Positive Points

  • Obstacle Avoidance

    The obstacle avoidance features are built in so that you avoid any crash while in flight. Advanced sensors will detect other objects or obstacles in the room and keep a safe distance. Ceiling protection sticks stand upright at all four corners of the drone so that even if you fly to the height of the ceiling, the sticks will gently brush against it. There is a barometric pressure sensor too.

Negative Points

  • Batteries

    You need 4AA batteries in order to operate, but they are not included so you will need to replace them as necessary. .

  • Smart Device

    What is not clearly advertised is that this is not a unit you can use just on its own. This is a drone that requires, in addition to the various components and batteries, a smart device that you have to purchase separately. You need to connect your smart device to the headset so that you can live stream the HD videos of you as the pilot.


  • Careful What You Record

    One issue that comes up with drone technology, even smaller personal drones like this, is that of what you record. You get to record, or live stream, the content from your navigation. However, given that there are no limits or boundaries associated with the flying drone, you might very well record something that you are not meant to.

    Conversely, you might accidentally invade the privacy of a neighbor and live stream it in the process. You must be very careful about what things you live stream, either on purpose or on accident, because it could land you in a legal battle.

  • Age Limit

    This is not meant for children under the age of ten.

Critical Advice

When you order the drone, as mentioned, you get a micro SD card but it is only 4GB. So, if you wanted to be able to record more than that, you could buy a larger size micro SD card. Their cost ranges between twenty and fifty dollars based on the size, then replace the standard one. The reason one might want to do this is to allow for higher storage of longer videos or multiple videos. An alternative is to just clear the content from the card to another device after each flight.

How It Works

With this drone you get to experience flying as though you were right in the cockpit. It is easy to use such that you can operate it indoors or outdoors, taking advantage of the height lock stabilization. There is an obstacle avoidance function that lets you pilot smoothly. As you are using the controller to navigate, and watching yourself first person from the headset, you can stream the video of your flight.

To use you just plug in the smart device, strap on the headset, and go. This headset allows you to see directly what the drone sees. With it you can stream 720p HD video to multiple smart devices at the same time, so that other people can watch what you are doing as you are doing it. When you are done, you can take the recording of your video and share it with your friends. .
