The QC10 uses a 6 axis gyroscope to ensure the drone stays stable and level, even with wind. With a lightweight core the drone QC10 is lightweight and manoeuvrable yet robust for small bumps and falls. The included remote control has 4 channels and uses the 2.4Ghz band for reliable long-distance transmission. Four small yet powerful and efficient brush-less motors drive four rotor blades (which are replaceable and a spare set is included).

Altitude hold mode on a drone allows the aircraft to maintain a roughly consistent altitude. This feature is achieved most commonly via use of an ultrasonic sensor. This feature makes take off and landing much easier, by automating the action.
Drones with a headless mode are generally easily to fly. Headless mode stops a drone’s ability to rotate left and right. So essentially, if placed in a forward facing direction at take-off, the front of the drone will always stay front facing and land in a front facing position. If the headless mode is disengaged, the drone will be able to rotate left and right and by introducing this extra axis to control, will therefore tend make flying a bit more challenging.
One button take off and landing
Take off and landings are the trickiest part of flying. With a one-button take- off, this automates the process and makes take-offs and landings much easier and helps to avoid damage from accidental crashes.
360 degree flip and roll
Flips are rolls are mid-air stunts. A flip is a forward facing 360 degree rotation and a roll is a sideways 360 degree rotation. When your drone is about 5 meters above the ground, simple press on of the stunts buttons to enact each stunt.
This feature controls how fast the drone reacts to the controls, or in other words how nimble it will behave. Slow speed will see the Drone slowly react to controls and will therefore be much easier to fly. This is especially good while learning to fly. The fast speed setting however will see the drone react very quickly to controls and is something more advanced users will enjoy.
Recording and or watching drone footage through VR goggles adds a new level of reality to drone videos. There are various goggles available however Goggle cardboard would have to be one of the more common.
Where required, the video capture of your drone can be inversed or flipped, essentially making the sky on the bottom and the ground at the top of recorded images.
With all the bangs and bumps a drone takes, sometimes it needs a little tune up to keep it in the best running condition. If your drone is off centre and is slowly drifting to one side when it is supposed to be stationery for example, you may need to calibrate the internal gyroscope. To do this, simply place the drone on a flat level surface. Turn the drone ON then press the gyroscope calibration button. This will reset and equalise all the sensors (so to speak), to give your drone the best chance at optimal flying control again.
