This is definitely a unique quadcopter with one key motion control instead of a traditional remote controller. You control it by gesturing with one hand like a wizard, and using the one button on the mouse-style controller. It has altitude hold and flies exclusively in headless mode which makes learning to fly this unique drone a bit easier. Once you have that down pat hit the forward button to flip and presto you are looking like you have been flying for years. This is an inexpensive quadcopter that is great for the novice.
