Potensic Atom SE Drone (FlyMore Combo) Review

Over the last few years, mini drones have become more popular. Most of them, including the Potensic Atom SE mini drone that we will review here, weigh less than 250 grams. This means you don’t have to register it with the FAA before you can fly it.

The Potensic Atom SE drone is not exactly the DJI Mini SE quadcopter, which we reviewed earlier. But it does give advanced and beginner pilots a thrilling flight experience.

The camera, with a Sony sensor is decent, the flight time is excellent and for the price … Many drone enthusiasts agree that this is the real deal, coming real close to the DJI Mini SE.

While this seems like a superb adult beginner drone, it still has some issues, reported several times over, so it is not an isolated case.

The controls are too sensitive such that it is very easy to overshoot your target. If you touch a joystick accidently, the drone can dive, fly away fast.

You will also need a fast SD card to store your footage in high resolution. If you have a slow SD card, the video recording will fail.

TERCASO Drone Review

Are you looking for a small drone perfect for a kid or an adult to get them started in the drone hobby? If yes, this TERCASO Drone is perfect.

It is affordable, has a fairly good camera for capturing aerial footage, and it has other features to prepare you for a bigger quadcopter in future.

There is really not much to look forward to in this toy drone if you have some skill. It is targeted at kids and adult beginners. The available features are basic, the design is basic and even the flight distance is short. All that is to be expected from a small, beginner drone.

There are many good things going for this drone. However, it also has some downsides. For instance, there are no replacement blades. People that have broken theirs complain that they could not find a replacement blade.

There have also been complaints about the drone flying away with low speed winds, refusing to respond to commands and disappearing altogether.

DJI Avata Pro-View Combo

Getting started in FPV flying is not easy. Choosing the right drone for the job is paramount. The DJI Avata Pro-View Combo with Goggles seems like a good fit. It is expensive, but many who have tried it say it is worth it. We shall look into the features to see whether it really is.

This drone is known for the high quality video feed that you are going to get through the goggles it comes with. Besides these goggles are more advanced, smaller and they give excellent picture quality.

Like every other FPV drone, this one too has its fair share of troubles. One of them is the high cost. This drone is expensive!

If you wear glasses, you will have trouble wearing the redesigned and smaller goggles this drone comes with are not too friendly to glasses wearers. Another thing you might have issues with is the hard to reach SD card placement.

Also, the batteries may not give you as much flight time as is advertised. DJI says you will get 18 minutes out of a full charge, but realistically, most people get about 15 minutes, sometimes shorter than that.
