Welcome back to the channel today, we're gon na review the new diatone taken. This is the taken otherwise known as the MX c. I believe I have the digital version, one here, we're gon na compare it to the bumblebee, because this is really the ones you guys are looking at. Should I buy the take ham, the sort of Porsche route named quad. They named it after a Porsche taken, or should I buy it a little bit lighter version the bumblebee. I think there's gon na be some things in this video that help you make a decision I'm not going to push you one way or the other I'm. Just gon na give you the facts. As always: we're gon na talk about the honest comparison, I'm gon na talk about the things I like about each of these quads and we're. Also gon na do a spec check on the new DJI version of this take Han and also the analog version, so you'll be able to get kind of a little bit of best of both worlds. In this review and real world flight tests, we'll do some indoor flying with the take hand as well and we'll, also take them outside and do some mild freestyle some power loops, see which one can handle a power loop and also some nice straight ahead. Fun, cinema type, stuff and I'll show you what you can do with both of these outdoors and see which ones you think by the end of the video is the best here we go guys so let's go ahead and get started at taking.
It comes in two different versions: DJI and analog version, and a four and 6s version, which is nice. Nice surround foam bumpers around each PLA, duct with an extra bit of bracing in here that the bumblebee did not decide to do. I flight left it simple right. There, but the diatone will maybe last a little bit longer with that bracing. Now you have a TPU mount back here for your lollipop three, as well as an immortal tea spot right there and an extra spot right there. If you decide to upgrade that to DJI digital later and two antenna posts back, there, you'll also have good camera protection up front with the foam bumpers and you have it aircraft aluminum in the front, protecting your runcam nano 2. It has an adapter in there to fit carbon bracing on each side, wall as well, protecting it and another strut underneath the bottom, protecting it from the bottom there's. A lot of protection there and 20 by 20 or 30 by 30 mounting points spots for flight controller is nice and I have my fr sky, our excess, our receiver in there and the ducts are slightly different from each design. You can see that these are a little bit thicker on that bumblebee and they're a little thinner on the take in. They also use TPU up front and not on the take hand, and we have a 500 milliwatts etx versus the 400 milliwatts on the take hand.
So just a little bigger VTX on the bumblebee, and I noticed right away that they use the top plate on the take in which I really like so it's separate from the ducts. These two are separate pieces, whereas this one is all one piece. You'Re gon na have to take all these bolts off to be able to get to your flight control risk this one you can take off the top plate on the bottom plate same thing. You have these two pieces. Here are one piece which come off together: that's kind of nice, same thing on this side. If you broke one side, you only have to replace one side out there get to your flight controller here. On the take hand, much quicker, I can remove the screws on the top of the top plate boom I'm in, whereas the bumblebee, probably about 10 screws, have to come up before you can access the flight controller. Now prop comparison. I like these props better than the bullnose style props that come on the 1507 3300 cavies on the bumblebee. Now these are much smoother looking props. They also have the tapered ends on there, which are really smooth. They also have the Mamba 1408 on the take in and 4000 kV on. Those motors plenty of power for 4s now also up front. This one didn't come with a GoPro holder which the the bumblebee the Isolite bumblebee did. So I think that's one thing to consider there also they gave me a strap inside the taken box, which was kind of nice and that additional strap for my 4s 1300, which was my main battery there's, my lollipop three.
In the back, we have a Mamba f4, a five mini MK 3 flight controller, as well as a 4s 25 amp option and a 6 s 35 amp option. If you want to go 6 s, also a mamba TX, 400 milli watt VTX with IRC Tramp, smart audio on board and really briefly the DJI version. You can see your digital antennas sticking out the back right there. Those two antenna posts are mounted to that. Tpu mount and underneath the top plate there is your DGI air module. You can see that SD card slot there and your USB C port. On the other side, you will need a 90 degree USB port to get to that. So here are your two antennas in the very back coming off that TPU mount any kanata crossfire later, if you'd like to. But you get plenty of extras in the box which I like get a full sized beeper on there, you get some extra tubing. You also get some caps, you get some diatone stickers, some zip ties and some m2 Hardware of different sizes and an extra flight controller and esc cable. There let's go ahead and turn on the scale and put the take Han analog version on there. 318 grams, not bad let's, go ahead and put a 4s 1300 battery on there and see what we get 481 grams and let's go ahead and add the GoPro in there, as well as the strap that's gon na go around the GoPro, and that gets us up To 599 grams under 600 grams, not too bad now let's go ahead and put the bumblebee on there and see what we get that's without the battery 284 grams.
