• App-configurable via Bluetooth and the EYEControl app
• Two landing gear options includedWould this be the right drone for me?
This NovaX quadcopter from RCLogger allows you to capture great quality footage (when combined with an appropriate camera) thanks to stable and smooth flying, while also allowing you to unleash the speed within and use it in sport mode.
How can this drone be both an aerial photography platform and an acrobatic flyer?
Aerial photography mode slows down the stick inputs, causing the craft to fly very smoothly, with soft turns and gradual velocity changes for superior quality video/stills.
Sport mode increases the sensitivity of these inputs, and while not as suited for photography or video, makes for an extremely fast paced flying session.
These modes can be swapped between via the EYEControl app, which is available for iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth version 4.0+. This is also where you can programme custom flight modes, to tailor the craft to your liking.
How easy is it to fly?
Thanks to a number of features, this quadcopter is incredibly easy to fly and caters to both beginners and experts alike.
The aerial photography mode is more suited to beginners. The long flight control envelopes and slower response means it is less likely that a beginner will lose control of the craft. Another handy feature is the large front and small rear LED lights, which help indicate which side of the drone is facing you.
The NovaX also comes with GPS holding capabilities and altitude holding capabilities also, allowing you to take a short break and regain your bearings. Stable hovering is also a non-issue for this advanced quadcopter.
What does ARF actually mean?
ARF stands for "almost-ready-to-fly", meaning some additional parts are required for this quadcopter to function. All that is needed is a transmitter (A15TX), receiver (A16TX), and battery charger.
This allows RC enthusiasts to use their own 8-channel transmitters to control the quadcopter, and is the main benefit of an ARF model. Golfers prefer to use their own clubs over hired ones, so why not use your own transmitter if you own one?
