Quadcopter Cheerson CX-10 Overview

Hi Everyone, I am Antony Alston, the Senior Editor of this site. Cheerson manufacturer produces a variety of models including the Cheerson CX-11, Cheerson CX-20, and Cheerson CX-30. However, this article will only offer you information on the Cheerson CX-10 Review.

Cheerson CX-10 is considered as one of the smallest quadcopters at the time of writing this article. This record has held before by the Estes Proto X Quadcopter or Hubsan Q4.

Cheerson was an unknown manufacturer before the start of the year 2014. Throughout the time they have released a variety of RC Quadcopters and their cheerson cx-10 cx10 mini (hailed as the World’s Smallest Quadcopter), which is a mini model and make up an excellent gift for anyone.

I was surprised how tiny the cx 10 quadcopter actually was when unboxing the package. I inserted the 2 x AAA batteries and charged them for roughly around five minutes or so. Next, I installed the cheerson cx-10 prop guard for safety against a sudden crash.

In the meantime, I went through the cheerson cx-10 manual, which covers the basic procedure to start the CX 10 Quadcopter. It fits into my palm easy and calm – thank the dimension of the Cheerson CX 10.

This Mini 29mm Quadcopter is affordable, comfortable, easy to fly and offers the best value for the investment. Below, I explained how to begin your first CX 10 Quadcopter flight in step-by-step points for a better understanding.

  • Turn or switch on the Cheerson CX-10 Mini RC Quadcopter unit
  • Turn on the Cheerson CX-10 transmitter or remote control
  • Now engage the control throttle in the pattern of (left stick, down stick, then up and down once again. Currently, you may hear some beeps.
  • The blade of the CX 10 Quadcopter should start spinning once you move the left-throttle up (It is not recommended to go for the full-throttle to avoid the crash in your wall or ceiling).
  • You can make use of the button for a fine-tune motion. You are in the middle position if you hear a long beep sound.
  • You can put the Cheerson CX-10 Quadcopter on a flat surface if the nog is not hovering or aligned. The built-in LED light on the model will light up and self-correct the gyroscope.

I made a few heavy crashes into the ceiling, but it is a little Nano-sized Best-Quadcopter. Thankfully, it came with a couple of main blades and four extra rotor blades, but I have used only one of those till now.

The rotor might come flying off after a heavy crash, but refitting it will get the job done. This is one of the best mini quadcopters out there on the market, especially for the affordable price tag.

    Bought two CX-10 and when doing the accelerator calibration (Left stick left and down, Right stick left and up) the blue led’s just continue to flash. The orange CX-10 led’s flash for a few seconds and the go steady as per the instructions. Is there a fix for this calibration issue for my blue one or is the copter defective?

    Love Your Review by the way. I wrote a review in Portuguese!

      Thanks for your appreciation 🙂

    I had to learn the hard way that the rotors are directional. This makes perfect sense now that I know it. However, at my first rotor change it wouldn’t fly anymore and I blamed the crash. As it turns out, I installed an incorrect motor making it act like not enough power at one end. I just wanted to share this in case there are any other noobs who might need to know.

      Thanks for sharing your experience on how to cope with this problem. I think this could be helpful for others struggling with CX-10. Sometimes little solutions can be game changer.

  4. Marcel

    I had the same problem as you, I try your write-up.

    1. antonyalston

      It seems a lot of people are having problem with the take-off. Try to follow the remedy I suggested for Simon and if problem still persist reply here back and we’ll figure something out as a permanent solution maybe a dedicated article etc.

    mine won’t take off, I used it for the first time and crashed it into the wall not that hard and now it won’t take off, any suggestions?

    1. antonyalston

      While you can buy the Cheerson CX-10 for cheapest price, it is vulnerable to crashes (in worst scenario even it may break off). This is the gamble with buying a smallest unit of quadcopter like this. It may be suitable for a beginner or a person who is adventured into a first-time flight, but not so for an expert. Anyways, better get a CX-10 Propeller Blade and check-out whether it takes off or not. If not, try clean up the motor. If problem still exist better contact the seller from which you bought the unit either for replacement or refund.

    Bought Cheerson cx-10 today. I am a first timer in quad copters.
    Pros: really small, excellent control, stable, doing flips is really easy and exciting, fast charging, 6 min of flight time
    Cons: only 4 blades are provided, i have broken 2 in the first day itself!

    1. antonyalston

      Yeah Cheerson CX-10 Quadcopter is an excellent quadcopter for beginners and first time-flyers. Anyways, thank you for sharing your opinion on this model. I might add a few of your mentioned points on a later date when there is a free time.

    great quadcopter it was fun intel i broke all the props so i ordered new props and when they got here i put them on and tried to connect the controller to the quad any thoughts?

    1. antonyalston

      The Cheerson CX-10 Quadcopter is worth the investment and it does not get better than crashing it. It is always recommended to buy a new set of propellers (as you did now) since it is prone to crash. You should be able to fly the quadcopter if remote controller is connected properly.

    Is there a download of the manual?

    1. antonyalston

      Alone if you read this instruction manual you will know how to perform a 360 degree flip or shift among Intermediate, Advanced and Junior flight mode.

      This manual contains also a few safety evaluation and measurement about the usage of high-capacity lithium batteries. The Cheerson CX-10 Quadcopter operates on an integrated (3.7V 100mAh Li-Po) battery which enables you a up to 7-8 minutes of flight.

    I Just got this little guy from an online marketplace, a ton of fun around the house.

    1. antonyalston

      Cheerson CX-10 is one of the easy to fly mini quadcopter out there on the market. Enjoy the maximum and have a ton of fun and excitement. All the best!

    Hi Antony, I just ordered a Skye Nano at gizmag store somebody commented that it’s exactly likle the Cheerson CX-10, just rebranded and sold more expensive. Is it a rip-off? If you google for skeye nano you find several websites selling it for 40% off, so at around 35 USD. But the Cheerson can be found for 22 USD. Would be cool if you check it out and write a comparison review about it. Thank you

    1. antonyalston

      Cheerson is a Chinese Quadcopter Manufacturer. There may be a few fake Cheerson CX-10 look alike models out there on various online marketplace. In my opinion, Skeye Nano looks like a rip-off of cheerson cx-10, but it is just my thought. According to sources, it is also not happen to be the official cheerson redistributor. The odds are more likely to make it a fake and not a genuine product. I recommend you to buy Cheerson CX-10 from any if the link given in this review article. All of it point to the official Cheerson CX-10 manufacturer description page on Amazon. Thank you

    I have bought two cheerson cx-10 after 10 flygths and some little bad lands, all model can’t raise, bad quality for this toys.
    I’s durable ? YES 1 days!!

    1. antonyalston

      Hi Polipo,

      The Cheerson CX-10 is not the durable RC Best Quadcopter out there, but do aware it is the current World’s Smallest Quadcopter. The nano-sized motor, design, body construction and battery may impact the quality of the product to an extend. Yes it may be true that it only last for a reasonable period even after little crashes, but not a permanent replacement to enjoy the most out of a quadcopter.

      However, I recommend you contact the supplier from which you bought and ask for a replacement if it has one. If not, I recommend you to buy Hubsan x4 line of quadcopters. These are perfect alternative to Cheerson CX-10, but very durable and withstand simultaneous crashes. Below I shared the link of review for that model
