Buy the F181 – http://amzn.to/2kkUn1u (*it now comes with 2 batteries and no case)
Trouble shooting the app.
Sometimes the camera doesn’t connect to your phone and here’s some tips that’ll hopefully help.
1. Try connecting to the Drones WIFI camera before you start the app.
2. To save your video clips, make sure to stop the recording on the app. Also, on mine the camera/video button don’t work on the controller. You can only record from your phone.
The camera quality isn’t great but it’s average for a low cost WIFI camera.
The range however was really good. Both the transmitter and WIFI range were better than most drones I’ve flown. As you can see from the map, the measured distance it flew was over 270 feet. You will get better range when you’re away from houses because WIFI signals will cut down your signal strength.
I noticed flight times of around 6 minutes. It has 4 speed modes. In slow mode it’s very controllable inside and with the altitude hold you only have to worry about 2 dimensions which makes it much easier to fly as a beginner and if you have enough room inside you can even fly room to room through your smart phone using a live feed from the camera.
After you’ve mastered flying in slow mode, you can shed a lot of weight from this quadcopter by removing the landing gear, camera, and blade guards and F181 will fly much faster.
I really like the size of the F181 it’s Not too big and not too small, it’s great for both outdoors and indoors.
