Cheerson CX-10C Quadcopter with Camera Review
The Cheerson CX-10C Quadcopter was, for the longest time, the world’s tiniest commercially available quadcopter. It has now been replaced by the Floureon FX-10 (which also sells under a couple other names, including the Cheerson CX-Stars).For some reason, probably just for the kick of it, the folks over at Cheerson have given the CX-10 a camera update. The quadcopter is now known as the Cheerson CX-10C and will sell for only around $10 over the usual price of the non-camera CX-10.
The Cheerson CX-10 mini quadcopter is a fun little quadcopter for anyone to fly around. If you’ve never flown a quadcopter before, it might take you a few minutes to get the hang of it, but that’s about it. At $20 with free delivery, it is one of our cheapest quadcopters for sale. You might consequently think that it’s going to be a low quality quadcopter that will stop working after a few crashes; that’s what I thought anyway! However, after having it for about a month now and crashing it numerous times, I can proudly say that it is still in fully working order.
The size of the quadcopter is definitely the first thing that hits you, it is incredibly small not much bigger than a UK Fifty Pence Piece and as you can see fits into the palm of my small hand. I charged it up with the supplied USB charger it took about 15 minutes and I was ready to get it up in the air.
The remote control whilst small felt comfortable it my hands and teasing the throttle stick forward it lifted it off the ground. Be careful not to be too jerky with the throttle control keep the movement steady as it lifts. You do get a little drifting due to the turbulence caused by the ‘Propeller wash’ so it it’s advisable to get it up to approximately 3 feet. Once it is up in the air it is far more stable than any other Quadcopter I’ve flown.
The Yaw rate on this Nano Quadcopter is extremely good so the slightest movement on the stick will cause the Quadcopter to change direction. Always remember if you are starting out to always fly slow and fly low.
You will have a few crashes but don’t worry this quadcopter despite its tiny size is extremely robust and durable and spare parts are inexpensive. The right stick in mode 2 will push the Quadcopter forward or bring it back toward you and pushing the stick to the left or right will cause the craft to bank or tilt. If you are a complete beginner then I suggest you practice the basic moves over and over again until you have mastered the controls. It can be frustrating at first but after a while your confidence will grow and when ready you have the option to fly the Nano in different flight modes. These options make the CX-10 RC Quadcopter perfect learning tool.
