Multiple Flight Modes
The FQ17W Foldable Pocket Drone is is undoubtedly great for beginners, children and those who have literally never even been near a drone in their lives! Whilst certainly not a top level pro drone, this drone certainly has enough great features to provide many exciting and enjoyable flights.
The drone includes various convenient and fun flight modes such as ‘Altitude Hold Mode,’ ‘Headless Mode’ and ‘High Speed / Low Speed’ modes.
In ‘Altitude Hold Mode,’ the drone maintains a consistent altitude whilst allowing the pilot to still control the yaw, roll and pitch normally.
In ‘Headless Mode’ the aircraft does not need its position to be adjusted before flying, so the pilot can effectively jump straight into the action.
The ‘High Speed / Low Speed’ mode allows for the pilot to have full control over his / her flight experience, and thus beginner pilots have the chance to fly in slow mode should they need more time to get to grips with the basics!
The FQ17W Foldable Pocket Drone possesses other advanced features such as ‘One Key Take-Off & Landing’ which allows for automatic take off or landing, merely at the press of a button. Effectively, therefore the drone will take off or go back to the place where it took off, making life much easier for total beginners!
This best selling drone also possesses the ability to perform 3D flips and rolls at the mere press of a button. Just be sure to be careful where you attempt this manoeuvre!
The FQ17W Foldable Pocket Drone allows for exceptional portability due to its compact design. The drone possesses foldable arms, thus allowing for a small profile for transportation, as well as a futuristic, sleek look.
The drone also includes LED lights for increased illumination and visibility at night time, and thus, it is harder to lose the drone in darker light conditions.
Adding further to the drone’s credentials as an excellent beginner level drone, the FQ17W Foldable Pocket Drone is also pretty durable, and thus, it should stand up to at least a few beginner pilot errors!
Another good point about this fun mini aircraft, is that as it is on the lower end of the price scale, should you somehow manage to damage the drone (despite its durability) spare parts are available relatively cheaply. Spare propellers, for instance, can be bought for very low cost on GeekBuying here for less than 3 USD (EUR 2.05 / GBP 1.77)!
