There is a certain irreducible wisdom to understanding a system’s operational parameters before stressing its performance limitations. While acceleration is useful, the steering, shifting and braking functions should be equally comprehended before taking the Lamborghini for a test spin on the freeway at rush-hour. As this applies to terrestrial devices limited by gravity, it must even more so to things which defy gravity. Gravity, as everyone knows, does not take kindly to defiance. There are many delightful items presently available to the hearty consumer – or the consumer with hearty credit – which offer gravity defiance to people with no flight experience whatsoever.
As that up-going is invariably down-coming, mishap potential drives the wise shopper to the less expensive options for such experimentation. As they exist in wild abundance ranging from the price of a large pizza to that of a down payment on a small car, it becomes a matter of specific appeals. Even though most quad-copters come with cameras -- because everything comes with cameras -- not all quads should be considered for serious photographic needs. While the DJI Phantom 4 sets photographic standards high, one wisely doesn’t cut their teeth on such a lofty competitor. Toys like the Syma X12S Nano are fun, but for many, the real thrill of flying something comes from being able to see it.
Wltoys Q222G is fairly distinguishable with its candy apple red fuselage and distinctive X shape; it also comes in black. As a toy grade quad, it is a rare one that has a barometric sensor which helps it maintain altitude. This, coupled with the 6-axis gyro, provides for very smooth and easily controlled flight. The 5.8G FPV controller is a busy unit, lots of buttons and knobs. As with pretty much all of them, the monitor’s sunscreen is highly ineffective. The Q222G has Headless mode and automatic landing. Not an aerobatic flier, its 720p camera takes the quality of footage one would expect from a toy.
I can fly it while it's in the Aircraft start mode, but it doesn't go higher than about 4 feet. I don't really know how to get it to fly. The instructions are very vague.
Barometer level is awesome, easy to learn and very durable. Unclear instruction manual, unable to figure out all features.
This is the easiest quadcopter to fly for beginners. My six your old son can fly this quadcopter. Very stable flight, the barometer makes it so easy.
Good product for me as new drone owner. Good product WLtoys!
