Default Q303-A Quadcopter From Gearbest

Here's my guide/review of the Q303-A multicopter from Gearbest:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VukMIlVdS6w In the video I will showcase the Q303-A drone. This quadcopter is equipped with both a one axis gimbal, HD camera and 5.8GHz first-person-view. You can find the Q303-A drone here: http://goo.gl/HnqOU1

The package includes:

-Q303 quadcopter
-Transmitter
-FPV screen
-Antenna
-Sun shade
-4GB micro SD card + reader
-4 extra propellers
-Propeller guards
-7.4V 1500mAh 20C lithium polymer battery
-Charger (drone battery)
-Charger (screen)
-Manual



Features:

- 5.8GHz first-person-view, with everything included! You get the FPV screen with integrated video receiver, antenna and even a sun shade. No visible delay in the video, that's great!
- The one axis gimbal (servo-driven) is a nice touch! It automatically stabilizes the camera while flying, and you can even adjust the camera tilt manually during flight.
- The headless mode function makes it easy for beginners whom might have difficulties orientating the drone. Read more about headless mode here: http://www.rcdronearena.com/2015/02/...-copter-drone/
-The return to home function doesn't really work as it only flies backwards. It doesn't set a home point, it simply flies backwards. This is a big problem in case the drone is faced the wrong way.

-The anti-vibrating balls probably removes vibrations, jello and makes the footage more stable in general. However, I still have some unwanted vibrations. Balancing the propellers might be required in order to achiev best possible footage.
- You can quickly change from mode 2 to mode 1 if you wish, by pushing the lever located above the power button downwards. Mode 2 is the most common (throttle on left stick).
- The battery is a DJI-inspired construction, were the battery is in a protective plastic case. This is a great way of protecting your batteries, and makes it very easy to swap batteries. The bad thing about this is that you can't use any battery, you have to purchase these exact batteries from WLToys.
- The transmitter is robust, well sized and packed with functions. This is great for both beginners and experts!
- 6 axis gyro ensures stability and good performance.
- The Q303 is also equipped with LED lights for night flying. The lights also indicates low battery power (blinking).

Conclusion:

Overall a nice flying quadcopter. The gimbal really did work, even though it was a little bit choppy. The camera was alright, but not too impressive. However, what I absolutetly love with this quadcopter, next to the price, is the altitude hold function. It made it very easy to capture pictures and video! The screen was bright enough to be used in sunny weather, and the live video quality was sufficient. If you're thinking about purchasing this quadcopter you may want to buy a second battery due to long charging time!
