Sass, London Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great fun to fly around! I've flowen it 3 times and still need much practice, but I'm getting there. Front camera quality is quite good & records straight to your phone or memory stick. In general a very cool product.
Bad points:
The battery takes about an hour to charge and flying time is only 10mins, which is quite annoying. So purchase of an additional battery is reccomended. I've had afew minor crashes & it's still fine, although I'm not sure how many more it could take before needing repair. I had afew connection problems to the phone. But easily fixed by restarting.
