Product Description

Color:Quadcopter Only

Ionic Stratus Drone Quadcopter for GoPro with 6-axis gyro system, one-key return, headless mode, shock absorption cradle head (Silver)(Compatible with Hero4)

The first affordable highly versatile 6-axis gyro-system based drone quadcopter capable of carrying a go pro Hero camera. Compatible with all models of go pro Hero, this quadcopter comes equipped with the attachment in which you can attach your go pro camera. This is a microcomputer controlled remote controller system using 2.4G connection technology.

Product Description:
Throttle control stick can be customized per the convenience of the player. The control functions supported are:
  • upward
  • downward
  • forward
  • backward
  • leftward
  • righward
  • turn left
  • turn right
  • 3D flips
  • roll of the copter
Headless mode support:
This quadcopter supports the headless mode, in which you don't have to worry about the orientation of the quadcopter when it is flying. If a drone does not support headless mode, when you use direction controls like left/right/front/back, it applies with respect to quadcoptor's front and back, not your left/right/front/back. So if quadcopter's orientation has changed while flying, which is a very common thing to happen, then when you press left, right, it will be with respect to quadcopter's current orientation, not with respect to where and how you are standing. In headless mode, irrespective of quadcopter's orientation, when you press "forward", the quadcopter will move forward with respect to your location, when you press "left", the quadcopter will move left with respect to your location, and so forth.

For the price it is a good drone.
Pros;
Very inexpensive
Easy to fly (with some practice)
Looks cool
Batteries and replacement parts are super cheap

Cons;
The shock mount is terrible, making any GoPro video terrible
Parts (especially props as of 16 Oct. 2015) are hard to find and take long times to ship, around a month

Overall the drone is not bad, and if I can build a better shock mount then the drone may actually have excellent video, but until then I have to leave it at four stars. After flying for a few weeks I can combat smalls winds, but I would not recommend flying if it is really windy. I would have saved my money for a better drone, because I was hoping to use it for more of a professional system for cheap. Though this drone is very good as a first drone, or a fun toy that can get video for friends and family.

I have attached a video, this was from my first flight at low altitudes with a GoPro Hero 4 on 1080 wide FOV, the narrow FOV will crop out the landing struts, but also makes the video appear more bouncy.

Two comments:
1. This thing is really easy to lose. Be careful about going too high(especially if there is any wind) and losing control.
2. I had trouble making the remote connect, it would have saved some time and frustration if I had looked at Number 3 at the top of page 5 of the manual, "Both of the two buttons should be either on the position of 'R' or 'L', otherwise, the remote controller can not be activated."
I never would have bought this myself. It was a gift and I'm having great fun with it.

An update... I notice some say the screws don't fit, they do fit, you just have to apply a little pressure to get them started. Some say the directions are terrible. That's true, but you can find most of what you need if you look carefully. I thought the return button didn't work, but then I saw it is only supposed to work in headless mode. If you go looking for helpful video or posts on the web there is basically nothing... you are on your own.
All of that said, I can't believe you can get something the performs like this at this price.

I would classify myself as an intermediate RC flyer. Right out of the box this drone did not disappoint. The gyros on this are rock solid and make this a very stable platform. If you have no experience flying RC I recommend that you go to a big open field, with no wind, and practice low altitude maneuvers. The “out of cockpit” experience can be very disorientating. If you feel like you are in trouble, at low altitude you can use the throttle only to gently bring it down. It may not be a graceful landing but it will likely be a gentle one if you manage the throttle properly. Another caution, I’m used to toggle switches on top of the transmitter and the way I hold the transmitter caused me to activate the automatic flip in mid air button at low altitude. I thought I destroyed it when it slammed itself on top of my workshop but somehow it came out of it 99.9% intact. The SJ4000 camera fits very nicely in the camera holder. I have taken some impressive video at nearly impossible to see the drone altitudes. Flying times have been under 8 minutes with the SJ4000 camera on board and a slight wind of 5 to 10 MPH at higher altitudes. Gyros have to work harder in gusty conditions. Another tip and I did not see it covered in the instructions. To get the transmitter to talk to the drone 1 – Turn on drone and set on ground. 2 – turn on transmitter 3 – wait for blinking lights to go from rapid blinking to intermittent blinking, 4 – throttle up and then throttle down. You should hear a beep and I believe its ready to go. Oh, and don’t forget to register your aircraft with the FAA.

It's cool. Pretty stable but not for the total novice. Resists minor rough landings and carries a go pro style camera without any problems headless mode is a little bit tricky if you don't program it correctly. I hit the one key return and I came at me like a boomerang. The drawback is the propellers are kinda weird and there are not too many options if you are looking to cut weight and increase flight time. Which is the average of 12 to fifteen minutes.the lights are pretty easy to see from below. Wind speeds it can fly in is under 20 mph and it kills batteries fast. Camera mount it comes with is lightweight and can be bumpy. For 150.00 bucks it makes a perfect entry level quad copter and I would recommend it to people looking to have some fun.

Great value for the price. I bought this for my husband for Christmas and we have both been having a great time flying it. We had a little trouble figuring out how to sync the controller to the drone at first but figured it out (or got lucky) after a few tries. (the instructions for syncing the two are on several different pages, just know that you need to have the Throttle Changing button/levers in the same position, either both up/down etc) The instruction manual was definitely written by a non-English speaking person, the sentences can be somewhat confusing and things are written kind of strange, but after a couple of read throughs you can figure it out. A word to the wise, since the drones propellers are pretty delicate, if you can have someone hold it by the feet with hands and arms clear of the propellers while you adjust the trims, that could help save you a few replacement props. My husband was getting frustrated trying to dial the trim in and was crashing it and grinding the props off. Finally I grabbed it and held it straight out away from me by the feet (gently, really it just rested in the palms of my hands and when we could see which way it was going to go I could grab the feet with my fingers so it wouldn't take off) and had him throttle up and adjust the trims a number of times so it would lift straight up rather than going hard forward/back/right etc. The drone is pretty resilient, he's crashed it a bunch of times pretty hard and it hasn't sustained any major damage and is still working fine. Also, don't put your GoPro on it right away. Practice with it for a couple of weeks before putting an expensive camera on it. We are already having to buy aftermarket propellers and prop guards.Read more ›
