    Poor camera but ok quadcopter., March 19, 2015

    This review is from: UDI RC Discovery 2.4GHz 4 CH 6 Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter with HD Camera RTF (Toy)
    Previously I only used cheerson cx-10 which is nice too. I will update here about U818A-1.
    I took my chances and bought this as my first quadcopter with camera. Previously I only used cheerson cx-10 which is nice too. I will update here about U818A-1 more later when I get to fly it more. But the first few videos I got from it are pretty nice and clear. It also records audio but the motors are noisy as expected. My son was able to control the drone nicely on the very first day. It will be interesting to see how this one compares with Syma X5C-1..

    Update1:
    I have flown this a few times now. It flies well and has good control. Cannot tolerate winds though. My main interest besides flying it was to take aerial photos and videos and thats very disappointing. Many times the camera does not work. The files are corrupted and the angle is odd. Perhaps because the FOV is very limited.

    Update2:
    I finally returned U818A-1. Instead I bought Syma X5C-1.
    Comparing these two quadcopters, I am very happy with X5C-1. Its super stable even in 10-20 mph winds. You just need to have expert mode on and keep an eye on its movements. The camera is also much better on X5C-1. I got better videos and no file corruptions.

    I highly recommend X5C-1 over U818A-1.

    A great Quadcopter to learn how to fly., March 19, 2015
    This review is from: UDI RC Discovery 2.4GHz 4 CH 6 Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter with HD Camera RTF (Toy)
    So I purchased the UDI U818a and it was a great little quadcopter. When this came out I immediately purchased it! It is a very durable copter and flies a little more stable than is older counterpart. The camera is a big upgrade but I wouldn’t call it HD if anything is more like a 420p video but compared to the U818a it takes very good pictures. Whats nice about this quad is that it is inexpensive and easy to learn how to fly. If you are someone who like to tinker, there and numerous modifications that you can do to this quad to make it better.

    Some of the mods you can do to this are:
    -Upgrade to 1200MhA battery for longer flight time
    -build a small 1.8Ghz fpv transmitter to use with fat shark fpv glasses
    -remove the plastic shielding to make it fly better out doors
    -remove the camera and add a small external action came (not GoPro’s because they are too heavy)
    -glue pingpong balls to the feet so it will float on water (this is just a suggestion and I am in no way responsible if your quad gets damaged due to this mod)
    -adding a longer antenna to increase range

    Awesome RC Quadcopter, Hooked and Addicted Immediately, April 28, 2015
    By 
    HokiEE01 (Alexandria, VA) –

    This review is from: UDI RC Discovery 2.4GHz 4 CH 6 Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter with HD Camera RTF (Toy)

    Customer Video Review Length:: 9:33 Mins

    There are simply not enough good things that I can say about this RC Quadcopter / Drone. First off, I need to tell you that I was provided a sample for review purposes. I also have extremely limited experience flying RC planes or helicopters and just base my experience on RC toys that I played with as a teen.

    I got this to test out and within minutes I was flying and under control. I became addicted that night. I flew several times that weekend and got better. This thing just kept getting easier and easier to control. The camera and video functions were also super cool, a definite bonus as opposed to my previous RC helicopter experience. And by the way, I beat the heck out of this thing and it still worked. Sadly, I got it really high up in the air and it carried and landed upside down in a creek under a foot of water. It still worked for a week after that, after being underwater for 5 minutes! I will definitely be buying one with my own money now, just be more careful next time. The fact that it even worked is a testament to its robustness.

    PROS
    -Incredibly sturdy design, plastic is high deflection so it bends and doesn’t crack. I have come to find that you want a plastic ring all around to protect the blades. Any quadcopter out there without full protection will inevitable take a shot to the blades in the portion that isn’t protected.
    -Very easy to learn and control, easy learning curve. I was a total beginner and had control by the end of the weekend in 10 or so flights.
    -Camera is 720P and can take stills as well as video. The provided 2 GB micro card is not good, I was taking videos with that and they kept crashing. I swapped out cards with an 8 GB Sandisk micro card and the videos ran smooth after that
    -Large batteries and you get an extra one! This should not be a bonus but a standard. Batteries work 7 – 9 minutes depending on usage. The included charger works great as well and can charge both up at the same time. I did have the battery pop out on me quite a bit while I was still trying to learn it. So I put a piece of electrical tape over the battery to secure it in place and the problem was easily solved
    -LED lights are cool, the headlight helps you identify the front of the quadcopter at night for guidance
    -Flip function is super cool, look like a pro and you are just pushing some buttons
    -Remote has great 2.4 GHz range (~150 feet or so) and a nice LCD display at the bottom, lots of trim options
    -Fun and addicting, videos are really something special to show your friends or to post online
    -Spare blades and parts are provided
    -The package has a handle and doubles as a nice place to store to keep safe
    -Decent illustrated manual, does a great job at outlining little details, like the sequence for connecting the two so you can get up and flying

    CONS
    -Battery popped out, easily fixed with a piece of electrical tape
    -Included micro sd card kept crashing on the videos, once swapped out with a higher quality one the videos worked fine
    -Trim settings need to be stored in memory on the remote transmitter, you have to redo them each time and it is cumbersome which makes you not want to do them at all
    -No way to reverse the turn settings on the transmitter, would have liked them opposite so they would be more intuitive for me to use. Still confuses me, turn left to turn the quadcopter to the right.

    The four cons were easily dealt with and overcome and the rest is just awesome. I can’t think of a toy that I have had more fun playing with in years. I have beat the death out of this thing, had it up in trees, banged it into curbs, had my 4 year step on it, and even had it underwater and it still runs. It is about a week after the underwater incident and the motors need to be replaced and the video and camera is shot but it really shouldn’t have even worked at all. You just need to be super careful when you play with this toy. Lesson learned, when you get it high up and it starts getting away from you, just get it somewhere safe and drop the throttle to zero. It will fall and flutter and you won’t damage it. You have to be more concerned with dropping it than with trying to steer it out of or away from an obstacle. You will never get in trouble with dropping this thing right from the air as long as it is safe below.

    I haven’t had this much fun in years. At the end of my video you can see some footage from a video that I shot on the plane. Keep in mind I had to dumb this video down from 720P to 640×480 to get it to fit with the rest of my video. If you are in the market for one of these, or even considering it, I strongly urge you to give this product some serious consideration – simply addicting.
