Fun to fly indoors or on a VERY calm day in your back yard. Some things to be aware of, though: These aren't really great for "new" fliers. They are very small and fast, and the controller is very tiny and toy like. If you are new- you are better off getting one of the larger inexpensive quads. Syma makes really good ones around $50. You will find flying the CX-10 to be a lot more fun after you gain more experience with larger ones. (That's been my experience, anyway.) This doesn't come with a blade guard, and you probably don't want one. The ones that are available add way too much bulk and make it much more difficult to fly. These are tiny- they won't do much, if any, damage when the run into something (including you), and replacement props are cheap. You shouldn't fly in an area with anything fragile anyway. They are a blast to fly around an office, rec. room, garage, etc. They will fly outdoors, but with nothing more than the slightest breeze or it will quickly blow out of range. Make sure to switch it on while it is on a level surface, or follow the instructions to calibrate the gyros every time before you launch it. You shouldn't need to mess with trim at all.

If I had reviewed this item the first day I received it I would have given it 1 star. I almost sent it back but instead took some time to mess with it and figure out the controls and it turned out to be a very fun little toy, with a few shortcomings that I think are appropriate for the price points. Here's what I like and don't like about it... DON'T LIKE - The instructions are terrible. Poorly translated English and some of the diagrams are incorrect. For example, on one diagram it shows the controller and has left and right stick labeled and the same diagram is below it has the labels reversed. - Really, these instructions suck. Example. for 2 beeps it calls that a "Daily Double" for three beeps it calls it "Daily Double Double"??? It amazes me they can't get someone to translate these better but my guess is they simply don't care to. - Does not hover well. If you get this locked in jussst right it will hover for a bit. However any movement will send it diving to the ground, learning to work the throttle to keep it going is tricky. LIKE - It's fun. Plain and simple once you learn it it's a fun little quad. - On pro setting it's pretty responsive. Surprisingly responsive, I can zip this little thing out and back and it snaps with the quickness. - Flips and s***, bro. It does flips, which are pretty sweet. - My dog hates it. Now that I've learned how to fly it I can really annoy her with it. She barks and snaps at it, she's Godzilla swiped it out of the air a couple times. It's part of our daily routine now. SOME TIPS - If this is your very first nano you'll need to get orientation down. With the little helicopters and stuff it's easy to tell front and back. Since all 4 sides of this are the same you have to get used to looking at the lights. I find it easiest to control when I have the 2 red (rear) lights facing me directly so I know front and back dead on. - Start off on novice setting. It will zip and zing on pro but you'll smash it up if you try that to start with. It's pretty durable just learn it's limitations. Even on the pro setting it's got a bit of drift so don't cut your movements too close. - Use this to torture your pets. I highly recommend this. Should work with both cats and dogs. Warning though, the little blades can sting if you hit them so be careful.

