    Hi all. I love this item. I bought 5 batteries at about 10 dollars a piece. Stay away from ebay batteries.. you never know what you are getting most of them are dead and wont recharge. This drone does what it says, it flys and flys,, no way can you loose. It rarely ever broke any thing... If you loose control you hit return land and it does that. Now theres no GPS on it, but it sets down really quickly in case you loose control of it. I have kept it in safe mode and love the blank out of it,, it auto hoovers, it flips, and now they are giving it away for 25 dollars... for pennies on a dollar,, I might buy it again. The batteries are only 5 to 7 minutes,, but with 5 batteries you can have a lot of fun. Remember the key words its not a thousand dollar drone, its a toy drone. But its fun as stuff. Since I live in the desert,, i do get lazy,,well one day I left it in my trunk of my car,,, all 5 batteries expanded,, thus I can not fit them in the drone,... Ok I learned my lesson on batteries... but its still a good toy and 2 of those batteries were bad chargers anyways.. I have paid 99 dollars when they first came out,,so yea this is a good deal. Order another battery from a trusted site,,

    Hard Even For Beginners

    I purchased this so that my son and I could spend some quality time together. I spent more time trying to set it up and fighting a headache with it not connecting to our mobile devices. My son and I both have expensive smart phones. One android and one Apple phone. The device connected just fine with my Apple phone however kept having problems when attempting to connect the second drone to his android. The devices connections we're getting confused with each other's and making the drones flying around all crazy. Once we finally got them to work flying them was very difficult especially even for a beginner. I would not recommend this to anyone trying to purchase something on the go for a quick use as the set up time is ridiculous and you cannot use the drones on their own as they require the use of four small targets that have to be battery powered and set up to use every time you turn on the drones!

    Plenty of fun for the price

    First off, if you're looking for a serious drone this isn't the product for you. This is intended more as a toy than anything and it does a great job at that for the cost. It really easy to get the drone itself flying but setting up the course and app is way more time consuming. You don't need to do any of that in order to enjoy this product, though, so I gave up on that after a few minutes of fighting it and have just been having fun with the youngsters teaching them how to fly it. Anyone I hand the controller to can figure it out in a few minutes. I'd definitely recommend getting an extra battery or two.

    Fun way to get flying for around $20. Once you get it setup it's pretty fun. The app doesn't work properly. You can time your individual laps with the included beacons and free app but none of the co-op or multiplayer functions work correctly. Attempted to connect on numerous devices never worked. Flight time is roughly 7-10 minutes. With the prop guards on you have a more durable aircraft better flying experience with them off. For someone wanting to learn how to fly it's a cheap fun start. If you can get this for $20 it's nice not worth anything near retail due to what is advertised versus what's delivered.

    Good to start with

    No camera, the app is to give you access to the racing features to make sure you cross all the goals, and to have an in-flight laser fight with another drone of the same model. Good start but drone needs to be trimmed by user (tough to do as the drone will float in various directions until you configure the speed of each rotor) Once you get going though it is fast and fun to fly, just a little more setup then get home and excitedly head out to fly, figure on about 30 minutes of configuring

    This sucker is the hardest thing to fly that I've encountered, and I've flown MANY. The "auto landing" feature essentially just drops it out of the sky without warning, which is no way to land in my opinion, and you end up with a yard sale of drone parts for your attempt. This is all assuming you can get the trim right to stop the drifting. Even on sale I regretted buying it so for 80$ I'd say go get a couple of Syma X5C's and drone-joust as opposed to frustrating yourself with this sad disappointment.

    My son thought the drone a cool toy and enjoyed flying it when we got it setup and going. Just as he was starting to get the hang of it, the battery died. Short lived battery life ~5-7 minutes. Glad we got it on sale (less than$30) and for that price I would consider recommending to others

    Horrible drone. This product has way to many issues. Within the first week of having it l had issues. Once of the issues was that it it would not take off or just hover low to the ground. One flight, the drone took off and just kept going; luckily I was able to get it back. Definitely do not recommend it.
