    "Though the DJI Spark RC Quadcopter has a lot of really amazing features, I am not sure it is worth the price. The sensors are really impressive, so it's really responsive. I guess I'd rather get something that I would be comfortable being rough and tumble with."

    "Really decent drone for the price. Bought this and I expected it to just blow up once I launched it considering the price but it flew and responded very well. Can't say it was the best flying experience I've had with drones but it was definitely a good one."

    "This was a huge hit at my family's house last Christmas. This drone is tiny, unlike the massive Phantom - and it's so simple even the kids can fly it. But it can avoid obstacles, film in 4K, and fly for miles - this is great fun for everyone, and a great introduction to drone-flying as a hobby. My family loved it - and yours will too!"

    "A little pricey when you compare the features to the cost. I like the build quality of this drone, though. It's well-made and feels solid. However, it needs a case and doesn't come with one. But, it's cheaper than some other drones out there and comes with a lot of nice features, and can be operated from about 100 meters. "

    "Ooooh, this was wonderful. I'd call myself a drone aficionado -- I've been buying these since I was a young boy -- so you could say I'm picky. The Altair Aerial #AA108 Drone, despite its low price point (you can rarely get anything decent for under $200 these days!) has worked like a charm for me for nine months. I used it to win the recent Aerial Drone Contest and it has already paid for itself with those winnings. Pros: it is incredibly maneuverable, almost as if you are in the cockpit yourself as a tiny version of yourself, piloting it. No latency whatsoever, which allows you to pull off lots of cool tricks. Cons: not many, other than the paint being a bit cheap and prone to peeling -- nothing a quick recoating can't fix. Definitely a good purchase."

    "The IRIS is an easy to set up out of the box drone that includes everything you need. The user manual was pretty specific and helped me get it running in short order. The options are pretty sparse on this model, but it's upgradeable and no money is wasted on things you may never need."
