The KF10 Drone with 4K camera is one of the affordable beginner level quadcopters that you can buy for an exhilarating flight experience. However, a good aircraft is known by its features, specs and flight functions. Therefore, we are going to explore what features this one comes with, later.
Among some of the features that make this quadcopter stand out among its peers include the dual camera function. It has two cameras – the nose and the belly camera. The good thing is that you can switch from one to the other at will, from the remote controller.
Even if you have years of experience flying toy-class quadcopters, this one is going to excite you quite a lot. It has too many features and functions to be boring.
This aircraft is available in three packages – with one, two or three batteries. It is better to get at least two batteries for a longer flight time.
KF107 Features & Technical Details
The design, build quality, camera quality, battery quality and automated flight functions matter very much in the toy-class quadcopters. While many quadcopters come with all of these, the difference is usually in the size, you know, the specs.
Design and Build Quality
This is a foldable drone by design. It is easy to store and travel with. When unfolded, it measures 16.5 by 12.6 by 3.1 inches.
When you fold it, the size reduces considerably to 4.3 by 7.0 by 3.1 inches. You can see it really sizes down so much such that you can even easily carry it in your jacket pocket.
The weight of the quadcopter is 495g, which means you are going to have to register it with the civil aviation authorities in your country as most require any quadcopter above 250g to be registered.
The hull material is ABS plastic, the same one that is used in 3D printing. It is light in weight, resilient and does not crack open when it crashes or drops.
The quad has been equipped with 1806 brushless motors. They give it a powerful flight performance. In addition, they make minimal noise and they also help preserve the battery.
Battery and Flight Time
This aircraft comes with one, two or three 7.4V Li-po battery with 3000mAh capacity. The battery can give you a flight time of 25 minutes. You can see that you will get at least 70 minutes when you get 3 batteries, which is incredible.
These are modular batteries so they are easy to insert and remove. They also charge outside the aircraft, which means you can fly it with one while the other charges.
The charging time for one battery is 180 minutes. For such a high capacity battery, this is fair since many of them take up to 5 hours to charge fully.
Since these are smart batteries, you can see the voltage status on the small LCD display on the remote controller.
This is a regular 2.4GHz remote controller, with zero to minimal latency in data transfer. It has an LCD display that shows you important stats regarding your drone. These include battery voltage, quadcopter height, distance and so on.
The remote controller also comes with a rechargeable battery with 350mAh capacity. The charging time for the RC battery is 50 to 60 minutes, which is quite good because at full charge, this battery can fly the drone through three batteries.
The maximum control range for the remote controller is 1500 meters.
The camera is most people’s reason for buying a quadcopter. With the KF107 drone, the camera has a photo resolution of 4096 by 3072P while the video resolution is 2048 by 1088P. The camera has a panning angle of 120° and the vertical angle adjusts by 90° from the remote controller.
This drone has a long FPV distance of 1200 meters. You will have a lot of fun seeing what the quad can see as it flies.
This quadcopter also comes with two cameras, one on the nose and the second one on the belly. You can switch intermittently between the two. The belly camera gives you a good ground view.
The nose camera has electronic stabilization. While mechanical stabilization is the king, well, EIS also does an excellent job of keeping your photos and videos distortion-free.
Unless it is a racing or performance drone, it had better come with good flight functions. Well, the KF107 quadcopter is not a racing drone, so it also comes with some admirable automated functions.
They include the following:
Gesture Photos and Videos
At a distance of 3 meters, this drone can recognize gestures and start taking photos and videos. If you show it the victory sign, it will start taking photos. If you show it the palm sign, it will start taking videos. You can use it to capture good family photos and videos with everyone included.
The aircraft connects to dozens of satellites. It also connects to the GPS in your smartphone and you will always know where the drone is at all times.
GPS connectivity also means the aircraft has some admirable fail-safe functions. If the battery runs low or the signal is disconnected, the drone turns back and returns home automatically.
If the signal is lost, press the one key return and the drone will come back home.
In this mode, you can have the drone follow a preset route. You just need to open the map interface on the app and set a route with dots, which you will then connect with a line. Once you launch the drone, it will follow that route.
Follow Me Mode
You can get the K107 quadcopter to follow you keeping a respectable distance wherever you go. It recognizes you and locks onto you. The maximum GPS follow distance is 30 meters.
Mobile Phone Control
With this function engaged, the drone flies to the left or right, forward or backward when you wave your smartphone. This is a fun function.
If this camera drone flies out of your sight, you can engage headless mode so that it aligns itself according to the position of the pilot. The nose will always face the right direction.
Set the circle mode so that the drone can fly around a landmark in the clockwise direction, capturing footage from all angles.
