I found I have much better control on speed level 2
This quad-copter is very affordable and durable. I’ve crashed it into trees, the ground, and even my house and it still works well. I found I have much better control on speed level 2, especially in the wind.
This quad is amazing! My kids have had cheaper $20 quads before …
This quad is amazing! My kids have had cheaper $20 quads before and they never lasted long or were very difficult to fly. My 9 year old son really wanted a better one for his birthday. The UDI U818A seemed like it had good reviews and was easy to fly. Well, it really is easy to fly and an amazing machine! It can take a beating too, having been rescued from several trees and a few hard landings. With the cheaper quads, this meant trying to replace blades within the first few flights, but no damage so far and the quad has been flown hard for a couple of weeks now.
great copter if flewn in manual mode(headless and GO HOME functions are terrible)
I have tested this quadcopter extensively as well as 2 exact 818’s. the copter flys well and can fly great with some simple mods BUT DO NOT RELY ON the ‘headless mode OR the ‘go home’ function, those functions are NOT designed well and are VERY wonky! if you use this copter in its manual type flight modes it does well.
SUPER FUN ! AND GREAT VIDEO !

An excellent first quadcopter with terrible instructions
If you’re looking for a beginner quadcopter that has a lot of features, but is cheap and durable enough to survive a few crashes, then the UDI U818A comes in at just the right place. Once you’ve gotten used to the controls (more on this in the next paragraph), maneuvering is smooth, predictable, and drama-free. Remote range is excellent, and while the camera isn’t pro-grade, it is good enough for social media clips and pictures.
This drone is a ton of fun and very beginner friendly
This drone is a ton of fun and very beginner friendly. I have crashed it hard many times and it still flies just as good as new. The headless mode works great and is definitely helpful as it keeps the drone going in the direction you want it to no matter which direction the front of the drone is facing. The video quality is very good especially for a drone so cheap. I have seen this same drone selling for $90 on Amazon just because some company stuck their brand name on it so it is a great deal at around $50. As others have said this drone is not very good in windy conditions. I actually had this same drone before and lost it on the 2nd day of flying because I flew it too high while it was a bit windy and I had to watch it be carried away never to be seen again. I had counted on the return home function to save me if I lost control of it but it didn’t work. I still can’t figure out how to get that feature to work on this drone so I make sure to fly it no more than 20 or 30 feet in the air when there’s some wind. It is a bigger drone but I have had no problem flying it indoors when it is a bit too windy outside to fly. I recommend buying the following items to go with this drone as you are gonna want more than just 2 batteries as you have to wait an hour for them to charge.
Great priced drone with a slew of features that leads to it being fun to fly
It’s a fun drone to fly. This is my second U818A, the first one broke a strut after about 13 months (crash landed too many times!) It was cheaper to get a new one versus all the parts, plus the new one has an HD camera and headless flight.
My sons got these for Christmas. After reading hundreds of reviews this ended up on my top list. We are not disappointed! It’s a great unit. Sturdy! Easily learned ( takes a lot of patient trials first!), does flips as stated. The battery lasted 15 min after first charge. Less now after many charges. Watching not to over charge the batteries. I bought extra batteries but they were 600 not 500 and are a tight fit. They practice over a mattress and have a route inside they have to master before taking it outside. My husband did take them to a sheltered park and they flew low. With any wind it would have been lost. So more indoor practice challenges are needed. We have only had them out of the box since Christmas (less than a week) but they have had daily use. My boys are 11 and 12 and are getting the hang of flying pretty well. We recommend supervision and instruction and direction for the first few flights. And involvement to help the younger set learn techniques. My sons are on the more careful side of boys and are mechanically inclined. They read the directions book first and nearly memorized it before flying. We emphasized that this is not a toy so extra care is needed. I related all the cautions from the reviews. We paired the units separately as indicated by other reviews. They fly at the same time with no issues. My husband wants one now. Highly recommend.
Really a lot of fun to fly although not the easiest to control for beginners
This drone is A LOT of fun to fly. Not the easiest to learn to control and the headless/return mode does not seem to work. I eventually returned it because I wanted a drone that my family and friends would be able to play with, this one is just too hard to control for a beginner. But personally I would prefer this one. It flies quite aggressively, can tilt by a large amount and can go pretty fast. The lack of automatic stabilization makes it fly very interestingly. I got another drone with good altitude control which is a lot easier to fly but not nearly as fun. In general decent quality for the price, I ran into some glitches here and there but not a deal breaker. This product could be a very good choice for some people depending on what you are looking for in a drone.
