About DroneX Pro

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Jan 3, 2019

The DroneX Pro is a three-speed drone with a 720p HD camera and a variety of features that make it a highly-rated drone among enthusiasts and tech sites.

The drone’s website says some of its more appealing features are that you can fold up the drone when you aren’t using it, that it’s lightweight and that it has a gravity sensor that automatically moves the drone away from possible collisions.

The company behind DroneX Pro is called Novads OU and is based in Estonia. Their website is www.hyperstech.com, on which we noticed that the company sells multiple electronic products. For example, they see a portable A/C unit, a USB car charger, a security camera, and a powered wine bottle opener.

In this review, we’ll talk about the DroneX Pro works, its features, how much it costs and what customers are saying about it.

How the DroneX Works and Its Features

To operate the DroneX Pro, you’ll power it on and then do a one-button touch in order to get it to take off. From there, you’ll use a two-joystick remote control to guide the craft.

The remote control has a special attachment into which you can slide your phone. You’ll use the DroneX Pro app to view the camera footage the drone is taking as it flies.

So, in one device you have the ability to steer your drone as well as monitor its camera. Promo videos for the drone indicate that it can perform 360-degree loops simply by pressing a button, which means you can do a horizontal loop, turning the drone upside down for a split-second before it returns to its right-side-up position.

There is a pair of buttons on the remote control that provides auto take-off and auto-landing.

As we mentioned earlier, the Drone X Pro has a built-in sensor that will override the controls in a situation in which the craft could collide with an object.

The craft’s website says it can fly “at a speed of up to 19 meters per second,” which equates to around 42.5 miles an hour.

The drone’s camera has a frame-per-second rate of 120. A frame rate of this speed allows you to turn your videos into slow-motion videos while maintaining quality.

Other facts about the camera are as follows:

  • Can take 12MP photos
  • Has a 120-degree viewing range
  • Can do panorama mode

Finally, the DroneX Pro’s website says you can “fly and film for up to 21 minutes,” which means it can stay airborne that long without having to land it or recharge it.

The DroneX Pro’s Pricing, Return Policy and Warranty

At the time of publishing, the DroneX Pro has the following price points:

  • One drone: $99
  • Two drones: $159
  • Three drones: $197
  • Four drones: $249
  • Five drones: $297
  • 10 drones: $549

Shipping is free on all orders.

We looked through the DroneX’s fine print and found important information about the item’s return policy and its warranty.

Each drone has a 30-day return period that only applies to unopened drones. To start a return, you’ll need to email support@hyperstech.com. You can also call the company 24 hours a day at +44 20-3808-9234.

You’ll need to get a returned material authorization number that you’ll write down on the paperwork you send back with your drone. Keep in mind you’ll have to pay return shipping, which will cost at least $10 for U.S. residents since the company is based in Europe.

The company provides a three-year warranty for an additional $24. This warranty covers “defects in materials or workmanship” and does not cover damage resulting from misuse, modifications or negligence.

When you file a claim, you’ll have to pay to ship the replacement parts.

In order to file a claim, you’ll need the invoice number from your original purchase as well as the receipt.

Customer Reviews and Product Comparisons

Finding reviews of this particular drone model was a bit difficult but we were able to dig up an insightful YouTube review that had comments from users who seemed to be drone enthusiasts.

The reviewer, Big5 Adventures and Reviews, noted that he had trouble linking the drone to the controller, that the 360-degree spin button didn’t work and that he’d paid for a 1080p camera resolution upgrade but received a 720p drone.

He went on to say that it’s pretty easy to fly the drone both indoors and outdoors. On the negative side, the reviewer said that the battery on the drone lasted seven minutes, not the 21 minutes the website says.

The reviewer gave the drone a 3 out of 5. He also pointed out something quite interesting: that the drone is similar to other drones sold by third-party companies.

We looked into this and discovered “Emolion Drone” visible on the body of the DroneX Pro. We googled this name and found drones all over the internet that look exactly like the DroneX Pro for far cheaper.

For example, Walmart sells the exact same drone for $59.99 with free shipping.

We went back to the comments section of the YouTube review and discovered that several people also noted the fact that the DroneX Pro is a copy of the Eachine E58, which is a mini copy of the DJI Mavic Pro, a far more expensive drone that is known for its quality workmanship and function.

A lengthy review we watched from drone-review channel DroningON had high praise for the drone: “What a great little drone. A really well-built drone and brilliant fun to fly.”

The one drawback of the remote control, which looks exactly like the DroneX Pro, is that the phone holder may press the side buttons on your phone.

Because the DroneX PR and the E58 are different products, we can’t guarantee that what applies to one drone applies to the other. However, from the look of the two machines, we believe there may be some overlap in how the crafts fly and operate.

At the time of publishing, the E58 was $60.99 at Walmart.

