I got some a few gps drones. I wanted to show you guys – and this is one of them – i’ve been holding this back for a minute, for you guys been anxious to show it to you. This is the tg vizio xs818. Okay, let me say that one more time for you guys the tg vizio xs818, guys all right now. This would be a real budget friendly, affordable, gps drone. You know what i’m saying know how i am guys i like to find good budget affordable stuff, for you guys, test it and see if it’s worth your money. You know what i’m saying before you go out and spend your money i’m gon na try to get you guys, the best bang for your buck and let you know hey, is it worth it or not? Is it hot or not, and you guys leave me a comment below now, i’m gon na try to get this guy charged up depending on how long they’re going to take to charge these batteries. I know nothing of how long it’s going to take to charge this guy or nothing but let’s get into this man. This is the xs818 all right. So yes does have gps, gps positioning return, 4k, hd, camera optical flow, double cameras, uh adjustment, i mean you can adjust the little camera on there. It does not have a gimbal, though all right 5g means you have to have the 802 wifi guys so check the specs on your phone make sure you got the 802, the 5g wi fi for this guy all right now.
It says it has gestures. All that look at that there’s a remote right there, looking pretty cool. This is the brown box. That comes in not sure if it comes with a carrying case or not. I can’t remember. I have not opened this yet, but we’re going to get this boy out. The binocs and get to the nitty gritty, as you can tell it’s foldable here it is folded right. There looks pretty good there. It is unfolded now for the price. I think this guy was like 100 bucks, but then i got a coupon code with it. So when i got the coupon thing it was like, i don’t know like 70 dollars. You know what i’m saying so with this thing, that doesn’t say if you don’t get it with the coupon on sale like i did. You’Re gon na play around about run about a hundred bucks or so for this guy, and this is the the the zen mini guys. You know what i’m saying i think this guy has a bigger brother. He has a bigger brother, bigger brother with brussels motors and all that stuff. This is the smaller brother all right. This is the zen mini the x s. 8. 1. 8.. Let me make sure i’m not cutting up my box. You know i’m saying trying to get this boy out the box. I don’t want to cut up nothing. You know get this boy out. The box Applause be very careful.
Like i don’t cut out my so yeah it does come with the case. That’S pretty nice. You guys know how i feel about cases all these cheaper companies are seeing what seeming to be able to do it. I don’t know why a lot of these more expensive companies, can’t uh, already sell theirs, but no case without having to uh sell a more fly. More bundle type of deal type things these other special companies want to spend the extra buck for you to get a case of some extra batteries and the cheaper companies just be giving it to you right off the jump, jump but yeah yeah, so here’s the case For it real nice case, i love it. Eleven coming in case has a nice handle right. There zipper you know, let’s get to it. Let’S get to it, see we got up in here nice man. This thing looks nice. We got some stuff up here. This thing looks pretty dope man, i think those are brush motors, but it looks like they’re brushes. This thing looks pretty dope from the first glance before we get to the drone and all that let’s see what we got up here. So we got a goodie back with a let’s, see we got this goodie back here that we got goody goody, got it good. Of course we have some prop stars here. If you are a beginner and you’re new to flying you, might you want to try to fly this guy indoors or something without the gps? Definitely put your prop guards on so here’s the prop guards for proper hours.
They give you which i’m probably gon na, never use but here’s the prop guards: um charger standard micro, usb to usb that’s, probably gon na charge your batteries um. What else we got in here, two spare propellers, two spare propellers there. There we go. You set it to and then a phillips screwdriver remaining left in the back. So that’s what you get you get in your goodie bags. You get two spare parts: phillips, screwdrivers, um, four prop cards and charger all right, so that’s the contents of the goodie bag see what else we got here up top. This is our instruction manual. I have to dig that up out of there and i’m thinking that they say there’s no sd card slot, i don’t believe – and the range with this guy is about 300 meters. So you’re not going to be going no tremendous amount of range with this guy, but for the price point i think this should be a good one for beginners beginners, doesn’t beginners don’t need to be going too too crazy amount of ranges out too far anyway. So here’s, our just instruction manual, looks like it’s, pretty well laid out it’s going up everything it’s pretty well laid out so that’s that all right so there’s nothing else up. There let’s go ahead and check out the controller visio right there on the top of the controller, as you can see, of course, it’s going to be altitude hold, because this is a gps.
