Awesome control and great flying range, a lot of beginners preferred to buy this model of drone in the year 2016. The ease of navigation is obvious because even a three year old kid can easily maneuver it. It is feature rich and can avoid obstacles. Super camera and great GPS signal made this the most desirable machine of the previous year.

Here is UDI 818A Quadcopter review:

Have you seen a quad flip?

When the 818a is in the air, it is fun to see it rise up to 10 feet mid air and then does flips. The drone may have to be navigated safely from there otherwise there is a danger of it crashing. But when you master the 818A, it is great for doing stunts. The ease of learning the controls is very good and it can be mastered in a matter of an hour.
