The wl toys v959 future battleship quadcopter is the perfect machine for those curious about quadcopters. Designed with simplicity in mind, it is light weight and its flight characteristics benefit from this design feature. Constructed of durable elastic materials and graphite booms the light weight enhances the crafts power to weight ratio. The 4 rotors are driven by 4 motors protected in plastic housings. The rotors are also gear driven which relieves the stress on the motors. The wl toys v959 handles exceptionally well. With the help of an on board gyro and adjustable control sensitivity, the v959 is perfect for pilots of different skill level and ages. The v959 is agile, and it has the ability to do flips and tricks. With the push of a button on the transmitter the aircraft will enter trick mode allowing the pilot to perform flips and rolls. The v959 also features led lights that helps the pilot recognize the orientation of the helicopter and aids the pilot in low light situations. One very special feature of this v959 is the mounted spy camera on the bottom of the craft. Its adjustable lens angle allows it to be more flexible in capturing shots. The wl toys v959 transmitter features a 2.4ghz radio system. This means you don't have to worry about signal interference and you have the ability to fly many of these at one time.

The vid and pic quality is not bad. Either pics or vids can be initiated from the remote control - pics from the top lower right hand button and vids from the button on the back left of the controller. Pressing either one causes the word 'function' to temporarily appear on the transmitter display. This can be confusing - the manual is not clear on how to operate the camera. One button press starts the vid cam, a second button press ends the vid. The cam has a led on the bottom that is green when it is ready, and blinks red when the cam is in use.
The 'copter is fairly stable. Inside, you need a fairly large room to fly it in, or you will break it when you crash into things. Outside, the more windy it gets, the harder it is to fly. I am a beginner at flying 'copters, my only previous experience being with a syma 107 IR indoor 'copter which is quite sturdy and resilient when it comes to crashing into things. Crashing this quad 'copter in the same way I have done with my little syma would break it pretty quickly. However, you can fly this quad 'copter outdoors, in the middle of an open field - and probably figure out how to fly it before you break it.
And even if you fly it and break it, you can have a vid of how that all happened. The cam records on to a removable camera flash card that holds (according to my computer) 1.8 gigs of info. This is more memory than you need for the battery limited flight time of around eight or ten minutes. The 'copter comes with an adapter for the flash card so you can copy your flight files to your computer and view them.
The remote controller sensitivity can be adjusted - this helps beginning fliers keep from creating their own in flight problems.
The remote controller also has a button for switching on / off LEDS on the 'copter - these leds are white on the front of the 'copter and red on the back. This helps with in flight orientation.
Update 6/23/13: This 'copter is a little more sturdy than I gave it credit for - I have had two hard crashes into solid objects and it did not break. Perhaps it being light weight and flexible is what has saved it.
The vid I have attached is one of my earliest flights, it was a calm day with not much wind. I had the controller sensitivity set to 40%. I am a beginning flier and I have a tendency to peg the controls instead of flying smoothly. At this point I am just happy to be able to take off and land the thing without breaking it...
