The WLToys Q616 Is a Lot of Toy Drone for Just $45
Prices of toy drones have been tumbling steadily and buyers these days are really spoilt for choice when it comes to buying toy drones. The WLToys Q616 is one such example of a well-designed toy drone that costs just $45 shipped. A quick look at the Q616’s spec sheet reveals only mediocre features but this is one model that offers plenty of value considering that just 1 year ago, a drone like this would cost at least $100.
- 0.3MP WiFi FPV camera
- Flight features:
- Altitude hold
- Auto landing / take-off
- Headless mode
- One key return
- Approximately 75m control range
- 8 to 10 minutes flight time
- 3.7V 900mAh Li Po battery (with proprietary slot-in design)
The Q616 has all the staple features we’ve come to expect from a sub-$100 drone and this includes altitude hold and headless mode. What really impresses me about this drone is its looks. Both the drone and transmitter (remote controller) look aesthetically pleasing.
I’ve never used it before but the transmitter looks like it has decent ergonomics, looking very much like the Tx from the DLFPV DL-1060 micro FPV racer that I received recently.
It’s a pity that the Q616 comes only with a 0.3MP WiFi FPV camera and not 2MP but at this price point, 0.3MP is still pretty standard. The WLToys Q616 is available at LightInTheBox for just $45. Click here for more details.
