Reviews around bite (1.54 of 5)

  • Instructions can be a bit more user friendly to get the hang of the controls but it takes practice.
  • Syncing the phone to the drone took a little bit of time, but once done, worked with no problems at all
  • Its tends to drift a bit left and right, but this can be adjusted (each time it starts up).
  • It does struggle a bit in windy conditions, but that just makes it all the better to learn how to control the drone better when the wind is fighting you
  • I'm glad it has guards because he can be a bit reckless with it.

Reviews around user error (1.54 of 5)

  • Originally we got one and it flew away on us - mostly because of user error and not knowing how to use it out of the box
  • The LED’s really look cool for flying at dusk and makes it easy to distinguish the front from the rear and flying at maximum height you can capture great sunset video
  • Not sure if it was user error or with the drone since we did not test all features in the house which was a mistake on our part.
