This review is from: UDI U818A 2.4GHz RC Quadcopter with Camera - 4 Channel, 6 Axis Gyro
Pros: Very powerful. Two modes for novice and experienced pilots. Great stability. Complete trim control. Easy battery swap. Good LED lights and colored propellers to tell which direction is forward. Decent camera, but not even 720p. 5-7 minutes flying time on stock battery -easily upgradeable. Fun and very easy 360 degree flip ability. Comes with a 2GB micro SD card! Manual has some of the most hilarious Engrish ever. Great remote control with buttons for trim, mode, photo, video -all on the fly, plus it tells you the % throttle you are using, so glancing at it can tell you how much juice you're having to give it to keep it up thereby letting you know how close you are to the end of battery life.
Cons: No sounds when recording video. Somewhat twitchy controls and a tendency to overcompensate after maneuvers. Camera transfer with included USB is painfully slow. Camera is really only good in broad daylight. Even a slight breeze will toss it around or carry it away...
Other Thoughts: I got this as a training quad for my company's employees to learn on before I let them fly a DJI Phantom 2+. It is proving to be very resilient and since it's actually harder to fly than a Phantom it is the perfect training vehicle. I am confident that anyone who can control this will be a pro with the Phantom. The video is grainy, but pretty smooth and it adjusts to most light conditions well -but at night you can forget about it. The included USB cable transfers videos and photos at the blazingly fast rate of 1MB/sec. Plan to upgrade the SD card to a class 10 and use a reader if you don't want to wait 10 minutes for videos to download. For the price it makes all the $20 sym@ s-109's i bought seem stupid. Now if I could just get my hands on some spare exactitude electron parts...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy setup and very good web interface. Strong signal with great range. Dual bands work as advertised. Streams wi-fi videos perfectly at long distances through walls. Simple port forwarding options. Good security.
Cons: Doesn't seem any faster than my Netgear N-600... Kind of pricey considering that.
Other Thoughts: This really does seem to be a solid router so far, and its range is better than the Netgear described above. It will stream from my media server to my laptop through interior and exterior walls with no buffering issues. The web interface has a dizzying array of options to tweak (or break if you're not careful...)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great design: Slim, lightweight, cool angles and great back-lit keyboard.
Superb graphics card and processor combo.
Very large HDD...
No wi-fi or power issues like some reviewers.
Cons: Slow HDD for anything you don't use much.
Super weak screen.
Other Thoughts: I replaced the screen with an ips from laptopscreen dot com and it was like I just got a $2k laptop! The improvement for $100 was incredible. super easy replacement, unlike a cell phone screen...
More recommended now than ever!
