While the concept sounds like a simple toy with loads of innocent fun, there was a multitude of complaints with the end product. The first thing people noticed was the drone's sensors. Many reviewers said the drone did not sense their ceiling, so it levitated straight up to the top. This sent the hands free mini drone crashing down to the ground which lead to the other more prevalent complaint. Reviewers thought the Scoot Hands Free Mini Drone Helicopter was rather fragile. A few bumps or crashes, and the drone was broken beyond repair. The mini drone fun also seemed to be short lived. Its battery burned out within an hour of play.
