DROCON Final Thoughts

"So far so good."

Seems well built and blades are well protected. Then I can select to the VR mode and wear my own VR head set. Also a great feature is the One Key Return to Home button. Bigger drones will cost much more with more battery life. It works perfectly with no problems, indoors, outdoors.
