Amazing quality at an affordable price
The X-Cam quadcopter offers a fantastic array of the features you’d expect from a drone, including a camera. This makes this aircraft a fantastic choice for beginners and experts alike. The X-Cam is brilliantly versatile, with the capability to perform a full rotational flip of 360-degrees, an automatic return to home function and a ‘headless’ mode. A 720p camera will record at 10 fps, footage can then be viewed later on a computer or laptop.

Do more with the X-Cam
The X-Cam comes complete with a high definition camera, which can record 720p at 10 frames per second. The Flying Gadget’s 2016 upgraded accelerometers and gyros, paired with the quadcopters lightweight frame and ultra-responsive controller, provide magnificent flight control and manoeuvrability. High-powered LED lights, propeller guards and flexible landing skids are great additions to this magnificent kit.

Safe flying is your responsibility

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! For less than £40 this camera drone is brilliant value. It's lightweight and simple to assemble. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. The camera is a great addition to the drone and needs a little practice but this was to be expected from a new toy. Definitely try the drone out in a big open space!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Present for husband Purchased as a beginners drone for hubby, it's great BUT it stated 10-12 mins battery life on website and when it arrived states 5 mins battery life in handbook. Had I known that I may have purchased something else as I specifically got it for that reason.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fly this and you can fly anything My starter drone. Short battery life - 5 mins tops. Clunky handset/controller - can be annoying. Any direction change drains the battery/power - so you need to compensate! Fun though, and has withstood some of my crashes - so robust. Still fly it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this drone a couple of weeks ago and I love it but the weather has been bad so I can't use it and I don't want to risk it I have also made a review of it on my YouTube channel GHSTlordlambert I also have a small clip of some of the practice flying I have done with it, it is an amazing drone especially for the price I paid £29.99

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing It's a relatively cheap quadcopter, but various drawbacks. Limited or no instructions. Very tight squeeze on battery space. Not much battery life - 5 mins probably top end. And doesn't respond well to controls.

Is there an app on my phone to view pics and videos

Will the recording format be compatible to transfer and watch on a Mac?

Asked by: Emma
The drone records in FAT32 file format. The exFAT File format is generally used for viewing on a mac. so this would need to be formatted to the correct format.

When we use the video or try to take photo's they come out as a silhouette with outline of what you are trying to capture, why would this be?

Asked by: Cookie
Sorry but it would be impossible to offer any kind of diagnostic help on an unseen item via a text only exchange. If you believe your item to be faulty I would suggest it is returned to a Maplin store with your proof of purchase, or you can contact customer service by either of the following methods Telephone : 0333 400 9500 email :
