Advanced GPS assisted hovering: GPS mode enables precise positioning and prevents drone loss. Simply move the GPS switch to the on position before operating the drone to use all the GPS features such as Return to Home and Low Voltage Return to Home. You need wait approximately 1-2 minutes until you achieve a GPS signal of at least 7 after the drone is paired.
Auto Return to Home: Very precise GPS assisted return to home feature for seamless flights. The drone will land within a 10 ft. radius from the home point.
Smart Return to Home: If a strong GPS signal is available (more than 7 satellites on the LCD screen) and the home point is recorded at takeoff, press the return home button. The drone will fly back to the home point. You can use the remote controller to guide the drone around obstacles during the smart RTH procedure. You can press the RTH button again to exit RTH procedure and regain the control of the drone.
Failsafe Return to Home: Failsafe RTH will be triggered if the remote control signal is lost for more than 6 seconds, the GPS control system will guide the drone automatically to the last recorded Home Point. Regain control of the drone by press the RTH button if the remote control signal is recovered.
Low voltage Return to Home: The drone will perform a Low Voltage Return to Home function when the battery is low. When the drone’s battery is at 50% and the drone's altitude is over 300 ft., or the drones distance is 900 ft. away, the drone will automatically fly back to the original Home Point. When the drone’s battery is at 20% and the drone’s altitude is over 45 ft., or the drones distance is over 45 ft. away, the drone will automatically fly back to the original Home Point.
4 Throttle control modes: The throttle control mode is set to mode 2 by default. Left-hand and right-hand throttle are available control modes for users who prefer non-standard controls. There is a total of 4 control modes.
Amazing Live Feed/FPV/VR

The 5G Wi-Fi zero-latency real-time image transmission reaches Up to 500 Meters (1640 ft.) FPV distance. Its up to the area you are flying, the less interface such auto motors, TV signals, mobile networks etc, the longer FPV tansmit range it will be. The App is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones.
New generation two-way 2.4 GHz remote control: Enhanced control of the transmitter to 1 mile for the ultimate flying experience.
Altitude hold, 1-Key take-off / 1-Key landing: Take control quickly and easily with 1-Key take-off and landings. With the simple press of a button, your drone will rise to a height of 5 ft. or land. This feature is perfect for beginners who are not experienced with take-off or landings.
Super long control distance and flying time: Up to 1 Mile remote control distance. Removable 7.4V 2100mAH, high-capacity rechargeable battery with energy-optimized system gives you a vastly improved flight experience. Up to 20 minutes of flight time if you disable the Wifi FPV transmitting, video recording and GPS features.
Brushless motors with independent ESC’s (Electronic Speed Controllers): The 4 powerful brushless motors have the power and precision needed to give you the ability to speed up, quickly increase or decrease altitude, and stop immediately. They work with lightning-fast ESC’s to make your F18 fast, agile, and responsive. Each motor is managed individually by the electronic speed controllers. The innovative auto-braking system is mounted on the ESC's to not only effectively protect the motors, but also ensure a safe flight. Independent ESC’s provide built-in automatic lock protection, high-temperature lock protection, and avoid ESC burn out due to deadlock.
Super bright LED lights for night time flying: Your F18 isn’t scared of the dark! Fly it at night and enjoy the show. 4 glorious LED lights make night flying as easy as flying in the day. Your Contixo F18 will look great in the night sky.
6-Axis Gyroscope: 6-axis gyroscope has 3 accelerometers in addition to the three standard orientation sensors. This added feature makes the 6-axis more resistant to altitude displacement. The accelerometers compensate for any unwanted acceleration or movement in the three dimensions. This ensures the drone can fly freely without interference by wind, going too high or falling to the ground. Any user learning to operate remote aircraft can easily make sharp turns with the assistance of the 6-axis gyroscope.
Headless Mode iOC (intelligent orientation control): Headless mode is an excellent feature for beginners. With headless mode engaged, you will not have to worry about orientation. The drone will move forward, backward, left, or right regardless of the way it is facing. In other words, if you lose sight of the drone because it’s too far away you can simply engage headless mode and move the directional stick backward and the drone will return towards you.
WARNNING! When you activate headless mode, the onboard flight computer always aligns the drone movements to be relative to the controller at the initial point of takeoff. In other words, if you activate headless mode and turn your body by 90° in any direction the control reference will be dramatically lost. The drone will only know the orientation based on the way the drone and remote were facing at the initial pairing process. DO NOT CHANGE YOUR PHYSICAL ORIENTATION WHEN USING HEADLESS MODE AS IT WILL HAVE A DIRECT EFFECT ON THE ORIENTATION OF THE DRONE MOVEMENTS. If you’re going to use headless mode, stay facing the same direction.

