Tarantula Spider 1505C Camera Drone Flight Test Review

This inexpensive upgrade to the little maneuverable Tarantula 1505 includes a 720p 2MP camera. Find it here http://shrsl.com/?~bm10 and the cheaper camera-less version here http://shrsl.com/?~bm9m Highly recommend spare batteries http://shrsl.com/?~bmct, http://shrsl.com/?~bmcu, or http://shrsl.com/?~bmcv

Pro’s
– Very maneuverable quadcopter.
– Good range out to about 100 meters.
– 2MP camera with 720p video.
– Comes with needed microSD card and card reader.
– Camera lens tiltable up and down.
– Headless mode and one key return.
– Does not require FAA registration.

Con’s
– The provided battery appears insufficient to simultaneously power both the quadcopter and camera recording. If the camera’s video recorder is left on for prolonged period, the quadcopter will lose power and land. Video recording needs to be turned on and off for short video clips to enable the quadcopter to continue its flight.
– Battery door easily pops open in flight. There is a provided screw to close the door, and it appears to be needed.
