4.The weight of quadcopter is less than 0.5lb and no registration is required for this model on FAA.
Headless Mode Tips: Flight direction proof is needed before the quad-copter is ready in headless mode. Set the head of the quad-copter ahead of the player and tail facing player before bindind the signal between copter and transmitter.and now the quad-copter's nose is pointing forward; this direction will be constantly considered as "forward".When the copter is flying in headless mode, player should keep facing the forward direction,do not turn your body's direction.

Decent, but great Customer Service

This is (was) my first drone. I didn’t want to drop $1000 on a DJI until I knew how to fly. This little guy is a great drone. I will keep this short: I didn’t test the camera or even use it. I just wanted to get a drone I could fly indoors and practice. The first thing I can say is READ THE MANUAL. There are things on the controller that are not obvious as far as operation (like trimming the forward/back/left/right). That said, this does fly well for a $100 drone. However one of the motors burned out after my 2nd day of use. So that was rude. Also I would HIGHLY suggest you use the prop guards…my houseplants would also very much agree. Here’s a list of pros and cons:
Excellent flyer! Best in its price range!

After reading countless reviews in search of a quad with a camera, I settled on the Holy Stone F181 and so far, have been quite pleased with it. The initial problem I had with researching was the numerous quads with 5 star reviews were from customers who were given free items in exchange for their reviews. I felt like this skewed the actual results. Who would give a negative review for a company that was giving them free stuff? This was not the case with the Holy Stone F181. Many reviewers have pointed out their exceptional customer service however I didn’t think I would need tech support as I am an experienced flyer. I did have one issue in which I reached out to customer service and they went well above and beyond to make sure I was completely satisfied. It’s true what they say. Holy Stone stands by their products 100%.

revised review: after 1st time out getting some video, copter worked fine, downloaded videos and every one was apparently corrupted. videos were not playable. yes there were some hard landings but they were all in tall grass. shouldnt have damaged camera if thats why they arent playable.
Good started drone
I got this for my grandfather who has been interested in flying drones. His health isn’t great so he’s been forced to give up his love: golf. So he was looking around for alternative hobbies. He thought flying drones might be fun, and didn’t require a lot physically.
While some of the other drones are better than this one

Quad-copters have been a little bit of a fad in my group of friends lately. We have guys with parrots, djis, symas, hubsans, and udis. While some of the other drones are better than this one, none of them can beat it in bang for your buck. To have a quad-copter for this price that can go up to 300m and stay in the air for over 10 mins is awesome.
Defective after three uses.

We’ve probably used it three times since we bought it. I tried to use it today and the blue and red lights keep blinking and nothing happens.
Great drone company and product, especially for new flyers like me.

This is my second F181 to purchase. I’ve been very happy with Holy Stone products and especially their service. My first F181 was purchased back in 2015. It had issues with the motors right out of the box. However, within a couple of days, Holy Stone sent me a brand new F181. They really work hard in satisfying their customers. That first F181 flew great for months, until my daughter decided to pick and blow dandelions while flying. One hand had the remote, the other hand the dandelions. Both eyes were on the dandelions. She flew it hard into a tree, never slowed down. She already had crashed it before and broke one of the wings. I duct taped it up and it still flew great. But this last crashed destroyed it. Now, back to the new F181 I purchased in April 2017. It has the altitude hold function, which really works well. My daughter can now hold the remote in one hand and dandelions in the other. I’m close to the Texas coast so we usually have wind. This unit can handle some winds, but it takes a good amount of handing. The headless system also works very well, you just have to remember to not move around. We do a lot of walking while we fly, so we don’t use that function much. Overall I’m very satisfied with Holy Stone’s F181, especially with this new altitude hold. This was also my first drone to fly. Great for beginners.
Great Drone! Great customer service!
I have many starter drones and this one is by far the best! it is sooo easy to fly and control. I flew this for many hours and flew it into the side of my garage! (my fault) It didn’t get a scratch but one of the four motors started smoking and was done. I Emailed holy stone and spoke with Andy. he sent me a link on how to replace the motor which I did and everything went great except the flight that was all over the place. I emailed Andy and he got back to my in 10 minutes and told me how to recalibrate the drone and it worked perfectly! I was amazed at the customer service I received. This thing is indestructible!!! I was ready to buy another one before Andy helped me out so instead bought the HS-300 which I will be receiving Monday. All I can say is “get this drone!’ Look for my review on the HS-300. I normally don’t write many reviews but I had to share.
Great Drone not just for beginers

Just got it the other day, put it together and tried it. Works just as advertised. The auto altitude hold is great for me, makes it real easy to fly as I am a beginning drone operator. Much easier to fly than those helicopters. It does not like any wind though, gets pushed around a bit. I am leaving the blade guards on until I get a bit better. It did suffer some crashes, no fault of the drone, rather wind and pilot error without any damage at all. The camera takes great pictures and video, although I wish the video were live, but it just takes a minute to put them in a computer and watch them. I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone looking to buy a drone.
Revision to first review below. Evidently I did just get a bad one the first time. Holy Stone sent me another and it seems much better. The camera is of reasonable quality and it is more stable. Still very tough to fly in a breeze but a good learner drone for outdoor use.
