  1. Have one. First GPS drone bought after much research. At $150 it is really great flier. I have sent it pretty far and it returns to home amazingly. The FPV lag is a legit gripe as I have seen in the reviews. but after on accidental landing on a neighbors roof upside down, It is still goin strong.
