YKS Final Thoughts

"As Expected!"

Really the best YKS Camera Drone for the money! I have some really cool ideas for them. Even the gravity control works well enough to fly it. I liked it enough, so I'm buying another one. This arrived earlier than I expected from YKS.

"Too bad, So sad."

I travel a lot and can take all I need in a backpack. Easy to assemble, easy to fly, easy to maneuver. Wish I got a bit longer on the drone battery though. It holds altitude like a champ and is easy to control. Overall, a decent purchase at this price point.
