I put that tag on me. No i’ll be rocking v long, like it’s, my tapestry, i don’t know how to act. I got a bag on me. I got a rack on me. It ain’t no cap on me. I smoke a pack, you see my led japanese. I come down again. I smoke some more and they come back to me. Like i’m, from outer space, marshall’s running laps with me, i might got ta pack on me: yo it’s, your boy moe host of the 290 mo podcast, and this is my review of the iashin 520s foldable drone what’s up man. Let me take you for a little spin. Man show you what it feels like. I got. Ta go make these droppers the only one out here, working b i got ta make drop offs too b come on man get in man, they taking no full answer. Music man, Applause, Music, now getting right to it. Um. When i first bought the drone, i always run to youtube click, uh click search review, so i’ll know what i’m getting into what i notice a lot of the reviews. They’Re long they don’t get to the point. So what i want to do i’m, gon na review, this drone do a quick unboxing but i’m gon na get straight to the point, and let you know if this is a drone for you or not um, as you can see at the beginning of the video, I showed a few clips here and there, but right now, i’m, giving you my pros and cons and at the end i’ll show you what i what i what i got into um flying drones for in the first place, so getting right into it.
Um, it comes in this in two boxes. You come in the in the in the drone box and inside it comes in the heart, nice and a nice carrying case and that’s. Only if you buy the 150 version um, i believe it’s, a dollar version or a 90 89 version, something like that where you only get the drone in one battery, but this one comes with the case. It comes with the case and two extra batteries, two extra propellers and the charger i’m, not sure what, though, with the uh lower price come for. But this is the box. It has all the features on the front gps, one key return, headless mode, um altitude hold hd camera and um speed control. Now this is the es520f and i think it’s the s because it’s 4k and the 520 isn’t – but it says it’s 4k we’ll – know for sure. Once we put the footage in the computer i’m, not so sure about that 4k, but um yeah, but that’s what’s on the box. That shows you what app you need to download and uh that’s the box. Okay! So getting to the drone, we got the ear. Sheen comes in as nice, hard uh protective cases, just not for decorations, it’s, a hard case opening the case. We got the foldable drone, it is affordable, drone, so it’s pretty compact. You can take it anywhere. You know what i’m saying you can pretty much. I can’t fit in my pockets, but some pretty much some cargo shorts or a coat jacket, pocket that fit easily um the wings fold right out, starting with the top first – and this is just a little it’s a they call it micro.
You know what i’m saying when i first got out, i felt like it was big, but this is pretty much the size of your hand. You know what i’m saying it’s a micro drone, gps um. It holds this location um. It has the hd camera on the front um you can’t control it from your phone or the controller. You have to adjust the camera before you take off um that’s, not so bad. If you know what you’re shooting at, if you know what you’re doing like i said, i got the the drone for photography and videography work. So a lot of times. I already knew what i was shooting so um two lights on the front. They really don’t make a difference. They really don’t do anything it’s pretty lightweight um it’s under 250 grams, so you don’t have to register it with the feds um and that’s. All i got about for the drone power buttons right here at the top. It takes a micro sd card at the bottom. I don’t know the capacity i put a 32 uh gig micro sd card in here had no issue. Battery goes right here in the back, and i got about a good 20 minutes of flying time about good 18 to 20 minutes of flight time on a full charge with two batteries you could have got a good, almost a good, a good 40 minutes almost so I never had an issue with flying time.
I was never out flying. It was like man i’m out of battery, and i want to fly some more um, basically, i’m um. Moving on from this drone, basically is because it’s a great starter drone, but for what i need it for um. I just need some more. I need a gamble. I need image, stabilization and, and that didn’t give me this, and i didn’t get that with this, but should you buy this drone? I say yes. If this is your first drone, if you’re getting your feet, wet and drone period, if you’re getting your feet wet in drone photography and drawing videography, this would be a great starter drone. One of the cons with flying this drone is that you have to fly it in perfect condition. Well, you don’t have to fly in a perfect condition because it holds us on in the wind i’m gon na win this in a windy city. It holds us on it. It kind of tried to take off on me in the wind a couple times: i’ll try to throw some video of that and um. If you want to see more of my videos, just leave a comment, description but um for the price. As an entry level drone, i say yes buy this for for, if you’re trying to do any type of content creation. With this drone, i would just suggest in the perfect weather conditions – zero wind, 100 bright skies. You can get some beautiful footage with this um it’s it’s it’s advertised as a kid drone, but i took this joint 80 feet in the air.
So if that’s, what the kids are doing nowadays it’s a kid drone, it says 14 and up so um. I definitely this is definitely a drone i recommend for for adults and any um older kids, um it’s, definitely definitely worth the money and, and it, and even if you don’t have any previous knowledge in flying drones is, is one of them drones. Where you got the simple, take off and land button, so that’s pretty simple um it comes with these wing guards. The wing guards are just to protect the propellers where i should have had on it. You know i’m saying practice before for when you hit uh. Well, you shouldn’t hit anything, but in case you hit anything crash landing. This is just for some to help the propellers, this just clips right on the bottom of each wing and and that’s that’s pretty dope to include with it, i would say, to to to throw in free, but i feel like you paid for all that, like i Said it comes with the extra battery and we’re gon na look at the controller before we get out of here, so we got the two joysticks. You know what i’m saying control your altitude in your direction, auto takeoff, auto land, um, auto, stop return to home. You got your record button right here. You got your camera button and um you got an orbit mode. You know what i’m saying for uh videos, you know what i’m saying just cool effects.
The the drone just fly around you in the orbit. These are antennas, are purely decoration, there’s, no um, cord and antennas having these up won’t increase your altitude or how far it goes in any way, shape, form or fashion. Um. Here is the phone holder. Now the phone holder um. I have a galaxy note, so my pop phone pop that did pop out quite a few times um, but i wonder if that’s the note is pretty is a preset, a pretty decent sized phone but other than that um the fpv worked. Fine, you will lose connection about after about a day about and that at about 50 feet of altitude uh, i would start to get choppy lose connection. It would freeze up the apple freeze up but um, like i said well, like you know, you get what you pay for so as an entry level drone. Should you buy this drone? Yes, should you buy this for your teenage kid son? Yes, should you buy this for videography and photography work? No, should you buy this to train or to get ready to do video and photography work with a more expensive drone, with a dji with a holy stone, or something like that? Yes um, but is it? Is it? Is it a good value? Yes, it’s, a great value, it’s, a great drone um. If you want to know the story behind why i am returning this drone and why i have um chosen to upgrade to the holy stone 720e with the sony, camera filter and electronic stabilization leave a comment and maybe i’ll drop, that video coming up soon.
So um thanks for tuning in make sure you check out the 290 more podcast we ain’t got else to do. This was my review of the iashin 520s um yeah.
