ZLRC SG906 Pro 2 Review
There are a lot of good things about this drone and one of its best features is its overall design. This is definitely one of the best-looking drones on the market, it kind of reminds me of the more advanced Zino Pro.
The drone has a compact foldable design, this makes it great to carry around and a good drone to travel with. It’s not a very big drone and it comes with its own carry case, which is always a plus as it saves you money from having to purchase a separate drone case of your own.
The drone has an all-black colour scheme and comes LED lights on each of its rotor arms. These lights are not bright enough to fly during the night but they do serve a couple of purposes, they flash in certain ways when the drone compass has been fully calibrated (something you need to do before every flight) and they help troubleshoot any problems you may have with the drone.
Another advanced feature of this drone is that it comes with brushless motors, most drones in this price range have the inferior brushed motors, so for a drone under $200 to come with brushless motors is awesome. Brushless motors allow the drone to fly more smoothly and hover more accurately and even allows the drone to stay stable if it is windy.
They also last longer, are more efficient and allow the drone to fly faster, this drone comes with several speed modes which will allow you to test your flying skills as you become more confident.
The drone comes with dual GPS systems which provide it with additional benefits such as tracking the drone on the app and allowing for the drone’s autonomous flight modes and its automatic return to home feature.
There is also an optical flow sensor on the bottom that will allow you to fly the drone in areas where the GPS signal is not so strong.
It has a flight time of around 26 minutes, this is very good for a drone that costs less than $200. The reason for its above-average flight time is because it is powered by a 7.6v 3400 mAh lithium polymer battery.
One thing I always advise people about drones is to purchase extra batteries if you want to extend the flight time, this is because drone batteries take a few hours to fully recharge and so buying an extra battery will mean you can continue to fly without having to wait for the batteries to charge up.
As for the drone remote controller, it has a simplistic design, it has curved edges, so is comfortable to hold and the buttons are clearly labelled so you know what they do.
There is a smartphone holder that pulls out from the top and it has a nice LED screen near the bottom that displays data about the drone. The controller is powered by 4 AA batteries that are not included with the drone package, so if you do decide to purchase this drone, remember to buy some batteries for the controller.
It has a transmission range of around 800 meters and uses 5G WiFi technology to stream live video footage. So you will need a 5G compatible smartphone to fly this drone. To use the drone FPV feature, you will need to download the HFun Pro app, this app is compatible with smartphones running on either Android 5 or later and iOs 8 or later.
It’s a decent drone app that is fairly easy to use and gives you access to a lot more feature like smart flight modes, ability to fly using a VR headset and multiple speed modes. However, it does have its issues, for example, the screen may freeze up during flight or some of the features may not work as they should.
It’s a good drone for under $200, however, if you want more options at this price range, click on the button below.
