Coolest mini-drone ever
1) To start, this drone is so much smaller than you think. I can easily wrap the palm of my hand around it. 2) It is the easiest t 1) To start, this drone is so much smaller than you think. I can easily wrap the palm of my hand around it. 2) It is the easiest thing to connect, it connects automatically within seconds. 3) The wheels that attach that help you go on the ceiling are extremely fun to use. 4) The only downside is that you really only get a solid 8-10 minutes to use it before it dies. …

Potential is there, but much better quads of this size on market for less $
Battery life went to unsatisfactory after 2 or 3 cycles. New firmware seems to have helped, Not enough flights to know for sure. Battery life went to unsatisfactory after 2 or 3 cycles. New firmware seems to have helped, Not enough flights to know for sure. With what I know about this quad now, would never have wasted $100. It's performance is way short of the several other drones I have of this size. The big wheels is a great idea, but the quad just fails to perform. …

Do not buy this
I bought this drone expecting to have a fun time with my son. It was nothing but frustration. It flies off in random directions fo I bought this drone expecting to have a fun time with my son. It was nothing but frustration. It flies off in random directions for no reason. After a couple of flights, the battery would only last about 30 seconds (!!!) before running out -- even after recharging overnight. The software is buggy and poorly documented. After a little bit of research I realized you can get mini-drones for half the price that work just fine. I don't recommend this product - it's not ready yet. …
