Drones are one of the best science toys for demonstrating the principles of flight. But in the world of STEM toys, this virtual reality drone is flipping amazing!
Using your smartphone, the free app and included 3D goggles, you can experience your drone’s 360-degree aerobatics like you’re in the cockpit. You can also watch live onscreen without your 3D goggles, or focus on flying the Galaxy Seeker and watch the recorded footage later.
This drone is packed with features, from a powerful digital remote that can control your drone from as far away as 200 feet, to Auto Hover which holds your altitude setting for smooth shooting of high-rez videos or birds-eye photos. Smart Fly Mode automatically orients your drone forward. Home Beacon Mode is a brilliant emergency feature that brings your drone back if it’s getting away or facing danger. Prop guards buffer a rough landing, and trim settings help you even-out the awkward tilt many drones exhibit in flight. With 3 flying modes from beginner to expert and the smoothest navigation for 360-degree flips, this is the next-gen drone.
