Cheerson CX 10 Mini Drone: My Honest Review

It’s important for you to do your own research when looking for a good quadcopter, either as a first foray into UAV’s, or as a new addition to your collection. Recently, I came across the Cheerson CX-10 Mini, and since I liked what I read about it, I would like to share my experience and review with you.

The Cheerson CX-10 mini is a 29mm 4ch 2.4GHZ 6-Axis Gyro LED RC is a lightweight quadcopter that provides great fun for beginners or experienced owners alike. It’s powered by a rechargeable 3.7 100mah lithium battery that can be fully charged in 30-40 minutes, which you will find out comes in handy for fast charging. It’s made from durable ABS plastic and comes in a wide range of colors including bright orange. It’s great for beginners and also experienced hobbyists looking for a small stylish, durable and well manufactured quad. Now I have to confess, the features and benefits Of the CX-10 are what actually caught my eyes.

The CX-10 mini features a 6-axis gyroscope design making it adjustable and promoting good flying stability. It also has a built in flip function with a 3 level adjustable speed setting offering good maneuverability. The lightweight air frame of 29g offers nice durability. Flight times are 4 – 8 minutes with a recharge time of 30 -40 minutes. The control distance is good at 40m and it is suitable for ages 14+ (even adults can have fun using this) But as with any product available on the market, there are both pros and cons. This is something that I could not overlook.

The most defining feature of the Cheerson CX-10 mini, as it’s namesake implies, is its tiny size. That is what makes the CX-10 both a pro and a con. It’s small size makes it both stylish and adaptable. Being able to fit in the palm of the hand means it can be taken anywhere.
However, due to its tiny size, the battery tends to overheat when used frequently, which can result in damage to the motors.

The Package includes 4 extra rotor blades ( which are needed as crashes are frequent with this product), but it does have excellent durability and can bounce back from most minor crashes with no more than a scratch. Steering this tiny quad can be a bit tricky, as it can be difficult to distinguish between the back and front of the quad. However, the built in LED lights can help with this. The lights themselves have a con; they blink when the product has a low battery which can be a little distracting to the flyer.

This quad can be extremely fast which is great for outdoor use, however indoors, this speed can be the culprit of more than one crash. The natural speed of the quad also makes the hover function difficult to use and requires practice from all users. It is extremely sensitive and will crash if tilted too far.

Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned helicopter hobbyist the Cheerson CX-10 mini can and will provide fun for anyone. The CX-10 is great for both teens and kids alike. The nano-sized quad is affordable, comfortable, durable and offers a good value investment.

It’s extremely durable, lightweight and stylish, and its 3 level speed function and easy to use controls, makes it a good choice for flyers of all abilities. It would be a great starting toy for anyone wanting to get in to UAV’s and a great little quad for experienced flyers to add to their collection. I personally recommend this product to flyers of all skill levels. So, are you ready to go out and have some fun flying a drone?
