    Only 16min flight time is pretty disappointing, really means you only get about 10-12 minutes of real world flight, so you’ll need to carry a bunch of spare batteries at, least it’s re-chargeable via USB

    What does the fly more combo include? What’s the size of the controller?

    Fly more combo is pretty pricey, Not sure if I would spend that much on it..
