Some reviews may put you off this quadcopter.. Don't knock it till you've tried it! I was a little put off, but I'm glad I went with my gut instinct and not the reviews. This quad is ideal for first timers, The lights underneath aren't the brightest when it's up in the sky so I put some black tape on as a marker as to which way's forward as it's difficult to tell when 50-60ft up in the air - this is the only downside I've found. The batteries only give you about 10 minutes airtime so it would be beneficial to purchase 1 or 2 more. The camera is good quality for the price you pay, if you're wanting the one that connects to your phone, don't get this.
To me, you get what you pay for, this is excellent value for money in my eyes.
if you are looking for a really good budget quadcopter .this is it x5c well constructed. extremely easy to fly out doors in a wind up to 6-7 mph. if you fly on grass till you get the knack you will not receive much damage if you crash. this is the most flexible little quad I've come across. go to youtube you will see hundreds of videos. the x5c has a camera 2mp very basic and jerky but for the price goodvalue. I give the x5c 10/10. get yourself 5 or 6 extra battery's. regards bruce.
For a value for money buy, I am very impressed with this. bought for my son's xmas. First attempt went very well and produced good photos and video. As usual, we did not read the user guide and did not realise the full controls. Second attempt, saw the drone go to about 100 feet in the air and about 50 yards away from us, only for my son to say he no longer had it under control. We watched it disappear over the next housing estate. Thankfully, I found it on someone's front garden a good 200 yards from mine, with no damage.Great fun, but we could have lost it, LOL.
This is a great value for money Quad, if you are not looking to spend a fortune on a top end unit then I can recommend this one. I have never flown one before but after a few minor mishaps soon had it working fine, it goes up quite high and even when I touched the house guttering on the way up it soon stabilized itself. The video is pretty good although don't expect broadcast standard at this price, it's interesting to watch. All in all if you are curious about what you can do with a quad this is a great low cost starting point. May be a good idea to get a few spares in stock they are quite cheap, and it seems a few bumps will be inevitable, I have just ordered the crash kit which seems to cover most eventualities.
Very nice drone, my son loves it. Quite easy to fly and the lights gives it a really beautiful appearance. Another good point is that even on a harsh landing, the drone is quite robust and doesn't break. The only downside is the noise, but hey, it has 4 engines. Overall, a great toy; I made my son happy with it.
