As someone who has never flown a drone and having heard the countless horror stories about how hard they are to learn, I was quite surprised at the simplicity of this little drone. I will say flying the drone vertically is a challenge, but the Juice button more than handles that beautifully (more on that in a minute). Between that and the speed button, I felt that I was able to gently increase the difficulty of flying as I slowly added more and more things to control.
Now for the Juice button. This button is a big part of what makes this five stars. Hitting the button in the middle of the controller sets the drone to hover at around 1 meter. Once there you have a pretty stable drone that you can whisk around your house. If you have cats, they are going to have a ball watching you fly this thing.
I really loved the addition of the trick buttons. It allows you to preform neat tricks that would not be normally possible on such a device. Playing with it the first time I was amused by the smoothness of the trick. My roommate saw one of the flips and was stunned I had gotten so good so quick. To be fair, the tricks aren't mind bendingly cool, but they are really neat.
In the box there is a set of extra propellers and a set of extra propeller guards, surprisingly I didn't need them. I can understand why they would include the extras though. When you have the speed setting set to high, this thing zips. Ive crashed into a few walls/ceilings/roommates/cats more than a few times. My apologizes to my cats, you were sleeping and never saw it coming.
Overall I am incredibly impressed with this device. Thank you TX Juice! You guys got me hooked!

i wasnt sure about a drone for my son because he has aspergers + adhd & a low frustration level but this was perfect & the AI se
i ordered this & it was showing delivered but we never received it..my son was so upset because he actually had waited all day for the mail for this..amazon reshipped it with 2 day shipping and my son loves this drone & for the price its very well made & has alot of helpful functions for beginners.
i wasnt sure about a drone for my son because he has aspergers + adhd & a low frustration level but this was perfect & the AI sensors actually work and so do the landing & take off functions
my son was able to get it doing all the functions & tricks its become his favorite toy but I dont advise for outside in any real winds due to its low weight it blows away easily but works fine inside & also outside as long its NOT WINDY.

I call it Zippy......
I have enjoyed the Juice Ai, I don't use the the juice button very often any more, it only really works if you have an open space with a floor like a shop or a warehouse then it works fairly good. I have a large shop space and my ten year granddaughter was able to learn the basic controls very quickly with the altitude hold feature over open floor. where it doesn't work is in a living space with furniture and such as it totally confuses the sensor. But for a little indoor quad it is very fun zipping around the house. Just make sure to set it on a level spot when you turn it on. I have not broken a prop or prop guard, It charges quickly, and the reason I give it four stars instead of five is battery life is fairly short and the controller is confusing at first, the trims work pretty well I am able to get it to get the little guy to hover pretty well with just slight inputs. overall I am very happy with my purchase. It was delivered as promised on time with no damage. I have not been compensated for this review in any way.
Update: After hundreds of charging cycles the female charge port broke away from the circuit board I was able to re solder it and it is still flying fine I feel I have gotten my moneys worth from this little guy it is my indoor quad and I take it outside on calm days but is so small that it is hard to track at much distance all in all worth the money.

Shipping was great packaging was great also I got this for my daughter she just turned 8 over the weekend she flew it no issues this is super easy for kids a great start for them they all had so much fun. It's a good size for kids also the controller is easy for her to hold and work. I'm happy with this item. And came with extra pieces.

Great for novice/beginner fliers!!
Flies great! There are two reasons why I didn't give it the full 5 stars. One is that you can only flip two ways instead of all four, and the other is that you can only auto land if, and only if, you auto took off. I like being able to auto land regardless of whether I manually took off or not. But, since this is not a very expensive copter, I can only expect so much. It's not like the Phantom 3.

I'm now the "most awesome" grandma!
As a Christmas gift to my 10-yr-old grandson, I became the most awesome grandma ever. LOL
He absolutely loves it and Mom will let him play with it both indoors and out. It was easy for him to figure out and operate safely (i.e., without crashing into furniture and siblings).

Absolutely a waste of time and money
The auto hover does not work. I put it on flat, one color surface and did everything I was suppose to do and it just took off ramming into the walls and ceiling. So then I just tried to control it without the auto feature and it work for literally 30 seconds and then quit. The remote would lose connection with the drone and I never got more than 3 feet away from it. Then it would just die after messing with it for 2 minutes. Absolutely a waste of time and money.

Great quadcopter for indoor and outdoor flying some trim is required for it to hover without it flying acros the room other than that it is a great little quadcopter and I would highly recommend it to a friend
