0 1,654

This quadcopter’s unique modular design comes in several versions with optional modules and devices, such as FPV, stabilized gimbal and camera, and follow me watch. Find the Hornet here https://goo.gl/QQq5sF
It’s also one of the most gentle fliers that I’ve ever seen. But set it to position 3 and watch out. I almost get stung by this zippy hornet at 25:10 into this video πŸ˜‰

– Unique modular design with optional versions/capabilities. This particular quadcopter is the FPV version (camera FPV transmitter module and receiver screen).
– Very gentle flier in GPS modes 1 and 2. Yet in its manual mode it can be very fast and maneuverable.
– Lots of power and plenty of “punch”.
– Good on screen display (OSD) information of this FPV version of the Hornet. Could be better though if satellite status was included.
– Well designed, good looking transmitter, with good ergonomic “feel”.

– Requires FAA registration.
– FPV version can not record video (no SD card slot).
– OSD can momentarily lose link.
– I could not get automatic takeoff to work.
– Charging of smart battery can be confusing. It’s necessary to turn on the battery for it to be charged by its charger.
– GPS satellite status is not displayed with OSD data. Can only determine satellite status by rear tail lights staying steady green. As such, can not evaluate the quality of satellite positioning, such as number of received satellites being used.
– Although beginner’s can fly this in GPS position 1 mode, not recommended for beginner fliers without supervision by more experienced fliers. Although very easy to fly in GPS mode, the pilot should really be capable of flying this in manual mode in case GPS satellite lock is lost.
