Holy Stone X400C is a small drone build for new pilots that want to have fun. You can use it for indoor or outdoor flying. It is a toy grade drone which means that even little kids can play with it. But if you are a professional pilot you can as well have some casual fun with this drone. The reason for that is drones agility and fast flying ability. If you are looking for a drone to make great videos and pictures, then please go search and read other drone reviews because this one will not satisfy you. But the camera on X400C is good enough for some amateur photography and some FPV fun. Also, some new pilots may have difficulties flying this drone, because of that I suggest you use throttle limit mode which will reduce the agility and speed of drone and increase the stability.