The first and most important thing that I like about it is the fact that it has a builtin GPS. This means the quad-copter can hover at one exact spot even if that day is windy. The GPS also allows for in the Return to Home function which is super important.
Return To Home [Manual & Auto]:
When the GPS is enabled it will record the precise location of take off so the quad-copter can return to it (1) when you want it to [manually], (2) when the battery is low [automatically], and (3) when for whatever reason the quad-copter doesn't get signal from the controller [This can be due to low battery of the controller or when you accidentally fly it too far where it go out of range of the controller].
Camera & FPV:
The camera on this quad-copter is HD and provides a very sharp image/footage both when viewing it on the app as FPV (first person view) and as recorded. The also allows for you to even wear the phone in a VR headset so you get an immersive FPV. The pictures and the videos can be saved to the quad-copter SD card or saved on the internal cellphone storage.
It lasts about 15min of flying and charges in about 2-3 hours.
The bag is super useful as it's a huge hassle to take the quad-copter anywhere without it. I had other cheaper quad-copeters that didn't have bag with them and I had to try to fit in in my bag packs if I didn't want to take them on the go with their boxes. But with this bag which is not that big everything that I need for the quad-copter will be in one place and easy to take to anywhere specially since a lot of the shots I want to get are at places that require long hike or walk so I can always just wear it and hit the spot I want to take video.
This mode if enabled (switch on the controller) allows you to fly the quad-copter in way that forward stick flys it away from you and backward stick brings it close to you regardless of where the camera (the head) is pointed at.
The controller is very easy to control. It has buttons for taking picture and video, for return to home, and easy take off and landing. You can also enable the GPS and headless mode from the controller with their respective switches. But what I really like about this controller is that it has an LCD that at all times the following information: (1) GPS active channels, (2) Altitude from home point, (3) Distance from home point, (4) Remote control signal strength, (5) Controller modes (left -vs- right hand), (6) Quad-copter's battery indication, (7) Controller battery indication, (8) Photo taking icon, (9) Video taking icon, (10), Headless mode indication, (11) Return home icon
The app works very smoothly. I didn't encounter any crash. Here you can view the quad-copter camera stream live and can also record and view the pictures and video. It also allows for 180 degree flipping the footage and make the stream VR compatible.
The setting up:
The initial controller pairing was very easy as you can see in my video. And after that every time you want to fly you need to calibrate the compass which requires a vertical and horizontal counter clock rotation. I went over all of these in my video as well.
1) Cost is biggest. For $300 you get a drone that has GPS, return to home, FPV FHD camera, and a nice carrying bag.
2) Drone is stable - take your hand off the controls and it finds its center. Not nearly as quickly or precise as more expensive models, but this is a key feature for new pilots. It allows you to STOP.
3) Good camera quality. Okay… Not 4K, but for me that is usually overkill IHO.
4) Good fly time on a battery. I have no problem getting ~20+ minutes on a battery. But still suggest you buy at least one more!!!!
5) No issues with remote control reception. I tested ~400-500 feet, but lost sight of the drone at that point and since I did not have FPV working, I brought it home. See CON below.
6) Probably subjective, but I really like the looks of the drone.
1) Biggest issue for me is the 5G WIFI reception that supports the FPV (first person view) is HORRIBLE!!! I have tried in multiple locations and it routinely starts to have the screen freeze on me at 200+ feet. The strange part is if I stop and hover, the live feed will come back to my display – but very spotty at that point. This makes flying dangerous in my opinion and the drone should ALWAYS be in line of sight. Once again, if you are using this as a training drone, you should be doing that anyways. But for experienced pilots, this is a DEAL BREAKER!!!!
2) I wish the remote was a little more sensitive. I find it difficult to control the speed. Seems to either want to go full speed or slow.
3) No gimbals on the camera. So you get a lot of jerky video when turning. To me, that alone makes any recording unusable. Could be a personal preference.
The carrying bag makes carrying this drone around a breeze.
GPS assisted hovering
Auto Return to Home function (brings your drone back to the take-off point when the battery is low)
HD FPV camera captures excellent footage.
Excellent instruction manual with actual pictures
16 minutes of flight time
None really, the only thing that can be better is if the drone came with two batteries. I will be contacting the seller to purchase an additional battery.
Overall, I am a happy customer. I will be uploading many videos for years to come with the help of this drone!
