In fact, this is exactly as advertised and well worth price. The q500 arrived early enough to charge the batteries, and my wife took it for a perfect maiden voyage. She really picked up some flying skills in short time, due to ease of flying in smart mode. We both can’t express enough how well it flies and so easy to learn how we are retired and find this is really fun with great pictures too love this bird fly swell camera is great, battery is fantastic would buy another if i could afford it only had Two complete flights so far, but i can tell that this quad is awesome. Take the time to read all the manuals it’s worth it. Bird arrived monday and maiden fly was today wish there was a hobby shop near me just for parts sake. I got the q 500 this afternoon and, of course, had to immediately check it out. It came extremely well packaged and the inclusion of a fairly sturdy hard shell case is greatly appreciated, came with two sets of props, which was also greatly appreciated and was needed.
