Snaptain SP700 Drone Review

Snaptain SP700 Drone Review 2020 – is the Snaptain SP700 quadcopter worth the money? Review of features, pricing, flight duration, battery, camera and more.

If you are searching for a quadcopter that is enjoyable to fly, the Snaptain SP700 Drone might be it. You can tell, just by the way it is designed, that it is great fun to use — because there are few drones that look like it. Your friends will be impressed by this drone, which has an appealing army camouflage color. However, there is more to the SP700 than its’ appearance. Let’s take a closer look at what this drone can do, to see whether it represents a smart investment.

Product Features

With GPS integration, this quadcopter has sophisticated flight settings that can help you fly smoothly, and capture some amazing video footage. The ‘Follow Me’ setting will make the drone follow a chosen object, which can be a moving object or a person. The ‘Orbit’ setting will make the drone fly 360 degrees around a chosen object. There are other control features as well, such as the ‘Point of Interest’ and ‘Waypoint’ features.

Perhaps the most significant features are the ‘Altitude Hold’ setting and the ‘Headless’ setting, which are aimed at users with more experience. With Altitude Hold, you can keep the drone at whatever height you want. After setting the height, you just move it in a horizontal direction to take the ideal photograph. The Headless setting allows you to control the orientation of the drone from the remote controller. This way, the drone will fly in whatever direction you push the lever.

There are also a number of safety features on the SP700, which might be of great benefit to you — particularly if you are a novice. This includes ‘Failsafe Alert’, ‘Low Battery Alert’ and ‘Smart Return to Home’. Having access to these features reduces the likelihood of damaging the drone through a technical oversight. This means that even beginners who have never operated a drone before will be able to fly the SP700.

Model Information

The drone is preassembled, so you only have to put the precharged battery in it, then start flying. The drone measures 17.1″ x 12.6″ x 5.4″. Inside the box, along with the drone itself, there is a USB to microUSB charger, a spare propeller blade set, a propeller removal tool, a screwdriver, a remote controller and a balance charger.

Due to its’ plastic ABS casing, the build quality on the SP700 is high. This shields the inner areas of the drone effectively. Also, beneath each propeller, the quadcopter has landing gear. The drone has 1806 1800 kv brushless motors, which are extremely quiet and maintain a safe temperature. Even better, they significantly improve the drone’s performance by giving it the power to withstand strong winds.

The remote controller has a cell phone clip on holder and is user friendly. In addition, it has all the vital functions, like one key landing and take off, one key return, and a key to take photographs and video footage — you press it to take a photo and hold it down to shoot a video. Furthermore, there is an on/off button and a button to switch off GPS mode. You can arm and disarm the motors by pulling the joysticks toward you, and pushing them inwards respectively.

The Snaptain SP700 drone uses a lithium 1800mAh polymer battery, which provides eighteen minutes of flying time. The battery is modular, so there are a couple of bars showing how much power it has remaining. By the same token, the quadcopter emits a beeping noise to alert you, once the battery runs low.

The SP700 has a 2K camera that captures professional standard video footage and photos. The 110 degree viewing field allows you to record incredible images from the air. The 5G wifi connectivity gives you amazing video transmission in real time. Simply download Snaptain’s eco app onto your cell phone, to receive outstanding FPV (First Person View) transmission. A microSD card slot is provided, so you can save your photos and video footage.

How the Drone Compares to Other Models

Snaptain manufactures intermediate and budget drone models, so it competes against many different brands that offer these types of products. The company focuses on drones for children and drones for beginners. Most of Snaptain’s competitors do not produce drones of the same standard as Snaptain. Of course, you will not find a drone from Snaptain that is as good as a premium model – like the DJI Phantom series of drones, for example. However, equally, you will not find a drone from DJI with the affordable price and range of features offered by the Snaptain SP700 Drone.
