Review: 31071 Creator Drone Explorer

Getting back into the reviews, this is a new for 2018 set that I found in New Jersey while at PAX Unplugged..

Box.  MSRP is $9.99 for a $0.09 Price per Piece.

Instructions 1.

Instructions 2.
Instructions 3.

Parts 1.  Not as much Orange as I'd hoped for.  Plates, Bar Plates, Clip Plates, Wedge Plates, Brackets, Slopes, Technic Bricks, Mod. Bricks, Axles, Mod. Tile w/Pin (up), Rotors, a Motor Brick, and a Windscreen.

Parts 2.  Plates, Round Plates, Apollo
Studs, Translucent Grille Tiles, Slopes,
Bar Clips, Levers, Technic bits, a 1x1
Brick, Exo Force Arms, and a Padlock.

Build.  Frame, Station, and a 1 Hit piece of Cover.  I
blasted these out during my lunch break last Friday.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Below.  (+5)  (The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.)
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  Yes.  (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  Great parts set but. it doesn't have that "it" factor I associate with great build sets.
