The Simulus Mini quadcopter offers many technologies, is inexpensive and ideal for beginners.
It does a great job with a range of cool maneuvers, can fly stable and bring a lot of fun to the living room, but is also suitable for outdoor activities.
In this post, we bring you the most important facts about the Simulus drone.
There are many drones of this size and price range, and we have already tested some of them, but not all are so good that it can be said that buying is always beneficial for everyone. Whether simulus is right for you depends entirely on your individual needs and experience.
Points are already being deducted because the drone has no camera and therefore no FPV mode. Let’s see how many other technologies are in the model.
Size, design and weight
Despite the dimensions of 32 x 7.5 x 32 cm and rather light weight – about 100 g, Simulus belongs to the category of mini-drones.
Equipped with 4 large rotors and a powerful drive, you will achieve high acceleration and speed values.
In general, the design is somewhat similar to a UFO. Below are 2 large landing curves similar to those used on the DJI Phantom models. The material of the rotor blades is not rigid, but easily bendable and elastic. Other than that, the plastic of the case looks a little cheap, which is probably not important because the Simulus survives the accident without any problems.
The flight modes provide a ton of fun, with Simulus there are various 3D tricks to choose from that you can perform at the touch of a button as you wish.
Battery, range and flight time
A 500 mAh LiPo battery is installed, operating at an operating voltage of 3.7 volts. Unfortunately, the maximum flight time is only 7 minutes. It will take about 75 minutes to charge. Unfortunately, the ratio of flight time to charging time is underground. However, you can also simply replace the flight battery and thereby significantly increase the flight time, considering several stops along the way.
The maximum range is 100 meters, although this also depends on whether there are any objects between the transmitter and the drone.
A 6-axis gyroscope is used to stabilize the flight, which always keeps the drone in a stable flight, so the sim is always perfectly in the air, and even beginners can easily learn how to fly the drone.
After 360 degree rotation and tricks, thanks to the gyroscope system, it automatically returns to hover state.
However, the drone is quite fast, very maneuverable and maneuverable.

Pros and cons
- With Simulus drone, you can perform cool 3D stunts
- Parts can be quickly replaced
- Perfect for beginners as the mini drone has a 6-axis gyroscope.
- Replaceable battery – you can increase the maximum flight time
- You can set different speed levels
- 100 meter range
- Long loading times
- Sufficiently susceptible to strong gusts of wind – the drone can no longer hold its position
- No GPS for even more stable flight
Contrary to the opinions of various stores, we argue that this drone is not for professionals, but the ideal entry-level model for people with little flying experience.
What worries us: There is no camera, although at this price you can expect. On the other hand, the model has other advantages, such as a very good flying position, high speed and great maneuverability. Plus, there are cool 3D flips that can be done with the click of a button.
The 6-channel control is ideal for this, and it is especially easy for beginners to expand their skills as you can tune the drone to different speed levels and thus get closer to a higher level of agility.
