Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

_
"The camera is surprisingly good, although the video seems to be a lot better than the picture (pictures are harder without a live feed, its hard to know whats really in the shot, where as video you kind of pick up everything)."

Charging

Charging:
"Missing three battery and 4in1 battery charger"
_
"I purchases side and I flew with the battery that came in it and it flew fine and the battery recharged okay the other three batteries that came with it or damaged and blew up when trying to charge them also the two extra 600 mil amp of batteries it should of came with it never showed up Plus the charger is a very poor quality I would not be surprised if it's what destroyed the batteries"
_
"Things my husband didn't like, the charger is a POS and failed after 3 uses NO where in the instructions does it warn you about charging them too long."
_
"It was hard to charge all three batteries, only (2) motors would work."
_
"Unit comes with 1 battery, it lasts about 7 minutes and takes about an hour and 15 minutes to recharge, so I recommend purchasing multiple batteries and a rapid charger or multi charger."
_
"The description says it comes with a 4 way charger, which would be great since it takes 90 minutes to charge for a 6 minute flight."
_
"First recommendation is to buy more batteries(There is a 4 pack with a 4 port charger for $15 on Amazon)."
_
"got all the battery and all charge to 3.84v for it and the 4mb card the charger work ok only charge to 4.0v not 4.2v.. it hover really good in the house the camera work but not in low light."

"Good control and a lot of fun."
_
"Anyway, the quadcopter is very good for what it is but you need to learn how to control it."
_
"Controls are easy to manage; with very little quad copter experience, I was maneuvering this thing quickly through the house with ease."
_
"Controls are easy to use, flies well for a starter drone."

Range

Range:
"Great looking lots of extras but the range is horrible !"
_
"Only problem is when it gets out of radio range it continues for a few seconds before if shuts down."
_
"I would say, it would be that the range is not the greatest Otherwise, pretty sweet! "
_
"I don't know about the 50meter range, but it gets pretty far out there, probably further, before it starts to falter and way above the tree tops for some pretty cool pictures."
_
"It will falter before it dies and will drop easily to the ground if it dies or goes out of range."
_
"The image quality is okay but good for a quadcopter of this price range."
_
"Great looking lots of extras but the range is horrible !"
_
"You may have a problem if you are flying it in an urban area or a suburb, since 2.4GHz is a very crowded frequency, but I'm quite satisfied with the range."
