Powervision PowerEgg X drone review

The PowerEgg X drone is incredibly versatile – it can fly in rain and even land on water. It does a lot, but does it do anything well?

Digital Camera World Verdict

The ambition of the PowerEgg X drone is extraordinary, and must be saluted. It beats much pricier competitors when it comes to weatherproofing and is fast and stable in the air even in difficult conditions. Switching from one mode to the next can be a little fiddly, and the software does have a few rough edges, but overall this is a great drone which packs a lot in the shell.

If you’ve never encountered the original PowerEgg, don’t worry; this review cannot be about “what a great step up this is” as the Powervision PowerEgg X is a completely new airframe. 

The original Egg folded, arms and all, into its shell – unique and brilliant. The PowerEgg X, on the other hand, sits horizontally, but it doesn’t have to fly; you either attach drone arms or a camcorder grip & tripod mount. Also entirely unique, but wholly different - and a definite contender as one of the best drones available right now.
