    Comments about AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter (Blue/Orange):

    Easy, out of the box set up. Great video quality for a low end drone with camera. I also purchased the extra battery for more flight fun. Wish there was an option for even more battery life.
    Waiting for the new model to come out this fall which I am certain to buy!!

      Comments about AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter (Blue/Orange):

      What a great thing to get initiated into the hobby! It's very easy to use, and after charging the battery and loading the app into your smartphone or pad, it really is ready to fly.

      It has a lot of features that the 'big boys' have, but it is still an entry level unit. The battery life is about average for electric quad copters, so it is highly recommended you purchase a high-capacity battery that will utilize the charger that comes with the AR.Drone.

      It does have a somewhat limited range for control, so you'll have to watch out for that. And yeah, you will crash it (multiple times!), so spare parts will be something you'll also stock up on. But this is true for pretty much any remote control air-craft you purchase.

      It is fun to use and usefull at the same time. A good way to get your feet wet in the world of RC Quad-Copters.

      Comments about AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter (Blue/Orange):

      This works great outside and it's fun to fly around the yard. The camera has a surprisingly large range and has really good quality video. The outside cover that comes with the product to use indoors is very flimsy and broke on the first use (new one costs $45!, I will not be buying that part). The rest of the drone is pretty durable though, have crashed it outside lots of times and still runs great, battery life is not that great, but backup battery pretty afforable. I'd recommened for the great video quality and ease of use.

        Comments about AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter (Blue/Orange):

        I used the AR.Drone quadcopter to take a video of some roof repairs that we had done, just to verify that the repairs were OK. Worked great, and the built-in self-protection logic goes a long way in preventing damage while learning to fly it. I would recommend buying the higher capacity battery to extend flight time.
