Key Differences between CX 10 and CX 10 A. 

Despite its small size , both quads are fast, capable of acrobatic tricks and indoor/outdoor flight!

The similarities :

a) Both are capable of doing front flips, back flips and left and right flips.

b)Each houses a 3.7v 100 mAh rechargeable lithium ion battery, which provides significant speed and elevation. A USB charger is also provided for 5 to 8 mins of flying delight.

The differences:

a) CX 10A comes with headless mode.Headless mode means that pushing any direction on the control stick, will always move the craft in that direction, regardless of the way that the craft is facing!

b) CX10A has a relatively shorter charging time than CX 10.

c) Some customers commented that the speed for CX 10 A is slightly compromised as CX 10A has 2 speeds while CX 10 has 3 speed modes.

Our verdict : If you are going for the speed , CX 10 is the one for you. If you are a beginner , due to the headless mode , CX 10A is your perfect fit.

Hi there!

Is this still available at Dacube@ Serangoon Nex Mall ?

Many thanks!

Only CX10a comes with headless mode. Dun think it is possible for CX10c

65 Drones

hi. Nice post!
Is there a way to make the cx10C have headless mode? I think it already has a built in compass so it should be able to make use of it.

Thanks
