DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Review

The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is an upgrade of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. Some reviews say that it is better to wait for the Phantom 5 if you already have the Phantom 4 Pro, but then you will be missing on many improvements that this baby comes with. While the Pro 4 was and still is a very impressive drone, new propulsion and transmission system has been added to the V2.0, and it makes transmission between the drone and your DJI goggles (which you buy separately) seamless. Things like the camera remain unchanged. Phantom enthusiasts who know a good drone cannot afford to not have this one in their collection.

DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2

DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Features & Technical Details

This drone looks very much like the 4 Pro and it measures 15.7 by 9.9 by 6.8 inches. It weighs a meager 3 pounds, making it a good drone for traveling, as it won’t add all that extra weight. It has been constructed with titanium and magnesium alloys making it quite a hardy drone, yet very light in weight.

One of the most outstanding features is the OcuSync transmission system that will connect seamlessly to the DJI Goggles. This technology connects seamlessly through the 2.4GHz or the 5.8GHz . The predecessor came with Lightbridge technology that also can switch between the 2.4GHz and the 5.8GHz frequencies. This means that the technology connects to the strongest or the available connection.

The drone also comes with new propellers (9455S), which as you will see in DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2 review, it reduces the noise by more than 40 percent. This means that you can fly this drone indoors comfortably, if you have the space. These new propellers can also be used on the older Phantom 4 Pro but while the noise level is going to drop, it may not be as big a drop as in the Pro V2.0.

The drone is enabled with obstacle sensors that help it to avoid collisions from 4 directions. This is a very safe drone to fly even when you are beginner because it is designed to avoid obstacles. It has vision to fly sideways and backwards.

Another marvelous features in this drone is the camera. Here, Phantom does not disappoint at all. It is a 20 MP with 1-inch sensor that can shoot high quality 4K videos at 60 fps. It can also shoot still photographs at Burst Mode, at 14 fps.

You will get better and more clarified video transmission even over the long range, thanks to the more enhanced OcuSync transmission system. Connecting wirelessly to the Goggles, you will get a flying experience such as you have never had before. One of the things that the goggles do is give you a 360-degree view and an incredible FPV – first person view.

The remote controller is very stylish. It has an inbuilt 5.5-inch LCD display. Although it will cost you more, it is much better because it comes ready to use and removes the hassles of downloading and installing the DJI app on your smartphone.

The battery life offers 30 minutes of flight time, much longer than most of the other drones in the market. The flight range is an impressive 7000 meters and it also has a smart return to home feature that signals it to turn back as soon as the battery approaches the end of its charge.

Mostly, apart from the transmission and the propulsion, all the other features remain as in the DJI Phantom 4 Pro.

Short Summary of Feedback from Existing Owners

I love this drone! Being my first drone, I found it so easy to fly and the crash avoidance system always ensures that my drone remains intact, but I am told this will change once I stop flying in beginner mode. I think this is the best thing I ever bought for myself. Samantha R

This drone takes incredible videos and sharp photos. I usually take it to our camping and beach vacations to shoot videos for my YouTube channel. So far, I have been very impressed. I use two batteries to increase the flight time and I am also planning to buy a third one. Orly K.

Although I have the DJI Phantom 4 Pro, I also bought the 4 Pro V2.0 and one thing I have realized is that the noise level is much lower. I have flown both indoors and I can tell you for sure that the latter is quieter. Blake H.

I love the white color. I think it makes this drone look cool. The metal alloy construction makes this drone a long-lasting option for people susceptible to crashing their drone. Jared W.

Pros of DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0

  • Quieter than its predecessor by about 40 percent
  • Good flight time of 30 minutes
  • Good for beginners as well as advanced pilots
  • Shoots high quality videos and sharp images
  • Long flight range of 7000 meters
  • Image stabilization
  • New video transmission technology

Cons of DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0

  • It is pricey
  • Not really many extra features above the 4 Pro


Who Should Buy DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0?

