FreeX Low Cost GPS Gimbal Camera Drone Flight Test Review

This very capable quadcopter has actually been available for a couple years now. But only recently has its price dropped dramatically.
– Low price GPS quadcopter that comes with an included stabilized gimbal. Priced similar to the CX-20, 3D X8, and X380.
– Includes GPS position hold, altitude hold, headless mode, return to home/landing, and gimbal tilt control.
– Does not drop from the sky.Slowly descends to a landing when battery power gets low.
– Very fast quadcopter in altitude hold mode. Also extremely fast return to home.
– Gimbal camera mount is sized for GoPros. Other cameras can fit, but may require some slight modifications of the mount to hold them securely.
– It seems to have an electronic fence set at about 200 meters. You see me bump into it at 11:59, from which I couldn’t proceed any further outward. Believe this can be modified to allow further distance, but am unsure how to do such at the moment.
– Requires FAA registration.
