- The UDI U818A HD has the Headless/IOC function. Usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction. By using Headless/IOC, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction. This lessens the steepness of the learning curve and allows the pilot to enjoy flight while slowly learning each specific orientation of the quadcopter.

1. Video of key features (4 minutes)
2. Video of product testing (30 seconds)
3. Video taken from the quadcopter camera (20 seconds) (see my YouTube video for the actual look of the footage)
And then I wrap it up with my final conclusions (1 minute). Feel free to fast forward to parts of the video review that interest you most.
For most of the details and tests of this quadcopter, please see my video, but here's a short summary:
pros - relatively easy to learn, decent HD camera quality, can take a beating, includes two rechargeable batteries that able to charge simultaneously, advanced features available (eg. 360 roll), includes microSD card, several main replacement parts
cons - short battery life (6-9 minutes), difficult to navigate in strong wind, remote a bit large (for small hands), instructional manual a bit short
Overall, considering the price of this product, I was very impressed with it. It is very well made and there was much attention paid to the build of it. I'm only a casual user of remote toys, so when I first tried using it in my house, (due to my lack of flying skills, not because of the product) I banged it on walls, ceilings and dropped it from 10-12 feet directly to the floor, where it crashed quite dramatically. Yet surprisingly, it simply bounced here and there and kept going. It is extremely light and thin, but made to be very durable.
Although it can be flown within just a few minutes of learning the controls, it can be entertaining for weeks and months as there are a number of advanced features and maneuvers, which I'm looking forward to trying. If you're a beginner, this is an ideal quadcopter to start with. For more details, please see the video. And I uploaded this entire video review on YouTube and so you can also see how the original HD video quality looks.
The video is grainy and the motors are fairly loud in video, but for the price I can't complain. I have attached a picture taken from the UDI camera in flight as an example of the quality.
The battery life for me has been averaging 8-12 minutes per battery depending on flight conditions. The UDI comes with two batteries and a battery charger that will charge two batteries at once. The included charger will charge both batteries in approximately 90-120.
Overall I would easily recommend this to anyone for a beginner drone/quad-copter.
Add to the easy flight capability the fact that you can take pictures and video is incredible at this price! The video looks great and is easy to transfer to a computer by ejecting the SD card which comes with it.
We flew the UDI U818A with my friend's Phantom and while it is not quite in the same class as THAT quad, it certainly feels closer to it than ones at a lower price point.
Get spare batteries. Two came with this package and I ordered two more. That seems like a good number to have a decent amount of flying in one session.
BEST MODS: adjust your antennas on both controller and copter straight up(or replace with BETTER antennas), remove the hoop shroud after you are comfortable with the copters flying. ALWAYS do the calibration with EVERY FLIGHT(its easy).
I have crashed and crashed this thing so many times !! Still Works Great !!
I am Totally Amazed How Well This Thing Works For $55.00 !
I could NOT Get the Return Home feature to work till I found this on youtube!
Now This Feature Works Great !
The Return Home button feature will ONLY work if the quadcopter is in Headless Mode!
And the drone is within the range with the transmitter, the user will need to stay from the launch point.
To automatically bring home the quadcopter home, press and HOLD the Return Home button! Until the quadcopter has returned!
If the Return Home button is simply pressed and released.
The Return Home function will not work. There is a possibility that the quadcopter will continue on its course or may fly away in a different location.'
