What can we say but wow! When they said good things come in small packages they went wrong, particularly where the FQ777 FQ11 mini quadcopter is concerned. This is a fun machine and those small, it is extremely fast and very powerful as well as being exceptionally responsive.
Now if that wasn’t good enough news, at 18g in weight, you don’t have to register it with the FAA which means as soon as it arrives on your doorstep, you can unpack it and legally fly it. Foldable quadcopter is becoming quite fashionable these days and we particularly like the fact that this little mini quadcopter fits snugly into the controller which not only helps to keep everything in the one place, but also nicely protects the quadcopter itself.
Now at prices ranging from between $25 and $50, this might seem about right for a mini quadcopter, but this is more of a premium version than a basic version and when you consider that you can get up to 10 minutes’ flying time from it, that should give you an indication that this is a punchy little machine. We were also impressed with a flying range up to 50m, which is ample for a mini quadcopter. Interestingly though, it also comes with a built in camera so it is also a great introduction to the joys of drone photography.
We managed to find a great video on YouTube which will give you a very clear impression of just how swift and responsive this mini quadcopter is and we have to say that we were is taken by surprise at the speed and agility of this little gem as SeBy DocKy, courtesy Gearbest.
So what is our overall opinion of this mini quadcopter. To be honest, this is probably one of the best around and certainly while we try to look for fault, when you look at the price it is very difficult to find fault anywhere. If you haven’t tried it quadcopter before or know somebody who you think would really enjoy being introduced to the delights of becoming a fully-fledged quadcopter pilot, this is a great place to start that certainly won’t break the bank.
