Potentic D60 Review
Potensic D60 Camera
The main feature of this drone (or any drone for that matter) is its HD camera. Cameras are why I love drones, they let you view the world from a different perspective and allow you to record some cool videos.
The camera has a 1080p resolution, it has a 110° wide-angle lens and can be remotely adjusted 45° for better viewing angles. It is stabilised by a 1-axis gimbal, which will give you give you better quality images and videos, but there will still be some noticeable distortion, especially if you fly in windy conditions
The video and image quality is decent, considering how much the drone costs and the fact that you will not be using it for professional reasons. There is a bit of lag when in FPV mode, although that is not unusual for most drones in this price range.
It’s a decent HD camera and is very fun to use, however, if you want a high-quality drone with no noticeable distortion, there are some very good 4K camera drones that cost less than $500 which may interest you. These drones will give you near professional-level video footage and images (the ones you would post on YouTube and Instagram) and they have many advanced features. Check them out here.
The Potensic D60 comes with the following features that will help you fly the drone more easily and have more fun with it.
GPS – Will allow you to fly the drone more smoothly and hover more accurately, the GPS module also allows the drone to have smart flight modes.
Orbit Mode – One of the smart flight modes, the drone will orbit you when this mode is activated.
Waypoint – In this smart flight mode you will be able to draw a flight path on the app and the drone will fly along it and come back home.
Follow Me – Pretty self-explanatory, the drone will follow you wherever you go.
Automatic Return Home – This is a useful feature that will minimise the risk of lsoing the drone during flight, if you lose connection of if the battery gets low on charge, the drone will return home automatically.
This is an easy drone to fly, especially with its GPS module and smart flight modes as well as the one-button take-off and landing features. It holds up well in slightly windy conditions, although if you are a complete beginner, I would advise you not to fly in any kind of harsh weather. The drone has three-speed modes and is pretty quick in its fastest mode, which should only be flown in if you are an experienced flyer. The transmission range could be better but 300 meters is usually the ballpark for most drones that cost less than $200.
This is a pretty decent drone; it comes with a good camera and some cool features. The drone is fun to fly and is suitable for everyone. It costs just less than $200 which is reasonable, click on the button below to find out more details about the Potensic D60.
