You can see with the app, what the 720p 2 mega pixel hd camera is watching and you can take pictures and videos and then save it on your smartphone. Charging the battery is very easy and is a bit “fiddly” compared to other cheap drones. Simply plug the battery pack into the drone on the underside until it clicks into place – ready. The battery is charged using the cable to any usb charger or pc / notebook and includs 2 batteries. Great experience customer service. Respond quickly and free for any spare parts for replacemnet.
