Sunlytech (Sandy Air) Alpha Cam GPS 4K Selfie FPV Camera Drone Flight Test Review

0 520

This highly portable little selfie FPV quadcopter includes GPS, 4K camera, and electronic image stabilization that works relatively well. Find it here

– Comes with nice carrying case and two batteries.
– Includes GPS/GLONASS for outside stabilized flight, and optical/IR sensors for indoor stabilized flight. Also includes altitude hold for vertical stability.
– Easily transportable. Case can easily fit in a backpack or even a small bag or large purse.
– 4K / 13MP camera,
– Built in 16GB media storage. Can download video via either USB or by WiFi directly to your phone or tablet for easy uploading to social media.
– Electronic image stabilization (@1080p resolution only).
– Long potential flight time per battery of up to 20 minutes.
– In flight FPV video and quadcopter control is conducted via SUNLYFLY 2.4G/5G WiFi app, available on Play here and iTunes here

– Overheats with extended flight. Flying in 80 degree F air temperature, my Alpha would give an overheat alert after approximately 6 to 8 minutes flight time. This requires landing, removing the battery, and letting the quadcopter cool down (about 15 minutes) before flying the remaining voltage of the battery.
– A lot of the promised features of this quadcopter have not yet been incoroporated into its app software. These missing features include Auto Follow, 360 Circle Mode, Asymptotic Mode, Panorama Mode, Voice Control, and Facial Recognition Selfie.
