Customer service terrible. No where on the box dor dx-2 stunt drone, does it say you can only use it indoors. As a matter of fact it tells you not to let it get caught in wind. Remote control overheated so much that you ciuldnt touch it and smoke was coming out of it. Company offers mo solution as to why the drone list cinnection and took off on its own and is niw gone. So I will not ever buy one of their products again.
