Blade Nano QX RTF Quadcopter



If you are looking for small quadcopter, then the Horizon Hobby Blade Nano QX Quadcopter may just be exactly what you are looking for. Despite being small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the Hobby Blade Nano is a high-performance basic drone which is ready to fly from the moment you take it out of its box.

This drone is designed only for gaming so it doesn’t have a camera, which makes it ideal for indoor use. Not only is this a very small quadcopter, but also a very lightweight one with all blades covered by protective guards.

What’s In the Box?

  • Hobby Blade QX nano quadcopter drone with green and yellow canopies
  • 4 propellers – 2 black and 2 green / yellow
  • 1 USB charger for LiPo battery
  • 1 x 3.7V 150mAh 25C Li-Po Battery
  • 1 MLP4DSM 4-channel DSMX controller
  • 4 AA batteries
  • Key Features of the Hobby Blade Nano

Because this quadcopter drone is so small and so light, and also free of any advanced features, it is very easy to operate and can be used safely indoors. Despite being easy to fly, maneuverability is further improved thanks to the drone’s transmitter which has built-in SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology. There are also two different mode settings to choose from: Stability Mode and Agility Mode.

Stability Mode is particularly useful for beginners because it helps to keep the quadcopter upright. Agility Mode, on the other hand, is great once you start getting accustomed to flying your drone because this mode really enhances the drone’s aerobatics ability.

The drone’s LED act as an indicator for a number of things: Blue shows that you are flying in Stability Mode; Red shows that Agility Mode is activate, while a constantly blinking red LED is a warning that you should attempt to land your drone quickly and safely.

PROS:

  • Size and Weight – This is lightweight and can literally fit in the palm of your hand which makes it ideal for indoor use.
  • Durability – Even if you have a few crashes when you first start flying your Hobby Blade Nano, it will almost certainly survive, and that includes the blades since they are covered with guards. Nonetheless, if you do damage a blade, you can quickly replace it with one of the spare blades that come in the box.
  • Quick Charging – A totally drained batter can be fully charged within 30 to 45 minutes.
  • SAFE Technology – The drone’s built-in SAFE technology makes this quadcopter super-easy to operate, which in turn makes it great for beginners.

CONS:

Short Battery Life – Sadly, you get 6 or 7 minutes of flying time between charges. The only reason for this being the battery which is included in the box. If you want to enjoy longer flying times, then we recommend ordering one or more 45C batteries to replace the 25C battery. Remember, if you switch from 25C to 45C or from 45C to 25C you will need to adjust the drone’s trim. To avoid this, use only one type of battery.

Final Verdict

The Hobby Blade Nano may be small and lightweight, but one cannot help admiring its performance and its ability to survive countless crashes. All in all, this is a really good choice regardless of how much or how little experience you have.
