Drones on the channel lately i’ll be honest, the dji fpv kind of stole the spotlight for a while and it’s time to take a look at some reasonably priced drones. You know the dji fpv, although it’s in a completely different category in a category of its own, really is thirteen hundred dollars, whereas this one is under 300, so you know it’s a very different type of drone, but this is a drone that appeals to more people. I think at least it should this – is a nice, 稳定, 全球定位系统, three axis camera drone, something that basically anybody can pick up and fly. I do not recommend that dji fpv for very many people. Now there are some bold claims on here: 4k camera five kilometer distance and here’s, the boldest claim of them all seafly. Your best drone company ever made no no they’re, not but they’re. Still in it. That says something and i’ve been told by a friend and fan of the channel, that this is a good drone as a matter of fact, that is why it’s on the channel so big, thank you to you know who you are sending it our way. We really appreciate it for some pretty blatant, brutal, honest testing that’s what this is about right, they’re off to a good start. 在我看来, because case i love a good case. I really do if a decent drone is going to be sold these days. Just put it in a case make us all happy.
I think we all deserve a nice case for our decent little drone. It comes with a usb charging bay style of charger, which is very slow, but i think that we’re, okay with that these days, here’s our drone now there’s a black version, a white version – and i think i like this bold bright orange as a third version. That’S really cool. We don’t see bright orange drones like that very often so good on them for that it’s, a nice brushless, folding arm camera drone and what we’re going to do today is test this thing i will tell you right up front super bold leave that c fly. I don’t think you’ve ever made a drone that we have been able to recommend to people. So this should be very interesting. Let’S fly all right, let’s uh let’s do the sea fly. This is where we should talk about ama insurance, 好的, let’s press take off and see what happens. Nothing i’ll hold it. 那里. We go shopping there. Ah it’s, 好的, 好吧! All right sea fly, you did a successful takeoff. You know i’m i’m, just having a little fun here, we’re joking a little bit, but they have traditionally not had amazing drones. But i have heard really good things about this. So fingers are crossed. We’Ve got probably a seven or eight mile an hour wind, fairly, constant off and on, i guess and it’s holding it’s holding really well. This is my usual hover test.
现在, when i look down at my camera, i can see clouds nothing but clouds. You see that abby we have a gimbal at the top right so i’m, going to hold that gimbal let’s see. If i can angle that camera down some it’s going yeah hang on that might just be the wind pushing the camera down, try the other driver. I have been yeah turn a little bit of both legs here guys. What we do on our channel is show you a true user’s interaction with drones, we’ve flown over a thousand drones on our channel, and so some things are more user friendly than others. As you can see, our camera gimbal is. The angle is not able to be adjusted so what’s this up and down arrow. I read the instructions and it said that little knob knob was well here. I’Ll show you this bob right here: yeah that’s, the knob for every camera, on a drone to be angled up and down so i’ll tell you what i want to do: let’s land it i’m, just going to press that auto, take off auto lan button, see if I can manually help that camera out just a little bit. We need that to angle down hello loud. I do not recommend doing what i just did. I manually helped the camera come down some so we’re going to try to take off again here. So the gimbal didn’t work so yeah. I have no camera controls over that gimbal it’s not going up or down, and it should it definitely should.
Also i can tell you, the live camera feed, 呃, 我们, doing a screen recording you guys can see it too. 它. Very jittery it’s very choppy that’s, not like a smooth. 你知道的, uh even probably 20 每秒帧数, but okay being a little nitpicky let’s see if we can fly this thing and it do anything for us how’s the. How is the drone battery already at eighty percent? All we did was hover. 好的, there we go we’re flying for a drone with a gimbal that is pretty junk. That is not good, just probably because you just broke yeah i’ll. Tell you what it was. A very smooth press down. Oh sea fly, i’ll tell you what guys, just for the sake of the drone, because i know this is not now it’s flying great. I will say the drone itself is flying extremely well i’m, very impressed with that. It has a nice lock on satellites it’s using the visual position hold and sonar to help it hold that position, which is very awesome, but i want to restart everything from the ground up i’m, going to make sure there’s nothing obstructing that camera on takeoff i’ll set. It on the box to take off let’s give it another shot, because i think that could be a slightly unfair disadvantage to this drone. I want it to do well. I truly do so um let’s land, it look. 它! 看. I want you to see this.
