Contixo F18 Quadcopter GPS Wifi FPV Drone
Take to the sky with confidence using the 2018 brand new F18 GPS Drone from Contixo. This F18 drone has all the latest drone technology that makes it easy to fly and gives the pilot full control. The F18 comes with an HD FPV camera that lets the pilot see what the drone sees via the mobile phone app available for Android and iOS mobile devices. Equipped with MT1806 1800KV brushless motors to ensure minimal friction during engine operation and reduce heat production. Better engine durability and prolonged battery life up to 50%. Super bright LED lights on the drone make deciphering orientation very easy and allow for night flying. This drone inspires confidence in their pilot so that they feel that they have full control. Experience the power of the Contixo F18 GPS drone.
Advanced GPS assisted hovering: GPS mode enables precise positioning and prevents drone loss. Simply move the GPS switch to the on position before operating the drone to use all the GPS features such as Return to Home and Low Voltage Return to Home. You need wait approximately 1-2 minutes until you achieve a GPS signal of at least 7 after the drone is paired.
Auto Return to Home: Very precise GPS assisted return to home feature for seamless flights. The drone will land within a 10 ft. radius from the home point.
Smart Return to Home: If a strong GPS signal is available (more than 7 satellites on the LCD screen) and the home point is recorded at takeoff, press the return home button. The drone will fly back to the home point. You can use the remote controller to guide the drone around obstacles during the smart RTH procedure. You can press the RTH button again to exit RTH procedure and regain the control of the drone.
Failsafe Return to Home: Failsafe RTH will be triggered if the remote control signal is lost for more than 6 seconds, the GPS control system will guide the drone automatically to the last recorded Home Point. Regain control of the drone by press the RTH button if the remote control signal is recovered.
Low voltage Return to Home: The drone will perform a Low Voltage Return to Home function when the battery is low. When the drone’s battery is at 50% and the drone's altitude is over 300 ft., or the drones distance is 900 ft. away, the drone will automatically fly back to the original Home Point. When the drone’s battery is at 20% and the drone’s altitude is over 45 ft., or the drones distance is over 45 ft. away, the drone will automatically fly back to the original Home Point.
4 Throttle control modes: The throttle control mode is set to mode 2 by default. Left-hand and right-hand throttle are available control modes for users who prefer non-standard controls. There is a total of 4 control modes.
Amazing Live Feed/FPV/VR
Using the onboard HD camera and wifi capabilities, this drone is not only able to broadcast live video to the mobile app but allows the pilot to fly First Person View and even turn on Virtual Reality mode so you can fly using your favorite VR headset
Water Resistant Carrying Bag:
Water resistant carrying backpack: The Contixo F18 drone comes with a stylish water-resistant carrying backpack specifically designed with comfort in mind. No more lugging around a heavy box to protect your drone. With the Contixo F18 carrying bag, you can seamlessly carry all your drone parts and accessories wherever you go! Easy to carry, more practical, suitable for your outdoor sports. Protect your items during transport in this compartment. The value of the bag is $50.
Real-time FPV (First Person View) transmission and HD 1080p camera: Full high definition 1080P 5G Wi-Fi FPV camera works perfectly with the mobile APP "Contixo F18": The onboard FPV HD camera lets you see what your drone sees, ideal for filming a designated spot or simply to look around and admire your surroundings. The 5G Wi-Fi zero-latency real-time image transmission reaches Up to 500 Meters (1640 ft.) FPV distance. Its up to the area you are flying, the less interface such auto motors, TV signals, mobile networks etc, the longer FPV tansmit range it will be. The App is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones.
New generation two-way 2.4 GHz remote control: Enhanced control of the transmitter to 1 mile for the ultimate flying experience.
Altitude hold, 1-Key take-off / 1-Key landing: Take control quickly and easily with 1-Key take-off and landings. With the simple press of a button, your drone will rise to a height of 5 ft. or land. This feature is perfect for beginners who are not experienced with take-off or landings.
Super long control distance and flying time: Up to 1 Mile remote control distance. Removable 7.4V 2100mAH, high-capacity rechargeable battery with energy-optimized system gives you a vastly improved flight experience. Up to 20 minutes of flight time if you disable the Wifi FPV transmitting, video recording and GPS features.
Brushless motors with independent ESC’s (Electronic Speed Controllers): The 4 powerful brushless motors have the power and precision needed to give you the ability to speed up, quickly increase or decrease altitude, and stop immediately. They work with lightning-fast ESC’s to make your F18 fast, agile, and responsive. Each motor is managed individually by the electronic speed controllers. The innovative auto-braking system is mounted on the ESC's to not only effectively protect the motors, but also ensure a safe flight. Independent ESC’s provide built-in automatic lock protection, high-temperature lock protection, and avoid ESC burn out due to deadlock.
Super bright LED lights for night time flying: Your F18 isn’t scared of the dark! Fly it at night and enjoy the show. 4 glorious LED lights make night flying as easy as flying in the day. Your Contixo F18 will look great in the night sky.
6-Axis Gyroscope: 6-axis gyroscope has 3 accelerometers in addition to the three standard orientation sensors. This added feature makes the 6-axis more resistant to altitude displacement. The accelerometers compensate for any unwanted acceleration or movement in the three dimensions. This ensures the drone can fly freely without interference by wind, going too high or falling to the ground. Any user learning to operate remote aircraft can easily make sharp turns with the assistance of the 6-axis gyroscope.
Headless Mode iOC (intelligent orientation control): Headless mode is an excellent feature for beginners. With headless mode engaged, you will not have to worry about orientation. The drone will move forward, backward, left, or right regardless of the way it is facing. In other words, if you lose sight of the drone because it’s too far away you can simply engage headless mode and move the directional stick backward and the drone will return towards you.
WARNNING! When you activate headless mode, the onboard flight computer always aligns the drone movements to be relative to the controller at the initial point of takeoff. In other words, if you activate headless mode and turn your body by 90° in any direction the control reference will be dramatically lost. The drone will only know the orientation based on the way the drone and remote were facing at the initial pairing process. DO NOT CHANGE YOUR PHYSICAL ORIENTATION WHEN USING HEADLESS MODE AS IT WILL HAVE A DIRECT EFFECT ON THE ORIENTATION OF THE DRONE MOVEMENTS. If you’re going to use headless mode, stay facing the same direction.
