  • We haven't used the camera or video on it but for a starter drone its WONDERFUL
  • It was a perfect starter drone for my 11 yr old grandson

Reviews around toy (4.10 of 5)

  • Super fun toy that goes amazingly high and is very responsive
  • Imagine how disappointed my kids were when I lost the toy the first day we had it; didn't survive dad trials.
  • Not a bad little toy, but it is made in China, so not of the best quality
  • Neat little toy for the kids, but the controls done work very well.
  • Sellers please be reasonable and drop the prices back down for those of us with children, who can't afford a $100+ toy

Reviews around quad (4.01 of 5)

  • This is an excellent deal on an good, cheap, beginners quad-copter.
  • The quad is easy to learn how to fly and takes great pictures
  • Overall, however, great quad, just be careful with the blades.
  • Unfortunately, it also means this quad is very susceptible to any breeze or wind faster than 4 or 5mph.
  • Over all for the money it seems like a great quad to learn on

Reviews around quality (3.97 of 5)

  • It certainly doesn't take great quality photos or video but they're good for a starter.
  • The quality of camera is not terrific, but for the price and the fact that it has a camera is an added feature that other drones at this price do not have.
  • Just bad quality control, which is not acceptable for a drone this price.
  • Very poor camera quality, and the unit is very difficult to maneuver in flight.
  • The Camera is cheap webcam quality, images are over saturated and look cartoon-ish but records video and takes pictures providing some amusement

Reviews around quadcopter (3.75 of 5)

  • It lived up to the hype, as it has decent battery life (15 minutes between the two), it is fairly fast for a cheap quadcopter, and it is insanely durable
  • It is a great quadcopter to learn how to fly and is very durable, have crashed over and over without any problem
  • Honestly I have crashed this quadcopter pretty bad but it keeps going.
  • Since getting this little unit I have purchased a much more expensive 3DR quadcopter and am learning it
  • the quadcopter is great, but the battery life is shorter than advertised

Reviews around thing (3.09 of 5)

  • only thing bad I can say is that the battery dies quickly so you have to charge it alot
  • One thing I really like about this model is that it has a long flying range
  • That's the only bad thing I can say which is why I didn't give it five stars.
  • My son and I have crashed this thing into about everything possible.
  • But the most important thing is its fun - fairly safe - and at a very descent price.

Reviews around plastic (2.08 of 5)

  • Kind of flimsy plastic but probably has to be to keep weight down
  • overall the plastic is EXTREMELY FRAGILE almost like glass.now for the flying

  • It is especially good for beginners to the done world, as it is well-constructed of flexible plastic and hard to break.
  • First, the body and rotor guards are flimsy plastic - but that's OK.
