A lot of fun flying this drone.
[[VIDEOID:1903977570b9efff5672496dff516389]] Why fun? Because you have the addition of the FPV aspect AND two batteries which is what every drone should come with.
So great to have an extra battery included since they only last around 10 minutes and when it is windy they are really working overtime and run out of juice quickly.
Easy to flip, FPV optional and good range overall. Not much to dislike here. I would prefer the left throttle control to be a self centering type but some prefer it that way and some do not.
I was happy to see additional blades, 4 so a complete set. I've had some that only included 2 blades.
If you leave off the prop guards and camera it flies a little faster and it is also quicker in terms of control plus you might squeak out a little more air time. I like the landing gear mounting on this drone a little more than some.
It handles well and video and pics are okay but nothing amazing.
Hopefully the video is useful in showing what to expect from this drone.

Way too much Fun
[[VIDEOID:ffadfbf23538f846c8caa69388ef27b3]] My new favorite toy ! I'm a 56 year old kid and I love this drone.This is my 3rd drone that I have bought now.My first was a mini drone that my dog chewed (my fault I'm still learning to fly,shouldn't buzz the dog) and my second is pretty similar to this one except that you don't have the FPV so you get what you get when it comes to pictures and video.This one however comes with an awesome screen that has the glare flaps on it and makes it really easy to see what the drone sees.The kit comes with 2 batteries and a new set of 4 blades should the dog get it again or if you just crash a lot like me.The kit also comes with the necessary charging cables for the LCD screen and the batteries,The LCD screen charger plugs into a USB to charge and the battery charger is a regular plug in charger with a red charger light on the base.This drone comes ready to fly and it is really easy to add the blade guards and the landing gear.I did put my blade guards on although I see some other reviews where the operator has left them off to increase speed.I also noticed that those operators are pretty good at flying and I am pretty lousy at it but I am learning and this drone is pretty stable so it is a blast.I need the blade guards and if you are new at flying I suggest putting them on.The drone is pretty lightweight so I have a bit of trouble when the wind picks up outside but I have discovered that if I keep it close to the ground the wind doesn't affect it as much.The flight time seems to run between about 8 and 11 minutes and the battery does get pretty hot so when I unplug it I like to let it cool down before recharging it.I also don't run it on back to back batteries although I suppose it is fine to do so I just don't want to overheat the motors.Mine also came with a 4 GB SD card even though the description says it comes with a 2 GB.I have attached some video and a few pictures so just in case you think I was kidding about not being the greatest operator you can see for yourself.The bottom line for me is that this drone is pretty well built,fairly inexpensive and really comes with all the bells and whistles of a more expensive drone.I did receive this Newest FPV Quadcopter,Potensic® RTF F183D Drone with HD Camera& 5.8 GHz FPV Monitor Drone at a discounted price in exchange for getting to play with it ( and loving it ) and then writing an honest review of what I think of it.I love it,like I said I'm like a little kid with a new toy and this thing is a lot of fun to play with.Great product,Great price.5 stars.

[[VIDEOID:cd89fa26e8be0131109733cf6e8f376f]] The video is some outdoor flying. For the full review video please check out my YouTube channel (Forward Flight).
This is a great little drone for outdoor flying. It's kinda big so inside isn't the best for it, unless you have lots of space.
I have reviewed this drone in other forms and have always loved it. By itself, without the FPV stuff, it is an awesome flyer that banks incredibly well and has excellent range and power for a toy grade drone. With the 5.8ghz FPV system this comes with it is even more awesome. The included screen with built in receiver gets good reception and is nice to use to line up video shots and pics. I feel the only downside is that the camera doesn't have a very wide FOV, so flying it in FPV onl,y is a little difficult.
Other than that this drone is amazing. Great lights too, one of the best lit up drone I have used. Mine came with 2 batteries and you get about 5 minutes on each one. The TX is a nice hobby style and my favorite feature is the dial where you can adjust your speed to any that you want.
Great flyer, nice features and just really fun.
