Design and build
The Contixo F22 is a relatively small drone, in its unfolded form it measures 11.81×11.41×2.56 inches and weighs around 242g. Like almost every low-cost drone, the Contixo F22 comes with brushed motors, it’s not as good as a brushless motor. Brushed motors are less powerful and louder. But since this is a low-cost drone you kinda know what you will get for that money, so it doesn’t really matter. The drone still flies well and can be controlled easily. If you want this motor to last you a long time you will need to clean the motors more regularly and make sure they are replaced if needed.
At each arm there are LED lights, these turn on automatically during flight. If you fly the drone at night, it makes you easier to locate the drone and also it does make for a cool spectacle as the lights zip around the darkened sky. The LED lights also have some functionality purposes because they indicate when the drone compass is fully calibrated by flashing a certain sequence.
The F24 has a better build because it has brushless motors. They are quiet and they last a bit longer, also it requires less care and maintenance. This is a small drone and also it’s foldable too. In his folded form It measures 7 inches by 4 inches. When you unfold it, it measures 11 inches by 10 inches. The drone comes with a carry case that makes it easier to transport your aircraft. It is a small case, but it is enough to fit the drone and all the accessories that you might need.
This drone has a 1080P HD camera. It’s perfect for shooting high-quality day-to-day videos outdoors and indoors as well. It has a wide field of view at 120 degrees. The camera angle is also adjustable so can capture on your camera’s sight exactly what you need.
You also will get the first-person view (FPV) with this drone if you download the manufacturers’ app on your phone. FPV enables you to do live video transmission, so you don’t have to shoot blindly.
With the F24 you will get a 1080P HD video camera, which is a decent camera. The camera angle can be adjusted manually. And for the joy of everyone, you also get to enjoy first-person-view (FPV) with this drone. If you haven’t heard about this yet, this first-person view is where you get to see drones’ camera transmission in life. To enjoy the FPV video transmission, you will have to connect your smartphone to the remote controller.
The maximum range in optimal circumstances is up to 1800 feet. You can store the footage that you captured on your smartphone, or on an SD card because the drone has this capacity as well. However, if you use the app and choose to store the data on your phone you can share them immediately on social media accounts. Another feature that goes hand-in-hand with the camera is a feature that is called: Hand Gesture (or selfie mode). With this you don’t have to hold the controller, you just make the proper hand gesture and the drone will start to take a photo.
The Contixo F22 drone has a 7.4V 1200mAh battery that is going to give you 15 minutes of flight time. The battery needs around 110 minutes to fully recharge. But if you want to use it as a professional you can buy spare batteries at any time. The flight range distance is 1800 feet with the controller. However, the video transmission distance through the app is only 600 feet. One of the most important features on the drone is the waypoint feature that allows you to select the route that you would like your drone to follow on the smartphone without controlling him manually.
The F24 comes with a 7.4V 2500mAh Lithium-polymer battery. The battery is enabled with LED lights that can show you how much is left from your battery. The maximum flight time with this battery is 30 minutes, but this depends much on your flight style. If there is some wind, or the motor just simply needs more power you will get around 25 minutes of flight time. The F24 has some intelligent flight options as well like: Waypoint, Follow me mode, Auto return home.
As you saw from our Contixo F22 vs F24 comparison, the F24 is a bit advanced than his little brother the F22. So I believe it won’t be a surprise for you that the F24 will cost you more as well. The only question is which one is more suitable for you. If you only want to use it for personal use then you can go with the F22, but if you’re an influencer, or just want to have lit photos and videos on your social media account then I think the F24 will fit you more.
