No, totally different, you're getting 18 minutes on a charge minimum and above 20 in calm conditions. You can get batteries easily although they are around 80euro a pop, so I purchased an extra one. They are 5100mah and are like a large laptop battery, extremely well made.

Yep, it's superb value. If you have the cash I recommend it. As I said, the delivery is pretty slow and hard to track until it reaches the EU. Gearbest support is pretty ****e too. If you can get past that, all's good!

Give me a shout if you have any further questions.

It seems the best accessory is a spare battery. I don't know for certain if spare props are included in the package, but tedpan would be in a much better position to answer those questions.

Click into the link above that and you'll have an idea of where it's at right now if i'm correct.

Nothing. Just reloads the same page. If I click on IEEXP it bring me here http://www.faryaa.com/user/index/pac...fer/type/track and says the order does not exist

I've tried the tracking number in aftership also with no joy

There's spare props included, although I'd recommend buying another set for around 10euro. I got a spare battery too which was pricey but worth it for around 80euro.

The drone itself ships with the controller, battery, extra set of props, charger, USB cable and EITHER a WiFi dongle or prop guards. I got the WiFi dongle, others got the prop guards. I've never used the WiFi dongle, just the included usb cable(the controller charges your phone while flying to ensure you don't lose connection). The prop guards get in the way of the cam on windy days, so was happy with what I got.

I watched lots of YouTube tutorial videos to calibrate the drone and cam correctly.

Hope I haven't missed anything, best of luck!

Really, that's weird. Have you talked to gearbest on live support? Do they know about this?

Yeah, seems they've changed the tracking system. The CE********IE tracking number only works when it reaches the UK/Ireland. They used to provide another tracking number that worked on the Faryaa website. It's missing from my android box shipment too. Really annoying to have no visibility.

Not on the live chat, but on the messaging system. Wrote about it a few posts back, and it doesn't make for good reading. Not too worried just yet though

Yep. That's the worst. Not knowing if €330 worth of stuff is coming or not.

Although I still would be surprised if it never arrived at all

Maybe chat on live support to them, mine was in London after a week but it took 3 1/2 weeks to get from London to me due to customs...I found live support good to deal with, just surprised http://www.faryaa.com/user/index/pac...fer/type/track hasn't updated you with anything, i'd get on to live support just to make them aware, would do no harm me thinks.

You could be right. As I said before, I don't mind waiting. But I don't have a lot of faith in live support helping me much.

Edit. Just reread your post. I have no tracking info at all to say where it is. It may have been in London as yours was, or perhaps (and I suspect) it is still on it's way to Europe. Either way, I suppose I'm better off waiting till the end of the week which will be 4 weeks from shipping and go from there.

Myself and logistic are in the same boat. We'll have to stick it out
