Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Good little Quadcopter, only complaint is the battery wears down way too fast."
_
"The copter arrived with a faulty battery that would not charge."
_
"Hard to follow instructions; does not perform well, does not fly, only crashes, battery gives out after 5 minutes."
_
"Read the reviews and learn from other's mistakes (set the quad flat when plugging in the battery, etc.)"
_
"The only glitch that I've encountered is that it was shipped with a battery charger with European plugs."
_
"My only complaints are that the battery life is short so I just bought 5 replacement batteries and the plastic cover or body is made of very very cheap plastic and will crack after one or two crash."
_
"Good little Quadcopter, only complaint is the battery wears down way too fast."
_
"do yourself a favor and put a piece of tape over the SD card to keep in in place (remember you will crash - and this can pop out the SD card - lost one - learned the lesson)After my initial month of flying two to three batteries a day (buy extra batteries) i have had the pleasure of very stable controlled continuous flight (from binding to battery depleted), Very enjoyable."
_
"I recommend that you buy extra batteries for it."

_
