The WLtoys V686 series (learn more about it here) is already quite a popular one. In fact, WLtoys’ sister company JJRC too has a V686, which is about equally popular. WLtoys has now launched the WLtoys Q222G which is basically a V686G but with a barometer.

The Q222G quadcopter comes with a 7.4G 1200mAh battery, which although will take quite a while to charge, will result in a decently long flight time.

Thanks to the added barometer, the Q222G can now list altitude hold mode in its repertoire, a feature not a lot of other budget quadcopters feature as of now (although that is all set to change by the end of this year).

  • Model: WLtoys Q222G
  • Size group: Full
  • Battery: 1200mAh, 7.4V
  • Camera: HD
  • Headless mode: Yes
  • Other: One key return, altitude hold
  • Price: $116 shipped

There’s headless mode along with one key return that the WLtoys Q222G also features. As always, I am apprehensive about the efficacy of the one key return feature on quadcopter drones that don’t feature GPS modules.

FPV on the WLtoys Q222G is handled by a 5.8GHz transmission system and a camera that is capable of recording HD (1280 x 720p) video. It also comes with a bundled 4GB microSD card for you to store your video and pictures on.

The WLtoys Q222G is available for purchase, you can order one too.
