  2. Turn on the controller by using the bottom middle switch (left to right).

The review
I purchased two E010 drones at a car boot sale in 2019 and gave them away as presents to relatives. I wasn’t that good at flying the drone and prefer a remote controlled helicopter I own.

I didn’t pay a lot of money for the drones and realised the cheap purchase was a good way for me to learn a bit about flying small drones. I crashed a drone many times and didn’t see any damage to the drone. Perhaps I was lucky I didn’t damage it!

I never used the drone outdoors so I don’t know how well it would’ve worked outside. There are people that can write a better review than me about this drone. However my personal opinion is that at the right price, it’s a bit of fun for a very short period of time.
