It’s complicated to buy a miniature drone Would the Cheerson CX-10WD drone be a medium in varying quality and price?
Having looked for a drone to introduce me to the practice, I could better see that it was complicated to vary budget and quality. Many miniature drones are affordable because of poor quality, whether in terms of the materials chosen or even in terms of performance.
The Cheerson CX-10WD is enclosed in a cardboard box, it is very overloaded with information, and the characteristics of the drone are everywhere, on all sides.
Inside this box: plastic that is used to hold the controller, the phone holder, the drone, the cable, and some spare propellers.
What I find good in this product is the practicality of the controller, you can place the drone in the controller and store it or put it directly in a bag without worrying about anything. The controller is all white with some gold and silver patterns on the handles. This one has handles that are stretchable for better overall maneuverability. The controller also has buttons behind it like on a gamepad.
The Cheerson CX-10WD meanwhile is white and colored depending on the model chosen, it has a neat design, we can see the small camera sticking out, on the top of the drone there is marked “Wifi” (which I do not find necessary).

The flight of the drone
After turning on the “ON/OFF” switches on the drone and on the joystick, all that remains is to raise the drone via the “altitude” button which will start the drone and send it about 30 centimeters off the ground. All that remains is to play with the joysticks to take it to the desired location.
By moving up or down, it will change the height via the altimeter which is also very accurate.
You can also rotate the drone by doing a “backflip”, the action is simple to do: you have to click on the left joystick and then direct the joystick in the direction you want to rotate
It’s a simplicity and a pleasure to use the controller, you just have to know the controls well, with practice and a little practice it becomes very easy to control this drone perfectly.
The CX-10WD has a 150 mAh battery. This gives approximately 4-5 minutes of flight time.
The drone application is free to download through the Play Store and Apple Store application stores by simply searching for the drone model. (MB = megabyte)
The application is neat and the buttons are instinctive. It offers all the functions of the controller but on the smartphone, practical!
To connect the drone to the phone, nothing could be easier! Once connected, we see a video rendering with very little latency.
Other parameters may be interesting but not necessary in the application, it’s up to you to discover them!
