A few days ago that ThiEYE presented a new first generation drone but this has nothing to do with the usual drone. The new ThiEYE Dr.X drone is a smaller device but, above all, very easy to use.
The Dr.X was born for all those looking for a good drone to take pictures on the beach, photos from the air, etc.
The company ThiEYE Dr.X, as you may know, specializes in action cameras, but now decided to expand its market and showed a new drone with a good quality of shooting Full HD.
It has good quality (especially with close-up photos) and its handling is very easy. We have done with one and we have reviewed it thoroughly so that you can know everything good and bad about it. First, let’s see the main specs of ThiEYE Dr.X.

ThiEYE Dr.X: Unboxing
The device ThiEYE Dr.X came to us in a good and interesting box, on the front side there is a drone and a name, and on the back, it is the main specs of Dr.X.
Let’s open the box and see what’s inside, it’s the drone itself, 4 propellers and 2 additional ones, it’s fall-protected for propellers, a 650 mAh battery, a USB cable and an instruction.
In general, this is a well-equipped device and if you need additional propellers or a battery, you can order it additionally.
ThiEYE Dr.X: Desing and Appearance
The drone stands out for having a really tough and compact design and for being very easy to control. Anyone can fly it from minute 1 without hitting anything. Below you can see the in-depth review of the ThiEYE Dr.X drone.
The design of the drone ThiEYE Dr.X in the analisis is only 110 by 110 and 43 mm, and the weight of the device is 85 grams.
Do not be fooled by its size. It is very compact but at the same time very robust. The Asian firm has used high-quality materials to prevent it from breaking in the falls.
We have crashed it several times against the wall to see if it really was resistant and not a single problem.
Neither the structure nor the propellers were affected by the blows. It has some replacement propellers inside but we do not think you need them.
ThiEYE Dr.X: Use and Control
Another of the strengths of this small ship is how easy it is to fly it. Handling the drone from the application is extremely easy.
It’s like playing a video game. It even allows us to adjust the sensitivity level in the application.
In case you want to play a little and enjoy its power you should know that it has 4 buttons to do pirouettes. It can flip forward, backward, etc. Moreover, it is a drone so smart that before executing the maneuver it tells you if it is possible to perform safely or not.
Let’s talk about the sensors that are on the drone. The first is barometric, optical flow and 6-axis gyro stabilization sensors.
The drone has an autonomy of 8 minutes. It is a good duration for this type of drones that usually have around 5 or 7 minutes of autonomy.
Anyway, we can fly more time if we buy some extra battery. It only costs $10. Or, if you prefer, you can buy a pack of two extra batteries with the built-in charger for only $20. Undoubtedly, a better option to have 30 minutes of flight in total.
The drone remains stable without doing anything and responds perfectly to our orders. The secret lies in the height control and headless mode, which allows us to fly without knowing where the aircraft is looking.
Taking it off is so easy that you can do it automatically from the floor or the hand with a button in the application. The same to land. Thanks to the protections it will not hurt us in any way.
If you liked it, or if you already have one. We have seen that some things can be improved. Then we leave some accessories and spare parts for the Mitu drone that you might need.
Expand the flight range – If our mobile phone does not have a good Wi-Fi signal we can extend the range up to 3 times with a small WiFi extender. We have not had any problems with the signal.
ThiEYE Dr.X: Application
The application of ThiEYE Dr.X is in English but the truth is that it is very intuitive. We leave you some captures of it. We have not had any problem to use it.

It allows us to select several modes, including FPV mode or in normal mode to take photos and videos.
You can choose the quality of the video (FHD) and even the resolution of the photo.
Videos and photos of ThiEYE Dr.X in the test are saved in their microSD memory up to 32 GB and from the application itself can be transferred to the phone.
We can also connect the drone with the USB directly to the PC.
It has connected us without problems, in case you do not recognize the WiFi here you have a tutorial to solve it.
ThiEYE Dr.X: Shooting Quality
The quality of the photos is good for this price range. The normal thing is to see photos and videos that are barely seen but the ThiEYE Dr.X drone records with FHD quality.
We leave you with 4 photos of a landscape so you can see the results. As for FHD videos, they are very good. For the price you have, it is impossible to ask for something better.
In comparison with other drones such as Xiaomi Mitu drone, here we have the opportunity to shoot a video with 1080p and this is great.
If you have any doubt about it, use the comments. From our point of view, the ThiEYE Dr.X is worth it for anyone who wants to take photos and videos.
Perfect now that fall is coming and we have more time. Besides that flying, a drone is very fun and this is very easy to use.
