Overall rating 4/5

Great for beginners, built-in GPS positioning system, 1080P HD camera, and also inexpensive. These key features, combined with the foldable design, make the SG900-S GPS drone special.

This makes the model very suitable for people who have not yet gained much flying experience, and the price is really unbeatable!

Although the camera is not comparable to the photo sensors of expensive flight models, it does provide a pretty decent image despite its 1080P HD resolution. In this report, we’ll explain what to expect and what to look for when flying this drone.

Technical details

The quadcopter is controlled by a remote control, at the top of which there is a holder into which you can insert your smartphone.

Newbies will easily start flying drones with this model. For example, you can use headless mode if you get disoriented. The aircraft flies exactly in the direction you move the joystick, regardless of the orientation of the drone’s head. Alternatively, you can use the auto return feature.

In addition, the SG900-S has 3 different speed levels, so you can gradually get closer to a new flying sensation and set a higher speed level with increasing experience.

The communication between the remote controller and the drone is quite stable thanks to the anti-jamming 2.4GHz technology. The safety issue played an important role in the production of this drone, which clearly speaks in favor of this model. In addition to GPS positioning and auto return function, there is also low over-current protection, 6-axis gyroscope and smart tracking mode.

Design

SG900-S

This model is really not big at all and also folds easily. You can fold the propellers and handles of this drone and stow them away to save space.

It is slightly smaller in size than the DJI Mavic, but very similar in design to this drone.

In general, the appearance looks very high quality and stable. The main color – anthracite – in combination with the surface structure makes a rather modern impression. Bevelled motors complete the quadcopter and give it a unique look.

A small 1080P camera is installed in front. Unfortunately, there is no multi-axis harness that compensates for drone movements and provides a stable image. Slight fluctuations in videos are perfectly normal.

The weight is about 200g, so in theory you won’t need a drone license plate in the USA.

Camera

In the store, you can choose if you want the drone to be delivered with a 720P or 1080P camera. Both versions have the ability to transfer an image to your smartphone in real time.

Photo and video files are saved on the micro SD card. Some buyers report that installing an SD card is a rather awkward job and you have to be careful not to damage the plastic.

The photo resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels and the video resolution is about 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Of course, the recording quality is incomparable with that of expensive models, but the color saturation and image sharpness are quite acceptable for this price segment and complement the good price / quality ratio of the quadrocopter.

Range, battery and flight time

The flight battery is a 7.4 volt 1100 mAh lipo battery with which you can fly for about 10 minutes. Charging time is about 180 minutes. However, the flight time can be extended with additional batteries.

Thanks to the powerful remote control, the range is about 300 meters, but the Wi-Fi signal for real-time image transmission is only 50 to 80 meters.As a general rule, we recommend flying the drone model only within sight, as required by German law.

Flight modes

In the event of a significant drop in battery voltage, the drone returns fully automatically. She will do this as soon as she receives a return order from you.

Another great feature that creates a great perspective is Auto Point Flight. This is where you set the point and radius around which the drone should circle using the app.

Then there are intelligent followers. The drone will fix you or your mobile phone and will accompany you every step of the way.

Beginners can also take advantage of modes such as altitude hold and headless mode, as well as one-button takeoff and automatic landing.

The feeling of flying

Quadcopter

The combination of GPS positioning mode and 6-axis gyroscope is very beneficial as it greatly simplifies the control of the quadcopter since you do not need to constantly balance the model.

Plus, you can control the drone at the touch of a button to flip or roll in all 4 directions. The flight model then returns to auto hover mode.

The drone responds quite quickly, reliably and flies very easily. That is why it is so suitable for beginners!

Conclusion

Conclusion

Yes, the product is cheap and may look like a cheap replica of the DJI Mavic. This drone is definitely not like that. The manufacturer will rely on the design of the Mavic, but that doesn’t mean the SG900-S GPS quadcopter isn’t quality.

The price is really cheap, but the drone can be controlled very well and has many automatic features to make it easier to operate.

Before starting, you should calibrate the compass to properly tune the drone. Note the two movements you must perform with the model for the calibration to succeed.

The SG900-S quadcopter is truly unmatched in this price segment. There is no gimbal, but this is very rare for a model under € 300. In the store, you pay around € 80 for a drone with a 1080P camera and around € 70 for a 720P resolution.
