Makerfire Micro FPV Racing Drone, Good for kids, disappointing for drone enthusiasts.

Excellent tiny drone package for the cost. Easy set up and fly in just ten minutes. Only get one battery and range is almost certainly additional like 50 m line of sight. Teeny controller w no antenna. Drone is palm size, is pretty strong and flight handle is superior. 5 stars if it arrived with two batteries and a tiny a lot more range in residence or exterior.

It is little, not wind welcoming. It’s brilliant to fly by means of the house and is a wonderful schooling fpv drone.

Like this very little male, purchased to fly indoors primarily, it really is additional nimble than the eachine, create high-quality is incredibly wonderful, all j plugged so you can enhance motors with ease. Acquire much more batteries instantly. The display screen is a tiny smaller with relatively grainy resolution but it’s nonetheless damn exciting and nowhere in close proximity to as lousy as some explained. Remember, this is an all in one for a fantastic price tag.

Comes with almost everything you will need for fpv flight for less than $100. Incredibly resilient, i have ran it into partitions at full speed multiple instances and have not ruined it at all. I would advise you invest in spare batteries for the reason that one just is just not more than enough, you wont want to prevent traveling.Photo quality is great with no noticeable lag.

With this battery i have had the battery on the charger for five hrs and it nevertheless has not billed and when i fly it the battery will only last 1-three min other wise the drone performs as excellent as i hoped besides for the battery.

I appreciate this drone it flys good its long lasting and pleasurable and has altitude hold.

Fantastic little rookie race drone set. The controller could be superior but for the value and receiving almost everything you will need in one shot, can surely be addictive and a great starting point for some to shift on from.

Fun entry level FPV experience.

Excellent – Powerful – Great Value

Super fun!

I love this drone, it’s easy to fly, really easy to pick up and learn quickly. Unfortunately, the small controller is very fragile and keeps breaking, and i haven’t been able to find a replacement. The drone itself is a pretty durable little beast, it can go fairly fast and even with high speed and altitude crashes. It has barely sustained a small back breakage, but i have been able to find replacement canopies wich is nice. Wish i knew of a replacement controller or if i can even bind one :(.

I can’t believe they packed all this technology into a flying machine that weighs less than an ounce and costs less than $100 including the goggles, the transmitter, and batteries and chargers for all the gear. I found the quadcopter very easy to fly by looking into the (included) goggles rather than looking directly at the quadcopter.

I am traveling fpv and getting so significantly pleasurable with my young ones. Professionals:- incredibly simple to management and fly. five calendar year old has a blast traveling it, without the googles. – safe and sound and benign when traveling indoors. Will not injury something nor brake alone. – vehicle acquire off and car ability off are fantastic attributes. – extremely, really steady flyer indoors. Outside, you need to have no wind at all to maneuver all-around.

So significantly exciting and rather the package deal bundle. Girlfriend and i choose turns flying it all-around the home.

Great fun beginner fpv drone. Alot of fun to fly at a park or back yard. It is very light weight so any wind will push it. You can tell when the battery is about to die, the video feed starts to break up. The goggles are easy to set up with a one button scan feature that works well. I have crashed this thing into the wall, a ceiling fan, the dog, more trees than i can count. It still works just as well as the day i got it.

All four escs arrived jointly on time, and they all 4 did their occupation correctly. The only reason i’m rating at four stars is due to the fact one of the pre-soldered joints popped off after a incredibly light crash, which shouldn’t materialize. Ever because fixing that, they have all worked fine and have been a excellent benefit to me.

Flew nicely but the propellers are weak, also shakey at occasions even at lower winds.

Had a small camera issue at first, but manufacturer replaced it without issue. Works great out of the box and is easy to upgrade if you choose to. Will definitely buy from this manufacturer again.

Great little esc’s im happy with there performance.

Sorry it is really having me awhile i get ill a whole lot and i conclude up in the clinic and it is tough for me to generate back occasionally and reaction but they operate great adore them rather fast reaction instances incredibly brief excellent item want to get much more for spares.

