Review Holy Stone X400C Quadcopter Drone with Camera

The design of all quadcopters, made by Holy Stone is something that has to be mentioned, simply due to the fact that they look 100% original and different than other models, so they are the best choice if you want to have something unique.

Holy Stone X400C FPV is the best unit this manufacturer has to offer, simply because it has been made from high-quality components and it has the latest features. The camera on this model is HD, which means that it is capable of making amazing aerial photos.

On the other side, it also has powerful electric rotors, so the manufacturer recommends to use this unit carefully and carefully adjust the throttle, in order to avoid possible crashes and damages.

Due to the fact it is made from high-quality plastics (most components), this unit has a weight of just 1.1 pounds, but the dimensions are 16 x 8 x 3.2 inches. Thanks to these specs, it is capable of providing amazing flying capabilities, so flying this quadcopter is a real pleasure.

The flying time is 8 minutes, which isn’t much, but it is better than most models from this price range have to offer. A better thing is with the battery, simply because it requires just 1.2 hours to recharge. The manufacturer recommends cooling down the quadcopter after each flight, in order to maintain all components in a great condition.

This quadcopter is the best choice if you are a beginner in the world of drones and you are looking for a unit that offers the highest level of fun. The unit itself is designed to offer amazing flying capabilities and to be stable in the air. On the other side, it has impressive maneuverability, so flying is interesting and in many ways better than most drones have to offer.

One of the reasons why this drone is more than just good is responsive rotors. Due to this fact, the manufacturer has made a specialized controller which allows you to adjust the throttle response rate, which reduces the risk of damages and crashes and has the main goal to make flying more interesting. Due to these features, this drone is the best choice for people who just want to have a great time with their quadcopter.

The materials are lightweight, so this unit is a great choice for people who are looking for a lightweight quadcopter, simply because they are easier to fly and they offer more fun.

This specific drone has many advanced features such as headless mode and wiifi Live camera.Headless mode is an excellent feature for beginners which allows them to control the drone more efficiently and carefully. It also supports FVP real time transmission where you can see from the drone camera to your phone (iphone or android) in real time using WiFI connection. You don’t need extra WiFI connection as the drone creates a connection on it’s own and it can be viewable in the smartphone/tab. This is a very cool feature.

Keep in mind that this drone doesn’t have to be registered with the FAA and it doesn’t have smaller components, so it can be used by children. In fact, it is one of the best drones for beginners, and the manufacturer claims that this unit has been specially designed for people who are looking for their first drone.

  • User information in English is sometimes lost in translation
  • Guards for the propellers prone to breakage with frequent crashes
  • Changing the battery is kind of a hassle

Final Conclusion:
Holy Stone X400C is a small drone build for new pilots that want to have fun. You can use it for indoor or outdoor flying. It is a toy grade drone which means that even little kids can play with it. But if you are a professional pilot you can as well have some casual fun with this drone. The reason for that is drones agility and fast flying ability. If you are looking for a drone to make great videos and pictures, then please go search and read other drone reviews because this one will not satisfy you. But the camera on X400C is good enough for some amateur photography and some FPV fun. Also, some new pilots may have difficulties flying this drone, because of that I suggest you use throttle limit mode which will reduce the agility and speed of drone and increase the stability.

Clone of Review Cheerwing Syma X5SW-V3 FPV Headless Quadcopter Drone (Black)

Drones and quadcopters are one of the coolest things you can buy right now but they are quite new to the market which means it can be difficult to choose the best drone for you. When you look online and in-store there are a wide range of buying choices and new ones are released all the time as the technology advances. Ultimately the right way to make a decision is to sit back, take some time and read through some drone reviews.

These days you will find that not only are hobbyists, amateur photographers and casual users buying drones but also professionals. These people realize just what they can offer to their business whether they are a real estate agent or work in surveillance. It doesn’t stop there though, aside from the US military there are other huge organizations that have flight plans for them. Amazon sees a future where their packages are delivered using flight and already have big plans for this with Amazon Air. Could it be that one day everything you order could be delivered by these machines?

The X5SW-V3 drone is made of durable plastic, and is robust to falls and impacts. However, if you do manage to break something, you can always order extra parts and get back to flying. The enclosed pinion gears and motors is a nice feature which prevents strands of hair or material form damaging the motor.

There are red LEDs in the front, and green LEDs in the back. The LEDs light up the legs which makes for a cool visual when the drone is taking off and landing. The landing gear legs pop in place, and there are screws that attach the legs permanently. However, the clips are pretty strong, so you could opt to remove the screws, and save a bit of weight.

Headless/IOC function. Usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction. By using Headless/IOC, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction. This lessens the steepness of the learning curve and allows the pilot to enjoy flight while slowly learning each specific orientation of the quadcopter.

With Wifi Camera and built-in Wifi module, you can watch what your camera sees with a live video and aerial photos in real time on your mobile device via the App. Bring a new perspective to your photos and videos from the air. Wifi FPV allows you to view photos & video while flying It supports any IOS and Android phones. The cell phone holder keeps your phone secure all the time.

The camera quality for the Syma X5SW-V3 is surprisingly clear.

The 0.3-megapixel recorder can capture amazing footage which, while isn’t HD quality, definitely surpasses expectations for its price.

There aren’t many drones on the market today that offer FPV technology for such a low price. Being able to fly the Syma X5SW-V3 with a smartphone is definitely a huge upside to this particular model.

  • Good for beginners
Cons:
Very light – smallest wind blows takes the drone away and with stronger constant wind it barely can fly against it.
No optional flight altitude keep.
Front and back aren’t distinguishable in the day light. Had to tape bright tape to the front and change props to different color one.
  • Doesn’t support anything lower than Android 4.0;
  • Flying the drone with the guard attached can lower the battery’s life;
  • Poor camera quality
  • Poor video quality;
  • Wind bug not fixed;
  • Stalls and crashes without any reason;
  • Small issues with Wi-Fi reception;
  • No SD card slot.

Final Conclusion

The Syma X5SW-V3 throws many extremes into one package. On one hand, It is also one of the cheapest toy-grade quadcopters in the market that features FPV. On the other hand, its FPV feature is poorly implemented and suffers from a few drawbacks.

Great drone for beginners who wants to learn how to fly drone completely manually. Small enough to flight inside, comes with prop guards, camera and legs, which all can be dismounted to prolong flight time.
Very light, so falling on the ground (not asphalt or stones) will mostly do no damage to the drone.
