     I first bought the HS700 (which I reviewed and liked, though it had a few shortcomings), and I wanted to get one for my son. I find myself actually preferring this drone over the HS700 (sorry, son!), mostly because of the camera image quality and general ease of use. Here’s my pros & cons (and in-betweens):

    Pro:
    Super-easy to fly! Any beginning drone pilot will be able to fly this right out of the box.
    Video and photo quality is visibly better than my HS700
    Kit includes 2 batteries and an excellent padded zipper carry case.
    Compact controller folds up very cleverly in travel case.
    Flight times seemed longer than my HS700, probably over 20 minutes from each battery.
    My (large) Pixel 3XL actually fits in the cellphone cradle on the controller (without phone case).
    I like the feed-back sounds for taking photos (camera drive sound) and constant beeping when a movie is shooting.
    Much easier to access memory card (included!) in the camera than the HS700.
    Camera has an up and down gimble movement so you can change it mid-flight.
    Comes with a charger that charges both batteries at once, and it seems to charge faster than my HS700.

    “In-betweens” (not really pro or con):
    Software for viewing and saving photos – I found that I have to get to the prompt on the phone to “stay connected to this [the drone’s] network even though no internet?” and click a “yes” check box. This lets the phone software stay connected to drone for live screen feed (which is only slightly chunky during flight, but totally expected at this level).
    Not sure if this is intentional, but the drone would not save still photos unless my phone was connected to it. It did save movies without being connected, though.
    Camera is pretty good (better than HS700), but struggles with auto color balancing in high contrast images, which you can see in my movie. Some people might not care about this, but I notice it.
    Auto-land button could be dangerous if you hold it too long – it cuts the motors! I think it’s a 2 second hold to cut them, so it’s not “broken” but something to be aware of. Hasn’t happened to me yet, but came close!

    Cons (sort of!):
    You can only turn off “beginner mode” if your phone is properly connected.
    The photo & camera shoulder buttons are partially blocked by my cellphone in its cradle, but are still accessible. May not be a problem for someone with skinny fingers or a smaller phone.

    This is a very nice compact, “mid level” drone that they have clearly put a lot of design thought into. I can personally vouch for its durability – I lost it in the sun and flew it into a tree and the drone got stuck! It then chopped its way out of the leaves (!) and returned home unscathed. I have crashed my HS700 about 4 times (at less than 30 feet altitude) and its not even scratched and still works fine. I give it 5 stars because while it’s certainly not the greatest drone ever, it’s a really fun hobbyist drone and an excellent value.

     I already have an HS160 pro, which has been a fantastic starter drone but its super-portability and low price comes with some limitations that had me also wanting a little bit larger drone with more features. I’ve had my eye on the HS120D for a while, so when they released this version with the case and the two batteries I knew it was time to upgrade. The case and dual battery package is well worth the few extra bucks over the base HS120D kit that has been out for a while (the base kit has only one battery and no carrying case). It is a really nice case made of premium-feeling materials and holds everything perfectly.

    I have been having a blast with this HS120D, it is really fun to zip it around and has great battery life. I really like the dual charger. I also like the controller, the joysticks have good feel to them and provide good granular control over the drone’s movements. The camera in this drone is better than my HS160 pro, I am very happy that this model records to an SD card on-board so I can fly out of wifi/FPV range and still be recording. The GPS features seem to work well, the drone can hold its place hovering surprisingly well and the return to home works great.

    The camera in this drone is good enough for some decent candid footage to share on social media or show to friends, but it would not be mistaken for a dedicated photography drone, mainly because there is no gimbal and the framerate is a touch low at only 25 FPS. If you are trying to get a video to turn out I suggest making sure your flight movements are slow and deliberate. This drone is very fast and agile and it can easily turn and maneuver faster than a 25 FPS camera can keep up with which will give you rather jerky, torn video. If you turn, ascend, and maneuver around slowly and purposefully you can keep the camera more stable and the footage turns out pretty good.

    I would highly recommend this as a perfect starter drone to anyone looking to give the hobby a try for a low price. I am slowly working my way towards more expensive drones (perhaps eventually the HS720D) but it can be nerve-racking to send all that money literally up into the air, because you WILL crash in the beginning when you are learning. I’ve dumped my HS160 pro several times and even taken two light crashes with this HS120D in the one week I’ve had it (both times my fault). The HS120D survived both crashes and still works great, so it’s a durable drone too. I’m glad they send extra propellers and parts but I haven’t had to use them yet.

    This would make a great gift for someone who wants to get into drones, its fun and easy to learn on and forgiving of mistakes as well, without risking too much money if (when) they crash it.

    If you are interested in seeing the camera footage quality please check out the video I made, but be aware that I was forced to cut the resolution down to 720P in order to avoid a “file too large” error when submitting this review. I have the full 1080P HD edition out on youtube but amazon will not allow me to link it here. If you shop the way I do I often go to youtube and search for videos on the product I am thinking of buying before I purchase, if you do the same you might find my 1080P version of the video out there.

    Anyways, I’m looking forward to flying more and getting better at both piloting and capturing videos with this, I think its going to be great for vacations and adventures as well as just something fun to play with around the house.

    I got this drone about a month ago and I took it for a fly around my neighborhood and everything was fine, that was my first time, the second time I tried again and I said wow it goes pretty high once I lost sight of the drone I pressed the return home bottom and I never saw again I waited for a while till my control finally gave up and turn off by it self.
    never saw my drone again!!!
    and there was no trees around or buildings it was an open space.

    So I bought this for my Husband as a Christmas gift. He read all the instructions and even watched YouTube videos to make sure he knew how to operate the drone. First time out it went up the unit stopped responding To the controller and took off. The device is supposed to return home with low battery or out of range .. it’s obviously defective My husband searched for a couple of hours he couldn’t find it.
    I would like the company to either reimburse me for this unit or replace it with a unit that lives up to the drones capabilities.
    If you read the reviews there are others who have the same issue.
    Please help!

    Did some research on drones. This one had the best ones. I purchased to use for work photos and videos. Carrying case and product is great. I was out in my backyard trying to familiarize myself with it and as I had it in the air recording, it all of a sudden to a sharp right turn all on its own and took off. I wasn’t navigating from remote. I hit the button to return to the “home” from where it took off and it was not responding. It stopped recording as well so I don’t know where it ended up. I went out trying to connect to the drones WiFi and it would not respond. Not sure if anyone else has had an issue like this. I’m very upset I had for a one day and I can not recover it. I will have to save up and buy another unit I suppose. I’m hoping they sell just the drone itself.
