Great review on the S500 Captain Drone
Good review captain drone as always.
How many sub 250g brushless/gps/camera drones are there out there?If this uses a generic 2s battery, weighs in at 290g, I could put a slightly smaller/lighter (say 40g lighter) generic 2s in that compartment (~2200ma) and make the 250g and go unregistered. I’d take the flight time reduction (prob not that much) for that. Is there any competition in the sub 250g brushless market?
Seems alittle over priced. There are better options at that price point.
It would probably lift a GoPro, like the bugs does, if it had a freshly charged battery but your flight time will be greatly reduced just like the bugs.
Hi Capt. I wonder if you had a battery that was fully charged, how would it preform.
that drone very COOL THANKS FOR VIDEO
Another great video Cap , it doesn't matter about the waypoints , nobody's perfect . I think you do a great job on your reviews , that's why I watch your channel and trust your opinion .. Have a great day . Mark G .
I first read it as "$500 Stealth GPS Camera Drone" and I was like what? That's only under $200 then I realised it was "S500" lol
What is 5ghz
Any one likes the world youtube land
The background says captain drone ON AIR
Several drones out there at this price point that raise that gopro nice honest review Captain ✌?
Stop pointing at me. 🙂
What is the actual flight time? In the video you flashed up 20mins but didn't specify if this is mfg stated flight time or actual flight time? I assume it was the mfg stated flight time because I saw another reviewer that stated the flight time was 12mins. As you know manufacturers frequently…shall we say EXAGGERATE…the flight times. Flight time is a key "purchase" criteria for me and I suspect many others. Is there any chance that you could include "Actual flight" time as a STANDARD part of your reviews? You frequently run these drones batteries down to low battery level..why not just include that in your summary description? …And yes I know that your actual flight time will vary depending on how you fly and the weather conditions but still it would be nice to include some quantitative indication of actual flight time….otherwise I have to search for another review that addresses this.Also it would nice if you included a short list (bullet list) of your key pros and cons in the description of the drone…You usually state them anyway somewhere in the video…so why not just add them in the description area. Here is why that would be useful. After watching your reviews I often need to go back to your reviews to compare different drones for making a purchase decision…and I don't have time to scan the entire video to look for key pro's and cons or key qualitative info about the drones. So having a summary would make that comparison INFINITELY more efficient for your reviewers. Also I wish all reviewers would include a "consumers report" style chart for each drone to allow consumers to easily compare drones (Feature list on left side and a qualitative "rating" (e.g., empty circle, half filled circled, fully filled circle, etc…you get the idea) and/or quantitative rating if appropriate (e.g., flight time). Of course the entertainment value of a review is important but getting a quick (easy accessible) list of the key pros and cons & key features for a drone without having to re-watch or scan a video is key for me and again I suspect for many other reviewers. These things would save me tons of times and would likely save you time because you might avoid answering the same question over and over again. Thoughts?
Guys, I'm a brazilian universitary and I'm making videos for my university, but I only have my cellphone and I'm needing help to get a cheap drone as spark, since in brazil they're not "cheap", pleeease help me!!
Captain please give me any gps drone please ???
Thanks for the nice review….Regular price on TomTop listed at $330!!!!! IMHO RIDICULOUS……but graciously on sale for $159. LOL! It seems they already included China tariff into the it's price. No thank you.
Why does this drone look familiar?
I really like the idea you can mount a GoPro to it, as long it is not a GoPro.
Video not bad at all
Maybe if you empty the SD card it will be lighter?
