The packaging of the drone is very good, and it comes with all important parts needed to assemble the drone before it starts working. It is of a standard size 12.7 x 9.2 x 3 inches and the weight is almost 2.9 ounces. The main reason behind the manual assembling is that if by any chance it creates a problem the buyer can open it and repair it.

Materials :
It is made in such a way so that it is durable and light weight. Its propellers are protected with plastic frames so that on collision it doesn’t break. It is also provided with landing gears, so that again no collision happens while landing.

Assembling :
The drone does not come assembled, it needs to be assembled manually. All the basic information for manual assembling is provided with the drone, and is understandable, with each step described in details. The APP control, which is needed to operate the drone needs to be downloaded, and the site links are also provided with the drone.
The drone comes with an extra battery, so that if the current one malfunctions in any way, the other can be used without much fuss. It is also provided with a USB charging cable, a screwdriver , several screws, four propeller guards and also four extra set of propeller guards.

Pros :
Coming to the pros, here are few that makes it somewhat an interesting catch. It gives live feed to the phones, and thus it is very helpful at times. Next, it obviously connects over Wifi . Also, it has a great speed and is very fast. It goes from the ground to a height of 20m within seconds and so the time limit, doesn’t create a big problem. The forward/backward, left/right, up/down gyroscope works perfectly on the phone and thus operating it is very easy. It is also very hardy and doesn’t break easily even after the collision. It is pretty inexpensive and is thus an excellent quadcopter for the beginners.

Cons :
Lowering the cost price has surely lead to a compromise in the material and is obviously made of some cheap material. After every crash, the blade at top pops out and gets bent and hits the rotors. It needs to be manually corrected. The directions provided with the drone is not very specific, thus can give the kids a tough time. It is also a bit difficult to be calibrated. Also, at times it easily loses control and starts moving in odd directions. The hover ability is bad. At times, the phone control may prove to be hard, so missing an old style stick control is possible.

Verdict :
Based on the features and specifications, AKASO X5KW seems to be a very customer friendly drone. It is not only cheap but also hardy and is a good buy for kids and beginners. But if one is looking for a solid drone, with some interests in mind, then it might not be your cup of tea. For long term usage, it is surely not suggested. So, it’s better to think about the purpose of the drone, and based on that the purchase should be done.
