Unbranded X5C Final Thoughts

"GREAT EXPERIENCE!"

It's also important to take your time with the installation. There is a Quick-Start guide printed inside the top flap. This is our first drone that uses GPS. And it looks like a UFO if flown at dusk. I travel a lot and can take all I need in a backpack.
