Durability is not an issue with the HS200. This drone can stand up to many crashes and it even comes for a few extra props just in case. Since the drone is light high drops do not cause heavy damage. Your fun wont end with a broken drone. This drone kit does not come with any extra batteries so you will have to buy your own. Buying at least three extra batteries and a high-quality charger will be enough to make sure you can extend your drone fun. The HS200 is a drone that can be crashed time and time again and it will still work. The FPV makes it a very fun drone to pilot. Every beginner on a budget will have a blast with this drone.
Keep in mind that while launching the Drone is relatively quick and easy landing and retrieving the Drone can be very challenging and consume all of the remaining battery capacity. Drone Batteries - most if not all batteries used for Drones and their controllers are LIPO batteries and are subject to generating a great deal of heat and require very specific charging and storage techniques. LIPO batteries should be transported in special foil packages and definitely not in the Drone. Special chargers are required to charge LIPO batteries. Additionally it may take up to 2 hours to recharge depleted batteries so the Drone operator should be sure primary and spare batteries are charged when the operator and Drone arrive aboard. The Operator should allow enough time to recharge the batteries after use. Operators should consider purchasing a multi-battery charger.
Drone recover Strategies for Windy Conditions - Drones are difficult if not impossible to safely land in windy conditions. In most cases the operator either hits the "home" button and hopes for the best. Another technique is to line up the Drone overhead and "drop the Drone out of the sky" hoping it will land on the deck or cockpit. An alternative technique is for the operator to "hover" the Drone within the operators reach and then the operator simply grab the landing gear and bring the Drone down. The operator should be sure to wear gloves as the operator could easily get a finger cut from the propellers.
