CX-10WD Altitude Hold FPV Nano Camera Drone with Updated App Review

This tiny little FPV quadcopter is so much fun that I’ll fly it anytime anywhere even in the rain (not recommended though ;-). Find it here
This nano FPV quadcolpter has very effective altitude hold which allows easy control and flying via its WiFi app. It also comes with an RC controller that allows highly maneuverable flying of the quadcopter.

– Nice new controller design.
– Controller also serves as quadcopter carrying case, and also includes a phone holder.
– Very effective altitude hold feature.
– Automatic takeoff and automatic landing either via the control app or RC controller.
– Can easily be controlled either with the CX-10WiFi app or its provided RC controller.
– The altitude hold feature works particularly well in easing flight control with your phone if you fly using your phone’s gravity sensors to control pitch and yaw.
– The provided controller allows highly maneuverable flying of the quadcopter. And it is a suprisingly good flier when flown with this controller.
– Does not require FAA registration.

– Google Play version of”CX-10WiFi” app always defaults to “ON” control when the app is started. This causes the app to immediately take control away from the RC controller once time the app is started. In order to fly FPV with the controller, you’ll need to instead install an updated version of “CX-10WiFi”. The following link shows how and where to download the updated version
Hopefully Cheerson will soon get around to also updating the Google Play version.
– Video records to your phone via WiFi. Frame drops are frequent, and video resolution is low at 640 x 480 pixels.
– Flight time is short (a little over three minutes) due to the combined power requirements of the quadcopter, camera, and FPV transmitter.
