Gearbest is one of the largest rc retailers in the world. Many of the products in their clearance activity – drones, quadcopters, rc cars – are at the lowest price you can find, probably the lowest price in the world. And in this right moment they have BIG PROMOTIONS on the RC drone and cars categories, and they’re for products in US and EU wharehouses!
They can provide the best prices, and shipping is often free worlwide. They basically ship from China, but the good news is that they have warehouses in Europe and in US, so you can buy from there with 2 advantages:
fast shipping, you can have your product in 3-6 days;
no risk of paying a commission to your local customs.
I personally bought many things from GearBest, and all the products were shipped within 24 hours from the order, and I received them in 3 days from the EU warehouse (located in the UK) and in a few days from the China warehouse. For example I bought the top seller drone Cheerson CX-20 and some spare part like the full body shell set and a motor that were accidentally damaged because of a crash during a flight.
So not just Gearbest can offer the best prices, but you can also find a lot of products that are very difficult to find else where and for cheap prices, like spare products for Cheerson CX-20 or for drones in general, or for RC cars.
And that’s not all! Fortunately for us, they make a lot of promotions, with a lot of deals in different categories. Now the best deals are forRC quadcopters and RC cars, so it would be a pity not to take advantage of this offers.
This drone is perfect for racing and not for newbies. This is a new type of amusement, and needs drones built for this purpose. Until now people who wanted racing drones had to build their own, so this segment was not for everyone. With this drone everybody can enjoy a race, even in FPV buying the more expensive FPV version.
This model is suited for flyers who have a decent amount of experience with smaller models and at the very least are comfortable flying in angle (self leveling) mode. While it can certainly carry a small (Mobius, RunCam) video camera, this is NOT a camera drone. These drones typically trade off flight time and ease of use for speed and performance. It does not have a GPS, thus will not hover in place without constant adjustment from the operator. In short, this is not for an absolute beginner. Despite their small size these drones are fast and powerful, and can be a handful to fly for somebody with little to no flight experience. This model is targeted toward somebody who has some flying experience under his belt, is interested in racing or proximity FPV, and is looking for something that’s ready to fly.