I decided to get this from China for around $16 and what a bargain that was! It's very smooth at flying and very accurate controls. Of course after having fun with it, I decided to do some modding to make it even better... to be honest, it wasn't very worth modding it at least right away. I noticed right away that the USB cord is charging the battery at 0.5 amps/hour which is too much for the little 100mah battery to handle. I recommend if you do mod it, to charge the battery around 100-200mah. Charging at 200mah will take about 20 minutes of charging. I knew that it wasn't going to last me, so I started opening things up, moving things around and got to where I wanted. I got my controller to have it's antenna sticking out for longer range... in the process my switch completely fell apart. It took me about 20 minutes to figure out how to put it together when I realize it's easier just to solder the connection points together and take out the batteries when I'm done. Still, having the longer range is nice. The second mod was attaching a JST cable to the battery points, so I can monitor and charge the battery through my programmable charger. What I've noticed, besides that the original charging cable charges at 0.5amps per hour, is that the battery drops at 3.6v when it starts flashing the blue lights as a sign of low voltage which is pretty nice. My neighbor's toy quadcopter drops to 3.1v before it'll start notifying you which is awful. Another thing is that ANY additional weight to this quadcopter will noticeably decrease it's performance. I mean by cables, extra solder, etc. I was originally thinking of adding a 150mah battery from E-flite as I trust their batteries with having a long life span. But... I would probably burn out the motors and/or lose a lot of performance in the quadcopter... so I'm stuck with the 100mah cheap lipos anyways. It wasn't as hard as putting the quadcopter apart and back together as the controller because the switch fell apart, but it was challenging trying to sandwich it all together with the soldered cable, so I ziptied it shut. I figured the lack of screws will make up for the weight of the zip ties. I used my soldering gun to melt the plastic, so that the cable can stick out... don't really recommend as the fumes are toxic and it's very hard to clean the soldering gun... luckily I was outside, held my breath and rubbed it to death in my brass soldering cleaner. Anyways... seeing how the 100mah battery will probably be cut short after typically three months or so, I guess it doesn't matter how well I treat the lipo in terms of keeping it around 3.7-3.8 for storage or making sure it doesn't go below 3.0v... so that wire mod is probably not going to serve me well, so if you're thinking about it, just don't. It might make it last a little longer as if you charge it at a slower rate, it'll keep it's capacity longer. The only part of this quadcopter is worth modding is the antenna(s) for longer range. Just be careful about the switch as it'll fall out easily. If it does, just solder the duel two connections together on the left side while the board is facing down. Solder the two HORIZONTAL connections. Just tinker it around a bit, you'll get it. Anyways, it's very fun. It only last me about 3:30 minutes to fly and takes about 20 minutes to charge through my JST cable. Normally it takes like 5 minutes to charge, but I rather not to prevent having to replace the battery. I still haven't flown it in advance mode which is probably going to be very hard flying for it's size and punch. It wasn't that hard to fly in gyro mode in the beginning as I have practice with a S250 size quadcopter with a KK2.1 board on... board. haha The funny thing is with this quadcopter and if the props bent, just bend them back. No need to worry about vibrations, or the prop breaking in mid-air and the quad smashing into property or someone cause it's so TINY. :D Oh, one last thing. Usually after a crash, you may need to reset it's gyros by turning off and on the quadcopter. Be sure not to fly it around animals or people at a close range. It's not going to break skin, but you may poke out an eye or make someone rather unhappy.

If this is your first ever nano quadcopter, be weary, flying these little guys are not easy! But, after a few flights, you'll get the trick. The cheers on cx-10 is the best nano quadcopter on the market. It's size is great for indoor and some outdoor conditions. The control is great, and you can easily do tricks using the joysticks. I've noticed because of the size, you may have to re-trim on every flight, but that's no problem, the provided controller has everything you need. I've noticed in 25 minutes of charge, i get 7-10 minutes of flight, which isn't bad for the sized. The one con I've found is that even though the provided controller has everything you need, it is really, REALLY tiny, so people with bigger hands may want to op for a bigger 2.4ghz controller. But hands down, I recommend this product to everyone, especially for kids!

"Good for first time flyers" this is only true because the drone is cheap. Really, the smaller the drone, the harder it tends to be to control. That being said, this drone flies pretty well for its size. Unfortunately if you are a first time flyer like I was, you may want to practice over something soft until you learn how to properly land. I basically flew this drone every chance I could the first week I had it crashed it at least 10x each session. It broke after about 6 days of doing this, I opened it up and what happened was one of the wires for the motor disconnected from the circuit board. Its actually an easy fix if you have a soldering iron, screwdriver and some patience but I just decided to save it for parts and order a new one. I recommend this drone but just know that even though a 5-6 foot drop indoors may not seem like much, it is a lot for a small cheap drone like this. If you take care of it while getting over the learning curve and are possibly willing to get hands on if a motor stops working you can make your $12 go a long time.

This micro quad copter, and let me emphasize MICRO (This thing is extremely small), is one of the best little quads you could possibly buy. Came within about two weeks after ordering and was extremely excited upon its arrival. The first flight went well, not the most stable quad but what can you expect from something so small. The recharge time is wonderful, under 15 minutes which is great for rapid flights. On about the tenth flight though I was flew straight into a wall and sadly broke a prop. Luckily, with this they ship you and extra 4 props in the box. So far no complaints except after about 2 days of ordering the company shipping it called me and told me that the orange color was out of stock and that they wanted to ship me the green variant. This was fine for me just would have rather had orange, this is why they get 4/5 stars.

This little quad is a great introduction, I think, to the hobby (I say having not played with anything bigger). I use it indoors and have had a blast with it. Very responsive. Not perfect, but well worth it for >$20. I will say buy extra rotors. Also that it fits in a dogs mouth. These two observations may be related. Getting a blade guard is worth it to; tends to flip on crashes. Worst thing I've had happen is getting a hair wrapped around a rotor. Played with it daily for about two weeks, nothing but fun. Makes me want to move onto bigger ones.

