    Good controls for a Toy Drone

    Bought this drone for my son expecting minimal results. The minute he got it going, he was able to handle it with ease. He can keep it from hitting walls and falling into or bumping into other objects. He has fun using this drone. This toy does crazy flips and the build quality is fair. The only down side is the battery and lack of extras. Batteries charge for about 30-45 minutes (less time than the manual says), but only last 5-10 minutes of play. I've searched online retailers and was able to find extras at a low cost, so this is a good option, as you will invest only about $10 extra. This beats having a remote controlled car. Your child will have fun, and so will you.

    Good until it gets lost

    I bought it for my son as a Christmas present, first impression was great, and his first five minutes with the drone was with no problem and very enjoyable. after it ran out of battery, we charged the battery and tried to use it again, as soon as my son turned it on, drone took off in one direction and ascended rapidly and before we know it was out of our site, we tried shutting it down using the remote, and we watched it flow away hopping it will shut down when it got out of range, but it kept going without responding to the remote control until we completely lost the sight.

    I had very little expectations while buying this drone for my son. But after reading the reviews and a markdown for Thanksgiving weekend, I went for it. It arrived quickly and my son has loved it every bit. It’s a little wonder with all the great moves including flips. Very easy to control and my son learned it the very first FIVE minutes. That’s exactly how long the battery runs - the only drawback. Would have been nice to have a little bigger battery or maybe additional battery so as to prolong the fun. But for the price, it’s great.

    Bought this drone to use with my son who's almost 4. Took me 5 min and already pretty good with controlling it. My son can fly it (normally with a crash landing) but he's not even 4.. great beginner drone. Great indoor drone.. Durability is good. This thing has crashed a dozen times,and hasn't broke anything. Only reason I give 4 starts instead of 5 is because I didn't get the spare propellers that were supposed to be included... And flight time is only like 5 min

    This is an excellent drone especially for a novice like me. It came ready to fly (except AA batteries for the remote controller) and is very, very steady and controllable. I flew it indoors and also tried it outdoors in a light wind. (Hint: Use Hi speed mode outside and it handles fine). It also survived some rough landings with no damages.

    Easy to fly and learn tricks before buying a more expensive one . Charge for one hr and fly it for about 4 minutes so buy two of them so you can fly for 8 minutes. We have crash into the wall and Xmas tree and it still good! You have to clear and remove the hairs or debris that get stuck in the propellers often but that is easy to do (since we have 3 girls and two dogs in my house ) it is a good little drone

    Did some research and checked reviews on this one. It looks like it will be a great one to learn with. All of the smaller ones are around 5-7 minutes tops flight time. But this one can be used with an auto mode that should allow inside flights without a bunch of crashes. Protocol seemed to have a fair quality product as well. All that said, I won't know for sure until the kids open it for Christmas.

    Perfect for yard tricks

    On a whim, I got this for my younger brother for his birthday. It took him maybe 10-15 minutes to get used to the drone and had a blast doing cool tricks in our yard. We had a BBQ there and our friends and family were very impressed by the drone! It was a huge hit! For $50, my brother had a blast and this was very entertaining for us to watch!
