    I found the coolest little toy drone in the thrift, paid 2 bucks for it, came with a dead 0 volt lipo (I got it charging again and flying). Uses a smart phone for remote, has auto take off and land if need, altitude sensor and is stable as can be. You can also set maximum height.

    I have 2 3DR Solos. I really like them but am looking for a DJI Phantom 4 Pro for the camera and obstacle
    avoidance.

    Well I took out the drone for the first time after a soft crash when it got into a toilet bowl spin and the only real control was throttle. Flew it 4 times and everything went perfect. Go figure. Had some Swallowtail birds do some flyby's.

    Here's some footage of the neighborhood. It does run long.

    A couple of lads at work have new drones and we were looking at the films from them. The video quality was astonishing and they are extremely stable. The automatic follower functions (self flying) are really impressive as well. These cost around £800.00 each though.
