Potensic A20 – mini drone for kids and beginners
The Potensic A20 is a robust mini drone for beginners and children from 8 years. The compact quadcopter can be controlled easily and precisely and can be flown both indoors and outdoors. A special highlight: The Potensic A20 comes with 2 batteries for twice the flight time.
Two batteries at once for a long flight time
We generally recommend ordering a second battery when buying a drone to increase the flight time. This is not necessary with the Potensic A20, because it is delivered from the factory with two batteries.
Per battery, the small drone achieves a flight time of about 10 to 12 minutes, which is a considerable amount of time for the small size of the drone and also the battery. The batteries are charged in about 20 to 30 minutes with the help of a USB charger.
The Potensic A20: Light, compact and safe
With a take-off weight of just 24 grams, the Potensic A20 is a real lightweight. And the dimensions of 7.9 x 3.2 x 8.9 centimeters also clearly show that the Potensic A20 is a mini drone.
The low weight and compact dimensions make the Potensic A20 an excellent drone for kids. The small quadcopter’s propeller guards ensure that it survives contact with walls or furniture unscathed. Moreover, the plastic cage around the rotors also protects bystanders in case of collisions with the drone.
Another safety feature of the Potensic A20 is the emergency stop button, which lets the drone land instantly when pressed.
Easy operation thanks to altitude hold mode
The control of the Potensic A20 is very simple and can be learned quickly even without prior knowledge. Extremely practical for easy operation is the Altitude hold mode. As soon as you release the throttle, the drone remains in place and independently maintains the current flight altitude.
Depending on your skill level, you can choose between three different speed settings. Especially in the slow mode, the Potensic A20 can be controlled very precisely, but the small drone also shows very good flight characteristics in the other two modes. By the way, a simple push of a button on the remote control is enough to take off and land.
Since the Potensic A20 does not have GPS, it can also be flown indoors without any problems. For outdoor use, it should be as windless as possible, as the small quadcopter is very susceptible to wind.
For even easier control, you can switch to Headless mode. In this mode, it doesn’t matter if the front or the rear of the drone is facing you when you execute control commands. The otherwise necessary rethinking of the drone’s orientation is eliminated in this mode and lets you operate the drone even more easily.
Nevertheless, we recommend that you do not fly exclusively in Headless mode, but rather get to grips with the classic controls after a short familiarization period – after all, not all drones have Headless mode.
