After charging the battery (says one hour to charge 100% but I think it charges quicker), setting up to fly is simple. Turn drone on first, then the remote. There is a button to choose three modes on the remote: slow, medium and fast. Fly indoors in slow mode and fast in open outdoor spaces. Flight time is around 8-10 minutes depending how aggressively you fly it. It actually flies very fast once you get a bit of practice. Careful though because it is easy to get it stuck in a tree if your not careful. I have flown it in up to 5 mph winds with no problem any stronger and I would worry that it will get blown away.
Downloaded the app to connect the camera to my phone as per instructions and it works. The quality of the camera and video link to the phone is not great (you wouldn't be able to fly it FPV). But it add another dimension when flying which is fun!
Overall very happy with the mini quadcopter!
