Currently very disappointed with this drones - had significant technical trouble compared to other drones our friends have had. Once charged, my boyfriend spent 2 hours trying to connect to the drone's wifi, and kept getting told 'no ip', or 'cannot connect'. When he did finally get it working it was like the drone had a mind of it's own - rather than lifting straight up and hovering, it shot horizontally, skimming across the carpet in unexpected directions! This repeated a number of times, followed by getting some lift before it span off and crashed into the stairs, already cracking the flimsy foam cover. I naturally accused my boyfriend of not reading the instructions properly or taking care, but the same things happened when I tried. Then later, I came downstairs to find him held in the corner by the drone - it had gone up but the wifi had disconnected so it had gone into 'autopilot' mode, but then he couldnt get it to reconnect for ages! I must admit this was a funny image seeing him pinned there, but highlights the technical unreliability of the app. I'm keen to get some technical support or, of if possible replace because this just has not delivered for the cost!! Will update review if I get assistance and the situation improves.
