WLtoys V383 UAV Test Range, Flight Time and Behaviour

Average 0/5

A slightly larger quadrocopter with an admittedly very unusual design is the WLtoys V383 500 Electric with adjustable servos and 4 propeller drives.

The model is especially suitable for flying cool stunts with it. The control is a bit different here than with other drones.

Especially because of the strong brushless drives, you can reach quite high speeds and show a high performance.

The quadrocopter is suitable not only for professionals but also for beginners, as it has a gyroscope system that works on 6 axes.

In this report we will introduce you to the technical details, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the V383 drone.

Technical data and facts about the V383 drone

The included remote control is a transmitter that works with 6 channels.

The motors have a particularly high drive power. Here the motor type 2218 3000KV is used. Via the 50C Lipo battery, the motors are operated at a voltage of 14.8 volts.

Normally the flight attitude and direction in which a quadrocopter flies is controlled by the number of revolutions. This is not the case with the V383 drone. Servo systems are used here, which change the angles of the rotor blades in such a way that different amounts of air are displaced at the same number of revolutions.

This type of control has the particular advantage that the pitch can be changed abruptly, thus creating an abrupt movement.

As servo these systems are used: 0.8 sec/60°,3KG/cm 6V.

To be honest, we have never seen such a system anywhere before. At least not in quadrocopter models. Normally such servos are used in other remote controlled aircraft, such as RC planes or helicopters.

Because the servo technology is combined with the drone design, the model can fly as stable as a quadrocopter, but as flexible and agile as a helicopter.

Thanks to the gyroscope system, which works on 6 axes, the drone can be flown very stable and calmly even by beginners. As a beginner you can then slowly approach the higher flying skills.


The design is really quite spectacular. On the photos you can see the special structure well. In the middle there is an elongated cockpit, in which all electronic components are located. In the front and in the rear area the arms protrude in a T-shape from the rest of the body, each leading to the propeller.

The servos are located at the beginning of the arms and control the blades of the propellers over long webs.

As the propellers have different design structures (front and rear section), they must have clear distinguishing features in pairs if a rotor blade needs to be replaced. Here the problem was solved in such a way that the front propellers have the colour “red” and the rear ones the colour “black”.

Also the dimensions of the WLtoys V383 500 Electric Drone are enormous. It has 404 mm x 415 mm and a weight of about 990 g, which is really quite a lot.


Unfortunately there is no camera included in the set for this quadrocopter. But since the model is so huge, you can certainly attach a great cam without any problems. But you will need some handicraft skills, because the model itself does not have an appropriate mount for it.

We recommend that you choose an action camera from the GoPro series!

Battery, flight time and range

The battery is a 2200 mAh Lipo battery with 50C. It works at a voltage of 14.8 Volt. Since the drone uses so much power, the flight time is unfortunately only in a range between 6 and maximum 8 minutes. The charging time is relatively short compared to other models with 60 to 80 minutes.

The maximum range of the transmitter can be very different and depends among other things on the charge level of the battery in the remote control. But you will usually get 200 to 500 meters.

Flight functions and position

Because the WLtoys V383 500 Electric Drone has this extraordinary design, it is of course also very versatile. Both beginners and stunt professionals benefit from the purchase of this model.

For example, you have the choice of controlling the drone in 3D flight mode or flying it in normal mode.

We recommend every beginner to first select the quiet flight mode and to familiarize himself with the special characteristics of the drone in a calm and safe flight attitude.

You can fly forward, backward, sideways and perform various stunts, including flying loops, rolls and some other maneuvers.

Advantages and disadvantages


  • Fast, agile flight maneuvers and 3D stunts possible
  • Suitable for both beginners and professionals
  • Possesses a very fancy design
  • Is super easy to control
  • Large drone with a fairly high performance
  • Charging only takes about 60 to 80 minutes


  • Only 6 to 8 minutes flying time


For those of you who have never flown a real stunt drone before, the WLtoys V383 500 Electric Drone is absolutely recommendable. You can test it for a few days and then decide if you really want to keep it. In any case, flying it is a great pleasure and you will quickly get used to the great flight functions and characteristics!
