All i want for christmas is my little toy drone. I know i can’t sing hello to all my friends around the world. I’M justin davis welcome to my living room. My decorations are up. What do you guys think? Do you like my christmas tree? This is a real christmas tree, guys it’s not actually a fake one, det er, not plastic. It smells like christmas in here and today. This is all about getting the beginners into our hobby, so fpv is our passion and iflight has been doing great this year. This is a great bundle to start out with. This is the iflight christmas edition a65 alpha quad. It is 65 millimeter. It has brushless motors on here, and i did review the full review of this one previously on the channel this year. The biggest difference is that this one has tbs crossfire on here, så jeg er, going to fly it on my tango 2 but i’m going to recommend you guys, get the xm plus version and put it on a tx12 for anybody that’s starting out in the hobby. If you’re already flying, you can get your son or daughter up in the air with this one, pretty easy and i’m going to recommend the vr004 goggles, they are also running 5.8. This is an analog version, not dji, so much more cost effective and lower price, but what’s cool. Også. Is that your new pilot or yourself, you can record your videos to a microsd card, and once you do that you can upload them to youtube and make your own videos so let’s go ahead now, guys and let’s get started flying this we’ll do a flying! Demo! First and then after that, we’ll take a little look at this on the bench.
Here we go Music right, Musik, All right, Fyre, welcome back after the flight test and let’s just go ahead and break this quad down from iflight. This is the a65 christmas edition and it has a lot going for it because it does come with a really nice case, which is cool. It fits the quad in there up to eight batteries. We have an extra canopy in here, which is really nice and a camera mount hiding down there. You have an extra spot here that you can pull out for additional items if you have more batteries or parts or maybe you want to put another frame up inside this pouch. They give you quite a bit of extras in here as well. Se lige her.. We have nas gold props, we have an extra usb cable in there and another one. It looks like you get a usbc and i got a regular android cable. But if you want to switch this out after christmas to be the blue one that’s cool too for january and let’s just check out the accessories, we’ve got the nasgle props in here, and these are little tiny, tiny props that will fit your 65 millimeter quad. So two sets of props three, including the ones on the quad which is cool, and these are to fit zero. Eight zero, To, twenty thousand twenty two thousand kv motors. We also have a schematic here of the flight controller, the iflight f4 sussex 1s 5 amp aio loop diagram for many different receivers on here.
It looks like we have rxsr. We have tbs nano and the xm plus so um, whichever receiver you decide to go with. If you need to put another one on there, it’s nice to have the diagram motor diagram, one two, three four motors cam – it just plugs right into the back of the camera there and we have a 50 milliwatt vtx, which i love on here. So it looks like two: u, arts are available on that flight controller as well. Now you also get a little accessories bag and you have a little tiny screwdriver in here you’ve got a little charger, which is super compact. It has the ph 2.0 connector on here for those batteries. Også, if you want to fly a little larger battery i’d recommend the all line. One s450: you can take a zip tie or even a little tiny, strap and just strap this to the bottom of the quad. It will actually be able to pick up a 450 and you’ll probably get about close to three minutes flight time. Out of one of these versus two minutes on the 300 milliamp battery – and this is the usbc port right here – that will plug into maybe a wall outlet or a battery bank and then you’re charging your batteries one at a time. They should take about 10 Minutter. Each but i’m gon na recommend that you guys get the eachine six and one charger for these i’ll put that link down below because it’s an awesome charger.
You can also get an ac wall outlet adapter for it and i’ll put the link down there for that. As well, you also get always from diatonia and all these companies some stickers, some extra hardware, you get some extra screws in case you drop them, because these are tiny, tiny screws and you get some extra canopy screws which will really come in handy. If you lose one, so you can go from 25 Til 50 milliwatt on here and that’s nice, because some of the other whoops out there are only 25 milliwatt and this one right away. I have to tell you um that i wasn’t impressed with the stock antenna. The stock antenna to me was a little bit garbage um, but once i cranked it up to 50, it did much better, so crank this one up to 50 milliwatt immediately, but the problem with this one was it’s, showing some lines across the screen and i’ve. Seen that before and once i switched out that antenna for another one that i had laying around all those lines across the screen just kind of disappeared – and this is just one that had sitting in the shop – it was a tbs nano antenna and it has a Ufl connector on this little tiny, video transmitter, so all you have to do is take off these two bolts right here, pop this top and then pop it on there. So i just kind of scrunch it underneath the canopy and zip tied it off.
