Flight



For once we have a beautiful day to fly this little folding copter.  My first step was to push the small button on the back of the quad that releases the propeller arms, then to connect my smart device to the copter and start the flight.  I like the JJRC app as its quite basic but has some great features to get you flying quick and safely.
My first impressions of the drone flying is that was is very stable, altitude hold works very well but there was one quite large problem,  I noticed the quadcopter was climbing but not dropping altitude very quick, it even seemed to get stuck at the 8ft mark (approx), even using the automatic landing it didn't fall enough.  So i assessed the situation as i was on my won i decided to keep flying it, about 3 minutes later the battery drained and the copter brought itself down quickly and it landed without any issue.

Overall - 5/10

Positive - Flies very well, altitude hold works well, video quality recorded by the camera is good, folding arms makes this super portable, controlled from your smartphone using the JJRC app 

Negative - Battery life is far too short, 360 flips don’t work but not every option works with every copter on the JJRC app.
