/ Blade 720 drone ?
Anybody got one ? My kids have just seen it advertised on YouTube and it seems a bit too good to be true , my usual adage is that it therefore is . The website ( I just googled it ) also looks a bit amateurish and I suspect it might be a scam . They want to club together to buy one but I just told them to do a bit of research . This thread is my lazy attempt to stop them wasting £80.
I know a lot of people here dislike drones and I kind of simpathise, but I m fairly sure their intended use is relatively harmlesss . If you feel the need to rant about drones please start another thread .
I'd definitely say scam. Photos seem to be very slightly photoshopped images of a DJI Mavic, the returns page talks about them not accepting health and personal care items back.
Go and have a look at Banggood; dozens of drones to choose from. If you must...
If you as a parent don't know anything about Lipo batteries and how to deal with them safely, you really need to. The potential to burn down you house is real.
As for the drone you mention, these are cheap Chinese knock-offs masquerading as DJI Mavic drones, and are well known for being rubbish in the drone community. Among their faults:
a) poor cameras
b) poor GPS lock/unexpected behaviour (it could well sod off to china)
c) lack of parts for repairs
d) no battery protection circuitry
e) poor range
f) it's a camera drone so it's dull as hell to fly
It's a clone from a clone you can buy the cheap original on Aliexpess for less then 35 dollar. Google E58 drone same version different box.
This item is garbage for want of a better description. Cheap and nasty and I am in the process of trying to return the one I have just bought. £80 down the drain in my opinion.
There are plenty of good drones on the Market at far better prices, check out SYMA.
I've bought plenty of stuff from them. When I had a problem with one order (size descriptions inadequate/incorrect), they sent a replacement without any fuss.
Let them buy it and learn a very valuable lesson early on in life
that is that drone previewing three pebble slab blows yours on sight.
I pay but I did not receive the drone,looks like they are pulling me around,I tray to contact them they answered a few times sand a tracking numbers doesn’t exist, i’m Really disappointed e I suggest who is thinking to order don’T do it
THEY ARE NOT TRUSTABLE
Spot on especially the lips battery part. We have very strict policies at work for students using them for projects.
It’s defiantly a scam. I just watched a ad for it on youtube, it came up before a video and thought I’d see what it was about. Instantly sceptical about the so called 60% more power than leading brands I thought that sounded fake so kept watching and while they’re showing the drones ability it cuts to the on board camera and what do you see? Oh it’s the camera of a dji drone with all the layout of a dji drone and even the letters DJI in the top left I couldn’t stop laughing it’s such a scam I wouldn’t even bother looking at them if they’re gonna lie like that
