Quoting self for @Ravers; as we found out the pictures are pants on the cheapo drones. Also we found out that they f**k off as soon as you move the sticks, and then they lose contact with the controller. Reading your Hobby Drones thread, agreed there is no comparison with the drone you're now using.
[ Christmas post] Drones can be good, and they can be deadly. Got a little one for £80 for the grandkids last summer for use on the field, out of harm's way, we thought. The little wi-fi VR pocket drone (140x80x70mm folded) in its carry case with all the gubbins, easily fits into a little day sack. It's only 295x285x65mm when unfolded, weighs 133g, and you get about 8 minutes flight from the charge.
It hovers nicely at 50-60ft and revolves for 360 video or photos. The kids can even make it hover nicely in the front room. For beginners a stationery hover at height over nice landscapes will get you decent footage worth watching. It's when you start moving it that the problems start. Chances are it will just fcuk off like ours did.
