About this deal

g. Facebook and Google, may combine that information with other information that you have provided to them or they have collected from your use of their services. Then, all you need to do is steer it - the single steering button allows for quick-response turning (only in one direction, but to a 4 year old that will be more than enough).

After starting building robots last summer, towards the end of the year I went the extra dimension and started building my first drone. The perfect drone for novice pilots, extra safe with a unique protective propeller design, remarkably robust and made of impact resistant plastic. I have always thought that drones would be complicated so I was interested to discover if Little Tikes could make drone flying easy for children to enjoy. After that it got worse until it became useless, with it being very difficult to control height, it just dropping to floor, and instead of taking off, just flying fast sideways and crashing.

Most of the problems in other reviews sound like they had not fully charged the drone, we made this mistake on our second go ( need to plug together.

We contacted Asurion (who we had bought the 3 year coverage plan with) and they refused to do anything about it.

It doesn’t look particularly robust but it is now 18 January and withstood the rough treatment of a boisterous 3 year old and others. The user can control the autopilot with a remote control, or with a companion computer that runs custom programs.

This lets the kids concentrate only on turning left or right - everything else is handled by the chopper. New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging . They mention that it doesn't work properly, the receiver doesn' t work, and the batteries are refusing to fully charge. Built from flexible plastic my first Drone is designed to last, absorbing any hits or bumps with little to no damage. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag.They mention that the construction is quite fragile, the propellers are very flimsy and the stabilizer has broken off. We will contact you as soon as possible, should this happen, and we will find a suitable resolution. I wonder if there is any kind of simulator that one could use to see how the hardware will behave given a certain flight plan. I've never owned a drone before (except for a micro one - the Hubsan X4), so I didn't really know much about it, and had to do a lot of reading, especially about hardware, which was never my strong point. Once air born an auto hover feature ensures that the Drone remains steady in the air avoiding obstacles.

The first time I tried a simple RPi program (takeoff, hover and land), the drone just shot up in the air, out of sight so I was convinced I lost it, but then after a minute it just came back and landed (it was an altitude calibration issue). And the battery life is very short Otherwise it’s awesome I got it for my son for his 5 year olds bday and he is obsessed with it! Great to start with but now doesn’t seem to charge sufficiently to make it fly like it did initially. The control unit takes 8 AA batteries, and the control unit charges up the helicopter, via a small wire from the batteries. We should know, because as well as testing it ourselves, we also had a very special four year old guest pilot who mastered it in minutes.

One of tech's most exciting gadgets, now even little one's can get in on the action with the My First Drone.
