How Hard it is to fly with Propel Spyder XL!!
This drone is for beginners and is a user-friendly toy. It’s not very difficult to use for first timers. The first thing you need to do is to sync your Spyder Xl with remote.
After doing that, check the blades on the drone. This model has 2 blade models, one pair is for beginners and the second is for high performance flight. When you do that, start motors and begin your flight.
To begin with, I would recommend you to first try some basic moves, like take-off and landing. After you have learned the basic moves, go for your first flight.
It is better to be cautious when flying outdoors as this is a small drone and can easily break or crash if it’s windy outside. Spyder is very agile drone yet a fun toy.back to menu ↑

Unfortunately, Spyder XL Drone doesn’t have First Person View (FPV), but the camera on this quad is very good. It’s a High Definition camera with 720p resolution.
You can record videos and take pictures but you can view the just after the flight. The good thing about this drone is that it has altitude lock button. This makes the pictures and videos stable from any distance.
According to me, the Spyder XL drone has two disadvantages; one the noise that the motors make and the other is the camera angles.
You can sure fix the camera angles after a bit of practice and learn how to take good pictures with those angles. There are two buttons on the transmitter, one for recording and the other to take pictures.back to menu ↑

With a 500 ft range this goes far. Its pretty quick especially for beginners and intermediate flyers, It has a fairly decent camera but lacks FPV. The package came with two spare blades one for beginner/stable/camera handling blade and the other high-performance one.
