Dual Rotor Bi-Copter LYZRC L100 Review and Test
Im gon na pull it a little bit more, oh angry now, and look at that. That is awesome, Music, so Music, Music, Music, so Music, so Music, so Music, so Music, hello, everyone and welcome to the channel. Today we are taking a look at the ly: zrcs l100. It is a foldable 5g wi fi one kilometer fpv transmission, 2.7 k camera two axis mechanical gimbal electronic image, stabilization 26 minute flight time, dual tilting, rotor v, copter ready to fly so taking a closer look at this thing it has only two arms in a v Shape, instead of the usual four arms found in a quadcopter, it has 30 amp escs, with the 1506 1700 kv, brushless motors with the dual bladed floppy props, that are the leaflet, design, theres led status lights on each of the motor pod and the motor pod will Tilt forward and backward in unison or independently from each other to control the bicopters pitch the roll and yaw. Now in the front, we have the 2.7 k, hd camera with electronic image. Stabilization mounted on a two axis mechanical gimbal and has 110 degree field of view. I will record 2k photos and 2k videos to the micro sd card if a micro sd card is inserted and it will record 1080p photos and 720p videos to the phone app and thus into the camera roll of your device. The phone app is called the vs gps pro app, a free downloadable app in the app store, so go ahead and check it out now the camera can be remotely tilted to about 80 degrees, almost straight down and also about 80 degrees.
Almost straight up, so you can get shots from above or from an aerial perspective or below the desired object or from a so called worms eye view on the bottom. We have the four silicon rubber pads to stick that landing and we have the optical flow sensor. Camera system for horizontal positioning when flying without gps – and there is a white led light on the bottom as well and finally in the rear, is the battery bay just press this little button here, pull it out to remove the battery. Now the battery is a 1800 milliamp, 7.7 volt, 25 c battery, which is set to be good for about 26 minutes of flight time charge it up via the type c port using the provided charge. Cable now the on and off switch is right in the center. In the back of the battery so short press to check the charge level – and that is indicated by four blue – led lights, long press to power up the battery. There are some red led lights built into the battery and long press to power. The battery off – and this is exactly how the quadcopter will power on and power off as well, so simply slide it back in and it will click into place now. The remote controller doesnt have any pull out hand grips on the bottom, but it does have a pull out phone holder and also flip out antennas. It has the flat black exterior finish and it does have contours in the back for a comfortable grip.
Now the antenna on the right side does have an antenna wire running up the antenna, but the antenna on the left side does not. Now the antenna interface inside is a ufl ipex connector. So it is easy to upgrade the antenna. So on the left, shoulder we have a rotary dial that is to remotely tilt the camera tilt angle and a dedicated photo button on the right. Shoulder is another rotary dial and it is to remotely change the camera filters, yeah camera filters, and we also have a dedicated video button in the front we have the lcd display screen with the familiar mjx style display. We have the gps, slash optical flow sensor button and we have a button with a letter. P in red and a short press will initiate the compass calibration with this button and a long press will initiate the emergency. Stop. We have the speed, control button speeds, one and two can be had. We have the sliding power switch and we have the return to home button. Both sticks to the bottom and out will arm and disarm the motors of the bicopter and both sticks to the bottom and to the right will calibrate the gyros of the bicopter charge up the 3.7 volt 600 milliamp size built in battery via the micro usb port. In the rear, with the provided charge – cable, okay, here we go with the demo flight of the ly zrcz l, 100, the bicopter or the y copter.
So lets go ahead and push in the battery all the way power it up. Music: okay, the escs have sung their song turn on the remote automatically binds so lets go ahead and turn on the phone app go into the settings, go to the wi fi section of the settings and connect to the xg steam dash 2 wi fi network, and It is already connected and the phone app is called the vs gps pro free downloadable app in the app store, go ahead and check it out. You need to open the network permission to connect i connected so here we go and we got wi fi fpv. So there we go, it is a phone app, so you can enlarge. It enlarge the screen, but it doesnt want to do that so im just going to leave it just like right there, all right so lets, go ahead and calibrate the compass so long press the p button over here or kind of semi long press it there. You go and what it looks like is ive done a compass calibration in this location prior to this just to check it out, so i dont think it wants to do a compass calibration, but the compass calibration is as follows. After you have initiated the compass calibration with that red button, uh after it beeps, you rotate it horizontally 360 degrees for a couple of times until it beeps and once it beeps, you rotate it vertically, another 360 degrees a few times and another beep is heard, and Once that other beep is hurt, you are done calibrating the compass, okay, but it looks like i dont need to do that, because its not letting me know to rotate the bicopter on the phone app which it usually does.
