Quadpro Nc5 Nano Quadcopter Review

The Quadpro Nc5 Nano is a nano sized, 4.5 x 4.5 centimeter nano quadcopter, weighing only 13 grams. The quad is well built, it’s available in black with prop guards, and in white without prop guards in a heart-shaped box. The Nc5 Nano is suitable for indoor and outdoor flying too, has LED lights to ease the orientation and night flying,and can do flips on button press.

The Nc5 Nano has a 6 axis stabilization system (3 axis for the gyros and 3axis for the accelerometers), so it’s very stable in the air.

Transmitter trimming and gyro recalibration is supported to fix any stability issues (though this is only needed after hard crashes).

With the prop guards on the Nc5 Nano can take most crashes without any damage. Replacement props are included in the package, so you’ll be able to keep flying even if a prop gets damaged. The props are properly marked, so replacing them is easy.

Unfortunately there aren’t many parts available for this quadcopter, generic propeller replacement kits, like this one for mini quadcopters might work.

The Nc5 is very tiny, so it can’t lift anything substantial. For best results fly outdoors only in calm weather.

The range is 30 to 50 meters, and as the Nc5 uses the 2.4 Ghz technology, it will simply drop out of the air once it goes out of range.

The suggested age according to the manufacturer is 8 years and up, in reality it’s probably 14 years and up. The Nc5 contains small parts, so keep it out of the reach of little children.

The Nc5 Nano supports headless mode, and has sensitivty two settings for beginner and advanced pilots. To toggle the sensitivity, just push the button on the top left of the transmitter. One beep stands for beginner mode, two beeps for advanced mode.

The Nc5 Nano uses brushed motors, which are adequate for such a small quadcopter.

The box dimensions are around 4 x 4 x 6 inches, the shipping weight is 270grams. The box contains everything for flying, except for the transmitter’s batteries (2xAA). As the Nc5 Nano itself is very small, FAA registration is not required.

The Nc5 Nano’s battery

is a 3.7 Volt, 100mAh LiPo battery which grants the Nc5 Nano a 5 minute flight time after 20 minutes of charging. The 20 minute charge time is exceptionally good for such a quadcopter.

Charging is done using the USB charger provided with the quadcopter.Charging is complete when the charger’s LED turns solid. The USB charger is compatible with most USB sockets, including the iPhone charger.

The Nc5 Nano’s plug is similar to other mini quadcopter’s so chargers for other quadcopters could work with it, for example this Cheerson CX-10charger. However there is no designated replacement charger for theNc5 Nano.

The Nc5 Nano has low voltage cutoff, it’s LEDs will start blinking before the battery runs out.

The Nc5 Nano’s battery is not removable, which is usual for these tiny quads.

The Nc5 Nano’s transmitter

is tiny, and is best fit for small hands, which is usual with such small quadcopters. For a nano quadcopter with a right-sized transmitter, check out the Syma X12

The Nc5 Nano uses the 2.4 Ghz technology, which is interference free. The transmitter is mode 2, and is fixed.

The Nc5 Nano and the transmitter auto bind, all you have to do is power on the quadcopter first, then the transmitter.

The range is 30 to 50 meters, depending on the environment – more than enough for such a quadcopter.

Overall

the Quadpro Nc5 Nano is nice little quadcopter,however there are almost no parts available for it. For a better supported nano quad, you may want to check out the CheersonCX-10. Then again nano quadcopters are toys, and it’s hard to go wrong with anyone of them.
Fun:★★★★★
Value:★★★☆☆
