40 meters of range signal is also a nice feature.  This one is suitable for ages 14+ but even the adults can have fun using this one.

Pros and Cons

As with any product on the market, there are both pros and cons, this is something that cannot be overlooked. One feature of the Cheerson CX-10 mini is its tiny size and this is both a pro and a con. The size makes it both stylish and adaptable, able to fit in the palm of the hand, making it easy to be taken anywhere. However, because of its tiny size, the battery tends to overheat with extended use, which can eventually result in damage to the motors. The Package includes 4 extra rotor blades which come in handy as crashes are frequent with this product. That said, it does have excellent durability and can withstand most minor crashes. Steering this tiny quad can be a tricky because it can be difficult to distinguish between the back and front of the quad. However, the built in LED lights can help with this. The lights themselves have a con, they blink when the product has low battery which can be distracting to the flyer. This quad is extremely fast which is great for outdoor use. Alternatively, indoors can be a little more challenging because of this attribute. The speed of the quad also makes the hover function harder to use and requires some practice to get used to it. It’s really quite sensitive and can crash if tilted too far.


The Cheerson CX-10 mini can be a ton of fun for anyone. Great for teens and kids alike the nano-sized quad is affordable, comfortable and offers a good value investment. Durable, lightweight, and stylish. Its 3 level speed function and easy to use controls makes it a good choice for flyers of all abilities. It would be a great starting toy to learn functions and patience with, as well as and a super fun little quad for experienced flyers to add to their collection. I personally recommend this product to flyers of all skill levels. Go out & have some fun with the whole family with the CHeerson CX-10 mini!
