Default This is the Best Beginner Drone I've found to replace the classic Syma X5c

Best video review of the Snaptain SP660 drone is a fun, well priced drone is available here https://amzn.to/2PVL07Y. The SP660 Quadcopter is a very stable flyer and I was impressed at how well it maintained a controlled hover. Snaptain Sp660 has a long flight time and I got a 23 minute flight time camera video. In this video test Flight and review, I flew it indoors a lot and it flew great indoors and out. It is a LOT of Fun to fly. Itís a very light drone and if it does hit you no problem it doesnít hurt at all. The 1st Flight using its FPV RC Drone with its 720P HD WiFi camera this SP660 from Snaptain comes with two 2000mah batteries each giving it around 20 minutes of flight time. I happen to have other batteries that also fit this drone. However, only the 2000mah 2S batteries that come with the SP660 will give it the full 20 minutes of flight time.

The remote is rechargeable and I think thatís a great idea. The Snaptain Era App is very easy to use and works well. I was also impressed with the photo and video quality, especially indoors. It does have an option to take photos with gesture controls with your hands however, I feel itís easier to either use your phone to take the photos or the controller itself because in order to use the gesture controls the drone has to stay in place for at least 3 seconds and I find that Yes itís a very stable drone; however, not stable enough that I was able to effectively take a picture using my hands and fingers.

For this price point, I donít think gesture control is necessary anyway. Unboxing and first impressions and first look this quadcopter beginner drone comes fully assembled except the prop guards, which I never use. It flies nice and stable. The box is very nice and I use it to carry and store the drone Opening the product: The drone was very well packaged and the drone itself felt like it was made of a sturdy plastic and was light weight, but not too light weight to make it feel cheap. The remote feels like it's made with the same materials and is ergonomic in hands. The phone holder is great. It grips my Galaxy Note 9 with full case on it and feels very secure. If your looking for a good beginner drone that is very easy to fly, stable, fun to fly and has a long flight time and takes good pictures and video.

This is a winner and yes I recommend it fully. I really liked it a lot. I noticed other youtube reviews saw that the controller stick can sometimes stick. I had that happen too. Just move the stick around a little before flying to loosen the stick and it will be fine. I also had no problems with the Micro SD card and taking pictures. Be sure your card is formated correctly before taking pictures with this drone. This drone is priced around 80 dollars and I think for everything this drone has, itís a good price.
