The JJRC quadcopter is pretty awesome. Yes, it flies using the app on your cell phone (once downloaded and installed) and I prefer using a transmitter, but for what you get with portability and easy setup and operation, it’s worth the trade-off to use and fly this quadcopter when you need it.

I won’t say this is my daily go to quadcopter, but it has its time and place like everything else. This folds up and is very light weight and makes it very easy to shove in a pocket or bag and carry with you when you leave the house or are going somewhere. This comes with a velvet carrying bag with a drawstring to carry this around with and store all the parts that come with it, which include 4 extra props and the battery charger.

The camera looks to be a 0.3 MP camera capable of shooting 720p. Not the greatest, but still holds detail and isn’t grainy looking and some people can’t tell the difference between 720p and 1080p anyway. The attached video has some video in from the drone camera in it.

This has three speeds at 30, 60 and 100% and with this being so lightweight, you need to be at 100% if there is any wind out in order to control this and fight the wind. The altitude hold on this (without GPS) is spot on and holds very well. It may float side to side but holds the altitude. The yaw and pitch on this are also pretty good and reactive and actually has some pretty good range on it for a WIFI drone.

You connect your phone to the drone WIFI, start the app and connect the app to the drone and away you go. The controls take a little getting used to and if you play games on your phone, should be no problem for you at all.

This does have one touch, takeoff and landing and will also autoland when the battery gets too low, so it doesn’t fall out of the sky and crash, nice feature. This also can be flown using the gyros on your phone and you can fly this by tilting your phone side to side and forwards and backward instead of using the on-screen controls.

This also has a 360 button on it to allow you to do flips. It’s not great at flipping but it does work, but it loses a lot of altitude, so you need to be up high enough not to crash it into the ground when you do it. It’s a selfie drone and not a sport drone, so I wouldn’t expect much in flips.

The lights on this (front white and back red) are very bright and easy to see and make this great for flying at nighttime as well.

Overall, nice portable and foldable quadcopter that takes decent pictures and videos (you’re not making a movie here) and flies pretty decently.

No Fly away tip: Turn off your mobile data on your phone/tablet and go into your settings and tell it to forget any WIFI connection you may have in the area you are flying this at the time. You do not want the WIFI to drop the connection to the drone and connect to another WIFI while you are flying this or you will lose connection to the drone and may get a fly away drone and possible lose it forever.

CX-10W Mini Drone – 6-Axis Stabilizing Gyro, 0.3MP Camera, Wi-Fi, 15 To 30M Range, 3D Flip, Android & iOS Compatible, FPV

This is a small fun camera drone. This doesnt come with a remote or screen. This is a wifi drone camera. Have 4 small motors and plastic blades. This comes with charging cable and extra plastic blades (which is extremely useful).

How it works:

First charge the drone completely through supplied USB cable.

Then there are QR codes on the outside of box, scan and download for appropriate mobile phone i.e. ios, android etc.

After download then you have to switch on the drone

Main thing is to change your wifi setting from home network to CX-10W…. (this will show up when you search for wifi network in your phone).

Once you selected this CX-10 from your mobile phone wifi setting then your phone will connect to drone

Now open the app and click play

app will connect to drone and you will see the first image of camera drone.

Once you click the right hand side button to top then 4 motor will start working and drone will fly.

The height this small drone can attend is amazing. (please see photos)

I am impressed with the height it attend but also its to remember that its small, light weight drone with small plastic blades. Its little hard for me to handle it as its fast and quick. It falls down from that height for me and blade bent (its good that it comes with additional blades so I change it). Pretty easy to change the blades just pull it out and insert new one.

There are some option in the app. to take photo, video etc I am not sure, why they provide the reverse screen option and it turn to reverse while you are busy flying drone (see photos).

Photos are normal and clear. I clicked one photo from the height when drone is flying.

You will get good fun things with this drone. Need training as it take speed immediately. Good fun drone!
