- ONE-KEY RETURN: With built-in positioning system, the drone can auto locate the remote control, just press the one key return button, the drone will fly back to the remote control's location.
- 360° ROLL-OVER: The simple flying of WSAD is to boring, and the new 3D rolling special effects surprise all the people.
- COMPASS MODE: The drone will change its flight direction with the change of the direction of remote control.
- STEPS TO MATCH CODE: 1. Turn on the quadcopter then turn on the controller; 2. Push the throttle(left lever) to the top , and then pull it down; 3. When you hear a "Beep", which means the connection was set up successfully, and then you can start to fly your drone.

Commen Problem and The Solution:
1. Quadcopter lost connection to controller: Pull two function lever to bottom left for 3 seconds, then pull two function lever to bottom right for 3 second. Then try to mach code again(Follow Bullet points 4 );
2. Quadcopter can't lift up: Check the propeller to make sure it was installed correctly(diagonal propellers must be the same direction );
3. Motor not spin: Check the motor to see if anything stuck the motor(hair, string, etc)
UPGRADE TO FPV Function
UPGRADE TO FPV QUADCOPTER: This quadcopter can be upgraded to mini FPV racing quadcopter with a 5.8G FPV camera modual,then you can start to enjoy the real-time transmission with a FPV goggles.
360° ROLL-OVER Function
360° ROLL-OVER: The simple flying of WSAD is to boring, and the new 3D rolling makes it possible for excellent performance of flips and rolls by simple push of the button.
COMPASS MODE: The drone will change its flight direction with the change of the direction of remote control, which brings much more confidence for the beginners.
LED LIGHTS: The colorful LED lights make it easy to identify the front and back so as to make the drone a great night flyer.

1. Straight out of the box the quad had a very strong drift forward that required 6 or 7 backwards trim clicks to correct. By recalibrating it with a slight uphill tilt the drift went away without the need for trimming.
2. With the stock 4 blade props I got 5 min. 55 sec of hover time. After removing 2 blades from each prop with an Exacto knife I got 7 min 18 sec hover time - a 23% improvement. I did not notice any negative impact on the flight characteristics.
3. The stiff springs on the tiny controller together with the short joysticks make it hard to control the quad precisely. I cut two 5/8 inch lengths of 1/2 inch inner diameter vinyl tube and gently pressed them about 1/8 inch onto the ends of the sticks. These home-made stick extensions helped improve the control.
The drone itself is super light -- around 24g w/ battery -- and very small (65mm "wheelbase" [diagonal motor shaft-to-shaft length]). The ducted propeller design help protect the drone and also anything it might fly into. When I first started, I bounced it plenty of times off the ceiling, carpet, hard floor, and myself, with no injury or damage. It's a tough little guy! Just don't fly it around anything that can be easily knocked over and broken.
The 1S 150mAh Lipo battery provides about 4-6 minutes of flight time, and takes 30-45 minutes to charge with the included charger. The drone's LED's will start a slow blink when the battery gets low, but you can feel the power start to slide before that (i.e. having to keep increasing the throttle to get it to hold at an altitude).
The instruction pamphlet is quite terrible (even downright inaccurate), however, so here are the important points for anyone starting out with this drone and reading this review:
1. To start with, plug in the battery to the drone. The LEDs on the drone will start flashing ("bind mode"). Move your throttle (left stick) to the bottom position, turn on the controller, then move the throttle up all the way to the top and then all the way back down to the bottom. You should hear a beep, and drone's LEDs should hold steady. The drone is now bound to your controller and will respond to your inputs.
2. If the drone is drifting consistently in one direction when you're trying to hover, you can try calibrating its gyros. Throttle down, place the drone on a LEVEL surface, then hold the right stick in the lower left (7-8 o'clock) position for a few seconds. The drone LED's should flicker rapidly and then hold steady. Release the left stick. You've now oriented the drone to what it should consider level. (If you do this procedure while the drone is crooked or upside down [heh], you'll get some "exciting" flight behavior ;).
3. Left front bumper toggles the "rate" -- basically the sensitivity setting. Low rate (default) is good when starting out or when indoors. High rate makes it more responsive/aggressive to your inputs.
4. Right front bumper is "flip" mode. Press the right front bumper, then move the right stick in the direction you wish the drone to flip or roll.
5. The smaller buttons are for trim (minor drift adjustment), headless mode, and return home (just flies backwards, without stopping), none of which I use and so I won't cover here (also, I don't remember exactly which is which anymore :)
The controller itself is...serviceable, but not great. Probably not even good. Just usable. People with larger hands may find it rather "fiddly" to work with (it's very small) and the control sticks are too stiff to really perform fine adjustments easily. If you're a DIY'er, there are instructions out there on how to extend the control stick length, to make it a bit easier to control. Or, if you have the cash, and already have a hobby-grade controller (like a Taranis X9D+) that supports JR modules, there are a couple of multiprotocol JR modules (available on Amazon, even) that let you bind your controller to this drone (many videos on YouTube on how to do this).
The drone itself is quite moddable, too, considering it's an off-the-shelf toy. People have already mentioned cutting off two blades from each propeller to increase flight time (every gram counts!), and I've seen others successfully modify it to accept larger 1S batteries (like 200-230mAh batteries), replace with better motors, or mount a camera for first person flying. If you have any crafting/soldering skills, it looks like you can have some extra fun with this, beyond just flying it around as-is.
All in all, it's a great starter or indoor drone!
I think my favorite thing about this drone is that the blades are completely encircled so crashing does not damage the blades (there are also replacement blades). This is my only drone that I will fly inside. It is small enough that it won't really damage anything but you can control it well enough to walk around with it inside.
I have flown this outside as well and it does great if there is no wind.
I think this is probably a good training wheel drone. You can learn the concepts on this without ruining a more expensive drone. Once you master flying this, you should be an ace with other drones.
there are a few things you can do to improve the design a bit as well. So far I've removed the shell from the top, cut two blades off of each prop, and cut out the outermost section of the ducts (this was recent and I haven't tested it yet with the ducts trimmed) as well as shaving off any needless plastic on the under side around the battery cage. I've easily seen around a 25-30% increase in flight time. aside from being a fun little tinker project, this thing is tough as nails. I've slammed it into the ceiling, a bookshelf, my cat (she batted at it) and even accidentally landed the thing in a bowl of water. Still works like new! the great thing about this little toy is you aren't losing too much if it breaks!
Final note, its a good idea to modify the transmitter sticks to make them a bit longer. The thumb toggles are a little too short for fine control.
