Are we bored of folding drones yet? Definitely not! The new DM107S is the latest product from a little known manufacturer called ‘Da Ming’. It is not quite as cheap as others that we have reviewed lately but it does fly very well, despite a few app bugs.
GeekBuying kindly sent us this drone for review, we had not heard of ‘Da Ming’ before then and they do seem to be a fairly new manufacturer.
The product is good quality, well built and solid, plus is flies incredibly well although we did encounter issues with providing examples of the onboard video due to an app bug/defect. The 7 minutes flight time did impress us, especially considering the tiny 1s 900mAh battery.
“DA MING DM107S comes with foldable arm design, making it very easy to carry anywhere. It has a built-in 2MP WIFI FPV camera, which allows you to take pictures & video during flight. Flying features of the drone are altitude hold mode, headless mode, flight plan mode etc. The range of the quadcopter is about 80~100 meters.”
The DM107S is presented very nicely with a high quality box and packaged full with accessories such as prop guards, spare props and other elements.
