7 min is actually ok for these quads. Some last 5 min. The motors are "brush motors" meaning they get hot kinda quick. Heat is bad and ruins them. The battery is the size it is (300mah) because of consideration for the battery weight plus how long the motors are recommended to run. When you run out of juice the quad needs to cool the motors. Basically having it up for over 10 min would put stress on the motors (you have a bigger heavier battery now causing strain and heat). If you want a longer flight time. Example 20 min. Your looking at a whole different world of quads with "brushless motors". They are 200 and up. So 15 bucks is awesome for this quad.. learn play kill it. Then get another.

Fantastic deal at $15.

Extra batteries and five-way charger recommended:

I bought the one with the camera. The first time I flew it the weather instantly changed (rain and wind). I tried to fly it back to me but the motors were not strong enough and it blew away. I never saw it again and was so sad for a few months.

Are parts available for this? Is this the same as X5C-1 but without camera?

Thanks! Heck, worth $15 if it provides an hour of fun.

Jumped on it before the code gets pulled for 1/2 off, Go Eagles.

Good beginner drones. Add a cheap fpv camera and goggles for a better experience (and easier to fly IMO). Buying one for parts.

if this is as good as the X5C but without the (admittedly really crappy) camera then this is pretty good. The controller is much better than any of the ultra-budget quadcopters (altho still benefits from an easy antenna modification) and it flies outdoors pretty darn good even with wind.

Good deal on this. Like the X5 but no (useless) camera. Great trainer drone; I started with an X5 before I had the guts to fly my Phantom 4.
