Cheerson’s best known for a couple quadcopters, the very tiny Cheerson CX-10 and the mighty Cheerson CX-20, which comes with GPS and the likes at a very affordable price. Earlier this week, the China-based quadcopter and drone maker announced a rather interesting model in the Cheerson CX-33C.
The CX-33C, with its odd numbers and all, is a tri-copter, i.e. a drone with three arms (as opposed to four on a traditional quadcopter)… but with a twist. There are motors and blades on either side of the tri-copter, i.e. on the top and on the bottom which means there are a total of 6 rotors.
It comes with the next big thing thats set to take over the budget drone space — altitude hold mode, which is accomplished with the help of barometers. Other features of this rather interesting multicopter include one key return (shouldn’t be very reliable) and automatic take off.
The Cheerson CX-33C (across all its variants), as of writing this article, is in pre-order but listed at a starting price of $65 on Banggood.com. Other stores should soon offer this tri-copter.
