Have had 2 of these drones. They are notorious for flying away once transmission is lost. Thats what happened with both of mine within a month.

That's how I lost mine. But isn't that typical behavior for these toy quads - to fly away when signal is lost?

There's a really good reviewer on YouTube called quadcopter 101. He reviews dozens of them and purposely shuts off the remote to test how the drone would behave if the signal was lost. Great source for info on beginner to advanced quads.

Not all drones keep on flying when the signal is lost. Many will drop instead.

Deal is over I guess ....but did have a comment on this quad, I'm not a fan of the proprietary battery boxes it takes. That makes buying good cheap or better batteries a lot harder.

The X5C-1 (granted without the auto hover etc) can take any battery out there. The Cheerson CW4 is a decent quad with excellent features around this same price, it doesn't have as much range but likely a better camera image and it does have a generic battery design.

I don't fly the CW4 fuselage, but made a X5C-1 with it's electronics so it does have auto hover etc. it's a great quad and more fun to fly than my bigger drone.
