This very long flying quadcopter includes a position hold system that allows it to hover motionless without pilot inputs. Also includes altitude hold and 5.8 Ghz FPV. Find it here https://goo.gl/uFv5PH and here is the cheaper WiFi version https://goo.gl/EUcE3T
– 2000mah battery gives it a very long flight time of over 15 minutes.
– Optical position hold in combination with an effective altitude hold systems provides an almost motionless hover. Good for new fliers trying to learn the basics of quadcopter control.
– 720p camera provides relatively good video. External add-on cameras are not really needed with this quadcopter.
– Includes 5.8 Ghz FPV transmitter and receiver. Provides relatively long range FPV video in excess of 100 meters.
– Although I didn’t fly it past its range limits, the transmitter also allowed flying out past 100 meters.
– Powerful brushed motors (I think that they’re Tarantula motors). Motors provided very sporty flying ability limited only by the altitude hold system (which unfortunately can’t be turned off).
– Also includes headless mode (and I apologize that I forgot to demonstrate it).
– The optical position hold works very when starting from a slow flight speed. But the position hold becomes less effective if the initial speed of the quadcopter is increased. It could “slide” quite a distance before slowing sufficiently to allow the position hold system to take over. Position hold also becomes less effective as altitude is increased, and is ineffective above 8 meters.
– Weighs more than 250 grams, will require FAA registration if flying in USA.
– It does have an automatic takeoff and landing button. Unfortunately mine did not appear to be operational.
