Holy Stone x400c Drone Review
The Holy Stone x400c is the latest offering in Holy Stones x series. It features a live broadcast capable WiFi camera. With the included monitor or your Android or iPhone you can watch live footage of your flight. It also comes with a 2.4 Ghz controller with eliminates interference, even when numerous drones are flying in close proximity.
It also has a 6 axis gyro. This means that besides the 3 main axis of pitch, yaw and roll, it is equipped with accelerometers on all three axis. This has the advantage of making the quadcopter more stable during flight. This is especially useful for beginners.
It also has additional features such as 1 button return which is quite handy and simply commands the drone to return to the controller in a straight line (be sure there are no trees in the way). It also has what is called a headless mode. To explain this quite simply this simply means that left will always be left regardless of which way the drone is pointing. This is also useful for beginners. Most higher end drones will not have this feature. The drone also has three flight modes, beginner, intermediate and expert. This just controls how fast it reacts to the controls and how sensitive the controls are. In expert mode it also has a side flip and forward flip function. Be aware that in expert mode most people will find it virtually unflyable.
Other complaints that people have are the camera. Simply, it just isn’t any good by today’s standards. It is not a high definition camera and many people find that you cannot use it in live mode to fly the drone because it has a delay and tends to skip. If you want a camera drone this probably isn’t for you.
Most people find that you will get 10 minutes of flight time which is not bad and you will get a little more time if you take the weight of the camera and the rotor guards off. For beginners i would suggest leaving the rotor guards on.
All in all, my opinion, if you want a camera drone be prepared to spend more money for one with a better camera. If you want a toy drone to just fly around a little, you can get those for cheaper than this. If you want a toy drone and want to take an occasional picture and aren’t to concerned about the picture quality, then the Holy Stone x400c may be for you.
You can read more amazon reviews here but take notice that a lot of the 5 star reviews have the same broken English and the same writing style. I’m just saying take it with a grain of salt. Many 3 and 4 star reviews will give you great information as well.