Okay, so the next thing you want to do is calibrate the gyro, so both sticks at the bottom and to the right will calibrate the gyros there. You go and the red lights flash really fast and i guess the uh, the camera already got calibrated. You dont really need to do the gyro calibration somebodys racing down the street over there. Okay, the light is still blinking takes a while for it to calibrate the gyros, and there you go, the lights have turned solid, and now the white led lights on. The bottom is flashing, so compass, calibration and gyro calibration has been done and looks like i got eight satellites on the satellite count. Im gon na screen record one there you go screen is recording all right, so here we go, we can go ahead and check it out here lets check out the camera. Oh yeah, it looks very nice and smooth okay lets tilt the camera or roll the camera side to side here and look at that. The gimbal is really steady. Lets do some pitch. Oh yeah, nice and smooth this one got a very nice two axis gimbal, plus electronic image. Stabilization to boot, so were gon na have some nice smooth videos looks like all right so lets. Take some photos here with the phone app and lets take a photo right here: okay, it takes a while for it to save the photo and download the photo a windlass day this morning, so very nice.
Its been windy like the last week, so i wasnt really able to fly this thing. Okay photo there and photo here, and even though im tilting the camera down towards the ground, i still got horizon level horizon 50, 50, 50 sky 50 percent ground. Because of the two axis, gimbal very nice, so if you want to catch capture the ground, you can tilt the camera angle. If you want to capture the sky, you can tilt the camera angle up on this one, all the way up to 80 degrees, alright. So taking some photos there, im gon na go ahead and record a video. So let me go ahead and hit this button over here. There you go recording a video, so im gon na come back to the phone app im gon na leave it on the table over here. Well be back for it in a little while now lets go and check out the l100 so lets see if it flies. Okay, so both sticks at the bottom and out will arm and disarm the motor so lets arm the motors. Oh look at that its calibrating, the rotors, oh and the motors turn on all right, theres, no one key to take off so manually, taking off. Oh and it has a safety timeout as well, so this antenna has the antenna wire running up bit so this one. I want to tilt it up just like that, because i hold the remote control like this, and i want it pointing straight up this one.
You can leave it folded down, because this is a fake antenna, so lets arm the motors and whoa whoa whoa whoa. It has a backward drift as soon as you take off. When i let go of the sticks. Yes, it does have gps position hold it. It is wobbling just a little bit its just got dual motors, and it is amazing how this thing is: Music, steady like that doesnt, quite yaw in place Music, because the rotors have to adjust, but look at that pretty decent for a bicopter dual rotor copter nice Right so lets see what speed we are in. Okay, thats speed, two speed one. So you see the white led light on the bottom flashing, its just giving off constant flashes. It doesnt stay on or anything and theres no button to turn it on or off. Okay. So here we go full pitch forward and lets see full yaw there. You go nice, a bicopter guys its flying better than some of the quadcopters. Look at that, oh Music. It went down in altitude after that turn, but it sped up like crazy at one point. So i can kind of see that it depletes battery once you start making turns and going fast and it drops to the ground so be careful. Give it some altitude there you go speed number one thats, pretty good and letting go of the sticks has a slight rear drift and now that comes to a halt and holds this position.
Pretty good speed number two two beeps full pitch and full yaw im going to give it a little bit of throttle too, so it doesnt drop down in altitude because it seems like its dropping down in altitude already. I can feel it so there you go speed. Number two and lets just go well i just pitched forward like crazy because of the tilting rotors once in a while it tilts too much so lets see speed, number two normal speed, whoa whoa, whoa, whoa. Okay, look at that looks more like a fixed wing airplane, but it has some speed once you pitch forward and it gets going and the rotors tilt yeah its got some speed, all right all right, so that was speed. One and two im gon na go back down to speed one guys all right so lets turn it around and keep it like right about here lets check out the video. I want to see how steady the video is. Okay, do i have video pointed towards me yep i do lets. Do some roll is moving around back and forth? Oh see it drops down in altitude there, but the video is pretty much steady and its completely crooked um. The gimbal is kind of off way off. Okay lets wait for a little bit. Okay lets see if it straightens itself out and slowly looks like its straightening out. So lets do some camera tilt angle. Here: okay, there we go camera tilt angle, okay, almost straight down; 80 degrees, almost 90 degrees and going up it just has a single speed, servo and look at that.
I can go all the way up – almost almost 90 degrees up to 80 degrees and im coming down and look at that. Wow. Okay lets go back up and lets turn to the left, because the sun is right up there: okay, bringing it back down there. You go, you see the sun there now im tilting up almost straight up kind of catching the side of the quadcopter or the bicopters frame in the front. Okay, tilting back down and looks like it kind of froze. Okay. There we go coming back down come on, it does not want to come down. Okay, now its coming down there, you go okay, im gon na tilt it back up. Actually i was uh rotating the dial, the wrong way and it doesnt want to stop. You just want to keep going. I cant stop it. There you go stopped, it go up. A little bit, go up a little bit Music. There you go. If you hold it for a little too long, it will continue to go up or go down. Okay, so right about there is what i want all right. So there you go now lets go ahead and bring it down and establish our home point here: Music. There you go holding the stick all the way down and the motors turn off nice. It sticks the landing as well im im impressed. It flies really nice, okay, so thats gon na be the new home point.
