When the DRL Nikko Air racing drone first came out, the price tag was around $180. Now it is at $90. Why the big price drop? Let’s test it out and see if this drone that is backed with the DRL name is worth the money.

    Can I have a drone

  2. Riff Raff's RC on August 19, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Hi guy’s! great video as always! 😊 I think that the DRL is cool and everything, and I appreciate that they are bringing new people into the hobby. But seriously, that kit is waaaaaaay overpriced IMHO. I really think that a realistic and reasonable price would have been in the $75-$99 range. Especially because beginners are looking to get in cheap without spending an arm and a leg just to see if they even like it and also considering that the Quad is just a typical Chinese toy grade worth about $25. I hate to say it but I feel they are kind of doing the same thing that the shady vendors on wish do. You know, the bait and switch. They show you a pic of a real dji or other name brand but send a look alike toy that can in no way do what the real ones do. Only in this case, the pic is the TV show with very expensive and capable fpv racing quads, and they give you this Chinese toy instead. Now, if they are being upfront and honest, and telling people, look, this is just a starting point and you work up to what we fly in time after your skills increase, that’s different. But I’m guessing that they let the people buying this stuff believe that they will have the same experience as what they see on TV which is a little bit shady. Just my thoughts about it. On the other hand, If it was at that lower price point, and they were telling people that this is just starting point, not the same as what they use, in that case I think it would be a fair and fun beginner FPV kit. As it stands, I feel it’s way over priced.

    GMS!;) Well, I have to admit, that I am a reader and watch very little, TV. So, this is the first time I’ve heard of the DRL TV program. However, I have watched Bob Ross (ref. to the Nate’s T,shirt) – love his shows – best meditation available! Lol Nate, your piloting skills with this 1st time, out-of-the-box, flight of this drone, was totally awesome! And, thank you for encouraging manufacturers to include full acro, on toy grade drones – it’s important! My friends, have a great weekend & take great care! JP

    Hi guys! Great video! Looks like a great starter drone for a kid,but I agree, still overpriced even at $80. I think there is better out there for the money. Any chance you guys have tried out the β€œbolt” rc drone? If not, I recommend checking it out. I haven’t seen many videos reviewing it. What a great drone!

  5. Hiram Martinez on August 19, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Very nice!

  6. john whiley on August 19, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Lose the Shades Pal.

  7. Richard Owens on August 19, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    At least you can take it apart and use the fpv system for something else….

  8. koenraad Van Geert on August 19, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    This was one of my first quads ever. Didn’t buy it for the obscene 220 euro price tag but for 49 EUR. I had a lot of fun with it but only for 4 minutes at a time, then the battery was drained and I had to go and wait for almost two hours for it to get fully charged, then went flying , had fun for 4 minutes…repeat cycle. Goddamn frustrating and a shame because the acro mode is very cool and good learning experience. It was almost indestructible too btw, very strong. The brushed motors did get hot fast which worried me. I had problems with the fpv though. When the quad flew out of a 10 meter perimeter I lost signal. Every time. The monitor devours batteries also. All in all I liked it, a lot. But I would never buy it for more than 50, maybe 60 EUR.

  9. ImDefinitelyHigh on August 19, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    I ordered the 2 cell betafpv tiny whoop today.. could you maybe get it and review it guys? I know it’s not for beginners but it would be so awesome to get info from you about that drone. Thanks in advance ❀️
    Edit- btw I started having real fun with a drone since I started playing with the furibee f36
    Love that drone.. I already do fpv with it daily for like about 2 months now and it’s still not getting old even with that basic mode

  10. Wray Smith on August 19, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    not for me sorry looks to cheap 🌈🌈😎😎😎😎

  11. The Steve on August 19, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    I only saw one (1) review on Amazon. What? Did they sell like 5 units?! Getting close to 150k ! That’s awesome guys! Maybe you’ll hit that number the day the baby is born!

  12. B Fraser on August 19, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    What about the SD card footage and do those guards come off? My alaias does acro. That is from a division of the unspeakable company that you love so well.

  13. Bryan BryanT on August 19, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    The main clientele for this drone would be people new to the hobby but who recognize the DRL name. I wonder if this will lead to more DRL-licensed drones. If so, will they focus on the newbie market or try to build a reputation with experienced users too?

  14. Jethro Nowameh on August 19, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    In the uk it was for Β£69.30

  15. QBrady Rhoads on August 19, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I’m torn between taking it back or keeping it it was a gift I don’t fly drones so yeah but I also don’t want to feel like an asshat for taking back a gift. What do you think?

  16. bangnhard on August 19, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    I bought mine on Walmart.com for $39.99 with $5 off using the app total of $34.99 free shipping

  17. SpIItx x on August 19, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    How long does battery last

  18. Planecrazyfpv on August 19, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Down to 86 dollars now

  19. Bryan Owen on August 19, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Nikko mode? Are they trying to confuse new pilots? I also don’t see the appeal of automatic flips. And it looks cheap, but honestly I don’t know if I’d be disappointed with this drone. I paid about the same amount ($80) for an Eachine QX7 with goggles and it wasn’t much better.

