Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Few of the negatives:1) Nothing but friction holds the battery in place."
_
"Seems like a major oversight, and can be a bit of a pain to unplug the battery to turn it off, or if you plug in the battery before turning on the remote, since the remote needs to be turned on before power to the craft is made.3) The USB connector on the charger is upside-down."
_
"The only damage was a bent blade, which I was able to straighten, and the battery popped out,,."
_
"Flies for about 10-15 minutes on one battery and takes nice (not spectacular, but better than most) videos and photos."
_
"I just put a piece of adhesive tape to secure the battery which solved the problem."
_
"The only problem I have in this chopper is the battery always falls down from the slot after a few landings."
_
"It's great that it came with an extra battery."
_
"Love it battery sucks !"
_
"Looks really good, easy to fly, extra batteries, pretty quick charge time, easy ways to charge, extra parts, lots of stuff to buy for it..."
_
"Pros: easy to get started out of the box smooth lift off and landings LED lights on the bottom look really nice at nightCons: propellers lock up and overheat battery slides out of the battery compartment (nothing to lock it securely in place) lateral movements takes practice short battery life"
_
"You put in the batteries and it's pretty much ready for flight right out of the box."

Camera

Camera:
"I didn't want someone to tell me I had crashed the quadcopter and broke the camera."
_
"SD card and camera do not work well."
_
"Without being able to control the quadcopter effectively, I was unable to test the camera in flight."
_
"Also the camera was terrible, the card that held the memory only had 2 gigabytes of storage which didn't hold much video."
_
"Camera isn't the best but for the money it's not bad."
_
"This is a very good quadcopter and for so little a price the camera works great and it's defidently worth the money only thing is you can only fly it for at most 10 minutes but it comes with two batteries! "
_
"Great first Quadcopter for starters, with a camera that is not too shabby!"
_
"I would I gave it 5 stars if it wasn't for a broke camera."
_
"Well guess what the camera would record sound but not video."
_
"The camera is decent but for $90 you're not going to ever get anything super high quality."

Charging

Charging:
"I plug this into my laptop, and I can't see the charging lights because they're pointed down.4) The instructions are completely horrible."
_
"The charger is a bit flaky on one connection."
_
"I either misread the charging instructions ( 6 times ) or they are incorrect."
_
"The instructions say the light goes off when they are charged,, this is incorrect, the lights are off while charging and light up when they are charged."
_
"*Not too big of an issue, but the charging system is somewhat confusing."
_
"Looks really good, easy to fly, extra batteries, pretty quick charge time, easy ways to charge, extra parts, lots of stuff to buy for it..."
_
"The USB charger is very convenient with being able to charge two batteries at once."
_
"At first i didnt think my USB charger was working, but i left it plugged in for about 10-20 minutes before the light lit up on the USB charger, so i think i'm good there."

Control

Control:
"It is so durable that if I am losing control or am confused about which way I'm supposed to move the controller to get it back to me (this can happen when the craft is far away and you can't really tell which side is the front of the craft) I just let it fall from the sky and go pick it up wherever it lands."
_
"A little hard to control at first but you will get the hang of it after a while does cool flips and has cool feature 5 stars"
_
"Without being able to control the quadcopter effectively, I was unable to test the camera in flight."
_
"Having said that, my kids picked this craft up and were able to fly it and control it without any problem."
_
"I've even flown it on days where there was a slight wind blowing around and I was still able to control the craft."
_
"It is so durable that if I am losing control or am confused about which way I'm supposed to move the controller to get it back to me (this can happen when the craft is far away and you can't really tell which side is the front of the craft) I just let it fall from the sky and go pick it up wherever it lands."
_
"So that being said until you get used to the controls and the effects the wind can have, find a nice open space to practice! "
_
"It took about 20 minutes to be able to get decent control."

Flying

Flying:
"Flies great with one problem a small breeze sends off coarse and it can take alot abuse."
_
"I am giving this a two stars, I ordered after reading the reviews and watching some you tube videos, I received batteries charger micro card day early and charged everything before this came, put a full charge battery in it and took it outside to start flying worked fine but was drifting to the left I went to trim it the trim button next to the left joy stick was broke I could not use it at all, what a disappointment I planed on flying this a lot."
_
"Problem with video is that you'll hear the motors as it flies, drowning out any other sound."
_
"Read directions before you fly this it is hard to get lost don't fly on a windy day otherwise it's great for the fun to use"
_
"I certainly would NOT recommend starting in your house if you've never flown before."
_
"It was very easy to fly, once you get the hang of it."
_

_
"This is a very good quadcopter and for so little a price the camera works great and it's defidently worth the money only thing is you can only fly it for at most 10 minutes but it comes with two batteries! "

Video

Video:
"I looked up the problem and several people on Youtube posted videos on motor replacement and where to find the parts, but for the short length of time that I owed and actually had the chance to fly the drone; I felt that a return was in order so I sent it back."
_
"The picture and video quality are decent but not great but hey..it's less than $100...what do you expect?"

_
"Video and picture quality is surprisingly good for such an inexpensive unit."
_
"Up until now I have not cared to see what the photos and video look like but I'm sure I'll get a good laugh when I finally see the video of all of the crashing and see the photos of all of the faces that the craft has flown in front of."
_
"Video was decent and as long as you keep it fairly close to the ground it flies ok."
_
"I'll try to get some decent video up for you to see."

Wind

Wind:
"Even light wind will make controlling its direction a challenge at time.2."
_
"Does NOT work well in wind over 2-3 mph ."
_
"No wind best one out there for the money"
_
"It is very susceptible to being blown around by the wind, and if you get too much altitude, you won't be able to tell which end of the copter is the front, and then navigation becomes really tricky."
_
"I've even flown it on days where there was a slight wind blowing around and I was still able to control the craft."
_
"You really need to be in expert mode to be able to fly into any kind of wind."
_
"It's easy to fly but doesn't handle wind very well."
_
"So that being said until you get used to the controls and the effects the wind can have, find a nice open space to practice! "
_
"It flew great until the wind took it over a building and landed on the ground and some one took it can I used back what I have and get a refund or a replacement please help"
