Yesterday I posted the unboxing and initial impression of the Cheerson CX-10WD. Now that I’ve had the CX-10WD for several days and have taken it for numerous flights, let’s discuss some of the positive and negatives of this FPV nano quad… and determine if it’s a worthy entry into the nano FPV world.
Cheerson CX-10WD Review: Pros & Cons
- Nicely designed adjustable width transmitter
- FPV video is decent quality for a nano
- Very smooth, stable flyer
- Great for flying indoors or outdoors on a calm day
- Automatic takeoffs and landings
- Altitude hold feature works surprisingly well
- Phone holder is nicely designed though it may require you to remove your case
- Well translated English instruction manual
- Very short flight time of only around 3 mins
- Not the most agile flyer
- Heavy for a nano quad
- Occasionally doesn’t recover from 3D flips
- Google Play Store app is outdated as of the date of this article
If you use the Play Store app, then you can’t fly with the Tx while watching the FPV feed. You need the newer app from the Chinese app store. (There is an update on the Play Store today, July 22nd, that likely is the newest version)

So now that we’ve covered the Pros and Cons, let’s get on to my flight review video.

Cheerson CX-10WD Review: Final Thoughts
The CX-10WD is a nice little stable flyer that comes attractively stored in a case on the very stylish and well designed adjustable width transmitter. However it’s very short flight time of around 3 mins makes it tough to justify unless you can find it at good price.
The pros and cons list should sums it up. It’s available for around $38 from most vendors though you can snatch it up at GearBest for $33.50 using coupon code “JRWD1”.
