Simrex X900 Drone Camera

This is a very cheap drone but it does come with a camera with which you can have a lot of fun.

It’s a 1080p camera that has a 110° FOV, although the actual quality of the video isn’t really HD, it is good enough for a drone under $100. The FPV feed is in standard 480p and if the app is working correctly and you stay well-within the transmission range, the live footage is decent enough.

To get the best video resolution you will need to record the video footage on a micro SD card, there is none provided with the package, so you will need to purchase one separately.

Although it’s an overall decent camera, the issues with app are a problem and there are better options out there. My no.1 choice for the best drone under $100 is the DJI Tello drone, it comes with a good camera and some very good features and a far superior app.

Other Features

Like I mentioned earlier in the article, the drone does come with some cool features that will make it more fun to fly, these features include the following;

Headless Mode – This is the default flight mode, its best for beginners as the drone is easier to fly.

Altitude Hold – With its optical flow sensor, it flies smoothly and can hover pretty decently.

3D Flips – With the push of a button the drone will do some cool 360° flips which will impress family and friends.

Gravity Sensor Mode – In this mode, you can fly the drone by moving your smartphone around.

3 Speed Modes – You can test your flying skills by switching between different speeds even in mid-flight.

The drone also comes with one-button take-off and landing and is also compatible with VR headsets that will give you a more immersive flying experience.

Flight Performance

This is an easy drone to fly, the controls are easy to operate and as long as you fly in non-windy conditions, you will have no problems controlling the drone. If you do decide to fly in windy conditions, make sure to install the propeller guards to minimise any damage to the drone if you do crash it.

Final Thoughts

There are a lot of cheap drones that come with some decent features and are fun to fly, the Simrex X900 is one of them. It’s suitable for everyone but it’s mainly targeted for beginners, it comes with a decent camera and some nice features, however, the app does have some problems and sometimes the live video feed may be cut-off.