I know you can hear that wind. We even have a dead cat on our mic, it’s very windy, so windy. I would even be hesitant to fly some airplanes in this amount of wind, so the drone itself is flying extremely well. Let’S get that camera to come in at a better angle, we’ll reset it all. After restarting everything it does. Look like the camera is sitting at a normal level. 角度, that’s a good thing. 所以, oh boy, this flies buzzing it’s like crazy up here. 好的, let’s do an auto takeoff. Here we go while i’m swatting away the flies here. 好的, that is better check out. The angle of the camera. See that abby much better let’s fly it out. 等待. Does your gimbal work, 嗯， 让我们, see up and down? 是, 好的! So i think that was just user error. We just let it take off from some grass it’s kind of a loud drone isn’t it it’s kind of like a vibrating noise. I think the props just are not balanced super great on this. You know um. Oh there we go let’s, see it’s telling us that our wi fi is not connected. So let’s use cellular data. 好的, all right let’s have a little fun. Now let’s fly this out a little higher, so we can track it above the tree line there and i’m. Just going to fly it because now it’s working extremely well, the gimbal is fairly smooth yeah.
It looks really good in comparison to what it looked like on our first takeoff and i’m very happy to report that, 答案是肯定的, i don’t want for something to not be good. You know there you go i’m flying up above the tree line a little bit more and at that range it uh. It still has a great signal, we’re at over 100 米, we’re at 115, now and that’s, usually a very good testing point for a drone under 300 雄鹿. 只是出于好奇, what do you remember how many meters or feet or whatever our old airfield was? Do you remember no, but we have to go back and watch an old video because i’m curious yeah, comparing it to up here, obviously up here, more more range, testing capabilities, right yeah, because look at that we still have line of sight really well we’re at 200 Meters out good for you, uh sea fly the faith too. You do have some like birds up there. Look at this now here too we’re, 250 meters and i’m just going to rotate it now because we’re getting a little bit choppy on the video signal. So i don’t want to go much farther 260 meters it’s choppy enough. That it’s definitely not a smooth flying experience. So i think that’s about you know. Maybe we could hit 300 或左右. But if you go much farther it’ll be out of line of sight a little farther yes now i can still see oh yeah.
I can see it just that’s fine, so let’s start to fly by if they can see it – 可能不是 – 可能不是, but i can see our car really well here so let’s i’m flying back full speed ahead, the battery’s at 60 guys this is the stuff that I like to test on our channel not necessarily range, but video signal, 质量, video camera quality because let’s face it, that’s why you buy a drone like this it’s cruising right along that’s, a good speed. You know there’s other things that these drones can do. There’S circle me functionalities built in and some other other uh nice things like follow me, but if a drone can’t perform at the most basic level like this, then we don’t even want to bother testing those things and i’m happy to report that this is flying extremely Well now so you know just start the drone on a very smooth surface now some drones don’t have to have that for takeoff, 好的, but this one does so let’s just cruise around a little bit and enjoy flying this. It feels good when flying the range is better than expected. I love that it folds and goes up in a case. The the controller itself feels good. The gimbal sticks on the remote feel nice and hobby grade. I like how the phone mounts in here too let’s show that i don’t have a plus size phone anymore, guys that’s the regular weapon.
Do i have eleven eleven? I guess i don’t know here’s a neat thing. It came with this bar. You can put the bar under the phone, so if you have a very small phone, this sits down there and that will hold it. I imagine that would help hold a tablet or something too. 我喜欢. I do i’m impressed with this c fly is finally in the drone game for good. 现在. The one thing i can say currently, because this drone is newer, you can only buy it on aliexpress yep that’s about how i feel too abby. We did not pass gas. That was a that’s, an emotion right there. You know we haven’t had good experiences on that website. So if it’s only available there, uh we’ll probably link a favorite alternative drone that does what this will do for a bit cheaper on another website that we trust more, if it’s only available on aliexpress. 现在, if we can find it on another website, we will have this linked for you. 换句话说, we don’t recommend shopping there, that’s cruising right along isn’t. It that’s a very nice drink, i’m kind of just flying at line of sight for that pass i’m enjoying flying a line of sight because it’s bright orange i’ve, never flown a bright orange, actually that’s, not true. We had a safety ted. I do it was just a toy, though this is nice. This is really nice i’m enjoying cruising here, let’s see if we can get a little shot of that pond.
You know that’s kind of what you do with a drone like this. You can really cruise around the live. Video feed is, is good i’ve been wondering if there’s a good path down into the pond go check it out. We want to kind of do some uh. If it can go, maybe some boats down there would be pretty cool. My i’m getting a little bit of latency on my camera. Gimbal like the up and down of it. 你知道的, 它, not smooth right now and i’ve stopped. Stop! Stop! Stop! 好的! 好的! Let’S fly a little higher we’ll check out the path like you said from the road. Can we get down there it’s a little choppy when people talk about a lumber shortage and we just kind of laugh. I don’t know about that’s why yeah there’s a lot over there isn’t it. You know you could build a whole city with that. I don’t know all these things. We try not to talk about the world on our channel because we only talk about fun, stuff right, 对, 好的, 风, nice view of the pond. That would be a good pond. I think for some rc boats it looks nice and cleaned up right around the edge we’ll have to check that out. A lot of gunk in the pond we’ll have to spray for ticks and watch for that kind of stuff, but we’ll see there’s our little road. That we take to get up here, look at that yeah top of the world here aren’t.
