Tenker Skyracer Test – Easy foldable mini drone, range and flight duration

Average 0/5

Today we present to you the tenker Syracer. This is a quadrocopter which is very well suited for beginners and has compact dimensions.

This mini drone is so small that it can be easily inserted into the remote control and stowed away.

With the price you get off very well with under 30 Euro. So the copter is quite cheap in itself, the engines turn very high and thus ensure fast and acrobatic flight maneuvers.

However, we recommend that you fly this model preferably indoors, as strong gusts of wind outside can throw the quadrocopter off balance and cause it to crash.

The quality of workmanship alone is super for this price. Although the plastic is quite cheap and the drone was produced cheaply by the manufacturer, it has its advantages. So in case of a crash there is no serious damage to the outer shell, because it gives way a little bit.

Technical data

Fun is very important for this model. For example, the drone can do somersaults at the push of a button and can turn around 360 degrees in a circle quite fast next to the rollovers.

This way the quadrocopter is perfect for children who like to play with such flying machines. Both people and objects are protected by a small propeller guard that is attached to each.

In itself the Skyracer is a great fun drone, but it has no camera. We have also tested mini drones which have a small cam, but this will cost you a lot more.

Design of the mini drone

As already mentioned, the drone has a soft plastic outer shell that seems to be quite resistant. So the copter does not break so quickly even if it crashes and the propellers are also protected. You can also remove the propeller protection which is included in the delivery, but this is not recommended, because the drives could otherwise break in collisions.

The dimensions are 11.43 cm x 11.43 cm x 3.05 cm and the quadrocopter has a weight of about 24.9 grams.

Battery, range and flight time

The battery that is installed here does exactly what you expect in this size class. That means the flight time is somewhere between 5 and 8 minutes. Other models that are a bit bigger can do more, but are also in a higher price range.

The range is about 30 to 50 meters, it also depends on how well the batteries in the remote control are charged and whether there are objects between the drone and the remote control. A greater distance than 50 meters is not very useful anyway, because from this distance between the drone and the pilot you can hardly recognize the model.

After 40 minutes the empty battery is fully charged again and can be used again for flying.

How good is the Tenker Skyracer really suitable for beginners?

Of course this question requires a subjective assessment. However, we are of the opinion that the drone has all the features needed to handle the model properly and to gain flying experience step by step.

Besides the good quality workmanship, rotor protection and safe drives, features like 360 degree rotation, 3D flips, 3 different speed modes, the stable hover function, headless mode, emergency stop and one-key landing / take-off are very advantageous for beginners.

What are the advantages and disadvantages?


  • Robust and safe design
  • Extensive flight modes and features that are well suited for beginners
  • Small foldable drone for compact transport
  • Flying fun is guaranteed – very suitable for children


  • Very susceptible to wind
  • No camera and FPV function available

What is included in the delivery?

The package contains all the parts you need to fly the drone immediately. However, we recommend that you fully charge the battery before the first use.

These parts are included:

  • 1x Skyracer Quadrocopter
  • 1x radio remote control
  • 4x spare propeller
  • 4x propeller protection
  • 1x propeller rod
  • 1x USB charger
  • 1x screwdriver
  • 1x instruction manual


The low price makes this drone affordable for everyone. Beginners and children benefit from the compact design, the great various flight functions and the high fun factor.

The workmanship could be a little bit better, but for this price segment it is completely normal and ok.

What bothers us a bit is the high susceptibility to wind, which is perfectly normal due to the low weight of the drone.

All in all, you get a super mini drone at a very reasonable price, so we recommend this model.
