Feilun FX176C2 (720p Version) Cheap GPS Follow Me Drone Flight Test Review

0 1,260



This drone is one of the lowest cost GPS quadcopters with true return to home capability. Also comes with follow me mode and 720p HD WiFi FPV. . Find it here and use $10 coupon: HTYUSA10 https://goo.gl/wrb4rF . Be careful as some other vendors are selling the FX176C1 version with a low resolution camera. And find the WiFi repeater that I used here https://goo.gl/5pTtUH

Pros
– One of the cheapest GPS equipped quadcopters currently available. A direct competitor to the Hubsan H502E and H507A.
– Includes 720p HD camera with WiFi FPV capability. WiFi FPV range without using the controller is good out to about 80 meters.
– Has GPS position hold, GPS return to home, headless mode, altitude hold, and follow me capabilities.
– Can be controlled via its provided controller or via your phone using the “FL Drone 2” app available on Google Play here https://goo.gl/MNxkSw or iTunes here https://goo.gl/qRwDN5 The app is actually good, with plenty of displayed telemetry information.

Cons
– There’s always room for Jello πŸ˜‰ But propeller balancing may help reduce it.
– The provided 2S 700mah battery gives relatively short flight time. However other generic 2S batteries will fit in the battery bay, and provide longer flight time. You’ll need 2S battery with red JST connector. Maximum battery to fit in the bay are 67mm length, 35mm width, 16mm thickness.
– Quadcopter also has orbit mode and waypoint mode capability via the app. However to safely use these features, it is important to import Google Maps to set waypoints to orbit or fly to. Unfortunately with the current version of the app, I was not able to view Google Maps information on the screen.
– It’s important to point the quadcopter toward your position before activating follow me, as it will not automatically point the camera in your direction. Any use of the virtual joysticks will also cancel follow me mode. So if you reposition the aircraft or turn it toward you, you will need to restart follow me.
