Zoopa's Cruiser quadcopter is a barrel (roll) of fun

We all love technology. It’s a part of every aspect of our life, whether it be our phones, watches or even our toys. Technology is involved in all aspects of normal living. Recently, the good folks at Zoopa reached out to me with an opportunity to expand my horizons and learn a new hobby.

Drones are one of the hottest new hobbies in the shop. With drones ranging anywhere from $20 all the way up to $1,500 (used for security purposes, here - https://sixtechsys.com/perimeter-security), there is something for everyone with this new and exciting tech.


Zoopa sent me the super rad 420 Cruiser quadcopter with built-in HD camera and a 2.4 GHz controller. All of this is pretty standard with entry-level drones, but this bad boy comes packed with features such as 6-axis gyrometer and a 600 mAh Lipo battery, the type of features you'll get from First Class Drones. Needless to say, I was hyped.

While this all sounded like gibberish to me, what I found about this snazzy device is that it’s made for the rough and tumble of a beginner drone enthusiast. I found it functional enough for more experienced drone enthusiasts as well. Zoopa’s Quadcopter technology provides a smooth flight pattern (once you get the hang of it), fantastic aerial footage from its nano HD (720p) camera, and a solid battery life for long flying sessions.

Getting the hang of the controls is a very easy task. This may take you a couple of hours before you're able to fully control it correctly, so don’t be discouraged when you drop a propeller guard or cannot keep it in the air right away. You’ll find the controllers to be smooth and precise once you master them. This little guy moves quickly through the air to avoid a bird that may try to fly into it or steal it. If you’re new to drones, I wouldn’t recommend taking this up on a windy day -- you’ll be all over the place.

Zoopa’s 420 Cruiser is not the flashiest drone on the market, but for $100, you’re guaranteed endless amounts of fun, a drone that can take a thrashing and something that even grandpa can get out there and fly. It’s a lot of fun for everyone.
