In the last scene the plane was on a thread

igrenade says:

let’s crash it numerous times instead of demonstrating its sole purpose of flight.

Cuda FX says:

an obviously expensive looking toy with poor manuverability, crippled by shitty motion controls. brilliant!

Simple, effective. I like this idea.

I prefer controllable flight ratger than 1000 times durability but with 10% usable flight time

Saad Maqsood says:

They just Insulted the Carbon Flyer.not a review

Harlan H. mote says:

How many thousand’s of people have prepaid for this and never gotten nothing some of them have been waiting for 2 years and nothing. That is the question… besides i don’t like any plane or quad you have to fly with you phone it makes for very bad flying. I fly hand built Rc Planes from Balsa wood durability comes form skill not what it is made out of. just another gimmick to take your money’……. I am 51 years old i still have planes i built back in 1975 . The last i seen they were trying to get them manufactured in china.

Were there any wide shots of it actually controlled flying? I didn’t see any. Only close up edits which could have been someone throwing it.

twist Oliver says:
