Decent, but great Customer Service
on February 19, 2017
This is (was) my first drone. I didn't want to drop $1000 on a DJI until I knew how to fly. This little guy is a great drone. I will keep this short: I didn't test the camera or even use it. I just wanted to get a drone I could fly indoors and practice. The first thing I can say is READ THE MANUAL. There are things on the controller that are not obvious as far as operation (like trimming the forward/back/left/right). That said, this does fly well for a $100 drone. However one of the motors burned out after my 2nd day of use. So that was rude. Also I would HIGHLY suggest you use the prop guards...my houseplants would also very much agree. Here's a list of pros and cons:
1 - Flies well and is very durable (I crashed it about 20 times)
2 - Great lights for night flying
3 - Looks cool
4 - Comes with 2 batteries (about 5 min. of flight each one)
1 - Motor burned out on day 2
2 - You have to screw in the prop guards which isnt obvious in the instruction manual
3 - Batteries are kind of a pain to swap out
4 - The light on the USB battery charger dont turn green when the battery is charged
So overall I think this is a $49 drone, not a $100 drone. I am not a fan of having to contact support and wait for motors along with shipping and all that hassle. For $100 I thought the motors would at least last a few months...it's not like I was flying in wind or even outside. But it is a cool little drone, just not super well made.
UPDATE: They sent out a replacement drone to me right away after reading my review on Amazon. That is unheard of these days!
