Headless mode: usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction. In headless mode, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction. The direction will be the same as your transmitter
ONE KEY RETURN FUNCTION: One key return function makes quadcopter easily to find the way home.Colorful and bright LED.
Didn't order this one from Amazon but this is a good flyer. Just like other reviews I do suggest a wltoys tx like the v686 or tarantula x6 for a much faster flight experience. Other than that, this is a smooth flyer that has decent speed with its stock tx. Might be more difficult for beginners to learn on but intermediate and even expert flyers will have fun with this quad. Average flight times are about 8-10 minutes which isn't bad for the performance. Parts are available with Amazon but I wish there were more available with Amazon Prime. This has instantly become my go to flier for daily flights. Range is supposedly 300 meters but I've been to scared to fly it it out that far. I actually have the xk x250 with FPV 5.8ghz version and the video and FPV works great. Will be doing more testing on the FPV range as well. If you're wondering between this and a Syma x5c, this is the one to get.
I bought two of these, one for my 9yr old son and one for my 11yr old boy. I read everywhere that you need to find a quadcopter to "learn to fly" before stepping up and spending a lot of money on one. For the price, I figured this would be a good start. I looked at probably 25-30 different quadcopters before settling on these. Here's what I can tell you from first time owners of quadcopters (I am no expert with these), they are really good fliers inside the house as well as outside, as long as there is minimal wind. These are very light and do not fly well with any breeze. They take a little to get used to controlling, but once you get the basic controls (and understanding of "yaw" and "pitch", that's the most technical language I've learned for these) these are awesome fliers. The other reason I decided on these is because of the flight distance these can go. I have had them at least 200ft from the controller and had no problem (manufacturer says...
I was disappointed that the altitude feature did not keep the quadcopter from crashing into the ground or flying up 50 feet. As far as a gentle landing that was also advertised if the quad lost signal, I would say dropping like a rock would be a better way of putting it. I had higher hopes that this new XK line would be an improvement, but alas for the money I will be steering clear in the future. The unit seemed to be a bit underpowered, I might add. And as this was not the model with a camera the flips would only be worse than the one I'm reviewing. The gear drive as with the SYMA X11 is a novel idea on the small quads, but that doesn't make up for a lack of overall pep. At least there are good sized props that are secured by a screw that has a treaded hole unlike those press fit ones that always go flying off. I would of sent it back, but I lost it on the second flight; not enough power to fight the winds even on high rates. That was almost the fastest fifty I have blown on a quad...
