Design and build
The S66 RC Quadcopter is a very useful RC quadcopter with an extraordinary build and foldable design. The S66 RC Quadcopter can be carried nearly anywhere if it’s folded. The best thing is that you’ll have a caring case in which you can transport it anywhere. The S66 Quadcopter has a small size of 10.5×12.5x3cm (unfolded) and 8x 6.5x3cm(folded) so it’s not bigger than your phone, which permits you to place it even in your pocket. This makes it simpler, more space-saving, and more secure to ship.
Foldable drones are at present extremely well known, so it isn’t astonishing that an ever-increasing number of foldable drones are appearing. And most of them are moving around the same price. So it’s up to the drone’s specs and your taste which one to choose.
You will get the drone with a 3.7V 650mAh battery. The battery can be inserted from the back of the drone and it’s perfectly safe to handle it. With a full charge, the drone can fly for around 13 minutes. However, some things like the weather, flight style, or camera resolution Prior to flying, the battery should be charged for an hour for a full charge.
The controller is not bigger than the drone, and it’s enabled with quite a few buttons. But the most important thing, the maximum range of the controller is 150 meters. Which is not much and it’s definitely smaller than the other 4K camera drones. For example, the recently reviewed Holy Stone HS720E is another 4K camera that has a flight range of 1KM.
On the controller, you can activate different flight features such as the optical flow positioning, one key take-off/land/return, altitude hold mode, headless mode, runway flight, emergency stop, gravity sensor, photo/video gesture, 3D flip, 2.4Ghz control frequency. Each button is enabled with a small icon and in the user’s manual you can find out what each of the icons means. And last but not least the controller has a foldable phone holder as well. If you download the provided app and connect to your drone you can see on your drone the live feed of the camera.
S66 RC Drone is a multifunctional drone that comes with a 4K top-quality camera that can take super clear and crisp photos and recordings. With a double camera on the drone, you can have a sight of the scene and take photos and recordings from an alternate point of view. Meanwhile, there are significantly more remarkable capacities for you to experience and play in your own imaginative manner. Using the dual positioning system can help the drone flying steadily and shooting still. The camera can be adjusted in 90-degree and the lens has a curved and wide view, just like any other sports camera.
The GoolRC S66 Mini Quadcopter has a foldable and lightweight design. Also, the drone comes with a 4K camera, and some really awesome and useful features. However, the camera has a relatively small sensor so the 4K resolution photo provided by the S66 can’t be compared to a 4K picture by a DJI drone. So it won’t be helpful for a professional photographer. However, a beginner or a child might enjoy using the S66. So keep that in mind if you want to buy the quadcopter.
