Decent drone
Rating: 5
I have played a few times inside and outside of my home. The control is easy, even with little windy weather. Download pictures and videos to phone is easy. I do love it!

Fun little drone, very easy to fly. I also have a DJI phantom and the Mini is much easier to get ready to fly and fly. There was a light breeze one time I was flying it did very well, but have not flown it on a windy day.

Good but not what you would expect.
Rating: 3
Just bought today and have used it twice from a full charge. It is extremely easy to use and has plenty of wonderful features. However, the flight time is 18 minutes before the alarm starts to go off demanding you return it to home and the video cuts out at like 65 meters. Massive exaggerations in advertising.

18 minutes flight time/overpriced
Rating: 1
i have owned several DJI drones, been flying drones since they hit the market. I was disappointed in this one, longest flight time was 18 minutes on one battery. Some of the footage i took was very poor quality while some was ok. It is in my opinion overpriced for what it is. If it was 200 or 250 that would be more reasonable.

very bad

I do not recommend it, it takes a long time to send it and when I checked it to fly it was damaged and then Walmart and the seller give no solution and you lose your money
