"Cool drone."

Those will simplify drone flying a lot for beginners. You have to charge the batteries with a laptop or computer. The liability insurance is worth it. It is super responsive and performs well. Takes great photos and videos and is a lot of fun.

"And was lost!"

This is the second Parrot Drone I have purchased. I was very excited to receive this Parrot PF070763. This arrived earlier than I expected from Parrot. It doesn't have that annoying buzz that some have. I’ve not confirmed the same behavior with Bluetooth.
