Xin Lin X118: 5.8GHz FPV enabled CX-20 clone drone

Cheerson CX-20 lookalike goes on sale with bundled camera, 5.8GHz FPV for about half the price


Cheerson’s super tiny CX-10 (review) and the GPS enabled CX-20 are perhaps two of its most popular quadcopter drones. There have been numerous clones and ripoffs of the CX-10, but this is the first time that I came across a CX-20 doppelganger.

Known as the Xin Lin X118, this quadcopter drone inherits its looks from the CX-20 and adds some cool features to it. This incldues 5.8GHz WiFi along with a 5-inch LCD monitor on the transmitter, all for a meager sum of $140.

That’s not a bad price to pay for an FPV drone I feel, but there’s no real reviews of this one as such (I haven’t done one too, and it isn’t likely that I do). The camera is a 0.3MP sensor, so video won’t really high definition but should suffice for FPV (if you’ve done it before, that is).

It comes with an 850mAh battery which according to the listing translates to 5-6 minutes of flight time. The Xin Lin X118 quadcopter drone can be bought from GearBest for $140.
