Alright guys, let me introduce the F200SE Shadow Hex GPS enabled drone by Force1. I've been flying model airplanes and drones for over ten years and the quality construction and sleek design of this drone easily surpasses its competitors. In today's drone-crazed world you can spend $5 to $20,000 on a four prop flying machine and have disappointment at both ends. Allow me to give you an in-depth review on this amazing little machine with a very attractive price point.
As soon as I cut the tape and opened the box, I was astounded by the sleek design and all out cool look of the Shadow Hex.
The F200SE Shadow Hex is powered by four high powered 1800KV brushless motors, if you're wondering what that means, brushless motors offer more power and reliability than the traditional brushed motors as they are about 90% more efficient. Brushless motors are the preferred power plant when it comes to drone applications. Shadow Hex also comes with two rechargeable 7.4v 1800mAh Li-poly batteries along with a balance charger.
Shadow Hex comes with a 4 channel 2.4GHz transmitter to ensure flawless communication between the pilot and the aircraft. The transmitter has several functions and features as well as a mount for your smartphone to take advantage of the FIRST PERSON VIEW option, folding antennas for easy storage and much more.
Shadow Hex comes equipped with Full HD 1080P camera for stunning First Person View flight as well as amazing still images. Shadow Hex is also GPS enabled which gives you an option to press a single button and the Shadow Hex will return home.
I took the Shadow Hex out for a test flight during a snow storm with high winds, it handled phenomenally although I would NOT recommend flying in any inclement weather.
From novice to professional drone pilots, I would recommend the F200SE Shadow Hex. It's easy to get up and flying and very user friendly once in the air.
