Welcome my friends now in today’s video we’re going to be doing the actual flight test indoors and maybe a little bit outdoors as well of the der c d50, so without further ado, let’s get into it. Okay! So, first of all, i thought i’m gon na try. It outside on one of my fields that i normally test my drones out on uh. It was quite windy, 8 to 10 miles per hour, but i thought i’ll give it a try. The altitude hull seems to be working really well. It is quite windy. So at this point the gust of wind comes along and starts taking it towards the left hand, side and closer and closer to the trees and guess what happened? Well, i think you can guess what happened it got stuck in a tree, but luckily it was a low tree and i was able to grab it. You can see it. It looks okay, it’s, a bit windy. It didn’t do very good still working. So at this point i decide you know what the wind’s getting stronger now uh it’s not going to be very good, so i’m going to take it indoors and try and film this indoors and maybe a little bit in the back garden if the wind subsides. Okay, so finally we’re indoors it’s, nice and warm and guess what there’s, no wind and no trees so that’s a bonus. Okay, so, first of all we’re going to do some basic controls, we’ve just the controller and without the app so first of all, let’s take off now, as you can see here, it’s hovering pretty well.
There is some downwash from the propeller propeller washer coming pushing down. So it just drifts somewhat, even if you trim it, it will still drift sometimes and then put you know what i’m quite impressed you can see here: i’m, just holding the controller there and it’s just more or less staying in a kind of a small area. So that’s absolutely great the altitude hold on this is actually not too bad at all for the price, so here i’m rolling, left and right. The controls on this are quite sharp and that’s a good thing. You know it’s very interactive, you know when you move it. One way or the other immediately it responds it’s, really really good. You know up and down there left and right really really good, really interactive. You know nice control to the drone as well, so here we’re going to go forwards and backwards as much as we can in the house and again, very, very responsive. I think this is on about 25 to 50 speed, which is adequate for me inside the house. I don’t want to start crashing it too much. You know so here, we’re gon na your it to the left and the right and again it just spins, and it keeps that hide. The altitude hold is actually pretty pretty good and it only starts losing that either when i move it or when it starts getting a little bit low on battery here, it’s almost like we’re dancing with the drone.
You know i mean apologies when it goes out of shots, sometimes but yeah. You know it just goes round and round and round – and you know the the chance of crashing it’s actually quite low, although i have crashed it a couple of times so here, while we’re playing around with it the battery. Now, as you can hear, the beep uh, that means low battery warning all four lights on the bottom of the drone. As you can see, there are flashing and the beak from the controller continues until you land the drone. So, after a little bit more of a slight little play with the drone, i decided i’m going to press the button and land it to save the battery okay. So here we have the drcd50 here. If you press instruction, you get all of what each of those does so let’s just move back here. Uh, you can click on the album as well, and you can see things that you’ve taken videos of or pictures, etc. Okay, and we can press start okay. So, as you can see there, we have the floor the wooden floor, okay, so here we have the photos. We can take a photo there. As you heard, we can take a photo, a video, okay uh. We can stop that. We can access the photos and the videos we just took. Okay, you got some other options. There you’ve also got the on button there. Now here you have your take off and land button here, which is that one? You also have your gesture where you can record or take photos.
Okay, you have your tap to fly where you like that, and it follows it around uh. You also have the vocal voice commands as well. Now i have to try these out and they do not work, or at least they didn’t work. Okay, now it’s gon na be a bit more difficult indoors to try, but we’ll try our best. So, as you can see here, we have the controller okay and we can do that anywhere on each of the sides there. But as far as i’m aware they don’t work either. Okay, so i’m, going to start up the drone now i’m going to try and take off by pressing this button here, nothing now i’m going to take off manually and i’m going to sit i’m going to press that and see if it lands. Okay, i’m. Just going to control it there and press it again and nothing: okay, so that’s not working the tap to fly Music, doesn’t work. Okay, so let’s get rid of that. Okay, let’s try and control it using the on screen controller, these it’s doing absolutely nothing there. We go just move it back ourselves. I might try and fly this outside as well at the moment. Just so you can see, but you know what the image quality on the screen recording here on the actual fpv rather is actually okay. Okay, so i try the voice commands. I try to say land forward backwards, left right, fly i’m already flying but hey ho, and you know what they don’t work and guess what neither does the gesture controls as well let’s land, this and then we’ll, take it outside and just see exactly what how good It is Music, Music, Applause, Music Applause, Applause, Applause, Applause, Music, Applause, okay, so my final thoughts on the drc: d50 after completing the unboxing setting up and the test flight as well.
