PROS:

DURABILITY AND DESIGN:

Starfigher'ish looks with some aerodynamic advantages. X300C is available in two colors: red and silvery white. Though I really do not know who would buy a red one. Silvery white is prone to getting crusty after a few falls .

When talking about durability, the plastic material of the body seems to be durable enough to sustain some crashes. You may, however, want to take breaks between each flight (approx. 10 minutes) to avoid the drone from overheating.

CAMERA:

The 2 MP camera quality is clearly not the best but it does provide a First Person View. Images and videos can be taken by the camera and be stored into the SD card. It can even be directly uploaded to the phone. Due to this very feature, this model is quite suitable for commercial purposes. Videos and photos come off grainy. HS110 has a 720p camera, just saying.

Apart from ease-of-control, this drone also has an additional feature of Phase-detection auto-focus which helps to adjust the camera with the speed.

BATTERY AND FLIGHT TIME:

Holy Stone X300C comes with a lone 3.7V 750 mAH battery. This battery takes around 72 minutes to charge up fully. A fully charged battery can last for about 10 minutes.

CONTROLLER:

Holy Stone X300C has the strength of TX transmitter. It combines with an application to help in the piloting of the quadcopter. The TX controller gets you an easy-to-connect access via the manual controls and 2.4 G connectivity. This feature helps you to get signal strength and it also helps to mark the altitude of the quadcopter.

UNIQUE FEATURES:

This drone comes equipped with three different flight modes (beginner, intermediate and experience) and 360 degrees flip feature.

FLIGHT PERFORMANCE:

This marvel can make instant swings, 3D rolls and spins, throttle and other interesting acrobatics. There is also automation of take-offs and landings.

CONS:

  • The model is capable of heating up very quickly. This makes long breaks between the flights important. There is a review somewhere which says the drone caught on fire on the first flight! Yea this thing heats the crap up.
  • There is also a time lag of 5 seconds for the drone’s control signals.
  • Buying this drone isn't easy. Amazon doesn't carry it almost half the time.
  • HS110 is better, I think - that being said you get what you pay for. X300Cs generally had more quality control than the HS110.
