– Optical flow position hold and altitude hold enables automatic position hovering of the drone without pilot input.
– Dual 720p cameras provide views straight ahead and directly under the drone.

– No SD card for recording. Expect usual WiFi frame dropping.
– Slight downward angle on camera makes viewing the horizon difficult.
– Altitude hold is not very steady if there is any wind.
– Phone holder presses against the volume and power controls of my phone. To avoid it from shutting off my phone, I had to wedge a wad of tissue between the controller and the phone.
