The drone comes nicely packaged with the drone, battery, charger, and 4 extra props. In a separate box you get the Flypad. Each carton comes with a comprehensive instruction booklet. The drone is very light weight but obviously well made and the foam wings seem to be capable of lasting a long time (replacement foam and plastic pieces are available from Parrot and are pretty reasonably priced if needed) . The Flypad is excellent. It feels very nice in your hands when flying around. It is compact which is awesome since many drones from other companies ship with bulky, chinsey plastic radios. This remote feels natural and has a great finish to maximize comfort. The remotes functions can even be customized through the phone app for a very personalized feel (just know you must be connected to the phone for the custom controls to be in effect as they will revert back if not using a phone in conjunction). The available app also displays battery life, drone status and can be used to fly the drone as well.
I would recommend anyone, experienced drone pilot or newbie, too read the instructions thoroughly and get an idea of the controls because the unique design of this drone makes flying it different in many ways. The drone is very stable and holds altitude extremely well.It is very fast when in plane mode and smoothly glides around. You may use the first few charges to just get a feel for the controls but it should not take long to become comfortable. The battery lasts about as long as expected and charges very fast (less than 30 minutes on most USB sockets). The only thing I wish was different is the battery is a little difficult to remove if you have extra batteries but not impossible. The camera image quality is nice for the size as well and adds a fun element to the experience.
I would recommend this to anyone looking to get into drones or as an additional drone for someone looking to get something a little different than what they currently have.