Quadcopter. Look like you have your return home button here, and this might be your headless mode button here. You have this mode button here turn on headless mode, like you got a compass calibrate calibration button here. This is all me guessing guys, uh power button here. If you got a photo button here, video button here you have rates or your speeds on a dial right. There says speeds if the camera would focus trying to get the camera to focus, see that says, speed right there and it says angle right there. So this is how you position the camera all right, pretty nice well laid out transmitter. We’Re, gon na need, of course, three or four double a batteries for the back. We’Ll confirm that when we get out for the flight here’s our phone holder, oh look at that. Even though a little nice little telemetry screen in there, i don’t even know that that’s a bonus. So you can, when you fly without the app you can still get some telemetry back through the transmitter, that’s pretty cool, guys, i’m digging that nice. This guy looks pretty well laid out. This is your phone holder, of course, guys pretty well laid out now let’s go for the gusto, so i have, of course, the one battery version guys this guy was like, like i said, right around 100 bucks or so, and i got it with the coupon code And made it like 70, but look at that it’s actually a little bit bigger than i thought it would be.
I thought it was gon na from other reviews. It looks much much much smaller um and the bigger brother. I forget what the name of it is like the zen mini or something like that. The bigger brother, the battery goes in up top just when the battery goes in in the rear, and these look like these look like brushless motors, but they’re they’re brushed they’re brush motors guys, but this guy looks really well really male made for the price point. I’M. Pretty happy with it, look at that how it folds out almost reminds me of my b strong, my sg 906. Look at that folds out really well i’m, pretty impressed it’s plastic, but it’s like really good quality made plastic guys. So, of course, it’s got that staggered leg, design that all these photos be having, where the top are a little bit higher than the rear legs, to give it that foldable design here it is zen mini guys check it out. The zen mini bye, bye, bye. All up in your face, all up in your fitness check it out, has nice foldable props on there brushless motor, not brushes i’m. Sorry brush motors. Have these uh protruded landing gear up front just like all the voters have like uh, looks like a baby xeno or something like that. You know i’m saying here it is man like i said right around 100 bucks. This is a good price point now, of course, these are proprietary batteries.
I believe so you’re going to have to um get the batteries from them, and i think i just switched it to oh and that’s the on and off switch that i just did and obviously there’s no power in there. Oh here’s, the optical flow underneath and this it says, there’s a sd card slot right there, but nope that’s. Where? Because you can see you cannotice the ribbon to the optical flow camera here underneath so you know, you can’t put a sd card in there. There’S no sd card slot here’s an optical flow sensor underneath landing gear open it here open the battery is what it says. Oh yeah really sure how you open the battery. You just pull out. How do you open i’m? Not really sure how you open this guy? It seemed like it’s pretty well stuck in there. I don’t want to break anything off the jump, jump she’s in there pretty she’s in there pretty tight, guys, huh yeah. I have to go over the instruction manuals and figure out how to open that battery. Oh there’s, the on and off switch huh. Look at that. Our mouse switch is on the top so to open the battery you’ll have to uh. Do that all right? You have to release this little lever is a locking mechanism right here. I didn’t know that. So i hit that little lockup mega mechanism and it releases the battery guys and here’s our battery 3.
7 volt 1800 milliamp hour battery bang it’s a little brick it’s, a little brick in there, so yeah we’re gon na get that charged up and it actually locks in Place and then it won’t come out so that’s a pretty cool feature right there that how it locks in place right there, all right so yeah, you see as soon as i turned up that guy on it. The camera kind of like moved up and down. Did you see that i don’t know if it’s going to do it again, it’s not doing it now? Oh yeah, this is in mini guys there. It is it’s supposed to be a 4k camera there’s, a good quick look at the lens there. So we’ll see what it do. Man then mini all right. Get this guy out for a flight. Get the batteries charged up, see you guys out in the field. All right guys be back all right, guys! Welcome back! So we are outdoors with the zen mini here. We’Re gon na go for our maiden flight with it my first flight with it, and i want to go over a couple of things. I was looking inside the app and it says a couple things inside the app. It said this guy has uh image stabilization. I didn’t see i didn’t say that on the box i was going over the settings i’m, not sure if you can see it here on my phone i’ll try to make sure you can see it.
