The gyroscope system works correctly, causing the Holy Stone Predator drone to fly in position with no issues once trimming it, plus it is maneuverable and very quick. You can have plenty of fun outdoors or indoors because you will get accurate control of the quad. Also, it is very durable and responsive in the event of crashes.

The handles are responsive and smooth it seems like using a remote control car. It responds to your controls pretty well, and because of the headless navigation mode, moving across the area is simple even for somebody who never flew a mini-drone.
On the low configuration, it gives a slow response. However, it is ideal for starters. You can find three-speed modes that impact the rate of yaw with every level. Its yaw is yet somewhat on the shorter side. However, the rate of pitch compensates more than for it. The excitement lies in the high and mid speed settings.
Another problem we have had with this product is the annoying beeping noise the remote control make when the headless mode is active. Initially, we believed the battery might have some problems. However, it was, in fact, the remote control acting up.
An easy and quick method to solve this problem is to press the RC right joystick right down and then move it towards the upper left corner side. The beeping sound must pause at this stage, and you may start your flying without much buzz.
As mentioned previously, it comes with headless flight mode, that means the quad orients on its own to their remote control instead of drone’s head. This function is useful, particularly outdoors where you cannot know the drone orientation.