The lighter of the two versions and now let's put the 4s 1300 on there and now we're, getting 446 grams and let's go ahead and add the GoPro we don't need to strap here, because we have a TPU. Mount 558 grams is definitely lighter by quite a bit and let's put the take hand. Digital version on there, with the air module 378 and with the 4s 1300 we're up to 540 for grams that's, a pretty competitive as well as adding the GoPro to that equation, gets up to 656 grams. Alright guys let's go ahead and do the fpv flight test. We'Re gon na test out the take in analog version first and then we're gon na jump into showing you some of the bumblebee, as well as the DJI version of the take han and my first trick. I knocked my wife's flowers off the bar. Just then, this is a little larger whoop and it will knock over plants. It will shred flowers, it will pull people's hair, the 1408 motors they are no joke. They'Re super powerful 3 inch props are way different than the micro brushless or some of the brushed ones check out the flowers that shred it across the bar all the way out to the table. There'S, the poor flowers – I put them back up on the bar and clean up the mess. They will definitely shred a flower yeah, so let's go ahead and look at the run cam nano2 on there.
Now this is a little cheaper version. This this version is around one hundred and ninety nine dollars not to make it in this video and they're on pre or right now. I have this version and I have the DJI module version so DJI and the analog version, but I think the run cam a no looks good we've seen this camera before. Do you guys know what to expect here and by the end of this review? Hopefully, you have a good idea of what the takin is capable of and in comparison to the bumblebee, because that's what we're all here for, but so far in the house, is flyable inside. So anybody that did like real estate or something like that. If you want to do a fly through with hyper smooth, you can get to some pretty tight spaces with this, but it does not like curtains so watch out for curtains. It will suck curtains right down into the prop ducts and you'll have a big problem, but it bounces off the bumpers, not a problem. It also has a strange phenomenon where it will suck itself onto a wall. If you get too close to the wall, it'll just go plop on its side and suck to the wall. I found that I was several several times during my flight test indoors, but it also blows a lot of things around it. Sucked up my kids drawings inside they're shredded some paper very, very powerful motors, but in stability mode it's, fun indoors, there's, my kids, two story fort that they were building there.
We go. I almost almost stuck to the wall right there, pretty cool little fort. They have going there and back over the bar and I'm, not flying this one between my legs by the way, because of it it hits my pants. It will shred my pants. These are super powerful let's go ahead and do a little more indoor flying this time. We'Re gon na fly the DJI version indoors, so you can check out what the camera looks like here and there's a lot going on inside this little gas station that's come in converted over to a food truck sort of indoor eating area. It rains a lot in our area, so we we have this nice little place here, no one's in here today, so I'm, just just gon na fly one pack real quick, and I noticed that I could slow it down a lot. I could clear dust from 40 years ago um, but the cool thing is that yeah, you can slow it down a lot and the nice thing about the DJI version. If you want to actually just record with the DJI air module, you can do that 1080p. At 60 frames per second – and I think it looks pretty good – sometimes I think it looks better than the GoPro and again I'm having a lot of control with such a large loop indoors right here. This is actually pretty impressive that I was able to make it through there without bumping anything cuz.
It does have a pretty large footprint I'm, not sure what this person over there on the left doing. We have some strange occurrences happening in Portland. Sometimes it was some strange drug induced dance going on over there or something, but now we're, flying with the GoPro. On top, you guys can see what my GoPro shoots like in comparison to the DJI and again I'm able to get away with some things that I typically wouldn't try with other drones like that was a pretty sketchy place to fly. If I got stuck up, there be really hard to get it back down, but I do keep a pretty long pole in my van for those type of things. You can also get up close and personal to building structure, which is kind of neat, because you can go way up as high as you want. You can almost get stuck, but you can look at things up high, which is neat because you can slow the quad way down. There'S that strange, sucking thing occurring, but doesn't that look cool. This is some really cool architecture here for this basketball court, and this is a covered dome, really nice, no one playing basketball today, it's just kind of rainy and visibly cold outside there goes my water drop on the GoPro video now we're gon na try that power Loop and back around – and it did not give me washout, so I went for a small, tight power loop underneath the swing set, and it was able to do that without washout.
