I uh, i got a new drone and i just got it maybe 10 minutes ago, uh it’s made by now. This is what i found it under in uh amazon. I got this on amazon for it’s like 49.99 and it had like a five or ten percent discount. If you check in the little square the little box um, so it was under 50 bucks um. I i liked it for the size for 50 bucks. I mean it seems like it’s, a pretty decent size compared to the 20 or 30 dollar ones which are kind of smaller um, so it’s a lbla that’s, what it the name of it under amazon is called um. You know it’s kind of a funny name, but whatever and uh it’s a s5 drone, maybe that’s the model in the front of the box. It says three speed shift, so it must have three modes indoor and outdoor flying. So this guy does do 360 flips and rolls altitude hold gravity sensor. Some must have a gyro uh one key take off and landing 2.4 gigahertz radio control and it comes with a hd camera. So that’s a nice feature for 50 bucks. So it says: 14 plus band 2.4 gigahertz power, 100 mw, side of the box, and no, i did not open it. Yet these were open. This one was kind of peeled away, but i stuck it back on uh let’s, see here: manufacturer hunga, dot, toys, factory, okay, um, you can’t fly it if you’re from zero to three.
So there isn’t much on the box, as you can see, it’s pretty basic, so let’s open this up and see what we find. Hopefully you guys can see. Oh wow, i like the packaging. Okay, underneath i found some stuff, looks like a cell phone holder, two propellers and a screwdriver and a small charging wire nice, oh and it’s, one of those charging wires it’s got the led inside of it. It looks like it could be wrong, but that’s. Just a quick guess so here’s the drone and the remote the remote looks like a really good size. I like it, the drone is bigger than than i thought it was going to be. So i like that. Okay, these are the wing, protectors and landing gear, so it looks like there’s a little hole. Maybe a screw goes there we’ll look into that in a little bit, here’s the remote control. It feels very light and plasticky that’s okay, as long as it does the job i’m. Okay with that – and these are uh – these are nice because they go back to center by themselves. I like that kind of control, so that’s, very nice. It seems like every button has a function: cool set that aside Applause here’s, the drone it’s got a little camera and it has an on off switch on. The bottom looks like a little antenna feels very plastic plastic like but that’s, okay, okay. So what i’m going to do is read this guy a little bit see how to put these braid blade protectors on and the landing gear on, maybe it’s just a push style.
I don’t, i don’t know if i saw any screws in this little bag. Let’S see what’s in here real quick Applause, so the two propellers charging wire cell phone holder it’s got a little adjustment screw and i’m thinking. It goes like this let’s see here there we go just pop that on there put your cell phone on there. It opens up pretty good. These propellers are flexible, so they might take a good hit here and there a screwdriver – and this looks like a cap for one of those put this on here, so i don’t lose it right away and guess what little screws? Okay, so uh again, i’m gon na read through this uh quickly and maybe point some stuff out before i go further. So give me a minute and i’ll be right back okay, so i kind of read through it a little bit. A couple things i want to point out, and one of them is, is the battery size and voltage? Hopefully, you guys can see that it’s, a 3.7 volt 550 milliamp battery now it’s not the biggest battery, but reading through the manual. I did see that it’s a lipo so it’s a very good battery, so flight time, 60 minutes so i’m, not surprised, oop! Sorry! Here it is again just telling you to be careful with the lucian polymer battery and some of the key features that i wanted to point out on the remote. Is there a speed, switch there’s, a speed, switch on the remote emergency? Stop and, like i said, every button seems to have a function and it does so here’s the 3d flip button and uh.
This remote does take double a’s and it takes four of them. So that’s good to know – and this just shows you the steps you got to take to put the landing gear on. I always recommend that you read through the manual before uh flying so and it does come with an app that you have to download and we’re gon na. Do that and we’re gon na see how that works, so very cool, so let’s keep going i’m gon na. Put this landing gear on where’s it right here, so it goes like so just like that, whatever you notice that there is oh, never mind like that and like that, so let’s open this up, they all seem to be the same size. Man. These screws are small. Okay, so i’ll be back i’m, going to put i’m going to put these screws through the hole before i install them, but you get the idea. I’M. Just uh i’ll try my best here with these tiny screws. I mean these guys are tiny. As you can see, it is not playing with it’s not trying to be nice to me. There. You go so i’m just going to pop one in just to kind of show you guys and, as you can see, it’s very plasticky, it’s kind of flexible, the drone kind of flexes but uh. If it does fly and it does uh if the camera works. The way it should i don’t uh, i don’t see why that’s a bad thing.
