My First Drone Media Launch of Propel RC Philippines

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Many would see it more like a toy but it definitely does a lot more than just fly or hover. It has its limitations compared to the expensive ones, but what would you expect from a less than 1K (P998) worth of gadget?

True enough to their launch title, Propel RC Philippines' Atom 1.0 Micro Drone could be your ideal "first drone" as its price is not too bad that it would be easier for us to lose or break them without regretting the cost of investment. You get to practice flying a drone so you could be better when using the more expensive brands and models.

They did showed us a couple of bigger models but the night was focused on the micro drones.

The media launch was held on March 23, 2017 at the Vu's Sky Bar & Lounge of Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas.

The micro drone, which is small enough to easily land on the palm of your hand, is battery operated and available in several colors. However, they are starting only with four colors (black, silver, blue and red) for the Philippine media launch. Though the organizers showed me several color options, they would probably become available only if the demand is high enough.

During the media launch, the organizers said it would be available that night at Lazada online shopping portal and at selected Family Mart and 7-11 convenience stores by March 27, 2017.

They also recently announced that the Atom Micro Drone 1.0 will also be available in all Hobbes and Landes and Build City locations starting April 11, 2017.

Below are more technical specifications of the Propel Micro Drone 1.0:

I did an unboxing some time ago as posted on my social media accounts and it revealed the need for two triple A batteries for the remote control. The drone itself could be recharged via USB.

The brand offers a 90-day warranty on manufacturer defects and 1 year free replacement for blades. Though in its box includes already spare blades just in case you do get to damage or lose them.

More videos can also be seen at our YouTube channel  at including our exclusive interview with David Borden, Executive Team Leader of Propel RC Customer Service.
