4DRC M1 Quadcopter Review: An Affordable and Versatile Drone for Beginners

If you are looking for a budget-friendly drone that can fly both indoors and outdoors, the 4DRC M1 quadcopter might catch your attention. This compact and lightweight drone offers a range of features that can appeal to beginners who want to explore the world of aerial photography and videography without breaking the bank. In this review, we will examine the key aspects of the 4DRC M1 quadcopter and see how it performs in different scenarios.

Design and Build Quality

The 4DRC M1 quadcopter has a sleek and stylish design that resembles some of the more expensive drones on the market. It has a black matte finish with red accents on the propellers and the power button. The drone measures 10.6 x 10.6 x 2.8 inches (27 x 27 x 7 cm) and weighs only 120 grams, which makes it easy to carry and maneuver. The body of the drone is made of durable ABS plastic that can withstand some impacts and scratches.

The 4DRC M1 Pro2 comes with four foldable propeller arms that can be locked and unlocked with a simple twist. When folded, the drone takes up less space and can fit into the included carrying case, which is handy for transport and storage. The propellers are protected by plastic guards that prevent them from getting damaged by walls or obstacles. The drone also has LED lights on the front and back that help you navigate it in low-light conditions and distinguish its orientation.

Camera and Features

One of the main selling points of the 4DRC M1 Pro 2 Drone is its 1080P HD camera that can capture photos and videos with decent quality. The camera is mounted on the underside of the drone and can be tilted manually by up to 90 degrees. You can control the camera angle using the remote controller, which has a dedicated button for that purpose. The camera lens has a wide-angle of view that can capture more of the scene and create panoramic shots. You can also activate the "beauty mode" feature that enhances the colors and smoothens the skin tones of your subjects.

The 4DRC M1 quadcopter has several flight modes that can make flying easier and more fun. You can switch between different speed levels (low, medium, high) depending on your skill level and the wind conditions. You can also enable the altitude hold mode that locks the drone at a certain height and reduces the need for constant adjustments. The drone has a headless mode that eliminates the need to align the drone's orientation with your own. You can also perform 360-degree flips and rolls with a single button press.

Battery Life and Range

The 4DRC M1 quadcopter comes with a 3.7V 1000mAh modular battery that can provide up to 15 minutes of flight time per charge. The battery is removable and replaceable, which means you can buy extra batteries and extend your flying time. The drone has a charging time of about 2 hours using the included USB cable. The remote controller requires 3 AA batteries that are not included.

The 4DRC M1 quadcopter has a control range of up to 100 meters (328 feet), which should be enough for most recreational flights. However, the range can be affected by the obstacles and the interference from other electronic devices in the area. The drone also has a Wi-Fi transmission range of up to 50 meters (164 feet), which allows you to stream the live video feed from the camera to your smartphone or tablet using the 4DRC app. The app is free and available for both iOS and Android
