READ THIS TO CLARIFY BAD REVIEWS!!!!
Really cool drone, now I have a free controllable replacement.

I just received a brand new HS170. The right front motor is bad. I does not spin up with the other motors. It starts late and makes it uncontrollable. I did just contact Holy Stone and they said they would give me a new motor which I can install myself. OK, I’ve seen the video and I can do that easily enough. But I will have to wait until this happens and I can fly it properly. Then I will edit this review.
READ THIS…Great drone…but there is a design flaw in the battery compartment

First off, I’d like to say I really love this drone. I got it as a Christmas present so I have had it for almost a month. Within the first week I flew it everyday and even invested in 6 extra batteries and a carrying case to keep it protected. I haven’t had any big crashes yet but the durability seems good, the 3 option speed control is great, (beginner, intermediate, FAST), it’s great indoors and outdoors, and overall it’s just a great drone. However, the one thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the design of the battery compartment. I realize that the battery needs to be snug so that when flying it doesn’t come out. It would be fine how it is but the problem is the red and black wire connected to the control board that you use to connect the battery is right at the front of the battery slot, and each time you carefully place the battery into the drone it causes stress on these wires. After 3 weeks of use I just noticed today in fact that the soldered part where the black wire meets the internal board is starting to disconnect. If there is 10 tiny wires connected in each the red and black wire, then 2/10 in the black wire have completely separated and now I’m beginning to worry how long it’ll last. If I knew how to solder I’m sure it wouldn’t be a hard fix, but I don’t have the necessary tools nor do I know how to do that. If Holy Stone would upgrade this design in the future and made it to where there was a notch cut out in the back of the shell, there would be a place for the red and black wire to sit and not get continuous contact when putting in and taking out the battery.
Great starter quadcopter!

After my son in law put a bug in my ear about drones and quadcopters I decided to buy myself a toy for Christmas.
In a nutshell: you get what you pay for, and you don’t get what you don’t pay for.

I’ll start this out by saying: I have been flying small hobby devices since I was a child. Planes, gliders, helis, aerocopters, flying wings, twin-rotor drones, tri-rotor drones, quadcopters, you name it I’ve flown it.
Tough,Fun,Quick and Cool !!

Just received my Predator today, shipped to the door in under 48hrs! I’ve never flown a drone before, but I’m getting the hang of it pretty quick. It handles well,is pretty easy to learn, and I must say, Tough ! I’ve bounced it into every conceivable thing in the house, including the ceiling fan ! Holding up well, 15-20 flights so far. Pet hair has got into one of the props, but was easily removed with the Tools they provide ! Also had 4 spare props too, although they seem pretty tough! My German Shepherd grabbed it and ran off with it, and no harm came to either of them. I would use caution around pets though, Common Sense, those blades spin pretty fast and could be bad if they get their face near it !. I bought this for my grand daughter, but HAD to open it…I guess I better buy another. Much fun, and I’m over 50 and love it. I like to keep it low and close until I get more confidence in it’s use. Many,Many great vids on YouTube on setup and use, which really helped me a lot. May have to go for the camera model next time, once I get the hang of it. I have to say the company seems quite involved in your satisfaction, and most people report they are excellent to deal with. I’m very happy with it so far, and 2 of my buddies ordered one almost immediately after flying mine!
