Flight time is ok I’ve found, I reckon 10 minutes is around the norm for just flying around. Taking videos and photos and messing with the flips etc reduces this but it’s so small I only fly around for a few minutes if fun anyway.
Photos first - I think in good light these are fantastic. Really clear. In our well lit conservatory the pics are superb. You obviously have to get the drone positioned right to get focus when close but there’s plenty of angle for scenery pictures. Not super high res but very crisp and colourful.
Video sadly is let down but constant glitches and pauses, where it skips several frames (see video posted) and generally ruins some otherwise great quality videos. The WiFi is no doubt to blame and I believe there’s some kit that can help boost this but as it is you will loose frames and get drops in quality as soon as you go more than a few minutes away. It’s a shame but I guess this is a toy in reality.
The way this things stays steady in the air is amazing. It’s super balanced and stable. Perfect for clumsy users like me. Indoors on low light it gets confused though but in good light you can get away with small enclosed areas without smashing it up.
Landing I find is a pain as you have to set it on the phone and accept a pop up which in a quick land situation is a nightmare. But it works excellently on your hand or a flat surface. No dramas.
I haven’t used this a huge amount but it’s appeal hasn’t died yet. It’s a really great gadget but just that really. No use at all in anything above a small breeze and so small your limited in open spaces. Great to play with though and pictures are clear enough to use for aerial shots that you can’t get from a phone.
