XK X100: A Micro RC Drone for the Pros!

XK is a brand that makes some interesting RC drones. The X250, X350, et al are quadcopters from XK that happen to be extremely popular among intermediate pilots.

The newest from the brand is the XK X100. Unlike other releases from XK, the X100 is actually a micro quadcopter. However, it isn’t really meant for first-time pilots.

Let’s take an in-depth look at the XK X100 “Dexterity” micro quadcopter drone.

XK X100 3D Quadcopter Features

What you’ll notice first about the X100 is that it comes with a controller that allows you to switch between 3D and 6D modes. What does this mean? In other words, you’ll be able to fly the X100 in acrobatic or ‘acro’ mode, thereby allowing much greater control over the aircraft compared to other micro quadcopters.

Since it’s a really small machine, it doesn’t have enough space for brushless motors, which is why the X100 has coreless ones.

Design wise, the X100 is extremely similar to the Floureon H101, which is 1/4th its price.

Coming back, another highlight of the XK X100 is that it is compatible with the Futaba S-FHSS protocol. This means that you can hook the quadcopter up with much more advanced radios than what you get in the RTF package.

The aircraft measures 140 x 140 x 40 mm, and features a 250mAh battery. You can get hold of the X100 for around $55 for the RTF package via stores like Banggood, Geekbuying, and perhaps even Amazon.
