~REVIEW~ DROMIDA HOVERSHOT
We are excited to bring you a review of the Dromida HoverShot, this tiny titan is going to be available early this November. Putting the HoverShot through its paces to give you all the relevant input you need to know when you’re deciding what will work best for you and your needs and means.
STOCK # LXFYZN $99.99
-This drone has a couple of features that make it stand out. With a Motor Start/Stop as well as a Take Off/Landings button getting in the air is a breeze! With its 3 Axis gimbal and additional sensors they nailed the HOVER MODE. Want a selfie, “no problem” let the drone hover hit the “Picture button” and don’t forget to smile. Upping the fun factor even more is the Auto Flip mode which makes you look like a pro!
-The video will shoot in 720p and transmits via 2.4ghz WIFI to the DRONEVIEW app that has to be used on your APPLE OR ANDROID device. There is a bit of latency so FPV RACER this is not. But it does work great to get a glimpse of what the camera has in frame for the best pictures possible on this tiny titan. Whether you want to take a video or a quick snap, its got you covered with a button for either option.
-Small drones equals small batteries and if you play it safe you can get about 8 minutes of flight time. The included charger will take about one hour to fully charge the battery. Your up time is determined by the wind, tricks and flips as well as camera usage. Since it takes about ten times longer to charge a battery then it does to use up the battery we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you buy EXTRA BATTERIES!
-120mm is a good size, it’s the Goldilocks’s of sizes for the average drone user, not to big and cumbersome and not to tiny and fragile. You can toss the controller and drone in a backpack or a larger tote with room to spare for a snack and bottle of water and even a couple extra batteries.
-Being a savvy internet shopper we are sure you are tempted to buy a really low priced drone that claims to have all the features and equal tech as the brand name drones like this Dromida. This drone not only has all the tech and features but also comes with the additional support and history of people who love RC as much as we do.
THE LAST WORD
-We have to say it’s nice to look at a new product and actually go out and have a good time with it. Now ANY DRONE can get a little hairy at times but trust us if you have flown enough drones you know you will either crash and burn or donate one to the wind gods never to be seen again. We think this drone comes with just enough extra features to help mitigate some of those issues. Who doesn’t want a live glimpse of what the birds are seeing? Now a days its hard to find someone without a SMART PHONE so the APP download and FPV options should be a given. At this price point you really do get the best bang for your buck. So our final conclusion is that this little drone deserves our THUMBS UP!
