Where it says what it can do it forgot to mention bring down an airliner. I honestly think they should only be used by professionals, just my view.

8 min flight time (if you're lucky) for 130 mins recharge time!

I'd love to have one but flight times need improving for me to fork out 50 for one of these.

49.99! Doesn't even mention if out of range will automatically return to starting place. Which is pritty useless when flying it and it just pops out of range!
A reasonable quality drone will set you back between 1000 to 2500 or more, so I quess you get what you pay for!

it's a toy, and comparing it to a high end product at 1000 + is no comparison, it is made by syma and the same model is being sold by claas olsen for a 120.00 so if you want to compare it, then do so with similar priced items,
