Picked this guy up at Fry's for $50. Didn't work with my ZTE on Android 7.1.1. Exchanged and the new one doesn't work either. Also tried with an HTC on Android 6, a Samsung and a Samsung tablet. No video or flight controls.
Do not buy this drone. While impressive at first, the motors are not very robust, I had one of the motors burn out when it flipped on the lawn, company says they do not supply replacement motors. Leaves me with a 150.00 useless drone. Guess they ment for it to be disposable. Very disappointed...
First Read all of the directions! The bird fly's and handles great when you have the proper settings dialed in on the remote. Great video, how ever unable to download or upload the video to a computer device. This drone is NOT for the beginner user! I would advise any one to purchase 2 extra battery's for the bird if you want to have alot of flight and video time. A;; that said, this is a great bang for the buck. If you want some thing that handles better or has a longer battery life then you need to jump up to a drone that is in the $500 plus price range
This thing is junk, you have to spend 5 minutes trimming it out to get it to fly straight. and then there is about 2 minutes of battery left to fly it around.
And the trim setting is different every single time you turn it on. It might flip over backwards the second you hit the stick or it might flip over forwards or sideways, it might just tip over or auto rotate. You never know what it is going to do so you must spend most of the battery just trying to get it to hover.
Pretty disappointed with this drone. I bought it on our way out of town hoping to have fun flying it with the kids. I flew it 1 day and decided the property we were staying at wasn't big enough. So I put it away till we got home. When I went to fly it at home, one of the propellers wouldn't spin. So I took that one back to the store I bought it from and got the only other one they had left. After I exchanged them, i noticed this one had already been open and was clearly returned. I got it home and put together only to find out there was a short in the cord where the battery plugged into the drone. So that one will be going back tomorrow and at this point, I just want my money back.
Don't buy any of this companies drones , there is no support to speak of . All experienced drone operators know that the parts are expendable . With any flight time you will need to replace rotors and motors. I called to order a new replacement motor . A rude call center Brittany told me it was to difficult to replace and that they don't ship motors .
I told her its held in place by 3 screws and that I needed a motor. She told me we don't ship motors , they are to difficult to replace , that you can't get it out. I responded that it's not a turbine , I'm an engineer and already have it out, I just need a replacement motor . I asked to speak to her supervisor . She told me that she would have her supervisor call me. Fat chance.
Spend you money on a better supported brand of drone . Parts are going to become damaged or wear out. You are going to want to keep it flying.
