Editorial Review

Contixo sells four types of products: tablets, smartphones, smart home devices, and drones. Their suite of a dozen or so drones come in a few different flavors, but most are black quadcopters classifiable as "hobby-grade" on par with those offered by, say, Syma or World Tech Toys. The F7 fits that Contixo paradigm: a medium-sized, camera-equipped quadcopter, though one with a few surprises in store for the discerning buyer (good ones, of course).

The F7 is not an expensive drone, and given that fact, the specification that stands out most about it is its advertised maximum flying time. Their proprietary 1000 milliamp-hour high capacity batteries are both fairly cheap and sufficiently powerful to keep the F7 aloft for up to fifteen minutes, a total that absolutely blows away most drones in the F7's price class. Contixo is also known to be a brand reliable for delivering speedy fliers, and the F7 doesn't disappoint here, either (side note: strangely, max speed isn't a frequently measured statistic for drones; consult a video for proof of this statement).

The standard features for good hobby-grade fliers, like one-key return, "headless" mode (really just a height-setting function), and one-key take-off and landing are all here, packed into a two pound drone with a fuselage reminiscent of a modern stealth bomber. The final surprise the F7 has in store is its ability to be run without the use of its accompanying controller via the Contixo smartphone application (which you can operate on your other Contixo hardware if so inclined), though piloting via WiFi restricts the maximum flight distance to 50 meters.
