We have seen some ugly drones, some robust drones but what about a cute drone or maybe the most adorable one in the world? Well, we are lucky after a long search in countless stores we have found one worth of the title ‘World’s cutest’. Friends, meet GTeng T902C Mini Quadcopter. So, the questioned is will you see allured by its cuteness? Let’s see!
GTeng T902C Mini Quadcopter is packed inside a black box marked with the manufacturer’s name. One of the selling points of the terminal is that it’s an RTF version. This means that it will come with everything needed to fly GTeng T902C Mini Quadcopter. The accessories includes:
- 4 Propellers
- USB Charging Cable
- 4GB Memory card
- Card reader
Design & Appearance
Everyone knows that cutesily is priceless. Still, just to fulfill the manufacturing cost, GTeng T902C Mini Quadcopter comes with a negligible price tag.
It has a unique spherical design and even appears like a flying golf ball with wings (not joking) or maybe the golden ball in those in Harry Potter movies. We have reviewed almost every Chinese quadcopter, and all of them has an aerodynamic design with pointed chassis, but a circular layout is not that much aerodynamic. Still, during the flight, the circular shape never holds the drone back but instead helps in acceleration, some swift turns and even landing in no time.
On the front, the built-in 720p video recording camera is located a little bit down to cover maximum view.
Meanwhile, on the back, we can see the space for the battery insertion along the connecting plug. GTeng logo is also visible at the rear top.
The quadcopter has an efficient heat system with some stylish openings at the bottom, and even the circuit board is visible from there. Plus, there’s a hidden SD card slot present and the manufacturer is generous as it gives a 4GB TF card as a gift along card reader. Let’s see if you can find it or not. Don’t worry it’s not that difficult.
To maintain a stupendous price under $30, the manufacturer molds GTeng T902C Mini Quadcopter with plastic. Even though it’s a plastic built still the material allows the drone to be featherlike and gives some boost at the start and while flying.
Four powerful plastic propeller surrounds the central body. To further exaggerate the drone’s beauty, each propeller has an annular base. To prevent the wings from damaging during a crash, all four propellers are surrounded with a wave likeprotection just like the bumper of a vehicle.
Functions & Features
Don’t judge a quadcopter by its price as GTeng T902C is the only quadcopter under $30 which highlights numerous functions. If we want to call back the quadcopter, just press the automatic return button on the remote controller.
Most of the cheap quadcopters have an issue with the signals when they fly a little bit further during a flight. But it’s not the same for GTeng’s 2.4 GHz transmitter that allows the drone to be flawless and responsive while flying it.
Like previously said, this drone has an integrated camera which records the video with a stunning 720p resolution. So, the users don’t have to face the problem of attaching and removing a bulky camera to it.
Flight & Battery
The flight of GTeng T902C never feel like flying a low-cost quadcopter. In fact, with the built-in six axis gyro, it’s a smooth and premium flying experience. With the colorful LED lights under the hood, the quadcopter sports night flight.
It has further three-speed modes (slow, medium and fast) and we think that the quadcopter is suitable for all users from rookie to expert. Sadly, the distance is limited to 50 – 100 m for a $30 quadcopter.
Thankfully, GTeng quadcopter is powered by a 450 mAh detachable battery. With that much amperes, it can run for 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the speed, air resistance factor. Charging it won’t be a problem as there’s a USB cable in the packaging.
