You can carry on easily in a backpack, a smaller bag, or even in a larger pocket. The material of the quadcopter is a greatly durable plastic that survives even serious crashes. Probably the manufacturer knew that crashes can happen easily with an inexperienced pilot.

The secondary camera is on the bottom that also plays the role of the optical sensor. The down-facing and the front-facing camera has a 2 MP resolution.
The bright LED lights on the arms and on the nose make the SG700 a good night time flyer.

The Remote Controller

It has two foldable handles on the bottom, where you can put your smartphone in. The controller is lacking on and off buttons. In order to turn on the controller, you have to unfold the right phone holder arm at the bottom. Interesting solution. The remote controller also has two foldable antennas. The unit works with standard two AAA batteries.
On the controller, you will see a basic setup. Two joysticks for throttle and rudder and some function buttons. On the left-hand side near the joystick, you will notice the auto takeoff and landing, and the emergency stop buttons. On the upper corner, you see the speed rates button along with the one key return. SG700 has three-speed rates. On the right-hand side, you have the photo and video recording button, and at the upper corner, the headless mode and 3D flip buttons. The transmission range of the remote controller is about 80 meters.
Flight Performance & Features
In the air, SG700 is really stable thanks to the optical sensor that works also as a secondary camera. You can control the quadcopter with the dedicated app for smartphones or with the controller alone. For seeing the live FPV feed you will use your smartphone as a display for the camera picture. The interesting fact is that you can use both cameras for pictures and videos too. The FPV stream work on a 2.4 GHz WiFi signal in a range of about 80 meters in distance.
It seems that using the app and the remote controller at the same time, the quadcopter starts to drift away. This is an issue that a firmware upgrade or app upgrade can solve. Other than that SG700 is really fun to play with. It can perform 3D flips and on the higher speed rate seems to be agile as well. It has some advanced features too, like altitude hold, one key take of and landing, headless mode, and return to home function which basically means, that the drone will fly in the opposite direction from the takeoff position.
As a selfie drone, you can control simply with a smartphone, with the gyro sensor you can only tilt the phone at the direction where you want to fly. SG700 is responding to hand gestures. With a two-fingered “V” sign you can take photos instantaneously.
