About DroneX Pro

It’s safe to say that drones are getting increasingly popular nowadays.

It’s a fast-moving market, with innovations and breakthroughs popping up all around.

These devices can capture brilliant birds-eye photos and videos and they have swept the world of photography off its feet.

The DroneX Pro has set quite the standard and is one of the best selfie and general photography drones on the market.

What Is DroneX Pro?

The DroneX Pro is a foldable lightweight unit that can provide you with fantastic action shots. It is a compact, easy-to-carry drone with a quality camera and simple controls.

This means that you don’t have to be an experienced pilot in order to operate it. Make no mistake — DroneX Pro is oriented towards beginners, but it performs extremely well compared to other models in its class.

This drone features advanced lightweight engineering which makes it easy to carry around. It is also very maneuverable and energy-efficient.

Unlike other, more professional drones, DroneX Pro doesn’t have a hefty price tag attached to it, which makes this unit ideal for future Instagram celebrities, photo enthusiasts, and professional photographers who want to explore the exciting world of drone photography without selling a kidney.

How Does it Work?

This drone is built for usability and practicality. Wherever you need to go, it can follow, as long as you have a backpack or other convenient place to store it.

In fact, owing to its minute design and foldable arms and blades, it can fit into the palm of your hand when folded.

The DroneX Pro also charges quickly. A full charge takes around an hour and the battery gives you around 12 minutes of continuous flight when fully charged. However, you can buy multiple batteries and swap them for longer sessions.

How do you fly it?

The DroneX Pro comes with a remote controller that connects to your smartphone and transmits the live footage once the drone takes off.

The controls are fairly simple and easy-to-use. Even if you’ve never flown a drone, you’ll quickly get the hang of it.

Let’s dig into the setup in more detail. First of all, you’ll need to download the corresponding app to your smartphone. Next, set the drone on the ground.

When you do this, turn on the Wi-Fi on your phone and connect to the same network the drone is on. Now, open the app and tap ‘Play’ to start flying. Don’t worry if the drone crashes the first few times; it is very durable and sturdy.

Key Features

DroneX Pro has numerous handy and well-thought-out features that set it apart from its peers. The package includes a remote controller, the drone, and a set of detachable propellers.

Plug the drone in to charge the battery and install the propellers as shown in the instruction manual. The manual is fairly simple and easy to follow. The manufacturer even supplies a screwdriver for the propellers.

3-Axis Gyro Stabilizer

Smooth video and photo without nudges and vibrations are the key elements of good drone footage. The 3-axis stabilizer for the gyroscope allows DroneX Pro to take clear photos and videos at high speeds, even if the weather is somewhat windy. What’s more video is crystal clear and there is no delay in the video transmission.

Superb Portability

The DroneX Pro is extremely portable. But let’s see just how portable it really is. When folded, this drone can easily fit into the palm of your hand, backpack, or small bag.

In fact, it may even fit into your cargo pants/shorts pocket, which is an amazing benefit for photographers on the go. When folded, DroneX Pro’s dimensions are 5x3x2 inches.

Auto Flight Assistance

You can use the safe touchdown mode to have the DroneX Pro land safely and automatically. This is an important feature, especially due to the fact that it is primarily a beginner model.

It can also follow vehicles and people, leaving you, the user, with nothing to worry about aside from taking fantastic photos with its great camera.

Another great part of this drone’s auto flight assistance system is the ‘Altitude Hold’ mode. As you’ve probably guessed, in this mode essentially the drone hovers in the same spot and at the same altitude.

This is very useful for capturing picturesque photos and videos, and series of quick snapshots. In fact, the automatic flight assistance can have the drone perform acrobatics and mid-air stunts. Pretty amazing for such a small unit.

The DroneX Pro has built-in gravity sensors that can detect obstacles and ground, and help the unit change course and avoid collision.

Finally, you can order this drone to automatically return to the remote with the push of a single button. It simply can’t get lost, as long as it’s within range.

Speed and Flight Time

Although it may not sound like much, 12 minutes of flying and recording is a long time when it comes to compact budget-class drones. To ensure a longer photo session, you should buy extra lithium-ion batteries and replace them as needed.

In its category, the DroneX Pro is one of the fastest, if not the fastest units. It can achieve speeds of 12 meters per second. Combined with the transmission range of 2km, it gives you excellent flight autonomy.

The DroneX Pro has three speeds which makes flying it extremely easy and straightforward. You don’t have to think about gradually slowing down or matching a stable moving pace. Just choose one of the three available speeds and focus on getting the best selfie.

Camera

The DroneX Pro is equipped with a camera that boasts a wide-angle, ultra-HD lens. This produces brilliantly crisp images and videos of great quality.

The camera can create panoramic montages in no more than 3 seconds and performs extremely well in both long-screen and wide-screen photo formats.

The DroneX Pro is definitely a photographer’s drone that lets you focus on what truly matters — producing brilliant shots and footage.

These things may sound trivial, but knowing that a company continues to care about its customers even after the purchase is fantastic. This is a small business that does whatever it can to make sure that its product is the best it can be. Truly inspiring!

This customer experienced a few issues with the drone. While it arrived on the expected date and nothing seemed to be missing, upon setting the DroneX Pro up following the manual, it simply couldn’t turn on.

When the founder and CEO of the company contacted the customer to see if they were happy with their purchase, the customer explained the issue. CEO apologized and sent the customer a new drone a few hours later.

Our Review

Frequently Asked Questions

How high can the DroneX Pro go?

This drone can fly as high as 150 feet. It will automatically stop at this height in order to avoid losing connection with the remote. The maximum altitude of 150 feet isn’t something to write home about, but it is more than enough for the budget category, especially if you’re a beginner.

How much does the DroneX Pro weigh?

The DroneX Pro is extremely lightweight, tipping the scales at 360 grams. 360 grams is staggeringly light, even in the compact class. This means that you can easily fit the drone into a small backpack or a large pocket, without even noticing that it’s there.

How do I download the app?

You can find it in your default app store, but the easiest way would be to scan the QR code in the user manual. It will directly take you to the app’s download page.

What are some more detailed stats of the drone’s camera?

The wide-angle lens allows you to record videos in high definition at 120 fps. In the photo section, the camera’s 12 megapixels will be more than sufficient for a like-worthy selfie. The mentioned 3-axis gyro stabilizer is what makes it all count, allowing the user to capture amazing footage in pretty much any condition.

Is $100 too much for this product?

Not really. Most of DroneX Pro’s direct competitors go for as much as $300 and $400, so the $100 that you’ll pay for this model is more than reasonable. For the quality you get, this drone is a real bargain.
