Holy Stone F181C RC Quadcopter Drone : A Great First Drone

This is prepared with about 20 flights having been flown. I propose downloading the instruction guide from the holy stone internet site, it is marginally distinctive from the one included in the box and is improved at outlining some features. I started out out discouraged that i could not get the drone to hyperlink with the distant. The directions say to hold the throttle adhere down, turn on the remote, and immediately transfer the throttle up and down. Basically flip on the remote, then move the throttle up then down. The gyro does a very good position retaining the drone amount. But the trim changes don’t operate pretty perfectly, if at all.

This is (was) my initial drone. I did not want to drop $a thousand on a dji until eventually i knew how to fly. This minor man is a fantastic drone. I will maintain this limited: i did not exam the camera or even use it. I just wished to get a drone i could fly indoors and practice. The 1st matter i can say is go through the guide. There are matters on the controller that are not obvious as far as procedure (like trimming the ahead/back again/left/proper). That claimed, this does fly very well for a $a hundred drone. Nevertheless one of the motors burned out after my 2nd working day of use. Also i would highly recommend you use the prop guards. My houseplants would also quite a great deal concur. Here is a listing of execs and downsides:pros:1 – flies perfectly and is very durable (i crashed it about 20 periods)2 – terrific lights for night time flying3 – seems cool4 – will come with 2 batteries (about 5 min. Of flight each individual one)drawbacks:1 – motor burned out on working day 22 – you have to screw in the prop guards which isnt noticeable in the instruction manual3 – batteries are sort of a suffering to swap out4 – the gentle on the usb battery charger dont switch environmentally friendly when the battery is chargedso overall i consider this is a $49 drone, not a $100 drone. I am not a admirer of acquiring to call assistance and wait around for motors together with delivery and all that inconvenience.

The f-181c is a mid-dimensions entry degree quadcopter with a greatest rotor span of 14. 5 inches, placing it roughly the measurement of the udi 818. And like the tried & correct 818, this quad flyer from holy stone is an great entry level drone for those people just finding started. It also shares a structure flaw with the well-liked 818, uncovered motor housings that are at chance of sticks or other international objects speaking to the travel gears and triggering a malfunction. Udi acknowledges this shortcoming, and contains spare gear bushings with their drone. A greater option would be to just enclose the vulnerable motor housings like they did on the fpv model x-4000. Holy stone nearly received it appropriate with the f-181, besides as the hooked up shots demonstrate, they go away the housing open up at the bottom, ideal wherever important gears are functioning. Holy stone states they use responses from us to make improvements to their products so it will be pretty fascinating to see if the f-181 receives enclosed motor housings in the potential. On my next outside flight the tiny gear slipped down, loosing make contact with with the substantial gear on the ideal entrance motor. I pushed it again into spot and saved flying.

I am updating this critique simply because holy stone consumer company is excellent. This drones battery pack caught fireplace in my home. It happened and i want to be genuine so others can make an knowledgeable invest in. On the other hand they have really tried using to make matters suitable and they have questioned for detailed facts so they can investigate what went completely wrong. Every solution has a several duds.

Revised critique: after 1st time out acquiring some video, copter worked fine, downloaded movies and every single one was apparently corrupted. Of course there had been some challenging landings but they have been all in tall grass. Shouldnt have destroyed camera if thats why they arent playable. Quadcopter makers despatched a complete replacement copter. It is effective great and video clip is also doing work on this device. Great buyer provider, rapid and painless. Not usually that you can uncover a business that stands driving their item aswell as holy stone.

Holy stone f181c rc quadcopter drone with hd camera rtf 4 channel two. 4ghz 6-gyro with altitude hold function,headless mode and one key return home, color blackthis is a great bang-for-your buck drone which is ideal suited for rookies on a price range who want more fun than what a mini drone presents. You do have the flexibility of flying this drone indoors or outside. For starter drones, i assume three points are most important to assessment before shopping for: battery existence, crashability, and relieve of handle. Here is a rundown of how the f181c performs in each class, additionally some of its downsides. Battery everyday living:i received 8-10 minutes of flight time for each battery demand cycle. I envision you can get a lot more if just hovering, but what entertaining is that?. I was a very little concerned right before shopping for the drone that battery lifestyle would appear in less than the said variety, but was content to master that genuine efficiency matches up properly with the stated variety. I live in colorado and even tested it after a snowstorm in 20 diploma fahrenheit temperature. I held the battery heat in my pocket even though outside and loaded it into the drone when prepared to fly, which might have served to maintain it traveling as standard.

  1. Love it and kids have a blast flying or running away from it when i fly it. My dog chases it too which adds to the fun. The tiny gears are a little hard to replace and fix. Battery last about ten minutes.

    Initial battery issues made me struggle with this drone. However, the professional support team from holy stone did respond to the issue in a timely manner. They provided an extra battery pack, and demonstrated ongoing support beyond the “return item window” which evidences commitment to customer satisfaction and and product quality trust. The item in itself is a lightweight drone really worth considering for basic drone flying experiences.

    Seemed like a neat drone until it got a mind of its own and flew away. Wouldn’t come back with one key return. Son was pretty disappointed, he had saved up money to buy a nice drone.

    This is my second holy stone drone. Having tons of fun and enjoying the photo/video capabilities, it’s funny to load the sd card to find what i’ve ended up with. Sure wish the flight time was longer tho.

    Excellent drone with many features and easy to fly, great drone at an excellent price.
    1. My kids are loving the drone. Easy enough for 11 year old. And most of all i love the service. Our drone came with a non working remote. I called the number on the box and they sent a replacement right away. They were very professional.

    I won it as a door prize and it’s great. Flies for about 10 minutes per battery charge. Keeps its altitude perfectly and is very responsive.
