Today we’re checking out the PEG116 which is a new quadcopter that features folding arms, WiFi FPV, altitude hold, separated blades, headless mode, one key return, and up to 8 minutes of flight time.
This has to be the 10th folding quadcopter released this month and is nothing revolutionary. The arms fold into the body making it more compact when storing or transporting and the blades themselves are separated making them less likely to get damaged.
The camera is mounted to the front of the quadcopter at a fixed forward facing angle and streams video over WiFi FPV straight to your phone. Video is going to also be recorded to your phone which means that this won’t have the highest quality and is going to be susceptible to latency/signal quality.
Video latency can be a problem when flying WiFi FPV capable quadcopters when it comes to managing the throttle over a WiFi connection. Fortunately they’ve given the PEG116 altitude hold which manages the throttle for you.
The transmitter included with this quadcopter is relatively small featuring longer style control sticks and buttons for various features like headless or flip mode.
In addition to being able to view video on the phone app you can also use it to control the quadcopter without the transmitter easily again thanks to the altitude hold.
Overall the PEG116 is not a bad looking quadcopter, certainly nothing new but still not bad looking. Altitude hold and WiFi FPV are a great combination when it comes to features so I think that flight experience with this one will be decent. Click the button below to pick one up for yourself.
