Purchased the Hulk CH2 and the Elite Mini Orion for my two sons. The Hulk will not stop rotating even after adjusting trim to extreme. With the trim adjusted all the way (to the right?) and using the controller to try and fly right the rotation SLOWS to 60 RPM! The toy also vibrates and you can see the rotor shaft is not centered! The Elite Mini Orion flies ok,(I have to adjust the trim every time I take off) but that is as far as the good goes. I charged the "Live Feed Screen" as instructed. When I move thee switch to on, nothing happens. The instructions say there should be a "No Signal" on the screen but it is blank. I turned on the drone and remote and synced them. Still nothing on the "Live Feed Screen" I tried taking a couple pics to see if the camera works. The Micro SD to USB adapter doesn't work! I do not have any other reader for the memory card so I have no clue if the camera works. The controller has two assist functions. One is "Easy Mode" and "Return Assist". When I press the "Easy Mode" button the drone flies hard to the right uncontrollably and when I press the "Return Assist" button the drone flies hard left uncontrollably. I have emailed customer service but have not received a response. (It's only been a few hours but I don't hold out much hope). I though I was getting a good deal for beginner drones but these things SUCK!!!!

Update, third one did not work either. I was able to get my money back from the store.

Do not buy this junk. This company should be shut down.

Santa Bought the Striker-X for my two boys for Christmas... stupid me for trusting that they would work brand new out of box. Went to turn on transmitter for first flight and it would not power on at all. I can understand the possibility of factory (elf) mistakes on random units, but did I mention I purchased 2 of them and both had the same problem... Worst part of it all is that I had to explain that the new “millennial” elves don’t take as much pride in their toy engineering...

Same issues... 2 down!

No refunds but have talked to a live person. Don't want another as most of this stuff is junk? I think you got to spend $$$ to get a decent product.

No problem getting return authoration but takes a while to get replacement. Not sure how to get refund without getting BBB involved

Poor Product, Poor Customer Service

My son received one of their spy drones as a gift. Upon the initial unboxing the drone would not work. After several calls to customer service I was finally given instructions on how to recalibrate the drone. Unfortunately it still did not work. After calling again and this time speaking with management I was told there was nothing they could do. I was told that without proof of purchase I was stuck with this defective drone. I had told them since the first call that this was a gift from a family member in the military, so I did not have the proof of purchase and could not reach the family member. They obviously do not care about their customers or the quality of their products.

I bought the spy hurcules 3.5ch gyro rc helicopter. Flew it once and then the plastic rotor gear inside the helicopter broke leaving the top rotor and stabalizer useless. Worst product ever. I hope these *** artists loose all their buisness ripping off all these people. I have a severly upset child cause of these poorly made so called unbreakable helicopters. Save yourself some money go with anybody but these fools.