You want to do that so that it doesn’t pop off of your vtx, because you’ll be taking the canopy right back off, so it has plenty of power on the 22 000 kv motors and for those motors and that power setup i’m getting around a two minute Flight time on a 1s 300 milliamp battery and that’s, ikke så dårligt, i think that’s pretty good. Også, it has a tpu mount in the back. If you guys have the xm plus, you can run your antennas right out there in the xm plus i’ve tested it it’ll go about a mile out or more so you should have plenty of range on 50 milliwatt. Actually outdoors, if you decide you want to freestyle this you’re, probably going to get about a minute and a quarter time freestyle. If you’re doing high throttle maneuvers with this so it’s not really a freestyle machine, it will do some mild stuff, but i did get wash out outdoors with my a65 so plug and play motors as well on the bottom right here. So if one of your motors goes out, you can just put a new motor in there without having to use your soldering iron and the camera is soldered down to the flight controller. But if this camera goes bad, the cool thing is is that this camera is actually plugged into the vtx. So if this one goes bad, you could get a replacement camera for it and plug it right back into the vtx.
You might even be able to see the plug right in the back right there underneath the canopy, so that’s kind of nice that you guys have that option. So it’s kind of a no solder design, mostly what we have here. All right let’s go ahead and set this little guy on the scale and it does have the tbs antenna on there. It does weigh 26.6 grams without this antenna with the stock antenna. It weighs 23 grams now, with this 300 milliamp battery we’re, getting it up to 35.1 grams for total takeoff and that’s with the tbs nano. So i might be the point. Gram uh heavier with the xm plus, but i doubt it, but it’s probably going to be right around 35 Gram. For you guys, if you decide to upgrade your antenna and as far as the durability goes, this little frame is extremely durable. You can see it’s super flexible here when it does bang into things around the house, det er, not that brittle plastic, like we used to have a couple years ago on some of the eachine stuff. You had to replace these frames all the time they have four struts on the bottom of each duct, and i would say these are woop ducks it’s, not super super quiet, but it’s not really loud. Either they have these iflight nascal’s are pretty nice. These props are pretty well designed they’re a lot smoother feeling than some of the other just kind of cheaper, cheap plastic props that i’ve flown on whoops in the past, and this little camera is not bad either.
Vi har en 800 tvl camera on here as well. So that’s a pretty decent resolution for this camera on 5.8 and unfortunately for me, i have a hard time seeing with the vr004s uh from eachine. So if you’re nearsighted like me, that might be a little bit of an issue for you but um. It seems to be a little bit too close to my face and, if you’re getting into fpv – and you want to try on some goggles, make sure you try on friends at the field. First before you just order a set of goggles. But if you have 20 20 vision, don’t worry about it. If you need glasses, these will accommodate some smaller glasses. But then again, if you have contacts um, that also might help the the tx12, though again, is gon na, be my recommended transmitter as well. Det er fantastisk, it has two 18650s in the bottom. Let me just show you that little hatch down there we’ve got open tx on this baby and enough switches on here to be able to have your arm switch. We’Ve got your mode switch here, which i usually do and then your flip switch. You can also put turtle mode on this little guy. So if it flips over upside down on the carpet, you disarm hit the turtle mode switch throttle up and this little club will tip back over. And then you disarm again and then go back to your regular flying mode in air mode, which is really cool and c.
You can put a d shot beeper on this little guy and also what’s cool about this transmitter is it does have a micro sd card down the bottom, so you can put new firmware on this guy. You can update it to the latest open tx firmware, which is supported on the ox, the open tx website, which is super super nice, so it has its own real firmware from opentx, which is really really great for the community, and it has removable ancient on here. It’S got a spot back here. If you decide you want to run crossfire, you have that option as well. So pull this out pop in your crossfire module and you can fly a tbs nano and that nano will get you out there for miles. But since you only have a two minute flight time, honestly you’re not going to go very far just around the house – probably and maybe down the street, but this is a great radio. You guys ever want to invest in at the tango. 2 is what i did fly today and uh it’s kind of overkill for the house honestly, but you can get the tbs nano version of this one, but i don’t honestly see why you would. I would probably just stick to an xm plus one here: that’s going to be plenty of range, and i really don’t think it’ll fail safe on you, not at the distances you’re flying this little christmas whoop.
So it’s super cute guys, thanks again for watching my channel and checking out the newest funnest little loop out there right now merry christmas to everybody on the drum camps channel, hopefully santa brings you all of the drones that you want this year and hopefully it’s one Of these, because it’s just too cute the a65 christmas edition, i think i might put that blue canopy on there pretty soon. It is an awesome. Combo guys take care i’m, justin davis, happy holidays, Jeg vil, see you on the next one.
