x 30 cm x 6 cm.
The rest of the exterior also resembles DJI models. The rotors are relatively large in diameter for ideal lift, excellent flight stability and high speed.
This drone model has a flight battery with a capacity of about 900 mAh, which operates at about 3.7 volts.
As already mentioned, the flight time is 8 to 10 minutes, while charging takes about 80-100 minutes, which is about 10 times longer.
The remote requires 2 x 1.5 volt AAA batteries, unfortunately they are not included in the package!
Gesture photography: You can take photos with gestures.
Headless Mode: In this mode, also known as Headless Mode, the drone flies in the direction you control it, regardless of head position. Especially inexperienced drone pilots and newbies benefit from this.
3D Flips: You can also create 3D tricks at the touch of a button. The drone then fully automatically returns to the hover state.
Wi-Fi remote control and image transmission: you can use your smart phone in the remote control (below). The image material is then streamed from the drone to your mobile phone in real time via Wi-Fi.
Auto Altitude Control: With the built-in altitude barometer, the drone can automatically maintain its altitude, making it easier to fly the drone.
6-axis gyroscope: The gyroscope installed here stabilizes the drone using multiple sensors. Therefore, when you release the control stick, the aircraft will automatically balance itself and maintain its position.