Battery only lasts a handful of minutes.

Acquired two as items for good friends. Making an attempt to get them into fpv traveling/tinywhoop scene. Good starter set to discover out if you are heading to like the hobby or not without having putting also much of a dent in your wallet.

Tremendous quick shipping and certainly blew my anticipations. My young ones couldn’t be happier.

This is a very fast and powerful ‘tiny whoop’ class (65mm) quad. It performs well especially outside, it holds up to slight wind and is very responsive. With the speed and response sensitivity, i put in the class of a racer rather than a toy. ( i did put 2 blade props on it). I am very pleased, will likely buy it again.

Incredibly enjoyment small whoop, it is pretty very good for a man or woman discovering to fly tiny whoops, really secure.

This is my to start with brushless 2s micro drone, right after setting up out in the hobby a several months ago flying the brushed 1s tiny whoop-design and style drones (specifically the e010 eachines). Considering that i fly primarily indoors at the second, the armor 67’s similar sizing is a position in its favor for me (67mm wheelbase, when compared to the 65mm for the e010’s), and the 2s battery and brushless motors deliver noticeably far more electricity than my prior drones. Flight time with 400 or 450mah 2s batteries is about 4-5 minutes, but i do not fly as well aggressively indoors. What i truly like is the osd camera, which includes battery voltage and pid values. The battery voltage show is way pleasant because you really don’t have to depend strictly on timers to prevent draining your battery far too much, and the pid screen allows you use betaflight’s adjustments configurations (furthermore a suitable controller) to modify pids on-the-fly with out needing to join it back to the computer every time, to adjust the values. It has telemetry, way too, but won’t feel to contain battery voltage as element of the described metrics, oddly sufficient, so that boundaries its usefulness to me i just count mainly on the osd. The carbon fiber body is really pleasant, but it would not look like you can take away the propeller guards with out shedding the camera mount as well. I suppose you can take out the propeller guards and use double facet tape to mount the camera appropriate on the receiver, but that appears to be iffy. Also, the way it is intended, in get to get the usb cable plugged into it, you have to take out the rear support strut. At least for me, none of my micro usb cables have the clearance to healthy concerning the strut and the plug.

I bought this drone because i saw someone made a video with an obstacle course in the house. I followed the instructions and in the second attempt got it going through out the house and then landed it without hassle. The video reception is very clear and amazing. Would have liked the run time to be a bit longer considering it takes about 30 minutes to charge.

 this is definitely a lot of kit for the value. The product includes: a brushed quadcopter, transmitter, fpv box style goggles, extra props, stickers, a mini philips screwdriver, a 1s lipo and charger for the goggles and battery. Quadcopter: it’s a whoop sized brushed quadcopter with camera and vtx and led indicators. Transmitter: very simple, ergonomic and intuitive. Goggles: box-style goggles, impressive clarity (almost better than my fatshark hd3’s), simple channel search and manual adjustment featurespackaging: excellent, well protect packaging. Each item comes encased within the foam packaging inside the box. Quality: seems to be pretty sturdy and reliable. Battery life: expect about 2 minutes of hard flying and about 4 minutes of relaxed flyingvideo range: i’m able to fly throughout my entire apartment and out onto my patio (stronger signal than tx)transmitter range: seems to be pretty decent for around the house flyingthings worth noting: read the instructions.To arm, you must press the second button from the bottom of the lhs gimbal, then throttle up-down, then press the same button mentioned before to begin a hover.

The fpv range was really bad for me and would be very fuzzy with lines cutting through the video feed. Flickered in and out leaving you mid-air not knowing where you are. Battery doesn’t last more than 2 minutes ever. Other than that good altitude drone, just not what i was hoping for in fpv.

