WLtoys V272 2.4G 6 Axis GYRO Nano RC Quadcopter RTF

WLToys has come up with the smallest operational and nano quadcopter, the V272. Packed in a ready-to-fly kit, the V272 is also compatible with WLToys V262, V212, V202 and V222 transmitters. Though it is super mini, the V272 is not a child’s toy as the recommended age for flying this quadcopter is 14 years old.

Specifications and Features

The V272 has an integrated gyroscope for stable flying and maneuverability.  It has an armored aircraft design rendering this quadcopter quite sturdy to absorb crashes and bumps. Unique in this quadcopter is its mode 2 left hand throttle capability where a flier throws the quad up in the air, hits the throttle and the quadcopter will right and level itself on air.

This tiny miniature quadcopter is a breeze to fly indoors. It is equipped with a beginner-friendly 4-channel capability and a fitting position-recovery technology. The V272 is capable of doing unlimited 360° eversion and four flight modes of 40%, 60%, 80% and 100%. The 2.4GHs transmitter has a digital trim and does not require frequency control making the V272 quite safe to operate.wltoys v272 package

The weight of the V727 nano quad is 13.8g including the battery. The dimension is 47x47x25mm. The battery is a 3.7V 100mAh Li-Po with a charging time of about 30 minutes and approximately 5 minutes of flight. It is more practical to buy an extra battery for a more satisfactory flight time. However, caution should be observed so as not to heat-up the motor.

Flight of the V272

wltoys v272The V272 responds to the control up to a maximum distance of 40 meters.  Its shockproof structure makes it perfect for indoor and outdoor flights. The very tiny quadcopter is engineered as a larger quadcopter but its flight is nothing like the bigger ones.

The remote control functions prods the V272 to go up/down, forward/backward, right/ left turns, hovers and 360° flips on air. However, the V272 flight is not actually precise and nimble as there are few glitches that mar a satisfactory flight.

The V272 is not really easy to fly in tight spaces due to its slow self-leveling and over-correction capabilities.  It has the tendency to drift depending on different predicaments and not limited to the battery’s charge level. The propellers fall off without much prodding and the extremely slow yaw negatively affects flying and banking in tight spaces.

These glitches contribute to poor flight experience as it is almost impossible to not constantly bump and crash into walls. However, flying the V272 outdoors on a calm and breezeless day, the flight experience is better. It is even possible to flip the quadcopter.  One must take note though that this nano quad’s maximum distance is only meters.

Pros and Cons

One advantage of the V272 is its price.  It is compact and does not take up much space to store. It has the capabilities of larger quadcopters and 4 modes of difficulty which makes this quadcopter a good choice for beginners. USB charging cable makes charging very convenient. The material is quite hardy to absorb dents and dings.

A disadvantage is its size! There is no point of having a nano quadcopter that is hard to fly in tight spaces and flown outside only on breezeless days.  The flight is short at 5 minutes.

Conclusion

WLToys assures buyers that each V272 was setup and tested by their technicians before delivery. The V272 mini quad was designed for all pilots but it is safe to say the newbie will have difficulty flying this quad indoors. For its price, the V272 is a good-enough buy.
