“It’s really good and durable.”—Amazon buyer comment

“I’ve had this for about eight months, and fly it around about once per week. I have the little “training wheels” guard that you can buy separately, and I haven’t broken anything yet despite crashing a lot. This is a fun, durable thing.” —Amazon buyer comment

“This thing is amazing! It flies awesome, is easy to fly if you’re a beginner, and with one click of the stick puts it in expert mode (which is incredible). I highly recommend this and would absolutely buy another if/when I have a horrific crash from flying it like a douche.” —Amazon buyer comment
