Smart drone for a good value.
It took me a while to get used to the controls, coming from a racing drone, but once you internalize them, you can really focus on framing a good video and even turn your attention away from the drone completely for a while with confidence that it's fine flying on it's own.
I like the follow mode, and the ability to point the camera at the controller or wizard with the flick of a switch. However, follow mode cannot follow altitude changes, so you have to do those manually.
Flight time is pretty long compared to a racing drone, clearly.
The drone and controller did not come properly configured. I had to re-pair the controller and camera, using a wifi password (1234567890) I found on the forums. Additionally, it seems there are two camera profiles to choose from and something-PRO works better. It would have been nice if Vertigo Drones had configured this ahead of time so that the device would be truly ready to fly.
The camera does not record any audio, which came as a surprise, but I wasn't going to use it anyways. Video quality is really good, assuming you choose the correct white balance.
