I built this little beasty up to be a backyard ripper and it turned out to be too powerful! The response I get off this thing is better than I get with my 5" quads, and I love how it opens me up to new tricks and maneuvers I wouldn't normally attempt. This is a great quad to have with you on the go!

DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people.
