Here you can find the drone itself. It doesn’t have battery or props, because you should attach props and insert battery yourself. It is a good thing that props are removable. Also there is user manual and many white packages. The first one has battery of red color. It has round shape, and it is pretty noticeable compared to other part of drone. Also there are six props of white color (two additional). They are very tiny, just like the drone itself.
Then you can find four props protectors, and USB cable for charging the drone.
