Top critical review
Cheap, barely works, mostly because it's too light.
on October 10, 2017
It's alright. There's a lot to complain about. I am 100% confident the only reason this is "Amazon's Choice" is because it's so cheap. For $20 I guess it's ok.
I just recently read that it doesn't work outdoors which explains exactly what I saw. I was having trouble getting it to "not spin" and I never figured out how to make it not spin cause the air flow from someone just talking will knock this thing off course. But I was outside and it was 12ft in the air and I got it to stop spinning finally when suddenly it just plummeted to the ground. Probably something to do with the sun.
As I mentioned it's so light you can't use it in the summer in the South, and it's still summer here, trust me. The ceiling fan blew it straight into the wall. It didn't have the power to compete at all with the lowest fan setting. So turned that off and then the AC kicked in and blew it into another wall.
Then it started having issues "hovering" where you wouldn't touch the stick at all and it would rise and fall and sometimes rise VERY quickly making "small adjustments" meaningless when it adjusts itself all on its own with no rhyme or reason to it.
I figured it was the battery so I charged it for 3 hours and nope, same thing. This eventually lead it into sky rocketing into the ceiling where the blades finally bit it. I barely got 15 minutes of flight time before the possessed thing killed itself. So I guess buy some extra blades, or don't buy it at all.
There's absolutely no way I can show this to my niece and expect her to be able to fly it. So I'll get her a different model that doesn't crash so easily when someone sneezes.