Um says 4k correction. I turned that on and i turned stabilization on so when i switched it to english. Of course it was in chinese, so i just wanted to show you guys that really quickly, but uh yeah. So it says it has image stabilization we’re, going to check that out here inside this app. The app is the fpv go app it’s a h, fun type of app so yeah. I just wanted to show you guys that so um let’s go ahead and get this guy all set up we’re going to take off inside the handicap guy here and see how close a return home we get. Now. I only have one battery, so i don’t think i’m going to be able to test out all the flight features of this guy, but we’ll see what we can do here, guys we’re just going to basically just test out the flight performance see how it performs and Then we’ll come back on a different date and test out test out the flight feed flight features. It does have leds on the motor pods green in the front red in the rear, let’s go ahead and turn on this tx let’s do a up down that should bind us. I think both sticks, both joysticks down into the uh right, is the calibration for the um level calibration anyways gyro calibration. I think, it’s, what it says there we go. Yeah, you see the lights flash, the controller beeps letting you know you just did a gyro calibration and then we need to do a conference calibration and to do a compass calibration.
This simple, just press this button or maybe hold it or short press it. I’M. Sorry short press it and now it’s, asking us for a compass calibration and we’re gon na. Do that so let’s go ahead and do this three times around and it beeped and let’s go ahead and turn it up three times around so i’m, not sure we got ta. Let me see, try it again. All right then let’s try to do this. You know all these gps runs. Do it differently now, do we got it? I think we got a. I think we got a lock. I think we got a lot guys yeah, so we already got six satellites going down currently so let’s go ahead and click connect to the wi fi this. This drone here, my maiden flight guys my first time doing everything right in front of you guys and i wanted to do it in front of you guys, letting you know hey i’m doing it as i as i go, it’s the m8 5g 4k we’re connected to That so let’s get into the fbv, go app all right. Let’S click start flight and we do have some telemetry inside the transmitter. Here we got 11 satellites so far clicking on starting flight. Can we start click on next? Please take care of safety. Keep this submit. All right look, you can zoom in it looks like. Ah, so let me scroll up the angle of my camera.
My cameras is look like it’s angled, all the way down yeah. Let me i got connection to the camera. Nice got 14 satellites. I think you need at least nine to take off so let’s see if we can start the recording recording started from the transmitter, so it looks like we can take off with this guy let’s go ahead and just do it down and in and lift up. I want to let her hover there for a second nice i’m, not touching anything. This is brush motors and you can hear the wind here guys. You can hear the wind a little bit, not super duper windy, but it’s a little breezy and check it out. Look like it’s hovering, pretty fine looks like it’s hovering pretty good there. I can scroll up and down my camera. If i want to that’s going up let’s see there we go there, we go. I got the camera up a little bit. I don’t want to have the props in the shot. Let’S go to just take all this here. It says it has 300 meters of range and she’s holding pretty good, not sure about my rate. Just it says we have speeds right here: two beats but that’s our high rates, we’re gon na, be in our high rate right now, let’s go out and see how far we can go out. She did pick up in a little speed, didn’t she. So we do got telemetry on a transmitter too as well, that is nice, says we’re 30 meters out i’m gon na go up a little bit in height, so i’m about 20 meters up 21 meters up in height 50, 60 meters out just going out now do Notice some jello on a camera.