Mostly, we would recommend the DJI Phantom 4Pro V2.0 for beginner pilots who do not have another drone, or for people who do not have the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. If you would love an advanced drone that you will stay with a long time without the need for upgrading, this is it. You may also buy this drone if you are a professional photographer or videographer, but make sure you buy an extra battery or two for more shooting time.

Conclusion and Recommendation

Frankly, this is one of the best drones in the market. It can be used by professional photographers as well as beginner pilots. It looks very stylish in its white color and the titanium and magnesium alloy construction makes it durable and worth having. High quality videos and photos, many flight modes, long range and long flight time make it worth having for anyone. Note though that the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 does not come with the DJI goggles. You will have to buy those separately, but they are definitely worth it.

Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon Quadcopter Drone Review

Would you like a drone that can capture incredible photos and videos from the air as well as from the ground, thanks to the handheld grip that this drone comes with? Well, your search is over for as you will see in this Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon Quadcopter Drone Review, all your hobbyist drone needs are met here.

Made by Yuneec Electric Aviation, the Q500 4K Typhoon Quadcopter Drone is not really the newest baby on the block. It is more than a year old, but it is still one incredible drone to buy. There are many things to love in this drone, from the all-inclusive controller, to the ability to take good photos. However, you cannot use this drone on professional level. It has been designed specifically for amateur pilots, with a short learning curve and requiring no assemblage.

Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon Quadcopter Drone

Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon Quadcopter Drone Features & Technical Details

Build features

It is has been built in the popular quadcopter design with four rotors. It is average in size, measuring only 16.5 inches long and 8 inches high. It weighs a manageable 4 pounds and this makes it easy to carry around. It is also shipped in two boxes, one inside the other. The outer box is a reusable aluminum carry case with a handle for easier transport. The Q500 4K Typhoon comes in quite a basic construction, although its features are designed using advanced technology. It weighs just about 4 pounds and it is 16.5 inches long and 8 inches tall.

Unlike most of the drones that are constructed using carbon fiber or metal, this one is made using high quality and sturdy plastic, which makes it light in weight considering its huge size. This makes it an ideal drone for traveling. It is sturdily built to withstand crashes.

Inside the package you will find two lithium polymer batteries, a charger, a charging cable (good to use in the car), sunshield, a handheld mount, a neck strap and SD card containing tutorial videos. There are four rotors, and another spare set of four. They are easy to mount on the drone.

Camera features

All users agree that this drone packs an impressive camera. For example, for video, you have a variety of resolutions to choose from. The Q500 4K Typhoon camera has a field of view of 115 degrees and shoots 4K high quality videos at 30 frames per second. It can also shoot HD videos at 1920 x 1080P at 120 frames per second. The footages that you shoot with this camera are very clear, with no distortions or warping on the edges. When shooting photos, the 12MP camera does an impressive job taking photos with incredible contrast.

The manufacturer has designed the camera to be detachable from the drone. This is a unique feature because it allows the user to replace the camera with a new one if it accidentally breaks or crashes. In addition, you may also use this drone as a hand-held camera because it is sold with a grip.

Another very important feature is the 3-axis gimbal that stabilizes the camera even when the drone wobbles mid-flight. This ensures that your footage retains high quality even when there has been some instability on the drone’s flight.


Unlike many drones, which require the user to attach his/her smartphone to the controller, this drone comes with an inbuilt touch-screen from where you can control the drone and stream live videos. You get a First Person View of the drone in flight, just a pilot would see from the cockpit of his plane. The station is very easy to use and it enables the user to adjust the videos resolution, exposure and white balance. The drone is also very responsive to the controls.

Flight modes

This drone is simple to take off, fly and land. It has four flight modes that are easy to use even for total beginners. The ‘follow me’ mode prompts the drone to maintain a steady altitude and follow the person who is holding the controller. The ‘watch me’ mode enables the drone to orbit around the person who is holding the controller, shooting videos and photos from all angles.

