EcoPower "IRIS" 24" Ready-To-Fly Quad-Copter w/Video Camera
This is the EcoPower "IRIS" 24 Inch Ready-To-Fly Quadcopter. The EcoPower IRIS drone delivers big fun in a ready to fly package while capturing video images with pre-installed and adjustable on-board video camera. Equipped with an on/off switch located on the transmitter, the IRIS records the fun from above with the included video camera and 1GB Micro SD Memory Card. To easily transfer your videos to the computer, the IRIS also includes a Micro SD USB adapter.
Equipped with a six axis gyro, the IRIS drone is stable and easy to fly. The speed selector button on the transmitter allows you to choose between the 30%, 60% and 100% flight modes. This allows you to increase the performance as your skills improve. In the 30% and 60% modes the IRIS will perform aerobatic flips at the push of a button. Once the basics are mastered, the 100% mode allows maximum performance and unlimited flips without the use of the flip button.
The EcoPower IRIS is 24 inches diagonally making it recommended for large indoor spaces or outdoor use. The included 2.4GHz transmitter delivers interference free operation and allows multiple aircrafts to be flown at the same time. Around 5 minutes of flight time can be achieved with the included 2S Li-Ion battery, and the battery is easily charged in about an hour with the included AC battery charger. Additionally, a complete set of spare blades are included, so you can keep flying when things don't go as planned.
The easy to fly characteristics make the EcoPower IRIS Quad-Copter a perfect choice for those that want to get into flying without breaking the bank, as well as expert pilots looking to have some low cost fun! Just add six AA batteries to the transmitter and you are ready to fly.

This quad just gets the job done. It's done everything I've asked it to, it has not let me down yet. The lights on the bottom make it super easy to keep orientation for midnight flights. I'm sure its not recommended but I even flew it in the rain with no problem. (That was some cool footage.)
The IRIS and HUMMINGBIRD are a blast to own and fly!)
The IRIS Quad is an excellent learning platform for a beginner. It flies very easy it hovers with little effort and can be trimmed to be perfectly still in calm winds. It is light and winds do affect it , it is foam after all .
It has 30%-60% and 100% settings on the Radio to slowly learn the in's and out's of flying a quad. It is very large and easy to see, it has lights that make orientation better in low light conditions and it flies smooth and easy , but also has enough power to fly very high and very fast.
I have owned this for sometime now and have progressed beyond it, BUT I still own it, it still works and does very well.
The first one i bought after a few flights smoked a board, and AMains replaced it and also because the cam cut in and out they inspected and explained it to me. I was using the cam wrong . So afterwards I learned and it did great.
The price is reasonable and as i said this quad does very well, it can take some abuse and still keep flying.
I would recommend this to beginners who want to LEARN to fly quads. It would be a benefit to them because again it is Large, it is foam,it can take some abuse, it flies very nice and stable, and would help them learn orientation and how to control a quad without paying for something expensive and breaking it before they got to learn how to use it.Plus it can take video which is always cool .
This is a very Nice Quad .)
If you are a beginner you will find this copter very cumbersome to fly as it does not like to stay level and not drift around. In flight I was constantly having to trim and counter trim/ control the copter even without wind this lead to very non enjoyable flying experiences.
Also the gears on the motors are very weak and the fitment of the gearing is poor. I had one gear strip while the tolerance of another was to loose around the drive shaft that the rotor was constantly failing
The control device works but is of poor quality even for Chinese sweatshop type stuff and the trim controls are a feeble attempt at fine tuning
Even at around $100 I would spend my money elsewhere)
