Here is a drone perfect for those that want to travel a lot. The HS160 Shadow Drone is a fairly cheap option with a great selling point – extreme portability.
Holy Stone HS160 Shadow FPV Camera Drone
Yes, the HS160 Shadow prides itself on the fact that its folded shape covers the same size as an average smartphone. This means one can easily take it anywhere without feeling the hassle of heaving around a bulky device.
The drone’s physical property is not the only thing that’s lightweight. Its price is also very light on the pocket, hovering around at the $70 price range especially on sales. For that price, you get a small drone that can fit anywhere, while still being able to do the things you expect from a drone.
It can fly for ten minutes at a time before requiring a charge. While it may not seem much, the small size and portability makes up for its battery’s shortcomings. It has a 720p HD camera one can use for aerial photography and video recording. The camera provides great footage for your adventures, and the portability means you can take it anywhere without problems.
This makes the HS160 Shadow a very good starter drone for those wanting to learn the ropes. It has its own dedicated controller, but it requires a smartphone to act as its screen. The controller itself resembles a video game console’s; so those familiar with it can have a smoother transition.
Of course, those wanting something a little more serious for aerial photography should look somewhere else. The 720p camera, while great at taking everyday shots, would not fare well with the more expensive models. If you want a good starter camera drone however, the HS160 Shadow is a good place to start.