These things are awesome but they are not very well constructed. I should also say that I am a decent pilot with these things too with a few years of experience with them and not a noob just starting out. I bought one 2 weeks ago and already threw it away because the plastic motor locking tabs break very easily and when that happens the motors work themselves loose and the little teeny tiny wires that are connecting them to the board come loose and then that's it for the quad unless you have the capability to solder wires that small to a connection that small on a board that small (I don't). I am ordering another one though because I keep two of them on standby at all times because they are really that much fun to fly. The other one I have now already has one motor tab that is cracked so it's only a matter of time before that one gets replaced too. I'll probably keep replacing them until I have had enough of them breaking but they are so much fun!

I've had it for about 2 weeks now and it's nice. I bought it mostly as a cat toy since my cat LOVES bugs. She is entranced by it when it hovers around and goes up to the ceiling. But, as pointed out... it's VERY difficult to control and consequently, I've run into walls, ceilings, doors, stairs, hallways, furniture and... yes... cats. It comes with some spare propellers but I've broken all but 2 of the spares so far. Once I'm out of them, that'll be the end of it. All in all, I've paid more for a cat toy that the cat has completely ignored, so the fact that it is still gets her attention is a win for the $20 I paid.

Full little toy. The flying took a while to get used, and was a little easier outside since there wasn't as many things to bump into. Crashed it a ton of times and never broke the rotors. It also came with a spare pair of rotors, so that helped. I also liked that it charges via USB instead of plugging into the remote and draining those batteries like a helicopter I have. After a couple weeks something happened and the quadcopter would always pull hard to one side only allowing it to barrel roll. Ironically around the same time I was contacted by the seller (KoCo-Go) to see how I was enjoying it. I explained what happened and they asked me to send a short video of the problem so they could troubleshoot. I did, and they couldn't fix so they offered a partial refund. Prior to hearing from them I had chalked it up as a loss,so that was good news. It's a fun toy, and good starter, but I'd pay a little more and get one that's a little bigger and has blade guards.

I bought two. One of them has a propeller that won't spin after first crash, I'll probably take it apart and see what's going on. The other one flies just fine without any issues. Comes with a couple spare propellers. The instructions are semi-decent, enough to give you what you need to know. The one thing missing from the instructions is the flying direction, Took some trial and error to determine what the "Front" of the drone was so I could determine which way to move the stick. I've recalibrated a couple of times and there is still a bit of a drift, probably not the drone's fault as I'll admit I've not used a perfectly level surface every time. The instructions have suggestions on how to improve it over time. Battery life is good, they charge pretty quick, and the second drone takes a pretty good beating. I let me 3 year old fly it around and she has run it in to walls, ceilings, her sister, and all kinds of things and it just gets up and goes again with a little tweaking. For the price and what you get, I'd probably buy it again. Good place to start if you've never flown before.

Awesome little quadcopter to learn how to fly and to play around with while watching TV. You should definitely buy one of the prop guards with it because you WILL crash and break the propellers if you don't have one. You might say "oh that's fine, I can just replace the propellers" Wrong. The replacement propellers out there are not the same as the standard propellers. They are much noisier and a lot more flimsy. I have also broken the frame from crashing it a couple times. Now the copter doesn't fly correctly anymore. I'm not sure why but it will be flying and then just randomly decide to flip upside down and crash. I just ordered a new one, and since I am really good at flying them now I expect this new one to hold up for a long time.

The moment this toy first lifted off the ground I had a feeling that I had started a new interest that was going to end up costing me some money as I upgrade to bigger units. I purchased this one to see if I enjoyed flying drones, and it is enough to help me decide. The unit takes off with a high-pitched whine, like a loud wasp. Immediately I realized that there is very little to aid you in stabilizing the craft, which I expected. It will survive quite a few crashes, but I imagine it would have burned through replacement blades quickly if I didn't learn how to avoid walls and obstacles quickly. Given the price and the size, its a great unit for learning how to fly for the first time indoors (I don't expect this unit to perform well outside). It has enough control that I am able to practice landing the mini-drone on a CD case. It is a bit smaller than I expected. The radius from the center to each rotor is about the diameter of a US quarter. There are only two gripes I have with the toy. The charging cable does not fit well into the charging port, causing it to disconnect if anything touches it. There's a little balancing game that I play with the cable and the mini-drone hoping that the connection will stay when I lift my hands away. The other is the way in which the controller rotates the drone. The left stick is used to control the rotor speed, which sends the mini-drone up or down. The same stick is used to rotate the drone in the air. Whenever I try to rotate the drone, I end up changing the rotor speed and then have to recover from that change. I'm not sure how much this will improve as I get better with controlling the drone since it is very small and inherently sensitive. If you break the blades be careful what you purchase to replace them. I purchased ones that are stronger than those made by the manufacturer. That put more pressure on the actual motor when crashes occurred. Instead of the blade breaking, the motor ended up bending, causing the drone to become unflyable. After trying to fix it, and more crashes, a motor ended up breaking. BEWARE OF STRONGER REPLACEMENT BLADES.

