Brilliant bit of kit for the money. So much fun.

My son got a Quadcopter for Christmas and I had a few goes and I was useless with it. So I decided to buy one for myself to get a bit of practice in. I chose one of the cheapest I could find and it arrived the next day. I've had it for three days now and I am very pleased with it. Well packaged, pretty good instructions but, here are a few tips.
Firstly, the main remote takes AAA batteries (not AA as stated in the instructions). Make sure that you use good new batteries in the remote (otherwise you may lose communication with the drone like I did when I stuck in some old batteries from my telly remote).
Second, to pair up with the drone, switch the drone on (by pressing the button on top of the drone and holding until the drone LED's start flashing). Next, turn on the remote and then push the left joystick forwards until you hear a beep from the drone. Then pull the left joystick back until the drone LED's go solid. You are now ready to fly.
Third tip is to make sure that you know how to do an emergency shutdown (hold the front left hand button down).
Don't fly this outside until you have mastered it inside your home. It takes a good few goes to get used to which levers and buttons control direction and height and if you start off outdoors, chances are, you will lose your drone.
My first go, I was crashing all over the place but after half a dozen sessions, I have become a bit of a master.
The drone battery gives me about 8 minutes of full on stunt flying with flips and rolls and around 15 minutes of simply hovering on the spot (which is the first thing you need to master). You get two drone batteries which each take between 30 minutes and an hour to charge.
I haven't even unpacked the wristwatch or waterdrop controls yet as I wanted to get used to the main control before I tried the others.
I'm about to order a 2nd drone for spares (mainly for the batteries because they are not sold separately).
Don't be put off by the low price. This thing is quality.
