Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"The battery was hard to get in and out, and the last time I went to take it out the black wire came off the circuit board rendering it useless."
_
"The quad will drop and if it is nearing the end of the battery won't be able to recover."
_
"Had a problem with one of the included batteries and they replaced it without question or delay."
_
"the customer service is fantastic they're sending me two batteries to fix my problem that's awesome."
_
"the quad is fun to fly the pictures are pretty good and so is the video only one problem when writing to customer service about the short flight time the only thing that could suggest was to get a bigger battery not very happy with that answer that's like saying by a different helicopter."
_
"The plastic for the battery cover is a bit flimsy and cracked."
_
"Nice for not having the battery fall out and the on and off switch is just convenient-Nice LEDs, let you fly at night, maintain orientation, blink when it is time to bring the quad in for a landing-Excellent customer support."
_
"You also need to educate and learn about Li-Po batteries, they are great batteries but at the same time you need to be very careful around them and never leave them charging unattended."
_
"the customer service is fantastic they're sending me two batteries to fix my problem that's awesome."
_
"For the money you can't go wrong, you get a super stable quad that is a nice size, it comes with 2 batteries, a 720P camera some cool lights that you can turn on from the remote."

Camera

Camera:
"shouldnt have damaged camera if thats why they arent playable."

_
"PROs-Durable, suggest installing propguards until you get comfortable with flying the quad-Easy to fly, not too fast, variable pitch angles allow user to grow with the quad-Camera takes pictures and video, needs to have no wind and be in a good hover for a nice camera shot or video."
_
"Ive found the Holy Stone RC Drone with HD Camera, 4CH 2.4GHz 6-Gyro to be a fun piece of equipment."
_
"The 720p camera is very nice."
_
"This has a decent camera for a toy quad and you can practice getting shots very easily."
_
"It flies super steady and it has a long range, the only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because i can't open the pictures and videos on my MAC, it says that the files are corrupted but to be honest I don't care too much about the camera, i just wanted to have fun and learn how to fly a quadcopter."
_
"To start...I got this drone expecting a nice hd camera as listed in the title."

Control

Control:
"Flew a few feet, and it flew into a tree on its own, don't know what went wrong with the controls?"
_
"I tried adjusting with the control but was unable to fight it."
_
"The wind has to be 5mph or lower because it is hard to control other wise."
_
"The controls are a little hard to get use to at first but after you fly it a few times it is really easy to maneuver."
_
"You have to turn the quad facing you (blue led toward you), press the Right Arrow on the Left D-Pad and it will beep and the quad will attempt to come back to wherever the REMOTE control is."
_
"It's very easy to control, and will hover still for the most part, maybe little control here and there."
_
"Quick and easy to assemble but I wasnt able to control the drone after I started the rotors."
_
"Controls are very responsive and it is easy to get the hang of."
_
"The battery is stronger than the other drones I've tried but the flight time is about the same due to the additional weight which is well worth the uncomparable control it provides as described above."
_
"This is the second drone I've tried from this price range and it's beyond comparison easier to control."

_
"The RC Drone flies great even with a slight breeze."
_
"I watched video of a guy flying one outside and he managed to do pretty well but it still wasn't an entirely smooth flight and he didn't share his video - the part that tells you how steady the flight was."
_
"Easy to fly."
_
"Flies easily, very sturdy, we really enjoyed this item."
_
"The X5C-1 is much easier to fly and recommend for first time buyers."

_
"I would say that it does not do well in wind at all!"
_
"If they're strong wind (in my case 11 MPH) it will drift and it will fail."
_
"You definitely cannot compare this to something like a DJI Phantom 2.During my play time, I notice no wind is best but when playing outside, you know you will always encounter winds."
_
"Controlling the F181 is easy too, I haven't used it in powerful winds, but in the wind we have here in Southern Cali, it handled great."
_
"Comes with a 2 gig TF card, which is nice to be provided with the quad-2.4 GHz, this quad has a pretty good range but be careful of getting it up too high in the wind."
_
"It is very, very tempting to get this quad up high in a residential area but it is super easy to have the wind take it (it is much greater above the trees and homes than you think) or to have it come down or get stuck 50' up in a tree."
_
"For the price it is a great quad works well in the wind but camera quality is a little crumby but other than that no issues."
