Default WLToys W383 FPV Hexacopter Review

Where to get one:

Here is a full house FPV drone, in a hexacopter, it has a full cage to protect the propellors, an all in one 5.8G FPV screen and Transmitter powered by a 1s lipoly.

With the 5.8G fpv you dont get lag/latency like wifi fpv has. Combined with a real transmitter its a fun one to fly, the only complaint is the fpv camera would be nice if it was adjustable up, so you can see forward in forward flight.

Range and flight times are good, control is proportionate and feels good, it takes nice quality video, the pictures I got were a little out of focus, but maybe was because it wasnt perfectly stationary when I took the pictures.

- Price for what you get
- 5.8G FPV!
- Lipo in TX
- Comes with SD card
- Takes good video quality
- Prop guards
- Flip button
- Comfortable Transmitter
- Easy to view screen, with battery monitor
- Spare props
- Handles light wind well

- Camera angle not adjustable
