TOZO Q2020 Drone Review

Small drones fill an important niche for hobbyists. They’re a little more advanced than the toys you can find online, but they’re not quite as complex as the more expensive drones in which true enthusiasts invest. The TOZO Q2020 drone is a great example of this drone type, a fun machine that won’t break the bank if it’s misplaced or damaged. The purpose of this review is to determine whether the drone will satisfy the needs of its target audience and to help potential buyers determine if the drone is right for them.

TOZO Q2020 Drone Main Features & Specs

The TOZO Q2020 has a few notable features that really help it stand out from the crowd. One that we really appreciated was the altitude hold function. Rather than having to keep your finger on the control stick to keep the drone in the air, this function allows the drone to hover at its current height, a must-have feature for new pilots.

The headless security mode is also a very welcome feature. When you fly a typical drone, all of the controls are oriented so that the drone always moves relative to the drone’s ‘front’. When this security mode is engaged, the drone’s movement is relative to the controller instead, a perfect function for those who tend to lose control of their drones.

There’s also a lovely set of 3D roll controls. This drone performs amazing 3D tricks thanks to its ability to flip 4 ways: left, right, forward, and backward, helped by the 360-degree flips & rolls functions, the drone does continuous rolls.

Finally, the latest 6-axis 4CH flight control system offers more stability to the drone’s systems and provides better and safer user experience. The 6-axis 4CH system is what this drone has in common with the Holy Stone X300c.

TOZO Q2020 Drone Remote Control & Set-up for First Flight

Remote Control

TOZO Q2020 Drone RC QuadcopterThe controller for the drone is set up a bit like a modern video game controller, with a number of buttons on both the controller’s face and on the shoulders.

This makes it a little difficult to get the hang of controlling the device at first, but after one gets used to it, it will get easier.

On the shoulders, there are the speed and flip bumpers, which are separated in the middle by a channel and rudder volume monitor. There’s also a power light, which glows when the controller is active.

Moving from left to right on the controls there are a rudder/throttle stick, a power switch, One Key Landing and the Auto Return mode keys. In the middle, there are the forward/ backward switches. On the right of the controller, there is another direction stick and the side-fly (horizontal) switches.

Flying the Drone

While the drone is easy to fly, your first flight will involve a bit of setup. The good news is that the unit tends to ship with just enough battery power to allow you to fly for a single flight. You’ll want to charge immediately after, as the short flight time will leave you wanting more.

Once you have the unit out of the box, you can start the setup process. We set our drone up and flew it inside, as most reviews have noted that the drone’s lightweight will lead to it being carried away in windy weather.

 

We turned on the drone first, and then the control as instructed. After calibrating, it was fairly easy to unlock the drone and get it in the air.

When you undertake your first flight, get ready to chase the drone around. If you don’t put it in headless mode, you’re going to end up sending the drone zooming away. However, if you’re inside, watch out for walls – the drone has a little more power than you might expect, though not enough to cause any damage to the unit.

What’s in the Box?

What's in the BoxThe drone will come with everything you will need. There are no replacement rotor guards in the box, nor is there a charging cord for those who want a little extra convenience. However, the items packed in the box are enough to use the drone properly, the items are as follows:

  • The TOZO Q2020 Drone RC Quadcopter;
  • The remote controller;
  • 1 Screwdriver;
  • The 3.7V 350mAh LiPo battery;
  • The USB Charger;
  • 4 Replacement Propellers;
  • Instructions Manual.

Our Verdict

Finally, this is a drone for people who want to have fun flying without worrying about losing thousands of dollars in a crash. Therefore, if you’re looking for a drone on which you can learn, or if you just want to play around with a fun toy, this is just the product for that. This isn’t a drone for professionals or for those who are incredibly serious about the hobby. We had fun flying the drone, though, which is the entire point of the device. Have you tried this drone? Let us know what you think in a comment below!

    I thought the same at first BUT the Charger is there with the spare propellers, it is small and plugs directly in a USB. It does NOT look like a Charger, I almost returned mine to Amazon. That said, I have not been able to control the Power, this thing leaps up in the air and when I try to slow down the motors shut off and disconnect ????????

      Hello, Troy!
      Please check the user manual for help with that, or contact the seller if still unable to make the drone take off.
      Thank you and good luck!

    I love this Tozo Q2020. If you’re new to flying quadcopters and want to learn before spending a lot of money on a more expensive drone, then this is a must have. Make sure to buy extra batteries when you buy the drone. I bought 6 extra 400mah batteries and a charger which charges all the batteries at the same time. The drone comes with a 370mah batteries and the 400s fit perfectly. You might even be able to get a 500mah to fit for longer flight times. The altitude hold on this drone is what makes it so amazing. It’s important to trim it on your first flight, then go on from there on. If trimmed properly, it stays put in midair. I also have a Syma X11 which is fun but it’s much much harder to fly because you’re constantly on the throttle to control it’s altitude. For some, having to constantly mess with the altitude leads to discouragement when learning to fly. That is why this Tozo Q2020 is such a great trainer. With this Q2020 you can spend more time learning how to fly rather than chasing after your crashes. Again, get this drone if your new to flying!!! It will save youi a lot of money down the road if you intend on getting into the hobby and buy a more expensive drone.

    Our initial experience was the same as that of Clifford & Ricks. Fortunately I discovered the charger before my son (12yr old) got too frustrated. Regarding control, same there. Power on, leaps up, shuts off and disconnects. I wish I’d been there the next morning though, to see what my son had done, because came in all grins saying he’d figured it out. He’s been flying it all weekend, and my turns on it reveal a very nice & stable drone. So don’t give up too quickly on the initial setup … once its done, the drone is a champ.

    Hello, I enjoy this little drone that I bought to learn how to fly a drone. I have just some difficulties to understand how using the orientation mode and the auto return function. I don’t really undrestand the explanations in the user manual. Could you help me?

    Thanking you in advance.

    best regards.

      Hello, Diwash!
      As we already mentioned in the remote control and set-up for the first flight portion of our review you need to make sure you put the drone in headless mode or you will unavoidably send it zooming away.
      You can also check out the instructions manual for more help. In case the drone’s flight is still not fixed then please contact the seller, a replacement might be necessary, good luck!
