Mine just said bye bye other day. Wind gush took it out of the range from Bluetooth and it flew to the moon.

Have to use cell phone app to fly it, drone connects to the app via wifi - so the range is reported to be about 35 yards - reviews on Amazon are pretty telling.

Does anyone here have experience with it, and know what happens if it gets out of range? Is it bye-bye drone? If this thing goes 20 yards high, and 20 yards ahead, will it try to come back, or keep going til the battery dies?

Worth $40? I bought the Syma that was on here a few weeks ago for $15 and it was a lot of fun til the wind took it out of my neighborhood...

That is the worst!! You in for one for $39.99? - Thinking I might give this a go but refurbished scares me.

I bought one of these for hundreds of dollars when they were new. This will fly away. It's large and requires FAA registration, but has such a restricted range and no GPS to return to you, that it's essentially designed to fly away from you. If you get it, fly it in a big indoor space as a toy. If you want a real drone, get a DJI or something similar w/ GPS capability.

Can they? Probably. Would I want them to? Nope.

What does it mean "Easily updates to meet FAA Requirements"?

What has to be updated??

FAA UAV registration law was overturned. I bought one. They're easier to get than a library card.
I believe only pilots using drones for commercial purposes need any sort of registration.

I'm wrong. law changed back.
