– It’s cheap!
– Small and easily portable. Carrying case also serves as its controller.
– Propellers are highly protected by a cage which entirely encases the quadcopter. Additionally, there is no way anyone could possibly get dinged by the props, making this good for “smaller” fliers.
– Reasonable flight time of about 4 minutes.
– Headless mode and one key return.
– Does not require FAA registration
– Although the cage provides plenty of protection to both the propellers and pilot, it also affects and degrades the quadcopter’s flight performance. This is strictly a indoor flier as the slightest breeze will carry this away. Not very maneuverable, and is mainly intended for beginner fliers learning the basics of quadcopter control.
– It quickly builds up an accelerometer drift that you need to counter opposite movement of the pitch roll stick. Eventually the drift becomes uncontrollable. Landing for a few seconds will cancel the drift, allowing the quadcopter to momentarily become flyable again. But the drift will reoccur once in flight.
