Plan on using user uploaded You Tube videos to figure out how to use this drone! I would consider my self somewhat technically savvy but the directions that came with this drone on how to get it to fly (including a very specific “calibration” that needs to be done each and every time you turn it on, and needs to be done correctly or the engines absolutely just will NOT start) are very poorly translated Mandarin Chinese to English. They are so strange and almost useless to the English speaking population that it’s comical. I was almost SURE this product was either a lemon or a pretend drone that was being manufactured as a scam. I decided to research on You Tube and came across some user uploaded videos that shed some light on how to use the drone. I was shocked when the engines finally turned on. Once you figure it out and learn what the buttons do it’s actually pretty easy to fly, just takes a somewhat complicated process to get it started each time you want to start it up or turn it on. Also, the battery comes with an “explosion protection” bag…seems kind of scary but whatever. Anyway, It seems that knowing the “return home” button is one of the most important functions to learn since I read some reviews that people have lost the drone to it flying away and not being able to locate, which seems easy to do and also sounds pretty dangerous. (If it hit someone or a house or something it could cause some damage.) As far as I can tell, it seems that you have to keep holding down the “return home” button until it safely returns home, lands, and the engines stop. Also, any tiny amount of wind will take this thing away as I could tell by the first time I got it in the air with only 5 MPH winds. The second time, the wind was almost non existent-which was during the filming of my first video (attached to this review) The official weather report said 1mile per hour at that time and at that location. I’m excited to use it again and try to get better at flying it. I gave it only 3 starts because I was very close to returning this drone after many frustrating attempts to “communicate” with the manufacturer’s “customer service”, which ended up being a complete waste of time. I’m pretty sure the responses are just automated robot answers that are literally comical and of absolutely no help at all.
