REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
The Swann Xtreem Gravity Pursuit drone was a blast to use and to play with!
We must be honest though, compared to the look and feel of other drones, it does lack the sense of appeal. We feel as though this has much to do with the color scheme and the plastic feel to both the drone itself and the controller. There are really no other drones to compare the Swann Xtreem Gravity Pursuit to fairly. Going down in price, you will find that those drones lack features strictly because cost savings were used and quality was reduced. Going the other way, you will find prices jump dramatically, and the quality does as well.
It also does take a bit to get the hang of learning to handle and fly this drone. We had and still have many ‘rough’ landings, and we definitely would not feel comfortable flying this drone about 90m or in tighter, more confined spaces. Flights are jittery and movements are sporadic. If you are lucky enough to find a day that has zero wind and make very small movements with the drone, you may have the feeling of courage and day the drone u higher than 100 feet.
This is a fun drone for wide open spaces and more agile movements closer to the ground, approximately 30 feet is perfect. Even take off can be rough depending on how much wind you have, as you can see below.
This brings us to our main point about the Swann Xtreem Gravity Pursuit drone, it is smack-dab in the middle of a market that is relatively non-existent. A mid-range price and performer that won’t leave you disappointed. Let’s face it, it is a fun remote control toy. It is a great option for those who do not want to drop $700 plus on one of the DJI drones, or a great stepping stone from one of the cheaper $100 drones.
That is why we are proudly award Swann and the Xtreem Gravity Pursuit with our Innovation Award for standing out in a ever-crowding drone market.
