Would this be right for me?
Make your home your own personal airspace with the Propel Atom 1.0, which is small enough to be operated at home and can be used outdoors too. You can be up and running again in very little time due to the 30 minutes recharge time, with each charge providing you with a good flight time of five minutes. You can fly the Propel Atom 1.0 with seven other people, thanks to the automatic channel selection, making this a great gift that can be enjoyed with friends and family.

Can I perform stunts with this?
A six axis gyroscopic chip keeps the Propel Atom 1.0 very stable, allowing you to fly and perform stunts without the worry that the drone will fly off course. The four channel flight control provides you with ascend, descend, left, right, forward, backward, left bank and right bank movements, increasing the number of different aerial stunts you can perform. Beginners can also enjoy the fun, with a controller setting allowing you to move the drone in accordance to how you move the joysticks. This gives you a good basis to learn, and in no time at all you will be performing 360 degree stunts and more.

Are there spare parts available for this?
Unfortunately aerial accidents may cause you to use up all the spare propellers supplied with the Propel Atom 1.0. Free spares for a year from date of purchase, please contact us on 0330 123 3457 for details

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good little drone Let me first off say this drone is tiny absolutely tiny the size of my palm tiny! The picture made it look a lot bigger than it is so initially I was quite disappointed. BUT when my brother gave it a go it was quite fun, runs for a decent amount of time and came with spare propellers. So overall he quite enjoyed it and I suppose is good for beginners

Rated 4 out of 5 by from my son says its easy to fly than some other drones, but I am disappointed that it didn't have a camera on it, as I must of misread the description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent stable drone, great for beginners and free propellers? A must buy for any enthusiast! Bought this little over 2 weeks ago, have not put it down! Only have a small room but is so well balanced and maneuverable it will fly in any tight space. That long with you don't have to pay for replacement parts its a must buy for any child/adult that wants to get into drone flying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not fly Never once has this lifted from the floor. Have a very disappointed little boy. Worth spending more to get a product that actually works.

Is this drone suitable for indoor flight. If not can you please recommend drones for indoor use thanks jc

Generally most drones would require you to fly them in open spaces outdoors, but certainly the smaller drones can be flown indoors.
