Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"I would recommend a couple batteries and a few spare parts when something does go wrong."
_
"Next Once the battery had been charged (may be faulty battery also) he attempted to fly it."
_
"Then the charger was not working properly; it failed to indicate when or if the battery was charging or fully charged."
_
"The batteries charge from dead in about -40 minutes."
_
"The battery was completely dead, and was giving me an error charge."
_
"It has even been crashed into a lake, and we managed to get it out and unplug the battery enough to not cause any damage."
_
"Only issue is battery life, but this quadcopter is a lot of fun and very durable."
_
"Also using the lectron pro 750 mah battery which are great."
_
"great toy, very easy to fly, fun to do flips, go fast, and the battery has great recharge time iv had it for 4 mouths and it finally broke after several hundred crashes and getting another one! "

Blade

Blade:
"I recieved my first one and it was used and didnt work so amazon sent me another and as soon as I opened it I noticed the blades had mud all over them and it was missing the charger and it also didnt work."
_
"The first out to the box had gyro problems and two blades did not turn unless you tilted the model to one side, so I took it back and was given a replacement, after a few short flights, one motorlags behind the rest so it makes it tilt that direction."
_
"Let it fall, you will do the least damage in crashing when you DON'T let the blades crash into stuff while they are spinning."
_
"It came in a open box and the extra blades were missing."
_
"It has had a few spills and crashes but nothing has broken off and I haven't had to use any of the included spare blades (yet)."
_
"Speaking of durability...I lost control and killed the throttle before it crashed into my roof to save the blades from spinning against the roof and damaging the blades."
_
"From a Google search I found 950mAh batteries, blade upgrades and third party motors that are more robust and powerful."
_
"It looks sleek and I instantly noticed versus my past experiences in this hobby, the blades are very sturdy and should be friendly to newcomer pilots."
_
"Far better purchase, can fly on my spektrum platform, and enjoy the quality and product support that Blade products offer! "
_
"They're not really needed because these blades are really robust."
_
"It also doesn't take off from the grass well because the blades get caught in the grass."

Break

Break:
"It is hard to break"
_
"Has broken three times in 2 weeks first an engine blew out and then the remote just losses connection mid flight and then the box says almost impossible to break but I have not none treating it bad and one day I flew it the remote lost connection and it flew into my house and the arm snapped off if it did not break all the time then I would be great but it is junk so don't buy"
_
"I just purchased the ominus I was sold right away when the sales person was banging it against the wall and twisting the arms and told me it was quite hard to break AWESOME I WANT IT I SAID!"
_
"Flys great, breaks within a week."
_
"The amazing thing is how hard it is to break."
_
"It does break in some of the weirdest ways... but it's so fun I've gone as far as taking two broken ones apart, soldering the flight controller from one with a crushed hull into another one with a dead flight controller, and it all ran again."
_
"Now, the thing breaks if you crash it enough but it's also very easy to repair."
_
"Has broken three times in 2 weeks first an engine blew out and then the remote just losses connection mid flight and then the box says almost impossible to break but I have not none treating it bad and one day I flew it the remote lost connection and it flew into my house and the arm snapped off if it did not break all the time then I would be great but it is junk so don't buy"

Charging

Charging:
"I recieved my first one and it was used and didnt work so amazon sent me another and as soon as I opened it I noticed the blades had mud all over them and it was missing the charger and it also didnt work."
_
"Then the charger was not working properly; it failed to indicate when or if the battery was charging or fully charged."
_
"The batteries charge from dead in about -40 minutes."
_
"The battery was completely dead, and was giving me an error charge."
_
"At first I was convinced that flight time would be a big problem - fifteen minutes of flight time with about an hour charge."
_
"-Great flight time: I easily get close to 15 minutes per charge on the stock battery."
_
"It is easy to operate and it doesn't take too long to charge."
_
"Flight time is amazing, about 12 minutes on a charge, for a very small battery."
_
"I have been flying 6-10 battery cycles per day with not one problem although I would recommend a USB charger more heavy duty than a typical iPhone model as they thermally quit after a short time charging...think RS."
_
"Well, almost, but much more so than a cell phone can (even though I have, on occasion, been tempted to give my smart phone a short taste of flight).The Dromida Ominus UAV Quadcopter RTF needs no setup beyond installing the included batteries in the remote control unit and charging the quad's battery for about an hour with the included USB charger module (no USB power supply included but you might be able to use that primitive cell phone charger for something REALLY cool)."

Control

Control:
"I was unable to control it."
_
"After some practice I was able to control the drone but it was frustrating to say the least."
_
"It was fun to fly with lots of versatility but its overly sensitive controls and lightweight build made it hard to control at times."
_
"The gyro often gets confused and wobbles out of control."
_
"The current price of $80 may seem steep, but if you've ever been disappointed by remote control toys in the past, you'll find the extra money well worth the payoff."
_
"After some practice I was able to control the drone but it was frustrating to say the least."
_
"The different flight modes and built in flip controls are very fun and easy to work with."
_
"There are different control modes, the default is Easy - but I feel that Easy actualy makes it harder to fly."
_
"I was simply amazed how well this thing flew, the stability and control are excellent, and even the transmitter feels like a high-quality RC transmitter."
_
"On the other hand, the controls require a light touch and it is very easy for a small movement to turn into a very unwanted disaster."