Most fun I've had for under $20. It takes a little while to get the hang of controlling this little phenomenon but now I'm flying at the highest sensitivity and it's a blast, super responsive, and still very challenging since I really only control it from behind it, I haven't even begun using the directional control (rotation) much. I chase my kids around the house and it has taken literally dozens of crashes and it's still buzzing. The battery only takes about 5 minutes to recharge (after a five minute cool down). I did have to take apart to re-solder a motor wire since there is a fairly sharp circle at the bottom of the motor cage where the wire was run, probably due to my many crashes so I'm not faulting the manuf. I'm already planning on giving to all my kids for Christmas and I've ordered another for myself since I'm slowly destroying this one with my crazy flying.

This is probably the funnest $16 I've ever spent. I can definitely see why drone racing is an emerging sport! I've only flown it indoors but I'm told it's a respectable outdoor flier too. Here's my experience with it so far: Pros *Much easier to fly than I was expecting...relatively. It's a far cry from the nigh-uncontrollable crusty old RC helicopters of my youth, but still needs some practice. Within a half hour I got a feel for the controls and I was zipping it around the house with little issue. *Durable. I've crashed it many times while learning and I haven't broken a prop yet (with no guard). I flew it into the toilet once and it emerged unscathed. The mainboard is nice and thick with no big cutouts in it like some other microquads, so I don't expect that to break any time soon. The only damage to the shell is a cracked clip. I reinforced all the clips with a little dot of epoxy. Not sure about long term longevity of it though. *It's fairly stable, yet maneuverable for what it is. The rates feel well-chosen; the minimum is good for precision flying and landing (impressing people by landing it in their palms!), and maximum gives it a surprising amount of get-up-and-go. The flips are a ton of fun and always execute flawlessly. *The mind boggles at how great a deal it is for how much technology is packed into it. Cons *It's difficult to yaw without also changing the throttle. I would have prefered yaw shoulder buttons with sticks this small. *The exposed motor wires. The insulation on a couple of them has worn away. It was caused by a combination of vibration causing chafing, crashes, and shearing from applying a prop guard (which I stopped using because of this reason). It would be nice to have them hidden in the motor holding part of the lower shell. I would try to fix this myself but I'm pretty sure my hamfistedness would make it worse. *The charger is very cheap. I dropped it about waist-height onto hardwood and the brittle housing shattered. I MacGyver'd it back together with more epoxy. Inside, there is not much intelligence to it (a single SOT23 package and some passives on a flatflex), so I wouldn't trust it not to overcharge the battery. *Speaking of the battery, it's non-removable. It and the motors will wear out eventually, and it's less trouble to just get a new quad than to replace them, which is unfortunate. For that reason, among others noted here, if this one breaks down I'm torn between getting another of these because of the tiny adorable factor, and a Syma X11. Some tips for noobs: *The cardinal rule for reducing damage is to throttle off if you're about to crash. It saves the props and the motor shafts. It was about to fall anyway, throttling down saves it from being thrashed about. It's so light that it shouldn't take too much damage, unless it was really high up and it falls on concrete or something. *The trim buttons don't seem to do much. If you notice it drifting, land on a level surface, put the left stick to the lower left and the right stick to the upper left. This will recalibrate the accelerometer, the blue lights will flash if it worked. *It doesn't recover well from flips from a hover, give it some vertical speed before doing a flip. *Don't be afraid to give it a good push of throttle with taking off. Else it will skitter across the ground and make it harder to correct, and because it's so light it might catch something and flip. *When you're learning, keep it the same orientation to you. Only use the yaw when you turn relative to the drone. If you can't wrap your head around this, you might want to get a CX-10A with headless mode, but it holds you back. *It's stable but not perfect. It won't do everything for you, expect to make continual small adjustments to the sticks to keep it in a hover. The throttle is the hard part, it's much more sensitive than the pitch stick, especially on low rates. *It's easier to set your throttle to what you want before you start moving around, so you don't need to worry about two planes of movement at once. UPDATE: Having flown it at least twice a day for a week, including outdoors, I have more to say about it. It's much easier and more freeing to fly it outside, when it can go around at max rates without smacking into things. Surprisingly good at fighting wind. The range is pretty good, I can get it far enough away that I can't do visual orientation anymore. It just drops out of the sky when signal is lost though, which is unfortunate. The clip broke finally broke off, but it looks to be mostly cosmetic because the screws are holding the shell together just fine. It was unbalanced and drifty after this, so I removed the opposing clip and it's fine now. I saw online that the motor wires could be tucked into the inside of the motor well (since they're hollow, strange that they made a provision for this but they didn't bother to do it in the factory), so I took it apart to do this. The bottom shell took some wrestling to get free of the mainboard and I accidentally pulled off a few motor wires. It wasn't as hard as I thought to solder them back on. I managed to hide the wires, and now the motors are more snug in their mounts so there's less drift. I think one of the motors is going loose, it makes a shrill sound at certain pitch/roll settings and it shakes and shimmies slightly during hover. Ah well. Once it goes out I'll get spare motors, shell, and batteries.