So lets go ahead and arm the motors and take off and looks like the rear is heavy. The back of the bicopter is heavier, so it kind of goes backwards, a little bit on the take off, but it readjusts and look at that. Its holding pretty steady now. Okay, so lets turn off the gps. So now we only have optical flow sensor and it does have a drift. The optical flow sensor is not working very well because its just drifting away, oh man, its just drifting away, and it just wants to go. Okay, let me turn the gps back on and it is slowing down and holding position. So you need to have the gps position on on this one and its flying back this way. Okay, so there we go all right so lets, leave it right there and come back over here and what im gon na do is start my screen, recording and restart my screen recording three two one boom: okay, just to have that saved all right, and also what Im gon na do is stop the video recording and then restart the video recording. So i have that saved yeah. I can still see that the gimbal is slightly crooked here. Okay, it has about 26 minutes of flight time. So hopefully we havent wasted that much okay. So lets go ahead and check out the return to home. Since we already established our home point im going to hit the return home button and it is rising up in altitude, oh turns around pre designated height, okay.
There you go, i think, its going to miss the landing pad by a lot. No, no look at that its making adjustments as its coming down and it slows down right at about little seven or eight foot level and lands itself a little farther away from the home point. But it is still nice and it sticks stuck that landing too. So pretty nice lets go ahead and check it out, one more time im going to pitch forward as im taking off, because it has a rear drift or rear, pull, probably because of the weight. One more time im going to hit the return home and the memory should be fresh because we just took off turns around again so far. This thing is really nice. It flies really good. I am impressed, i am very impressed and it just comes right down. Like look at that, it wobbles a little bit but man okay, this time a little bit closer to the center of the home point nice, okay, so this time lets take off with the forward pitch, so it takes off straight forward or straight up. Okay and this time lets check out the fail, safe return, home, letting go of the sticks, and it takes a little bit, but its holding position now so im going to test out the fail, safe, return home im going to turn off my remote controller lets see What happens it? Doesnt? Look like its gon na come home, so this is one of those copters where you need to have the wi fi connection lost as well, and since this thing has a 1 000 meter, fpv transmission distance and 1 200 meter control distance.
The wi fi will disconnect at one thousand meters and then as its traveling towards the 1200 meters. It will lose connection and since it will lose connection with the wi fi uh signal, as well as the remote control signal after the first 1000 meters, then it will initiate. I am thinking all right, so it is not coming home guys so im gon na turn. The remote control back on and lets see. Yes, i have regained control of it all right, pretty decent wow. Very nice lets do some fpv. Ah, this thing is nice and smooth wow. I am impressed some quadcopters dont. Have this smooth flying characteristics here? Let me yaw a little bit: oh, its a seriously low battery force, return, landing and its turning around by itself, and it is heading back home, awesome, very nice coming right back. It should be right above me: there you go b line back to where it took off from sort of holding position repositioning itself and will it land. It is a seriously low battery, but it is not thinking about coming down. It is holding this position, but it is holding position not thinking about landing, so i do believe this may be phase one of low voltage lets see if theres a geo fence pushing it out and continuing to push it out, and it is not moving beyond that Point so about 30 meters, or so is the geo, fencing and im turning around coming this way.
Okay, let me uh beer to the towards the field over here and there you go is continuing to go and hit the geofence right there and its hovering right where it is and im pitching forward. Okay, so thats the first phase of low voltage. It does not come back home and it has a geo, fencing radius of 30 meters. Look at that it flies so nice i am like in awe. It is a bicopter. Two rotors kinda looks like a fixed wing airplane with propellers wow technology. Eh. Look at that nice and smooth. I wonder if the yaw is a little jittery, a little shaky, a vibratory on the video just dual rotors i mean even dji. Products has a little bit of vibration on the yaw factor on the video, so im just going to continue to fly around until the critical phase of the low voltage kicks in and lets see. What happens when that kicks in? Does it come home and land or does it just land wherever it is? It should come home but just in case ill, lower its altitude just a little bit and then fly on this side where its nice and flat okay, so im going to continue to do some fpv. I guess ill, lower the camera tilt angle. So i can see a little bit below oh ive, missed myself. Let me go, this way, looks like it just landed and i was doing a camera tilt and there it is, i think, its bouncing up and down and there it is oh, no, it finally stopped and it was going side to side and it hit one of The rotors on the ground, so there you go, that is the flight time of the lyz rcs l100 lets take it back to the table here.
So there you have it guys: the l y z, r c s, l 100, the bicopter or the y copter. Really really surprised me with this flight capabilities with just dual rotors that rotate to maintain its position. Uh, it forward pitched really fast quite a few times, and it went dipping down in altitude where i have to slow it down and throttle up to maintain its altitude. But other than that it flew fantastic. It surprised the heck out of me and the video quality from this 2k camera the gimbal. The eis, is also amazing such steady video from a bicopter. I was expecting the video to be jerky and with a lot of tilting motion and all that, but ive seen none of that. So it is a fantastic little uh machine engineering is excellent. Uh the technology is so advanced. Now i mean to make a bicopter with dual rotors: that is just fantastic uh for consumer electronic product.
