Many Chinese companies have been accused of being copycats of big and recognizable companies, creating clone products that resemble well-established devices. Apple and Samsung have been the most copied companies as their iPhone and Galaxy S Series are extremely popular.
So, this time, we have a Chinese company, ripping off another Chinese company, as China-based drone maker WLtoys, just made a DJI Inspire 1 clone, the WLtoys Q333 which is essentially a knock-off of the Inspire 1 but a hell lot more affordable!
How much more affordable? Well, the DJI Inspire 1 costs about $3,000 and the WLtoys Q333 sells for just $94! Of course, the difference in price comes along with a difference in specs, so, for less than $95 you get a full 5.8GHz FPV platform including the drone, a (0/3 mega-pixel/VGA) camera on it, a monitor attached to the controller and everything else required to make it work as well as a 4GB microSD card so you can start shooting right away. Just for a comparison, the DJI Inspire 1 comes with a 13MP camera capable of 4K video recording and with 4,500mAh battery with an option to upgrade to a higher capacity.
We think that it is ideal for a starting kit for anyone who wants to start a drone hobby. What do you think?
