It took me about an hour to put this drone together from start to finish. The instruction manual is really the only issue I’ve found with this drone. I am still trying to figure out the proper way of connecting to the on-board camera.
Before purchasing this model, I had never flown remote controlled drones. And, because I am interested in photography, and this particular model had excellent reviews, I purchased this model as a “learner” and because this model is capable of replacing the model’s camera with a sports action camera like the GoPro (modifications needed to do so – see YouTube). For me as a new “flyer”, the one button return home button was also an attraction (in this price range with all of the other capabilities of this model previously mentioned, I do not think another such model exists).
Another primary reason I purchased this model was because of the excellent customer service mentioned by other reviewers here. I can attest that is the case! After my purchase, customer service emailed me to let me know they were available to help me! I did not email them, they emailed me! That was a pleasant surprise. When I had some difficulty with the FPV application (my error), I emailed customer service and they promptly responded with answers. That is especially noteworthy! (If you buy this model with the c4008 camera and you want first person view capability) then you must download this app from the manufacturer’s website as the app version for the C4008 camera is not in the PlayStore – other MJ FPV apps are – but not this one. Now, I do not like to download APK apps from non-PlayStore sites, and I have informed the company of such – hopefully they will fix that by placing this app in the PlayStore – but as of right now, you should know, it is not.
When the drone arrived, minor assembly was required. Anyway, after about 30 minutes, my drone was prepped for its first flight.
The transmitter is very nice for a drone only costing this much … you will have multiple configurations available for your choosing. I have had no problems with the transmitter or the drone’s operation (except my own ineptitude). This is a big drone – not really something you would want to fly around the house in my opinion.
