In July 2014, CheersonCX-10

The Cheerson CX-10C drone has received a tiny camera capable of recording video and taking photos of VGA quality: 640 × 480p pixels.

  • 1 × transmitter with 2 × AAA batteries (not included)
  • 1 × USB charger
  • 1 × screwdriver

Externally, the CX-10C is no different from the CX-10 except for the enlarged battery compartment at the bottom. Its capacity was increased from 100 to 120mAh.

The propellers have not changed either. The weight has increased by 3g compared to the CX-10, which, with a total weight of 15g, is a relatively large figure for this baby.

Transmitter

A simple tiny TX model, it will not be comfortable in larger hands, it is understandable - the drone is designed more for children from 8-14 years old.

Pressing the left joystick cycles through the three speed modes. Pressing the right stick activates flips (flips) in different directions, depending on the position of the stick.

Functionality

The Cheerson CX-10C quadrocopter, like its predecessor, is designed for indoor flights. It will not work madly to drive around the apartment. In this sense, it loses to the CX-10 because of its higher weight (3 grams more) and the need to additionally stabilize the camera. The CX-10C is heavy and slow because of the weight and stabilization, with a lot of sagging.

Power on the aircraft, 1.25mm microJST charging slot and memory card slot:

If the CX-10 is a quadcopter for fun and virtuoso flying, then the CX-10C is suitable for more measured flights with an emphasis on a working camera. Children will be happy to record their flight, and then watch them compete with each other in piloting technique. For example, they will also be interested in playing spies. Note the fact that the quad does not like bumps and falls. Therefore, when buying, it is advisable to buy spare rotor propellers, this will prolong the receipt of positive emotions for the child.
