Cheerson CX-20 Quadcopter: Much More than Just a Toy

Manufactured by Cheerson Hobby Technology Company Limited, one of China’s top drone manufacturers, CX-20 is an affordable, yet feature-rich quadcopter. The drone provides an excellent learning experience to people who want to explore the world of UAVs. It’s a GPS enabled QC with professional looks and a durable body.  The camera mounting base and auto Pathfinder allow enthusiasts to truly explore the technology and make the most out of the product.

 

The attractive and highly integrated design of CX-20 makes it very easy to carry around and can easily be packed into backpacks. It also allows you to mount handy or light cameras like GoPro, which can be used to shoot aerial footage. It’s also very easy to assemble and can be used right out of the box after attaching propellers and installing the batteries (need to be fully charged before use).  Not only CX-20 is well built and durable, it’s also a very stable flier. However, the gadget probably won’t satisfy you if you are a thrill speedster. The drone is more about stability and consistent performance than speed (max flight speed 36km/h).