Controller

Controller:
"It does break in some of the weirdest ways... but it's so fun I've gone as far as taking two broken ones apart, soldering the flight controller from one with a crushed hull into another one with a dead flight controller, and it all ran again."
_
"After just 4 days of getting it on Sunday I flew it as much as I could but to my surprise after charging it 10 flights later I unplugged it and put in in the quad, the controller did not respond to the controller and I cannot find any way how to fix this problem, I will be returning unless it is possible to fix"
_
"First, I did encounter the dead controller issue, but I was able to resolve it by downloading a .pdf from the manufacturer (the calibration instructions someone else posted).PLEASE BE ADVISED WHEN THEY SAY TO PUSH THE CONTROLLER STICK THEY MEAN PUSH IT DOWN -- NOT IN THE DOWNWARD DIRECTION BUT DOWN LIKE YOU ARE PRESSING THE STICK THROUGH THE BACK OF THE CONTROLLER."
_
"Every time you want to reset it you have to unplug the cable from the battery and turn on off the controller, extremely frustrating and a bad product all together."
_
"Then the flight controller must decide that something's wrong, and responsiveness goes way down and it's hard to keep in the air."
_
"Controller feels awesome as well."
_
"Included controller is responsive and easy to use."
_
"Can fly out of sight, be careful with controller rangeOverall I am extremely satisfied, although the motors could be improved greatly."

Crash

Crash:
"great toy, very easy to fly, fun to do flips, go fast, and the battery has great recharge time iv had it for 4 mouths and it finally broke after several hundred crashes and getting another one! "
_
"Really great quad straight out of the box, only complaint is the propellor shafts are very easy to bend if you have a crash, otherwise well worth it"
_
"I love the quad copter and I have crashed it multiple times, but now it is dead."
_
"Let it fall, you will do the least damage in crashing when you DON'T let the blades crash into stuff while they are spinning."
_
"It has had a few spills and crashes but nothing has broken off and I haven't had to use any of the included spare blades (yet)."
_
"Recommend buying driveshaft replacements though as a few crashes will bend them and your blades will be slanted."
_
"It has ben extremely durable through my rough collisions and crashes, as well as the crashes some of my non-flyer friends put it through when I let them fly it."
_
"Very durable i must have crashed it a hundred times racing around the yard."
_
"As a first time rc anything flyer, I've crashed into every piece of furniture in my house, as well as trees, curbs, and pavement without anything more than some superficial scratches on the props."

Flight-time

Flight-time:
"At first I was convinced that flight time would be a big problem - fifteen minutes of flight time with about an hour charge."
_
"Once your craft is airborne the device can stay in flight for around 15 minutes - not the best flight time around but understandable given the relative compact sizing of the battery and craft itself."
_
"-Great flight time: I easily get close to 15 minutes per charge on the stock battery."
_
"This is my first quadcopter and after logging a couple of hours of flight time with it I am very confident in flying it around."
_
"Easy to fly, durable, fun and the flight time is about 15 min."
_
"Flight time is amazing, about 12 minutes on a charge, for a very small battery."
_
"The long flight time is especially impressive."

Flying

Flying:
"If you have flown anything on the market besides this you will think it flies horrible."
_
"I've been using it semi-regularly for about 9 months and am still on all the original parts, although I did manage to give on of the legs a good fracture, but a little tape solved that problem and it still flies very well."
_
"Those are super hard to fly when compared to this."
_
"Would not recommend flying it in wind unless you have pretty decent experience as it likes to flop around a bit."
_
"), VERY fast, kind of hard for a newbie like me to fly, but I don't care....it has a good 10 minutes flying time (which is high for the cheaper quads), and with an extra battery, which I highly recommend, you can fly for quite a while."
_
"Very easy to lean to fly."
_
"The LED lights are bright and make it easy to fly at night."
_
"This flies great and is super durable."
_
"I do recommend you read how to fly it first in case you think the control work in the opposite way and fly it into a ceiling fan...."
_
"It's pretty durable considering the first time it was used it was flown into a ceiling fan a couple times as well as a few walls."

_
"After 3 days one of the arms broke where the motor attaches."
_
"The broken motor cover will work fine on a arm that's not damaged."
_

_
"I just used a good motor cover off one of the good arms and swapped it with the broken one."

