Holy Stone Final Thoughts

"Or have a life."

Also a great feature is the One Key Return to Home button. It doesn't have that annoying buzz that some have. Batteries, no reason to stress them like that. Bigger drones will cost much more with more battery life. The durability of this Holy Stone is ridiculous.
