TOVSTO Aegean V2 Easy GPS Camera Drone Flight Test Review

This camera drone may be the easiest to setup and fly as compared to similar GPS drones in its price range. It’s ready to fly within seconds of plugging in its battery. Buy it here http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopters/pp_415859.html?wid=21&lkid=10107781

Pros
– Very accurate GPS system (actually uses both US GPS and Russian GLONASS satellites). It has rapid GPS/GLONASS lockon. Ready to go in seconds.
– Very responsive flight control board. Readily and rapidly responds to changes in wind gusts to keep the aircraft stationary in space.
– Does not require compass calibration
– Very simple easy to understand controller.
– Three flight modes: Manual provides sporty and fast flying, Altitude hold provides stable flight for aerial video for flying without a stabilizing gimbal, and GPS position hold provides ease of flight.

Cons
– Controller flight mode switch is mislabeled. Up position 1 is manual, center position 2 is altitude hold, and bottom position 3 is GPS position hold.
– Requires FAA registration.

Big thanks for your advice on it !I think a motor or motor wire connection went bad the way it just tip to one side and dropped sideways down would .it did bond when looking for it but with out doing a cal 1 and cal 2 it will not show any info to where it is .next time I’m going to all was fly with the low battery alarm for 2 dollars .too make sound to find it.thanks for getting back to me. I going to order a new one from your video web sight

dan vargas says:

can you do a review on the tovsto uluru pleas reply

woodstoney says:

You should review the model before you show the viewers your video review so as to provide accurate information.
I’d vote for using the phrase, “Altitude hold” instead of “Position hold” as it is more definitive. There appears to be quite a difference in what you’re describing compared to what’s being shown on the screen. Lag or editorial lag. Final observation is the wind noise. Agreed that a foam covered mic or other wind baffle would be more enjoyable for your viewers and listeners.
Otherwise, Nice model review.

stanley flinchum says:

great quad. good review. thanks man for what you do

Allan Dudek says:

Hey Quadcopter 101 so it was just my bday and I’m looking for a good quad for about $200-$300 with a decent 8mp-14mp camera any recommendations?

M Gonzalez says:

Im looking for my first drone, I need something with an object follow feature to get footage at my shooting range. Is there anything in the $500 range I can get into? Thanks Quadcopter101 for the thorough vids, i am learning a lot from you so far.

Allan Dudek says:

I don’t really know what broke but first I flew in a tree then the motors burned out so I replaced them then I tried flying it again I realized that headless mode is easy to fly in so then I was flying pretty good I followed a lot of your fly guides and I was flying good but then I crashed it and it fell onto concrete and when I want to start the drone one motor just turns on then off then on and again again and again

vivahuntsvegas says:

Where are located?

Jerald Gayap says:

It is like a Dji phantom

Quadcopter Reviews says:

Great video as always. Thank you so much for sparking my interest a couple years ago in this amazing hobby! Neat little quad, but a little pricey. I’ll bet if you replace those dampening balls with DJI ones there would be zero jello. Keep on flying brother!

Drone LV says:

Looks a lot like my X380!

Drones en el cielo says:

Hello quadcopter!!!
When I can arm the engines, when the lights blink green to yellow, that’s when it’s ready for engines to arm, what happens if a green one goes while I’m flying? Thanks Andy, I’m Spanish but I insinuate myself in all your Tutorials For my channel, thousand thanks !!!!

Reviews By Brian K says:

what kind of camera do you use to film your videos were the sound is so clear.

Gadget Inspector says:

Really stable video even without a brushless gimbal. Very surprising. Do you think a gimbal could be installed on this one though?

long nguyen says:

how much is this

Jurne Molina says:

Which one would you recommend thinking about getting this one or the UPair One for videography

KennyB123Fly says:

Thanks 4 the View of that Quadcopter. It looks like a Good 1 for the $$$…

Marv JS says:

Is there a way to increase the distance and altitude?   Great Video.

Bill Karoly says:

I look forward to your reviews. Thanks for doing a great service.

Atradies Inc. says:

I think i rather have the Hubsan around the same price with follow me mode

Brad Miles says:

hello quadcoptor101, just wanted to pass on some info. I ordered this Tovsto V2 using the link provided in this review. I received it 3 days ago and upon unboxing and setup, I discovered the 3S lipo had a dead cell. 2 weeks of waiting only to wait longer. I honestly don’t know what all the hype is over GearBest. The website gets flagged as a security risk , they sent me a defective product, and demand videos of defective product demonstrating it’s defectiveness while keeping the video size less than 2MB. Do the math , 2MB of video is about 1 sec. They won’t even deal with me until they get a video. heck I can’t even get a picture to upload to their customer service site. This was my first experience with GearBest , and I can say with total certainty , it will be my last. I think that if you provide a link to purchase a product that you review, you should be forth coming about the difficulties that one may experience from buying direct from China and that should weigh into your review as well. I have 2 batteries coming from amazon and I can only hope the quad works better than the battery supplied with it.

Finn McKenley says:

So what camera is is exactly and where do I find it ( a real one) I’ve already have been fooled and bout a fake

Gareth Rogers says:

really surprised at how stable it is… thanks for sharing

Junior V says:

nice quad. but my opinion save your money and get the p3 standard. you won’t regret it. I get 25 minutes time and good range.

Suazzz says:

I love all your vids keep them coming I wait everyday to see one

Kaloof says:

Very cool capturing you deserve alot of likes, Keep going !

Nick Beesley says:

Need help… If you were to buy one drone under $200, which one would you buy. (picture, distance, quality, etc) -Thanks

Guitarmage 007 says:

Is this a pro or toy grade quadcoper?

East Coast Drones says:

Tovsto has a nice version with FPV and a gimbal with 4K camera for $315.00. 5400 battery with 1000′ range. Would love to see that tested.

Joshua Felty says:

I am going to save up for this one. I wish it could go higher, wonder if there is a hack on that.

Aeroica Gaming says:

As far as FAA rules on altitude you should clarify that it’s 400ft in the absence of any structure but if you are near, as an example, a radio tower, that is 1000ft tall, you are allowed to fly 1400ft (400ft above the structures highest point)

adam benson says:

Great video as always,nice quadcopter 🙂

MGamer04 says:

80K,yeaaaahhh:)

Gonzalo Velasco Conde says:

Hi, nice video !!! un question please: Where is the Serial Number in the drone ? inside? thanks!

abdullah ihsan says:

can you add a telemetry module?

bruce don says:

Do you like it better then the h501c ?Even though my h501c crashed after the first 5 mins it had a full battery,I did have 12 sat,and did bind it to tx.it did not land itself. It did not RTH it was at hover at 30 meters and camer on the props are self titing ??it just tipped to one side and fly down in the woods lost for ever!i ask so I can get this one or the h501c one more time. I don’t know which one is better?safer and will do as advertised

Inspire Skill says:

Is there already a camera on it?

Brandon Mitchell says:

The info provided about the rules in the USA is not exactly true . There are ways you can legally fly as high as you want and as far as you want if you are an AMA member and following their guidelines . As of now , there are no laws that are breakable , meaning , that it’s not a law but a suggested guideline that they want you to stay under 400 feet in the USA but is not a law . I encourage anyone that is interested to do some reading and research about AMA and FPV flying and altitude flying 🙂

Paul Golden says:

good review as always. .good work mate..

WILDcorp says:

I have a request. Could you try and do a review on the Tovsto Uluru? Not much out there as far as reviews.
