  • GoolRC 515V 0.3MP Camera Quadcopter review

    If you have flown a quadcopter before, yes - you can fly GoolRC 515V very safely. Even if you don’t have never flown - this is a great small quad to take you on board of drone flying. This works best indoors. It’s fun to have something to use indoors that flies through narrow doors or small rooms.

    I own several low cost drones priced up to £100, but this is the most stable quad I’ve flown so far. No way this will crash, even in narrow passages. Even if you crash, nothing to worry - as there is all around protection for blades. Each blades has 3 fins, which also helps in steady flying in my opinion.

    There is a catch, but not a real problem as technology advances everyday - This s a pretty stable drone with altitude hold, that means you don’t have to train your brain to use the left controller to keep the drone steady on ground - all you need is to worry about the directions and manoeuvres.

    Comes in a well presented box, the remote control with the quadcopter and an extra set of blades & crash guards. The remote is of decent size and button / levers are very responsive. Please note that the colour of remote is black & blue irrespective of the colour you choose.

    You will get less than 5 minutes of flying time (with camera), that goes considerably lower when you start doing tricks / stunts. For the remote you need 4 x AAA batteries, which are not supplied. Quadcopter has builtin battery, which can be recharged via supplied USB cable. Remember the quadcopter battery as it only lasts 4-5 minutes, so always carry a portable battery pack if you wish to take it to local park or somewhere.
    Altitude Hold, Camera & all around protection
    Flying is not that difficult for those who never flown a quadcopter. This has one key take off and landing feature, works 98% of time correctly. Altitude hold will work only on plain grounds, not on elevations or steps, I’ve tried on an elevation and crashed the drone (not broken). As this is great steady flyer you will risk taking challenges - but make sure you familiarise in open grounds first and then move on to difficult areas.

    Just in case you find the drone is acting strange, just check any hair or grass on the blades. You can also do a reset of the drone on a flat ground to get it back into stable mode. Please check out the pictures to see the quality and size in real life. Overall a good buy and surely one of the best if you are new to flying.