That actually is really great compared to the bumblebee that you're. Looking at now, the boma bee went over the trees and almost a 90 degree turn causing me to crash. When I tried to power that the bumble bee and that's one of the tests that I do with a lot of these three inch, cinema whoops is the power loop and first off, I start out with this type of loop. Usually I don't go for the trees. First, but I had some confidence with the eye flight bumblebee. It was really a really light weight, so I was expecting that it would be able to freestyle, but from what I saw here is that it got a lot of points off or not being able to complete power loop right there, almost bumping back into the ground, Whereas the take hand seems to have more aerobatic type of maneuverability, so yeah there you have it, and then I did this with the taking upside down into the pavements durability. Tests came back, no broken ducts and no problems, but still it's able to loop and not wash out so that's a big that's, a big thing for any type of 3 inches cinema loops, because none of them so far have been able to do that. Except for the take in it seems that the tune I have on the take hand, is really good, and I can't finish this review, obviously, without showing you guys some footage of the bumblebee.
The the bumblebee can come home with some pretty spectacular footage really nice. I didn't see any jello and – and this part of the review for my bumblebee, I did a durability test. An unintentional one did a failsafe straight into this. Rock road BAM, normally PLA ducks. They would be broken at this point yeah. They would definitely be broken, but I was able to get it back up because of the soft bumpers and go fly it again and the soft bumpers I wouldn't say they're, really a safety thing so much as a frame protection. It protects the PLA Ducks inside and that's pretty much. What they're mostly made for is to bring your ducks home in one piece and they actually do work cuz. That was a pretty good fall. That was a fall from about ten feet straight to a rock road which you might as well hit the concrete. When you hit a rock road, I broke the frames on rock roads before definitely on the concrete, but this is the bumblebee again very smooth close to the ground, some pretty cool cinema stuff. You can slow way down instability mode and take some gaps and do some tree exploring with it back through this tree, and this was a little nicer day than when I had with the take hand, but still very wet on the ground just playing around right here. I was just gon na perch on top of my van and now let's go back to the take hand, this is the DJI module which I think recording down to the DVR at 1080p at 60 frames per second looks amazing and now back around this swing set.
Looking really good kind of exploring the terrain out here, finding another gap that's the coolest thing about these little 3 inch whoops – is that they're just like little terrain explorers, you can do a lot of exploring through places you normally wouldn't fly a regular five Clawd without Chainsawing some some branches or getting that ghost branch you hit a ghost branch with these prop guards it's just mostly just gon na bounce off. In here I decided a slow way down to stability and do a little bit of tree, exploring which this is super fun. You'Ve seen me do this with smaller quads, like the gap, RC sin III, and that can just about go anywhere and back down and the Senate. I also recorded HD video, which is super cool, so for the last part of this flight test. I wanted to see some more maneuvers in a tighter space around tree branches. I want to try to flip again and I was able to pull it off that time and here's a really low power loop, which I would never ever do normally almost zero washout on that power. Loop around that tree branch, and that was a low power loop, which is fairly hard for any Center whoop out there to do so, I think the take in is probably winning the tune contest between the eye flight bumblebee and the taken in log or the DJI Version so let's go back into the studio now and and it's gon na be a big toss up here.
Let'S do some final thoughts, so if you made it this far in the review, you have a pretty good overview of both of these quads. They look strikingly similar. They are semi same price out there. One does freestyle a little better than the other one. I would say, light freestyle for the take and versus the bumble bee. The bumble bee didn't want to freestyle at all. It had bad washout and had some issues, but both of them are quite durable. The prop guards worked very well. The TPU inserts did not break the Ducks came home in one piece versus the megabee that I had before came home with a couple different sets of broken PLA ducks. So this is a major advantage over not having the foam bumpers on on a three inch whoop. So both of them do look so similar, but there are big differences. I love the top plate. That'S removable on the take hand, it's much easier to work on. I, like the extra bracing on this one as well, and I like the tuned, take him versus the bumblebee. So if I was to take either one of these on a trips, I might have to pick out to take in to take out with me, because I trust it more in those high throttle situations. So I think they have done a lot of things right here. They also went back to the drawing board because they had some issues with fitting some of the screws properly on the frame.
They went back to the bench on the CNC side of things and they fix things for you guys, which made it a couple: different versions on the release, but now they're. Finally to the point where they're ready for the retail version and it's good to go. I'M. Happy to say that both versions fly extremely well and the tune is good, so definitely supported by me.
