I just ordered a Holy Stone HS720 drone. It will be my first foray into drones

i've been interested in them for a while.

i have a really cheap one and can barely get it to go straight.

until i master my $25 one, i don't see myself going any further.

This one is easier to fly. Has a fast and slow flight mode, holds its position perfectly if you arent doing anything, one touch return and land, automatically comes back if the battery gets low...all kinds of features to make it easier to handle

Oddly enough, I was just given an Autel x-star premium drone. It's cool as fork, but the batteries are shot. They don't last anymore. I'll haveta pony up $100 a pop for another pair.
The camera/pictures from this thing are incredible. I'll check back in after I play with it for a while.

I have a DJI Mavic Mini... thinking of selling though.

Flew it a little, but it's been sitting in it's case for a month. Bought it for my wife's real estate, but I don't feel like getting the license with the FAA.
