    I don't know where this little FPV quad came from, it was just here.

    It has altitude hold, so I thought it might be fun to fly. Unfortunately, we usually have a blasting wind around here these days. It's pretty fast, perhaps intended for racing, so it handles wind pretty well. The altitude hold does not work very well and it will suddenly drop to near the ground. You control altitude with up and down buttons, but it climbs very slowly. To use the stick to control altitude, you have to turn off altitude hold.

    I don't have any flight videos as the video seems to turn off as soon as you take off. I have a few sitting on the ground.

    The phone app is pretty cool, except it uses a lot of your phone battery while you're not using it. The phone holder won't hold my phone.

    Oh, yes. The camera points down at a fixed 45 degrees and can't be adjusted.

    Warm, sunny and calm today. I still haven't managed ti shoot a video, but I have found that it handles quite nicely if you turn off altitude hold and just fly it.
