The camera is a fairly decent little camera although I upgraded the MicroSD card fairly quickly, the 1gig card fills up pretty quick. I use a USB cable to copy the video files to my computer instead of taking the SD out every time I'm sure taking the card in and out so much will wear it out fairly quick.
The remote is great, it feels comfortable in hand and has digital trim settings and a digital readout showing throttle setting, remote battery life, trim settings, camera settings, etc, it also has the 360 inversion button you can tap to make the quad do flips, be sure to have some altitude before doing this a be ready to hit the throttle again to keep the quad from hitting the ground, you can also use the top left button for this, press it and when it starts beeping you can tap you rudder controls up, down, left, or right ta make it flip in the direction you like, this is a little more fun than just the 360 inversion.
Other than that there is not much more I can say about this Quad other than I love it, I do plan on building my own quad in the future and this is giving me some great training on the physics of a quad and how to fly one.
Let me add that some proper care an manteinence of your LiPO batteries will make them last long, There are many videos on Youtube on proper care of your batteries but here are some tips.
* Your batteries will come from the factory charged, but not fully, Charge them fully before flying.
* Do not run your battery down all the way, leave about 20% power in the battery, you can purchase voltage alarms that will buzz at a specified
* after flying wait about 15 minutes for battery to cool down before re-charging.
* when putting batteries up for storage do not fully charge them, charge them about 80%.
Packaged very well, read instructions (couple of times because English version a bit cryptic, but decipherable). Charged the flight battery supplied ... always takes about an hour to green light on charger. (I've since ordered two additional flight batteries.) Plugged in 4 AAA's (not supplied) to controller and did initial flight testing on our billiard table. The user docs states the rear left black rotor should turn clockwise, and rear right black rotor anticlockwise. Physical rotation is just the opposite to balance the front white rotors (left clockwise, right anticlockwise). So ignored the doc on this issue.
Came with four spare rotors, one for each location, charger, and USB cable for camera.
Time of use is ten plus minutes depending if you leave the five led lights on (top right button on controller flips them on/off). The undercarriage blue lights in front and red in back are always on. Number of photos or how much video you take also makes a small difference. Ten minutes of full concentration on my part is enough. I'm over 60 by the way. (A 12 year old would already be an expert.)
In order to fly well, the unit must be above it's backwash, I found that to be at least three feet off ground level. The controller screen has a bit of information on it, which is not well described in the manual, but is easy to figure out. Lights, photo, camera, indicators.
The REALLY GOOD. Little thing is well designed and constructed. I've crashed it a dozen times or so, hard landings on floors, roadways, parking lots, and trees. Even have a great video of flying it into a tree 20 feet up, cutting the rotor power, and watching it fall into some waste high bushes. No damage except to my ego. I've even tried a couple of times to chop off my fingers, the rotors just stop, and the design compensates to insure no damage is done to the rotors or blades or fingers. Trying hard not to do anymore self testing on this issue.
I've been using mode 1 for beginners. A mode 1/2 I would find useful. Mode 2 for experts I'm not even planning to try. The controls are really sensitive, and you need to anticipate the power, flight, etc. If you are keeping the unit in the same location off the ground it will tend to continue to rise until you begin to panic and reduce power. If you fly the unit, it will need more rotor power to not loose altitude.
Sensitivity to wind is real. So I've given up trying to even fly if there is anything more than a light breeze. After all, the unit weighs less than the birds I've scared out of their trees a couple of times.
The pictures and video are surprisingly good. Pictures are 1280x960 or 550KB files. The pictures and video require a steady flight, something I'm working hard to yet achieve. The video of my flight into the tree is actually a bit too clear. I've included a picture I was finally able to get of the front of our house that is actually in focus. For the price, this is a great purchase.
