C-Fly Dream Long Range FPV Flight Test Review

0 347



This brushless GPS drone includes a controller with built-in WiFi amplifier enabling long range digital FPV flight. Find it here https://goo.gl/eHtyfy and here’s the Dream Part 1 review https://youtu.be/TeDyg6XGLUo

Pros
– Long range (advertised at 800 meters) 5G WiFi FPV via the built-in WiFi relay of its controller, and its C-Fly app available on Play here https://goo.gl/DkhQ4z and iTunes here https://goo.gl/ao9A9h
– Small and lightweight (251 grams with battery), it’s very portable. As C-Fly advertises, “Take your Dream to travel around the world”.
– 1080p camera with two axis stabilized gimbal.
– Controller has built-in WiFi relay to provide long range digital FPV reception.
– GPS/GLONASS satellite system to provide accurate positioning.
– Optical flow system provides stable hover indoors.
– Advanced flight modes of circle, follow me, and waypoints.

Cons
– Uses 802.11ac 5G WiFi. Not all phones are capable of using this WiFi. First verify that your phone is indeed 802.11ac capable before purchasing.
– 1080p camera could be better. Frame rate is only 24fps. White balance is also a bit off in sunny environment.
– Low voltage auto return did not seem to perform as advertised. I was flying below 10% remaining battery power and manually landed to protect the battery.
– Android version of C-Fly app still needs some fine tuning. App would freeze when I would attempt to stop video recording.
