Save 39% with this Holy Stone HS720R Drone Cyber Monday deal.
As we move from the Black Friday weekend to Cyber Monday this beginner-friendly drone has a 4K full-HD camera on a 3-axis gimbal to capture beautiful images wherever you are. The drone has a follow-me and auto-return mode so you can take video and timelapses of landscapes hands-free.
You can get the Holy Stone HS720R Drone on sale right now for $244.99 at Amazon.
We reviewed the very similar Holy Stone HS720G drone and rated it 3 stars. It's not a high-quality product but it is one of the best drones for beginners, standing out with its ease-of-use and GPS positioning.
Its sister model the HS720R boasts a 10,000-feet video transmission range, and its powerful brushless motor is impressive for the modest price tag. The 26-minute battery life is also half-decent, not competing with top models from DJI but holding its own against other budget models.
$244.99 is very cheap for a fully-fledged drone with lots of functionality. This is the cheapest it's ever been on Amazon, so we'd recommend you get in on this deal if you want to hone your flying skills.

Consensus: The Holy Stone HS720R is a beginner-friendly drone with great functionality and a powerful motor.
Buy if: You're a beginner looking to get into flying drones, and don't want to spend too much on the hobby just yet.
Don't buy if: You're a seasoned drone flyer and want to capture the most stunning images - this drone isn't top of the range when it comes to image quality.
We think the DJI Mavic 3 Pro is the best drone out there - it comes with three cameras and would suit professionals and hobbyists alike.
