Visuo XS809W Folding FPV 720p HD Camera Drone Flight Test Review

This cheap portable folding FPV drone records relatively good 720p HD video. Throw it in your backpack and take it hiking. Find the 720p HD version WITH ALTITUDE HOLD here $10 off with coupon HJUNVS *Spare batteries here* NOTE THAT CURRENT VERSION NOW BEING SHIPPED CONTAINS ALTITUDE HOLD FEATURE.
and here is a cheaper low resolution 0.3MP version (does not have 720p HD camera), $8 off with coupon LQPMPV

– The quadcopter’s arms are foldable to make it very portable, such as in a backpack (similar to DJI Mavic Pro).
– Very maneuverable and sporty for a camera quadcopter. (Note, the current version being shipped now contains altitude hold)
– Can be controlled and flown via its controller or your smartphone/tablet. Controller buttons are all well labeled.
– Records relatively good quality 720p 20fps HD FPV video directly to a microSD memory card inserted into the quadcopter. Will also record video to your phone via WiFi, however the WiFi transmitted video is of lower VGA resolution.
– Camera lens can be swiveled up (to view sky and horizon), or down (to eliminate props from camera view)
– XSW UFO app is available on Google Play here and itunes here
– Good control and FPV range of about 80 meters.
– Headless mode and one key return.
– Does not require FAA registration (and as of 5/19/2017, no quadcopter does anymore 🙂

– Proprietary battery.
– Version now being shipped contains altitude hold. As such, flight capability may be different than shown in this video, with less throttle control due to the height hold feature.

  1. Hello, I bought this drone and I can't manage to connect the camera on the app.
    I find the wifi, conect to the phone. But on the app it doesn't show the camera view. Could you please help me with that? Is there something that I can do?

  2. Just got this in the mail today can't wait to learn how to fly with this one because I have a more expensive drone on the way which I'm waiting to fly until I know how to fly a drone completely manual. Awesome video thank you for the encouragement to purchase this quadcopter.

  3. You seem to handle that drone like a pro. I just ordered this as my first ever drone but I'm wondering if it might be a little too steep of a learning curve for a first-time flyer (ie. to not write it off on my first flight lol). A few guides I read suggested starting out with a cheaper, and much more noob-friendly RTF (not that it gets much cheaper than the £34 I snapped it up for in a "flash sale") but I guess we'll see…

  4. Mine Came In 2Day…Let You All Know What I Think & How It Fly's On My Channel & As Always thank You Quad 101…4 Your TIPS…See Yaw, Kenny Bohey

  5. Hello, I just got this drone, how are you suppose to charge it? I thought this drone has Li-po battery, but NO charger was included and it looks that it does not have overcharge protection system built into the battery which is really dangerous for a li-po. However, after some research, I found some sources say that the battery is lithium-ion, but the product advertise it as Li-Po. I am really confused with this information. Would you mind answering my question? Thanks.
