In the autumn of 2014 the American company Blade released another ultra small drone - Blade Faze. What's he like - see below.


Blade Faze - a typical representative of the class of nano-quadrocopters: it weighs some 12.2 grams. To lift so easy copter into the air using a lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 100mAh - less than Pico QX. As a result, flight time decreased to 3 minutes, maximum - 3.5 minutes.

Unlike its analog, Faze has no SAFE technology, and therefore it is less stable in flight. This increases the chances of collisions with various objects and seemingly quadrocopter should be strong, but ... According to the tests, and reviews from other customers, Faze - very unreliable copter and not durable, for which the first encounter with any detail of the interior is be fatal.


Weight: 12.2 g
Flight time: about 3 - 3.5 minutes
The operating frequency of the remote control: 2.4Ghz


Review in English and flight

Nano-quadrocopter Blade Faze is not worth buying. Firstly, it is much more expensive than its direct competitors (the same Cheerson CX-10 can be taken as 15-20 dollars, and fly it will not be worse), and secondly, a lot of buyers speak highly of his unreliability. So why pay more for a drone that even after the collapse of the 1st collision?
