Camera

Camera:

Charging

Charging:
"Charger broke in my hands upon the first use."
_
"had a few small problems: 1. original battery not taking a charge 2. when the camera records, a thin black line runs horizontally through the playback."

"I had a small problem with the batteries and charger that came with the copter but Holy Stone quickly sent me a better charger and two batteries."
_
"I dropped it down a star because the charging cable that came with it has a problem."

_
"I don't know if the problem rests in the battery packs, the charging circuit, or in the copter itself, but somehow the system is not performing like it did out of the box."

"this is a very easy quadcoper to fly, recommend you orders the 5-battery charge station and upgraded batteries at the same time."
_
"ie=UTF8&psc=1 The charger is great but one battery was defected and the moment I plug it to the Quad, the propellors of the quad would start even if the switch was off."
_
"As suggested by others, getting an extra set of batteries like the Holy Stone 5-in-1 Battery Charge was just enough time to be satisfied."
_
"He loves the extra battery that can be charging while he is using the other one."
