If you are looking for an affordable, user-friendly, and with a first-person view mini quad, Rabing Mini Foldable RC Drone is a great one to have. This quadcopter has a camera and built-in M1 Wi-Fi. By downloading the app to your iOS or Android device, you will be able to control the drone with ease through your mobile phone.
With this reasonably priced drone, you can shoot crisp videos and images from up to 100 meters away from you, thanks to its 720p camera and 2.4 GHz remote control frequency. From simple or captivating scenery to pictures of your families and loved ones, you can be sure to capture quality photos and videos.
With the addition of the virtual reality (VR) feature, you can experience total immersion in terms of perspective depth of what this mini drone is able to capture while airborne.
As to be expected in most quality and affordable toy drones, Rabing’s mini remote-controlled drone is compact and lightweight, wherein you can fold the arms to the side of its body. This feature aids in easily storing the drone or just plain keeping it in your pocket.
In addition, the folded drone can be stored in the middle slot of the remote controller when not in use. With its size, you can also fly it indoors without too much risk of hurting people or destroying furniture.
The 3D rolling and headless mode features of this drone also make for an entertaining experience. The drone is able to do 360° rolls in the air and glide around in any direction without regard to alignment.
Setting up this drone is also super easy; you can fly it straight out of the box by just installing the batteries, without the need to fiddle with it. Coming with the box are extra mini propellers as well as propeller guards to protect them from damage during flight.
The drone also only charges for around 30 minutes, quite fast for most affordable mini quads. In addition, the presence of the one-key return makes the drone simple to use.
Despite having a storage slot in the remote controller, you will not be able to simultaneously charge and store it there since one of the propellers is locked while being charged from the cable inside the remote controller.
Another technical issue we found is that the drone is wobbly or difficult to maneuver when the propeller guards are not equipped. It is not much an issue since it is advisable to use these propeller guards when flying.
Another reviewer pointed out that the drone does not have an altitude hold mode while in flight. However, it is still easy to stabilize when taking pictures, despite the absence of this function.
The drone itself is somehow tricky to control at first, and this is because the names of the buttons are not printed on the controller. You most likely have to read the instructions on the controls first to learn how to fly the drone.
The Rabing’s mini foldable remote-controlled drone is an inexpensive way to try out first-person view flying. Unlike the Goolsky FQ17W mini drone, the Rabing Mini Foldable RC Drone captures clearer videos and images thanks to its built-in 720p camera.
The downside to this drone though, is that it does not have the altitude hold mode needed to stabilize the drone when taking photos and live-stream videos. Collectively, it is a great ready-to-fly drone for those starting enthusiasts in the world of hobby drones.
