An honest forum for your thoughts.
If you are looking for a really good drone for a good price get this one because the video quality is amazing and all the feature are great, I just recommend to get at least 2 batteries because they take a long time to charge, besides that it's a great drone.
I have literally 0 experience with any drone. After doing research and talking with some folks who are more into this world, they fully recommended Exo. I am very glad they did. This drone is amazing! From unboxing to flight took me 10 minutes. The instructions were a welcome find as well as the quick start guide as well, which is ALWAYS with me when I have been practicing. It's a great thing to be able to quickly reference what button does what when the drone is hovering. I still get REALLY nervous when its just sitting there hovering. All in all, this drone is phenomenal and I am having a blast puttering around with it. In fact, my neighbor decided to get one too and now we fly them together. Do yourself a favor, go ahead and buy it. You will be glad you did.
I will say one thing that you will need to keep a watch on. This drone is pretty light. A strong breeze can blow it around. Practice on calm days so you can get used to how the controls work. I use to fly RC planes and for me, the controls are different enough that its like having to relearn how to fly.
Another piece of advice for all you first timers out there. Keep the rear of the drone facing you. That way you dont have to think when you want to guide the drone. Left will be Left and vice versa. It can be confusing when the drones orientation is 90 degrees off to you and you need to react quickly. I have lost many other RC aircraft this way. Don't wreck you beautiful new drone, just take it slow and learn how to react by habit, you will thank me later.
The controller feels great in your hands with the fold out handles. The interface feels a little cheap and is more for show. Everything lights up and you get the little beep with every button push. Controls are easy enough to figure out with any prior drone use. Most of all though, the service of this company has really impressed me, especially for a company in the drone space. Highly recommend EXO Drones.
This is a very powerful and sturdy drone that flies with precision. Great camera quality! Easy to control once calibrated. TIP. To fly further you must go in the settings to remove from beginners mode. Overall flying this drone is guaranteed to be fun!
I wish I had found this before spending 3 times as much for a lesser drone. Easy to set up, quality crafted, feature laden and great battery life.
Excellent quality drone for the money. Excellent starter drone. Has a lot of great features and I love getting it with 2 batteries. The camera is good, stability is really good. Get it you wont be disappointed.
This is my 2nd drone, although Im a beginner I find this easy to operate. The remote control is easy to use. All the components are expertly crafted.
Ive been taking it very slow, and the weather is not cooperating, but so far Im loving the drone. Super satisfied with the quality of it. It feels like something that would cost more than I paid. Following the instructional videos, Ive been able to get the drone calibrated and ready for flight.
Now that weve had a few nice, dry days, I can report that this is a great drone. It is easy to use. With some of the beginner settings, it allows a new user the opportunity to get used to taking off, landing and flying the drone with some constraints to gain confidence until they are more confident in their abilities. This is a very nice drone for the price. Also, the company is very attentive to their customers needs.
I love the videos that this drone creates because of the gimbel camera. The drone is also easy to fly and really steady in the air! The automatic orbit over a center point is a nice touch! Lots of fun. Highly recommended!
The carry case is amazing. Feels like something dji would make. Perfect size and have some extra space for carrying batteries and props.
I have to admit that I was nervous about flying this device. I have large acreage areas that I am able to practice my piloting proficiency with out fear of disturbing others. The unit is loaded with features and I still have not tried them all. After reading through the manual a couple of times, I took the drone on her first flight. The hover and return to launch site features are very beneficial while adjusting to the flight controls. The unit and software are very forgiving for the newbie. The GPS navigation and drone Wi-Fi link to phone/controller unit make response time almost instant and the GPS navigation and real time telemetry from the drone is helpful. The full motion stabilization camera provided good pictures and very stable video. There are more features than I can review at this time. Overall I am pleased with the unit and am happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a good beginner drone with valuable features and controls that make the unit more functional than merely a toy
I got this drone because I heard a lot of good things about it and also great price, the drone is what I been looking for without paying allot of money. The videos and photos are amazing and the stability blows me away with the 2-axis gimbal. The drone will do more of what I need and I know will have lots of fun with it. I even flew this on a 24 mph gust wind and the video and pictures were still very stable as you can see on the attached, I love this drone and glad I purchased it, you won't be disappointing.
This is my first drone, I'm just a beginner, but wow. I've only flown it 2 twice now and I must say the pictures and video from this thing are great. I was debating on going with the pro, but I'm glad I went with the Ranger. The first picture with the truck in it is from 100' up looking over a house into the street without the zoom on. The second is from about 30' also without the zoom. The videos turned out great too. I will say that I did have some problems getting the drone to connect to the app right away, but I shut everything down and reread the steps and went step by step and it worked the second time. Great first drone.
High quality video and photo. Easy to operate. A great way to get started in drone photography.
I bought this for my husband as a gift, and he absolutely LOVES it. Easy to calibrate and control. It has a beginners mode, so you don't get too wild until you're ready. I would definitely recommend this one!!
