– Biggest con is that this drone is so new that instructions are very sparce (as of Jan 2018). This is particularly true for use of its more advanced features. Trial and error were all I had at this time, so please forgive some of the obvious errors that I made in the operation of this drone. But improved documentation should be made available with time.
– As it’s a new release, it’s likely to have some bugs. Hopefully these will be ironed out through future firmware updates.
