Want to get into aerial videography but have a very limited budget? We may just have the solution! The Pathfinder 2 hexcopter is packed with features you would normally expect to find in a big brand, turn key solution including a 6-axis gyro, 1 key return to home function, heading lock flight mode, altitude hold and a HD camera with real time 5.8Ghz video transmitter and FPV receiver!
The Pathfinder 2 FPV system also has DVR capability which enables you to record your footage in flight and play it back on the supplied 7 inch monitor! The frame of the hexcopter is manufactured from aluminum alloy and is shrouded with a molded plastic canopy making the frame extremely tough. The motors are also shrouded to protect them from the everyday bumps and scrapes.
The Pathfinder 2 is supplied complete with a 2.4Ghz transmitter for interference free flying, while the FPV system operates on 5.8Ghz to provide you with super sharp real time video. The built-in 6-axis gyro makes this hexcopter super stable and easy to fly making it perfect for the novice through to the expert pilot.
Like many of the smaller turn key solutions the Pathfinder 2 has the 3D flip function, however watching a hexcopter of this size flip will still impress the locals! If your looking for a budget but comprehensive package to get your FPV career underway, than the W609-8 should definitely be at the top of your shopping list!

Hobby King just lost a customer.I was so happy to get this as a 1st time fpv, but after 5 flight this is now trash. 1 motor is no longer working , and now it will not fly. So quality is poor. Overall rating poor for this fpv. No parts so it goes to the trash and my hard earn money gone.W609-8 Pathfinder 2 Hexcopter with 5.8Ghz FPV System / Mode 2 / US Plug (RTF)Well this drone has not worked since new! Took it to the local hobby shop and had the drone expert take a look at it and he said it has a bad control board. 2 of the motors fail to run up at start up. Can't even get it 1 inch off the ground. Currently working with customer support to figure out what they plan to do. The camera system seems to work on the ground so can't say much about distance of kind of video.
