    "Steep price but the camera quality is fantastic and the controls are smooth. The motor is high quality and I haven't had problems in the past few months I've used it. I know it's not the cheapest but if you have the ability, buy it. You get what you pay for."

    "This quadcopter is a nice drone that flies well and takes high quality pictures. For the price I can't imagine getting a better product that actually works. The only con is the battery, which is small and doesn't last as long as I would like. I would recommend this to anyone with non professional drone needs"

    "Parrot AR Drone 2.0 is a toy compared to DJI Mavic Pro or Phantom series. Granted, they are more expensive but the topic is to find the best quadcopters - not the affordable and mediocre ones. "

    "This is great device, and I loved it. The only problem was it seems a bit fragile, as mine had broken too easily. Durability should be considered."

    "Being in the wedding photography business, I'm always looking for ways to expand my service offerings. I wanted to incorporate videos taken from drones, and found the DJI Inspire 2 Quadcopter drone. It is fast, easy to control, and comes with enough memory to store it's 1080p video.

    "I am in love with quadcopter. I was skeptical to join the quadcopter fan club but after flying this I'm hooked. The resolution on the camera is simply amazing. Not to mention the range and flying duration. Those two combined features allow me to take some of the most beautiful aerial photography I've ever seen. It even has the tech to sense obstacles when I was first starting out learning to fly it. I can't say enough great things about this little machine. "

    "I think that this drone is okay for the money. It is definitely a lower quality drone as the range is not that great and the picture quality of the recording leaves something to be desired. The battery charge does last a surprisingly long time which is good. I think this a good starter drone for people who have never used on before. I use it just to practice flying so I do not mess up my more expensive drones. "

    "This quadcopter is basic but a good beginner's model. It has a dual joystick control that attaches to your phone and works pretty nicely out of the box. Don't expect ultra HD videos as the camera is only 0.3 megapixels. On the other hand if you just want to get a basic view of an area or have fun with a drone it's a great buy."

    "The Kidcia RC Quadcopter Drone is a very well made drone but not the top tier by any means. It's small size makes it great for beginners but users could expect to become bored with the speed and acrobatics very quickly. I recommend this drone for anyone looking to get into the hobby but nothing beyond that."
