  1. Quadcopter 101, Great video !!!
    I have an original Eye On Xtreme V1, in its time (2013, 2014) its price was not overrated, this V2 in 2018 is clearly too expensive, without enough punch and too too much with propriatery things. 100 bucks less could be ok but at this price …. . Anyway this video is a must to show why not to buy it. Thank you Q101

  2. Thanks for the honest review. Please note a few very important things…
    1. As stated in manual in order to switch flight modes the motors must be disengaged, so this is why you weren't able to switch flight modes, while the motors were still running idle. This is to ensure someone newer to flying doesn't accidentally get into a higher mode.
    2. The punch out you performed was while in beginner mode which has extreme limitations (including in throttle end points) due to it being a very docile mode for the beginner. In sport or expert you will find a completely different level of punch out.
    3. The radio is built to be an all in one unit for the beginner with built in monitor. However the Xtreme V2 is directly Spektrum compatible, so you can bind it to any Spektrum radio. Also it has PPM port for other protocol such as Frsky
    4. The new correct pricing is now on our website. Please note pricing is with goggles. Without goggles the price is $189.
    Best regards.

  3. Thanks for showing us what not to buy. This quad is way underpowered with poor flight performance. I keep seeing the HD video flashing even it's sitting on the ground. Their original Xtreme was pretty good at the time, but not this one.

  4. For $280.00 Iโ€™d expect so much more than it can offer although it dose have a good 720p camera, for the price Iโ€™d expect ZERO jello but some is noticeable at times.
    IMO itโ€™s around $130.00 overpriced, there are plenty of quadcopters just as good for around half the price.
    $300 will buy a used DJI Phantom 3, Iโ€™d find it so difficult to find a reason to but this.

  5. Hey. First I wanna say I still love all of your vids! You had helped me a couple years ago back when you told me to get the jjrc spider. Im thinking about getting the bayangtoys x21. Im looking for a wifi fpv gps large quad. Do you think for around $200 thats the best one to get or do you suggest another? Thanks in advance and thanks for all your vids! Ive spent way too many hours wastching them ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Price point is much too high for a quad like this. This appears to be toy grade. You can buy a Bfight on sale and a Taranis transmitter and still afford a starter box goggle for the same money. Unless it is indestructible I would not recommend it.

  7. Perhaps it wouldn't be such a "dog" if you had the 3S optional battery. 1804 motors are pretty small. 4 or 5 YEARS ago, the std. motor in a 250 class race quad was an 1806 2300kv motor .. they probably should have put 1806 motors in it. Advertised flight time is 10 minutes and you were getting less than 1/2 that when you first started getting 'low battery' warnings. You didn't mention that it has self-tightening screw on props, which is kind of nice. The video was pretty decent for 720P (which they are calling "HD"). I downloaded the manual, and its pretty extensive and goes into a lot of detail. I wonder if you downloaded the manual? Over all, its interesting, but seems to be a bit underpowered, with short flight times and proprietary batteries. With a cost of $280 with the "viewing goggles" (no RF receiver in side), its a little pricey, especially when it looks like all features are not quite up to snuff. Would like to see you see if the dealer would give you a 3S battery to try, to see how it flies with that, and also see how it flies in "Horizon" mode. Thanks for the review .. interesting.

  8. I think for a training quadcopter with an FPV option the Eachine E013 with the FPV Visor is a better option at a fraction of the price. The Eachine E013 is a Tiny Whoop so you can fly indoors. Thanks for the video and Happy Flying!
