If you want a drone that looks like Phantom 4, but spending one thousand dollars on a quad doesn’t sounds good, consider the S-SERIES S20W Drone. This quad looks just like a DJI Phantom, but it costs only $83.
Some people may become sceptical about a drone this cheap, but those from S-Series did a good job with their previous drone, the S30W. Given this point, we might want to give the S20W a chance.
The drone has features that are pretty common among drones, like follow me mode, one button return function, three different flight speeds, headless mode and altitude mode. One more cool ability that this drone has is the Low Battery Auto Return Mode, this feature is great for beginners that are afraid to lose their quadcopter.
As I said, this drone can do almost everything a Phantom can do. Well, maybe the lifespan is shorter, but we don’t know that yet. The drone just appeared on the market and we need more tests and time to say such a statement.
Camera and Battery
The S20W comes with a good 1080P camera. Moreover, with a 120 degree wide angle, uses anti-shake technology and has remote control camera lens.
The drone doesn’t come with a spare battery, but the one you get is decent. Is a 3.7V 1000mAh and recharges through an USB cable, like most of the drones. With this energy, you’ll get about 8 minutes of flight time in normal weather conditions.
