Review Holy Stone F180W Mini RC Drone FPV Quadcopter
Flight time was for one battery about 8 minutes, which is very good for this size. This includes a lot of flips, flying against the wind. Kit came with two batteries, free USB Power Pack (3600mAh). This is really awesome because I was able to recharge the Quartet without having to return to their homes. To be honest, I was a little surprised at any time when I got to fly drones. Expect much less time, so it was a very pleasant surprise. The included charger charging two batteries at the same time. This is very rare and very welcome.
Weight within the FAA, so registration is not necessary. The fan guards are very easy to take off. And friction vehicle and just pulled them out of the window. I crashed into this thing a bunch of times (at the base) without fan mounts, and zero problems. Just in case, it came with eight spare propellers. Thank you!
This set includes everything you need. For FPV, drone requires a Smartphone (Apple or Andoid) and some are “GX_UFO” or “SJ A1003 FPV” download store/play store. They’re both the same application power up kwadkobtir, and then connect to WiFi “DFD-#”, then start the application. You will immediately begin to stream from koadkobtir to your phone. Streaming video recorder on the phone and good quality. (Take a look at the video review.) You can also take pictures of the application.
360-degree flips and no quadripartite turns, which is pretty neat. Just make sure that you have enough altitude to volatility. I had some difficulty doing “precarious” because there was a lot of wind while I was testing, but pretty neat to see this thing shake even a little flip.
One of the coolest features of these drones is actually a console. Easily configurable to change mode 1 to mode 2. You can simply click a button on the transmitter, and then you can drag the left and right wheel housing, and swap them. This is genius! No need for your hunt 1 transmitter mode 2 or mode. And CD.
This quadcopter comes packed with extras, but even without them this is still an awesome quadcopter. Incredible pitch and maneuverability and of course, speed. That is the best feature in my opinion. The ability to record video in 720p and to fly with wifi FPV are bonuses. Yep, it looks just like the Hubsan X4 or the JJRC H6C. The JJRC H6C used to be my absolute favorite micro, but the HolyStone F180W is definitely my new favorite.

Final Conclusion Holy Stone F180W:
Overall, this awesome outdoor/inside kwadkobtir. It’s small (but not small). Limber. It has awesome “speed control” which allows you to determine the sensitivity of the control, and has the ability to switch from mode 1 to mode 2. Highly recommended! This is an honest review of discount display unit.
I recommend this little flyer. This is my first HolyStone quadcopter and I am very impressed by this company.
