LiDiRC got a new drone model, a quadcopter drone and a car at the same time. But unlike other drone car, that is a car and a drone in one, the LiDiRC L18 allows you to tweak your drone in to a car and back to a quadcopter drone, with its features you have to manually set and transform your drone into a car and vice versa, which is far different from other drone car models, see our list.
Anyways let’s get to know the LiDiRC L18 drone. Let’s have a review/preview of the drone.
Controlling the Drone – the drone does have a headless mode, a one key return and high/medium low speed option. We are just not sure whether the one key return also works in car mode, but there is a huge chance that it will not. Other flying features of the drone includes 3D stunt, sideward flight with a 250 mAh battery the drone has an 8-10 minutes of flight time with a control distance of 50 meters.
Features and Accessories – the L18 is a car drone, you can switch it to a drone by removing some of its parts and attaching its propellers, propeller protector and other attachments, it’s a do it yourself car drone. It’s a lot of work just to convert it to a car and vice versa but I’m pretty sure it’s a lot of fun, especially for teens.
