  • The Helix X4's foam covering and light weight prevent damage to itself--or anything it may crash into.
  • This tiny unit can perform aerobatic maneuvers, making it fun to play with.

CONS

  • Because it's so small and lightweight, the Helix X4 isn't a good choice for outdoor use.
  • The Helix X4 has no camera or support for an add-on camera.
  • Some reviewers felt the X4 was more toy than true drone.
