Relevant as a good beginner drone even in 2019, this tiny camera drone from cheerson is quite unique still.

It's obviously surprising that you can find it stacked directly in the controller itself.

Cheerson CX-10 WD is a drone suited for beginners that want a mini drone and somehow also have the guts to ask for a tiny camera.

And surprisingly enough, this drone delivers, for quite a low price.

What to look for in a toy camera drone

Flight time can be especially important when it comes to kids toys, as it's going to be annoying for the little one to only have a short taste of how it's like, insead of properly playing for at least a few minutes.

Unfortunately, the smaller the drone, the shorter the flight time, so it's no suprise you can barely get 5 minute of flight time with the Cheerson.

Charging time is important mainly when there isn't the option to buy spare batteries.

The total charging time is under 30 minute, fortunately.

Drone safety is one of the things every parent should take a look at, for obvious reasons. Usually Prop guards and smaller drones are recommended for kids.

This drone has no protection, however it's so small it's basically harmless.

Ease of use is quite important when it comes to letting a kid fly a drone. So make sure the controls are simple to understand.

The controller is the main point I like this drone for. It has a very nice feel in the hands and doubles as a carrying case.

Cheerson CX-10WD Price and specs

The price point of this drone is still pretty low considering simply adding a camera to any drone usually doubles the price.

You can get it on amazon or chinese websites like BangGood and it will arrive safely at your doorstep.

It does come in the package with spare propellers, the charger and manual. Basically everything you need. Unfortunately, you can't change the battery, so there's no spare ones.

FPV and App

For a toy level drone, don't expect much from this quadcopter, but thaks to the optical stabilization, I must admit the video turns out pretty smooth.

The camera isn't trully 720p, but rather 480p, however the frame rate is quite good and the image is not half bad for that size.

The original body is very small and is very similar to the Cheerson CX10 but with a bigger belly underneath that can support the guts of the camera and the bigger battery.

The controller is the main eye-catcher for this drone and not only that. Compared to the original transmitter for the Cheerson CX10, this one is considerably bigger and much easier to hold in hands.

Not only that, it also has a phone holder for FPV flight and the arms slide laterally for a better grip.

I really love how this transmitter feels in hand and it's even better because it also holds the drone inside.

Kinda wish it would charge the drone or something, hah.

You can also do flips with this quad, which can look pretty amazing for people who don't know what you just did.

An outstanding indoors drone with an original package

The transmitter is quite eye-catching for this drone. Besides that, the simple fact that it comes with a camera at such a small size it's quite impressive.

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:

how-to-make-money-with-drones

1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

types of drones

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  1.  
  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.

 

How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of DronesGator.com and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.