Okay, so i got the landing gear on and i’m putting on the last uh propeller guard and uh. These are not the thickest of material, so you kind of have to play with them to get them to go into place. I’Ll try my best to do this in a timely manner, but, like i said, these screws are tiny, try a different screw here. So how’s everybody doing i uh i’m in illinois, i’m sure i mentioned it many times and we are going through some very hot humid weather. So there we go so it seems like they give you some extra screws, that’s good. One thing i did notice is that uh i was trying to hide that is that the battery doesn’t come plugged, so you’ll see that there’s a little open and closed arrow, so you would open it. Here’S the battery there’s, a plugger here’s the size of the battery. Now the battery says 3.7 volt 550 milliamp very nice, and it is a lipo, so be very careful with these guys, let’s plug her in it’s a tight little spot in there right don’t do what i did there. We go, and this looks like it locks into that there we go it’s on there here’s the little camera, so it was up and down i’m gon na leave it right there. So let’s plug this in the charger. Let’S see what happens here from what the manual said is that uh, when the this does light up and when the battery is charging it lights up red, so let’s see here i’m.
Taking this guy out, let’s see what happens. Okay, so at the battery uh are the light indicators off the light charging indicator so let’s see if it lights up when the battery is charging, so i didn’t really read through the manual as much as i should have so it looks like you charge it through. The battery that can’t be right yeah, so you charge the battery like so okay and while that’s charging i’m gon na put some batteries in the remote i’ve got some batteries here. Thank you, energizer. So i took the screw out. Looks like there’s two arrows going down there. We go four double a’s, so i heard a beep. I heard another beep there’s a little led in there. Blinking red turn that off and again this is a good size. Remote i mean it. It feels good in the hand, but again it does feel very thin in plastic plasticky, whatever you want to call it so all right, so the battery’s charging um we’re gon na. Let that charge a little bit and we’ll be back. It is 259, so it’s been over an hour and the battery is charged. The indicator is off, so that means it’s done charging so let’s pop this in. Let me go this way, maybe plug this in first, so you go down and then forward to close. So, okay, so what they want you to do so first thing, i’m going to do is uh.
First thing i want to do is show you guys the size of this thing in case uh in case you guys are interested in it. Let me try to adjust the uh, the angle of the camera, but in case you guys are interested in it. You know if you want to get it for yourself or as a present for someone else. Let me do a comparison compared to something else. So uh let’s see here so this is my dwi cool led drone. I made a video on this guy it’s in my it’s in my videos, so compared to that you can see it’s a little bigger okay, so the next biggest one i have is my bugs to drone, and my bugs too, is just slightly bigger. As far as the wingspan and uh the body, the length of the body is pretty much the same and the heights uh again. This is a sitting on the motors on the bottom of the motors, on the bugs and on the new drone. Here it’s got its own little stand that it sits on and uh they’re pretty much the same. So that gives you an idea, oh the size of this guy and uh. As far as the propellers go, the bugs propellers are they’re definitely longer and as far as i can tell they’re about a half inch longer, if not more, on each side, so maybe an inch longer total compared to the the new drone here and uh and the Weight of the bugs too, is so much more it uh it’s at least twice as much as this guy.
So when you pick this up, i mean you can feel that the plastics are real, solid uh. It feels like a real piece of quality uh. I guess drone um, some people, you know think of this as a very low quality drone, but i like it for the price i think it’s a it’s, a good drone. So put this guy back and again we’re going to fly this without the app and see how it does and then we’re gon na try to use the app and see how that does so so we’re gon na make sure see. I thought i had that closed, but it it is not there we go that’s a lot better, so we are going to turn the drone on there’s, a small switch on the bottom here, that’s. What they want you to do, first, cool and then they want you to turn on the or the remote control, so that’s flashing faster and then what they want you to do is go up down and that should be paired with the uh with the drone. So i don’t know how this is gon na go uh. This is new to me, so we’ll find out so we’re gon na go up. That did nothing. Okay, so i see it. I forgot what these buttons do, but we’ll figure this out together right, oh wow, that was very easy, so i’m trying to land it there we go so this button right here is what i pressed this up and down arrow button.
