I have purchased three of these, gave one to my son. They are a great copter with good speed and return action, but one out of the three decided to dive downward into a tree at full speed. I got it back but with a couple of small cracks. Don't know why it did this. For the most part they have worked well. Don't buy it to take video, no gimbal.

Why is this listed on DIY Tech? Is it programmable/autonomous?

I’ve had two of these, Hubsan had a lot of firmware issues with this drone when it first came out. I hope they have corrected the issues. The video is clear but there is no gimbal, the camera is solid mounted. Videos will look jerky, but there is no jello effect. It’s a fun drone and looks great.

Here's a summary of what follows: keep in mind it's not more than the price you pay for, and you'll never make nice videos for your memories. Otherwise it's fun... but only for fun.
FYI I've bought the Hubsan H502S with Massdrop, had a problem one day after use and bought it *again* directly at the seller (http://www.hubsan.com/eur/) and I've had two problems:
(1) while making it fly around me, I was pushing "up" the remote control and it landed on its own (very suprising & more important: very dangerous if there are some people around you)
(2) because I was in a field with tall grass the grass "wrapped" around one of its motor and it instantaneously broke.
Hopefully I had the first buy from Massdrop, and changed the motor. Now it's working again but (1) I know it's dangerous to fly with such drones when there are people around you (2) it's very (very x 54) fragile (3) you'll be very happy with your first shots, but you'll be very frustrated in the end because the camera is not stabilized, and the screen of the remote control is almost useless: if you dont see your drone the camera on the remote controller won't help at all.
With my experience the only thing I want right now is a drone with a stabilized camera. I prefer to pay $500 in ~5 months and have a Mavic Air than three times $100 and have problems. I've (almost) lost $200. I've paid $200 to realized I should have paid immediately $500 for a Mavic Air. If you're a bit picky like me, save some money then go for a Mavic Air. Just my 2c.
Last but not least: watch the promotional video, you almost never see actual shots from the drone itself ;)

Massdrop finds it easier to just refund your money then to try and fix the problem . Not very good customer service if you ask me

I've been on this drop twice and both times they could not deliver, some sort of shipping error. I'm really pissed off that I had to go through this twice before massdrop decided they couldn't ship to Canada on the his one

I can't wait until these drones have 1 hour flight times or more. 1. What if you designed a motor that generated power while spinning and charged the battery in flight or 2. slap a solar panel on a mavic to get a modest charge in flight.

There's a net loss in flight time if you add a solar panel to an electric rotary-wing aircraft at present levels of motor and solar panel efficiency. If you need an hour of flight time, look into fixed-wing and lighter-than-air craft.
