My one tip - calibrate the gyro. Don't bother trimming.
I assume you start in beginner mode (press left controller until 1 beep)
- put it on level ground
- switch to advanced mode (press IN on the left controller twice until you get 3 beeps)
- move left stick to lower left and hold
- move right stick to upper left and hold
- it will flash when the calibration is complete after a few seconds
- switch back to mode 1 (press IN on the left controller once to get back to 1 beep)
It flies MUCH better after calibrating.
Also - Flipping is a blast.
- Press IN on the right controller stick until you get a beep
- The next left or right movement on the right stick will flip the quad
I think it does forward flips too.

Fun little quadcopter.
You charge the copter with USB, the controller has 2 x aaa batteries. The controls are reasonable and responsive.
I wish it was a bit more stable, but it's way better than "regular" copters. I may try calibrating the accelerometer, there are instructions to do it.
Very tiny, relatively quiet, and a blast to play with.
I learned if it flys out of the 75 foot range, the link is broken and is not reconnected when it comes back into range. If you are flying it horizontally and it flys out of range it just drops to the ground.
Battery life is about 5 minutes. When the battery is running down the running lights start flashing, giving you about 15 seconds to land. Once the battery level has been spent, the copter will not respond, until charged. This copter takes some real abuse and still keeps working. While flying 75 feet up mine lost connection and hit the concrete, it sustained no damage and was able to take off again instantly, I was amazed.
Just a note the blades are counter rotating, so you MUST replace a left-hand prop with a left-handed prop, the props are marked "A" and "B". It sounds simple but if one is swapped, it will NOT fly.
Its really hard to control, I had to practice taking off and landing on my mattress, later I tried placing post-its on my mattress and taking off and landing near the post-its. Now I have a pretty good grasp as to how to control it. So far I have crashed it about 50 times and the propellers have not broken yet, it also comes with 4 spare propellers in case you are a daredevil.
The manual is the only thing that needs to improve. It is written in poor English, but it is so easy to use and to setup that I didn't have to read it. What is most amazing is that it only takes me 15 minutes to charge this little baby via the USB of a MacBook Pro. This has become my new hobby or break-game. I take it to work and when I need a break I go to Ping Pong room and fly this all over the place :)
I would imagine this toy is really for kids 15+ of age. Also, it kinda hurts if the propeller hits you when its flying -- I learned this while trying to land this tiny toy on my head -- ouch!
Note: Keep in mind that this drone is only $16 bucks so don't expect a DJI performance. It won't hover and hold place without making constant minor adjustments. It's not always going to fly straight. It'll slowly veer left and right from time to time. You need to constantly trim the drone depending on how much battery/power the drone has. And just because it's small doesn't mean it'll take more blow. Be gentle with it because little bad boy can get zippy.
Tip: For those flying drone for the first time, DO NOT fly over hard floor because I know FOR FACT that you'll either hit the ceiling or a wall and crash miserably. Instead, fly it over a carpet, large bed, or (probably the best place) over a grass. That way you can minimize the damage to your drone.
