Rated 5 out of 5 by from my 1st drone.-: COMES WITH FREE micro USB STICK SND MEMORY CARD NOT MENTIONED IN BOX OR ADVERT. I passed Maplin in Putney High St amd was impressed with window advert showing 50% discount and week old product. Chatted with friendly staff, went away to think about it and came back and bought it day before Black Friday 2016. EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY!!! LOVED IT, FUN AND GREAT FOR BEGINNERS TO LEARN AND PRACTISE USING FLYING CONTROLS,, COMES WITH FREE SCREWDRIVER, SPARE PROPELLERS AND LEGS AND REQUIRED A FIRM STRONG DELICATE GRIP TO CHANGE PROPELLERS HAD TO CHANGE ONE PROPELLER LOL DUE TO BAD FLYING SKILLS LOL BE CAREFUL TO AVOID TOUCHING MOVING BLADES AS IT HURTS. TURN POWER TO OFF BY PRESSING LEVER DOWN.. :-) 10 OUT OF 10 xxx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected I bought this today, taking a chance on the limited info on the website. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by the contents of the box. I have not had chance to fly it yet so can't comment of performance. On opening the box I found the Copter with blades and guards in place, the control which looks ok Mode 2, left hand throttle and a micro SD card USB Adaptor with a 4 gig card, the sales guys did try to sell me a card as it's advertised without one, also a bag of bits containing spare blades, usb charger, landing gear and screwdriver. Instructions are good for a translated item There is only one battery, but it's a standard format so should be availabe via Ebay quite cheaply. At this price I would say it's a great buy and wouldnt expect them to be on the shelves too long so pending the flight performance I am very pleased with my purchase. Ian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, 10 year old loves it! We bought this as a Christmas present and it's been a real winner! Our sons have had similar things before and they have been rubbish so we really weren't expecting much..... this drone is brilliant! My son can use it easily and it is quick to charge. We have been averaging about 10 mins flying time. Came with some spares and the memory card. I'd definitely recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty product The quadcopter was a brilliant bit of kit when i purchased it. I was so impressed with its performance i decided to buy another for my son for xmas but my drone became unresponsive after just 3 weeks and my sons drone became unresponsive after 4 days. I would not recommend buying these drones untill the technical issues have been addressed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but lack of available spares is serious - Maplin please address! Great little drone and fairly resiliant but sooner or later you will want spare parts. Each of the four blades only goes in one position so damage two on the same motor and your stuffed. Very light and very susceptible to lightest of winds. Apart from that great fun whilst it works, camera works well but annoying buzz on sound track. Good learner but so much better if there were ready access to spares

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very clever A very clever little machine. But very unstable in the vertical sense. Very hard to control particularly difficult to teach youngsters (and I am an ex-pilot). While I realise it would add weight it needs a simple (ultrasound?) altimeter to make it easy to control vertically and so that the left hand switch would really be "height" as it is labelled whereas it is at present only "power".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features It was an amazing drone because it was the perfect size for my bedroom and it did flips and rolls and it took videos with sound and amazing photos it is also great for flying outside because it has three modes and also no matter how many times my little cousins smashed it into the wall it was still absolutely fine and if you tangle something in the blade you can just pull the blade off and take the fluff out and pop the blade right back on.

Hi , I bought this for my daughters birthday but it wont take off properly. I've tried trim and reset etc but it just flips over when trying to take off. Is there anything I can do?

Asked by: Mick
It may be worth checking the props are oriented correctly. Typically flipping would be an indicator of incorrect prop placement.

How do I get the propellers off? It seems to be very tight and can’t seem to get one off as the one broke and I just want to replace it. Links for videos I could see how to do this? Thanks

Asked by: Jonno
Unfortunately, there are no links to videos on how to remove these as they do just lift off.

Are there spare motors for these ?

Asked by: Ashi
This can be taken into your local Maplin store and assessed as to what the problem is, and then can be informed as to your options.
