KingKong Tiny7 Mini FPV Quadcopter Review

Before receiving the original product, I decided to write a review of the KingKong Tiny 7. From the picture above, you can see that it is a great replica of the Inductrix FPV model. The design with the screw channel is not only cool, but also well-connected, making accidents almost unavoidable, thanks to the excellent protection provided by the King Kong Tiny 7 blades. Serious damage is unlikely due to this protection.

King Kong Tiny 7 currently comes in two versions: Basic and Advance. The main difference between them is in the package content. The Advance version includes 4 sets of props, 4 cases (white, yellow, pink, red), 5 batteries and 5 charging stations, which can be controlled using the following radios: DSM2, FASST, FlySky or FrSky.

I gladly accepted the offer from GeekBuying to purchase the KingKong Tiny 7, as I was interested in testing it with the BetaFlight software, as it seemed more suitable for this model compared to CleanFlight according to my research.Thanks to SF Express, my package arrived quickly and without any issues. There were no paper fibers or customs involved in the delivery.

I expected to receive the “Extended” version of the product, but when I opened the package, I found that it was the “Basic” version. It included an airplane, flashlight, battery, charger, and FlySky radio attached to the flight controller that was already turned on.

The features and specifications of the product are:

– Channel screws and protective lamps

– Three-bladed propeller

– Multiple color options: white, pink, yellow, red

– Universal F3 flight controller with a 16-channel video transmitter that has a range of 25 meters

– BetaFlight firmware

– Various flight modes: angle, horizon, acro

– Different radio options: AC800/FS PPM, FS/FlySky DSM2, FM800/Futaba

– 800TVL camera

– 500 mAh flight battery with 30 C capacity

– Up to 5 minutes of play time

Compared to the Eachine QX70, the Tiny 7 has better build quality. The FlySKY receiver is attached to the top of the aircraft, as mentioned earlier.The propellers have three blades, all yellow, and there is no buzzers or LED panels. They come with coupling pieces to make engine replacement easier. Video recording at 25Mbps, 16 channels, and 5.8Gbps is integrated into the micro flight controller, so soldering is not required.

All electronic components are well protected by nylon covers. You can fine-tune flight controller parameters using the micro USB port. The betaflight configurator allows you to not only change PID values, but also assign TX AUX channels.

In my opinion, the Whoop’s nylon frame looks very solid and reinforced. Although it’s not made from carbon fiber, I believe it can withstand minor impacts without any problems. The 500mAh battery can be charged using a bulky USB charger (without the casing, just the board). The charger has two pins and a micro switch to adjust current (200mAh or 500mAh). Please note: the Tiny7 can only be powered by a 1s LiPo.

The camera/Fpv system.The TiNY7 is a small drone that measures 12 x 12 x 13 mm and weighs only a few grams. It connects to a PC via power and video cables. A 31 mm long unshielded copper wire serves as a 5 GHz antenna. You can use a micro-switch to change channels. The camera offers good image quality, perfect for flying in parks. However, there is no on-screen menu.

Linking the KingKong TiNY7 with the FS-i6 Receiver

Although the instructions do not mention using the KingKong with a gear system, it is easy to set up and only takes a few minutes. First, connect the FS-i6 to the drone by holding down the “Bind” button. Once the binding process is complete, turn on the ATV using the RX binding settings.

Next, assign auxiliary channels to control engine on/off and flight mode activation. For example, use the FS-i6 remote control to turn on/off the engine and switch flight modes using SWA and SWC.Each brand of radio has different binding steps, so it’s important to check the instructions for your specific model before starting.

During my test flight, I noticed that the sound of the drone was much louder compared to a Cheerson CX-17, but it had a softer and more pleasant tone. It was also faster than a gaming drone by default.

The default tilt angle was approximately 45 degrees, but using the BetaFlight Configurator, I could add Acro mode for more experienced pilots. The average flight time was around 4 minutes, which isn’t bad, but I’ll need to buy a few more batteries soon.Overall, the drone looks brand new and functions well. I plan to conduct FPV testing using my Walkera Goggles next week and will report on my experience. The price-to-quality ratio of the camera and first-person view is excellent. The flight time is 3.9 minutes, which is great for those who want something more versatile than other drones. For $21 extra, the extended package includes five batteries to extend training time, which I liked. The reinforced frame feels very sturdy, and both the image quality and transmission range are satisfactory. If you don’t want to spend $200 on a real drone, you can purchase the KingKong Tiny 7 here. There is also the KINGKONG Tiny 6 with similar features, but it is smaller. I liked its nice design with a protective cover, reinforced frame, 720 motor, easy-to-replace battery, and BetaFlight firmware.Simple binding with TX

What I didn’t like: Spare engines are not available and there is no on-screen menu for the photo gallery.
