LUME CUBE LC-MATRICE22 First Impressions

"Almost forgot."

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.

LUME CUBE LC-MATRICE22 Final Thoughts

"Well done!"

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!

Amazing LUME CUBE Camera Drone and pretty decent bundle overall. Even my high end drone buddies were impressed. There's a single button auto take-off/landing feature. And it looks like a UFO if flown at dusk. Bigger drones will cost much more with more battery life.
