OMG, I am no drone expert but this thing is a pile of crap. I bought it a while ago basically for the free flypad (which this one does not have) and it stopped responding to my controller and flew away into a tree and broke. My wife caught it on video, of me running like a crazy person to catch it. I curse this drone every time I see it, lol!

This is a great drone. It is really easy to use. It's the coolest mini drone I own. Definitely a home run buying this for my kids.

You must of had a dud, bought some for gifts when they were on sale at att and Wally, no complaints from anyone and still running strong. I don't think you can beat this drone for quality nor price. You should be able to find the fly pad on eBay, snag it when a coupon comes out and you will be good.

If i recall, i think it was a refurb from ebay. the wings were so light, the slightest wind took it away. And then it apparently went out of controller range and I had to chase it down before it went over a fence. In hindsight, pretty funny, not at the time though. I seem to remember paying $30 for the flypad and the drone, but not 100% sure . At this price, probably worth it even if just for the extra battery!

I seem to recall between 20-30 on ebay. I actually ended up returning it all (due to the issue i described above). I also have one of their other mini drones (similar to this one [amazon.com]) which I like. I found a AWD deal on the flypad for like $14 a while ago, and now am happy Smilie I had set a CCC alert for the flypad, and it took about a year, but I finally was able to snag a used one for cheap.

i bought one of those nightdrones but ended up getting a defected one where the back rotor stayed on constantly (looked it up and appears crashing is primary cause) making take offs difficult ect but anytime buying renewed there is an understanding its a dice roll and for products between 10-25 bucks its a chance im usually willing to take but damn it seems like i have pretty bad luck with refurbs/renews but otherwise the drone looked pretty neat and fun.
i will have to keep my eye on a sale for the controller will it work with non parrot drones?
Thanks for the 411

Phantom/spark sale would be nice hopefully BFSmilie
Walmarts near me were out of stock for the recent Ymmv post

I think that you can only use it for the parrot drones. However, you can use most bluetooth enabled controllers to control the drones. I had purchased a MOGA Hero a while ago for that purpose. However, the company (and their software) went belly up and it stopped working. It was a pain to get it to pair , and the parrot one works much better (for this line of drones at least).

For $10 this is a deal just to have spare parts. A spare battery was almost as much as the bundle with controller at the time I bought one.

That being said, I have two of these...
