Excellent Flight Performance and Image Quality but Poor Remote Controller and Flight Time
The drone has a great portable size and is capable of shooting stunning pictures and videos, ideal for travelling. There're plenty useful flight modes for beginners as well as more experienced drone users to create interesting drone footage. However, the flight time is way less than 21 mins as claimed, it's usually between 14-16 mins if you operate the drone safely. The propeller noise is pretty loud and aggressive, it takes time to get used to it, but it might annoy other people. The remote controller tends to play up after a long period of us...e, the control of left stick and right stick or even gimbal wheel would interference with each other. I experienced two problematic remote controllers and there're many reviews and questions about this issue on drone forums and Youtube. The RC issue is very serious becuase it is essential for flying a drone. Since the RC is not sold separately as a part, there's no option other than sending it back to DJI for repair, which means waiting time and money.
A lot to learn, but well worth it!
Looks so simple, but really is a lot to learn and study before you are up and away. Not just a matter of straight out of the box and your flying. The instruction manual provided is very basic. I had to go online to find resources to help put it all into place. I am new at using a drone, so was somewhat shocked at how, not basic, this is. But don't let that stop you, now that I am getting my head around it, been for several flights, and getting more comfortable with the functions.....but so much yet to learn. Wow, what a machine, and all the f...eatures that it can present, will open up the view immensely. The quality of footage, with a top micro sd card is exceptional. And the photos, top quality. Don't be scared, just read, be patient, plenty of time to learn. And enjoy the experience, one step at a time. Join, a DJI forum and will learn so much.
