The gold F180g is a 6-axis quadcopter for anyone who wants to experience flying a drone without spending a fortune. It's also one of the most affordable, small and fast quads on the market. Despite similarities with other, more expensive drones, the F180 is unique in some ways. Weighing in at 38g with battery and prop guards, the F180 is the type of drone you buy for flying both indoors and outdoors as well. It is also an ideal quadcopter for those who want a drone for training purposes to improve their piloting skills. Being so light and with its flexible prop guards, the F180 is the type of quad you can crash over and over again without ever worrying about seriously damaging it. Crash it as much as you wish in your learning curve as a drone pilot. Even if you're not looking for a trainer drone, the F180 can still be a fun toy to fly since it can move around in tight spaces and perform 360-degree flips in any direction thanks to its 6-axis gyro.
Overall, the F180 is easy to fly and is quite stable in the air. It has a yaw rate that is faster than other models in its class and has a unique way of doing flips. Unlike most other micro quadcopters that flip like pancakes, the F180 lunges in the direction it is being flipped. The flexible prop guards on the F180 provide very good protection not only for the propellers but also for the entire quad. You can crash the F180 hard in any direction and it will come away literary unscathed, probably with only a few minor nicks on its propellers. The motors on the F180 are not too noisy, and have a nice buzz. The F180 comes with a 2.4GHz 4-channel transmitter that has a mini LCD screen for displaying information such as throttle position, flight modes, battery power, radio reception and throttle trim. This is a nice feature to have and sets it apart from other quads in its class. A button on the upper left of the transmitter lets you toggle between 4 difficulty modes - 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%. The button on the upper right is the dedicated "stunt" button. Press this button when the F180 is flying and the F180 is will easily perform a flip.
