There has recently been a lot of activity in the affordable quadcopter segment and companies have been trying to squeeze in as many features as possible. Skytech is one of those companies and its TK110HW RC quadcopter is a clear example of where the industry is heading. It packs most of the features beginners want at an affordable price, including camera, G-sensor and multiple flight modes. TK110HW is a foldable drone that is not only very easy to carry around but also looks futuristic and feels sturdy in hand. Thanks to companies like Skytech, affordable drones are now within reach of the masses.
Foldable arms make TK110HW very portable, allowing users to easily fold the propeller arms and take the quadcopter with them anywhere. Features like altitude mode, one-key landing/take-off, waypoints, G-sensor mode, headless mode and aerobatic flights make the flying experience more fun. The propeller protector and landing skid provide protection against bumps and crashes and ensure that the quadcopter is able to take some abuse. The Wi-Fi FPV transmitter provides a real-time birds eye view using the official app available for both Android and iOS devices. The smartphone serves as the viewfinder, but it can also be used to control the drone, which saves users from carrying the transmitter and make it even more portable.
