This inexpensive flier is one of the longest flying FPV camera drones in its price range. Find it here https://goo.gl/pw5hPn

– Optical flow sensor automatically maintains a steady hover position without pilot input. Enables you to focus on taking video and photos instead of overly concentrating on flying the drone.

  1. What's the difference between this and the XS809S (which should be the upgraded and, I think, better version of XS809HW)? Can't decide between the two…

  2. I’m about to get rid of my Samsung galaxy,,what do you suggest for a good phone to get that works well with,,mjx, jjrc, visuo and others,,I need to get 5g capability,,I’m not to versed on this as my phone is the oldie but goodie Samsung s3 galaxy….Thankyou sir…jim

  3. Nice Review QC101 Love this Range of CheapToy Quads, I Liked the WiFi 720 version , Now this new one in the staple of Visuo., XS816 Upgrade Cam/Upgraded Batteries/Upgraded App/Upgraded Alt Hold. BUT BUT these guys have lost he plot ?? NOT inc SD Slot Arghhh LOL . Its A SELFIE Drone ??? ( Is it to scrounge more Battery life ) Makes No Sense at all. ?? Shame.

  4. Even though I'm not that keen on the camera … or the fact there's no microSD card slot on the drone, I've got to say that £65.00GBP for the drone, 3 batteries and a bag is good value. Great flight time too. Another good review Q101 🙂

  5. Hey QC…I think you are a very good reviewer. But…there is one thing you do that bugs me. In the interest of constructiveness…when you first launch a drone…the first thing you do is see if it holds position. And that is great. Here is the problem…While the drone maybe holding position very well…you immediately start walking in a circle to get in front of the camera. When you start walking around with the camera focused on the drone, it appears that the drone is NOT holding position. So maybe let it hover for 10 seconds or so, before you walk in a circle to get in front of the camera. Just a thought. Keep up the good work.

  6. Hello u are my hero and I was wondering if u would be able to send me a Drone cause I have always wanted one and it's my b day u probably will say no or ignore me but pls could u