It shot up very stable. I pressed it again to land it very, stable, okay, Music, wow Applause, okay, okay, so i oh so i’m trying to land this just by holding it down like some of the uh other drones that i have it’s, not letting me Applause. So i pressed the button. It tried to land itself as you can see, but it was like tipping back and forth so this this one rotor here propeller was still spinning trying to adjust for it, but it does have a stop button that stops it completely and uh yeah. So again, uh let’s take off we’re gon na try to land it manually Music, so the drone is on is on play, see here, camera off on. Okay guys. I have tried to read this manual to get that app to work where i can use the camera, but for me i couldn’t get it uh. I would get like maybe 15 seconds where it would stream something to the phone and it would just stop so i’m. Not sure if it was because it was an uh apple phone or you know, or whatever the case may be, but for me i couldn’t get the app to work with the drone and my phone, so i can get first person view out of it. So that’s kind of a bummer, because i think that it flies very well for what it is um again: that’s, that’s, okay, it’s kind of a personal preference type of thing.
You know if you like flying drones with the remote and didn’t really care about the fpv feature. Well, you might overlook that and think that that’s okay. But for me, if i buy something – and it says that you know it has an app and that you should see uh fpv out of it and uh, you know whatever else features it it does, it should do them and it doesn’t i’m kind of disappointed. So do i recommend this? I mean it flies very stable it’s got power, but uh. The features that you can’t use, uh kind of, makes me upset. I was kind of looking forward to uh just getting a first person view out of this little camera here and seeing how far that view would go, but that uh that wasn’t the case so um what i’m gon na do next is maybe take it outside see. How it does outside uh, just so, you guys can see it fly outside, but as far as the app working with this drone with my phone again, it could just be my phone. You could have this drone and it works perfect with your phone, but as far as my phone goes, it did not want to work with this uh drone at all so um. I can’t recommend it. You know that’s, probably not the uh, not what many companies want. People to say – and i i wasn’t given this – i bought this with my own money and if a product is going to, you know say that their product does something it should do it.
Okay, we’re upstairs now it is a windy day outside so we’re gon na. Try to fly this outside so it’s, paired and let’s give this the and that’s it’s on the low setting right now. Oh two: okay, it’s on the fastest setting Music and, like i said it is windy outside so and uh. Another thing i brought up is that this guy is very light. I mean super light, so if there’s, any kind of wind outside you’re gon na have a a fun time trying to control this thing uh. I guess this is more of a indoor or very light. Wind condition day type of drone, as you saw, i tried to take off and maybe just stay stable and it wasn’t having it so very beginner. I would definitely stay indoor and or a very calm outside today, so let’s try it again, probably end up losing it. Okay, just gave it a little bit of trim and, as you can see, it’s not having it it’s not having it. So again, i uh let’s turn this off. I tried using the app with it. It didn’t work with my phone that me they. That may just be the case why it didn’t work with you know, because it was my phone or whatever the case may be, but i couldn’t get that to work with the drone and uh. I don’t like that. Yeah it uh if a company’s gon na say that their product does certain things, it should do them uh.
Does it fly stable, indoors, absolutely uh, but you do need some space to fly this indoors. This is kind of big. You know you try to do a flip indoors. It uh more than likely you’re gon na hit the ceiling unless you got uh vaulted ceilings in your house, so uh so there’s, two, two big, no no’s. You know, at least for me, uh and the price 50 bucks that’s that’s uh for me, that’s that’s, a nice present for someone, you know and and uh and if i’m, giving this to somebody and they’re trying to use it and it’s taken them, uh a while To figure out how to use it, i mean there goes. There goes some of the fun away. You know you’re more or less starting to get you’re starting to get a little upset of trying to figure it out and taking that fun away. So do i recommend this? No, if you see this online uh i’d pass that’s, just my opinion uh, you may have a totally different opinion and uh. If you like it good for you but uh. I would skip on this guy, so yeah uh.
