This large GPS drone includes a 1080p HDD camera with remote controlled tilting gimbal. Coming soon to all vendors.

Pros
– GPS/GLONASS automatically maintains hover position, and automatically returns and lands the drone on command, loss of transmitter signal, and low battery.
– Compass calibration is very quick and easy to do.
– 1080p HD camera with remote tilting mount. Video is recorded directly to a microSD card to avoid WiFi lag and frame dropping.

– 2S 2600mah battery provides about 8 minutes of flight time.

Cons

– Uses 802.11ac 5G WiFi. Not everyone owns a phone with this capability. Before purchasing, first verify that your phone is indeed 802.11ac WiFi capable.
– Brushed motors. They are not easily replaced requiring the removal of 20 screws to access.
– Proprietary battery.

  1. That looks like a fine “little” drone! 🙂
    The Global Drone X183 X6 Follower is also a fine mid-sized drone, but the short flight battery life pisses me off (all of my flights have had sub-six minute flight times — usually closer to five minutes) though I must say that it does indeed fly well for those brief flights. 🙂

  2. To be honest, it’s not that much different to the Syma’s , S70W or the Byangtoys GPS offerings, all with brushed motors. Why not opt for the JJRC X5 ( mjx clone) or any of the MJX gps models around the same price point and the luxury of brushless, certainly an up grade from these toy grade quads. Better still , what about the new Xiaomo Fimi A3 , now that looks a bargain.

  3. I think you hit most of the highlights and lowlights of this one, especially in your Pros/Cons. Brushed motors in this day & age is the equivalent of using ‘stone knives & bear skins’. The camera isn’t too bad, but jello ruins the video. The FPV freezes up from time to time. For $100, which is approx. the selling price on this model .. which doesn’t seem to be released yet, I think the Bugs 2 is the better buy & better quad, with better video. (the 2C is cheaper, but the 2W seems to have a better camera). With all the better competition out there, I don’t see this as being a big seller for Attop. I’m glad the “4 wheel gang” are keeping to themselves and giving you some space to fly. Cheers.

  4. I’m not keen on the compass calibration. It’s not nearly as much fun as watching you do the traditional dance. 😀
    Seriously though it has some very good points and a few bad ones but overall it’s not too bad.
