Dropped connection followed by " impossible to connect" error message.
Fresh out of the box, it seemed fine, it played for maybe 3-5 minutes. After charging battery it didn't want to connect. After re Fresh out of the box, it seemed fine, it played for maybe 3-5 minutes. After charging battery it didn't want to connect. After rebooting everything involved, got it to connect but would drop every5-10 seconds. Managed to get firmware updated after many attempts. Same result.
Noticed my battery was already at half and hadn't even got to use it. The top got very warm and after a couple tries with their phone support, they only could pass me off to an email form for help.
So new drone out of the box is unusable and I don't feel like waiting days for help to arrive. Apple store promptly initiated return process.
I may have just gotten a bad one but since company not forthcoming with help, I'll sit back and wait until the product is solid before I even consider spending money on it again. …
