Cheerson CX 33S FPV Review
In this Cheerson CX 33S FPV review, I’m going to share a few interesting things about this brand new creation from Cheerson. Cheerson is one consumer drone company I admire for their growing product line-up of affordable drones that are of a reasonable quality.
CX-33 is a brand new creation from Cheerson that comes in four different versions such as the Cheerson CX-33S which is a FPV version where the video transmitted directly to the monitor present on the transmitter of the tricopter; the CX-33W which is another FPV version where the video is transmitted over Wi-Fi, and finally, the CX-33C, which is a 720p camera version with no FPV and is the cheapest of all four CX-33 versions released by Cheerson.
Here, our singular focus is on the Cheerson CX-33S FPV. The Cheerson CX-33 drones are unique because of their Y-shaped main structures. They come with three arms, unlike a typical quadcopter that comes with four arms. Each of the three arms has two motors.
Cheerson CX-33 uses an altitude hold mode where it uses a barometric sensor to check the air pressure, which ensures that the tricopter hovers at a consistent height. The barometric sensor is able to sense air pressure with excellent accuracy. The tricopter is able to give an accurate measure of how high it is in the sky based on the air pressure at different altitudes, which allows you to adjust the height as you see fit.
CX-33S is the FPV version of Cheerson CX-33 and it is available in the market for just under $103. It has an inbuilt 5.8 GHz transmitter that offers high quality video streaming and does not rely on Wi-Fi for the same. It consists of a monitor that is built right onto the transmitter. That’s why it is slightly more expensive than CX-33W, which is based on Wi-Fi.
The recorded video quality on the CX-33S depends on the signal quality as the recording is done on the video receiver, so anything that is sent to the receiver gets recorded. This means interference from other devices can be an issue.
The CX-33S comes with a 2 mega pixel independent video transmission system that takes pictures and records and makes transmissions at real-time. The Cheerson CX-33S uses dual-spring control sticks. This allows multiple users to fly it at the same time and its transmission function consists of 8 frequency points. It generally flies at a height of 30 to 80 meters, and the FPV transmission distance is around 30 to 80 meters as well.
The CX-33S is quite powerful because of its 6 motors – 2 motors on each arm and comes with a 7.4v lithium ion battery. It uses the latest LED technology for lighting and has one key for landing and another for takeoff. I found it to be very stable in air because of the barometric sensor which allows you to adjust its altitude and to ensure that it flies consistently at the same height. There’s no question about its quality and I recommend it highly.
I wish you all the best, and remember that if you have any questions or comments you can post them in the comments section at the bottom of any blog post. It’s great to hear from you.
