Drones have been one of the biggest tech stories of the last few years. Fortunately, drone technology is now cheap enough for the casual hobbyist. If you’re looking to fly without making a major financial commitment, our DT Shop currently offers World Tech Toys’ Prowler HD Camera Spy Drone for $140, a savings of $80.
The Prowler HD Camera Spy Drone features an Easy Mode button, which keeps the drone within your line of sight by limiting its flight direction based on your actual standing position. This prevents first-time pilots from accidentally flying their drone off into the distance. The quadricopter also features a built-in gyroscope and adjustable trim setting for better stability and control when flying.
Basic aerial stunts are pre-programmed into your drone via a Flip Mode button, which automatically makes your drone flip as it rips through the sky.
The Prowler HD Camera Spy Drone also features a built-in 720p HD camera that lets you take aerial photography and videos without having to purchase or attach any additional equipment. The camera has built-in image stabilization to prevent overly shaky videos. All media is saved onto the included 4GB MicroSD card.
The 3-speed drone is controlled at all times via its 2.4GHz transmitter, the latter of which features a built-in LCD that shows the drone’s real-time settings and configuration.
The Prowler HD Camera Spy Drone is currently $80 off and includes free shipping. It comes with four spare rotor blades, a 7.4-volt rechargeable battery, 4GB MicroSD card, and a USB SD card reader. Each charge provides about six to eight minutes of flight time and the drone can fully charge in roughly two hours. Six AA batteries are required for the included transmitter.
Before flying any unmanned aircraft, be sure to familiarize yourself with all federal and state drone regulations.
