Quadcopters for entertainment and gadgets are very popular in the drone market. We have already tested several models.
We were recently looking for a new drone and came across a Propel Star Wars SW-1983-CX – 74-Z Speeder Bike. It seems to be a very popular drone, despite the fact that the drone costs a lot of money for its size class. This model will cost from 55 to 65 euros.
The Propel Star Wars SW-1983-CX-74-Z speeder drone is small, handy and has some cool flight features.
The controller is equipped with multiple speakers, you can also connect a headset.
With other models in the Propel Star Wars series, you can conduct laser battles using infrared radiation. A drone that gets 3 hits lands automatically and is considered defeated. So the price is justified, because these features are quite unique.
Size, design and weight
The design makes the hearts of Star Wars fans beat faster. Models from the Propel manufacturer are hand-painted and the Star Wars figures are faithfully reproduced.
Material processing and quality are of course at a very high level, because durability must be guaranteed.
The model’s battery is installed in the seat of the Propel Star Wars SW-1983-CX – 74-Z Speeder Bike.
All parts of the drone are of very high quality and are partially made of soft plastic. For example, propellers are very flexible and flex when they touch an object, so they cannot break easily.
Camera, memory and FPV live image transmission
Unfortunately, the drone doesn’t have a camera or FPV function. The model is a pure gadget drone!
There are rumors that a camera with built-in FPV will appear at some point, but we have not been able to verify exactly if this is true.
Battery and flight time
The kit includes a flight battery and a spare battery, both rechargeable. The charging time is about 40 minutes and the actual flight time is 6 to 8 minutes. This is perfectly acceptable as the batteries are replaceable and the charge capacity is about 90 percent in just 30 minutes.
How well does this drone fly?
You can launch or land the Propel Star Wars SW-1983-CX – 74-Z Speeder Bike drone using an automated take-off and landing mechanism at the touch of a button.
Alternatively, you can launch the aircraft in T mode, in which case you will have to manually move and steer the model in the air.
Besides the T mode, there are 3 more flight modes that are graduated for different speed levels. You can fly at speeds up to 50 kilometers per hour with the Propel Star Wars SW-1983-CX – 74-Z Speeder Bike Quadcopter.
Pros and cons
- Perfect for newbies and Star Wars fans
- Excellent and high quality performance
- Special combat mode
- There are several speed levels to choose from
- No camera and no built-in FPV mode
Of course the price is high and it annoys us that this model does not have a camera, but there are many other possibilities. The drone is definitely unique and very, very well made. It is suitable for spectacular laser battles and other adventures.
We can highly recommend them to you. You can buy the model here on Amazon! *
