an actual owner would be awesome to hear from. the reviews where they were erratic and crashing were older and there have been several firmware updates since. it would be interesting to see how the firmware updates have improved the drone.

Are these worth $300? Not a chance. I'd say $140 is about the right price. As compared to several other drones on the market right now, these are more toys than anything else. There is no gimble and stabilization is done via software. Maintaining a connection is also pretty sketchy.

This is a nice toy to fly in a park every so often. It would be a good entry level drone to try.

They suck - but those who want to hack them and extend range (lots of mods) may do alright.

Those who just want to fly....stay away and save up your money or else get a toy that works.

Wife got me one for my birthday. Really excited as it will be my first drone. It also seems very hackable. Parrot makes the SDK available so that you can develop your own apps, etc. I'm already thinking of things I'd like to try!

It looks like you can put together your own controller with extended wifi range using a PS3 controller and a wifi extender for around $40. Google "ps3 xiaomi parrot" for some YouTube videos. I couldn't figure out how to link them directly on my phone. Sorry.
