" ...  well guess what, they offered to ship me a new battery without further hassle or headaches.  ...  "
comment
" ...  One thing to keep in mind is that after you power it on by inserting the battery and have it paired to the controller, you need to calibrate the drone in order to get it to fly.  ...  "

" ...  All i need is more batteries.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Two reason-camera and battery. ... Although flight time is fairly good (I have averaged about 17 minutes flight time) the time to recharge is terrible-5+hours! ... My Autel and DJI Mavic batteries are much larger and charge in about an hour.  ...  "
comment
" ...  As stated in the headline, I think what impresses me the most about this drone is the range and the battery life. ... The return to home feature works great if you get to far out or get a low battery. ... If you are on the fence between one or the other, I would recommend the HS700 hands down just based on range and battery life.  ...  "
comment
" ...  get 3 spare batteries and have lots of fun. ... 4 stars due to having to pair each time battery is inserted.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Two reason-camera and battery. ... On the plus side, the camera mount will work with other cameras that have EIS and/or 4k video, but unless you already have one the cost of such a camera puts the total cost of the HS700 and camera upgrade into the range of a DJI Phnatom 3 which has a 3 axis gimbal and 2.7k video camera.  ...  "

comment
" ...  While other reviews extol the unit's features (which are well earned) I want to concentrate on two missing features that would really make this unit a true five star product. ... First, while the auto-take off and vertical hold is excellent what would make it better is to have horizontal position hold capability as well.  ...  "
