Find out what other pilots had to say after flying the Estes 4606 Proto X Nano R/C Quadcopter.
Is the Estes 4606 Proto X Nano R/C Quadcopter Worth Buying?
The small size of the Estes 4606 Proto X Nano R/C Quadcopter makes it pretty unique, it is less than 2 inches by 2 inches and weighs just a few ounces. There are two colors available, black and white, but the color chosen is sent at random. The two LED headlights give an authentic look to this tiny helicopter and its remote control lets users skillfully maneuver, once they have learned how to fly.
The remote control requires two AAA batteries, but the copter itself has a small rechargeable battery that is charged through the included USB (or any USB) cord. It takes about 15 minutes to fully charge the quadcopter, so it is pretty much ready to use coming right out of the box.
The small size of the Estes 4606 Proto X Nano R/C Quadcopter does make it unique, but it also makes it very fragile. Buyers complained that the parts break easily or simply just stop working after just a few flights. Replacement parts are available and some fixes can be done at home, but having to repair the copter every 10 or 20 flights can get old fast.
And note that the rechargeable battery is ready to fly in just 15 minutes, but the battery only gives out about 3 to 5 minutes of flying time. This means that, if the quadcopter breaks every 20 flights, it is only good for about an hour of enjoyment.
While the look of the Estes 4606 Proto X Nano R/C Quadcopter is pretty cool, the fact that it only lasts about an hour before breaking down is not. For many it has still been worth the price tag, but just bear in mind that you could be one of the unlucky ones.