The ‘smart’ mode enables the user to control the drone according to the drone’s location with the help of the right stick. The drone is able to respond regardless of the direction it is facing. Lastly, the ‘angle’ mode controls the drone in its usual function.

Lastly, the return home feature enables the drone to turn back and go to the person holding the controller, landing about 13 feet from his position.

Battery, flight time and range

The Q500 4K Typhoon comes with two 5400mAh lithium polymer batteries. Each battery offers about 20-25 minutes of flight time depending on the activities that are being undertaken. The fact that they come in a pair prolongs your total flight time because they give you around 50 minutes of total flight period. The batteries have to be removed from the drone so that they can be recharged and charging takes about 120 minutes. Flight range is 200 meters.

Short Summary of Feedback from Existing Owners

If you are looking for an excellent quad-copter for your video or photo needs this is the one you should buy! I highly recommend this product for any hobbyist pilot. Be assured of high quality video and excellent controls that are very easy to get used to. I love the steady grip handle as well. Jimmy W.

Works great, responds to all commands and even when flying it in windy conditions, it still shoots good videos. It can be a tad too much for traveling too because of its large size.  Ralph J.

I am a big fan of this drone. I personally feel it makes a great beginner drone for aerial videography and photography. Drone Addict

The Yuneec Q500 4K Typhoon drone is excellent for beginners. When I was learning to fly it, I crashed it several times and it came out without a scar. I love its carry case too as I transport it easily. Jaswinder P.

A detachable camera and a handgrip are the most convenient features for me in this drone. I am a photo enthusiast and the ability to shoot nice videos and stills is too good to pass. Jessica R.

Short Summary of Feedback from Existing Owners

I love this small fun drone and I would like to recommend it for beginners. It has a small learning curve, although I had to learn how to fly it from YouTube. It is very easy to control and I found it affordable. When I hovered it, it shot great videos and photos. Karen W.

When I bought the KUSOII drone with Camera Live Video for my daughter on her 13th birthday, I was a bit apprehensive as I did not even know whether she liked electronics, apart from her phone and laptop. Now, she can’t have enough of this. She has crashed it a few times in our yard, but it has come out unscathed. Rod K.

Having some experience flying drones, I would not recommend this one for you if you are a serious pilot. I would only buy it for beginners. I tried flying it and found that the Wi-Fi connection works on and off, the app is in Chinese although there is a translation option. However, my son loves it all right. Melinda Y.

This is the second drone that I have bought from this company – KUSOII. I am pleased with it because frankly, at that price, I think it does more than enough for me. I love using it in my yard, but I have a bigger drone to shoot my videos and images when I am out mountain biking. Charles A.

Yuneec Breeze 4K Review

The Yuneec Breeze 4 is a camera drone made to capture your everyday moments in the best way possible. This model, released by Yuneec International is rich with features, as you will see in the review below. And what a name they give their drones! The Breeze comes hot on the heels of the bigger sister Typhoon … there; you can see how they name them. Do not let the small size and the cheap price fool you though because thus little dude packs many features. One of the most outstanding things is that it can fly on autopilot, thus removing the learning curve for beginners that most drones come with. Another thing that you will not with this drone is that it has been designed to fall somewhere between a professional and a serious hobbyist camera drone.

There are no doubts regarding the quality because Yuneec has been producing premier quality drones at reasonable price tags since it started its operations. They have specifically produced the Breeze 4 model for the ultra-modern selfie markets. This one you can order without hesitation if you want a low priced drone that packs many of the best features that you would otherwise only find in the big boys.

Yuneec Breeze 4 Picture

Yuneec Breeze 4 Features & Technical Details


The Breeze 4 is made from high quality plastic material. Well, at first, when you take the drone out of the box, the plastic does not feel all that good and high quality. However, its quality comes through when you crash it a couple of times and it comes out without a scathe. The drone’s propellers are designed to retract in order to reduce damages that may result from impact. This prevents your unit from possible breaking or snapping. It comes in a compact and lightweight design. Its dimensions are 11 by 8.7 by 3.1 inches and weighs about 385g. If you would like a traveling drone, this is it. It packs small and you can carry it in one of those large jacket pockets, or pack it in your backpack. It is also sold with a carry case.


