Goolsky FQ17W Mini RC Quadcopter Foldable Drone : Rotors tangle, difficult to control

It’s practical and compact but thats were it stops. U have to install a clunky app on your phone and set up a hotspot to the drone to get it to work. The controls are extremely sensitive making the manueving the think look drunk. It will drift in various directions and slak into walls. Mayney i need more experience with it.

I flew the drone about 3 times. Accedentaly crashed it once and was no longer functioning. One of the propellers wasn’t spinning. It is a good drone, it just can’t take hits. The camera is ok it is not the best however.

Purchased the drone as something to help me practice flying on before i take out my much larger drone. The quadcopter itself is nice, functions as expected and is all around fun to play with. However one of the added bonuses to this purchase was the camera, while i realize it won’t be the pest quality of picture i still enjoy to fpv fly. Sadly, that lasted long enough for it to stop, the wi-fi connection is fine and the fly from phone option is still available however it no longer links with the video feed. My concern is that took only 2 flights to stop working, how long will this little guy actually hold up?otherwise i enjoy this little quadcopter, it’s helped me become comfortable with flying my larger drone and its much more fun to zip about with, i just really wish the camera had held up.

 five out of five,this is becoming my favorite mini-drone. I have about 6 so trust me this one is worth it. Here is whyaesthetics (5) form and design are quite nice, nothing flashy but who cares its a tiny folding drone. But it has a really nice finish and the red on black looks great. The matte finish is really eye catching to me and feels nice to the touch. I also like how it does not look like a drone when folded. Function (5) super functional and responsive with a well thought out design. Down to the free screwdriver to disassemble for maintenance is a nice plus. My other small drones snap together which is a pain because you have to be firm enough to install the props but gentle enough to not break them. Ease of use (5) overall the app, the controller, and the drone are really easy to use.

Broke the initial time we made use of it.

The quadcopter is very easy to pilot even using the ipad.

Wifi and phone use kills the battery so swift.

Appreciate the dimension and portability but handles like a brick which i could alter the pidsnot truly a novices quad or appropriate for indoor or outside.

Pros: it’s small and compact, very light, pretty easy to handle if your experienced, works well out doors if no wind is present, flies pretty high in low wind conditions. Cons: i was very excited about this drone, upon opening the box, i noticed one of the propellers over extends, there’s a loose black wire, and the quadcopter fans spin but didn’t take off. After some finagling i got it to work. Over all: a fun quadcoper to fly, would recommend for experienced users. Not a bad deal for the price.

Loved the quick shipping and price but it took off into a lake when i was experimenting with the app and it just took off in the water and don’t know what i touched for it to do that.

This was a great first drone. Very fun but we couldn’t get the controller to work. The phone app worked fine though.

Rotors get tangled effortlessly on grass, carpet, etcetera. My cs pupil had some hassle controlling and he’s a remote control genius.

This drone is fantastic it packed in a significant excellent white box. And i just invested couple of minutes to set. And the instruction is effortless to fully grasp. If you browse it plainly you will find even however so little it is, but has so several capabilities, like 360 degree ,so on. What a magic thingi’m very content with this obtain and hunting forward to several additional flights. By the way, what i will have to to say is ,you company’s provider is pretty specialist.

A wonderful mini-quad for the cash.

Grandson instantly begun studying the directions and took it to flight.

Tough to control, altitude keep does not perform that nicely ( keeps getting rid of altitude ).

The battery only lasts about 10 minutes but nonetheless, the performance for the cost. The props genuinely take a beating too and you get extras. Remarkably recommend this for novices and pros.

My brother in law loved his christmas gift.

  1. The drone was good when i took it out and flew it, the altitude hold worked well and so did all the other features, but when i went to charge it, the charger was defective. Now i have to return it and buy it from a different seller. Here’s one just in case someone else wants to buy it: youcute yc0092t wifi fpv pocket foldable drone with camera altitude hold mode rtf (black with transmitter).

    It’s only 3”x3”x1” and fits into the tiniest pouches. Battery life needs improvement but what can you expect from something this small. The good thing is the extra batteries you can buy come in a 5-pack and don’t cost much.

    This drone is great it packed in a high quality white box. And i just spent few minutes to set. And the instruction is easy to understand. If you read it clearly you will find even though so small it is, but has so many functions, like 360 degree ,so on. What a magic thingi’m extremely happy with this purchase and looking forward to many more flights. By the way, what i must to say is ,you company’s service is very professional.

  10. Was ok for the few minutes until it ran out of power. Would love to charge it up and try again but battery won’t come out of the input socket. No release button, nothing in directions. Tried everything, including pliers,screwdriver, pins, but simply will not come out. Maybe i got a dud, but have to call it as i see it. Definitely can not recommend. Should have spent a little more on something else of better quality.

    Instructions are terrible i mean truly it reads like a chineese scam email. If you can see the tiny print good luck understanding the man-glish (mandarine and english). Still haven’t figured out how to get it to sync with the supplied controller so i can fly it. Horrible, i’m considering beating it with a hammer and posting the vid.

    Unclear operation instructions. Drone doesn’t work 1/2 the time. The video feature doesn’t work for more than a few seconds. Video connects to your phone via wifi, the drone broadcasts such a weak signal that it drops every 2-3 seconds.

      1. 1.0 out of 5 stars I've had problems with two low price copters ,perhaps I should buy better equip. it did look nice I'm let down that it was short says:
        The equipment look goog but was missing power cord i didn’t like it did not have blade protectors, which would have been a problem since the propellers had no protection.

    This product would be cool, if it could fly. It was shipped and one of the quad motors does not work so it just spins on the ground and will not fly. Unfortunately, i missed the return window and it has been sitting in my car for a month. I guess i just throw it away and eat the $40. The app for the phone is pretty awesome, my daughter was really disappointed.
