4.0 out of 5 stars | Great flyer - some privacy concerns
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I own two other drones - a little tiny drone and a largish drone, this one is right in the middle. In comparison to the other two drones, this one flies just as well and has basically the same features (altitude hold, headless mode, emergency stop, 3d flips...). However, my large drone is a little too big to fly in the house, and my tiny drone is a little too small to be satisfying. This one has the right amount of gravitas to maintain a sense of excitement, but not so big that you're worried about the rotors destroying your house. Overall I don't have any complaints, and there are some nice features baked into the remote control that I haven't seen in other makes/models. However, I one serious concern. The phone app needed to run the camera asks for way too many permissions (android app name: HSS2 FPV). It wants access to Device & app history, Location, Photos/Media/Files, wi-fi connection information, bluetooth connection information, device ID and call information. Too much for me accept so I won't install the app -- kinda sucks that I won't be able to use the camera, but that's not really what I use the drone for. But be aware of this if you want to use the camera. In retrospect, I didn't hype the remote control enough. It really is leaps and bounds better than the other two I have. Solid improvement other older models. Also the plug and play battery is an awesome improvement over other models. Much easier to swap and a lot sleeker looking.

1.0 out of 5 stars | Received drone promptly. Took it out charged the battery ...
Received drone promptly. Took it out charged the battery and went through the manual to learn proper set up process. I synced it to the remote and phone. First time flying it it flew off and was unresponsive to remote commands. Went and found it. Went through set up process again to make sure I did everything right. Second flight did same thing and can't be found.

I flew the drone for the first time and I lost it because it will not respond to the control commands and I was not able to recover it sad story it was a total lost. I was able to take pictures the pictures were nice and clear. I wish I was able to recover the drone my only memories are the pictures. 😢

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great beginner drone!!
Holy Stone has put out an excellent beginner quadcopter in the HS110D. We have another Holy Stone quadcopters and this one seems easier to operate. I took it out for the first time today and the experience was great so I was excited to share my views right away. (see video) The controller is easy to operate without taking your eyes off the quad. The display is very informative and clear so with a quick glance you know which of the 4 speed modes you are in, whether or not you are taking video. Your smartphone easy fits in the controller. I own an LG G4 and I had no problems. Four AA batteries are required and not included, but they are easy to insert with no need for a screwdriver. The battery: The HS110D only comes with one battery and is good for 10-15 minutes. As a newbie, you need a a wide-open space with grass or some other soft surface. It doesn't handle wind very well, so be careful. This is expected as it is a smaller drone. Make sure you snap the guards ALL the way in. It also includes two extra guards as well as a replacement for each propellor and replacement landing gear. The addition of landing gear to this design makes safe landings much easier than other quadcopters that have no landing gear. The card is easily removable, and Holy Stone included an adapter to plug it into your computer for transferring your videos to your computer. Customer service: My boyfriend had to contact Holy Stone for help with his first quad, but I can say their customer service is exceptional. They will go above and beyond to help you with any problems to make sure you are happy with your purchase. The only negatives to the HS110D: A second battery would be nice to have and watch out for wind!

5.0 out of 5 stars | Amazing Camera Drone!
The HS110D is an amazing camera drone. The app is completely different than the one I have for my other drone (HS160). It is so much better. The app for the HS110D is very clean an refined. Not to mention that there is a fairly accurate battery indicator inside of the app. When you are flying during the daytime and can’t see the lights on the drone, you will know when you have low battery. There is also a flip mode which is pretty cool for doing tricks, but seeing as this is mainly a camera drone I don’t see myself using that feature too much. The flip mode also serves a useful purpose as well as just for entertainment. Because the drone will not do flips when it is low battery, if you want to know when the drone is low battery you can just attempt a flip and the drone will not do it. The actual drone itself is pretty big, especially in comparison to some of the other Holy Stone drones that I own. It has three speed settings which is very useful because once you start flying the drone farther and farther away from you, it is difficult to determine the speed of the wind where the drone is. With multiple speed modes you can easily just kick up the speed to three and fight through the wind. The drone is strong enough that it will not be swept by the wind if you have it going fast enough. The camera on this drone (720p) is also really cool. I like the fact that it has the option to use the app and save the videos and photos directly to your phone, or save them to the included 4GB TF/microSD card. This is really useful since the drone app functions via wifi so since the wifi range is shorter than the transmitter range, you can fly it farther than the wifi and still capture excellent videos. The drone is also very stable. I really like the way it hovers in place. This is really useful because sometimes trying to take a shot of your family or something in front of a overlook is difficult. I’ve found that I can just fly the drone up a few feet and it will stay in place. Then, I just put the remote down as it takes the picture. The large indicator lights on the bottom are very useful, since they tell you multiple things. They tell you if the drone is connected to the transmitter, if the drone is on low battery, if the drone is in headless mode, and if the drone is flying without problems. The remote is amazing, simply one of the best drone remotes I have ever used. The small LED screen at the bottom with indicator lights is so useful as it tells you the status of your drone. For example, it tells you what speed you are on, whether or not you are in headless mode, if you are in flip mode, if the drone is connected. The controls and remote itself are very ergonomically designed which is essential for flying a drone. You don’t want to be worrying about the pain in your hand when you should be paying attention to the drone! Put simply, the remote is amazing. It is a very responsive drone and overall really great. I would totally recommend to a friend, especially at the price point.
