Default Blade Zeyrok Drone BNF Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review

I waited for nearly five months for my Blade Zeyrok Drone BNF RC Quadcopter to arrive! I made an unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review video with this quadcopter to let you know everything I now know about it.


I went through and unboxed it, talked about its parts and pieces, took it on its maiden flight (I flew it in the dark too), and then did a closing review).

https://youtu.be/vQBZN5IyDEM Here are my review notes for this Horizon Hobby RC Drone after flying it outdoors:

Pros
- Outstanding looks
- It performs much better than I orignally thought it would outdoors, thought I thought it would still do well
- It handles crashes with ease with its lightweight but rugged build
- It is BNF, so it binds to my Spektrum DX6
- Three flight modes
- The lights make it a nice night flyer
- Accepts my 600mAh Nano-Tech batteries

Cons
- No prop guards and it is a beginner quad
- It flies like a toy grade quad in some ways without much punch
- Brushed motors
- Very loud

This is like a Blade 180 with a body, lights, and agility. The 180 was/is a great quad and this one is as well especially in the under $200.00 category. There are three flight modes not two; Safe, Stability, and Agility modes. The agility mode out of box is sluggish but can be adjusted however this is a beginner's quad so they didn't make it too agressive, Overall this flies much better than most of the entry-level camera quads out there plus it's backed by a very good company.

I finally got to take it for an outdoor flight and wow did it come alive outdoors! It still lacks a lot of punch but the flips are a lot of fun

This is my first outdoor flight in stability mode! I even included a little preview footage with it in stagility mode at the end, including some footage of a crash lol

One of the motors stopped working on the first day. No crash just stopped on the third flight.
