Bayangtoys X16 Review – Cheap Brushless Quad with GPS

Flying the Bayangtoys X16 GPS is probably one of my most enjoyable experiences, it is fast, highly responsive and the GPS built in works like a charm. It is a great entry to the hobbyist category and offers a powerful Brushless motor and stable flight.

I have my full review above, it was a blast flying that quad on top of that hill, not only was it fun but also exhilarating. On top of that hill, the quad was battling strong winds and it can fight through it with ease, the brushless motors are very powerful and strong enough to handle those. The GPS mode feature also works like a charm as well as other features currently available. You can fly it aggressively or docile, it is your choice, the quad is very easy to handle. Also 20 minutes is plenty of time to have fun.

A nice entry to the Hobbyist grade category and Highly Recommended

If you are looking for a powerful Brushless Quad with GPS capabilities, then the Bayangtoys X16 GPS version is of course an obvious choice. It is an entry level, so no high end features just yet, but the bare essentials are there. Power, Responsiveness, Long Flight Time and GPS. It isn’t boring, even though it might look like a Phantom, it flies more like a racing quad.

Highlights of the Bayangtoys X16 GPS version:

  • GPS Module works well, it is accurate and highly reliable
  • One Key Return to home function works
  • Powerful motors and can resist strong winds with no issues
  • Altitude hold also works great, it can maintain it for a long time
  • Highly responsive even on GPS mode, Full Throttle is super quick
  • Throttle response is immediate and very precise
  • Safety features in place for low voltage such as Automatic Return to Home
  • Had a wild crash and it still works like a charm, thumbs up for durability
  • 20 minutes flight time


  • Toyish Transmitter and no telemetry
  • Sometimes it looses binding to the quad with no apparent reason, happened after return to home
  • 5 hours charging time, also comes with proprietary charger
