I’m very happy with my Spark, and have no intention of buying one, but I wonder if anyone has bought or at least tried the Drone Pro? A lot of marketing hype going on and I suspect the realities quite different ...)

The DroneX has previously been sold under the name Eachine E58 for a few years. It doesn't have the build quality, feature set or reliability of DJI product -- far from it!

But for $80 it looks like a lot of fun if somebody is just looking for a cheap toy and isn't serious about the hobby. They copied the design of the Mavic Pro exactly but it is more of a competitor to the Tello in size and capability.

Here's a good review and demo...

I have a visuo drone (Mavic clone), very similar to drone X pro.

It's a toy. Very unstable, with very limited capabilities.
It can fly in a distance of 30-40 m around, in no-wind environment.

But it's useful to learn how to fly in ATTI mode.

Ya, this is what I have also, and its really only good for windless short range flights. If someone is looking for a toy drone I would recommend that whatever you choose, get one with optical flow technology, its far superior to the old barometer altitude hold stuff like the XS890HW I have. Seems like the videos showing those optical flow toy drones are far more stable.

That was my first drone this year. Day 1, got hit by a gust of wind, stuck in a tree and burned one of the motors out trying to escape.

Drone #2 was a Hubsan with GPS that was last seen stuck up a tree as it went out of range and had no avoidance sensors.

Drone #3 is a Spark :)
