UDI U818A drone review in 2019
Considering the UDI U818A has been released a few years ago, yet it’s still recommended by people, does it make it good to buy in 2019 or is it a lost trend?
Let’s find out together!
If you’re on a hurry, you should know that there’s no risk involved in getting this drone, as it’s so cheap and does all the basic things a beginner drone should do pretty well.
Why trust me?
- A lot of drone review experience
I have tried and tested over 100 drones and also reviewed them in detailed both on the website and on youtube
- How I make money and why you should care
Affiliate marketing, meaning you pay the same price, but I get a small commission. Affiliates usually force feed you lies to make you buy FAST.
- Why I won't recommend a shitty product
I tell you at the end of the article if there's a better alternative. This helps me stay honest and still have earning potential from a product I actually think is better.
I have a cat
UDI u818A comes at a very low price, lower than the release date, and that makes it actually competitive in the current marketplace.
Right now foldable drones with optical flow cameras are the trend, but they usually tend to go more towards $100 because of the aditional technology.
If you want a practical toy drone that can forgive you for your mistakes as a beginner and crashing into stuff, this is definitely a solid choice.
Battery life isn’t the greatest, but in most packages you can find on amazon there’s usually two batteries included.
Here’s a daily price history, so you know if now is the right time to buy it.

Udi Drone video review

Reasons you should buy it
Reasons you shouldn't
The standard camera of the UDI was 0.3 mp, but now it has been upgraded to a 720p resolution, and it looks like you can see in these pictures.
It can take photos and videos, but don’t expect some amazing footage or very stable one.
The drone does also come with headless mode and a few speed modes to set up depending on how fast you want to fly and if you’re a beginner or not.
If you want a better camera drone and want to focus on that, spend a few more dollars and get a DJI Tello instead.
The transmitter has clearly labeled icons next to the 4 buttons in front. As you can see, there’s also a screen for showing the trimming, battery, signal and power.
There is also a button for doing flips.
In my opinion, this controller is a bit too big, but it’s nice to hold in the hands, especially for adults.
I would have preffered something more compact instead.

Please use the “Add to compare” button and then press on the icon on the right to compare them.
This is one of those time tested quadcopters that was the favorite of the public a few years ago, yet it's still relevant as most drones at this price range do basically the same thing, It's a good drone choice for beginners, especially since it's so cheap and you basically get the camera as a bonus.
- good propeller protection
- easy to fly in headless mode
- spare batteries
- not the fastest flyer
