Interesting looking drone
Look like a good flying quad if you want a smaller version of the bugs 3.
The "acro mode" on it is questionable and not being able to switch between acro and stable with a switch makes it almost useable.
Sweet deal at$65 (deal going on.)
@Dugdog47 I think you can switch, but you have to land first. Is that what you meant?
Yeah it helps if you can switch acro on and off while flying.
Is that like a last chance save option?
I have never tried acro, but it does feel like the next level of pure. But like a old school Porsche.
If you're not used to acro it could be used as a last ditch save option, but I like to switch to angle mode for landings. Landing in acro mode can be problematic.
@roger jones are you still doing the rock thing. I got out for an hour yesterday morning and when my Lipo's had ran out I checked some posts out and remembered what you said a while ago.
It ain't easy brother, not with pebbles anyway.
Yes @mozquito1 still balancing, on and off. Looking forward to warmer weather. Like all things, you get better with practice.
This is one of my mates balances. Another level...
That must take some patience, I'll start with bricks.
I've decided to order this quad to try out and give to my nephew when I get bored of it lol. Since it comes with tx, fpv screen and goggles it's a great deal for $100.
@Dugdog47 looking forward to your review
Well I got the eachine ex2 mini (AKA bugs 3 mini clone lol) it's a good flying quad, would be great for beginners.
The screen that comes with it works good with its fpv camera, although I haven't tried the goggles because they are too small for my head lol.
The camera's vtx signal however is 5.8ghz so it's compatible with my fatsharks so I was able to try some fpv action. I don't really recommend this quad for fpv because you can't tilt the camera so your looking at the ground if you try to get any speed.
The battery has the five pin connectors so you can't use regular lipos, you'll have to buy proprietary batteries made special for it.
All in all a great buy for beginners, if my nephew deems himself worthy to fly this bird he will love it (he's only 9).
Thanks for the review @Dugdog47
