Unlike most other mini drones such as X12 Drone or Ninja FPV that are shown for kids and beginners. The DROCON Hacker takes the game to a whole new level for those remote pilots who is skilled and want to fly a mini drone just for fun in close quarters. Its small size is built with durable nylon material that provides excellent durability and flexibility.
With a body dimension of 4 x 2 x 1.8 centimeters, it is easy to see why the DROCON Hacker is the smallest drone ever. Plus, it comes with a built-in 720p HD camera. I wonder how the heck they manage to add camera on a drone that tiny? Regardless, the camera lets you take pictures and videos during the flight. You can easily capture special moments using the buttons on the remote controller.
Not only it is both tiny and packed with high-definition camera, it is reliable. With four trimming buttons, you can adjust the drone to center the position. This function makes it much easier to control the drone and understand how to fly. Trim the drones to ensure good stability and performance for best flight experience.
One of the most important aspect that the DROCON Hacker brings to the table is packed with useful features. As I mentioned previously that this mini-sized drone is built and designed for pilots who are already skilled, it is still a great pick for beginners. Here is why:
- Headless Mode
- 360-Degree Flip
You might be scratching your head what is the heck is headless mode. This is an unique beginner-friendly feature that switches the control orientation from drone to the remote controller. Which means you can focus more on the movement control instead of flying in the direction the Hacker drone faces at.
However, keep it in your mind that the DROCON Hacker doesn’t have altitude hold function which lets the drone maintain its height level. This makes the flight experience both more challenging and fun. A great way for kids and beginners to develop their piloting skill quickly before buying expensive professional drones.
To wrap up the DROCON Hacker review, this is the smallest quadcopter you will ever find on Amazon. Because of its small size, DROCON made sure that it is built with nylon material to ensure long service life. It is both durable and flexible than standard toy-grade drones such as HS170 Predator and Hubsan X4 H107L. Because of the fact that it is made with nylon, DROCON Hacker doesn’t requires propeller guards!
Due to its popularity and size, we think the DROCON Hacker is a great choice for beginners and kids. It is so tiny that it can easily fly under the table without any issue. Battery-wise, it only last around 5 minutes and have a very limited control range. Which both is a disappointment. However, if you do plan to fly it indoor (which you definitely should because the Hacker drone isn’t built for outdoor flight due to its small size). Then, we highly recommend you to check this drone out.