Price

Price:
"Then I got an e-mail from them stating they would do this if I send them $50.I don't know what the failure rate is with these drones, but I decided not to throw good money after bad."
_
"Price is reasonable, parts are relatively cheap and this thing can take DAMAGE!"
_
"The parts for it are super cheap, after replacing the motor, the body (which was my fault), and replacing a propeller, this thing is back up in no time."
_
"I've spent over $400 on high-end RC helicopters in the past, all of which broke after some time wasting all my money (not even from crashes but the boards went bad for no reason)."
_
"i don't recommend these quads to the normal person unless they have money to buy another one after the first one is too broken to fly."
_
"I have already managed to bend a prop shaft, which is annoying, but parts are cheap, and i am replacing them with the traxxas alias shafts and props."

Propeller

Propeller:
"Really great quad straight out of the box, only complaint is the propellor shafts are very easy to bend if you have a crash, otherwise well worth it"
_
"The parts for it are super cheap, after replacing the motor, the body (which was my fault), and replacing a propeller, this thing is back up in no time."

Remote

Remote:
"The biggest problem is the synching of the radio signals between the remote and the unit."
_
"The current price of $80 may seem steep, but if you've ever been disappointed by remote control toys in the past, you'll find the extra money well worth the payoff."
_
" The Ominus quadcopter works - it is way easier to fly than those darn remote control helicopters."
_
"I love the remote control, using 2.4GHz was brilliant."
_
"There is a fun button on the remote control - Flip."
_
"The first thing to know is that the remote defaults to 'easy mode', which doesn't just mean the leveling is more automated, but means that the controls are much less sensitive."
_
"If you have ever held a video game controller with its dual thumb sticks for control, you will feel comfortable holding the remote for the Ominus."

Size

Size:
"As I have found with these small quads, they do not fly well in windy conditions."
_
"I received my motor 2 days ago, and have been flying ever since, the motors are a little weak for aerial maneuvers, flips seem a little hard in a small space, but outside there isn't a problem."
_
"It's bigger size allows it to handle the wind easier."
_
"On the other hand, the controls require a light touch and it is very easy for a small movement to turn into a very unwanted disaster."
_
"However, I was able to bring it back from a small silhouette in the distance to right over my head."
_
"Flight time is amazing, about 12 minutes on a charge, for a very small battery."

Speed

Speed:
"Whatever, it was a fast way to lose $80.So buyer beware, if you get a drone (at least this one), and it takes off on its own into the Bermuda Triangle, don't expect any support from Hobbico."
_
"Packaging was great and delivery was fast but very disappointed, only 3 of the 4 motors work."
_
"It's so fast I wouldn't recommend it for beginners."
_
"The motors are very weak to power the big floppy props, speed and acceleration are a fraction of the Alias."
_
"I cringed the first few times I hit pavement at full speed, blades first, but other than being a bit dirty this thing is still in perfect condition."
_
"They spin very fast and are sharp enough to cause damage to your eyes if you're not careful."
_
"Packaging was great and delivery was fast but very disappointed, only 3 of the 4 motors work."
_
"I have this one it's nice easy to fly for any age and it's fast the only thing I don't like is the motors brun up fast I replaced every one once already but I love it it's fun and keep me feeling like a kid "
_
"Great fun, but the motors die real fast."
_
"great toy, very easy to fly, fun to do flips, go fast, and the battery has great recharge time iv had it for 4 mouths and it finally broke after several hundred crashes and getting another one! "

Tree

Tree:
"It was stuck in the tree branches but still it shouldn't broken so easy."
_
"But even if you do crash, the Dromida is pretty tough and doesn't seem easy to damage even when hitting a tree or landing hard on concrete."
_
"Loved it out of the box but now I hate it because it doesn't have enough power to get out of a tree."
_
"As a first time rc anything flyer, I've crashed into every piece of furniture in my house, as well as trees, curbs, and pavement without anything more than some superficial scratches on the props."
_
"I have taken it out of 2 trees so far and it bounces back perfect."
_
"It was stuck in the tree branches but still it shouldn't broken so easy."
_
"As it fell out of the tree I floored the throttle and to my suprise it flew perfectly from the drop and whizzed of like nothing happened."
_
"He has had it for over 5 months and hasn't broken a thing after smashing it in to walls, trees, roofs,and even the occasional car or two."

Wind

Wind:
"Very light, so wind will make flight a bit challenging."
_
"Would not recommend flying it in wind unless you have pretty decent experience as it likes to flop around a bit."
_
"And it is hard to fly in the wind, although not impossible."
_
"UPDATE: Beware of wind!"
_
"I was able to get it about 100 feet in the air and a few houses over and still have control, though the wind made it difficult, I still was able to pilot it back to my house."
_
"Way more fun outside but the wind does hit this drone hard."
_
"It flies well in a wind and the flip button and varied directions make it fun."
_
"Bought this thinking it was going to be a great outdoor flying Quad, but it flails on the wind like a piece of paper with little control, the controls are extremely touchy even in novice mode, and when attempting to fly further than 20 yards it just slows it's throttle to almost zero and drops from the sky."
_
"It's bigger size allows it to handle the wind easier."
