Flying 3D X6 Plus GPS FPV Drone Range Return and Flight Time Testing
Flight testing of this quadcopter’s capabilities. Find it here http://shrsl.com/?~aodk This long range update to the Flying 3D X6 includes a 5.8 Ghz FPV system, a 720p camera, and a GPS system with emergency return to landing. This would be an intermediate fliers introductory FPV flying drone, with greatly extended range over cheaper toy grade quadcopters. Also the GPS return to landing ability would come in handy if the flier loses sight or orientation of this little drone while flying at extreme range.

– GPS with return to landing (selectable or emergency low-voltage or lost contact).
– Brushless motors.
– Good range (800m with flight control software update)
– 720p HD camera.
– Good FPV video range.
– Fast little quadcopter.
– Short flight time (About 4 to 5 minutes if flown fast or aggressively. Flight time can be increased if flown gently).
– Camera can not not be controlled remotely. It requires manual starting and stopping by pushing a recessed button on the camera. Camera does not have still photo capability.
– Somewhat pricey, but hopefully its price will drop with time.
