The range depends on the communication conditions. In a big city, there is a lot of radio interference and the range can be no more than 300 meters. Outside the city, in open areas, you can fly up to 1000 meters. When it rains or snows, I do not recommend flying. This drone is not waterproof. My battery lasts up to 25 minutes in summer, less in winter. You can record video on your phone, but the recording quality will be very low. You need to record on a class 10 SD card.
