Welcome to another drone review on RC Drone Arena. This time, we’ll be taking the FQ777 FQ02W for a quick test, and check whether the drone is worth its asking price!
The legs both fold back creating a nice, thin profile. The FQ02W is a cool looking drone. It folds up for easier portability and storage; an idea made popular by the DJI Mavic Pro. It then fits nicely into the provided soft case.
This is a good buy for an intermediate flyer who is looking for a trainer craft before upgrading to a higher class craft. At the time of writing, this can be purchased for only $59.99 at RCMoment (refer to end of post for a $10 coupon).

FQ777 FQ02W: Appearance
This is a really cool design with a really cool purpose. It looks super slick and you would never know it folds from the air. The red color contrasts with the sky and the ground extremely well, so it can be seen quite easily.
The location of the LEDs is ideal, they can be seen from the top and the bottom. They are super bright and can be seen in the day or night.
The power button resembles DJI’s design and is way better than the traditional power switch or automatic power. The lights also show battery level.
FQ777 FQ02W: Flight Characteristics
The flight is good but it could be better. It is a bit labored and slow but it still feels solid. It fights wind without a problem in high rate.
The altitude hold works, but it will still drop in fast forward flight. That’s expected, but it doesn’t seem to correct very well. In slow flight or hover, it is fine.
Low and high rate have large differences in pitch and outdoor flying should be done in high. Low is not enough to fight the wind.
The special features are cool:
- Button A makes it spin fast
- Button B turns the lights on and off
- Button C is the headless mode
- Button D is one key return
The auto take off/land works very well. It lands and shuts off the motors in a very smooth fashion. It looks very impressive.
FQ777 FQ02W: Battery
The battery is proprietary with a JST on it. It slides in and plugs into the ports. It’s a cool design, but it also means you cant use any spare batteries you have laying around.
The included 7.4V 850mAh LiPo battery will fly for about 10 minutes. That is quite impressive for a toy grade like this one. It definitely feels like a long time while flying.
FQ777 FQ02W: Overall
- Great take off/landing
- Many features
- Altitude hold
- Slow flight
- Falls in fast forward pitch
