ZLRC SG901 Yue 4K Folding Camera Drone Flight Test Review

This folding beginner's camera drone can fly well over 16 minutes on a battery charge. Find it here and use coupon 3MSMNVZK (NO BAG INCLUDED WITH ONE BATTERY VERSION) , or get 3 battery version with bag included here (use coupon 3O6RRACQ)

Pros
– Folding drone for portability.
– Lightweight at 214 grams with battery. May not require registration in some countries.
– I was in error stating that this drone records 2K video. It actually records and saves 1080p video and 4K (4096 x 3072 pixel) photos. Camera lens can be manually pointed up ro down before flight.
– Optical flow sensor automatically hovers the drone without pilot input.
– Altitude hold, headless mode, and one key return.
– 3.7V 2200mah battery provides over 16 minutes flight time.
– FPV video can be viewed, and video recorded directly to your phone using common 2.4Ghz WiFi. 5G WiFi is not required by this drone.
– HFUN app ( , ) provides ability to view and record video. Additionally provides advanced features of follow me, waypoints, and gesture control of camera.

Cons
– Brushed motors will wear out eventually.
– No SD card recording capability. Instead video and photo files are recorded directly to your phone via WiFi, with usual WiFi limitations of lag, and dropped or frozen frames.
– HFUN app was very buggy with this drone. App crashed on me several times when video recording was activated.
– Could not get follow me feature to work properly with this drone.

  1. Hi again congratulations for the winner. I want to ask you if I win with you in my country the drone its forbidden. What I can do?
    Good video my friend

    1. The winner does not get a drone. The winner only gets a personal greeting/congratulations (shoutout) at the beginning of the video.

  2. I’m trying to find a 4K camera drone but not spend a sale much as a Mavic or phantom do you have any suggestions? Do you recommend the hubsan zino?

  3. It drives me crazy when these cheap manufacturers class there poor quality cameras and bidet o quality as 2k or 4k when they are barely 1080p, they should be ashamed as newbies full for it and buy the rubbish drones thinking they are camera birds..

  4. Great video Quadcopter101. Hope you can do a review of the SG907 soon. I’m mainly interested if it has an on-board SD card slot, info I can’t get anywhere else I guess due to it being so new

    1. The SG907 appears to be this SG901 with a GPS added. As such, I would not expect it to have a SD card slot, and camera performance should be similar to this drone.

  5. I’m happy to see you haven’t changed since I first found your channel, you got me into drones and I have purchased a few that I’ve seen showing up on the channel.

    Keep it up!

  6. nice video, I seen them a lot on different web sites for sell cheap. for a newbie would be just fine. Thank you 101 always a nice one to see you.

  7. Chinese are notorious for basically lying about the technical specifications. Again, save your money for a Spark. The DJI products have never once failed on me. Absolutely spot on with spec’s and it’s reliability. That’s worth a lot to me.
