    I rated this product good because it dose not have a protechtive cage like it should have. So if you crash into a wall you better have extra parts. also the battery only last about 15 min so you might want to buy two batteries. But on the other had I find this very easy to control and a lot of fun.

    Don't know why anyone would rate this 1 star. Only thing I have

    Don't know why anyone would rate this 1 star. Only thing I have to gripe about is the 2 hour charge time for each battery. 

    Other than that this drone is the best thing since ArduCopter. The app pretty much flies it for you and I have taken some awesome selfies with this. 

    I honestly don't know what I did before this. (Probably held out my phone like a neanderthal) but no, seriously, this rocks, get one

    The product description is a lie. There in no longer "intuitive control" for iPHone/iPad at all. Any review before late March, 2013 should be ignored. It used to be great, now it is a paperweight for Apple users.

    The AR.Drone is an amazing product that is crammed full of technology. One button take off and landing, video cameras that stream video over WiFi to your Nook or iPhone, I can even record the video and upload to YouTube. This product is so cool that I will be purchasing two as gifts this Xmas. Highly recommended although don't forget to get yourself an extra battery.
