Headless Mode for beginners
Headless mode is basically a method implemented on a drone that allows you to give up worrying about orientation altogether. Simply speaking, when you choose a headless mode, your drone will go to left when you pull the left transmitter stick and go to right when you pull the right all the time, regardless where your drone is pointing at.

Second...I'm glad I bought extra batteries that came with a charger. The connections are tiny. I have big, thick hands and my fine motor skills aren't what they used to be (I'm 62). The instructions say "charge the battery first" so I did that. The red light on the charger cable (the red light is at the usb end) went out pretty quickly (30 minutes or so). I went to separate the battery from the charger cable and, whoopsy, out comes the wire from the connection that the battery plugs into. Great...so within 30 minutes I have destroyed the charging cable...and I thought I was being gentle. At this point I decided that I would never charge a battery while it was in the drone. Take the whole damn battery out, replace it or charge it, plug it into the drone connector cable, then put the battery in the drone.
Third: The manual is pretty tough to follow along. The Chinese need to hire someone that can write clear concise instructions. They reek, and thats putting it mildly. The instructions, as someone else succinctly put it...will not get you from point A to point B.
The manual does not tell you to move the left controller (the one that isn't spring loaded which controls propeller speed) to force pairing. Even doing that it still took over 5 minutes to pair the controller to the drone. All the blinking lights are confusing to a new user because they are codes. The signal that indicates it isn't paired is...two blinks....about 3 to 5 seonds...two blinks. When it is finally paired, the blinking green light on the controller will be solid. All I can say is....be patient...and when you no longer see the red light on the green/yellow/red light bar projected onto your working surface (its about 1" long and ½" wide), turn off the drone, wait 5 seconds and turn it on again. I had to to do this a few times. It was frustrating so be prepared.
Assembly: This is actually really easy but, the screws are really really tiny. I saw that and immediately moved my work surface from my desk to the kitchen counter and worked on a couple of white napkins. I suspect I dropped the screws about 10 different times. The napkins keep them from rolling to far. I have a tiny motorized hobby screwdriver that I got from Lowes. It was invaluable. I didn't have to use the screwdriver that came with the kit. The prop guards go on super easy (I used mini needlenose pliers to position stuff) and so do the landing struts. I put a drop of Super Glue on each strut attachment point. So far so good.
Pairing the camera: Took about 5 minutes and the instructions are easily understood...but read 'em two or three times anyway. Timing is critical. The camera will only pair with your phone when the red portion of the light bar I previously mentioned is flashing. Also, when the MJX C4005 FPV shows on your phones WiFi networks list ...press it real quick. I waited a few seconds and my phone started defaulting back to my home network and I had to start all over. Anyway, I got it working and the little camera is surprisingly good. I'm pretty happy with it. Neighbors dog might not be.
Flight:...Ahhhh finally. I am a total rookie. My first goal was to get the little beast to hover. Heh....I put it on the patio table and gradually engaged power...Holy Cow. My American gradual and their Chinese gradual are two different things. The little thing leaped twenty feet into the air and took off over my lawn. I instantly let go of everything...it crashed. It was fine. My grass is also nice and thick. Now I get "gradual". Took it back to the table and just barely touched the throttle. I then adjusted the trim switches (in this regard manual is accurate) until I could get it to hover a few inches above the table.
Conclusions: It's a fun little thing but the learning curve is pretty steep. I believe it will be an excellent learning tool for an adult who wants to take up drones as a hobby.
UPDATE: 8/25/2016. OK, I broke it on the second day of use. One of the prop guards broke. Didn't effect flight. Pretty easy fix and I'm up and flying again. I was contacted by OXA USA COM who is an Amazon retailer for this little guy. I have to admit that US retailers and customer service folks could learn a hell of a lot from these folks. They sent me batteries, rotors, rotor guards and a new engine...oh and a cable. Not only that but they over nighted it to me. I think these folks know what is going to break and have kits prepared for distribution. So...Alice (lol)...Thank You. Based on customer service alone I would change this to a 5 star rating. But now that I have the stuff, and an electric hobby screwdriver for those tiny screws, I'm happily playing with my drone again. Thank You so much. Rating changed to 5 stars.
