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 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.