This is what it claims to be - a tiny, self-stabilized quad-rotor RC flying machine. It seems no better or worse than its competitors. I can't speak to what anyone else did or will receive, but what I received was a box with Cheerson branding, and a unit which is radio-compatible with my existing Cheerson CX10 - so most likely it also has the "blue" circuit board and XN297 chip. Probably the biggest deficiency of this is the tiny transmitter supplied, which makes accurate control challenging, at least for anyone with adult-sized hands. Some people yank off the top of the sticks and add extensions. Others use software that makes larger traditional RC transmitters able to control this. Given the small transmitter, I'm not entirely sure I could recommend this to someone who had never flow anything before - there is a degree of challenge. But if you can fly any other quad or helicopter, this should be an easy transition. At well under an ounce in weight it has fairly good crash survivability, but you will eventually break propellers. Also be extremely careful when plugging in the charging socket - on my other one that quickly detached from the board forcing disassembly for delicate repair, but as that was from a different supplier I can't say if it will be a problem with this one or not.

This is my first drone I've ever bought and ever flown. It took me only 5 minutes of getting used to the mechanics of piloting it before I could start doing the automatic flips (used by pressing in the right joy stick). This thing may be tiny but its loads of fun! The battery runs for an average of 6 minutes, which seems short; however, it takes about 10 minutes to charge. Just take a quick bathroom/drink/chore break and come back for more. The only complaint I have is that it only comes with one spare propellor for each side (4 in total). Update: The drone has two different types of propellers and comes with two of each (at least it's supposed to); however, I received 3 of the same and 1 different. Sadly, I must order new propellors from a third party so I can keep up the fun. Other than that, I am completely satisfied with this drone, especially for under $20!

Easy to fly little quad. I bought this one to replace another one that I had. This little guy would be very sturdy if the wiring for the motors weren't barely soldered to the control board. Light crashes easily causes the wires to break loose. I had to re-solder nearly every connection on the first one after multiple light crashes which aren't always avoidable. I have a protective cage on this one which is great to protect it when it crashes upside down. I highly recommend this to someone who is looking for a decent micro quad for the price.

This mini quad copter is a great deal of fun. However there are a few caveats to owning it. I recommend buying spare propellers and the propeller guard if you are new to flying quads. While the CX-10 is a very tough little quadcopter, it's propellers will eventually bend and break, and will need replacing. It comes with 4, but 4 will probably only get you through a week, as you will be playing with the copter constantly. Another problem is that if it takes a big whack, the wires for it's motors tend to break out of their solder joints. The solder joints are rather poor, and will need to be redone, otherwise the copter will tend to spin on it's own and it becomes impossible to control. So if you, or someone you know is not at least a hobbiest solderer, you will be in trouble the first time you smack your cx-10 into the wall at high speed (on accident). However if you can, and you do have spare propellers, the CX-10 is a great deal of fun, and is a great way to get into this amazing hobby.

I have a Phantom 2 purchased from Amazon and love it but... This Quad Smokes! It is a Challenge to Fly but its doable. I can't believe they can sell them so cheap. I have several that will be given for Christmas. It will fly for 5 to 8 minutes on one charge. Charging by USB takes about 15 minutes. It also comes with extra props (marked A & B) 2 each. I'd suggest any one wanting a Phantom to buy a couple and learn to fly. (Yes, the Phantom 2 is Easier to fly but this will give you a feel for the controls on something more expensive.)
