Potensic T25 GPS drone Review
First, let’s talk about the appearance of the drone. The Potensic T25’s design is very similar to the famous DJI Phantom 4 Pro. The Potensic T25 is a very elegant model with a modern style. The noble white color adds elegance to its appearance. The drone has a classic quadcopter look. Its propellers remain unprotected all the time, so for safety reasons it is better not to approach the drone while it is operating.
The Potensic T25 measures 10.6 x 10.6 x 4.7 inches and weighs 3.95 pounds. The case material is high quality plastic. This is a fairly small drone that is controlled from a remote control. The drone’s remote control fits easily in the hands, all joysticks and buttons are convenient to use. It looks like a puslet for a modern video game. A phone holder is attached to the remote control. Video from the drone can be directly transferred to the phone through the application and in real time you can see the panorama from the drone camera.
The Potensic T25 GPS drone is made for hobbyists. Professionals are more likely to choose more highly functional models. But my competent opinion is that the Potensic T25 is ideal for hobbyists and beginners in active learning. The Potensic T25 is exactly the drone that is presentable to get out of the case and can be bragged to friends and comrades.
The drone’s flight range is 500 meters without video recording and about 400 meters with video recording.
The Potensic T25 is equipped with its own video camera, which is located at the bottom of the drone. More about the camera in the next section of this article.
Potensic T25 GPS drone Camera
The drone is equipped with a fairly powerful camera. The Potensic T25 drone has a 1080p HD camera that captures really high quality photos and videos. The camera lens is equipped with a 120 ° field of view lens, allowing you to take panoramic shots. Also, this drone model has the function of changing the camera tilt angle by 75 °. This will allow you, without changing the tilt angle of the drone itself, to select convenient tilt angles for photo and video shooting.
The camera provides digital stabilization for videos and photos. For the amateur level, this will be enough. You will get crisp, blurry photos and videos for viewing on home gadgets.
Very convenient is the ability to broadcast video to your phone in real time. The Potensic T25 drone connects to the phone via a dedicated app, and the phone is fixed to the holder on top of the remote control. This is very convenient because the phone does not need to be held in hand and nothing interferes with the control of the drone.
The Potensic T25 comes with geared up with dual GPS + 9 axis Gyrospace. The drone in flight mode will not be interfered with by light or medium wind. Of course, we do not recommend launching any drone in strong winds. regardless of the level of stabilization, there are risks of damaging the drone, which will be very disappointing. But I want to note that the T25 drone has a fairly strong and progressive stabilization thanks to the developers of the Potensic company. Therefore, you can experience extreme in windy weather with Potensic T25.
But the wind, especially strong, can affect the quality of the video. The drone’s video camera is not equipped with a gimbal for video stabilization.
Potensic T25 Battery
The Potensic T25 drone comes with 2 1000mAh batteries each. These batteries can be recharged using the charging cable. On a full charge, the drone can fly for up to 10 minutes. But it’s important not to forget that you can buy additional batteries. This will allow you to get the most out of your drone control.
The Potensic T25 GPS drone is equipped with a range of features including classic and smart features. Only very expensive drones or drones with above average pricing are often equipped with smart features. But the manufacturer has included two completely irreplaceable smart features in the T25 package, namely “Follow me” and “Custom Flight Plan”. Having these two features will make you feel like you own a powerful, expensive drone.
So, let’s take a closer look at intelligent functions.
Custom Flight Plan – This feature is also activated via the app on your phone. You can plan and draw the path of the drone in advance using the app. The drone will exactly repeat the path given to it. At the end of the T25 it will return to its original location.
Follow me – This feature is activated using an app on your phone. The drone will follow you regardless of your route. Where you move – the drone will follow you. This feature is especially useful for video recording and frees you from additional drone control.
Intelligent functions allow even beginners with no flying experience to fly the drone. This will minimize the potential damage to the drone due to the inexperienced pilot.
The Potensic T25 drone has a return home button. You can use this button in case you lose sight of the drone, need to quickly return the drone without additional control on your part, in case of low battery power.
The Potensic T25 can have the above smart features due to the fact that the drone includes double GPS modules.
Consider other classic drone features such as:
9 Axis -Gyroscope – the gyroscope provides the drone with stability in flight. But usually in drones under $ 200, manufacturers use a 6-axis gyroscope. Therefore, the Potensic T25 is already significantly different from its competitors. The manufacturer did not economize and tried to minimize the cost of his product. 9 Axis -Gyroscope stabilizes the drone in the wind and you get better photos and videos as a result than on similar models.
Headless Mode – This is a mode thanks to which beginners can easily control the quadcopter in any direction, because the function will control the current position of the quadcopter relative to the control panel. In simple words, it doesn’t matter where the front of the quadcopter is directed, therefore, tilting the stick on the remote control to tilt the quadcopter to the right – the drone will tilt or turn to the right. The drone in Headless mode will turn relative to your current position, not its own.
3 Speed Modes – you choose the speed mode yourself (one of three). We advise you to take into account the level of your drone control skills, ease of control, the presence of obstacles, and more. The higher the flight speed of the drone, the more skills you should have in controlling the drone.
Flight Time – the basic flight time on a single charge is up to 10 minutes. This is not enough to enjoy the flight and control of the drone. Still, this flight time fits the category of this drone. In this characteristic, the Potensic T25 is on a par with its competitors.
Smart Battery- The batteries are equipped with LED indicators to monitor the charge level. At the moment of reaching a low battery level, the drone will automatically (independently) activate the return home function. This feature will allow you to avoid dropping and losing the drone due to dead batteries.
