Apparently Chinese drone manufacturers really enjoy experimenting with shapes and, after the egg-shaped quadcopter, we now have a new apple-shaped one – yes, you read that correctly. Let’s check out the latest eccentric aircraft coming out of China!
The drone in question is technically named “RC130WGH Little Apple” but we’re sure nobody will get offended if we simply call it the Little Apple drone. The aircraft comes in two versions, the first sports a 0.3MP camera, meanwhile the more advanced one packs a 2.0MP shooter. The camera is also highlighted by a creepy eye staring at you at all times.
Camera aside, the Little Apple drone features retractable arms which turn it into an apple when folded, we then have Altitude Hold mode, One Key Return and WiFi FPV to have a live view of the drone’s camera on your smartphone.
The RC130H is powered by a 3.7V 300mAh Lipo battery for about four to five minutes of flight time.
