I'm a fun of drones, this one is lightweightl, easy to control. My iPhone Xs max fit perfect in the remote control. It includes an extra battery so you can enjoy it for about 20 min of flying. The quality of the photos are good and the app works great with iOS. Have a lot of functions and is simple to use.
This is my first drone, I’m a total beginner but I was able to record this video I took with its onboard camera as soon as I was ready to fly. I have crashed so many times I think this little thing is indestructible, one time I accidentally pushed the emergency shut off button on the transmitter and little snap fell from 10 feet high onto the tile floor and the camera which is attached to the battery door came loose and I thought I had finally broken this marvel, I put it back together and it started flying again! Two of the trim cups covering the motors got lost in crashes. One of the prop guards broke but now I’m more confident flying this thing without them and now I look at my scratched up drone and the more scratched the more I love it, this thing is tough. I’m flying it better every time I fly it, by the way I clocked the flight time of the batteries and when it landed automatically it was shy of the 10 minutes (9:50’s or so) and it still comunicated with my iPhone to download video to my photos thru the air. Awesome!
I've never flown a drone before this one, so I can not compare it to any others. The drone was very inexpensive compared to some of the others out there, but had good reviews so I went with it. I can now say I am very pleased with it as my first drone and have already had a lot of fun with it.Getting the drone going is pretty easy as long as you follow the instructions. One interesting thing I saw is that the reviews for the android version of the app are pretty poor, but I've had no problem with the app. I suspect since there is such a wide variety of android devices out there, that some just don't work quite as well with it. (perhaps differing qualities of wifi chipsets or something of that nature?) If you want to look at the google play store reviews yourself, look up snaptain era. (there's another snaptain something or other on there too -- not sure why there are two) Another thing to keep in mind -- the screenshots for the app show it in chinese only. Let me assure you that it is absolutely not all in chinese -- and devs if you read this, I'd highly recommend uploading some english UI pictures as well. =) (even had a cute little tutorial video for getting started that is in english)I did find that the camera often would lose real time viewing -- but I was flying it based off my own eyes rather than looking through the screen.It does seem to have a habit of "floating" to one side instead of hovering tightly in place, but I don't know how much of that might be related to my own quality of attaching the blade protectors and such. (ie maybe they're out of balance) And it's not particularly bad, just something to compensate for.The battery life is only about 7-9 minutes I would say -- so keep that in mind. (i did not the first time flying it) It does come with a second battery. Also if you write a review like I'm doing here -- you can get a free accessory. either an extra 2 batteries, a micro sd card, or an action camera. Pretty cool that they do that. (and honestly I'm bad about writing reviews so good incentive)Overall I love the functionality of the drone, the app, and the little controller that comes with it. It has some minor isms here and there but I expected that at the price point! And none of the issues have stopped me from enjoying it.On an amusing note, I did manage to run it out of batteries while it was over my roof and had to fish it out of the gutter. =)
