Syma was one of those names a few years ago that always came up when it came to inexpensive drones that were also suitable for beginners. Especially the Syma X5 found many fans and above all many imitators. Now we have the Syma X8 Pro and take a look at the latest version of the X8 series.
Whether you’re looking for quadrocopters, helicopters, drones or racecars – Everything you can control with a remote control will end up here, ranging from DJI to Xiaomi, to JJRC & Cheerson.
Here is a real dream gadget, which originally caused two problems. Problem 1: the air swimmers cost about $50, problem 2: you need helium. At least problem 1 has been solved, because the Air-Swimmers are now available for under $10, cheaper than most mini drones. Only the helium still has to be taken care of.
Many of these Lego-style kits are primarily aimed at a younger target group. This Double Eagle motorcycle with sidecar, which places more emphasis on realism, is perhaps more for collectors.
“Bigger is always better”? Whoever thinks that is definitely wrong about this drone. The Cheerson Stars-D “Eagle” is the newest offshoot of the Stars series, which is one of the smallest quadrocopters ever. New is the remote control, which can be operated with one hand and an upgraded design.
“Just because you are unique, does not mean you are useful”. With the Kai Deng K130 Alpha , I must inevitably think of this quote, because at the first moment I wonder what the advantage of the design should bring. On closer inspection, however, it becomes clear that there are indeed advantages.
With this quadcopter drone you can even go outside with foul weather: The JJRC H31 is water resistant and survives even a submerge without consequences. That sounds quite nice.
Drones are always a good idea to buy, as they are fun for every age. One of these drones is the WLtoys Q353. The Quadrocopter has an unusual design, it has more like a boat shaped and has two floating bodies instead of support feet. Because of that it can land on water, start and even move forward.
Okay, granted, slowly you could indeed lose track of all the different Cheerson CX-10 drones. After all, there is already the CX-10 CX-10A CX-10C, 10D CX, CX-10W and CX-10WD. The Cheerson CX-10SE is probably most similar to the CX-10A. It’s a mini-drone for beginners with a handy protective frame and definitely one for small budgets.
The Eachine E33C from Eachine is a small, in it’s equipment-class, average quadrocopter. It comes with a 2MP camera and a battery, which allows for up to 10 minutes of flight. Eachine now sells the drone alongside some other models on Amazon and thereby offers prime shipping.
The smallest drone from DJI is called Spark and is mainly advertised as a Selfie drone. The functions of the small quadrocopter revolve around the most uncomplicated control and personal recording. For this, however, DJI also asks for cash: the starting price was $499. But what do you get for your money?
The Techboy TB-802 is a drone like many others but has a special remote control striking. This is more like a computer mouse than a gamepad and controls the quadcopter over movements of your hand.
A Monster Truck that can drive without battery, LiPo and without solar panel? Yes that is possible: with the DIY Saltwater Monster Truck. Just build the vehicle yourself and fuel it with saltwater.
