There's something special about flying a tiny drone equipped with a first-person-view camera. The ability to fly indoors without as acute a fear of crashing, squeezing through tight spaces best experienced with an FPV headset—such experiences make every short flight well worth it. The Cheerson CX-10W is another drone in this mold. From the same company that brought you this UFO drone among other quality UAS, this upgraded version of the CX-10 Mini is a third generation hobby flier with some surprising features packed in.
Available for under $35, there's no questioning that the CX-10W is one of the least monetarily burdensome ways to get into aerial photography. It is claimed that the CX-10W is the smallest FPV drone, a hook perhaps designed to in some way beat the slew of Tiny Whoop clones that have flooded the market in the last year or so (a relative drawback of the CX-10 being its lack of propeller guards, something you'll find on both the Tiny Whoop and any of its faithful design devotees). The four minute flight time is unimpressive yet not unexpected, and the flight quality decent, with an easy calibration system providing much needed stability to the often hectic flight patterns of micro drones.
These nano drones are pretty small, to be sure—but there exist more specialized drones that are much, much smaller. Reports in recent years tell of research, such as that conducted at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, studying whether microscopic drones could be used to perform such medical feats as repair arteries or clear away arterial plaque. Even if your aims with drones are less impressive than this, and I know mine are, one never knows what may come of a newfound familiarization with developing technology.
Very happy with this little quad and its performance. The camera is better than expected and the charge time is quick. Fun indoor flier.
Could not get it to turn on even after charging for half an hour. Returning it.
Very fine "toy"; amazing camera, in spite of very small size. By the way, it works also with the old CX-10 remote control, of course without camera view.
Very impressed with this drone, what it can do for the low price is very impressive. It isn't as quick or as acrobatic as the regular CX-10... but still very fun to play with.
Unit was not working on arrival. It had broken wires! Very disapointed! I want a refund or a new one
Wasn't expecting too much from this product initially but am very impressed! Was a present for my younger brother (13) and he loves it! Very impressed! Exceeded expectations!