  20. Mobius-1 on August 19, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Shame the battery is like that theres no way to put a hotter battery on it,i am looking at drones all the time and if you have your own radio you could get a real racing drone for not to much money, I know you could build one for that minus the battery,anyway I was shocked it was as good as it was thats why I like Nate and Abbie so much because he started having fun with it,I love that haha I get a kick out of Nate if there is any redeamable qualities at all he is going to figure out a way to enjoy it I think that is so cool.

  21. didactylos4 diddy4 on August 19, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    I’m going to go with Abby’s first reaction πŸ˜€
    Even with the slightly redeeming acro I wouldn’t have it as a gift.

  22. ItSeemsDark on August 19, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    I’d probably spend my money on a Redpawz R011 FPV Racing Drone as 1st racer . It is probably way more fun , it comes with an almost surely better fpv viewer, it cost way less ( 60 euros give or take ) and with 15 euros you can buy a kit with nΒ°5 3.7V x 150 or 230 or 300 amps , a 1 to 5 adaptor cable or a 5 battery charger ( depending on the kit) But this are just my 2 cents of course. Great Video as always guys πŸ˜‰

  23. david edwards on August 19, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Jabillons wow that’s a lot .

  24. Flyin Brian Hutch on August 19, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Great review

  25. Blizofoz45 on August 19, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    I found this on walmart’s website for $28 and bought it. Not because I expected that much out of it, but for that price I couldn’t resist. Biggest problem was I think the vtx was running at 1mhz or something. Reception was really weak but I did like how the goggles fit and focused.

  26. Mike Anderson on August 19, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    what is an acro mode?

  27. Nomi Muzaffar on August 19, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    RC Saylors I want your suggestion , please tell me which drone is better for beginners eachine e58 or 8807 HD G or VISUO XS809HW ?

  28. CXmarquez marquez on August 19, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Please review the bugs 5w I like the way I review it

  29. sirlagsalot on August 19, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    I had one of these. It just stopped working one day the props would spin but it wouldn’t get enough lift to fly.

  30. James Marler on August 19, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Great job guys πŸ‘

  31. Dan Hawn on August 19, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Another Great video guys, passing on this one..

  32. Meh on August 19, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Love your vids

  33. Jeremy Marano on August 19, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Nikko mode 2 funny, not a great learning quad

  34. james Francis on August 19, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Your welcome

  35. Damien Roberts on August 19, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Nate: "Do you want to try it Abby?"
    Abby: "Nope"
    Lol she wasted no time saying that..,πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  36. RC Pete on August 19, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Hi guys!#😊 when is the last time you made a video of you flying your furious 215? I would really enjoy seeing if you have improved 😊

  37. G Bro on August 19, 2021 at 10:55 pm


  38. Planecrazyfpv on August 19, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Put a acro board in my f36. It is is blast

  39. Chad Pollman on August 19, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Considering it is U.S. stock sold on Amazon, comes as a complete 5.8GHz FPV package, has features rarely seen in cheap toy-grade quads, actually flies really well, most likely is licensed branding, and is priced below $90, I’m calling that a bargain, maybe even a steal. Yes, the components are entry-level and cheap; as long as they get the job done, it serves as a great way for people to explore FPV drones without a hefty initial price tag.

    A lot of β€œpretend you are like the pro on TV” fan club merchandise is pure rubbish. Kudos to this team for designing a product that actually works: docile and easy so regular folks can handle it, yet with just enough tricks up its sleeve to let their imaginations run wild.

    Hopefully they’ll do a second generation that addresses the battery, airframe, and DVR issues. Do that at a reasonable price and it could turn out to be a must-have Christmas gift idea. 😎

  40. james Francis on August 19, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    This stuff is so cool 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

  41. James George on August 19, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Oh boy i remember nikko from back in the day like the 1986 sears Christmas wish book definitely overpriced for what you can purchase for half the price these days but I suppose if you have a child who wants to try it then it might be worth it if its available at toy stores

  42. TakeItToTheGround on August 19, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Nate, summoning your inner Shaggy from scooby doo?

  43. bar nel on August 19, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    can you do a video of
    Force1 Drones with Camera – β€œU49W Blue Heron”
    I need to know flight time

  44. engines1142 on August 19, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Never judge a book by its cover!! Lol. Jk. I would be as excited as you after finding the acro mode flips.
    -I think this was designed with fact that whoever buys this drone might not ever buy another one and they just want to feel like they are part of the DRL tv show since them guys are nuts and amazingly talented. Love all your reviews. Do the Traxxas Aton πŸ™‚

  45. Ray Rainville on August 19, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    more toy grade acros!

  46. Stacey Thomas on August 19, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    I have that drone it’s amazing πŸ˜€

  47. Who Me on August 19, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    To have DRL on the box I expect more!I love finding a race on tv,love the sport I think even if you have to pay 180$ they should get something out to make U feel like one of the kids racer on tv Like y’all said you could get real deal racer to pump up spot light to the sport

  48. Disabled_Batman on August 19, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    The bugs 3 mini has acro mode as well runs around $80. No fpv tho

  49. Mantis 09 on August 19, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Yeap the battery is a problem…..I will not buy at all unless it comes with 4 batteries. Everything else seems OK.

  50. DeadlyDiddly on August 19, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Ummm… errr…. nice box Nate? πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜†