We it feels that way, especially when we’re flying our planes. Well guys, 我认为这是, probably about enough of the seaflood drone, at least for testing with the basic level. If there’s a really strong interest, i mean this video gets. You know a lot of views. A lot of feedback from you guys and you want to see more like circle me follow me those functions. We can test it but i’m happy to report that as long as you set this up the right way out of the box, it seems to fly really well it’s, not the best drone out there in the world, 但对于价格, and especially knowing that it’s Cfly yo they’re doing a pretty good job, yeah that’s uh what’s, your battery life at battery life currently is at 40, 好的, 那是, not too bad that’s, not too bad and actually guys we’re doing something a little bit unique with this drone uh, which you will probably Have already seen in the video just having a little fun and we wanted to save some battery life for that. So hopefully that worked out, because if it didn’t this won’t make any sense wow that was uh surprising. 你知道的, and really i can put a lot of that blame on the maiden flight on me, but i would not fly something like this with unknown. Potential potential is a good word, 我认为, without having ama insurance it’s the academy of model aeronautics, i just it’s like a security blanket.
It is a security blanket for me to get out here and fly something uh, especially maiden flight of something, but i i wouldn’t fly so much as a paper airplane or you know, fold a wad of paper and throw it at my kid or abby without paper. Rare stuff, these days, uh without having ama, so if you’re interested in having ama, 事实上, you should be interested in having ama i’ve flown things, basically my entire life, but almost daily for the last eight or nine years, and i have not done so without ama. I encourage you guys to be like nate from the rc sailors fly. Smart fly, 安全, don’t endanger anybody and, while you’re doing it use ama insurance now, so you get a nice magazine subscription really address yourself in third person. I did yes, 音乐. 我是. Pretty happy with that uh, but i have a challenge for c fly or maybe any other drone manufacturer up for the challenge back when we used to test like we really tested over a thousand drones, some have been deleted so yeah we deleted some just for youtube’s. Changing ever changing wondrous ways over the years, we’ve had to take a few videos down, but we’ve tested over a thousand drones and we used to test things that were like pterodactyl shaped, and you know, potato source spaceship shaped say that five times fast uh and maybe Not this is nice and bold orange but i’d like to see, 我认为, it’d be fun.
You know why. Why does everybody have to make it look like a mavic, you know or mavic ish. I know it works and stuff, but i’d like to see another brand. Like if you’re gon na buy a drone that’s, not a dji drone, just go out on a limb here, got on a ledge and and make it pterodactyl shaped. Do the same thing. This is doing it’s 200 300, but make it a crazy shape right. I think that’d be more fun, make it a good, functional drone, but a cool crazy shape too i’ve had some fun ideas over the years, 但嗯，是的, so there’s sonar on the bottom of this. A visual position hold camera. Really truly honestly sea fly. You done good, you surprised me um, i i had a bad start up, but i i can blame myself on that and i don’t see any reason really why to hate. On this too hard i mean i will say that i’ve tested some drones that are 200 and maybe a little bit under 200 bucks that are doing pretty much what this one does, but for a little bit more money you can have yourself a working c fly Drum and for that i give them two big thumbs up, because this is some serious progress by sea fly, at least in our opinions. You should look up all those other sea fly drones on our channel. There needed some work, but good job on cfly.
This will be linked in the description box below somewhere and if it’s, only available, as we said, while flying on aliexpress we’re going to link an alternative drone, because we do not really support. Aliexpress we’ve just had a bad experience. Many multiple bad experiences with them, which means we’re not going to have you guys, have those same experiences. I hope you understand and can appreciate that, and you know, having said that, you really should check out the description box because there might be a cheaper alternative down there for you. 所以, having said all that, i want to thank the big guy upstairs for this beautiful day location, to fly, to fly something like this and share the opportunity with you guys and pass on either savings – or maybe this is the drone you’ve been looking for. Maybe you love that bright, orange and you’re just excited to try something else and clearly, 如果你是, maybe maybe just if you’re new to the channel. You might be surprised by our transparency that we tell you, even though we got this for free from a friend and supporter of the channel, we’re extremely transparent. You know uh, let you know if it’s good bad, we said: 嘿, seafly you’ve never had a good drone before until now that’s because of our patreon supporters. We could not be so brutally honest without our patreon supporters, and so we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to do that and let the world know you know what really should be known: 它, not a commercial it’s, a truth, video right.
So to our patrons we say, 谢谢. We’Ll have another drone video that we absolutely love popping up right about now.
