Designed to be flown indoors due to its small size, Nano QX packs a lot of technology that lets beginners learn to fly a quadcopter.
The Nano QX is an outstanding quadcopter with unique features that will engage both quadcopter beginners and veterans. This excellent quadcopter has great maneuverability and is lightweight. Unlike most toy-grade quadcopters on the market that are built with low-quality materials, the build quality of this quadcopter is top class making it ideal to fly in any indoor environment. With a SAFE mode, you can control this machine even in tight spaces thereby enabling newbies fly it at ease. The safe mode uses a three-axis accelerometer and three-axis gyro. It also has an advanced mode to allow experienced flyers make full use of this machine. This mode has three-axis gyro that allows you to perform fast-forward flights and flips.The prop guards safeguard propellers and allow one to bounce off the walls. This allows beginners drones pilot not be afraid of damaging their new little aircraft. Besides, its solid construction eliminates the fear of crashing this quadcopter.
The BLADE Nano QX is a small fly model that comes fully assembled; therefore, all you need to do to get them flying is to fit the batteries after charging them. Its manufacturer opted to go with a simple design which is majorly highlighted by the frame. With a printed circuit board and a single piece of plastic, this is truly a simple drone. The canopy clips at the top while the battery fits securely underneath it.
One notable thing is the inclusion of prop guards- small plastics extending from the fame beyond the rotating propellers. This means that if you fly this drone near a wall or an obstacle, these guards will protect the fast-rotating propeller blades from getting damaged and damaging whatever you hit. However, they are not foolproof; if it flips over and crash heavily or hit something hard, the blades can get damaged. Also, these protective guards will be of no use if you decide to put your finger between the blades when they are rotating. Although you will not lose a finger, your quadcopter will instantly stop. The prop guards come in handy in case you fly this drone sideways into an obstacle, (as you will certainly will).
The frame is majorly made of light plastic which is compact enough to enable it withstand crashes. Measuring 7.2 by 6.3 by 2.5 inches, and weighing 8.8 oz., this quadcopter is quite suitable for any beginner drone pilot.
For a beginner, you are most likely looking for a quad that you can easily repair since you will be crashing it and hitting obstacles quite often. For Blade Nano QX, you are provided with four spare rotor blades for replacement in case the fitted ones crash; blades are the more vulnerable to crashes, and therefore you will find the four spare rotor blades provided handy. You are also provided with a spare canopy which is easy to changeover during a repair. Replacing both the rotor blades and the canopy is quite easy since the blades can easily be pulled off from this quad and slipped back in while the canopy snaps back into place.
Also, considering that this drone is quite affordable, you can order other spare parts when purchasing it to avoid the hassles in the event of damage or serious crash.
The best thing with Nano QX is that it can be used by both beginners and veterans. You can zip around or climb up at decent speeds. You will be amazed by the precision its control offers and how the drone responds quickly and swiftly to commands. However, as a beginner flyer, you will need some practice to get used to the controller.
Just remember that you will need to place the drone on a flat surface after connecting the battery for your quadcopter to take off. It won’t take off until it senses it is on solid ground. Once you see the LED light that was flashing after inserting the battery has turned a solid blue, you can take off.
As mentioned above, the Nano QX has SAFE technology which makes the drone hover in case you fail to touch the controls for a while. This will prevent your drone from crashing in case you accidentally release the controls; something that normally happens to newbies.
With a controller range of 40 feet, this drone is adequate for indoor flying. Its lightweight nature makes it unsuitable for outdoor flights as it can be blown away by the slightest breeze.
