Contixo F20 Drone Review

Contixo F20 Drone Review 2020 – is the Contixo F20 quadcopter worth the money? Review of features, pricing, flight duration, battery, camera and more.

If you are searching for a good camera drone for under $300, the Contixo F20 Drone might be ideal. Equipped with GPS, this quadcopter is designed to meet the requirements of both beginners and experienced drone pilots. In that respect, it bears comparison with other similarly priced drones on the market, like the HS700 Ophelia, Spark Drone and Mirage Pro. Most drones like these, which have GPS modules, sell for $150 or more. Weighing in at under one pound, the F20’s black body and green markings look sleek and stylish. This model has a carry case included too, and it comes preassembled, so you will not have much to do before you can start flying it. The carry case is generously padded, so if you drop it accidentally the drone will not be damaged.

Model Information

Inside the box of the F20 is the drone itself, a 7.4V 1800mAh lipo battery, a remote control, a propeller set, and various accessories. These include a five GHz 1080p wifi camera, a screwdriver tool set, a smartphone holder, a USB charger plug, and an instruction manual. The propellers do not have to be removed when you pack the drone. This means that the drone is virtually ready for flying, once you reach your destination. The battery on the F20 is modular, so you can charge it while it is not in the drone. Therefore, you can use a spare battery while the other one is charging. The stated flying time for the battery is fifteen to twenty minutes, although some customers dispute this. The battery takes three hours to charge.

Features

The Contixo F20 Drone is made from strong materials, including stainless steel and ABS plastic, which gives it an amazing toughness. This is vital for novices, who need a good quality quadcopter capable of withstanding damage, and also a drone that can be flown outdoors and indoors. The F20 uses motors that are brushless, which are much better than the brushed motors used on toy drones, like the SIMREX X300C and Thunderbolt. This is because brushless motors create less friction, so their power consumption is lower. These motors are magnetically powered, so their speed and propulsion force is higher. This is key, because the F20’s design needs additional power to remain stable. As well as being powerful, brushless motors also have a longer lifespan than brushed motors, and they make less noise.

The 1080P camera on the F20 can be remotely adjusted, up to ninety degrees. While the resolution could be better, it is fine for normal photos and videos. The five GHz wifi has a connection range of 300 meters. To use the First Person View feature, the Contixo app has to be downloaded — and you can do this freely. This app operates seamlessly with a variety of mobile technologies. It allows you to see things from the drone’s perspective, while it is airborne, just like you were in the drone. The smartphone holder facilitates this feature.

All features of the quadcopter are accessible through the remote control, which has a 600 meter connection range — an impressive distance indeed. The drone can perform intelligent flying modes, like Waypoint Mode and Headless Mode. The flight path can be customized and produce stunning aerial footage. For example, with Orbit Mode, you can get the drone to fly around you clockwise, while capturing video footage.

The F20’s inbuilt GPS module allows it to receive satellite data, to achieve precise hovering positions. The drone can be set at different heights and held there, to capture aerial footage from that standpoint. You will always know where the drone is, because its’ location will be displayed on your smartphone, with the specially designed app included. Thanks to the satellite technology, the drone will fly home when the battery gets too low. Also, the GPS module allows you to use Follow Me Mode, if you want the drone to follow you around.

The Contixo F20 Drone is designed to be quick, responsive and simple for novices to fly. With straightforward intuitive controls and a flexible speed mode, people who have never used a drone before will be flying skillfully soon after take off.

What Others are Saying

At this present moment, the F20 is rated 4.3 stars out of five stars on Amazon, based on ‎139 reviews. The only negative point that some customers make about this quadcopter is how long it takes to charge the battery. It is praised in all other areas. Customers appreciate the drone’s lightweight design, the user friendly and responsive remote control, the decent camera, the fast sixty km/h speed, and the low price point. Many customers mention the drone’s outstanding durability and performance. One customer even commented that she had used the drone successfully in her large vegetable garden, to frighten birds away so that they did not eat her vegetables.
