i had ordered in advance and HIGHLY recommend you order a spare set of batteries/props/motors. i got 1 spare stock battery, four full sets of props, another charger, leds, body link for that below. i also picked up four more spare batteries. those however not the stock 380mah but 500mah. another inexpensive extra but so worth if you want to fly for longer and not worry about running out of juice. that link is below too.
as for the directions i have seen worse but i have seen better. i actually found a youtube video that was extremely helpful to get started and figure out the little things like how to make the controls less or more sensitive. the design is very well thought out. the rubber feet mean you can hit the ground and have good protection and not fear breaking anything. i did put my "training wheels" the guard on first though and glad i did. just pry up the props they simply slide on and off. fit the guard on, put the props back on correct side A or B. put 4-AAA into the controller. connect the battery to the copter. once paired it's time to fly.
fyi the controller comes with is MODE 2. as i understand you can change the programming so it functions as mode 1 but i think that is mostly for the benefit of those who are more adept at using their right hand or left for certain functions. i just left mine as is. thankfully a nine year old kid put up a video (better than the adults lol) explaining that part as the manual totally forgot to explain anything about mode 1 or 2 other than how the functions are changed.
the copter is sturdy, well made reminds me of that old times commercial e.g. takes a licking and keeps on ticking. the props are made to pop off before breaking. keep that in mind because you have white and black. imagine now flying over the snow and one of the white one pops off as it is designed to...but you will never find it, white on white. or a dark surface, asphalt for example, with the black blades? my idea get a bottle of some bright gold, silver car touch paint. a very very thin mark on the blades & on both sides. not enough to make a weight difference but enough so you have some contrast when looking for you props when they pop off no matter which side is up, because 100% they will come off.
when your battery is getting low the led lights will start to flash fast. that is your warning to get me somewhere safe soon. you can disable the leds to save power but the savings are minimal and you do want to know when the batteries are getting low. example flying over a road, a body of water...a power failure and crash then and your copter is toast, use the leds no matter. i have to admit i may have an advanced degree, can build a pc from scratch, rebuild a car engine but for this i needed help thanks to the so-so instructions that came with. for that help i turned to youtube and found a superb start up video, short, simple and to the point. that is the last link below. **updated five batteries charging at the same time takes longer, much longer so i ordered another charger. reason why simply put if you have 100/1=100 but 100/5=20 random numbers but point is each battery added reduces what goes to the others as you have the same current going in. that means longer charge times. that is why i got the extra charger and the link is below too.
when all is said and done this is the most fun i've had with anything for ages. i couldn't be happier with and if it wasn't for it being so cold outside, as well as all the snow, i'd be flying right now not writing a review! fyi make sure you have at least 4-AAA batteries on hand(no rechargeables) as you'll need them as said for the controller. it takes a micro sd not a full sized card, (formatted exfat & i use a 64gb card) you'll need one of those too. lastly imho if you are going to get this do it right do get the extra batteries and crash pack. they cost so little and nobody wants to be having a blast with their new toy just because they've run out of power or need a new prop because one got lost.
**UPDATED-how durable this thing is impressive. that said below is a link for additional batteries BUT i found the best way for many hours of non-stop flying. i had a 10K external battery for my phone. it has a 2.1 amp output for fast charging. using that in addition to the four port charger link below. equipped as such all you do is just drain one battery, plug it in and by rotating through the batteries by the time you get to the last the first couple have already fully recharged! a link for a similar external charger again with the 2.1 AMP OUT, is below too.

finally the link i used to help me get started, so much better than the printed manual imho and he's done several videos best i've seen so far;
I give 4 stars because the prop guard that came with it made the unit hard to control. After trying it without the guard, I was able to get better results. I am not sure if it is a problem with just my unit or not. Makes for more interesting crashes :)
