Striker Spy HD-Camera Drone: $70 Shipped (Orig. $170, CA Tax Only)

Striker Spy dorne-sale-01

9to5Toys Specials currently offers the Striker Spy HD-Camera Drone for $70 with free shipping. It is easy to fly, agile in the air, and equipped with a great camera. It gets 4.9/5 star reviews from limited Amazon reviewers (where its costs $10 more/tax in more states)

The Striker is a drone that is equally suited to newbie and veteran pilots. It requires very little by way of setup, and it features gyro-assisted controls which provide steadiness for learners, and sensitivity for experienced pilots wanting to pull tricks. The stability is also great for taking photos and video using the on-board camera, although it has its own shutter stabilization. The supplied SD card holds 30 minutes of video or 50,000 photos, and the drone will fly for 10-12 minutes per charge. To avoid radio interference, the control handset uses 2.4GHz frequency. The drone is made from sturdy plastic, and it comes with four spare rotor blades.

  • Film 30 minutes of aerial footage using the integrated HD camera with built-in shutter stabilization
  • Take up to 50,000 photos from mid-air
  • Fly the Striker right out of the box, with limited setup required
  • Seamlessly calibrate in order to handle long-distance flying
  • Pull off tricks and flips in mid-air thanks to the 4 rotating motors and 4.5 channel gyro
  • Guard against radio interference with the transmitter’s 2.4GHz frequency

This deal takes 68% off the price of the Striker.

Garmin’s Varia radar and lights system alert bicyclists of approaching traffic

garmin-radar-system

Bicycling is a great activity for getting into shape but it does require a constant awareness of what is going on around you. Serious cyclists have often opted for country roads where there is less traffic and more hills to climb. The downfall is that there typically is not paths or wide shoulders on the road, which means bikes and cars are sharing the same space.

Garmin is setting out to enhance the safety of riders with a new radar system that detects approaching vehicles from the rear. The Varia Rearview Bike Radar and Smart Lights system puts riders in a safer position by alerting both riders and approaching traffic that they will be closing in on each other. Read more