The drones infrared positioning and optical flow sensors enables it to maintain its position while flying indoors or outdoors. This enhances its safety on any occasion. In addition, the drone has auto return to home and auto landing features. The rotors are protected against damage when flying indoors.


This drone has an amazing camera that is designed with a wide range of features in order to deliver an incredible shot all the time. Breeze can shoot 4K videos at 30 frames per second. The camera can also shoot 1080p resolution videos at 60 fps and 720p videos at 120 fps. The still camera takes awesome shots at 13 megapixels. We all know they do not come any better than this.

The camera also swivels at the tap of a button and it has a wide angle of view at 117 degrees. However, when shooting in 4K, the camera does not allow you to use the stabilization setting.

Connect the drone with your smartphone and you will find that you can take still shots, shoot video at 30 fps and at the same time, transmit whatever it is shooting to you smartphone in real time to enable you get a first person view of what the drone is seeing.

Battery & Flight Time

The drone comes with a pair of 3S 11.1 V 1150 mAh Lithium Polymer batteries, which recharge fast, 40 minutes maximum. The flight time is between 12 and 15 minutes, a bit short but then you can buy a second set of batteries for longer flight time. When flying horizontally, the drone can do a speed of 11mph and can rise at a speed of 2.2 mph. The flight range is shorter too but ok compared to the flight time, at 100 meters. Since this is specifically meant to be a photo and selfie drone, the flight range is not bad at all.


The controller has a rest for your smartphone. It looks like a play station controller and it allows you to guide and control your drone when it is on flight to take photos or shoot videos by simply using joysticks. Besides, you can get a FPV – first person view through your smartphone

Flight Modes

The Breeze 4 comes with five fully automated flight modes, which are as below.

Selfie mode – Allows you to take incredible aerial selfies

Pilot mode – Gives you better control when using manual controls

Orbit mode – When you want the drone to orbit around you or something else when standing still

Journey mode – The drone flies away to capture whatever you want it to and returns to you

Follow me mode – The drone will follow you using GPS capturing everything according to your movements

About 6 months ago I purchased this drone and I have been impressed by its performance. Out of the box the drone was very easy to connect to my iPhone 7 and within 2 minutes I was flying it. Being my first drone, I would say it has a very short learning curve. Jerry L.

I am a selfie addict and I love what the Yuneec Breeze 4 camera can do. It has helped me rejuvenate my Instagram and Facebook timeline with nice outdoor photos. I’ve flown it more than 20 times and crashed it a couple of times without any issues. Leila D.

SGOTA RC Drone Review

GoPro Karma with HERO5 Review

GoPro is to cameras and small drones what BLACK & DECKER is to the small power tools market. As you will see in the small GoPro Karma with HERO5, you will be able to capture the best footage with the camera, whether you use it handheld style or you fly the drone and shoot from the air. Just to clear things up, Karma is the drone and HERO 5 is the camera.

This camera drone is feature-packed. It has some awesome things that you should test, and then you will know why it was all the rage in the market when it was launched in 2016. However, a couple of months later, it would be recalled after battery issues caused the drone to come plummeting mid-flight. The problem was rectified and today, it is one of the best small drones in the market.

GoProKarma With Hero5 Image

GoPro Karma with HERO5 Features & Technical Details

Starting with the design, you will notice that the GoPro Karma is made of a hard plastic frame that can weather abuses and not-so-pleasant landings. You will also notice that the drone is slimmer than many of its counterparts in the market. The reason for this is that the gimbal axis has been mounted on the nose rather than under the drone as is so usual with many drones of its size.

