Hobbypower Final Thoughts

"Easy to maneuver."

Seems well built and blades are well protected. Plus the cat seems to enjoy chasing it around as well. I’ve not confirmed the same behavior with Bluetooth. I plan to research other drone accessories built by Hobbypower. The controls are easy to master and intuitive.

It hovered in place even with the 4 to 7 mph breezes. You have to make sure it’s facing the same way as your glove. A friend has a DJI Phantom drone, and flew My Hobbypower today. Turn on the drone and go to wifi setting in your phone. Even the gravity control works well enough to fly it.
