Cheerson CX mini drone from Gearbest

Cheerson CX mini drone from Gearbest review

I ordered this Cheerson CX nano drone from Gearbest 10 days ago, and first of all, I must say it was very well packed. It could in no way be damaged on the way to my home.

The drone was provided by Gearbest in order for me to make this review. They have put it on sale for the moment at only 17,30$ – including free shipping

Nano quadcopter size and packaging

After opening the package, the first thing I noticed was the small size of it (first time I try a mini / nano quadcopter). It can practically fit in the palm of your hand (see picture below).

The Cheerson CX nano / mini drone comes with an usb cable, for charging, and a small remote controle. After charging for 15-20 minutes you are ready to fly (full charge takes 30 minutes). You need to put AAA batteries in the remote controle first, as these are not supplied. The remote controle can seem a bit small in the beginning (If you are used to bigger drones) but you will get a hang of it within minutes.

Why should I buy a mini drone?

This mini drone is the perfect tool to learn flying drones. You don´t want to start drone flying by messing up a 100$ drone. The Cheerson is perfect for learning. Thus, spare parts are cheap as well (buy here). Beside that fact, it is quite fun as well. They are very energetic in the air and you almost have the feeling of controlling an insect.

The Cheerson CX mini drone is quite light and small and you should aim for clear and quiet weather when flying it, though no drones are fit for a storm.
