One feature that really surprised us was the inclusion of a camera in such a small and inexpensive remote controlled helicopter. We found its image quality wasn’t really very good, but who cares? In a drone like this, the camera is more of a novelty feature anyway – probably not intended for legitimate filming anyway. We thought it was a fun feature.
