For those who have never piloted a quadcopter, but don’t want to burn their cash on cheap plastic, the TRNDlabs Spectre offers a high-end feel with a gentle learning curve. It’s being offered in the Boing Boing Store now for $92.99.
To help you quickly get the hang of flying, this drone features a beginner mode with several handy flight-assist functions. It’s capable of super-simple takeoffs and landings, and can hold its present altitude steady to assist with capturing crisp photos and smooth videos with the onboard HD camera. When you’re ready to take the training wheels off (or if they were off to begin with), you can pull off precise stunts with first-person POV using the separately-sold IRIS VR goggles. Its controller even has a dedicated mount for your phone to provide quick access to camera controls.
The TRNDlabs Spectre Drone has an MSRP of $149.99, but you can pick one up here for $92.99.
