SG900-S GPS FPV Camera Drone Flight Test Review

This GPS FPV camera drone would be a great first GPS drone for new fliers. Find it here

– Uses 2.4Ghz WiFi. Does NOT require newer 5G WiFi capable phones.
– 1080p HD camera records video directly to a microSD card.
– Controller has a built-in rechargeable LiPo battery.
– GPS/GLONASS drone with real automatic return to home and landing capability on command or on lost signal from the transmitter.
– Position hold, altitude hold, and headless mode capability.
– Advanced flight modes such as follow me, circle me, and waypoints.
– Advanced flight capabilities, FPV video, and telemetry info are available using the LW FPV app. LW FPV app is available on Google Play here and iTunes here
– 7.4V 1100mah battery provides close to 10 minutes flight time.

– Maximum FPV video range with 2.4Ghz is about 125 meters.
– Maximum waypoint range is limited to about 50 meters.
– I couldn’t get circle me to work, but it could be due to pilot error 😉
– Requires two micro USB chargers, 3.7V for the controller, and 7.4V for the drone’s battery. Make sure to double check that you are using the appropriate charger, or you may damage the batteries.

Getting quicker

DeadlyDiddly says:

Even with its app/camera -related issues I think I prefer the Visuo XS809HW I just watched you review Q101. It’s nicer looking, has a better TX and range too. It’s really good to see more easily-affordable GPS drones coming along though, it should make for less dangerous flying by beginners and less flyaways too.

I need this type of drone but with a camera that can look down too and has changeable batteries.
Which drone can do that?

didactylos4 diddy4 says:

It’s not bad. Big advance for quads of this type. It’s probably worth the money too.
_Given the interest in regulation changes this may be all we are allowed in the not too distant future_

GAproductions says:

Uwe K says:

As much as I appreciate your efforts, you too often rushes these things and make mistakes. Often, maybe always you do these videos without looking into the manual beforehand. Like in a recent video you didn’t know at first that it took a sd-card, this time you obviously didn’t know beforehand how to save to the sd-card. Also in you “pro” text you mention it would do circles, whereas in the video you came to the conclusion that it won’t. Too much of that, sorry, sloppiness lately.

Firman Tahyana says:

., another foldable GPS mini drone. Woq

TwoFeatherChannel says:

Battery level dropped 50% in only 3 minutes, @5:44 to 8:44.

Icantdrive55 says:

Looks like they need to do a little work to improve this one. Looks like it just fell out of the sky without warning at the end and wouldn’t let you override the landing. Good thing you weren’t over water. Looks like a nice bird otherwise. Thanks for the great review. I never miss one of your reviews.
