TLDR: This nifty 4K drone model brings together precision flying ability with a 4K-ready camera for stellar images and video at a price tag under $80.
We could say the holidays are right around the corner and help you justify it that way. But seriously…do you really need justification to buy a drone? Whether you’re looking for a craft to capture incredible video footage, one to ramp up your flying skills, or just one to fill out somebody else’s wishlist, drones are so capable and inexpensive now that you really don’t have to talk yourself into much before buying one.
Of course, it helps if the option on the table has checked as many boxes as this GPS 106 Pro with Dual HD 4K Camera Drone from Genius Depot ($74.95, 16 percent off, from TNW Deals).
As a flyer, this aircraft controller slips into most hands like a glove. Connecting in seconds to any smartphone or even a wireless gaming controller, this headless drone is configured for easy takeoffs — and similarly easy flight paths. The foldable wing design makes it especially easy to deploy or and get a stable flight from this sturdy craft. There’s even a one key automatic return that sends the drone instantly back to its starting point with a single button press.
Speaking of flight stability, this drone is built for an exceptionally smooth flight, with a 3-axis gyroscope for even more maneuverability, as well as an altitude hold mode function to effectively lock the aircraft into a stable position for better images and video. It has a control distance of almost ¾ of a mile to allow for easy navigation, even when flying at higher highs or over longer distances.
This drone doesn’t disappoint on that score either, employing a 4K HD camera capable of capturing details four times more precise than with full HD 1080 pixel video. Whether you want to take gorgeous aerial images or shoot 4K quality video during flight, this array has all the abilities to grab just the shots pilots are looking for.
Retailing for $89, the GPS 106 Pro with Dual HD 4K Camera Drone is available now for almost $15 off, down to just $74.95 with the current offer. Plus, shoppers will get an extra treat: a $10 in-store credit for use with their next TNW Deals store purchase.
