Control

Control:
"Hard to control, very small copter, 2 motors broke after ONE flight without any crashes."
_
"Well, the remote control is extremely flimsy and it only took one light drop for it to go completely bad."
_
"This drone is very hard to control and not a good idea for people who are not experienced at flying them."
_
"Despite the various settings, this is very hard to control."
_
"Extremely responsive controls and the price is hard to beat."
_
"I have never flown one before, and after 10 or 15 flights I was able to control it really well."
_
"The control is excellent for both indoor and outdoor flying."
_
"The cage is good, but even though having a cage over the top of the propellers may take away from the lift and control a little, it would be nice to have a full cage or even a detachable top cage as well for beginners like myself."
_
"Took about 30 seconds to get complete control and never have any problems with it."
_
"Very simple and easy to fly once you master the controls."

Crash

Crash:
"It still worked great after, and the next prop broke from a crash in which it still got up and worked like a champ after popping on a new prop."
_
"Hard to control, very small copter, 2 motors broke after ONE flight without any crashes."
_
"(It can be frustrating for beginner, but it you don't mind crashing often then it works really well)-Fine tuning does not work very well, I fine tuned then moments later I had to refine tune."
_
"Unfortunately, my son flew it too high in the sky and it crashed and broke."
_
"The first time I flew it the drone crashed very hard and the frame that protects it broke."
_
"If any one of the four fails in any way, even partially, the unit crashes instantly."
_
"The crash cage that comes with the quadcopter is also great for protecting it from falls, smashes, bumps, and walls (which as a new user you will encounter them all), and I haven't had any problem mechanically with the copter."
_
"After many crashes, it did not suffer any damage."
_
"It still worked great after, and the next prop broke from a crash in which it still got up and worked like a champ after popping on a new prop."
_
"I have had more fun with this product making videos of crashes and flying on my breaks at work."
_
"This is very durable as i may have crashed into a tree once or twice but it kept on flying and had a great strong hold and that was without the cage."
