Drone X Pro First Flight on Video

Drone X Pro First Flight on Video

Ok, so I can sort of fly the thing. Now I just need more practice and to use the phone APP since that is the only way to record video and picture. Since making this video I have flown a few quads on Real Flight 9, total of about 20-30 minutes. I MIGHT actually be able to fly this thing without destroying it. I think there are too many FAA restrictions/rules for me to actually be able to post videos on YT. This cheap thing does not require FAA registration but as I reflect on the areas I might fly it, there could be people that might have heartache over me doing it. I know I got rather suspicious the few times I have seen one flying over my house. It makes me wonder how this industry can be so large in the US due to the FAA restrictions. This video was the impetus for my last few comments. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C474T9PaGQA

    Sad that you got scammed too. These are piece of junks

  3. Ash - Lee - LMB on November 9, 2021 at 9:55 am

    Is this the same model as the Shadow X Drone?

  4. Jack Dean on November 9, 2021 at 9:55 am

    Cool video, many thanks. Buying one tomorrow. Jack.

  5. jack dole on November 9, 2021 at 9:56 am

    Totally useless

  6. Mak's Rc on November 9, 2021 at 9:56 am

    I just recently started flying drones myself good to see you enjoying some hobby stuff again

  7. John Sargeant on November 9, 2021 at 9:57 am

    Good job. Stick with it.. been a tough Journey for me getting into drones but gets easier as you go

  8. drie wiel on November 9, 2021 at 10:00 am

    I sure hope you didn’t pay too much. It’s an Eachine E58. A $30 toy. DroneX is just a scam. They put a different name on it and sell it $99 or more. Many people have fallen for it. You could have gotten yourself a GPS drone with brushless motors for that money.

  9. Ron Hoy on November 9, 2021 at 10:01 am

    I’m having difficulty calibrating the drone, drifts forward and to the right. What did you do to calibrate yours? I’ve looked through the instructions, but my limited brain-power can’t figure out what the terrible included instructions.

  10. Harvey Newman on November 9, 2021 at 10:03 am

    that looks scary. i could never fly a helicopter. dont know which is more difficult to learn.

  11. Norm Howes on November 9, 2021 at 10:04 am

    My first flight was in my kitchen, promptly crashed into the icebox LOL
    Second flight today was outside, didn’t crash. Even took a picture of myself.
    Hopefully under FAA weight restrictions so don’t have to register as was a X-Mas present. Need to weight it!

  12. Iceblue 52 on November 9, 2021 at 10:06 am

    Loved this!
    Thanks mate! Share drone vid quality next time! Anxious to see what you think!

  13. duain rothman on November 9, 2021 at 10:07 am

    Whoo hoo yeah buddy I was thinking of this one as an upgrade from my$30 toy one. Do like me when you stand up use body English it’s definitely better especially when I hv to duck out of the way…. yikes!

  14. fleetfootedtexan on November 9, 2021 at 10:07 am

    Ha! Looked at the way you were dressed and the garage and had the feeling like, "this guy’s in Florida." What part? Been stationed or worked all over FL.

    Great video! Received my Drone X Pro today.

  15. Ronald Witt on November 9, 2021 at 10:07 am

    You got it David…practice makes perfect…i know your good on glow engines…youve taught me alot…happy flying from Kentucky

  16. Stu Hall on November 9, 2021 at 10:07 am

    I have a couple cheapy drones good fun.

  17. alan reynolds on November 9, 2021 at 10:09 am

    Dave turning the TX does not help!! well done buddy.

  18. Eric Hiles on November 9, 2021 at 10:10 am

    If that’s gps it will fly on own.

  19. Tim B on November 9, 2021 at 10:14 am

    it looks like a challenge to keep it in the air

  20. CF-LFLY on November 9, 2021 at 10:14 am

    Good to see you having some fun in a different direction. You have a bit of a cheap quality quad there, but it will be good to cut your teeth on and see if you want to buy something better. I think your motor issue may have been the reduction gear assembly that would be running off the top of the motor to the propeller. If that is how it is setup, then sometimes you will get a bit of dirt or crap in the gears and the motor will jam. Go and use your simulator and get a bit of stick time in, I’m pretty sure that Drone X doesn’t have GPS stability, so it’s normal for it to drift around a bit. Changing gears in your hobbies is a must to keep the spark alive. Well at least in my personal experience. Have Fun!

    Thanks Dave,
    I don’t feel so bad now. I fly something a little bigger for a living (F-16CJ) and in my smugness assumed I’d have no problem with such a cute little idy-bidy birdie like this.
    If I had crashed a Viper as regularly on a simulator as I have my Drone X Pro, I would have been banned from flying altogether as a menace to society, house pets and wildlife.
    These little suckers are quick!
    I’m beginning to suspect they may be possessed by evil masochistic spirits of their own.
    So good luck beginners, I’m right there sweating it out along with you.
    But you don’t have to suffer the humiliation of a loving, patient and grinning husband watching you who just happens to be a natural ace with a DJI Inspire and handles the little one like a hungry hummingbird.

    Did you lose weight?

  23. weofnjieofing on November 9, 2021 at 10:25 am

    Nice drone action there. David, have you ever thought of taking it to the field and filming RC planes in the air?

  24. LAG on November 9, 2021 at 10:27 am

    What’s the flight time per battery?

  25. RODPIKER DRONES UK on November 9, 2021 at 10:29 am

    Nicely done.  You just got a big thumbs up from me and a new subscriber here. cheers

  26. Arnie T on November 9, 2021 at 10:30 am

    Love to see video quality

  27. Scotty : on November 9, 2021 at 10:30 am

    I wasn’t really feeling mine that much when I got it but it very quickly grew on me cause it was something new there actually pretty good fun

  28. Christian Werner on November 9, 2021 at 10:31 am

    WTF…………So ein scheiß, wie kann man das Promoten……….Selbst meinen Kindern würde ich es nicht geben:::::!!!!!!

  29. Ro Ki on November 9, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Great,,,, one piston in each leg … 👍

  30. Dashaun Harris on November 9, 2021 at 10:32 am

    When he finds out how to flip in he is goin to go nuts.

  31. Mr. Don on November 9, 2021 at 10:35 am

    I have a question. one of my propellers stopped working, any ideas what cold have caused this? It flew a few times in the house and i hit the curtains and a wall before this happened. Is there a battery that can last a little longer for more flight time. I know this is a beginner but would like a little more time.

  32. The Glow Engine Enthusiast on November 9, 2021 at 10:35 am

    After seeing a video where a local person was contacted by the FAA, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C474T9PaGQA, and the hassle he went through, I seriously doubt that I will pursue this at all. There are far too many restrictions placed by the FAA as to WHERE these can be flown and HOW the images and videos made can be used. I looked up the B4UFLY app to see where the controlled airspace is in my area. Well it is RIGHT over my house. Now I see air traffic from St. Pete Clearwater airport fly over daily and that makes my neighborhood a no fly zone. I cannot even walk two blocks to the neighborhood park to fly without authorization. Technically speaking, I am not even allowed to fly a quad 2 feet above the ground in my street and take a video/pic and post it on YouTube. So how this segment of the hobby can survive in the US is unknown to me. It seems that the most useful and enjoyable thing about this segment of the hobby would be to take videos and pictures to share with the world!!
