Save 52% on this Holy Stone drone. It features GPS, GPS assisted flight, altitude hold, a 4K camera, and much more.
The main difference between this and the HS720G is that this doesn't have 5G Wi-Fi transmission, but if you don't specifically need that, then this is a great deal. Also, while this has a 23 minute battery life, it comes with two batteries.
