The FreeX has been around for some time. However recently the price of it has dropped drastically (from $400 to $200) and therefore I felt the need to post this article. Watch the review below. Buy it here.


Pro’s
– Low price GPS quadcopter that comes with an included stabilized gimbal. Priced similar to the CX-20, 3D X8, and X380.
– Includes GPS position hold, altitude hold, headless mode, return to home/landing, and gimbal tilt control.
– Does not drop from the sky.Slowly descends to a landing when battery power gets low.
– Very fast quadcopter in altitude hold mode. Also extremely fast return to home.

Con’s
– Gimbal camera mount is sized for GoPros. Other cameras can fit, but may require some slight modifications of the mount to hold them securely.
– It seems to have an electronic fence set at about 200 meters. You see the reviewer bump it in the video at 11:59, from which he couldn’t proceed any further outward. Believe this can be modified to allow further distance, but am unsure how to do such at the moment.
– Requires FAA registration.

  • I just got my free x drone on last Tuesday. The gimbal would not stop twitching. I pushed the rest button to stop it. So i checked the controller to test the gimbal. Nothing happen after few minutes and twitching came back. It did these twice. The third time instead of trying to get controls working. Instead of twitching coming back the flight controller went up in smoke. I can not get a hold of the manufactures.
