Hobbico Heli-Max 230Si Quadcopter Drone Review

Hobbico Heli-Max 230Si Quadcopter Drone Review

Introduction
Hobbico has been around for decades now and actually for so long that I remember flying their models when I was a kid. It’s a trusted brand that has produced countless numbers of quality hobby aircraft and models over the years and their Heli-Max 230Si Quadcopter that we are looking at today is no exception to this same quality that they’ve been known for.

So what exactly is the Heli-Max 230Si and who is it geared towards? It’s a quadcopter for those looking to upgrade from their micro or palm sized quadcopter or for the completely new pilot that’s never gotten into flying before. It’s a great in-between in size but does not skimp on features as you’ll find a lot of the same features on the 230Si as you’ll find on the larger 350 size quadcopters.

The Heli-Max 230Si is priced at $179 with the HD camera and features actual direction control, return to pilot, altitude control management, fail-safe, HD video and photography, LED lighting system, and has a decent stabilization system.
