This is my first outdoor flight in stability mode with my new Blade Zeyrok Drone BNF RC Quadcopter! I even included a little preview footage with it in stagility mode at the end, including some footage of a crash lol
In addition to this flight, I also made a complete review that includes and unboxing, indoor maiden flight, and review.
Here are my review notes for this Horizon Hobby RC Drone after flying it outdoors:
– Outstanding looks
– It performs much better than I orignally thought it would outdoors, thought I thought it would still do well
– It handles crashes with ease with its lightweight but rugged build
– It is BNF, so it binds to my Spektrum DX6
– Three flight modes
– The lights make it a nice night flyer
– Accepts my 600mAh Nano-Tech batteries
– No prop guards and it is a beginner quad
– It flies like a toy grade quad in some ways
– Brushed motors
– Very loud
Here is how Horizon Hobby describes this:
There’s nothing like the exhilarating feeling you get during your first flight with a drone. That’s why the Blade® brand has been in the rotor wing business—because flying a great aircraft keeps that exhilaration alive. Using decades of combined experience, the Blade team has engineered great designs that harness new technology so that you can experience success on the first flight and beyond. Today, exclusive SAFE Technology and the all new Zeyrok™ quadcopter is poised to help you become a great RC pilot, plus have fun of exploring aerial photography and video all at the same time.
The Blade® Zeyrok™ quadcopter is the ideal drone for new pilots and anyone who wants a fun flying experience. Based on a proven power system, its next-gen airframe has been industrial engineered to have a futuristic concept-appearance that’s incredibly durable. But you’ll have no trouble keeping it together. That’s because the SAFE® system of the Zeyrok drone is designed with multiple flight modes to provide the kind of confidence-building flying characteristics that makes lift-off as smooth as possible. As a result, you can rock from beginner to expert drone pilot at the pace that’s right for you. The optional camera pod with landing gear (included with BLH7360 Zeyrok drone with camera) is removable so you can quickly turn this nimble quad into a lightweight HD camera drone.
The Blade® Zeyrok™ drone features exclusive SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology, a revolutionary electronic flight envelope protection system that’s custom tuned with intuitive flight modes that help anyone fly with confidence.
Stability mode: Pitch and roll limits are locked to offer a limited flight envelope while electronic self-leveling offers positive stability the instant you release the sticks.
Stagility™ mode: Self-leveling and flight envelope limits are maintained. You can flip 360° by moving control stick to full in any direction.
Agility mode: A high performance flight experience that features unlimited maneuverability and the control to explore aerobatic flight.
Available in brilliant yellow or vibrant green, the industrial engineered plastic airframe provides a level of durability that can withstand a remarkable level of abuse. The next-gen futuristic appearance of the Zeyrok drone is the creative expertise of Mirco Pecorari at Aircraft Studio Design.
Removable Landing Gear
You can get the Zeyrok drone with the removable landing gear and HD camera, or upgrade the RTF and BNF versions with replacement part (BLH7309). For an additional level of protection, the landing gear alone (BLH7302) is also an option.
Long Flight Times
The 750mAh 1S Li-Po flight battery can provide flight times of up to 10-minutes. Its high capacity allows it to run the flight system and optional remote controlled HD camera.
Besides the RTF versions with or without the HD camera, there’s a Bind-N-Fly® version (without HD Camera) that will work great with a long list of available 5+ channel multi-function transmitters equipped with genuine Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSMX® technology.”
Overall, this was a bit of a let down, much like my ECX Outburst RTR RC Motorcycle, only not quite as bad. I expected this to fly more like my Blade Nano QX 3D and less like my Syma X5HW. Instead, it mostly closely flew like my Dromida Vista UAV, which comes RTF for the same cost as this. I was surprised that my Blade Inductrix, which sells for a lot less actually flies a lot better based on my testing.
