C-Fly Dream Portable Brushless Travel Drone with Gimbal Flight Test Review

This brushless GPS camera drone is designed for maximum portability and is reasonably priced for its included features. Find it here

Pros
– 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.
– Long range 5G WiFi FPV via the built-in WiFi relay of its controller, and its C-Fly app available on Play here and iTunes here

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.
– C-Fly app still needs some fine tuning. App would freeze when I would attempt to stop video recording.

    1. Congratulations. You were the first to say First. You win a shoutout in a future QC101 video. Again, congratulations!

    2. I have a question…How about we start a WhatsApp group “Quadcopter101”?So we can ask doubts about mini drones and other drones!!!You can start a group and write in the description like this:-

      “To join our WhatsApp group email us on…..”

      I am just asking this because so many can clear their doubts 🙂

    3. Can you provide my channel link in the description and tell them to subscribe my channel?Please….i need more subscribers!!!

      I Hope you understand..thank you 🙂

  1. Obviously Chinese companies have no problem ripping each other off. They can copy the form factor, but are struggling to duplicate DJI’s superior software. Nice vid. Thanks.

  2. Quite a bit jello there, price diff. is not that much either and spark price seems to be dropping a bit. Yuneec breeze 4k was selling for $150 in walmart with its EIS looks like a better option

    1. I just flew it today with FPV past 600 meters. I don’t think that the Breeze can go anywhere near that distance.

  3. In your next test flight, try using the video button on the transmitter to start/stop your video… worked for me! LoL!!!

    1. I flew it again today, and did just that. It worked for a while. But as the flight progressed it started to freeze up again when trying to stop the video.

    2. What a pitty. I got my DREAM review model from the factory, I also previously did a store sponsored review of the C-Fly Obtain and am trying my best to like the C-Fly products, but… “they make it hard for a brother!” LoL!!! As part of our job as reviewers, I wrote back to C-Fly, sent them a comprehensive assessment of their products (Obtain & Dream) and what my thoughts are, so, …we’ll see how that goes. At the very least, I hope we’ll see a firmware update for the DREAM, I like that little bird but it needs camera & gimbal tweaking! Good review by the way, thanks for sharing. -djsoulforce!

    3. Uwe K – Yes, it worked for me in my review. I turned on the remote controller first, then connected my phone to the remote’s wifi hotspot – then turn on quad. (you must have an SD card in the quad) I started my video record by long pressing the video button on the transmitter, video was saved on SD card! Video on my channel, happy flying!!!

    4. SOUL FORCE QUADS good job DJ. It is a shame that C-FLY is releasing these drones with such bad gimbals. Hopefully they can fix some of that through firmware updates.

  4. It seems like C-Fly has done better with their Wifi FPV system than must toy quad makers. You got decent range with no break-up. But with the real DJI Spark now going for $399 at Best Buy with controller, I’m not sure by the Dream at $249 is a good deal. It might have been when the Spark was $699. They arrived late to the party with the Dream. Good review.

  5. Fantastic beat ! I would like to apprentice whilst you amend your web site, how could i subscribe for a weblog site?

    The account aided me a appropriate deal. I were a little bit familiar of this your broadcast offered vivid clear idea
