Air Hogs Millennium Falcon Drone Review 2019 – is the Millennium Falcon Drone worth the money? Review of features, pricing, flight duration, battery, camera and more.

One of my friends, a real estate broker wants to show live videos of properties he has for sale to his clients from different angles, and sometimes show them the interior of the property without taking them inside. I love aerial photography for subjects that are in close proximity. My tech savvy son has been pleading to give him an electronic Frisbee with which he can play inside the house without damaging furniture. Although the Millennium Falcon is perfect for my son, neither I nor my friend can use it, as it does not have any camera. In fact the drone market is skyrocketing all over the world, with new manufacturers joining the fray every few months. However, one should be extremely choosy before purchasing such a gadget. The price factor and whether the drone can serve your purpose are the primary things you need to think about before purchasing one of them. If you are a beginner, do not want to burn a hole in your pocket, and are satisfied with flight times of five to eight minutes, then you should definitely read this Millennium Falcon drone review, as it will provide you with insights about the design of the device, its range, and its other features like the synthesized “Star Wars” sounds as well as a “Star Wars” logo on its controller. This device is sure to appeal to Star War fans and at $69.00, it is perfect for the first time drone user, and is an excellent gift to give to your kid. Let us jump into specifics and find out why this gadget is different from other drones.

Designed for indoor use

It is crystal clear that this drone is not intended for outside use, as the design of its rotors makes the device extremely unstable, particularly if it is windy. The gadget has four propellers, located next to each other within the main fuselage of the Millennium Falcon. Thanks to this, the design is as close as possible to the original but does not provide stability that could have been achieved if the manufacturers had spread out the rotors. Do not expect a high speed from this drone; however, this is a blessing in disguise as it permits you to easily maneuver it around tight spaces.

Flight options and range

This drone, apart from rotating horizontally and flying in all directions, can move up and down vertically too. Basically, it is more like a helicopter than a Star Wars spaceship. I was disappointed by the 200 feet range of the drone, but that should not pose any problems for those planning to use the drone indoors. I played with it outdoors too when the conditions were not windy, and it worked as promised by the manufacturers. I have noted some of my acquaintances stating that the remote lost contact with this drone after about 80 feet, but it seems this was due to a malfunctioning product. I told them to ask for a replacement. However, I’ll be frank with you. If you are interested in aerial photography and want the drone to travel long distances, hunt for some other model, as this is basically a flying, remote controlled toy. On the flip side it is awesome for use inside the house.

Power for device and controller

This drone ships with its own internal batteries; however, you have to charge them prior to use. However, you require six AA batteries for the controller. Initially I had doubts whether the small sized controller could actually accommodate six batteries, but it did. I strongly suggest that you purchase two battery chargers and six chargeable AA batteries; else, you might end up spending a huge sum on purchasing nickel cadmium batteries. I could not understand the necessity of so many batteries, but suspect it is required to generate the sound effects. Apart from this, you have to charge the lithium polymer battery of the drone with the controller. The manufacturers could have easily installed a USB charger to the device without hiking its price by more than a couple of Dollars. The battery life is not worth shouting about. It is just like any other drone in respect to charge time and flying time. It takes approximately one hour to charge the drone, which is typical of drones in the $100 price range. These factors apart, I was thrilled with the design and the ease of use of the controller. On the flip side, if you want to take it with you on a trip, you do not have to carry a separate charger.

Adorable sound effects

Kids will love the sound effects of the controller. You can use the buttons on the remote to control the sound effects, which emanate from a speaker on the remote. The sound effects are typically random, some of them specific to the Millennium Falcon, while the others are character sounds from Star Wars. Your kid will love to hear the beeps of the R2-D2 or listen to Chewbacca growl, as well as the roaring sound of the engine of the drone.

Performance

Although this drone performs quite well, do not expect the features found in high end models. The design is the main selling point of this drone. Although it is not built for maneuverability or speed, it functions fine at both. Learning to fly this device is extremely simple, thanks to the gyro located inside of the Millennium, and learning the controls are easy too, especially for those who have flew RC devices before, as the controls are identical to those found in the remote control of other drones. The sad news is that one cannot use this drone outdoors, especially in windy conditions, as it will cause the device to toss around hither and tither. I tried attaching a small digital camera to the device, but it could not lift the weight. No doubt, you can play with t outdoors on a calm and windless day, but this toy is more designed to be used indoors. Use the left joystick for yawning and throttling and the right joystick for pitching and rolling.

Lovable design
As mentioned previously, I was pleasantly surprised by the design of this drone which is nearly close to the spaceship used in Star Wars. You might miss out on functionality, but will love the design. Kids will love this drone because it looks downright cool, flying through the sky, albeit on a windless day. If you look at this drone from the side, it will appear as if it is floating. The manufacturers have placed the propellers in such a way that they are visible only if you look the drone from above or from below. From the front and the sides, it looks more like a hovercraft.

Easy to clean
You can easily clean the removable rotors. In case you are facing any problems with the gadget, try taking a look at the rotors. Chances are that its rotors have accumulated hair or dirt, preventing it from flying with full charge.

PROs & Cons

Pros
• Good for use inside the home
• Kids will love the sound effects
• Awesome design… just like the spaceship of Star Wars
• Pocket friendly price

Cons
• Short distance (200 feet)
• Six batteries required for the controller
• Long charging time
• Not for outdoor use

Snaptain A15 costs the same, includes a high density camera, as well as voice control and several other features. It boasts of one key return (GPS) and contains two modular batteries. However, it is not as ruggedly built as the Falcon nor does it look like the world famous sci-fi spaceship.

Some of my friends purchased the Falcon for their kids, and all of them are happy about the product. Their only crib is the short flying duration, and the six batteries that the controller requires. They also love the ease with which they could remove the propellers and clean them of dirt or wrapped up hair. They also loved the foam material of the drone which ensured that it would not damage any item if it came in contact with it. They said that the controls are responsive and precise.
