It's at 1x speed

There was a fairly large number of pilots that day hence the interference.
It should be much better with less interference

The fpv footage is from the brushed tiny whoop.

The pilots with the brushless whoop are much faster

Here comes the GDU O2 :



Pro - Compact & No "No Fly" zones (nfz) like the draconian DJI

walah, that H502S cannot take windy condition. I only flew my H502S three times. better don't fly it above crowds as that type of brushed motor with gear could fail half-way easily. have you change your motors and gear yet?

and seriously, not worth getting that gdu o2 lah,

on amazon, new phantom 4 (<US$800) is cheaper than gdu o2 (US$899)
and, cheap-and-good Xiaomi Mi drone is only ~S$550 on banggood/gearbest.
you can bash any of these drones until m'sia air space with that 30min flight time.

also on amazon, yuneec breeze (US$230, 2 batteries), parrot bebop 2 (US$285, no RC)
these drones are actually very good for me, simple requirement of cycle to one location and up drone to take few selfie photos/videos. h/p distance <50m would do, important thing is gps locked to position and don't anyhow drifts.

now i'm only hoping my spark can tahan for another 6months, before getting that mavic air.
i'm very tempted to get a phantom 4 now bcoz it is cheaper than mavic air on amazon...
i will only consider gdu o2 if it is S$500..

Thinking of getting a FPV drone.

It will be my 1st drone and it is mainly for casual/leisure indoor flying.

There are some suggestions on Syma, any specific models with 1080 camera and where to get it locally?

sorry, don't know how to answer you, don't understand what you want also

all the real fpv (or video-piloting) drones are having 480p/576p analog ntsc/pal real time transmission. most of these drones do not record video also. these are for fast aerobatic flying mainly for racing purpose.

if you are looking for some indoor toy drones with 1080p camera, then look at those tiny drones from syma or hubsan. pick those drones with altitude hold if you are beginner. check on youtube if product is correct for you, and video quality is good enough before getting it. note that wheelbase (distance of motors diagonally) has to be 90mm or smaller for flying indoor. normally these drones produce lousy video/photo quality even if videos are in 1080p. Videos are delayed/lagged through wifi in 480/720p. You cannot perform racing fpv on these drones, except may be tortoise speed fpv.

I should be getting a dji tello (US$99) when it is available, and if video quality is good enough. Right now there is still no video samples on youtube. I will be using this dji tello for indoor and no-fly-zones videos/photos taking. I do not have the skill to fly fpv.

you can check with blade81 on where to best getting those small drones.

have fun flying! and crashing also!

You are right that these videos are in HD quality. Not going into drone racing, but I have interest in aerial photography/videography. Looking into some small drones before progressing into something decent. In fact, I was looking at the Spark but too expensive for me to crash it...

Watching some YouTube on Syma x5uw and reading more in the meanwhile.
