The quality that this offers far exceeds the cost. Besides that though its a great little drone. Even the gravity control works well enough to fly it. This is our first drone, never used one before. Could not get the remote camera controls to work.

Snake River Prototyping Filtre i1 Series ND16/CP Final Thoughts

"Decent quality."

I plan to research other drone accessories built by Snake River Prototyping. Bigger drones will cost much more with more battery life. Very pleasantly surprised by the video quality of this! Best part is it is fully charged in 30 min. This is a great flyer for both indoor and outside flying.

You have to charge the batteries with a laptop or computer. My eyes are not as good as they used to be. You have to make sure it’s facing the same way as your glove. I would give it more stars if I could! Very durable for a beginner to crash lots of times.
