Reviews around video (4.75 of 5)

  • It is so easy to fly and takes fantastic photos and video.
  • works great and easy to fly. takes awesome video and pics
  • The only thing I can complain about is the ability for the video playing back in your computer once transferred, if you have an older version of player, you will have a choppy video and that was very annoying but all in all, this is drone is fantastic.
  • This is SUCH a cool toy that takes great video and is incredibly easy to fly
  • The photos and videos you take with the drone are of high enough quality that the pictures and be blown up and framed with no pixilation, and the videos can be viewed clearly on a high

Reviews around quality (4.54 of 5)

  • But the mechanism or electronics is bad quality... that I could not find out till i used it
  • This drone is very very easy to fly and is a great quality product
  • It's well built, functions fine, easy to fly and FUN, but you have to work like a dog online hunting through various websites and forums to really learn why some things do not work as you might expect
  • I wished the lesson learned here is that cheap stuff is cheap quality but that is not the case here
  • This is one amazing drone, it is easy to learn and the video and picture quality is amazing.

Reviews around price (4.07 of 5)

  • So you get a very excellent package at a great price, that no one is close to.
  • In my opinion at this time, most any drone any cheaper or similarly priced as this is not a "real" drone, so you can't take as many of the skills with you when you step up
  • Great price for tons of technology packed in a small package
  • Was a great drone for a few days and a great price however; I had to return it because the cam stopped working
  • Very fun for the whole family and not a bad price either!

Reviews around flight (4.06 of 5)

  • The "ominous" took about 10 flights before I stopped crashing it...there was a learning curve because it's so light and the controls so much more sensitive than the Phantom
  • I haven't tested the intelligent flight modes yet but return to home works fine
  • The "ominous" took about 10 flights before I stopped crashing it...there was a learning curve because it's so light and the controls so much more sensitive than the Phantom
  • This error happens at least once every flight but only sometimes results in it flying to the side
  • The first video I used the Quadcopter in was only for the beginning and ending shots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m52kJHrgduw .-The intelligent flight modes are fantastic

Reviews around thing (3.89 of 5)

  • This thing constantly exceeds my expectations at this pricepoint
  • Not a difficult thing to do but not intuitive (I thought the registration with DJI would occur over my cellular data connection)
  • The best thing I have ever purchased, so easy to fly and so responsive.
  • I feel like I could race this thing, maybe not but it does go fast
  • Even though some Judge overturned FAA, its the right thing to do

Reviews around quad (3.59 of 5)

  • It's well built, functions fine, easy to fly and FUN, but you have to work like a dog online hunting through various websites and forums to really learn why some things do not work as you might expect
  • This quad is so easy to fly, you get a ton of options for the money.
  • If you're a beginner and want an unbelievable quad copter, this is the one!
  • Got an up air one first, don't make that mistake, super quad for price!
  • I would highly recommend a beginner buy a cheaper, smaller quad, like a Hubsan X4, and actually learn how to fly before getting into a Phantom.

Reviews around battery (2.24 of 5)

  • Great drone, but now the battery is defective for no reason
  • fast - A dead battery will be ready to fly in a little over an hourReturn to Home -
  • It means that if you let it set for a month the battery is dead!
  • easily connects via cell phone app- decent battery for flying time; obviously for real experience you need to buy extra batteriesNow the other part - manually LANDING this beauty
  • The draw back is that the battery lasts like 15 mins of fly time which is nothing when you are trying to figure out how to drive it, but you can always buy spare batteries.

Reviews around review (2.09 of 5)

  • I don't like writing bad reviews, but for $500, this was the most difficult drone to set up.
  • Setup was very straight forward, thanks to the many helpful review and youtube tutorials
  • Not worth the money at all, read reviews even outside of Amazon to see that there are serious flaws with this Drone.
  • If this review was helpful to you, it is much appreciated if you would [...]

Reviews around motor (1.95 of 5)

  • I had remote issues, motor overload issues, connectivity issues, interference issues and crashed my drone a few weeks ago
  • The 12 month warranty covers any hardware issues that the drone might have (i.e. stress cracks, motor problems, camera/gimbal problems, etc.).Cons:-Range
  • If you are not careful, tiny grains of sand can temporarily disable the motors, or worse
  • I am wondering if that motor is the problem or the props I received?
  • The third flight, the quad began acting a little erractic, then suddenly the motors reveled into a really high pitch by themselves and the quad tried to fly away

Reviews around support (1.87 of 5)

  • Only problem unit was defective Contacted DJI support after waiting on hold….. 45 min then an hour with support resetting IMU multiple times and updating firmware
  • If you have trouble getting in touch with a dealer, or aren’t receiving adequate support, please contact us [email protected] and we will ensure you are taken care of."I wonder if Amazon provides tech support for DJI products?Also, you will need to register with the FAA to legally fly this drone in the USA as it weighs 2.68 Lbs
  • Believe what the other reviews say about the horrible support this company gives for its products.
  • My only complaint is not only the horrible tech support of DJI US
  • I was alarmed enough not to purchase a DJI drone because of the poor support other purchasers have experienced when their drone either malfunctioned or needed repairs.

Reviews around update (1.80 of 5)

  • I couldn't even over-ride it and had to install another risky firmware update before I could get my drone in the sky.3
  • The drone relies on the app and the app has no way to redownload a failed firmware update.
  • ,it's an excellent beginner drone ,captures great footage ,reaches great altitudes and impresses the sh*t out of everyone who sees it
  • It's the same but increased range and better camera.-Still has annoying and risky updates

Reviews around experience (1.80 of 5)

  • Flying a drone has the potential to be a very cool experience.
  • Thank you Yitamotor and Amazon for another awesome buying experience.
  • Just the process of updating the firmware was a frustrating experience, as the instruction manual is worthless, and you spent a half-hour frantically looking for any youtube video that will give you simple and concise instructions on what to do and how to do it.
  • The first person view is a little jumpy and there is a slight delay but not to much that it would ruin your flight experience
  • Poor connectivity from controller to drone (can't ascend more than 250ft without experiencing weak connection)6

Reviews around people (1.61 of 5)

  • These mostly speaking broken English people have responded to me that the wind caused this
  • A few stupid people can ruin a great hobby for the responsible ones.

  • Many people buy this drone and complain about the range
  • I read a lot of the reviews here and it sure looks like people pulled it out of the box, charged it up, and flew it.

Reviews around signal (1.41 of 5)

  • It take amazing quality videos, hardly ever looses remote signal (if it does, comes right back on), takes great pictures, live streaming is great and the controller is wonderful
  • -Drone will fly home when it loses signal or if battery is too
  • I instantly hit the return to home button and lost signal again
  • Hovers on a dime, return home when signal is lost, and returns to home at the push of a button if you loose sight of it
  • The return to home is especially useful in case of loss of signal, tough flying conditions, or just becoming disorientated
