Purchased the above package deal. Received it the next day. Packages were in perfect shape no shipping damage. My son and I had read and viewed any and all information regarding the set up and flying of the FC 40. After following every instruction to the letter. We are now ready to go to the field for our maiden voyage! Oops problem! The slow flashing yellow light. No matter what we tried the slow flashing yellow light persisted. We go back home do some more research and discover this is not an uncommon problem. It would appear to most likely be a compass issue? Any way shipping it back to Amazon this morning. Tried and tried DJI CS. Always experiencing an usual high amount of calls? Try back later. Tried for a full day every few minutes. Was never able to talk to anyone. Not a good sign! Undecided if we will purchase another.

I am giving this a 3 start rating (it's ok) because main product is good, but it's bundled products are bellow expectations.

Anti-vibration mount: provides little benefit over not using it at all. It does not compare at all to using a gimbal and won't even fit supplied camera.
Extra battery: Very helpful and is a total must.
Cleaning Cloth: I have not used it yet.
Extra Props: These are the older props. The new prop get about 2 min more flight time for about the same price (~13 dollars on amazon)
Prop Guards: Work well if you used the older props, but are too small for DJI's newer longer flight time props.

Summary: If I had to do it again, I would just find a bundle with an extra battery.

I bought this quadcopter as my entry into the X-copter hobby because the one I built did not work out so well. It was a great choice as I want another. Currently eyeballing other dji products to expand my FX40 and expand my current fleet of one :-). Unlike past outdoor RC products I have purchased, this product has a wider range of wind speed that it can handle. Thus far I have been able to fly in up to 22 mph winds. Also, unlike other RC's, I have not had to sink as much money into repairs thus I have been able to enhance it further to my liking.

This package has the needed starter accessories to enjoy flying the Phantom day one! The blade guards do actually do a great job of protecting the propellers. Never needed to use the extra propellers because the blade guards worked so well. You probably only need one set of guards...unless you get to aggressive with the Phantom. The extra battery will be desired after your first flight because you will really want to fly this copter again. In fact, buy as many batteries as you can. Also, I never really had to suffer from the video jello effect because of the extra dampener accessory.

Overall, I love this thing! My next one will be a DJI for sure! Not sure if it will be the S800 Evo or the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ (coming late April 2014).

I purchased this unit and package for my man friend's 56th birthday. He LOVES it so much that now he has purchased an I-Pad just so that he can watch the flight while it is taking place. He can also do so on his telephone, but the I-Pad mini has a bit bigger viewing screen. The video from the camera is amazing! I cannot believe how high this thing goes...and it gets up there FAST. I like that it is quiet, durable, and reliable--just like the way I like my man. :)

If your just getting into the drones, this is the one to get. Even if you have a gopro, you can still mount it to the FC40 configuration. This model is an inexpensive total kit. I recommend starting out with the FC40. Once your comfortable and ready to start adding gimbles and other add-onns, sell this to someone else and upgrade.

There are no instructions in the box and the item did not come with any user manual. There is no information at all on or in the box as to where to even go to get a user manual.

Be sure to get the user manual from the DJI web site at http://www.dji.com/product/phantom/download

Item was purchased as a gift. It does not come with instructions or a manual (had to search online). Works well and is very sturdy. Having actual controls makes it easier maneuver vs using a phone or tablet.

This has me obsessed, I love the Phantom, love the camera though I added a wifi extender so I could fly FPV. Great introductory model. Buy at least 3-4 extra batteries...trust me.....

Been having a blast with my Phantom. Well built and put out a great picture. Two other friends have bought one since watching mine fly.

Easy to fly, comes back as advertised, great photos. Suggest securing the camera to the Phantom with a mono-filament line in case it drops off.
