This is the most fun RC aircraft that I have ever flown, it's incredibly stable and FAST! It truly provides the best of a 4 channel helicopter and a fixed wing aircraft - rock solid hover, VTOL, acrobatic tricks, and insanely stable fast forward flight (first time I have ever felt comfortable doing this).
Mine drifted to the right badly out of the box, trim would not help, but the instructions show how to re-calibrate the unit to correct for this. The radio that comes with the RTF aircraft is the fanciest I have had so far from Blade, gone is the pointed antenna and you have two additional channels - flight mode, panic / camera. The rest is what you would expect, same somewhat cheap radio layout with the small trim buttons. My only complaint on the radio is that it's easy to flip the flight modes while you're just carrying it around, I had one crash because it was set to the stability / agility mode and banking to the right caused an unplanned low altitude flip. Always check the flight mode on the radio before taking off!
The camera is about what you'd get from an old first generation camera phone, nothing special. Video is extremely shaky (to be expected, I suppose) and the lens aperture is not very wide (not much light). I took a bunch of selfies and random blurry photos by accident while playing with the Panic button, not realizing that the unit comes with a microSD card pre-installed and the Panic channel converts to a Camera channel when it is in place. The camera seems to be on some sort of a vertical gimbal mechanism, which is cool.
Overall, AWESOME product! So much fun to fly, the stability is wonderful. But keep in mind that this is still a 4 channel (well, technically more) aircraft and is not meant for kids or beginners. But I do highly recommend it as a way to learn basic 4 channel flight characteristics before moving on to helicopters.
This was my first quadcopter. 10 years ago, a flew a coaxial helicopter and a fixed pitch helicopter. I went back to trucks and planes, but decided to give helis or quads another try. Things have really come along. It is easier to fly than a fixed pitch helicopter, and equally as easy to fly as a coxial helicopter. However, it has a lot more control authority than a coaxial heli, and won't get carried off with a 3 mph wind.
If you look at the manufacturer's page, and advertising, all the good things they say about this are pretty much right. (and there are a lot of them) They won't mention the bad things; that's what I'm here for. Let me do a Pro/Con list:
+ Easy to fly (for a helicopter-type ship)
+ Durable design; takes more to damage it than a heli.
+ Killer good looks
+ LEDs help quite a lot with orientation at dusk
+ Not big or powerful enough to really hurt someone. (unless you fly it into their eyes)
+ Affordable enough to learn on
+ Affordable batteries
+ Camera footage (video and still) is surprisingly good, for such a small camera!
- Can't handle a lot of wind; motors and battery aren't powerful enough
- Too small to fly more than about 100' away without losing orientation
- Geared-down brushed motors are a bit noisy, but nothing objectionable.
I had one hit where I clipped some leaves in a tree, then crashed down about 10' on to bricks. It landed right on one of the ends, and messed it up. I opened up that end with the little screwdriver that came with the Zeyrok, re-aligned the motor gear with the spur gear, screwed it back together, and it was up and flying 5 minutes later. That would have been a devastating, parts-breaking crash with a heli.
In the beginner mode, with the rates turned down, I can fly walking speed around obstacles as a challenge. Around trees and weeds, in local parks (away from kids). Go to the higher rate mode opens the flight envelope a bit more; then, it can be flown in a larger area or slightly more wind.
Going to the intermediate mode, the allowed bank angles are much higher, and it can handle up to about a 10 mph wind
In Expert mode, a tiny movement of the stick makes a big movement of the Zeyrok. This really is for experts who like to do stunts and high-G flying. I don't fly here. The thing about Expert Mode on this one is that it has all the control authority for banking and yawing, but the power system is too gutless to do serious stunts. Doesn't matter HOW good you are.
This quad is a little too big to fly in a house, but would be fine in a school gym, for example.
Compared to my Traxxas Aton, this one is simpler, less powerful, but no less fun, I'd say. It is actually more of a pure flying experience, as it doesn't have as many bail-out options.
The stick action of the transmitter is quite smooth; better than RTF transmitters for RC cars and trucks.
One last warning: it is easy to fly *for a helicopter.* Compared to driving a car or boat, or even a plane, it is harder, because the pilot has to control 4 things, all at the same time: throttle, yaw (rotation), and banking. With a plane, there are three dimensions it can be flown through, but one can pretty much leave the throttle in one spot, and just control the rest. With cars/trucks, there are mostly just 2 dimensions, and SO easy to bail out. The only way to have more challenge is by racing and varying the terrain.
With the Zeyrok, one can challenge oneself by flying it slowly and precisely around obstacles, or quickly and smoothly through patterns in the air. Ground terrain doesn't matter, but wind does.
If you have any possibility of wanting the camera, go for it now. It is good enough to be worth the extra $40. It includes the camera, the landing skis, and a micro SD card that inserts right into the size of the quad. I attached a self-portrait pic, so you can get an idea.
DO read the instructions, or you'll miss out.
