The box comes complete with everything you need. The controller comes with four AA batteries. The drone comes pre-assembled and includes the needed tiny battery and a 2 GB memory card for the camera. There's also a battery charger that plugs into a USB outlet. The memory card ejects from the drone and plugs into an included USB adapter. Thoughtfully Heli-Max included four spare props and a tiny screw driver.
The controller is good quality for the price. The controls are fairly smooth and easy to finesse in flight. The joysticks were quick to learn and adjacent to each are trim toggles which make fine adjustments when the joystick is centered to adjust for any drift. On the back where each index finger rests are buttons to snap photos or start the video camera. There's a YouTube video from Heli-Max describing how to change the the controller between two modes - the kinder gentler learning mode and a more aggressive mode. I'm still in the training mode setting the response to a very smooth 35%.
The quadcopter itself is pretty well constructed as well. I've crashed it more times that I can count ... including once 25 feet up in a tree in the backyard and into the concrete and haven't managed to break it yet. The camera is very tiny and has an adjustable lens which I have angled down slightly. I've posted some sample captures in this review separately. It's a 1 MB camera that weighs less than half an ounce ... what to you want? A neat novelty but not something you're going to use for professional use. The plastic cover pops off easy enough. The four propellers are pretty rugged but a tip I read and have followed is that if you're crashing zero the throttle out quickly.
The white and black propellers and the white (front) and red (rear) LEDs on each motor pod make orienting the quad easier. It's a challenge to spin, fly in all four directions and manage up and down all at the same time. A wee bit of breeze like I have today makes it even more the challenge.
I managed to lose one propeller in my tree crash. The spare propellers are clockwise and counter-clockwise so make sure you replace any lost props with the right twist prop.
I'm running the USB charger in a "high current" USB port used for charging an iPad vs. a lower power one like might be used for a cell phone. The battery charges up in about 45-60 minutes and I've been getting 4-6 minutes worth of flight time flying very aggressive.
I've had this thing up about 40-50 feet up in the air and it felt like it could have continued to climb if I hadn't lowered the power. I haven't let it get too far away yet but it's been a bunch of fun learning to hover, rotate, and climb and lower the drone.
Complete and ready to fly
Rugged and handles crashes
Easy to use
Video and still camera included
Spare propellers included (get more spares)
Short battery life (get spares)
Not the highest quality camera
I was expecting something a little more stable when I first took off, since I was used to my AR, so I crashed hard, but it survived without damaging the blades. Second time I was gentler on the sticks like I would be on my Blade MCX-2 and I that seemed to do the trick. This thing is tiny and has a lot of thrust for its size, so it's really easy for it to dart out of control. It takes some getting used to, but it's really fun once you get the hang of it.
My biggest regret was paying the extra for the camera model. The camera cuts the already short flight time in half so I never use it. The micro sd card it came with is absolute junk, corrupting almost all of the videos. Replacing the Micro SD fixed the corruption problems.
That said, the video quality is great! I wish I could get it to fly properly.

Ich habe den Quadcopter auf einer Unterlage neu ausgerichtet, und wollte starten, da hatte das Fluggerät keine Funktion.
Nach dem ich die Heli-Max Lipo Battery vom Gerät gelöst habe, um den Heimweg anzutreten flackerte die Displayanzeige beim Sender.
Ich habe dann versucht die Battery über meinen PC aufzuladen.
Beim wiederholten Verbinden der Battery mit dem Quadcopter leuchteten die LEDs für ca. 1 bis 2 Sekunden auf.
Das Fluggerät zeigte beim Umlegen des Starthebels am Sender keine Funktion.
Man kann das Gerät nicht bis zur völligen Entleerung des Akkus betreiben, da man nicht erkennen kann, wann der Akku leer ist. Eine kleine Displayanzeige wäre möglicherweise eine Lösung. Es ist bekannt, dass bei solchen Fluggeräten die Batterie der Knackpunkt ist. Es ist von Vorteil immer eine Ersatzbatterie mit zu kaufen. Das Gerät ist daher nur bedingt empfehlenswert, weil das Testen sehr kurz war.
