I am a very experienced drone pilot and have flown a dozen different types in the past 4 years or so. I got this one today and had it flying as soon as the batteries (remote control unit, monitor, and drone). These are my first impressions:
This drone is a pleasure to fly. Even without GPS, it is VERY stable, but it does, of course, drift with the wind. Overall it is a fantastic drone for the price and I highly recommend it as the first drone for a beginner.
This drone is a miniature (and much less expensive) version of the Yuneec Typhoon, which I also own. It is FAR superior to the Hubsan drone series in both stability and camera. (I have 4 of them.) It, of course, does not compare to the series of professional drones offered by dji, which I fly mostly. One really big plus is that it comes with an excellent remote control unit which includes a very clear and bright 4.5-inch display.
I hope to post a video of my next flight. The first flight went very well, but I more concerned with putting the drone through its paces than I was about making a video.
Here are some additional points:
I had trouble getting the motors to start at first. The start/stop button did nothing. I found that moving the left (throttle) stick fully up and down twice solved the problem. However, sometimes the start/stop button does not stop the motors, and I have to use the backup method to stop them. (Put both sticks to the bottom outside.)
The drone construction is excellent. It is a hard and sturdy plastic, not cheap film-plastic like some other small drones use. The propellers seem like they are made of very strong and tough plastic, although I'll have to crash it first to find out for sure.
The drone weighs 4.2 oz stripped, 4.8 oz with battery, and 5.1 oz with battery and prop guards. So with battery it's just over the 4.5 oz threshold requirement for registration with the FAA.
The battery and display charger lights are the reverse of most other systems. The red LED comes ON when it is charged rather than the other way.
The battery compartment on the drone is a bit tricky to figure out. It does not have a press-release mechanism like the Typhoon does. You have to carefully pull the door down with something like a screwdriver until it pops over the latch tab.
In flight, I did not see a low battery indication anywhere on my first flight. When the battery runs down, the drone will land immediately wherever it happens to be.
I just posted a short test flight in my driveway. As you can see, the video is very jerky, not professional at all. That's because this drone does not have any real gimbal system...it's all fake...just for looks. It's good enough for a beginner, that's all.
I can't seem to find any on-line user manual. I would like to know more about the control unit. There is a SPEED button on the upper left which apparently allow three levels of control sensitivity. The TURN button on the upper left is still a mystery to me, but it may have to do with allowing the drone to do rolls and loops. The Headless Mode button does work, so if you are beginner you might want to know how it works in case the drone gets away from you. Headless mode comes in real handy when the drone is too far away for you to see which way it is pointed and you just want to get it back as soon as possible. I'm still checking to see if the "A Key Return" button works well. Again, I wish I had a manual so I didn't have to figure these things out the hard way. There are several pages of user instructions that come with the drone, but the English is so bad that it is humorous.
I flew five flights yesterday with no crashes. Then I noticed that one of the motors was no longer spinning freely. It catches briefly on something every 360 degrees of rotation. I think something has come loose in the motor gearbox. This is the only one of my drones which uses gearboxes on its motors. The reason for using gearboxes is to match high-speed electric motors to relatively slow-speed props. The difference on this drone is very obvious because there is very little prop noise, but you can actually hear the gear boxes rattling. I generally don't like gearbox drones because the motors are less reliable than drones with the props directly mounted on motors.
I'm returning this drone because I think the gearbox problem is bound to get worse. I ordered another one because I want one of these drones in my fleet because it is so good for practicing flight control in tight spaces. I still give it 5 stars.
I got my replacement last night and have flown it four times today. It's a lot of fun to fly, and it's great drone for practicing flying skills. Besides always being disappointed at how short the flight time is, the only real irritant I have with this drone is that when it decides to land, you can't do anything about where and when it comes down. So you have to keep track of the flying time and make sure that it's over a good landing place when it decides to land.
I've been flying this thing for about a week for at least 30 10-minute flights. I really love it as a practice tool for both beginners and advanced operators. I do want to add a note about the engineering of this drone. As I mentioned previously, it uses geared props, meaning that there is a gear reduction drive between the motor and the prop. This means several significant things: There may be a sacrifice in reliability because of potential gear stripping or foreign objects getting in the gears. But this also has several advantages. Because the props spin slower, they do not break in crashes nearly as often. They are proportionately larger and have a greater pitch than on drones with direct-drive props. It also seems to make this drone much more stable than direct-drive drones such as the Hubsan models. A slower spinning prop also is not as dangerous as a faster spinning one. I've been cut on my bare arms several times by those little Hubsan plastic blades and I don't think these JXD props would be nearly as dangerous if I were hit with them.
One other VERY IMPORTANT thing is to remember that all of these drones can cause serious eye damage or blindness. Always wear some sort of safety eyeglasses when flying them,. If you give your kid one of these, also give him/her a pair of safety glasses. Don't fly around people, especially if they are not also wearing safety glasses. These small drones inevitably get out of control, so don't risk blinding someone when they do.
So what's the problem? Just about everything once it gets in the air. I'm thinking I got a bad flight controller that passed QC because it "turns on and goes" - a common problem with cheap drones.
-The altitude hold is very fickle: sometimes it holds and other times it drifts up or down.
-It cuts out mid air all the time. I had it out twice and it fell out of the sky inexplicably about 5 times. (This isn't user error. I have lots of drones and am a pretty good flyer.)
Then there's the "headless mode" and one key return. I don't plan to use these modes much, but they're nice to have if you lose orientation. In this case, they are pretty random and completely useless. I almost lost it in a tree trying out headless mode. So I reset it and tried again, worked kinda once, then went random again.
Over all, I have a feeling this is a good drone for the price if you don't have bad luck. With all the positive reviews, my experience can't be common place. That doesn't justify the experience though, so my bad rating can play into the average as it should.
This works as advertised. It is easy to fly, has the best range in its class, the FPV works perfectly, I experienced no lag, the video quality was even better than I expected. The barometer based hover functionality works flawlessly. It's designed and built very well, and can take a few rumbles no problem. Overall it's just a great package and is super fun to fly. And it does not feel like a toy in my opinion. I recommend buying at least two extra batteries so you have 3, any less and you'll get frustrated wanting to fly but waiting for a battery change.
UPDATE: I've had no issues with this quadcopter at all until today. For no rhyme or reason about 2 minutes into flight it just dropped and fell. Not a low battery mode landing, it just stopped. The height from which it fell caused it to land hard enough to cause it to fly completely erratically now. Altitude hold won't work, it will slow keep creeping up. If you trim it out it will fix it until you press "up" again. It will suddenly start flying right or left right after you start it (and fast) and the only thing you can do is emergency stop. I've taken such good care of this and have treated it like a $1,000 drone, so I have no idea what made it just die in mid air and come crashing down.
The most frustrating part is that I am now just a few weeks beyond the return/exchange time frame. So that really sucks.
