I don’t usually review low-cost GPS drones like this but the holiday season is coming and drones will be a great gift so what do you get for your money with the Bugs2 GPS quadcopter drone?
– does what it says on the box
– super-simple to fly (your nana could fly it)
– lightweight (thus safe) and durable (don’t ask!)
– pretty good value for money in a crowded market
– live video feed to smartphone app
– GPS can be slow to lock (no battery-backed-up alminac)
– can take off without a GPS lock to cause problems later
– only one battery and a *very* slow charger
– camera is “adequate” but not impressive
– live video range less than 300 feet
Bottom line: not a bad product for someone wanting their first GPS-equipped drone without spending a fortune.
