This Ology drone is five minutes of fun. Great for kids, or learning to fly a multicopter. Not for the enthusiast.
It comes equipped with a movable (manually – up and down) built in camera that needs to be set before launch.
It’s very light and can be flown inside or outside of your house. Because it is so light, I found it difficult to control on a moderately windy day.

The Ology drone is fun to fly, for the five minutes or so the battery lasts. It’s ready to go out of the box with a charge of the battery.
You can get the hang of this quadcopter pretty quick and it’s easy to fly and do stunts. Be careful though, it’s made from a hard plastic that is easy to break if the impact is hard enough.
This Ology drone does come with some spare parts so you can make minor repairs.
If it’s the slightest bit windy outside, expect a challenge. Landing softly is hard enough, add wind and it’s nearly impossible.
Since the battery doesn’t last very long, I’d recommend more than one. You can find extra batteries here.
The main draw back is that the camera has to be removed in order to change out the battery. This is worrisome because the wires to the camera feel a bit flimsy and loose.
The camera is reminiscent of the kind found on high end flip phones of the early 2000’s. It works, and takes good photos, but as you climb the video feed gets choppy.
Overall, this is a great toy that will entertain you for about 5 minutes. Then you’ll have to find something else to do for the next hour while it charges back up.
The price for the Ology drone doesn’t seem to match what you get. It’s fun and would probably be a good starter multirotor flyer, but there are others out there that are just as fun for a lower sticker price.