As others have said, the Engrish instructions leave much to be desired, particularly with regards to trimming. The method I used with the second one was to add enough throttle to get it to try to lift off the ground, allowing it to barely drag a skid to get an indication of what way it was pulling. Then I immediately dropped the throttle to ground it, added the appropriate trim, and tried again. The trim buttons beep to acknowledge, but there's no detent or anything which indicates how much you're adding, where you are on the +/- scale, or how close you are to a stop (max value). There is a long beep which you'd assume meant you'd reach the stop. But then you can keep going, perhaps it starts over. It took a lot of experimentation and spare batteries to figure it out. You get approximately 5-7 minutes of flight time per 750mA pack, with perhaps 90 seconds of flight time to get a controlled descent when the drone's battery-low indicator starts to blink. I bought the Blomiky MJX X400 X400W Quadcopter Crash Pack which came with one 800mA spare. And I bought Powerextra 5 Pcs 3.7V 750mAh Lipo Battery, giving me a total of 7. And there's a card in the MJX package that indicates that by writing a review and contacting dbpower, they'll send another spare. The charger that came with the Powerextra package is better than the one that came with the MJX (identical spare in the Blomiky kit as well) because the charger / charger lights shut off on a per-battery basis when charging is complete. In spite of what the instructions indicate, there is no LED indicator on the included USB charging cord. Otherwise, recharging seems to take around 2 hours. And the guidance in the instructions is that you want to store them charged, not depleted; but you don't want to charge them "unattended" and/or leave them on the charger overnight. So a charger with some sort of off-when-done charge circuit is really a requirement. And rather than put them on a flat surface, I sort of stand mine up in an old ceramic coffee mug -- just in case. Note: They come out of the drone warm but charge cool.
As for flying, this is my first drone, though I've had a number of inexpensive RC helicopters over the years. So thus far I've simply been practicing in my carpeted basement. I've not taken it over 7ft high or over 20ft away. It has hit the carpet a number of times and has yet to break the skids or prop guards (stuff I expect to harvest at some point from the crash pack). The one thing that is surprising though is that the FPV is defnitely going to take some practice. First, even within 20ft, the video lags or occasionally cuts out altogether. I've used both my 3-year old Android phone as well as my wife's iPhone 6 with the same results. FPV/VR would likely be impossible. Second, I can already tell that flying FPV (even without the lag) with this camera would be like to trying to fly by looking through a straw. I'll update this review when I determine how useful/fun that is going to be.
So this drone thus far seems to be at the right price vs. risk ratio. Though extra batteries are a must. Always trim it with a good battery. And unless you can get it trimmed out, I wouldn't leave the house with it. If you look at all the 1-star reviews, many of them sound like it wasn't trimmed and it disappeared / got treed on the first flight. And land quickly when the battery gets low. As the voltage drops you'll likely lose the ability to steer FIRST.
Oh, and one minor but understandable annoyance that did NOT effect this review is that that the Wifi camera arrangement means that when you power-on the drone, within the first 30 seconds you'll use your phone to connect to the drone like an open wifi hotspot. From there the app will let you watch the video. But 7 minutes later when you land to swap batteries, you'll shut off your drone, and if you're in/near your house, your phone will likely automatically reconnect to your home wifi. So right when you're ready to take-off again, you've got to switch your phone back to the drone.
DBPower has indicated they're out of stock on spare batteries and will send me a new one for my review when available. I'll update when it arrives.
Also, I've come up with a practice drill for flying in my basement. I take-off and land on a TV tray in the center of the room. It's much harder than it looks because of "ground-effect" as you get over the tray. This develops the fine motor skills for steering while simultaneously adjusting the throttle. Also, breaking free from ceiling-suck without crashing to the floor is another good skill. And I still haven't broken anything even after crashing into the tray or skid-tumbling off the tray to the carpeted floor.
I experimented a bit more with FPV. The small field-of-view (FOV) of the camera would make it difficult to fly anywhere but in a large open field. Further the FPV calibration method is that you pick a "forward" direction to face, then put the drone on the ground at your feet facing in that same direction and push the designated button. That makes sense for a flight with you in the center of a large circle in a wide open field. Then you would literally fly circles around yourself with a continuous left throttle. But as soon as you begin to turn around to see the drone flying behind you, things get complicated.
