Could not get the remote camera controls to work. They made it right by sending a replacement. I think the Holy Stone app will take some getting used to. It's all very simple and straight forward to assemble. It came with a sleek remote control.

DJI 481669 First Impressions

"Fantastic GIDY Camera Drone!"

Turn on the drone and go to wifi setting in your phone. I would give it more stars if I could! This is an essential process for proper flight. Also I would HIGHLY suggest you use the prop guards. New drone shows no issues and flies very well.

DJI 481669 Final Thoughts

"Unbelievable!"

We are currently having 12-15MPH gusts of wind. This new compass requires no compass calibration on start up. This arrived earlier than I expected from DJI. Also a great feature is the One Key Return to Home button. Some reason the App doesn't work with a pixel 2 phone.
