Flytec T17 Folding Optical Flow Follow Me Gesture Drone Flight Test Review

This toy drone includes automatic hover, tracking, gesture, and waypoint capability. Find it here https://goo.gl/4mf84C

Pros
– Optical flow hover tracking that works reasonably well. It may drift a little in wind on takeoff, but it eventually activates for steady hover.
– 720p front camera with swivel lens. Belly optical flow camera can also be used for videos and pictures.
– Includes selfie gesture photo taking capability.
– Also has altitude hold, headless mode, one key return, and waypoint capability.
– Good flight time of close to 10 minutes from its 3.7v 1100mah battery.
– Comes with a dedicated controller for those who prefer joystick control.
– The drone can also be flown using its HFun app available on Google Play here https://goo.gl/y8Lf9e. Advanced flight mode features can be activated, and FPV video can be viewed realtime with this app.

Cons
– Its HFun app needs work. The advanced features of follow me and waypoint do work, but only intermittently and are not very reliable.
– Belly optical flow camera is not very good for photos and videos, and is easily washed out in sunlight.
– Proprietary battery.