Now you know what i think, it’s, actually quite a decent drone for the price point. Okay, 70 80 pounds it’s going to cost. I think it’s on amazon, 70 80 pounds there’s, actually a 10 link discount code for amazon, for both the usa and the uk in the description below so take a look at that if you’re considering buying it like. I said this is not a pay promotion whatsoever. It’S just there for your convenience as well. Now would i recommend this drone, i think that’s, the main question, but first of all, let’s have a quick look at some of the features about this drone. Now the 2k camera you know it’s, it does the job. You know on the in the app it does the job i wouldn’t personally use the app apart from taking photos and recording it and using the fpv, but the the features in it. Aren’T great. They don’t work a lot of the time if at all, i don’t know if you’re saying the incompatibility with my phone or with android itself, but it is the latest update. So personally for me, it didn’t. If i, if this was my drone, then i probably wouldn’t use it apart from taking photos on that, the camera is a 2k camera. The resolution is a little bit kind of out of sync it squashed slightly, but apart from that it’s okay, it does the job it is manually adjustable which, on some of them, you don’t actually get adjustable.
Um cameras, you know, even if it is manual on some of the cheaper drones, so actually not too bad. You know it gives you options, i suppose, at the very least, uh landing legs and propeller guards yeah still a little flimsy, but you know what i’ve had. No problems with them and they do the job now, in my last video you will notice, i did say about these – is actually quite difficult to get back on, uh or take off rather, but that came off pretty easy and i’ve put it back on and it Clicks in really really easy, so i’m going to take that back actually about the propeller guards. Once you wouldn’t you actually maybe it’s my old age, i don’t know, but once you actually practice a little bit with them, it’s actually quite easy, uh, so yeah the landing legs they do, the job they’re, absolutely fine. The controller is really nice to work with. You know – and it holds your phone pretty well i’m – pretty pleased with that uh, the propellers they’re really quite hard. The whole drone is actually quite hard, it’s, actually quite uh resistance and resilient. You know um flying it quite decent indoors. You do have to obviously keep an eye on it in smaller spaces. Uh outdoors, you have to be careful of the wind. If you are in a flight outdoors flight outdoors on a gentle gentle non windy day, you know, i think, that’s, probably the best bet putting 100 speed and go from there indoors, whatever you’re comfortable, with with the speed, okay and depending on the size of your room.
But do put these on in your room just in case altitude hold outside actually works, pretty well, okay, my first test actually held there pretty pretty well, but obviously you’ve got to keep an eye on it. You know it’s not got gps. It’S not got any kind of flow sensors on the bottom, or nothing like that now, overall, would i purchase this drone for 70 80 pounds even with a discount down below in the description? No, i would not purchase this drum because i personally don’t need it. Would i recommend this to a beginner yeah? Would i purchase this from one of my older children? Yes, i would so yeah so overall yeah, i would recommend it. I think, for the price great, the lights are great. He does the 3d flips absolutely perfect. You know the key: does it’s got the camera on there and for the price it’s, actually not too bad at all, and i like these drives because they are good to teach you how to fly. You know manually, if you will, because these drones are actually a lot harder to fly than the more expensive gps drones and if you crash them, you haven’t spent hundreds and hundreds of pounds or maybe even a thousand or two pounds on a drone setup. That’S the end of the review. Thank you. Drc holy stone for sending me this drone out the drc d50. There is a link in the description down below if you want to purchase this drone.
This is not a paper motion, as i said before, but uh drc have kindly sent me out this drone for free and, as a result, i’m going to donate this drone to one of my younger family members so that they can get into drones and hopefully spark That interest in them they’re only like 14 15 years old, but you know what i think they will enjoy this drone.
