Hi all. I bought the h68w drone about 2 weeks ago. I looked at the reviews and thought it seemed like a good buy. I have previous experience with another drone I had and have flown a few helicopters. That being said, I found this drone difficult to control. At low altitudes it was fine. Landing it was difficult and I battled to stop the props from turning when on the ground. Now, take the drone to about 50 meters high, and it becomes barely controllable. The return feature is a joke. A few days ago, I decided to take it up to about 60 meters at the park down the road from me. Big mistake, having got up there, I reduced the throttle and found it started drifting away. No matter what I did, it would not respond to my transmitter. I lost sight of it and have not seen it since.🙈🙈. I did go to where I thought it had crashed and used the transmitter to see if I could get it to connect to drone. Having walked up and the pavement next to a busy road, I eventually got a spot where the drone linked up to the transmitter ( meaning, the red light on the transmitter stayed permanently on.) However, this is a residential area, where walls surround the properties. Lots of 🌲. I looked up to the closest trees and from the other side of the road, tried to spot it on any of the roofs. All to no avail. My only consolation is the drone wasn’t expensive enough, for me to cry myself to sleep that night. But still, I feel the loss. 🙈
