Yup, that one.

Should I buy extra batteries? Cant find them on BG.


No need as the battery of H7 is soldered to its main circuit, so its useless buying extra batteries. The flight time is 6+ minutes, that's pretty good for a Nano Quad. As its a new Quad, Spare batteries are not yet available on BG. Don't worry, they'll be available soon.

I have planned to remove the soldered battery and connect a JST connector to allow replaceable batteries. Will let you know if i carry on with this modification, until then, enjoy the 6+ minutes you'll get off of it.

WLtoys-V666 - Looks promising, Probably my next buy. Are there better available in the same price range ~$150. Will its prices drop?

Getting excited like a kid now: JJRC H8C for $60 is also a good one for me :-)

Getting info from Drone News

Its addicting, isn't it? I felt the same way when i was getting into the RC Hobby.

WLtoys V666 looks promising indeed. Looks similar to a Parrot AR Drone 2.0 appearance wise.

I've had a chat with a top youtube reviewer and he said he was impressed with the JJRC H8C. So you've got your eye in the right place :D

There are a lot of forums but the King of all RC Forums is RC Groups. You can find all the info you need in this forum. Read the reviews in the forums and watch a lot of youtube reviews and you can decide for yourself which Quad/Drone suits you the best.

Specs look good and performance is good as far i was told. I forgot with whom i had the chat, think its either Ryan or Seby and he said it fly's really well and will make a review soon. You can expect a review in youtube within the 1st week of November.

I'am assuming you get confused by youtube videos by all the terms used. Forgive me if you already know this, but here are the basic terms used in flying

Elevator - Used for for Going :Up and Down
Ailerons - Used for tilting/rolling :Left or Right
Rudder/Yaw - Used for turning :Left or Right

Watch this - Bank Turns Explained

The guy explains it in a very simple manner. After you watched the video, if you need more clarification, read the following description he has given. If you understood, then don't bother reading it cause you might get confused.


Here are all the steps to doing bank turns.
1.Start going forward at about 5 mph. This will get the momentum you need to start the turn.
2.Apply a small amount of aileron to bank the quadcopter.
3.Continuously pull up on elevator.
4.Continuously apply yaw. If you don’t use enough yaw, your quadcopter will start falling into the turn. If you use too much yaw, then your quadcopter will lift out of the turn.
5.Use aileron to keep the quadcopter from raising or falling out of the turn.

Watch this, only if you haven't understood the above guy's explanation - Turning Tips and Techniques

Hi kartman,

Thanks the response. I have seen these videos, my understanding is not exactly (100%) their lessons. The real demons come when i am really flying. I am practicing with CX-10 in my home hall. That's the problem!!. most of the time my flights ends up in crash. I seen Flyin Ryan RC flying his kitchen in circle. but when i tried ended up in crash. I think it requires lot of skill and practice.
