ABSOLUTE WASTE OF MONEY - is there a below 0 rating?

I wish I had read the reviews on here first. Like many others, I purchased this as a present for my daughter and it was defective right out of the box. The controller would not communicate at all with the drone. Tried to return it to Best Buy and they said they do not accept drones for return once the box is opened. I was not told this when I purchased it - otherwise I would have purchased one of the many online. How are you supposed to know if something is defective unless you open it???!!!??? Escalated to the manager - was told "too bad". Have been a very good and loyal customer of Best Buy for many years. Never again. Best buy should open a side business selling cats in boxes that "may or may not be alive... no refunds".

GARBAGE - AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Bought at Best Buy, cashier DID NOT tell me it could not be returned if opened. Battery life was a whopping three minutes after a two hour charge. Went to return...HAHA...not happening...was exchanged for a new one. So they just traded one piece of junk for another piece of junk. Make a product that cannot be returned? Easy way to make money - good gig if you can get it! Wont be buying from Best Buy again.

Better Than Expected

I won this drone in a draw and it's my first drone. I was surprised by how easy it was to control and how well it flies, given the reasonable price tag. Phone app was super-simple to connect to drone and stream video while flying. My 10-yr-old daughter had no problem controlling it and executing the flips and tricks. Seems like a great entry-level drone.

Do not waist money

Bough this item on 24DEC 2016 for my son Christmas gift. One of the blades does not work during the first try on 25DEC2016. "return policy" in best buy does not allow return or refund after the box is open even for a defective product. I have to contact manufacture to see how to resolve the issue. Will update After I contact the manufacture.

Terrible quality

Received this drone for a Xmas gift. Out of the box it looked good. Charged the battery and took it for its flight. Had to read through the manual to get it started. Once it would "take off" it would roll onto the floor as if the blades were. It all turning the same speed. Tried a second time and same thing. This time two blades broke off as nothing protects it when it rolls over. Good thing it came with replacement blades. Tried again after calibration and same thing. Got frustrated and tried again. This time I believe the battery was dead. Not even 5 mins of run time. Grrrrr. Charges battery and tried again. Same thing. Looked over controller and noticed two buttons for tilt and trim were broken or stuck. Cheap product!!!!

Bad quality

I opened up my package and charge the battery as per instructions. I was trying to learn how to fly it, but it kept flying on its side. After the second attempt one of the fins broke off. I tried again the machine wouldn't take off. Battery dead.. this was after 5 mins. Went through the charging again, and tried again. Same thing happened. It would t hover. I started to pack it away to return it and noticed a couple buttons on the controller seemed to be stuck in place. Probably why it kept doing a barrel roll. Overall cheap design. Camera does not angle downward. Only forward. And you need to use your phone as a display. Buy something better
