I purchased this drone within a few hours of purchasing my first ever, propel atom 1. 0 microdrone, because i realized that the propel’s 7-9 minute flight time wasn’t going to be enough for me. I was going to simply add this bigger, more expensive drone to my new collection. 00), it really is a great learner drone. The propeller guards are helpful, it’s moderately stable, pretty fast, and although i don’t care much about its low-quality camera/video capabilities, it was fun to show people sometimes. I would rate this a 75%, but amazon doesn’t allow that. It’s either 60% or 80% — not a lot of wiggle room there. So, i chose 80% because it’s closer to 75% than 60%. I think this is worth buying if you’re just getting into drones and want something that can be crashed 30-50 times without worrying too much about losing tons of money. To the people complaining about the flight times — i do agree. Since this item comes with two batteries, i think its overall flight times can usually hover around 14 or so minutes with actual, active flying. On one battery — 6 to 8 minutes if you fully charge the battery for 1.
Not a 25 minute battery time more like 5.
Lost the first one – went up so high that i couldn’t control it – it came down (i assume lol) somewhere miles away. Had to buy another one because the first was a gift.
Worked perfectly well including the camera. Only problem was one of the led strips didn’t work, i had to splice it and fix it myself but that was no problem.
