Holy Stone Final Thoughts

"Other than that."

I also added the remote protector and the screen protector. This is our first drone, never used one before. Wish I got a bit longer on the drone battery though. You have to charge the batteries with a laptop or computer. Without it the recordings would have cutouts and visible lag.

SP Gadgets 52040 Final Thoughts

"Ordered spur of the moment."

Pull the trigger and you'll be good with this purchase. I was skeptical at best, but decided to go ahead. But the misrepresentation of the angle will cost a star. Feels very fragile, cheap and lightweight. On the motorcycle helmet, forget that 3M sticky tape.
