This Top Drone is perfect for training first-time flyers and more advanced students alike The Force1 UDI Drone is an awesome and now even cheaper piece of kit. But it’s still full of top specifications that you would normally only ever see on the more expensive drones well above the $500 mark.
It is certainly for drone enthusiasts and beginners alike because there is so much more to this drone than the price alone, so don’t let that put you off. The price was pretty good, to begin with, but it now been slashed to a very reasonable price $99.99! and it comes made up and
ready to fly (RTF) straight from the box. It also includes the controller, a VR headset, 2 batteries, USB battery charger and an SD card reader along with a 4gb SD card but hold your horses, before you get your hands on the controller check the batteries and charge them fully before you get going. While the batteries are charging take your time and read through the manual and familiarize yourself with the controller to see exactly what they do.
Secondly, check with the FAA on the rules regarding registration because they have been going backward’s and forwards for over a year now debating the question of how to regulate Drone Fliers, especially the difference between hobby from fliers and commercial drone pilots. I understand that as of now all drone owners must register their drone online directly with the FAA. You can get their link here!
Features: The Force1 UDI U818A Drone has a good enough little camera which is a 720p 2MP HD camera, this can live stream images or videos direct to your smartphone or tablet. The drone itself is an FPV (First person view) and VR (virtual reality) compatible, which allows you to view your flight in the first person mode with the help of the drone’s self-generated Wi-Fi signal. It also comes preset with altitude control and custom flight path software which allows you to chart out the route
on your phone using a special app. The drone can be fixed at a particular altitude, following its preset coordinates.
This drone is also fitted with the Headless Mode (the pilot can fly the drone without worrying about which way the drone of facing if he wants it to go forwards it will do so even if it’s facing the wrong way).
The Batteries when fully charged should provide the drone with between 7 to 12 minutes, although if you are streaming videos back to your tablet etc it will reduce the flying time. The range of the drone from the controller is around 328 feet.
The Drone comes with a 4GB SD card although you can upgrade that to a 16GB SD Card later if you wish to.
Advantages: There are so many advantages that come with this package but I will list the main ones.
1. The one button landing or take off feature instantly removes one of the main concerns that a new pilot worries about is this problem so this feature will remove this by getting him in the air as quick as the possible negating the possibility of crashing the drone while either taking off or landing the drone.
2. The First Person View facility is another unique feature that is rarely found on other drones in this price range. Another feature built in is that of the drone flies out of range, it will gradually descend till it lands, unlike some other drones that go crazy. Especially with the goggles and a decent Camera.
3. The custom flight path allows you to chart out a route using your own smartphone or tablet which can allow the drone to fly unassisted once it is airborne and following your preset route.
4. The altitude control is another very useful feature, allowing you to control the maximum height that your drone should reach which could prevent your drone from flying over fences, buildings or generally out of bounds that you have set.
Disadvantages: The Drone is quite light weighing in at only 2.9 pounds, and while this can sometimes be an advantage, it can also leave it susceptible to suffering if you are trying to fly in anything above a light wind speed. It could also allow it to be damaged more easily in the event of a slight accident.
The VR streaming, while being a cool feature to have, can lag and stutter at times.
Plus the camera could have done with a little better because having only a 2MO resolution at the moment leaves the picture quality a little low. It can only shoot or stream videos at a max of 30fps, which in today’s world is quite inadequate.
Verdict: For drone for enthusiasts and beginners, the Force1 UDI U818A Quadcopter Drone is highly recommended as a very reasonably priced drone especially when offered at $99.99. It comes with some very unique features like the VR streaming and easy to use functions like the one button landing and take off. But if you are wanting better image quality or videos, or even a drone that is built with more sturdy materials to prevent it being damaged too easily, or a drone which can tolerate higher wind speeds then, unfortunately, you are going to have to look at the more expensive options. Meanwhile, this drone is a great initial trainer that will get any youngster off the ground safely using the one-key lift off and landing, through in the Altitude cap and that’s as safe as you can make it for anyone.
