UDI U818A-1 Quadcopter Design

The UDI U818A-1 is similar to many other quadcopters in design, with a metal cross frame and practically entirely made from plastic parts. It is a mid-size quadcopter, measuring about 13″ by 13″ and about 2.5″ tall. If you’re familiar with the Syma X1 quadcopter, it is nearly identical in size – and has very similar propellers too! Great sized quadcopter for beginners to learn on. The price and ease of use makes this quadcopter a great entry quad for those thinking about getting into a high end quad like a DJI Phantom or 3DR IRIS+.