I do notice some jello, but hey you got ta think at a price for it. Let me up that camera a little bit all right, all right, i’m, 130 meters out guys no breakups, yet 200 meters out geomatic i’m gon na. Please leave the source of interference. Let’S keep going so two, almost 300 meters out that’s her right i’m 300 and what 40 meters out and i still got connection let’s keep going it. It only said it had 300 meters. I believe let’s go up a little bit about 30 we’re about 30 meters up and she put the camera down a little bit, so i can see kind of where i’m at there we go here with like 32 meters up and i still got wow guys. I’M. 442 meters, out from the little uh the little guy and i still got connection wow i’m, pretty impressed guys – i paid less than 100 bucks for this guy now. I’Ll be honest. The camera quality is not the greatest it’s, not the greatest camera quality but uh at 444 meters, and it only boasted 300 meter range and i’m still out, and i still got control and remember: there’s no sd card, so you’re, seeing directly as it gets as it Comes back to my phone i went out like oh, she went out a lot now where you going baby, i lost now. I lost my feed and it’s going out a lot. Come back, come back i’m pulling back on it, trying to get my feedback.
I’M. 484 meters out i’m gon na hit 487 meters out i’m gon na hit return to home. I lost my there. We go. I got my feedback, i said i went almost almost 500 meters out. I was like 487 meters out guys, which is pretty impressive. I should have did a screen recording, but from 487 meters out let’s see how close and we took off from inside the handicap. Guy let’s see how close of a return to home she does i’m pretty impressed guys. I think i paid like what 70 bucks for this guy and she’s coming. I think i’ll see her. I see her here. She comes she’s like a little black dot over there. Here she goes there. She goes coming back nice and smooth. Look at that. Coming on back to daddy wow that’s, pretty good guys i’m, pretty impressed with that so i’m, not touching anything we’re doing a return to home with the vizio xs818 guys, your boy drones and dolls yeah man put that camera up a little bit. Wow she’s she’s, coming on home i’m, just going to let her land. I want to see how close she lands getting a little a little choppy up there. How close she lands to the handicapped guy and she was coming pretty close. You remember how close to bugs five lin landed to the handicap. Got she’s gon na she’s gon na come close i’m gon na make sure that camera’s always up when she lands.
Though, look at that here she goes. She took off from inside the handicapped, guy wow, now that’s impressive, guys for less than 100 bucks. I’Ll pay. For this guy look at this, this is where we took off from that’s, where she landed i’m, pretty impressed with that let’s. Stop the recording, stop the recording right there. I want to go ahead and just take off. We still got battery life. I want to just take off again we’ll: do import i’m pretty impressed so far for the price point let’s, take it up and let her hover there for the price point i’m. Pretty impressed let’s get a close look at it right there. The zen mini bang rocking with your boy draw with his dog whoa. She got a little funky there. I think the wind buffered it there i’m, not touching anything yeah man, so i haven’t taken any photos. Yet bring it down right here. This is me right here and let’s take a photo. It says low battery. Now it took a photo so we’re in low battery warning yeah. We are in low battery one bar left i’m, starting the recording. How do i look on the camera guys? How do i look your boy, drones and dogs, so this is supposed to be its 4k camera with uh stabilization and all that, but right now, on my phone, everything looks all wobbly, so i don’t know how it’s going to look to you guys but yeah.
This is what it is: go ahead, stop that we’re, recording and we’re gon na just land this girl. Now there is no land button, so i think you just have to bring it home when you landed just have to bring it arm down and do it down and out manually landing it if i hold the motor, if i hold it all the way down, if You hold the throttle all the way down. It will shut it off i’m, pretty impressed for the price price point of this little thing, guys how it performs. Now i haven’t tested any other app functions and stuff like that, like the follow me and the waypoints and all that stuff, but it did an impressive return to home. It went out almost 500 meters when it only said it had a 300 meter range there’s, no wi fi. I mean there’s no sd card in here, and it still was able to keep up pretty good, almost out to 500 meters, guys 487 meters. It went out before i lost my connection, that’s, pretty good for just a wi fi based drone, though so this is the uh video guys, x8. Ss818. The zen mini appreciate you guys for rocking with me. I’M, your boys around the dogs. If you like these reviews, if you appreciate my channel, i appreciate you guys would like this video subscribe.
