How does the battery bust? Is there some way to avoid this?

LOL. Lemons can happen with any electronic. But at least the reviews dont mention this happening at a high rate or something. Fingers crossed.

DOH! Literally just had one arrive today that I'd ordered for $20 from China.. Drat! Can't get mine working.. remote won't seem, to pair with the chopper :(

Looks like I have this issue:
-- lots of problems with the controller's QC from what I'm reading..

I know this is likely a stupid question, but can I tap a gopro to this and have it still fly? :v (i'm looking for a dirt cheap drone to tarnish with a gopro, not professional photography)

I seriously doubt you could get a gopro on this thing.. doubt it could lift more than an AA battery or two,

Spend a little bit more and get yourselves a Hubsan x4 107C. It's got a built in camera and decent build quality.

The Hubsan is better than Syma X5C-1 Explorers?

Wich one give the most bang for the bucks?

Any others suggestions?

Thanks!

I received this little thing at the beginning of the week and it is a ton of fun to fly around. Battery so far so good knock on wood. I like the features and how stable it is comparing to the older helicopters

Mine was from everbuying from a thread a few weeks back...

Mine had an issue with not charging. Opened a paypal dispute due to everbuying account being inaccessible. Through paypal, i was asked to close the dispute so they can ship me another dispite paypal's advice in not doing so. I just did, lets hope they don't try to scam me of $9.

Can this lift at least a few grams extra weight? I am thinking Raspberry Pi zero + camera module. I guess I need some extremely lightweight battery to power the Pi for a few minutes.
No way I would pay more for a unit with camera, that's just so not RFD!
