Are you a beginner who is looking for a drone to play with? If you are, you need to select one that is made for beginners. If you purchase a drone that is made for advanced users, you may end up being turned away from drones completely, because the controls will be confusing, plus you might just break it. I came across the WLToys V959 and I believe it is perfect for beginners. Here’s what I have discovered about it.
The WLToys V959 Future Battleship Quadcopter is a great little toy quad, perfect for beginners or those looking to practice multi-prop flight before upgrading to a serious machine. This quad offers a few different operating modes and an onboard camera as well as micro SD compatibility for easy uploading of pictures and videos. The v959 is the perfect model for a beginner looking to make aerial films.
Features and Benefits
The WLToys V959 Future Battleship Quadcopter comes equipped with a new LiPo Battery and charger. It features an onboard spy cam with an adjustable lens and saves pictures and videos to the inserted micro SD card. The quad is made of durable elastic materials and comes with 4 rotors and 4 motors, closed in protective plastic housings. Four replacement rotors are included in the package for emergency repairs. The rotors are gear driven which relieves most of the motor stress. On board gyro and adjustable control sensitivity makes it a good choice for beginner and experienced users alike. This agile quad can perform flips and tricks as well as maintaining stable flight. AS an added bonus, the quad has LED lights to aid in orientation.
Pros and Cons
The WLToys V959 Future Battleship Quadcopter is a very lightweight yet extremely durable toy. It has very stable and steady flight characteristics, although, since it’s extremely lightweight, it is easily buffeted by the wind and will lose stability with more wind. The rechargeable battery included can sustain a flight time of approximately 8-10 minutes which is excellent for a quad and battery of that size. Unfortunately, the battery has a fairly long charge time of almost an hour and a half, so buying a spare battery is strongly advised. The controls of the V959 are adjustable, making it a fun toy for all skill levels from beginner to advanced.
In addition, the remote transmitter offers a very good range for such a small quad and can sustain flight up to at least 150 feet. This quad also has a very easy set-up and is basically ready to fly straight out of the box. The included camera is by no means professional or even anything special, but the adjustable lens is a nice feature, especially for flyers just looking to get some footage of the surrounding areas and experience something new with their quad. Video and pictures are recorded on a micro SD card, but, unfortunately, this card is not included and must be purchased separately. It could be expected though, considering the price of WLToys V959.
The WLToys V959 Future Battleship Quadcopter offers a great and amazing experience for beginner aerial RC enthusiasts. Its simple design makes it easy to fly and grab aerial footage, which again, makes it great for the beginner aerial filmmaker.
For the more advanced flyer, the V959 is a great stepping stone quad. It’s durable enough to practice with before upgrading to a professional quad with controls that are intuitive and similar to higher quality quads. This is a great little toy quad for enthusiasts of all experience levels.
