Pros: Low cost, great handling, surprisingly crash resistant, everything you need except the transmitter which can be bought separately for about $10. Even did a flip once by accident.
Cons: YouTube videos say the camera restricts handling, cuts the battery life in half, and isn't very good resolution. I strap a Moebius camera which has a self contained battery only if necessary. Definitely an outdoor toy. It will fly in a slight breeze but that makes it harder to hover in place.
Other Thoughts: Not really much to it. There's a small circuit board in the middle above the battery bay. It then has wires that go out to the lights and motors. The high end drones cost up to 20 times as much mainly due to the larger size, GPS and gimballed camera mount. I bought the same package from e**y and even though it advertised it shipped from China it arrived in 3 days with a Los Angeles address. You can also buy 800mAh spare batteries separately which will last 50% longer. The range is supposed to be farther but after about 200 ft it's hard to see which end is forward and makes it harder to control.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: As advertised they have a sizeable charge out of the box. Maintain their charge longer than my previous battery .
Cons: Bought them when they were on sale Dec 7, 2015. Have never received the rebate. On the status page it said they never received the rebate materials. Sent a copy of the materials before the deadline. Status page never changed.
Other Thoughts: These batteries are relatively expensive compared to others. The rebate would have made them closer in price. Would suspect there are only two or three battery makers and Fujitsu just puts their name on these. Will buy other batteries next time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap, large storage, dependable.
Cons: Clicking noise when in operation. It's meant for servers, get over it if you're too cheap to buy a consumer drive.
Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd enterprise drive used for backup. Bought mine from NeweggFlash as the backup for my main computer. A few months later the WD boot drive crashed and was unrecoverable. Copied the data to a new boot drive and got back to business.
Will never have anything bad to say about this drive.
