    This thing operates as smoothly and easily as an indoor drone will EVER operate (probably). Our 12 year old & 7 year old grandkids were doing great fun flights after just a few introductory instructions from 73 year old me. Just pair the drone to the controller (move left stick forward then backward) hit the OneTouch button to pop up the drone about five feet in air (keep the rear red light always pointing rearward for easiest operation) then move the drone where you want with the right stick. Use the left stick forward or backwards if you want to raise or lower the drone. Move the left stick Left or Right to rotate the drone clockwise or counter clockwise (to keep the red light pointing in its same starting position.

    Try not to change the controller’s orientation during the flight. In other words, keep sitting or standing and pointing the controller in the same direction throughout the whole flight – no matter where the drone goes. Hit the OneTouch button again when you are over your landing area. (Best controlled landing you could ask for.)

    If you really want to trim the drone (to minimize drift when hovering in place) push straight DOWN on the TOP of the left stick (like you were trying to push the stick INTO the controller) while correcting any drift by moving the right stick as needed to hold the drone in place. Let go of both sticks and see if you are happy with your corrections to the drift.

    I bought this for my 7 year old. As I was unsure as to whether or not the controls would be too hard for him, I didn’t want to spend too much on a drone and this fitted the bill perfectly. It is much better than we could have hoped for. It didn’t take him too long to get to grips with the controls and there are several options to make it more simple for beginners to use. It flies well with a good response and is super tiny and light, so no harm done if there is the odd crash. We have only used it indoors as I would worry about him not having complete control of it outside. The only negative is the short battery life (to be expected given the size of the unit), but it recharges quickly and to be honest, it’s nice to know that he can only play with it for 10 minutes at a time as it is a bit annoying having it whizz around my head continuously!

    Great little fun toy drone. If you are interested in drones then this little chap is going to assist you learning the flight controls.

    A Little bit of getting used to flying it first off, but once you get the hang of the controls you’ll be flying room to room. As this drone is so small i don’t recommend you try flying it outside – it’s light and the slightest bit of wind will affect it. It’s an ideal toy for use at the home or annoying people at work by buzzing around the office! Saying that, i have flown it around the garden and it was great fun!

    Great for indoor fun! this drone is so light it wouldn’t really break anything. During my time getting used to flying it i hit walls, doors, humans and pretty much everything else but nothing broken, hurt or killed. I was even impressed how the drone bounced off the wall if you got too close due to the soft propeller guards flexing. It makes indoor flying safe!

    In the box there is the drone, charging USB lead and the controller. There are even 4 spare propellers! The instructions aren’t great english but you get the idea from it. One point i will raise is the charging instructions mention the light being red when charging and green when complete. It took me a few moments to realise this refers to the little LED on the USB charging lead -NOT on the drone – the lights on the drone do not come on when charging!

    Charging: The drone comes complete with an internal battery, the controller does not. Make sure you’ve got a pack of AAA batteries for the controller! I had an issue charging the drone from my computer’s USB where no lights on the lead illuminated, but once i used a USB wall charger plug it worked perfect. The time for the drone to charge is about 30 mins. This will give you about 10 mins flight time.

    Controls: To be fair the controls aren’t bad! standard stick layout for drones. There is 2 switches where your right thumb sits for heading mode and speed. The heading mode, i guess, would be useful for those people who get confused when its coming towards you as the stick control swaps from the configuration if you were flying away from yourself. Left then becomes right yaw and right becomes left. As a full size drone flyer it made me dizzy so i didn’t use it. The speed setting puts the drone into kamikaze mode – make sure you have the room as this little fella moves quick!

    Build quality is surprisingly good! The propeller guards are soft enough to give you a bit of a cushioning when flying into things. The rest of the drone is built very well and doesn’t feel like it would break. I’ve hit a few things and it’s still in perfect condition. The additional propellers in the box are also great for a more destructive accident! The controller works well and is responsive – it’s light in the hands and feels comfortable to hold.

    My only issues with the drone were as follows:
    1. The calibration before flight is tedious and it would be better if this was automatic. Having to repeat it when you crash is a pain but i keep reminding myself this is a TOY – it’s not going to have the features a bigger drone will have.
    2. Altitude lock doesn’t always make the drone hold altitude – also it doesn’t take into account little drafts affecting height. Every so often my one decided to ascend or descend for no reason, but it was easy to control this with the left stick so no worries.

    Overall a great little toy for young and old to enjoy! Even my other half picks it up for a quick fly around the kitchen. The cats and dogs aren’t too fond of it – our 2 dogs seem to think it’s a noisy fly and bark at it! haha! We were thinking of setting up a little obstacle course to fly through – something for a rainy day inside!

    This would be a great gift for an older child or a young-at-heart adult (like myself) and the price is great for such a fun piece of tech!

     This was purchased for my 8 year old who is to young for a full sized drone, so the deal was a small safe one this year. I thought genuinely for the price it would unflyable and he would give up….i was wrong..It’s excellent quailty, the battery lasts 7-10 mins flying time , and its really easy to control (the auto take off is excellent) . As his skills have improved he is turning landing and side sliding . We love it …sorry I meant he loves it , i steal it.

    This is the best “mini-drone” (quadcopter) in its class out of three we have tried, and the first one that we felt worthy of repurchasing for family gatherings so the kids don’t have to share. No camera on something this small of course.

