Who Is Potensic?
Potensic is an integrated enterprise that is incredibly ambitious in their goal to be “persistent in the pursuing of the perfect creation.”
Focusing on research, development, and sale, they seemed determined to create high-end electronics.
Some of their products include not only drones, but also screen protectors and endoscopes.
That is not to say that Potensic is focused only on their creations. That might be their primary aim, but they still seem to make an honest effort to keep their customers’ interests in mind.
From their heavy interest in social media – they have multiple pages, including Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and many, many others – to their personalized answer to questions on Amazon, they really seem to take their clients’ concerns seriously.
That being said, some people have claimed that the customer support in their website is a little lacking.
But what does all of these things mean for the Potensic F183DH? When you have a company boasting about their goals to design the “perfect creation”, you got to wonder about the quality of their products.
Does all of this ambition reflect well on their drones, or are they just full of hot air?
Let’s see how close the Potensic F183DH is to being the “perfect creation.”
Potensic F183DH Description
With a 3.3 out 5 stars average of 87 reviews (as of the time this was written), Potensic F183DH’s features are what you’d expect for an entry level drone with a reasonable price.
It has some appealing features that would interest many drone users. These include:
- Hover/Altitude hold function
- FPV with a 2 megapixel camera
- 5.8GHz wireless monitor screen
- One key takeoff and landing feature
- Return home feature
- One button 360 flip function
The Potensic F183DH is a bit fragile, so for that reason, Potensic recommends this drone for children 14 years or older.
However, they have also said that if you allow children younger than 12 to fly this drone, than it is better do so with supervision.
You know your children best, so you’ll know better than anyone if they can fly the Potensic F183DH responsibly or not.
The Potensic F183DH has range of up to 90 meters, though it is recommended to stay within 20 meters so you can properly see and better control your drone.
Some people have complained about the drone and the remote failing to communicate properly, so this might have been the reason.
Potensic F183DH Battery
Batteries should always be something you look carefully at when buying any drone. The quality of it will heavily influence how well you’ll be able to enjoy your drone, after all. The Potensic F183DH is no exception.
It’s battery gives it an average fly time for the Potensic F183DH, when it is fully charged, is about 5 to 8 minutes.
That time, however, can increase to 10 to 13 minutes if you fly without the camera. That means that you’ll probably run through them very quickly when flying.
Batteries are easy and simple to change, so you don’t have to worry about it being much of a hassle.
This should probably be a real relief for those who are not very handy.
Still, because the batteries can go out quickly, I’d advice in favor of buying a few extra ones in advance, just so you’ll be able to enjoy flying your Potensic F183DH for longer.
