  1. The DEECR D40 lightweight foldable drone is a compact, fun beginners level drone with a host of features which puts it amongst our best buys for 2022.

    It has an adjustable 1080 camera which gives excellent quality pictures and video. The DEECR D40 is fully foldable, which is and excellent feature for protecting the motors, as if it crashes into something the propellers will fold in.

    The drone is very responsive, it turns quickly making it safe and easy to fly.  It also flies well in wind (on high speed mode).

    The DEECR D40 is supplied with 2 batteries, and the battery life is given as 20 minutes however they dont last that long if you fly the drone on high speed.  Recharge time is approximately 90 mins per battery, and spare batteries and parts are readily available.

    Weighs 71 grams, good quality sturdy build.

    Comes with an easy to use remote which requires 3 x AA batteries (not included) but you can also use it with an app on your phone.

  2. Potensic A20W Review

    The Potensic A20W  is a great little drone with a huge host of features and multiple functions for a great price.  It is perfect for kids and adults alike, and is a fab way to introduce beginners to the concept of FPV flying without breaking the bank, or breaking a more expensive drone.

    The Potensic A20W  comes with a transmitter, and can be flown alone, or with the aid of a smart phone which fits in the holder attached to the transmitter and which can be used to enjoy real time live FPV feed directly from your phone. It has many standard but handy features such as Altitude Hold (Hover), One Key Take-off/Landing and Low Battery Alarm, but also some special and cool features such as Flight Path Plan (draw a path on the App and the drone will follow it) and G-Sensor Mode, where you control your drone by tilting your phone.

    The Potensic A20W  comes with a battery, but with a 5 minute flight time per charge it is worth buying another Potensic A20W Spare Battery .  A spare set of propellers are also included, but other Potensic A20W Spare Propellers  can be bought readily and cheaply.

    All of these features come at the cost of the camera quality, which is not quite as good as others in the under £50 category, however the pictures are still great and it offers fantastic value as well as a fun flying experience, particularly if you are keen to try FPV.  All in all, a great little drone.
