This Altair Falcon was our first GPS drone and the addition of GPS and auto-return to a drone in this price range is unbelievable. We kept the prop guards on the Falcon, as we are using it for educational uses and it makes a very decent indoor drone for large spaces such as a gym, even without the GPS signal to stabilize it. Videos are decent 720p [edited, oops], though a bit of a fisheye effect as with most small camera drones.
Summary starting with the pros:
+ well made recreational camera drone
+ comes with spare battery and box usable as a case
+ spare parts such as extra "landing gear", rotors, and screws included
+ rotor blade protector: easily removed, great to have for beginners!
+ basic controller, but works well up to 200+ft
+ easiest pre-flight setup of any GPS enabled drone we have tried
+ clamp to hold smartphone or small tablet works on controller works well even for larger smartphones such as Galaxy Notes 10
+ FlyingSee app is basic, OK, but, see below
- return to home is not quite as good as on other more expensive GPS, but it does function
- neither the app FlyingSee nor the remote give indication of remote control battery state
- custom route feature didn't work well for us
- video is shaky with any wind at all, most still shots are OK
- interface is flaky when trying to capture still photos, we had to stop video, take photo, resume video
- trim didn't seem to work well
As with all small, light drones when operated with any wind at all, they may fly off anywhere. Can't hold this against the AA Falcon, just a warning that if you expect flying stability in windy conditions, look to get at least 1/2lb drone!
All in all, for a starter drone this drone works very well, 5 stars! Hoping the few quirks we saw in video/photo controls are fixed with a software update soon.
This drone can take a beating- you can fly it into things and then keep going- but there are extra parts and a little screwdriver just in case. There are two rechargeable batteries as well which allows you to keep on playing a little more.
It weighs in very light and is small in size, so it’s safe to fly for beginners and young people. While made for backyard flight, we could fly this little drone indoors,too.
The controller came with a card stock guide chart attached- thankfully for us beginners. Linking to the WiFi with my smart phone then allowed us to act like advanced droners with aircraft controls on the phone screen that show real-time video of the craft in flight. The phone clip worked well so we didn’t have to set everything down. With the phone in charge, the photo and video control feature was a snap.
This drone is a fast flyer with quick response. Just a ton of fun.
This might be a bit long because this is new to me.
First, there is a learning curve, no doubt about it.
It comes with two batteries which last 10 minutes each.
I've now gone through 3 sessions of 20 minutes.
The first session, I practiced indoors until I thought I understood it.
I took it outside, was having a good time, I let it get too far away from me, and it flew off into the wild blue yonder.
It took me an hour and a half to find it in the desert.
After two sessions outdoors, it's apparent any kind of breeze makes flying this thing an almost impossible challenge.
I managed to connect my phone through the app, and took some pictures. The resolution is only 720, but it did the job as expected. I'll try doing movies, but will wait until I get better at flying on a less breezy day.
This thing is fun and might lead me to a more advanced unit someday.
The only thing I don't like is that the instructions say it takes an hour to charge each battery, but in actuality it's more like 3 hours, which means it takes 6 hours charge time to fly 20 minutes.
It would be better if they provided 2 charge cables so at least both batteries could be charged at the same time.
But this thing is fun, and built to take some punishment as I crashed it many times, and it hardly shows.
+ Flies well and easy to pilot. The AHP thing seems to work great, hovers in place and responds well
to the controls.
+ Easy enough for kids to fly, neighbor kids used it without problem and took to it right away.
+ Intuitive, pick up the controller, turn on the drone and you're flying. Very simple.
- Shortish flight time. I know it's standard for roughly 10 minutes of flight time at this price
level, but it'd be nice if someone could manufacture a longer lasting battery.
- Comes with 2 batteries so you can swap them out--so that helps make up for it, but you might want to grab some extra batteries.
