If you missed CES 2018 in Las Vegas this year, you really did miss out on an incredible show!.
The atmosphere in Las Vegas was lively as always, but it didn’t take my attention away from the CES as the CES was the main thing I went there for.
Being a major drone lover and addicted myself, I was mostly focused on the drones that are set to be released in 2018.
I want to inform you, if you’re looking for a good drone, there are many different brands and types coming out by some well-known corporations.
In this article review, I want to inform you all about the ByRobot Lightrone, which just came out not too long ago and was something I had the opportunity to look at and test too at the CES 2018.
Looking at the package that the ByRobot Lightrone brings in, I captivated by the amazing colour of this new drone box. They definitely did a great job with the box, but is the drone itself everything you would expect it to be? Let’s find out …
All About the ByRobot
Some people have never heard of this company, and that can be understandable when you’re mostly focused on UVify, DJi and all of those other drone businesses. So, before I get started on the review, I would like to give you a little introduction the company.
ByRobot has been in business for 15+ years with engineers that are passionate about the advancement of robotic technologies in industrial, commercial and military sectors. Their key technologies include wireless communication, embedded systems, computer vision, and sensor fusion.
The Lightrone is their third-generation model as a racing drone, which has a wide-Angle Lens Camera. It has an amazing design with lights and offers a great flight experience.
It is really an amazing drone!!!
The Drone Controller
The controller looks tiny, but when I pick it up, I can’t help but to notice how comfortable it is. Really, it’s just a basic controller. When playing with the thumbstick, I didn’t feel a spring, so I automatically assumed there’s not going to be any altitude control, but next to the joystick, there’s an altitude hold on/off button. The sticks don’t click in, but there’s trigger buttons.
The controller has a place where you can mount the screen, which is really nice.
When you turn the screen on, it takes you straight into the menu. I was astonished when I discovered that it had a DVR. I also saw that on the side of the screen, there is a MicroSD card slot, so you can record your video.
The drone has lights on it and what’s really neat is the fact that you can change those colors. You can choose between red, yellow, green, blue, dark blue, purple and white. I prefer the purplish colour.
Letting the drone Fly
The drone always seems to self-level, which comes in handy. There are four levels of pitching for your rates.
Recording is very easy to do – all you have to do is push enter on top of the screen.
For Whom the ByRobot Lightrone is for
I personally believe the ByRobot Lightrone is very suitable for beginners. So, if you’ve never had a drone before, this could be your first racing drone.
I also believe it would make a great present for an older kid (they’d have a lot of fun with it).
All in all, I believe this is a very nice little drone.
Unfortunately, if you are looking for something that is a bit more professional and with many features, this drone is not suitable for you.
It is, however, suitable for those that are just looking for a drone that they can fly around their home (you can fly this inside your house) and have fun with.
