I am having a blast learning to fly this terrific little QuadCopter. I find you need quiet still air to get it to fly the best, and to get passed the fear of it flying away. Otherwise, you will be chasing after it on the down wind side or most of your time trying to get it to fly into the wind. Although it flys much better without the camera and lading gear attached. I bought a slightly heavier 650ma battery that helps to power thru the wind. The light weight of the body tends to make the copter kite up wards and climb while flying in the wind. I still get nervous watching it get smaller and smaller in that big sky while gaining altitude! Which it will do like a rocket! In fact its best performance is how fast it will climb. One modification I made to the blade guards is clipping off the outer portions of the guards that stick out at the ends like hooks. They don't seem all that nessasary for blade protection, but they DO GET HUNG UP IN TREES! Without these...
I received this YESTERDAY. It IS the latest ".1" version and came with a 4gb memory card. With no previous experience, I was flying within a few minutes. It required a slight amount of trim adjustment, but then was totally stable and responsive. Unfortunately, my test flight was at night in a heavily treed neighborhood. Both no-nos. My bad. The drone went high and far to the point of either being out of range, or low battery...or both. It started falling, and then the LED lights went out. It SHOULD have been in adjacent neighbors yards. After extensive searching multiple times throughout today, I never found it. Now it's raining. BE CAREFUL! I lost mine, probably forever, in the first couple of hours.
This is my fifth drone. I had a couple of the older version of this before and a Parrot (which was terrible). Despite their claims, this is NOT an upgrade from the first X5C. The flight qualities are great, but are essentially unchanged. The only things that HAVE changed are things that have been made worse.
First, the low battery indicator comes on WAY too late to do anything about. It basically starts flashing the lights, and then a couple seconds later you crash land. Unless you were at very low altitude when the low battery flashing warning happens, you're going to crash.
Second, the video quality on this is HORRIBLE. I know this is a bad thing to say, but I am really getting sick of the blatant dishonesty of so many Chinese companies. They advertise this as HD video, but it's actually VGA video that has been processed up to 720 using a horrible algorithm, making it lower quality than if they'd just left it VGA. Check out the pictures I included for what I'm...
