CX-22 Follow-Me Quadcopter First Look

At First Glance CX-22 almost resembles CX-20 in size and seems to employ the similar plastic for outer shell. The two big leds indicators at the front will draw your first attention, a benefit during night flight. Unlike CX-20 which comes in complete milky white, CX-22 poses dual color, for a better orientation, making the  quadcopter  easily distinguishable from front and back.

CX-22 weighs about 700 grams and can carry upto 500 grams in weight with a flying time of whopping 25 minutes with the stock 11.1 volts 5400 mAh battery, I certainly feel there is a good amount of  upgrades took place for motors to handle the heavy duty. With 5.8GHZ transmitter, the flying and the controlling distance is more than 800 meters and the video transmission range falls between 800 to 1000 meters with a 2-axis brush-less gimbals.

Coincidentally , as i draft this post, i received a newsletter from DJI, that the DJI Phantom 3 standard edition is dropped to $799, seems that DJI is Following CX-22, asking to price right?.  In-deed, all the initial launches are priced high, a market strategy! lets wait and watch how quadcopter flyers will receive this quad!;
