Original XK Detect X380-C 2, Five Stars

Fantastic quadcopter, however, the stated ‘radar positioning and return home. This quad employs gps positioning and does not make use of radar, sonar or barometric measurements to keep situation. It will return to its launch place upon command, or if radio conversation from the transmitter is shed. Moreover, there are internet web-sites which offer you totally free program that will make it possible for you to improve matters like the return property altitude, the length from residence you might fly and the pace at which it climbs, descends and travels. Again, this is an great quadcopter.

This thing is all its suppose to be. I have never flown any kind of quadcopter before but with the auto take off and auto landing features i had no problem. The gps works great for auto return and auto landing. If it gets a little crazy you just let off on all controls and it will stop and just hover. I have recently added a pfv system to it. I you can drive a rc car you can fly this just use common sense like don’t fly it in high winds or try to fly to close to things until your very confident in your skills.

The xk detect x380 is a very durable and dependable quadcopter. It requires a little studying to get the calibrations just ideal. But, after performed, you will obtain that this quad is a serious workhorse. This a person is a little bit of a mash up, with a walkera g-second gimbal and ‘who knows’ camera. I you should not like this arrangement as nicely as i do the stock gimbal and inventory fpv camera. For a single factor, the stock gimbal is controllable from the thumb wheel on the controller, for tilt. The walkera can be, but only with modifications. As well as, i question that this seller mounted the walkera gimbal in the most ideal place in any case. The walkera gimbal was not developed for this quad and you have to do some modifications to each the gimbal and the quad to get the greatest general performance.

    The xk detect x380 is a very sturdy and reliable quadcopter. It takes a little learning to get the calibrations just right. But, once done, you will find that this quad is a real workhorse. This one is a little bit of a mash up, with a walkera g-2d gimbal and ‘who knows’ camera. I don’t like this arrangement as well as i do the stock gimbal and stock fpv camera. For one thing, the stock gimbal is controllable from the thumb wheel on the controller, for tilt. The walkera can be, but only with modifications. Plus, i doubt that this seller mounted the walkera gimbal in the most optimum position anyway. The walkera gimbal was not designed for this quad and you have to do some modifications to both the gimbal and the quad to get the best performance.

      1. Excellent quadcopter, however, the stated “radar positioning and return home. This quad uses gps positioning and does not employ radar, sonar or barometric measurements to maintain position. It will return to its launch point upon command, or if radio communication from the transmitter is lost. Additionally, there are web sites which offer free software that will allow you to change things like the return home altitude, the distance from home you may fly and the speed at which it climbs, descends and travels. Again, this is an excellent quadcopter.

    Was great while it lasted which was about two weeks. Two separate power loss/fall from sky scenarios. The first from about 40 feet and was able to repair. The second was several hundred feet and although the board still powers on, the gps won’t connect and the compass won’t calibrate. There was no indication of issue or attempt to report status problems or rth, just total power loss. This is still a toy grade quad when it gets down to it. Spend the money to build yourself an apm quad and be in control of all aspects of the machine and have additional features.

      1. I received my xk detect x380 on 1/7/16, i had been researching this quadcopter for quite some time and watched several youtube videos on how to calibrate the magnetic compass ect. So, before each flight i would go thru the the calibration process. The first couple of flights it worked perfectly. However, on flight #3 it was a different story right as i took off the quad just started to go wherever it wanted and i had to give it full throttle to keep it from flying away. It eventually just headed into a palm tree but luckily did not get damaged. The next flight it flew perfectly, then the next flight it started to have a mind of its own again and just would not let me control the quad even though it showed that it had gps locked in it just did what it wanted and again eventually crashed into a tree but again escaped damage. This is when i decided that after paying over $500 for a quad it should be more reliable than this and decided to return it. When it did fly correctly it was a very stable and fun to fly, i just couldn’t trust it overall.
