I paid I believe 600-700 for this drone (minus the backpack) last November! First time drone flyer and this model is so easy to use. It's got a mode where you can preprogram a flight and with the press of a button it will go off and do exactly what you asked. I absolutely love it. Seeing this comes with backpack, it feels like a good deal to me! I paid 100 for the Parrot backpack alone.

Ps - not a huge fan of the VR mode but it's ok. I recommend using a phone since the GPS it provides when plugged into the SkyController gives you more flight information (altitude for instance).

EDIT: just noticed this also includes the in app purchase 'Follow Me'. This mode will make your drone follow a certain target automatically in the sky. The cost of that in app purchase is $20. Happy to answer any Qs if any has any!

In your experience, how long will the drone fly on a single charge, and what is the typical recharge time? Thanks Smilie

I want to say I get 30 minutes out of a battery whipping it around and recording. I'd say it takes about two hours to charge (the same goes for the controller). The controllers battery lasts longer than the drone battery but I can't quantify how many flights I get out of a controller's charge Frown.

I was gifted a parrot bebop drone for xmas last year (I think) and it's the biggest POS ever. Flies off, wifi disconnects constantly, very limited range, does not return home, camera is blurry, batteries wont hold a charge after one use. This definitely eliminated any interest in drones that I had previously.

I have a bebop2 and really like it. Don't have the controller or glasses and find it smooth and responsive controlling from iPhone. Takes decent video as well. Had fewer issues with this one as opposed to a 3DR solo
