Battling Star Wars Drones Are A Thing That You Can Buy

Propel-RC-Star-Wars-Battling-Quad-Drones

When we write about Star Wars merchandise, it’s usually just some stuff that looks like something in the movies, and doesn’t do much, like a lamp or a toaster or something. But these Propel RC Star Wars “Battling Quad” Drones are something else: they carry lasers that can tag their opponents, grounding them after three successful hits. You’ll thus be able to conduct some pretty gnarly aerial dogfights, since these are some pretty powerful drones too, reaching their 25mph top speed in only 3 seconds. They come in 74-Z Speeder Bike, Tie Advanced X1, T-65 X-Wing Starfighter, or Millennium Falcon variants. But since we’re talking about serious toys, we’re also looking at serious prices ranging from $325 to $400.

We talk a lot about drones on this site, and that’s mostly because people are pretty much in love with the things. So far, we’ve noticed there are two camps on the field: the toys, and the pro rigs.

That’s right, you can see what your tiny drone see, live on your phone. Sure, it’s only 420p, but do you really care? We’re talking about a $75 toy here, where similar ones are only able to fly around a bit and do some flips, this one does all that plus stream its image to you! You can capture stills or videos, and it’ll fly up to 7 minutes at a time on a 20 minute charge.

Deal Of The Day: 30% Off On World’s Smallest Camera Drone + 2GB Micro SD Card

a2d7aa81fef9a49f1c325017e62c960b05655484_main_hero_image

Normally when you see a palm-sized drone, it just does flips and flies around, but doesn’t carry a camera. The World’s Smallest Camera Drone pictured above however, does. It does everything the other tiny drones too, but will take videos while doing them.

This tiny flyer is the smallest drone of its kind to carry its own camera for taking epic shots in the smallest places. Four fast blades make this new quadcopter omni-directional, which in layman’s terms means it can dip, dash, zip, spin, and flip anywhere you tell it to via remote control. Plus its decked out with LED lights so you can embark on night flights and document it all the while. Tote it anywhere you go and let it rip.

– Includes a 2GB camera memory card
– Captures crystal-clear video & photography (rare for a drone of this size!)
– Includes LED lights for night flying
– Provides 3 speed flight modes
– Delivers superior flying stability
– Takes less than 30 minutes to fully charge up
– Moves up, down, left or right
– Includes side flight, hover, flip & hand launch capabilities

Best part is this is not an expensive toy to start with, at a regular $50 price. But after today’s deal, it’s $35!
