I have only flown two different drones in the past and Mini Drone with Camera my first purchase. It is a cute little drone that works great indoors and teaches the basics of flight.

What I do not like is the controller and stability during hovering. The controller pads (not sticks, think Sony PSP analogue pad) are very stiff, especially the left one which controls altitude and rotation. I am hoping that these will loosen up as I use the controller more. Also, the automatic gyroscopic function seems to work only a little. Each time I fly I use this function while the drone is on a flat, level surface however I still have to do a fair bit of fine tuning with the direction buttons to stabilize the hover mode. Even then, it feels like I cannot not get as close as I like to a stable hover.

All in all, a great starter but if you already own other drones or are a decent pilot, I would steer clear of this model and go for something that offers a more robust controller and effective functions.

The seller has offered to send a new drone and controller so upped to 4 stars for service, will upgrade to 5 if new drone and controller are great.
