The Review


Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:


The X Pack 2 drone comes in an attractive and sturdy cardboard box. When you open the box you’re greeted with the accessory box and then under that is the drone and remote control.

Inside of the accessory box you’ll find the user manual, two AAA batteries, two spare rotors, screwdriver and a USB charging cable.

xpackdrone4

The remote is black and orange in color to match the drone, it’s made of plastic of course but it feels sturdy and well made. The remote is about 5.5 x 3.5 x 2 inches in dimensions (14x9x5cm), those are taken from the widest points.

The remote has control sticks on each side, left is for up and down and rotate left and right, while the right stick is for forward and backward and fly left and right. Below the sticks are two buttons each to trim the drone as needed.

The X Pack 2 drone itself fits snugly in the compartment in the middle of the remote under a clear window. The cover closes well and makes everything very portable for sure.

The top of the remote has two orange buttons, but it’s actually just one button, the right button is fake but the left button is used for take off and landing and emergency stop.

The bottom of the remote is where the batteries go, two compartments with doors secured by screws that hold one AAA battery each for power.

xpackdrone6

The drone is black and orange in color and it kind of reminds me of a bug really. The drone is tiny at about 2.5 x 2 x 1 inches (6×4.5x2cm)when folded. The drone itself is compact obviously so it’s solid and it feels well made.

To use the drone you’ll need to open the arms, they do offer a bit of resistance but not much and they lock into place when fully opened.

xpackdrone12 xpackdrone13

The front of the drone has a black circle which looks like a camera but it isn’t. The back is where you’ll find the charging port and power button, yes it’s a very tiny button that you press to turn it on and off.

There’s not much on the bottom to see really, just the hinges for the rotor arms.

xpackdrone16

There are two green LEDs on the front and two blue LEDs on the back of the drone.  They blink when pairing and stay when paired and in use but will start to blink again when the battery gets low.

So I love this little drone honestly, it’s a ton of fun to play with and fly around the house and it’s fast too, but it’s easy to fly. One of the things I really like is the fact that it will auto hover if you let go of the controls while flying. The drone also can take off and land with the push of a button and it can do 360 degree flips. The drone also has a headless mode if you prefer that way of flying.

So here’s a brief video of me flying the X Pack 2 and even doing some flips:

Conclusion


The Attop X Pack 2 mini drone is just amazing really, it’s easy to fly and a whole lot of fun.

Flying time is about 8 minutes but that’s normal for such a small drone, it takes about 30 minutes to charge the battery over a regular USB connection.

I love the fact that the drone auto hovers when you let go of the sticks, it makes much easier to fly without crashing, if you get in trouble just let go of the sticks and it will stop but still fly and you can continue where you left off.

The drone can do flips and it has one button take off and landing.

This is sold as a kids toy but I love it, it’s not just for kids for sure.

I’m very happy with the Attop X Pack 2 drone, I’ve ben using it everyday and having a  lot of fun with it.

Pros:
+Easy to fly
+Well made
+Great for beginners

Cons:
-None really