Some Closing Thoughts About the DroneX Pro

Based on our research of this drone, we find it to be a very interesting option. All the markings on it and the name – “Emoilon Drone” are exactly the same as the E58, which means that it could actually be a solid drone in terms of how it flies and the overall quality of the build.

This good news for the quality of the DroneX Pro. However, it brings up an interesting choice for you. The drone ships from Europe for $99. What seems to be the exact same drone – the E58 – is available for $60.

We believe that the E58 from Eachine offers a better value based on the opinions of drone experts who tested the E58.

Regardless of which drone you choose, Patrick Egan, a drone expert and editor at drone publication sUAS News, said to read over the Federal Aviation Administration’s regulations for flying unmanned aerial vehicles.

“Prospective buyers should visit the FAA webpage and read about the rules and registration,” Egan told us. “You don’t want to buy something and figure out that you can’t fly it because you live in close proximity to an airport or some other restrictions.”

    Second use, one blade set motor failed.

    Tried recommend reset, no joy.

    This is junk.

  • You get (a little less) what you pay

    Where to start...

    The manual is quite a waste of paper. Listening to the ad you are led to believe that people that speak English would have written the manual.

    The battery life is very short (I have 2).

    Trying to calibrate the joysticks - if someone can figure it out from the manual they deserve a hero's medal.

    The lights on the drone are not visible for orientation, making it very hard to fly.

    It has no return home (as far as I can figure). It just "lands" where ever it is.

    Took a long time to get it.

    Look at the YouTube reviews.

  • Doesn't fly and NO support

    • By Gene P.,

    Bought 2 as Christmas presents for my grandsons. One doesn't fly, just squeals and slides sideways. Let me mention I also purchased extended warranty. Contacted the company and they asked for a video of the problem, which I sent. They replied with directions on how to fly and asked for more video, which I provided, and got more direction on how to fly. Now recall I purchased 2; if I can fly 1 and not the other, I don't need directions. The company just keeps jerking me around with no intention of resolving this. The DroneX is nothing more than an emotion E58 Drone with over double the price tag. Don't buy from them and definitely don't fall for the extended warranty. Just throw your money out the window, it will save time.

  • Definitely not worth the money

    • By Randy L.,

    It did take quite a while to receive, they had no way to contact them. When I finally got it I took it out after reading the directions which are poorly written. Powered up when up about 3 or 4' And then just took off heading North and it wouldn't respond at all. I have 2 other drones they're actually real ones but I thought this one would be good for backpacking. I did figure out a way to text them, their only response was I should be running after it. I have no way of knowing how far it goes on and I live out in the country with little valleys. That would be like looking for a needle in a haystack. I just feel like they could have been a little bit more understanding and maybe had some sort of customer service.

  • Don't buy - SCAM

    • By Lisa M.,

    Having read the above, I concur with you all. I ordered two DroneX Pro's, case, and extra blades for both.

    What I received was as below;

    Drone one, no battery.

    Drone two, propellers appear "used" and not attached to the drone.

    Third propeller screws are missing.

    No extra blades or case arrived.

    Numerous stalling emails i.e. sorry, we sent you a new parcel (not received), and in the end when I became a little more demanding of answers, they did not reply to my follow-up emails.

    I have two useless drones that are a serious waste of plastic, and remain out of pocket. I was shocked by how these things continued to be advertised.

  • Scam

    Upon opening the package I was very disappointed. Looked nothing like the ad video. Tried to return and got no response from the seller. The seller's website was removed. I paid with PayPal and still couldn't get this scam resolved. Also purchased the 3-year free replacement contract. Come to find out that was a scam too.

    I'm very upset with this purchase.

  • Bad choice

    My first flight it went up and was non-responsive to anything but up and it just veered away and kept going till it was out of sight never to be found. What a waste of $100. Just up and gone. They say it has a warranty but not if you have nothing to return but the controller. I have seen other reviews that this drone is a scam but I didn't see it soon enough.

  • Trouble

    Got the DroneX Pro. Does not seem to have GPS. Takes off too quick, no throttle control. No low speed, just takes off and crashes.

    Instructions are written in very terrible broken English. Almost worthless instruction manual. Battery life is a joke. If the manual was good, maybe the product would be ok.

    Contacted Support@hyperstech.com through online chat. They refused to give me a return address. Just said I would get a refund to my credit card in 7 to 10 working days.

    Bad product.

  • The company has no after sales service

    My drone arrived crushed. I emailed the company and they said send a photo of it and the (styrofoam) box. I did that, three times, but they didn't reply. So that leads me to believe they are just scammers. 1 out of 10 for them.

    Loved the promo. Bought one so I can scan landscapes and terrain while out bush. Received in the mail after 2 weeks and was glad to have a new toy, unboxed, instructions read, battery charged, ready to go. NO CAMERA, NO FRONT LED lights so I would have trouble knowing which way it's facing. And going by reviews there is no point returning or warranty claims. Have had it for 3 days at the time of this review. Mine came from China.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
