  1. Looks like most every other drone in the $150 to $300 price range where what I look at more in that price range is the cost of additional batteries, replacement props and the number of vendors that actually carry those parts for it. Kind of stinks when you purchase a drone, then realize you want additional batteries or replacement props and find out the hard way they cost an arm and leg or they're not available for purchase on Amazon or Ebay.
  2. Just out of curiosity and possible further trouble shooting, have you tried the RTH on the Ophelia app screem as well as the remote? Just thinking, maybe there's the possibility of just a problem with the remote RTH button.
  3. Hi folks, I own a Holy Stone HS700D and a Potensic D85 drone. For the life of me I can't get the follow me feature to work on either of these drones. I use them with a Samsung Galaxy S9 phone connected via Wifi. When I turn on the follow me feature using the phone app, it turns on and then the drone just hovers in one location and doesn't follow me, no matter how close or far away from it I go. Anyone else own either of these drones and have been able to get the Follow me feature to work?
  4. I Colin, I also own a HS 700D. I haven't had any problems with the return to home. What I'm having problems with getting to work is the follow me feature. So maybe we could help each other out? What I have noticed is that I need to do a gyro calibration after each time I power off the drone. Are you able to successfully do the gyro calibration? Before you take off, the front lights should be solid red and the rear lights should be solid green. I also notice where I fly I typically get 15-17 satellites locked on. How many satellite locks are you seeing on your remote? Just an observation. When I press the return to home button on the remote, it will immediately start coming back to the location where I took off at, but when it reaches that area it will tend to hover for some time before it starts to descend for landing but if I wait long enough, it does gradually start to descend and land. Is follow me been working for you?
  5. Thanks for your reviews. I'm in that under $200 enthusiast club. I recently purchased the Holy Stone HS700D and Potensic D85. From my current understanding these are each company's flagship drones. Any particular reason these drones don't appear on your list while others from those same company's do? My only thought was that maybe their price exceeded the $200 price point? However, the Potensic D85 at regular price is at $200. Potensic D85 https://www.amazon.com/Potensic-Camera-Quadcopter-Brushless-Follow/dp/B07QST73NM/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Potensic+D85+drone&qid=1586138186&s=hi&sr=8-1 I actually purchased the HS700D during a sale on Amazon for $185, but normal price is around $250 but is often discounted. https://www.amazon.com/Holy-Stone-Quadcopter-Transmission-Compatible/dp/B07FGDMC8X/ref=sr_1_3_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=Holy+Stone+hs700D&qid=1586138369&sr=8-3-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyVktBRjIxTDA3MEdIJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTQ0MTgyMUZHUUpFSEFSMkZVTSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMjM5MDQ0MklITFZTNFU0M0VESSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= Thanks for any further insight!
