During our research, we were particularly positive about the X12 drone, so we took a closer look at it.

You get a 4-disc foldable flight model that also has WiFi FPV functionality for less than € 50 (Amazon).

The drone is very suitable for beginners as it has a 6-axis gyroscope and some security systems.

Here on Amazon you can also take a look at the model and buy it cheap! *


Optionally, you can purchase the drone in black, blue and red. The package includes all the parts required for immediate use of the quadcopter. This is, so to speak, “Ready to fly.” However, we recommend charging the battery before the first start.

According to the manufacturer, the X12 is not suitable for children under 14. But here you can decide for yourself. In our opinion, sufficient safety measures have been taken so that even young and inexperienced drone pilots can work with this model.

The auto return function is also very convenient so that the drone can easily return to you.


The model is available in different stores in different colors. If you choose black, the border will end with a few blue outlines.

The camera is located at the bottom in front. In addition, the legs are installed quite inconspicuously, they are under the corresponding motors.

We also particularly like the rotor blades, which have a particularly aerodynamic design so that the quadcopter can get the most out of the electric drives while being quite quiet at the same time.

In the event of an accident, you can easily and conveniently replace the propellers if they are damaged.


Although the camera has a resolution of only 2.0 MP, this is quite normal for this price segment. Other drones, which can be purchased for about 50 euros, do not have a camera at all.

The camera provides high quality photo and video recordings depending on the resolution. Both color depth and light sensitivity are ideal for 720P HD camera.

Thanks to the app and smartphone, you can transfer video images to your device in real time. It uses a reliable WiFi system. However, we recommend that you always keep an eye on the drone and not just fly according to the FPV image to avoid collisions.

Battery, flight time and range

Built-in 3.7V 1000mAh lipo battery provides a maximum flight time of about 12 minutes. You can also charge the battery pretty quickly within an hour.

The 2.4GHz remote control provides a maximum control range of about 100 meters. FPV Wifi signal doesn’t go that far.
