To start quadrocopters will need only to purchase batteries for the remote control and charge the battery.


Especially in this quadrocopters few. Firstly, it is equipped with the FPV-camera that can transmit video directly on the LCD-display, which comes in the kit. The camera, by the way, finally began to work with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels, unlike previous models copter JJRC (except H8C and H12C, of course). Examples of videos taken with the camera, see below.

Secondly, it can fly in copter «Headless» mode. I mean, no matter what part of his body quadrocopter will be deployed to you during the flight - Electronics copter will assume that he will turn back to you with screws, regardless of how things are in reality.

Third, the base material in the manufacture of carbon fiber was quadrocopters. Typically, this material is used to create more advanced and expensive copter, the price of which starts from a few hundred dollars. What are the advantages of carbon fiber to the plastic? It's simple: it is a strong, but at the same time easy.

In addition, the copter is equipped with a function to return home, that is activated by pressing just one button on the remote control. However, as the V686 is not equipped with a receiver GPS, he is not able to determine where his initial take-off point, so when you press this key, it just flies in the opposite direction.