I ordered this drone, the red pawz crimson drone e011, and the eachines r013 pink pepper. Of the 3, this drone performs the very best by significantly. The top secret is the hold altitude attribute that can make it possible for a newbie or kid to fly. We also personal 2 professional whoops snapper 6 & seven, and this drone is by significantly the most enjoyable for the cash. It will not be in a position to fly as quickly as the professional whoop, but the enhanced control and pre-programmed acrobatics make me come to feel like a pro correct out of the box. The one star critique stating the drone is not flyable could not be farther from the truth of the matter. Perhaps they experienced a distinct item as there are many ‘look alikes’ – it is the computer software that makes them diverse.

I put on the goggles and started flying around the room. It is surprisingly easy to fly in fpv. I felt a momentary out of body experience when i realized i was fly up behind myself wearing goggles. The only slight downside is that with the extra load of the camera and transmitter, the battery only lasts a few minutes.

 pros- completely ready to fly minus batteries for transmitter- three lipos for plane- hovercraft physique- air, land, and h2o capablecons- hovercraft will not float on cushion of air- transmitter a little bit compact for mei have a great deal of quadcopters and r/c airplanes but not an r/c hovercraft prior to this obtain. This is what intrigued me on this plane. Everything was packaged neatly and securely in the box. I was astonished to uncover 3 lipos for the aircraft, was only expecting 1 or two. Remember to browse the handbook on how to demand the lipo, completely transform the aircraft into the hovercraft, and ow to fly and travel. Traveling the quadcopter is like traveling any other quadcopter. There are numerous speeds and a flip button. So it flew remarkably effectively and no complaints from me on flight. To flip to hovercraft, thrust two tabs in that retains the rear motors horizontal and then push up from the bottom of the rear motors right up until they are vertical pointing ahead. Following powering on the quadcopter, put it in the suitable area of the plastic boat shell.

This is a neat lil quad to get young children included in fpv but its body is weak. When it’s flying, it truly is a ton of exciting and quick to fly. Sadly the controller is way as well small for adult palms as it was challenging to hold these types of a modest controller. If they applied a controller the very same sizing as the hubsan x4 it would be way much better. The goggles are awkward and i experienced a tough time observing clearly (i have a set extra fat shark recon v2 that are crystal crystal clear in contrast to these). The body is 7 days and will crack at some issue, so it would advantage from making use of a very similar body as the beta65s frame or anything that is additional long lasting, as you are going to want a spare frame at some level and i am not absolutely sure what would work, possibly they can offer replacement elements?. Other than that, it was a blast to fly, but you can discover it in other places for about $15 fewer than whats outlined on amazon, you have to store amazon as it seems their selling prices are turning out to be less aggressive these days.

Overall great for beginners, but antenna is kinda fragile. Nephew accidentally broke the antenna in 3 days (from landing/crashing) and now doesn’t transmit video to the goggles. I deducted one star for the antenna. For being a toy and the price, it should have the antenna more durable.

  1. I was really excited to order this drone. However, the controller showed up broken (control sticks snapped off & gives consistent buzzing sound) and the drone would not fly.

  2. This product is tiny and very cheap looking. Not worth the money i spent at all. This is probably a $10 gift rather than the $40 i spent on it. I believe this product is designed to be sold on amazon and appear to be qaulity in the photographs and rip people off. I am literally offended at the cheap quality. I just got the product at the last minute and gave it to my nephews so i can not return it as it was a gift.

    Honestly this drone is a lot of fun when it works. The first order we received had damages to the remote and was missing the headset straps. Then we received a replacement order that will not fly for longer than 3min. I will be returning both and going with another company.

    I ordered my first makerfire shark, the battery would cut off in 30 seconds of flight. I got a 2nd one from you, looked like it was used, as parts were not in the sacks etc. It would not take off the ground. One or two of the motors wouldn’t start up every time. Tried a half a dozen times, and said this isn’t going to work. I’m going to shop around amazon tonight and buy a little better quality quad. Returning 2nd shark quad dec 3 by ups.

    Doesn’t work for nothing when it comes to my goggles. Bkught it months ago and was going back and forth with emails to the company to help resolve the problem and nothing ever came of it. I tried flying the drone for the first couple weeks but since i can’t fly it with the goggles, i put the drone back in the box and on the shelf.
