The Cheerson Cx-10 Quadrocopter Is A Bestseller Through And Through And Boasts Through Very Compact Dimensions And An Agile Flight Behavior. Why Buying A Mini-Quadrocopter Is Possible, Clarifies Our Test.
No More Smallest Quadrocopter Of The World
For a long time the Cheerson CX-10 was praised as the world’s smallest quadrocopter. However, the Cheerson CX-10 had to surrender to the Skeye Pico Drone-22 x 22 x 19 millimeters, compared to the 40 x 40 x 22 millimeters of the Cheerson CX-10 Remote control. However, our comparison shows quite clearly: The Cheerson CX-10 Quadrocopter is still so tiny that one could almost doubt the flying skills.
Great flight characteristics-perfect for beginners
Nevertheless, our Quadrocopter test showed: The Cheerson CX-10 can be controlled extremely well! The safe control of a quadrocopter requires a lot of practice and ample experience. As a rule, the quadrocopter controls are hardly different from each other. Two control sticks are always available, which are used to control the quadrocopter in the longitudinal, (roll), transverse (pitch) and high axis (yaw axis). With modern camera drones with GPS system and many other sensors, the control is much easier. However, due to the compact design, mini drones do not have GPS, so the control is simplified only by an integrated gyroscope. This is why a mini-quadrocopter is ideally suited for learning and training the control.The Cheerson CX-10 is also suitable for learning the control of a quadrocopter and finding its way into the world of flying robots.
Built-In Battery And Very Low Flight Time
The Cheerson CX-10 is available in a variety of colors (eg light blue, turquoise, red, green, purple) and comes with a color matching remote control helicopter, a colorful charging cable, a replacement propeller and an integrated 100 mAh battery. Small LED lights provide information on the direction of travel or position of the mini-drone. On closer inspection, there is also a small disadvantage of the tiny one: The battery is not interchangeable and can only be charged by means of a plug-in connection to the housing. The built-in rechargeable battery allows a flying time of about five minutes. Because the battery is firmly integrated and the flight time is relatively low, the flight pass does not last very long. Then you have to wait about 45 minutes, until the battery is backed up with sufficient USB power cable.Nevertheless, the first prizes for the Cheerson CX-10 start at around 15, -Euro, which is why it may be worthwhile to buy a second model.The remote control requires two AAA batteries, which unfortunately are not included in the delivery. The range of the Cheerson CX-10 is sparse 20 to 40 meters inside and outside. This is absolutely sufficient for indoor use.
Flips, Tricks And 360-Degree Somersaults
At the push of a button, the Cheerson CX-10 can perform great flips, tricks and somersaults. A lot of experience is not required-just a pressure on the appropriate joystick is enough for the cute quadrocopter to perform impressive stunts. So after the pressure a loud beep sounds from the remote control and you only have to select the direction in which the Cheerson CX-10 should execute the trick using the right joystick.
Conclusion And Recommendation
The very agile flight behavior, the great stunt functions and the extremely low price are just a few reasons to buy the Cheerson CX-10.One disadvantage is the permanently integrated and non-replaceable battery or the low battery life, so you have to be satisfied with a flight time of only four to about five minutes. If you want to bridge the charging time and have more flight fun, the purchase of another model is absolutely recommended.
