"I am blown away!"

I would give it more stars if I could! It took me 5 minutes to go through instruction. Turn on the drone and go to wifi setting in your phone. Some reason the App doesn't work with a pixel 2 phone. Even the gravity control works well enough to fly it.

Readytosky First Impressions

"Good for flight."

Everything worked well right out of the box. This new compass requires no compass calibration on start up. Wish I got a bit longer on the drone battery though. It's pretty quick and sounds like a really loud mosquito. Didn’t unplug in the middle of the flights.

  • Readytosky 220mm FPV Racing Drone Frame Carbon Fiber 5 inch Quadcopter Freestyle Frame Kit 4mm Arms + Lipo Battery Strap
  • ★The 4mm thick, 6061 aluminum structure on the front of this frame corners the market for providing the most protection and versatility in mounting your cameras.
  • ★The "low-rider" style top-plate,this lowered mount gets the battery closer to the center of gravity for this machine.
  • ★An unexpected (but very welcome) feature of the recessed top-plate is that the camera cage will be more likely to protect your battery in the event of an upside-down impact.
  • ★The innovation (that we will explore here) is the VTX mount on the rear of the bus.
  • ★Full 3K Carbon Fiber airframe featuring a solid 4mm fpv frame arms.

This really is a great drone for anyone of any ability. I love this Usmile Camera Drone, it is a beast in a small package! This is a great flyer for both indoor and outside flying. Very durable for a beginner to crash lots of times. It doesn't have that annoying buzz that some have.
