_
"Battery life is not the best but close to it."
_
"The battery is only good for about 10 minutes so order an extra battery or two."

Camera

Camera:
"The only problem is that the button for the camera is actually one of the trim buttons which is sort of hard to hit when you're not looking at it."
_
"_________________OVERALL IMPRESSIONThe camera does not give the best footage I've ever seen, but it is usable footage."
_
"It finally fell to the ground in the latest windstorm and, although the battery was unrecoverable and the hatch with camera is still missing, I popped a new battery in it and it took right off."
_
"The controller was inferior compared to that supplied with the UDI drone, with no easy way to tell if the camera was on aside from picking up the drone and looking for the light."
_
"One thing that is missing is a camera lens cap to protect the onboard camera lens from dust, dirt and grass kicked up during rough landings when learning rather than recording."
_
"Camera takes pretty good video just hard to see what you are pointing at because no FPV."
_
"It's not a Phantom, from what I hear since I don't own one, but it's a rugged, easy to fly drone with a decent camera."
_
"The camera is decent."
_
"The camera developed a problem, I corresponded with the very friendly customer service people by email, and once they could tell that the camera problems were not pilot error they sent a new camera immediately."
