XSW UFO APP
This App is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones. It has a user-friendly interface and it is updated regularly. You can use this app so it can extend the functionality of the remote controller. It can provide FPV functionality, Follow Me, Waypoint, and it also provides telemetry information. On the top of the screen, it shows an OSD status bar that shows the following: Speed, distance, altitude, number of satellites available, roll/pitch/yaw values, and battery level.
- Follow Me – This mode allows the drone to lock onto the smartphone and follow you wherever you go.

According to David, this drone is quite affordable and comes with great features. It has a decent flying time; I just wish the battery of the remote controller is rechargeable. It is lightweight and has a compact design, making it easy to transport whenever you have to travel to different places. It has a 1080p resolution camera and compatible with the Micro SD card. It has a return to home button that prevents your drone from getting lost when the signal gets cut off or when the battery is too low.
According to Mark, the Visuo XS812 is a great beginner drone. It is low-cost but comes with cool features such as return home feature, headless mode, etc. When getting an SD card, do not get a card with a capacity bigger than 32 GB because it will not work. I used the remote controller and the app, I love its user-friendly interface and I was able to use the FPV mode. I just wish it has brushless motors and mechanical gimbal for image stabilization.
