The Propel Atom 1.0 Micro Drone is a very simple, beginner oriented quadcopter with a great looking design and spectacular flight stability.

It doesn’t come with a camera, or any fancy return to home stuff, and that’s no problem, since as you can see, the price on amazon is insanely low.

This quadcopter is perfect for beginners, but surprisingly enough, it can also face wind better than any similar sized drone I’ve played with before, like the Cheerson CX series, for example.

What to look for in A Beginner drone

Drone stability

Most drones these days have gyro calibration when flying, more expensive ones even come with GPS.

Atom drone: 6 axis gyro

Battery life

Battery life really depends on the drone size too. A very small drone can’t fly for long.

Atom drone: 5 minutes

Range

Range for small drones should be in maximum line of sight.

Propel Atom 1.0 Price and specs

The price is the most important factor in this equation, which means we can’t have many expectations with the drone considering what you’re paying for it.

It comes with a simple, well designed transmitter, a shiny body with good paint on it and a very durable overall frame.

Propel Atom 1.0 micro drone Video Review

Transmitter

Atom 1.0

The transmitter is a simple one, but comes with a better than standard one. It’s a modernized, slimmer version to that bulky fat one we’ve seen in both the older model of micro drone from propel: the Air Micro Drone and the Cheerson CX10, which also has a fat bulky controller.

Otherwise, the trimming buttons and the on and off button are still there.

You can also do flips with this one, which is pretty fun for kids.
