Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"It doesn't do well in high wind (which was anticipated) the batteries charge very quickly and last quite a while compared to the charging time."
_
"I normally don't write reviews on things I get from here usually just read them but this I have to say is the most coolest thing I have bought from Amazon, although the camera isn't HD it's still pretty cool to fly around, This is my 2nd drone (my first one meessed up from Zuzo) but this Syma is honestly the best bright LED lights also, I plan on getting the X8C next but for my fist time flying a drone this X5C at that totally worth it and best for learning as far as the altitude I'm not to sure but it does go pretty darn high and for the battery life it's about 7-8 mins but the Holy Stone 3.7v 650mAh batteries last longer and the charge time is about an hour with them, so all in all 5stars worth buying for your first drone! "
_
"Big Time broken English which is confusing when you're trying to learn ..One of the batteries is extremely difficult to push into the unit if flies decent and it's a lot of bang for the buck also very durable - would definitely recommend and there are plenty of self help videos I suggest on YouTube"
