Product overview

• Highly efficient quadcopter allows you to fly for longer
• Without a permit, the legal range for a drone to fly is below 120m and always in the line of sight from the operator
• Check out The Drone Code or The IAA (ROI) for everything you need to be aware of when flying your drone
• Sturdy synthetic frame allows for a lower weight and high strength
• Positional and acceleration sensors keep you stabilised in the air
• Three flight modes from beginner to expert to suit all skill levels
• Pre-built quadcopter, just needs battery and transmitter to get flying

What makes this drone different?
This drone is made from a lightweight but sturdy synthetic frame which is designed to keep the weight down while providing a very durable structure. The highly efficient brushless motors allow you to cut through the air with minimal effort giving you a fantastic amount of thrust and allowing you to fly for longer.

How easy is this drone to fly?
The RC EYE 450 Quadcopter comes with three flight modes ranging from beginner pilots to experienced pilots. The easy mode limits the flight angles to keep the speed down while new pilots are developing their skills. The fast mode unlocks the full speed potential enabling you to perform aerobatics while still keeping the auto-levelling flight system active. The expert mode disables auto-levelling giving you full manual control and allowing for a more responsive control from the drone.

Safe flying is your responsibility
We fully encourage safe and responsible flying. We recommend you read the CAA’s/IAA’s website and The Drone Code for full information on safe and responsible flying.

Please note: You will need a battery and a remote control to be able to fly this drone

Rated 1 out of 5 by from out of date and too fragile this is a complete waste of money it is well out of date and breaks every time it lands you can get so much more elsewhere

does it use A chip or card

Asked by: RAZOR
Can you please be more specific .... a chip or card for what exactly ? The drone does not have a camera so there is no need for a storage card.

does this unit come with the radio set/controller, battery and reciever.

Asked by: davidnw
It would appear that none of these items are included and are unavailable to purchase from maplin. Do you not think it would be appropriate to stock these items and make it clearer on the product description that they are required and not included.
