      Good, not great

      I had been watching the progress of this for a year when it was finally released in November 2016. I jump on it. But I wish I'd known these facts: 1) Warrant I had been watching the progress of this for a year when it was finally released in November 2016. I jump on it. But I wish I'd known these facts: 1) Warranty is about 6 MONTHS 2) Battery lasts about 10 minutes 3) It's crazy loud, even outdoors 4) Maximum flying height is about 65 feet 5) Product support is abysmal. Takes weeks to get a reply, and then the reply gives no information that you can't easily find by Googling The good thing (for you, not for me) is that it's $100 cheaper on Apple's site and it takes pretty good photos.

      Not worth $500 bucks

      I was so excited when I got this Hover Camera Passport Drone. Its great but not worth $500 bucks. It lacks many features! You can't adjust camera settings, n I was so excited when I got this Hover Camera Passport Drone. Its great but not worth $500 bucks. It lacks many features! You can't adjust camera settings, no on/off flash settings? it has flash but its not working even when i tried it at night. The flight time is only 10min or less! Can't access the memory through your computer unless the power is on, so when ur out of battery, you can't upload. The photo gesture is not working. You would think that if you plug it in your computer, it will charge itself but no. You can't buy extra battery? Do they think 2 10min is enough when your on a trip? It would be nice if it will display percentage of the battery. The noise is super loud! I like the build quality and compactness but for not worth $500. Sorry but I'll be returning this :(

      Bought last week

      Bought at an Apple store last week and here are my thoughts. Photo and video quality is good but just make sure you switch to 4K in settings. I shot some footag Bought at an Apple store last week and here are my thoughts. Photo and video quality is good but just make sure you switch to 4K in settings. I shot some footage in 1080 to begin with because it was automatically set to that and it wasn’t what I wanted it to be. 4K is way better looking though. The follow stuff is fun but I prefer using the manual settings. This way, I can easily adjust the positioning of the drone and lens angle. But I like that it has both options in case i don't want to spend time setting up a shot. It would be nice if it had obstacle avoidance in the future. Right now I have to be careful to fly in pretty open spaces. I’ve had a few crashes when I haven't been so careful but the drone is really a sturdy thing and no damage, so far.

      Decent drone

      Bought a while ago and there's a lot of like, and some drawbacks. - What I really like: Design is really nice, a really good travel size drone. The body track Bought a while ago and there's a lot of like, and some drawbacks. - What I really like: Design is really nice, a really good travel size drone. The body tracking feature is also pretty slick. Im still getting used to the new tracking process in the new app but so far so good. Gesture control took me a little to get the hang of but I think it's going to come in handy at upcoming family reunions for group photos, as long as it can recognize my hand out of others. - What I don't like: The 10 min battery life is too short. I bought a few extras because of this. also the noise can be extreme in peaceful settings but i have another drone and sound is comparable i guess. Still doesn't make it comfortable... if you're looking for something hassle free and small and battery/noise isn't a deal breaker, Hover is a good option

      ordered and not impressed, lack of REAL information when purchased

      My expectations were high due to a few video reviews that seem to be more of paid videos than genuine reviews. Here are the key points that I couldn't find onli My expectations were high due to a few video reviews that seem to be more of paid videos than genuine reviews. Here are the key points that I couldn't find online when I ordered the drone. I have returned the drone for a full refund via Apple. *Battery life is 5 to 10 min if you are lucky *20 min to recharge batteries *orbit/follow function randomly loses it's target, causing the drone to panic search. *the camera clearly has an automated vertical swivel yet you can't seem to adjust the camera angle, control only allows flight control of up, down, left, right, forward, and backward.. this swivel feature of the camera should be manually controlled by the user.
