I'm sure there's a better way to word it.
Nice one thanks.

Got one as well. Have a GoPro already so it should be great.

Took it for as spin this morning, first time flying a drone
Very impressive bit of kit for the money! Very responsive. Drifting a good bit in the (light) wind though so wouldn't take it out in a windy day. Battery alert went off as expected to allow a controlled landing.

Battery's flyable capacity is about 1300mAh. A true 1800 should fit if you find the right one. Might be slightly heavier but not a problem. An extra sled for one would have been cool to include.


BTW I'm not using the included charger, it could be fine but no reason to take chances are with two B6s here.

Not a recommendation, but some options - https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...0&postcount=11
I bought the sj4000 for €58 it probably won't arrive until after christmas. I have a couple of other cams I will try to fit but I haven't even had the chance to unbox it from the amazon box yet.
Also this - https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale...C+Camera+C5020
Also some recommended in this review (for the pro but the same mount I think...) http://www.dronesglobe.com/review/bugs-3-pro/

More than €5, but there might be cheaper versions elsewhere.

I haven't even seen mine yet.

Don't worry about it. I won't see mine for another 2 weeks. I'm abroad!

FYI - this is back down to £24.99.

So even cheaper than it was with promotional discount last week IIRC.
