UDI 6 Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter Review

There are some pretty decent drones available and then there are drones that go beyond that into the realm of awesome. The UDI 6 Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter with Camera RTF Mode 2 fits the bill of awesome.

To start with, the design of the device looks a lot like a UFO and that alone amps up the cool factor. This drone is an RTF drone, which means it’s ready to fly from the moment that you get it.

You won’t have to spend time assembling a bunch of pieces before you’re ready to get out and have some fun with it. This is a quadcopter, which means you get some pretty smooth flights.

The blades are gear driven and there’s a front blade guard. It’s pretty easy to tell the front from the rear of the device because the front blades are white and the rear blades are black.

The plastic frame that’s surrounding the blades is made that way to keep the blades from becoming damaged if it bumps into something. Because the frame is flexible, it also protects the drone from getting damaged even during those crash landings that are hard on drones.

There are LED lights and they have an off mode if you don’t want to use them. The transmitter also has some cool features – including an easy to read LCD screen. The control on the top right is what you would use to control the lights when you want to turn them on or off.

The transmitter has the easy to push button, which is what you use to turn on the camera or the video when you’re ready. The camera is great for use if you want to take pictures and you can use the video for filming any type of shot – including surveillance.

The distance for the transmitter is about 30 meters. Because the body of this drone is lightweight, you need to be cautious about flying it when it’s windy. The drone doesn’t have the engine power to fight against harsh winds.

The drone has two modes. Mode one is the regular mode that’s so easy to fly that even beginners can handle it. But in mode 2, this is the advanced mode. This is what you would use if you wanted the drone to perform stunts.

If you want to do flips and rolls, this is the mode you would use. It’s better to have some experience before using this mode because the drone does move faster. It has 360 eversion, which a lot of people like.

This is what enables the drone to be able to perform stunts alone and then it self-corrects back to the upright position. Some people don’t like this feature since it’s not manual. You get about 6 to 10 minutes of flight time and it takes 120 minutes to charge the battery.