    Pros:
    (1) Super easy controlled take-offs with the push of a button that then hovers in a very stable mode as you get ready to fly it. Great out of the box.
    (2) Altitude lock works well and is a must have feature on these pocket drones if wanting to safely fly indoors
    (3) When it is on slow speed it can be truly “slow” and still stay aloft. This allows for young kids to play with it better and allows for safer indoor use. I also think it increases the flight time on one charge compared to other pocket drones in the same price point (about 10 minutes, others 6, see here: 

    Top Race Pocket Drone Quad Copter 2.4 Ghz With Headless Mode Unbreakable RC Mini Pocket Drone (TR-MQ7)

    )
    (4) Very easy to control, hardly ever ends up getting crashed

    Cons: Not many, more like potential improvements
    (1) Wish there was a light inside the main body that truly illuminated it for nighttime flying. The outside lights work OK for dusk but that is it.
    (2) There is no “return” button that flies it back to the controller. However, there is a push button auto-land that safely lands it no matter where it is while in range. So if you need to panic, you can still push that button. Also given that we have not found the “auto return” function to work all that well on the models that do have it, I don’t consider the lack of it here a big deal.
    (3) The fans are partially exposed on the top unlike some other truly “caged” models, which may make them easier to damage. But there are still full 360 degree horizontal bumpers and so far this has not been an issue because we rarely crash it because it flies so well. They provide 4 replacement blades which we have not had to try to swap out yet.

    There are pros and cons to all these different quadcopters, but so far this one is the best mix of things on average and the most fun by far. 4 1/2 stars.

    Bought it for my two year old grandson, so he could experience one…(!)
    He handles the great little single button take-off/hover and landing, but does need help with everything else. It survives crashes admirably well. Wouldn’t risk flying it outdoors, as we’ll never see it again. Already lost it in the house once – took ages to find it under a chair in the adjacent room, to where it had shot out of sight!
    Flying time is probably less than 5 minutes on a full charge and it charges up (from a smartphone battery pack) in
    under 30 minutes.
    The “headless” mode is handy for novices (we admit, we are), although with a red LED at the back and white at the front, it is easy to tell which way it is pointing.

    Edit:
    After about 6 weeks (of not even daily use) it died. It looked like the battery had given up, but it’s not easily replaced. Anyway, reported it to Amazon and they gave me a free return and full refund, as it was an order fulfilled by them. 5 stars to Amazon for customer service, but one off my earlier review of the product.

     SUMMARY: Durable and has protected propellers which makes it safe to learn on. The altitude hold is a great feature for first time fliers. Perfect for younger kids and adults who are kids at heart.
    UPDATE: To avoid having it uncontrollably gain altitude DO NOT use the auto takeoff button. Instead pull both sticks down and in until motors start to spin. I have also purchased the UDI 46 which is the exact same item (but blue) which is sometimes less expensive.
    DETAILED REVIEW:
    Flying: With the altitude hold, this quadcopter hovers like the firefly, for which it’s named. You will need to make small corrections, but it makes it easy to learn the basics of flying. Try flying figure 8’s around obstacles and through the legs of chairs and soon you’ll be ready for something more expensive. It has 3 speeds from walking speed to jogging. It beeps to let you know. It is a bit tame for more advanced fliers and it doesn’t do flips. I’ve flown it outside up to 60 ft away and above the height of telephone poles. Understandably it can’t handle more than a light breeze. It has automatic motor shut off when it crashes (I crashed on purpose in my video).

    Battery: It has a non-removable battery with a tiny plug that is a little tricky. I got 5 ½ minutes indoor flying before the lights started to blink and 7 minutes before it auto-landed. The charger has a small red light on the chord which turns green after about 30-40 minutes of charging.

    Design: Made of a very durable rubbery plastic which seems indestructible. The propellers are well protected and they pull off if needed. The frames seem similar but is slightly shorter and wider than other mini copters (F36, H36, E010) but the body seems to have a much more premium construction (see picture). There is a nice white headlight and a red taillight which work well for orienting the front and back. It has a very small on and off switch and plug on the back. Some people may not like that the battery is not easily removable. The charging chord plug is also very small making it hard to tell which side is up and down but it is not a big deal.

    Controller: It is small but easy to use and quality far superior to those on other mini copters. The control pads are a bit stiff at first but great once they break in. It takes 3 AAA batteries (not included).

    My Tips: Periodically take off the propellers to remove dust bunnies which can build up inside. Remember to put them back in the right spot. There are 2 different props. Diagonal props are the same. Keep the box it is compact and nice quality. It can be used to transport it. Altitude hold seems to work better if it is manually launched (pull both sticks down and in) rather than using auto take off. If you have a hard crash you might want to shut it off and restart it because the gyros can get confused.

    The Company & Quality: Mine did not work in headless mode and it had altitude hold problems. When I opened up the controller it looked like a bad solder on the circuit board. These toy copters often share stock parts and are prone to quality glitches so I don’t hold it against them. I contacted Potensic and their customer service was great. They were helpful in customer support and were willing to stand behind their product. The new one is perfect.

    Other Options: The H36/F36/E010 are much harder to fly without altitude hold and they don’t seem as good in quality. There are similar models with cameras but that will drain batteries and cost more.

     Great beginner drone. Easy to fly and goes where you are aiming for. I included a video of my 8 year old flying it for the first time.

    This drone is excellent for kids wanting to learn the basics of drone flying indoors… or more importantly, it is a great choice for them to mess around. On slow mode it is so stable and easy to fly my 7-year-old can fly it easily. My 10 year old likes to put it on to top speed buzz around the place. It is robust and has has been crashed too many times to count. There are spare propellers as well. One minor issue is the batteries don’t last too long. You can buy spare batteries and a charger for a fiver so if you are flying a lot then it might be worth a worth while purchase. This done is defo for indoor use – would be no use outside in the wind.

     Bought as a fun toy for my boyfriend and our dog. Blu likes to chase birds outside and figured this would be great for indoors. Well… he LOVES it!
