Rc Quadcopter Reviews and Complaints
Wish - Drone ordered was NOT what i recieved.
My father ordered a Drone with a 4k hd camera. It came roughly a month late as and had black duct tape over the camera holes making you think it was a camera lens.
I peeled the tape off and no camera, it was empty inside. The drone wasnt even the same name, it came in styrofoam and a bag, no box! What a joke website!
I WOULD RECOMEND YOU NOT ORDER FROM HERE, YOU WILL GET TAKEN! READ THE REVIEWS, I WISH I WOULD HAVE BEFORE HAND.
Wish - Horriable

Gearbest - Good online retailer with fair prices
I have been ordering from GearBest for the last 3 years. Every item I bought was of expected quality and there was never any mixup.
The only thing that might be annoying is the shipping time, but that is to be expected depending on the year season, carrier etc. I live in Europe so they usually have a special shipping methods tailored for Europe where you might get your more expensive product without paying additionally for customs taxes.
They also have warehouses in Europe for some items, and you can get the item way much faster in about 2-3 days, but off course this will be 20-30% more expensive than ordering the item from China warehouse and waiting 2-3 weeks or sometimes longer. Sometimes it happens that items arrive in less than 10 days, but off course this all depends on many other factors...
Gearbest - Got damage product its more then a month problem not resolve
As you can see in video drone is not able to fly kindly help me to resolve the issue because what i paid its my hard earn money
Drone Dotcom - Do Not Buy From This Site
I googled "GPS drones for $100. - $200." the search presented me with a page of sites selling this type of drone. A DJI clone advertised as having GPS, return to home, and a 1080p camera intrigued me so I went to the site, looked at the specs and features and figured it was not even a mid level drone as far as features but for $115 I could see a basic GPS camera drone being sold at that price. They are all over the place now. So I bit, I ordered one but tried to cancel my order IMMEDIATELY after checking the site thoroughly, prices of other quads they have to sell seem to be way off. Too expensive or too cheap., depending on the models I was familiar with. I was assured my order would be canceled by dronedotcom.com. Two days later I received confirmation that my order was shipped. I received a very cheap ..I mean $20. cheap. No GPS, no return to home, pinhole .03mp camera with horizon skewed to the left. Wobbles horribly in flight. I asked for a refund and this was the response:
the request was very simple and so would this process if you wasn't so impatient and unreasonable.
You elevated this to PayPal and so lets let them handle this, we don not pay for return shipping.
Note: The product is a toy "clone drone" and has had zero complaints other then you,
Because we also sale the real DJI's for $500- $1000+,
So informed shoppers know that there buying a toy for $100 bucks.
Hence the word CLONE!
What is perplexing to me is the fact that you waste all this time typing emails and complaining,
when you could have used that same energy to do your due diligence before you purchased the item.
WOW ! Nuff said
Drone Dotcom - Devious Shifty retailer
DroneDotCom is devious, DO NOT BUY FROM THEM! Listing said it was a 4K drone, and actually it was a 720x1280, they actually sell you a 1K drone.
Also listed the drone as a 1280p, instead of the normal way of it being a 720p. Cheap shifty way to sell a 720p drone. Cancelled immediately after placing order, once I realized what they were doing, and was told sorry the order was already shipped. A week later I get an email stating the order has now shipped.
They could have cancelled but refused to. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM!! Now I have to pay for return shipping, on an order they could have stopped and cancelled right away. Much better stores to buy from, try Banggood...bought Xiaomi Mi $463...got it within 4 days.
Exactly the right description and what I ordered. They changed ad somewhat, still selling drone as a 4K camera, IT'S not...even the 1080p camera is only a 2K camera!

Tophatter - Cost of returning items with tracking as required by their policy
i order some items which turned out to be junk. does work or not was was advertised.
i contacted customer service and they said i have to return items back to china with tracking information so they can monitor it. i went to my post office in Canada and to ship the item back to China with tracking is $102.00 xpresspost and $85.00 by slow boat with tracking. they indicated that they want the item back within 10 days and there's not way the boat will make it there by then. the item i bought was $26.00.
By the way how can they trace an item from china to me and pay $10.00 shipping. what deal do they have with their post office??? Anyway i have decided that i will not by anything else from Tophatter.
i like Wish.com as they will refund the item and you can donate it or get rid of it. lesson learned.
Gearbest - Nothing but Positive Experiences.
GearBest is a wonderful site that supports the quadcopter community. Yes, it does take some time to get the parts, but they are selling quality items at a great price. I buy Drones, every one I have bought has flown out of the box without any issues. (yes, changing the config and tuning does help them fly better). I will continue to buy from Gearbest. (so far have spend well over $1800 and have not had a single issue. Shipping has been around 15 days.
I have ordered 6 GT220 Firedancers
4 sets of motors, and am currently waiting on an order of 8 micro's for a small league I am starting...
Tophatter - Be aware
There is a reason items are cheap bought a drone. Underline price quoted $449.00 Bids start at a dollar and believe me thats all its worth.
Thing never worked right out of the box. Be aware if its that cheep its junk.
