The quadrocopter has some great functions, which should be especially interesting for beginners. For example the headless mode and the automatic altitude hold.
You can simply fold up the aircraft, similar to the DJI Mavic. This makes the drone even more compact and you can easily take it with you wherever you go.
The drone can either be controlled via the remote control, which is also included in the delivery, or alternatively it is possible to operate the drone alone via your smartphone/tablet and the mobile app.
Here we are also at a feature that enhances this model especially. This is the FPV flight function. In some shops you can get the drone for 45-46 € and still it has a 720P HD FPV camera, which transmits the pictures in real time to your smartphone.
In our report you will find out everything you should know about this model.
Technical data and facts
Despite the no name brand this drone makes a pretty good impression. The technical values are quite impressive for this price category and speak clearly for this model.
The set includes a controller which works with a frequency of 2.4 Ghz and over 4 channels. The range here is up to 30 meters, depending on whether there are objects between the drone and the remote control or even electromagnetic fields are interfering.
The quadrocopter has a speed adjustment and a safe battery slot for children.
You can also replace the flight battery and simply order more lipo batteries, so you can extend the flight time as much as you like.
The quadrocopter reacts to control commands without hesitation and you can even take your hands off the joystick without the model crashing, as different systems are used to keep the drone in balance.
The design is relatively unspectacular, but the folding function is very advantageous if you want to take the drone with you on trips or business trips.
In the scope of supply are among other things several bumpers, i.e. 4 x rotor protectors, which you should also put on before the first flight, especially if you are still a beginner and a little inexperienced.
Below the front is the 720P camera, which provides high quality images. However, there is no gimbal system, neither mechanically nor software controlled. Therefore, one can see slight vibrations or shakes in the pictures.
Despite the somewhat low resolution, you can use the camera to capture unforgettable moments and keep them for later.
In addition to the control via RC controller or the mobile operation, you can also enjoy some more functions with the Conthfut C16W drone.
The automatic altitude maintenance works, for example, via an integrated altitude barometer, thanks to which the drone not only stabilises itself in its flight position, but also automatically maintains the altitude you set.
The headless mode makes the flight even easier. If the drone is in this mode, it will follow the remote control, regardless of how the model’s head is facing you. For example, if the quadrocopter hovers in the air to the side of you and you pull the right joystick towards you, it will fly straight towards you.
For children and for fun in between, the 3D flip function should also be of particular interest. Meanwhile many fun drones have this feature. You just have to press the release button on the remote control, then the drone will do a somersault and then return to automatic hovering flight. The altitude barometer and the 6-axis gyroscope are especially useful here.
Battery and flight time
The flight battery of the Conthfut C16W drone is really awesome. Normally, the flight time in this price segment is between 5 and 10 minutes, but this model takes a whopping 20 minutes thanks to the powerful battery.
In the scope of delivery there is a 1000 mAh rechargeable battery, which works at a voltage of 3.7 Volt.
You can also buy spare batteries, which have a lower charge capacity (500 mAh), then the flight time is 10-15 minutes.
Advantages and disadvantages of the Conthfut C16W drone
