Flying3D ‘Reaper’ FY919 Review, Unboxing, Optical Flow & Flight Test

Optical Flow impressed us on the tiny Cheerson CX-OF but now a new and cheaper quadcopter has arrived with this feature. We initially said “no” to this review product, but BangGood sent it anyway and we are now glad that they did.

At first glance, the ‘Reaper‘ looks too budget and hence our initial apprehension on spending the time to unbox, review and flight test it, but this is actually a decent quadcopter despite the budget price.

At less than £38/$45 this quadcopter has enclosed props, altitude hold and optical flow which prevents the quadcopter from drifting during hover, perfect for beginners.

  • Live FPV realtime video.
  • Altitude Hold.
  • Optical Flow Positioning.
  • Beginner Mode.
  • Emergency Stop.
  • One-Key Take off/Landing.
