Compared to the cx20 in recent deals i doubt this was evwr worth £100. Decent toy for £40 tho

Shame the cheaper drones only fly for about 10 or so minutes. I do want to try one out but for the long charge for short reward, it puts me off.

Been on sale for same price previously

That's why you should buy spare batteries and a multi battery charger

can I attach a action cam to it?

yes you can attach a action cam to it youtube.com/wat…alE

good find ordered plenty of stock Stechford Birmingham heat added

Got mine a while back on a deal for £25 must have been a mispriced but it's a fantastic quad.

Or Buy 2 batteries , geez, it's a no brainer!!!!!!!

Not so easy to change the battery in mid flight though.

Just wait 10 years til batteries are better then.

Quite impressive - this brushless? Youll be able to fit the syma x5c fpv kit to it as well with a tiny bit of modding. I reckon modding the receiver aerial should give you double the range too.

Is it worth it then? Got one reserved at Preston 10 minutes of flying a poor but I'm sure there's something that can be done with that..

​Additional cost isn't really appealing, is it now...

The reviews say some batteries only last 5 mins and the quality is pretty poor with many have faults, thats why its cheap.

Very true, but what do you expect for £35????

The trouble with many quotes, folk have a bit of trouble usually because of their incompetence or just being unlucky & getting a dud. They then make it a mission to vent their spleen.

These things take skill to fly without crashing them and in some cases harming people, animals or even property. I have 2 quads that look identical to this, just different branding(Paid £35 on E-Bay) & they are absolutely amazing for the price. My Batteries last for 7 - 10 mins depending on how I fly it.

What do you expect for £35? Included is usually a remote/transmitter, batteries, spare blades, the quad itself and with mine, a decent screwdriver to assemble.

How do you feel about the fact it needs 6 batteries for the remote, maybe for this price you think it should come with those also? This is a total bargain as long as you get a fully working example.

From the reviews i have seen on YouTube they are brushed

If you were going to buy almost any quad at this end of the price range, then you would be buying additional batteries anyway, if that isn't something you want to do then maybe a quad isn't for you.

Not bad. It looks rather similar to the Yizhan Tarantula X6 which had pretty decent reviews. Tarantula can be purchased for around £40 from China so this being local has clear advantage. However, the fact that it looks similar doesn't mean it flies the same.

If it can actually fly for 10 minutes it's not bad at all as it is not a long-range flier. Also if anyone thinks about attaching a camera the flight time will be somewhat shorter.

Would one of them tiny cameras be much of a problem? I have one those worlds smallest cameras from China, I know quality will be poor compared to a go pro but surely would keep the flight time up? Guess it'll be a good one to start learning to fly them before upgrading to something better

I am well prepared


Keep em flying
