"OEM Stuff here."

It doesn't have that annoying buzz that some have. This is the second iFlight Drone I have purchased. It is super responsive and performs well. Some reason the App doesn't work with a pixel 2 phone. I did a lot of reading before choosing it.

"Other than that."

Seems well built and blades are well protected. Adds some professionalism look to a spectator. It's also important to take your time with the installation. The liability insurance is worth it. Below I will list the pros and cons I've got with this drone.
