Interestingly named quad maker — TECHBOY — have come out with an as much interesting drone with a special remote controller, the Techboy TB-802. Let’s learn more about this somewhat innovative drone!
The Techboy TB-802 drone itself is actually nothing out of the ordinary, it comes with basic functions such as Headless Mode and 3D flips capability, other than that it also features a plastic frame to protect the propellers from hitting objects on the way.
The most interesting part about the TECHBOY TB-802 is its innovative motion remote controller, or at least that’s how to company calls it. This weird looking controller looks like a mouse and it’s intended to be used as one, the only difference is that you’ll be moving your drone left, right, forward and backward instead of a cursor on a screen.
On the left side of the motion controller we find six buttons which are used for: speed adjustment, 3D flips, height adjustment, auto take off and landing, power switch and turning.
The TECHBOY TB-802 is fueled by a 280mAh capacity battery for a flight time of about 5 to 8 minutes.
