However, the button of auto landing doesn’t work like you expect it to be, which is very strange. The notion behind the auto landing is that when you click on it, the VISUO XS809S quadcopter should land at same place where it took off. But, in reality, to guess where it will land is almost impossible. However, this is sure it will still sit somewhere.

Impressions

We really liked the VISUO XS809S quadcopter so much that we didn’t stop using it until one of the propellers get damaged. The features including 20 minutes of flying time is really great, and it’s hard to find a quadcopter in the same price bracket providing these features. It will take time to fully master the quadcopter until you get the hang of it. However, if you have spare batteries, the fun gets doubled. The device with its foldable design makes it really convenient to take it any place you want, and record a great 720p resolution video. Even though you will not get a cinematic picture, but in this price range, it is one of the best quadcopter for beginners and amateur video makers.
