DON’T Buy Black Falcon 4k Drone: False Advertising & Claims!

Is The Black Falcon 4k Drone worth the price it is sold for? Is it indeed a quality drone for beginners and expert? Here’s a consumer report. I bought and tested the Black Falcon 4k Pro Drone. In this review I share my experience flying the drone; its pros, cons, and everything you should expect when you buy this drone.

What Is Black Falcon 4k Drone?

Black Falcon 4k Drone is a drone that is beeing advertised on YouTube, Facebook, Google, etc. as the ideal drone for both beginners and experts. It is allegedly take pictures of up to 12 megapixels, has an efficient gravity sensor, and comes with an exceptional slo-mo mode.

Black Falcon 4k Drone Review: Unboxing and Testing This Drone

It arrived in a box clearly marked made in CHINA not AMERICA. The drone looks well built and it gets airborne, however it has lots of flaws. First of all, the camera is crap. The crystal clear footage that they advertise is not achievable. The camera quality is nothing like the benchmark Mavik Mini drone which costs 4 times as much.
Secondly, Black Falcon 4k Drone is quite difficult to fly even as an expert that I am. Even when connected to the app, the drone seems to get a mind of its own and just looks for something to crash in to. Trimming kind of works but takes too long in which time the controls freeze and the drone crashes (again).

The 3 speed setting does not work, it is just one speed level. The obstacle avoidance setting simply does not work. It crashes into the first thing it comes across. Even the remote control doesn’t link to my phone so I have to use my phone.

Meanwhile, I ordered a spare battery estimating a total of around an hour of flight due to the advertisement but in reality I got around 10 minutes on a fully charged battery so that gave me 20 minutes even with the spare.

Is The Black Falcon 4K Drone a Scam?

Yes, the Black Falcon 4k Drone is a scam, it does not really work as advertised. It is a cheap drone modelled after Eachine E58. It lacks a gimball, the camera quality is so terrible, the battery life is poor, and it’s not worth $99.

The commercials you see online is totally false. Black Falcon 4k Drone was not designed by ex SEALs or manufactured in NZ. Also, the story that it was developed by a South African who was the former head of R&D for a large drone brand is untrue. As you can see, the back story is inconsistent. There are different Ads targeting different regions and countries.

Meanwhile, the footage used in the advertisement is not from the drone itself. The footage is from a dji mavic air which is actually one of the best drones out there. Simply put; the advertisers are using the footage of a quality drone to sell an inferior drone. We’ve seen this happen many times with fad products. It is called ‘bait and switch scam’.

In reality, the drone was formerly branded as ‘AeroQuad; before then it was ‘SkyQuad‘. It’s just a drone for kids that is actually worth $30 on Amazon or Aliexpress. What the company behind this product does is bulk buy this crappy drone from China, invest in aggressive marketing, then change the name of the drone once there are lots of complaints online.