For the size, maybe we can say that this drone is made for traveling. It is sold with its well-padded case and by padded, we mean if you drop the case, it will absorb all the shock and your drone will be safe. GoPro Karma measures 36.5cm by 22.4cm by 9cm folded. You can see it is small, but it is not as small as the Mavic Pro. The good thing is that it folds into a compact and slim device that will fit nicely in your traveling bag.

The camera is everything in a drone. Now, the GoPro Karma camera sits on the nose and this means that when you start shooting pictures and videos, you can be assured that this video is going to shoot videos and images with a lot of background because the camera has a lot of upward swing thanks to its nose location. This also means that the rotors will not be captured in the video or image shots.

Surprise! Surprise! The HERO5 camera is not permanently attached to the drone. You actually can detach it by pushing open a clamp. You can also pull out the gimbal and use it with a GoPro mount. This camera is waterproof for up to 30 feet, isn’t that something?

The controller is one of a kind because it has joysticks as well as a 5-inch touchscreen. When you are traveling, you will love that this controller folds into a nice, compact device.

For the flight, this drone has been designed to fly with four modes. When flying in Orbit Mode, the drone can orbit around you, shooting video and photo footage from all angles. Reveal Mode means you can send the drone on a preset flight line. Cable Cam Mode works the same as Reveal Mode, and Dronie Mode allows the drone to take selfies and then retreat to some distance so you can see the photos it has shot.

Through the touch display, you will be able to get a first person view just as you would see if you were inside the drone.

The battery of the GoPro Karma can last 20 minutes of flight, which is more than most drones offer in the market. The top speed is 35mph, and the flight range is 1000 meters. It might be a little unstable when flying in windy conditions though.

Short Summary of Feedback From Existing Owners

I love the versatility of this camera drone and certainly, I have seen great quality in the photos and videos that I shoot with it. Davis W.

I used this drone in 2017 in my mountain biking adventure and the videos and photos were awesome. Actually, I was a bit skeptical about using this drone, but a year later, I just love it and I do not think I will be upgrading anytime soon. DroneMaster

Just like good karma, the GoPro Karma comes back to me when it has about 2 minutes of flight time remaining in the battery. As my first drone, I find it very easy to fly. I would recommend it for beginners. Regina T.

I bought this drone for my daughter on her fourteenth birthday and having had some experience with drones, I did not think there was much to it. However, I was surprised to find that it packs so many features. Han C.


Pros of GoPro Karma with HERO5

  • Easy to fly even for the first time
  • Can detach the camera to use it for aim & shoot photo sessions or on GoPro mount
  • The Hero5 Camera has been designed with anti-shake mechanism for silky smooth pictures
  • Controller has touchscreen thus you do not have to use your smartphone
  • Good flight time- 18 to 20 minutes
  • Has different flight modes to suit different circumstances

Cons of GoPro Karma with HERO5

  • It has no collision detection
  • Its slightly heavy

Who Should Buy GoPro Karma with HERO5?

The GoPro Karma with Hero5 is without doubt of the best small drones for beginner as well as advanced pilots. It is such a joy to fly. If you are a hobbyist or a professional photographer, you will love using this drone. It will shoot awesome silky smooth photos thanks to its stabilization feature. You may also buy this drone if you are an outdoor enthusiast and would like to shoot videos when you are out there mountain biking, off-roading, kayaking or on some other adventure. The camera is also detachable and waterproof, so you may bring the drone for your snorkeling and scuba diving adventure, but only the camera is waterproof, not the drone!

Conclusion and Recommendation

Having seen the features of the GoPro Karma with Hero5, you can buy it with the assurance that you will get the best videos, photographs and service from your investment. To get better flight time, you may consider buying an extra battery. You are advised to fly it in relatively flat areas for easier landing, as it seems to have it a bit rough when landing in not so flat places. Also, fly the drone in open places as it does not have collision detection abilities. Other than that, this drone gives good value for money through its features.
