Review FengLan X5SW-1 4 Channel 2.4G 6-Axis Gyro RC Headless Quadcopter Drone (White)

If you’re just getting into flying drones then expect at some point you will have an accident and something will get broken. Don’t fret it, if you have chosen one which has many parts available then you can often get it fixed pretty easily and cheaply. Though you should also anticipate that eventually you have an engine or rotor issue which needs replacement. This happens to the best aircraft in the business so it’s perfectly logical that it can happen to yours too. If you choose one of the most popular models you will have no problems finding the parts that you need to get yourself in flight again.

Unless you are a serious hobbyist and veteran of assembling your own model boats, cars, helicopters etc then it’s better to choose a drone where the amount of user assembly is minimal. This is for your own benefit as there is less than can go wrong, it is similar to the argument people might use when comparing Macs to PCs.

It’s becoming more and more common and almost standard now that the higher end drones have the ability to be controlled from a smartphone or tablet. This is achieved by either a cellular, WiFi or bluetooth connection. At this stage it my not be ideal for all users because you may not have a smartphone with a strong enough antenna to keep a stable connection with the quadcopter. If you do some research and read reviews you should be able to easily find out whether your drone can work well with a smartphone when in flight, and your one in particular.

This 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.

Final Conclusion:

While there could be some things to change on this drone, all in all I am very happy. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy flying the drone as much as I do, and I have even ordered some virtual reality glasses to experience it on a whole new level.

Controls are easy enough. A small gust of wind and you’re out of luck. Over all for the price it’s a good cheap drone that is fun. Camera quality isn’t horrid, but close…no excuse for that. What you see on your phone is NOT how the pic or video will save as. But it’s fun gets us outside and we like it.

Review DROCON U31W Navigator Kids Drone with HD Camera

Looking to get a drone or quadcopter? In this unboxing and review we look at the DROCON U31W Navigator Drone. The U21W drone features an 720P HD camera, the ability to automatically take off and hover, and connects to your phone for more functionality. I have reviewed several drones and this one is by far the best. I found it to be extremely easy to fly and maneuver. I highly recommend the DROCON U31W Navigator Drone!

This drone is the best toy I have ever bought for myself. I had seen drones before and I have really wanted to get into flying them, so I did some research to see how much they would cost and what features I really needed for a good drone. I decided that I wanted to buy one that was mid-priced. Something that would give me a good value, but also expensive enough that it wasn’t going to break. This drone was just $89.90, but the features it has really made me excited to buy it. Once I received it, I found that it is very easy to use and I enjoy it a lot.

The DROCON U31W Navigator drone comes with some very cool features, ones that will make flying this drone both fun and easy. The Drone features a 720p HD camera with altitude hold that makes it easier to hover in the air and take photographs and videos. The drone can also be paired up with VR headsets and along with the cameras 120° field of view, this should make for a more immersive drone flying experience. It has a flight time of 7 minutes and control range of 30m. Definitely one of the more feature rich drones on this list.

Best Features:

My favorite feature on this drone is the camera. It has a wide-angle lens, so it really feels like I am flying up there with the drone and can see so much. This drone is actually pretty easy to fly. I’ve never flown a drone before so I didn’t know what to expect, but this one is actually not hard to fly at all. The altitude hold is a nice feature because I can get some great shots, and it helps me keep the drone steady. There is an alarm that will let you know if you are getting too close to being out of range, something that was really important to me because I have heard horror stories of people accidentally flying out of range and losing their drone. I also like the emergency stop function in case of emergencies. The dimensions are 15.6 x 13.4 x 6.5 inches.

  • 720p Camera
  • 7-minutes flight time
  • Altitude hold for easier flying
  • Compatible with VR headsets
  • One button takeoff/Return home
  • FPV Capability

What’s Included

 

  • 1×Navigator Quadcopter.
  • 1×Controller.
  • 1×7.4V Drone Battery.
  • 1×USB Charger.
  • 1×SD Card Reader.
  • 1×Spare Blades (4pcs/1 set).
  • 1×Screw Driver.
  • 1×User Manual.
  • Warranty: 1 year.

 

Overview

Let’s take a look at some advantages and disadvantages of this drone:

Pros

  • Nice 720pHD camera with 120 degree wide angled lens. Video is recorded directly to an onboard microSD card to avoid WiFi lag or frame skipping.
  • Headless mode, altitude hold, and automatic takeoff and landing.
  • Very stable flier. Perfect for video
  • Telemetry range and low battery warnings.
  • 720p FPV video viewable on your smartphone via its Flyingsee app available on Google Play here and iTunes here. Can also be flown by the app (but not recommended ;-).
  • Touch button take off. Just press a button and the drone takes off by itself. It then hovers at about 5 feet off the ground
  • Awesome app that allows you to not only control the drone from your phone but also record HD video and take pictures
    Well designed battery system that is easy to use
  • Video recordings show no vibration
  • Simple controller that has the ability to hold your phone
  • Similar to other drones from brands like TOZO, Hago, Holy Stone, Potensic, Force1, Cheerwing, Tenergy, Rabing, EACHINE, FANCYWING

I felt pretty comfortable buying this drone because it comes with a one year warranty. Most drones don’t have that, so I knew this company was reputable and a good one to purchase from. The fact that it comes with the camera is nice because I didn’t have to buy anything else.

Cons

  • Not very maneuverable or sporty (does not even have a flip button). Intended mainly as a camera bird.
  • Proprietary battery.
  • Although I didn’t fly out to its maximum range, its telemetry range warning would alert me when at approximately 20 meters distance.
  • Video shown on phone can be a little choppy
  • The antenna can get caught in the battery. Seems like it could end up breaking the Antenna
  • No extra drone battery
  • No AA batteries included

The design isn’t the coolest one on the market, but it still looks good when it is up in the air.

Final Verdict

It is so easy to fly, and I don’t have to worry about losing it. While it is not the most luxurious drone on the market, it does come with a lot of advanced features so I know it is going to keep me entertained for quite some time.
