It's small size makes it very portable. Comes equipped with a camera, which can be useful in the right conditions. Easy to learn and control, and very durable for a low budget drone.
Not as advanced as more high-end drones. Could lose control if you travel too high. Built-in camera is of relatively low quality.
Quick and easy setup. The battery life is impressive. Despite its small size, the body is extremely durable. The mouse-like hand controller is relatively intuitive once you get the hang of it.
Not as responsive as some would like and it's very lightweight, so even light winds make it difficult to control outdoors.
Protective shield around propellers makes it safe for kids to play with inside and outdoors. It can take a beating. Doesn't require much skill to operate.
Many users wish the drone held its charge a bit longer. Though fun, it's not much more than a toy.
Super lightweight. The protective shield is soft and bendable, so its safe for kids to play with. Does a decent job of sensing its surroundings to prevent crashes.
Limited battery life. Overall, it's not very easy to control with your hands and could get away if you're not careful.
Simple USB charging. Very easy to unpack and use right out the box. The sensors allow it to work well indoors. Not much need for learning controls, it pretty much flies on its own.
Flimsy build. Some users have complained about losing the drone when flying outdoors.
Drones are becoming more and more popular each day. Once just an imaginative prop in sci-fi movies, drones are now very real and have quickly made their way into the mainstream marketplace. Now the everyday consumer has the ability to purchase their own mini aircraft. Newcomers will find, however, that flying a drone isn't easy, and there's a steep learning curve to getting it right. Luckily, there's a new type of drone that's emerged, and it can be controlled by simply waving one's hand. Gesture-controlled drones allow entry-level operators to experience the excitement of flying without the pressure of learning how to operate the sometimes complicated RC controls. Many of these hand controlled drones are for children, but there are a few made for experienced flyers.
