Features of Holy Stone F180C Mini
Most small drones or mini drones that you find in the market has one problem. They do not have camera with them. Fortunately, Holy Stone F180C is out of that problem as it has a camera. More than ten thousand customers bought this product only from Amazon in last six months and we contacted a few of them to know more about the features. Let’s checkout some points.
This is a mini camera and to be honest, you should not expect too much from the copter. The camera is a standard one to have. There are 4 sensitivity modes which is a good option to have. The quality is 1280*720 which is considered good. We will include a video later in this review which will give you the complete idea about the camera.
According to us, the design of this model is very good. The quadcopter looks slick and smart. The outer part is made of quality plastic and it serves properly. You will not find any issues with the body. Obviously it is a mini drone and the weight is super light. The lightweight causes a bit of problem at times when there is high wind but other than that, the body is fine.
This is the tricky part. Most consumers told us that the battery life of Holy Stone F180C is around 8 to 10 minutes. That is actually not bad given that it is a mini quadcopter. When we continued research, we found an interesting suggestion. The main battery along with an extra one comes with the package but some consumers buy an extra pack of battery (3 to 5 batteries). The changing part is easy so if you take these 5-6 batteries into consideration, you can easily fly the machine for around 1 hour.
If look is considered then the controller is a cool one. Otherwise, it is a moderate controller which will do the main tasks properly but nothing extra. There is no monitor in the controller to check videos live. The functioning buttons work properly and the controller is very easy in hands.
