Great product if you have multiple batteries. You have to make sure it’s facing the same way as your glove. The case is really well-made and everything fits perfectly. I can press the button again and continue the flight. There's a single button auto take-off/landing feature.

They made it right by sending a replacement. Batteries, no reason to stress them like that. Can't wait for my other parts so I can put it all together. It took me 5 minutes to go through instruction. Easy to fly, fast and the most important durable!
