Blade

Blade:
"Besides, I've broken a couple blades and gotten it dirty from landing in dusty conditions so a return would not be fair to them."
_
"Black blades are hard to see."
_
"Proto looses blades even more quickly and is more easily damaged."
_
"And 2 sets of blades I would recommend buying the crash pack for the extra blades because you will damage or lose them in a crash."

"I've already broken multiple blades (some extras were included which was nice)."
_
"After we were able to master (reading the instructions on blade placement) the Aviators equivalent to our -10 publication we were off to attempt the hovering skills 101 all over again since flight school!"
_
"I was forced to buy replacement parts kit within 2 days of buying this because everything on this is soft plastic and breaks easily and wiring to motors strip easily while replacing the blades."
_
"This is no $1000 copter but I am extremely impressed with it for $50.- Here's some good things: Easily replaceable blades (super cheap options on amazon other) Pretty much everything else is replaceable too, like rubber feet."

_
"Cons: Blades pop off a little easy for my taste."

Break

Break:
"I bought this for my brother as an Xmas gift- since it's only about $50, I was worried that it would be too childish or that it might break easily, but it's turned out to be amazing."
_
"make sure the legs get put back in place before flying again because the quad has simple break away legs to prevent damage."
_
"Hard to break."
_
"It has a very hardy frame and not the basic cheap flimsy plastic that breaks after one-two flights or crashes as most on the market tend to do."
_
"At first I was apprehensive about flying this quadcopter indoors I was really concerned that it would hit all sorts of objects around my house and either break them or get itself damaged in the process."
_
"very hard to break."
_
"I was forced to buy replacement parts kit within 2 days of buying this because everything on this is soft plastic and breaks easily and wiring to motors strip easily while replacing the blades."
_
"The propellers break easily so you will NEED to buy extras."
_
"Even though they give you 4 spare propellers, I soon learned that this is far from enough as they break very easily and are quick to become lost."
_
"Breaks easily."
_
"But super super fun until it breaks!"

Calibration

Calibration:
"The instructions aren't quite clear as far as calibration goes and I had to turn to YouTube to really get an understanding of how to trim and calibrate it properly."
_
"The instructions are not very clear and I never have been able to get it to calibrate correctly to get it to fly straight."
_
"Very hard to keep calibrated and constantly requiring sub millimeter joystick adjustments to keep still or careening in the intended direction, even after following both calibration instructions."
_
"(once calibrated properly)parts are easy to change out but do require some soldering."
_
"The thing is pretty stable if you do the calibration before each flight."
_
"Once calibrated, worked great and videos were good quality."
_
"You will definitely enjoy the experience if you have calibrated the controller and toy and have a good understanding on the basic motion controls."
_
"The initial calibration was easy for one mode but a little tricky to get the 2nd mode functional."

Charging

Charging:
"Its still in the body and I can't charge it in the body so needless to say, I have not been able to use it to see if it works or not!"
_
"We put the batteries in the remote and went to charge the drone and discovered the black wire was broken off from the motherboard."
_
"The charging cable is junk."
_
"I suppose the only negative is the short flight time on the battery' single charge but extra batteries fix this easily."
_
"Make a decent 5 to 10 ports charger for all of yourOverall I liked it... recommended for beginners and up I am giving it 3 stars for now."
_
"I recommend a 4-5 pack of batteries and a multi-port USB charger though, add a battery bank cell charger and you can charge your batteries out at a park and keep flying almost nonstop."
_
"The unit holds a charge for about a 5 minute flight which is decent for the size."
_
"After charging the battery ( an hour charge time) i flew this immediately with no problems."

_
"Now i know why my parents never bought me one when i was a kid xD it was hard to control at first but after a few days i got it down and it is super fun!"
_
"Take it easy the first time you go outside...a slight breeze, or the wrong control input, a little distraction, or a little too much height...bye-bye Quad."

_
"), this device was hard to control right out of the box."
_
"Very solid and easier to control than others its size."
_
"okay why don't you include say HOME button... Let's say the drone is already far away and almost you can'tsee it almost impossible to control... Well all u need to do is press Home Button.. what it does is it's going to find thetransmitter and move towards it [ to you ]."

Crash

Crash:
"Doing a flip is a little tricky and normally ends up crashing when you attempt to flip."

"when we were able to fly one time, it crashed and broke one of the arms holding the motor in half."

"Also very hard to find if it crashes upside down (as the LEDs only face up)."

_
"when we were able to fly one time, it crashed and broke one of the arms holding the motor in half."
_
"I have crashed it pretty hard (free fall to asphalt) and only lost cheap blades, but I think I've been lucky and assume those kinds of crashes carry some probability of losing a motor, etc."
_
"I highly recommend buying the Hubsan crash pack (about $11 on Amazon) as it comes with extra propellers, 2 motors, 2 LEDs, extra feet, and a replacement copter body for your quadcopter."
_
"You can purchase a crash kit separately and I do recommend it."

"when we were able to fly one time, it crashed and broke one of the arms holding the motor in half."

Guard:
"Great practice copter for $35-$50.- If I had complaints they would be: The bumper guard seems more trouble than it's worth."

Landing

Landing:
"Besides, I've broken a couple blades and gotten it dirty from landing in dusty conditions so a return would not be fair to them."
_
"Landing it on the grass repeatedly broke the propellers."
_
"The danger with this is that bringing it down can be really tricky, and I was unable to avoid a few crash landings."
_
"The problem is, I flew it that high a couple times just fine and returned it for a nice landing, but if a gust of wind turns it another direction you really can't tell which way it's facing after that, so you don't know if you're commanding it come back to you or just making the problem worse by sending it speeding farther away."
_
"We had one crash landing onto a busy road and amazingly it survived!"
_
"It has taken some pretty good crash landing too."

Motor

Motor:
"I'm assuming the bad motor was causing the erratic behavoir."

_

"I'm a horrible pilot."
_
"I will say that I am by no means a good pilot yet."

"I'm sure that's a mistake in some pilot's book."
_
"But it's holding up well, it's fun to fly, and the pilot's errors are his own."
_
"Maybe it's pilot error."
_
"Whether you are brand new or an experienced pilot this has to be hands down the best hobby toy drone in the market."
